Are you a fellow pet lover?
I’m a huge animal lover, live with three shelter rescues, obsessed with Animal Cops on TV, and think I perhaps stop and say to hello to every dog I pass. So I’m thrilled that my friend and artist Erica Ericsdotter now is commissioning pet portraits. I just had Bubba painted as a present for Dan and was blown away by the quality, detail and expression.
I’m delighted every time she shares her latest portrait on FB or her site.
You have to stay true to who you are. And follow your dreams and inner voice. I met my good friend Priscilla when we played sisters in a movie years ago. After that she moved to Australia, and a couple of years later she came back married to Australian artist Josh. They moved to LA,A wife interviews her ARTIST husband
I’ve been dying to have this on my blog for a long time. Christine and I met, back when we both lived in NY and she was a journalist for a German magazine. Although always passionate about photography it took a life change for her to follow her true calling. And thankfully for all of us she did! There’s never been a frame or an image of hers I haven’t swooned over. She is deeply truly an artist…I wanted to do a video interview with her so you could hear her talk about her passion because it’s hypnotizing, but she’s in Europe. Reading her answers you’ll realize the incredible beauty comes from a deep source. Sit down, relax and enjoy!DEEPLY, TRULY an artist
ART. A much argued, discussed and personal subject. I don’t profess to be an art conniseur, I don’t follow trends, or believe in fads, or like something because someone says so….I simply love what I love, and go with my gut and emotion when I see something special. Beautiful original artwork with masterful use of color, imagination and mystery…I don’t know…what is it really that makes you love something so much?
When I first saw Melbourne born artist Josh Rosenthal’s paintings a few years ago, it was a painting of a dog that spoke to me. Over the years I’ve seen his art grow, big art collectors around the world and celebrities as random as Alan Cumming, Morgan Spurlock are picking up his work. I’ve sold a few of his paintings to my private design clients and everyone has fallen in love with his pieces, and of course I have a few at my own house. So to be allowed to carry some of his magnificent paintings on LiveLikeYou which we’re added today is special!Talented Josh from Melbourne
One of my favorite organizations is the Humane Society of New York. It’s been run my one of my dearest friends mother for perhaps 30 or so years. They work endlessly to help abandoned dogs cats, and whatever animal in need that comes their way. All animals are trained, cared and loved for, and given a second chance to happiness. I went to their fantastic yearly photography auction in New York last night. The auction is a great way to purchase amazing art for your home while doing something good at the same time. Many famous photographers donate their work on many subject matters. Here is my favorite selection of…you guessed it, animal art. I wish I could have all of these in my home!!A Girls' best friend
