A celosia in the hand...

Afternoon light and a December rose in the wind.

December 1.

Pale Lily Petals, No.2. Light meets dark with floating petals suspended on the page.

It was all I could do not to bring these little guys home with me. Please swipe for more kittens.

Flower lines.

Harmonizing.

Nicholas Eliasz Pickenoy, Portrait of a Fifteen Year Old Young Lady, 1626. For the detail, the light, the contrast, the colors, and the curiosity it arouses.

Frans Snyders, Still Life with Monkeys, ca. 1630-1640.

Detail from A Sylvan Scene with Flowers by Dutch painter Rachel Ruysch, who
lived from 1664-1750. This piece falls into the Sottobosco genre, which typically consistsof a carefully composed still life of flora and fauna set against the dark ground of a forest floor. I love the idea of juxtaposing something carefully planned and arranged against something wild, unruly and totally natural.

Last night was truly the best. We celebrated the opening of my and my mother's joint show, Impermanent Forms, at Galerie Pavilon in Prague. The Director of the National Galerie in Prague and the Director of the Czech Centres both gave speeches to start the evening, and I got to spend the night discussing art and life with friends, old and new. I'm so proud of what my mom and I did and it was so much fun that my face still hurts from smiling. A giant thanks to everyone who was there and to everyone who helped make it happen. And of course thanks to @neroneg for the photos because I managed to take exactly none. Please swipe for more.

Queen Chrysanthemum.
