After reading about The Trials of Muhammad Ali, a new documentary which examines the extraordinary life and politics of Muhammad Ali in the 1960's, I began thinking about one of the few things that I really covet. The collectors edition of GOAT: Greatest of All Time, an epic book honoring the greatest sportsman of our time, will I hope be a part of my art collection one day.
And I hope The Trials of Muhammad Ali makes it to Charleston. If not I might just have to go home to Louisville for the screening.
I missed last Monday's inspiration post as I was busy being inspired by my two beautiful children on a little mini vacation. Below is a quote by Joseph Campbell that I love. I find it to be a constant truth, but one that I consistently have to keep telling myself.
This is the beginning of inspiration Monday on my blog. It will be full of the things that most inspire me, not just the beauty that I find every day in objects or nature, but the loveliness of the human spirit.
I had intended something different for my first post, but after coming off of the most fun weekend that I've had in some time, full of dear friends, surprises, a lot of laughter and a heavy dose of dancing, I'm just going to leave you with a simple quote.
My beautiful and oh so talented daughter turns 10 today. I am always in awe of how big her heart is, not to mention her exceptional ability to pull together a fabulous ensemble. Happy Birthday Loulou!
Design Bureau is one of my favorite design magazines. They cover everything from architecture and product design to fashion and typography. Naturally, I was thrilled when they asked to feature my work. They chose to focus on my use of pattern, texture and color and asked me to pull together some selections as though I was designing a space specifically for them, and of course that's always fun!
