We bought one of Napangardi’s paintings 8 years ago. A rain of tiny white dots on a jet black matt background. I loved it then and it is still one of my favorite pieces. She paints the sand hills around Mt Liebig in the Northern Territory, their ebb and flow, the effects of rain and wind on the landscape. I bought it through Artery who don’t represent her anymore – I think her work is too expensive now. But Artery still has amazing painters – not the big names but up and coming artists who are affordable. They also have an excellent online gallery and ship to the States. Great if you are looking for graphic large scale work
We leave for Sydney soon. Been diving into The Design Files to get reacquainted with what’s going on. Lucy Feagins does such a nice job.
Ray Kappe’s Los Angeles home is covered in Dwell this month. Split level. Timber, concrete and white. Warm and modern. It’s perfect.
Huset, one of my favorite stores on Abbot Kinney, stock these simple, bold cup and saucer combos by Anna Kravitz. On my wish list.
I just covered three great food blogs over on Purple Clover – BroadAppetite, My Blue and White Kitchen and Manger. So looking forward to getting into the kitchen with some new inspiration. The salmon salad above is from Sini, the Finnish grad student behind My Blue and White Kitchen.
Three Weavers, my favorite local beer makers have a Kickstarter campaign that needs your support. I came across them at a Tastemade event a few months ago and they make truly delicious beer … promise. Plus I like they’re logo design.
