I had a great day yesterday. I decided I definitely want a Slim Aarons for CCC. Slim Aarons was an American photographer known for photographing socialites, jet-setters, and celebrities. Interestingly, he never used a stylist or makeup artist. His most famous quote is that he liked "photographing attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places."
My daughter Kate who has a great eye helped me choose one for my home - he had quite a large body of work to say the least. I ordered a 40 inch by 60 inch without frame so it should make quite a statement and also decided on the framing. The one above is not the one I chose, but look how great it looks with ginger jars, Greek key, seashells, and orchids. I will share more details down the road.
Today I am finalizing all the art placement for my day Thursday. So it's art week at CCC pretty much.
