Hope all of our East Coast friends are staying safe today and tomorrow through Hurricane Sandy.
While we all wait it out, a Sandy inspired round-up of art for sale online via UGallery, a great resource to find smartly priced work by emerging artists. Will you be shopping e-commerce today to pass the time??
An underwater photo with rich colors and a fun abstract pattern.
Don’t you just want to know the story behind this photograph?
Completely drawn to this rich color palette and love this large scale (60″H x 36″W).
Love these two paintings in artist Sarah Beth Goncarova’s “Rainy Season” series – they look like photographs!

We loved seeing the art installation of a living room surrounding the Christopher Columbus monument more than 70 feet in the air by artist Tatzu Nishi. Apparently, Mr. Columbus has pink print wallpaper. We like! Anyone know the pattern?
“For this project, the wallpaper is pink, and the reason I chose pink is, I thought that pink is the color that is most different from Columbus Circle.” - Tatzu Nishi, via NYTimes Home.
Yet this is not a room to consider from a design prespective, but as an art installation.
“Sometimes people who look at my living rooms say, “You have really good taste,” but it’s not really true. My concept of the art project is to make the interior exterior, and the exterior into the interior, and also make some public thing private or domestic, and the other way around.” - Tatzu Nishi, via NYTimes Home.
A great photo which shows just that…an exterior turned interior:
Open now, 25 people at a time can enter the living room and view the 1892 marble figure of the Italian explorer inside his 810 square foot Living Room. Yet art-goer be prepared, bring your sneakers for the scaffold-encased 70 foot stair climb! Talk about a New York City walk-up!
On Sunday night Team TF returned from a mid-summer hiatus to Spain. Itinerary included 24 hours in Madrid and 4 days at Cap Rocat resort on the island of Mallorca. Now back stateside (with our Spanish guitar streaming on pandora), we are totally re-energized and ready to finish out an exciting end to our summer!
Some snapshots from the trip…
Madrid, vantage point: upper level double-decker tour bus!
The Ritz, where we saw the President of the Dominican Republic in the lobby!
A visit to the amazing Prado Museum
The most delish tomatoes of all time.
Quick flight to Mallorca.
We arrived at Cap Rocat, a former military fortress turned resort on the Sea.
Pictured on the COVER of Cool Escapes for good reason.
The beach restaurant, one of two eateries at the resort.
Favorite lunch: Sautéed Squid on Tomato Tartar and Artichoke, best with a glass of local rosé.
To the beach we go!
Snorkeling in the sea.
And floating for a photo opp.
Or for more aquatics there was also the pool option…
Each room had a private palapa facing the sea…
…and each morning a basket of delicious goodies was delivered to the room for breakfast on the palapa.
We mastered the art of relaxation…
…and staying hydrated.
The TF Husbands, Dave and Ryan.
And us on our last day…relaxed and recharged. Adios España!
