slow me up: murals

I caught this mural by artist ANNE HARRIS in the March installment of the chic and lively blog Nest by Tamara. You can see others there--what’s great about Harris’s murals is their scale--that fruit might be the size of a child’s head. (The electric outlet in the picture gives a hint of size.) I’ve never been big on murals spilling across walls, but the bold refinement of this artist has definitely altered my outlook.

Hi Dominique, I am so honored to be mentioned on your site. I have followed your work over the years and H&G inspired me in such a big manner for many years. I will certainly get your new book as the topic sounds very interesting. I am fairly new to blogging (my one year anniversary is May), but have really enjoyed the journey. In addition to Anne being a talented artist, she is a wonderful person as well. She plans to collaborate with me on my April blog post about how color influences the home. It gives me great pleasure to know that you are keeping an eye out for Nest by Tamara. xo

Thanks Tamara! I hope you enjoy the book, and I've been enjoying your blog, you do a terrific job. Can't wait to see the post with Anne. d

I love the still-life, tromp d'oeil feel of it. Brings to mind an exhibit I recently saw of still lifes by Spanish artist, Luis Melendez. He depicts his fruits and vegetables without sentiment -- they are as pockmarked and imperfect and, I'm sure, as wonderfully delicious as those I will be buying from my local organic farm this summer.

Also, Dominique, I hope you will check out some wonderful melons done in mixed media by my favorite artist, Kathleen Volp: http://www.kathleenvolp.com/
