    • DYSFUNCTIONAL
      A new way to think about art, and where art is that which an artist makes. Art is not born into a specific category, it is oblivious to categories. An artist can leap between modes and media as they see fit.

Icons of Summer

What is it about the time between late summer and early fall that we struggle with what remains of the season; pickling cucumbers, making preserves or cultivating the garden to yield a few more flowers before early frost.

Soak up the sun & surf near any body of water, preferably an ocean or lake before losing too much light. Escape to a seaside island or spa for a weekend of relation.

There is nothing like a steamed basket of blue crabs known as “Maryland crab”, which are caught in Virginia waters off the Chesapeake Bay, sprinkled with bay seasoning makes a perfect summer meal. Watermelon is a staple in our house during the season, which is used for lunches or snacking.

Seasonal storms blow in frequently throughout the mid-Atlantic, which create a cozy atmosphere inside when it’s impossible to get outside for gardening, barbecuing, or swimming.And, no matter where I travel, I always enjoy flowers. These are in a window box in Charleston, SC near the Battery.

Enjoy what’s left of the season….stylishly!
