Life's A Picnic

Some like to say that life’s a picnic. Picnics call to mind sunshine, blue skies, sweet tea and laughter. Even though there are the unavoidable cloudy seasons of life, why not embrace this sunshine-filled mentality? 
"Luncheon on the Grass" by Monet, 1865-66
There are times when you need a moment to escape the day to day chaos, take a walk in the park, enjoy lunch with friends or just feel the breeze blowing across your face as you take in the scenery around you.

Peace, Love and Disco

 The lights were glowing, the music pumping, the laughter flowing and glitter shimmering all around…this is how we nostalgically imagine the disco era of New York City. A city of beautiful people with smiles, love and a carefree attitude.  In reality, crime rates were high and the city was a dangerous place to be. But from that reality, the beauty of art and fashion flourished in ways we continue to see over 40 years later. 

Cleopatra Mystique

Mystery shrouds the truth of what really took place in the life of Cleopatra. Rumored to be a beauty with the power to seduce great men of power, she was known to have secured strategic liaisons with the likes of Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. For centuries, artists and writers have tried to capture her on the canvas and the page, but she remains forever on the periphery of what we know to be true.
