LES LACES

I found these beautiful coasters at my friend Emily Kroll's apartment, she was 
celebrating her birthday. I love wandering around my friend's places where in every 
corner there is something to envy. 
A coming soon side note ... Emily is working on a new venture and we will be 
collaborating on the first addition. Will keep you posted...

OPPOSITE PERSONALITIES

My boys made these.  I would say they perfectly represent their personalities. Khoren 
made the one to the left and Aren's is on the right. 
AUGUST SANDER

I could wear either outfit.

Commander in Chief, by Brian Tolle at the CRG Gallery
I was visiting the galleries in Chelsea a few months ago and found this exhibit. I love 
how he curated this collection of campaign pins from the past few decades.

THE FOUNDATION

Tony Smith
Untitled

Oil on Canvas
Shown at the Matthew Marks Gallery
 
From my earliest memories, my father gave me and my sister only three colors to 
work with: red, yellow and blue. He told us we could create all the colors we wanted 
from these three. He stood his ground till about my early teens. It was challenging, 
but from that I developed an amazing sense and obsession for color. It is also my 
most successful form of therapy. Just stand me in front of a wall full of color. Instant 
happiness.
SOLANGE | LOSING YOU
I loved everything about this video.  Perfection!  The color, costumes, hair... oh and I 
like the song too!
