The Beauty of Spring

For me, beauty is a huge source of my happiness, I am always inspired by a passion for uniqueness, whether it is a sunset after a storm or the first buds of peonies, my eye can zero in on objects long before others begin to even notice the natural or creative presence within an item. Flowers are an integral part of our home, vases are interspersed on tables with fresh cuttings from the garden.

And when the opportunity arises it is imperative to take in a glorious sunset, which it is the perfect way to relax at the end of the day. This photograph taken by family friend C. Kelley in Lake Anne after a severe storm the other day was too beautiful to resist…..the sky is sheer perfection. Lastly, who can resist a delicious dessert for an after dinner treat, I just had to stop by the bakery for a chocolate cake to end the evening after a most tying days at work.

Always look for those combinations of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases your aesthetic senses and you will be surrounded by beauty!

And remember to stay stylish,

Art Break!

Several friends and followers have stated difficulty opening this post, evidently there was an error so, I am resubmitting….please enjoy!!!

Taking a few days off last week was my version of spring break, a vacation if you will to pop in to a few museums, lunch with family and friends, and design the garden for the upcoming year.

The East Building of the National Gallery of Art and its Sculpture Gardens are located on the National Mall between Third and Ninth Street at Constitution Avenue. The East Building designed by I.M. Pei houses the modernist and contemporary art of the collection.  He also designed the glass pyramids for the plaza space between the West and East wings, a framed skylight ceiling.

This sculpture by Jean Dubuffet is called Site a l’homme assis; 1969-1984, made of polyester resin. And, this gorgeous oil on canvas by Paul Cezanne called Still Life with Milk Jug and Fruit c. 1900 still projects an extremely bright palette.

Me in front of Hahn/Cock a 15 foot sculpture of a giant blue rooster or cockerel by German artist Katharina Fritsch. Unveiled in London’s Trafalgar Square in July 2013, made of fiberglass, this art work makes for great fun to walk around and view.

Stay stylish,
K
