Last week I picked up a bunch of Peonies (as you may already know, I have professed my love for Peonies many times!). As I carried them home, they were a modest size, but after they were re-cut and placed in a jar, they mutated into the largest freaking flowers I’d ever seen.
The blooms must’ve spanned 8 inches or so. Maybe 8 feet, I can’t remember. I felt like we had acquired a new roommate.
Sometimes while admiring them I would think, “Man, there’s a reason why all those famous dudes were painting flowers all the time!” And then I remembered one of my favorite role models, Georgia O’Keeffe. If she were still alive, she’d totes paint these Peonies!
So anyway, indulge yourself for a few and watch this video of O’Keeffe herself, hanging out at her homestead in New Mexico. This lady was sassy.
+ These Depression-era photographs are epic. Is it any wonder the young lad in the first photo is more dapper than most grown men I see on the streets these days?
+ I have to admit, this line of sequined foot gear inspired by the graffiti of Keith Haring are pretty awesome works of art.
+ In my continuing obsession with interior design, here’s another good source of inspiration, especially that office space!
That’s it for this week!
