“Mosaic is the art of creating images with an assemblage of small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials.” -Wikipedia
Summer is in full swing! I must confess I’m one of the few who loves a hot steamy Florida summer. Recently I got a call from a potential client with some extra space to fill outside by the pool (lucky them right?) Adjacent to the dining room and tucked into an alcove a new idea sprang to mind! How about an outside wine bar? Perfect for entertaining and here in Florida we can enjoy this scenario most of the year. There are a few things to remember if you’re thinking of investing in outsider cabinetry.
No pretty pictures of kitchens, products or art today. Just a heartfelt message I feel moved to share with you in case it might be something we have in common. As a full-time “wanna be artist” I’m always thinking about how to get more time in the studio to work on my art. I beat myself up regularly because I do not make enough time. The days become weeks then months then years. I’m no longer young. My days on this planet are becoming fewer. I know this.
At the same time there is my livelihood to consider and people depend on me. I am fortunate enough to have an occupation that involves unlimited creativity. I spend a lot of time in the car commuting and traveling to job sites. While I’m driving I’m off social media and I probably shouldn’t even be talking on the phone. I guess you could say, in these moments, my inner self has a captive audience.
Where has the time gone? 2016 is off to a great start. I’ll soon be heading to the annual Kitchen & Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas (KBIS) to immerse myself in everything new the industry has to offer. Today I’ll finish up my pondering of events during Art Week in Miami by segueing back into the kitchen realm.
It’s hard to believe another edition of Art Basel Miami Beach is in the books. This year I dove in with both feet knowing that really seeing all of Art Basel is the proverbial “unicorn project”. My best advice is GO! See what happens. You’ll see what you’re meant to see. Today I don my “art critic hat” to share my experience with you.
