Summer Classics

{Nothing says summer like swimming in the Aegean Sea, I had a great time last year testing my skills in the rough waters off shore}

Summer is fast approaching, and in a matter of weeks our gardens will be transformed into a lush world of color. Schedules will be altered to sneak in lazy sun-splashed afternoons to picnic, swim or just lie around doing absolutely positively nothing. Remember when you couldn’t wait for school to end so, you could spend the entire day socializing with friends, travel the country with family or eat outdoors.

{Slice delicious watermelon for an after dinner treat or pop into your Italian deli for {pasticcini italiani} pastries to indulge in when it is too hot for baking}

Well…. throw caution to the wind, enjoy a few warm weather amusements, and begin cultivating a few to make your own traditions. Write list of travel or cook books you looking forward to reading this summer? Friends have given me a list of shows to watch on TV or Netflix. And, even in the warmer months I always enjoy testing recipes to fit the season, such as an al fresco meal {eating in the fresh air} for evenings with friends!

Stay stylish,
K

Yayoi Kusama’s: Infinity Mirrors

If you take a rainy Friday, put in for half days leave from work, travel to the Hirshhorn to see the final showing of Yayoi Kusama’s “Infinity Mirrors”, you have the start to a relaxing weekend.

Upon entering the museum the first item on the grounds is an amusing and whimsical sculpture of a giant gourd called “Pumpkin,” 2016- courtesy of Ota Fine Arts in Singapore. Kusama indicated pumpkins bring about poetic peace of mind, and have inspired her since childhood, when she was surrounded by her family’s nursery in Japan.

Yayoi Kusama is a phenomonical woman who moved in avant-garde circles with such artists as Andy Warhol and Allan Kaprow, while continuing to hone her skills on mirrored installations, and dots and motifs. She also became the first woman to represent Japan at the Venice Biennale.

This exhibition will embark on a tour of five major museums in North America and Canada, and is now headed to the Seattle Art Museum from June 30-September 10, 2017.

Create stylishly,
K
