Favorite Art

I have so many pieces that I love that it was hard to decide which are my favorites. And I’m always adding new.

My favorite word and one of my favorite artists.

Love

butterfield-horse

Horse

by Deborah Butterfield

An absolute masterpiece. It’s bronze and looks like driftwood until you touch it.

dine-heart

Heart

by Jim Dine

I’ve always loved his work.

kiss

The Kiss

by Silvia Poloto

As I’ve mentioned, I love paintings with words on them, and I love what this painting says. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. Silvia Poloto is a Brazilian artist, and she was one of the first artists I represented in my gallery.

diebenkorns

High Green I and Blue

by Richard Diebenkorn

I love these 2 Diebenkorn prints. The color is gorgeous, and I can look at them for hours.

typewriter

Typewriter

by Sam Messer

I saw a photograph of one of Sam Messer’s paintings in a religious magazine, and hunted down his work. I was so excited when I saw it, because Sam paints Olympia typewriters, and that’s what I write my books on, so I had to have one of his paintings. And they are so happy and fun. The texture and surface of the paint is amazing. Sam teaches fine arts at Yale. I had his work in an art show I did after the gallery closed, but didn’t represent his work. I love owning this piece.

Converse High Tops

by Gordon Smedt

Gordon does wonderful paintings of shoes (I have a great one of women’s shoes too!), vintage clothing and all kinds of objects. These high tops are a big hit and hang in the room of one of my sons. Another of my sons has a painting of a pair in red.
