I’m so excited for my talented friend Eloise Corr Danch. Her most recent project is showing her gorgeous paper flower sculptures in this summer group exhibition titled FLOWERING at Nancy Margolis Gallery in Chelsea, NYC.
June 19 – August 1, 2014
Opening reception 6/19/2014 6-8pm (tonight!)
FLOWERING defined literally is a plant in bloom, metaphorically rich, in full stage of development. The paintings by the eight accomplished artists in this exhibition fit these definitions, and were selected for their engaging personal expression, and styles. Their genre, unalike and varied, runs from realism, abstraction, narration, decoration, patterning, and embellishment. Flowers throughout history have been a universal mode of expression to convey feelings of love, grief, forgiveness, pleasure, joy, and celebration, so it is fascinating to see how each artist in his and her individual voice integrates the FLOWERING theme into their work.
I have been loving the Resort 2015 collections so when Vogue Nippon asked me to illustrate some for them I was of course thrilled to oblige.
Father’s day is so bitter sweet for me. I lost my dad a couple of years ago and still suffer from the grief of not having him with us. I know that we’d be with him tomorrow if he were here and that Henry would say ” I love you papa”. I can really picture how it would be. Instead though, we’ll enjoy the day celebrating my husband, Henry’s dad. Henry already made a sweet card and gift at school and we’ll try to make him feel special. He’s really an amazing dad. Every weekend he makes French Toast on Saturday and pancakes on Sunday. I guess I’ll have to step up to the plate tomorrow!!
Above is a card I made for my dad a few years ago…
I recently did some illustrations for the May issue of O, The Oprah Magazine. They also did a really great feature on my book in the November, 2013 issue and online here. So I was thrilled when they called on me to hand-letter an inspirational quote for their office wall at Hearst. Here’s how it looks! What a great sentiment to see when you walk in to your dream job each day.
