Not sure they know where they're going to end up tonight
An oyster bed (maybe mine one day)
I dreamt up this oyster bed after reading that the insatiable and extravagant King Louis XIV had no problem eating 12 dozen at a time in bed, he had them delivered fresh every day (oysters that is). I also heard that he put black pearls in his tea… Anyone want to make a prototype for me? (of the bed)
It's freezing in NY - heres a really delicious spicy sweet drink to warm you up with a spin. I make it when I have a bottle of red thats been open for a bit too long... and that happens a lot as I'm the only one that drinks in this house... oops I forgot the ginger... 1" peeled and chopped
Happy Halloween ...Scary scenes I painted for my daughter's school's haunted house -to scare the kids- which was themed around old fairy tales ....
New silk screen prints for the Met Opera
I've been away from my news reel for a while and theres a lot of lovely stuff to catch up on... The Lolly book I wrote with my nephew Cesar is being translated into three languages! Italian, Swedish and Finnish and it will also be available in the USA this May...wooooho! Theres also a big suprise for xmas coming your way... say no more. I'm designing new wraps for the Met Opera, inspired by The Merry Widow... bold color combinations below.....
flirtatious new Scarf in the making
Preliminary sketches for a flirtatious new scarf I'm designing especially for the Met Opera's new production of Franz Lehar's Austro-Hungarian operetta The Merry Widow. I'm printing it on a 36" silk satin square and it's set during the Belle Epoque in Paris (You'll find me at Maxim's). You'll have to wait till October to wear this coquettish little scarf but you can purchase any one of my opera scarves in squares or oblongs either through me (email me for some pics and prices and I'll send them) or from the Metropolitan Opera shop on line.
