I just saw the neatest idea for art today. I bought the December'08/January '09 issue of Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion. There was a story on the owner of Joan's on Third in Los Angeles. The story includes a tour of her beautiful LA loft.
As my eyes feasted on the beautiful photos of the monochromatic back drop of her home, embellished with whimsy and bright touches of color, I immediately saw the painting on her bedroom wall. You can CLICK HERE to read the entire story on ME's mag website.
The painting above her bed is a postcard. I was hoping to find information on the artist or where they are available, but there is a footnote regarding the painting that Joan found the painting in a Santa Monica restaurant and kept bugging the owner about it until they let her buy it.
Isn't it clever? What an idea. I might just have to buy a canvas and make one of these. Wouldn't they make a great gift for someone far away. You could paint it just as you would have written them a postcard.
I love it!
