Michele Lavalette

Gallery deep-clean continued today, and I landed up emptying the racks, dusting all the works, and generally spiffing up that part of the gallery. A delightful surprise awaited me, as I came across this particularly fine painting by Michele Lavalette. It’s a small gem titled “Pomme au torchon”, or Apple with kitchen cloth.

Enjoying my usual September, closed, but in daily to putter, clean and selectively rehang. I’ve just rehung the Francis Eck room, and was struck by how lovely these two, “Balade Ocean” and “Joi de Vivre” look together.

Just back from a walk and swim on Rendezvous Bay. I’ll let the pics do the talking.

It’s always a pleasure when my friend Jean-Pierre Straub, the marquetry master, comes across to Anguilla. These gems are created using inlaid wood veneers.

A big swim

In the blink of an eye, the aforementioned turtle swam all the way to Maryland, where he decided to look awesome perched above a set of double doors…

“Old Rose” by Michele Lavalette.

I was re-hanging the front room of the gallery today, and decided that these two watercolours looked quite perfect across from my desk. They’re by the extremely talented Michele Lavalette, and are done in sepia watercolour. One tube of paint, and the light and darks are created using more and less water mixture. Both “Rose Simple” and “Dahlia” are exquisite.

These four exquisite paintings by Kim Workman will be back at the always fabulous Straw Hat restaurant in the fall, but I couldn’t help to admire them again today as I picked them up to store through storm season.

Fussy clients

No matter what they saw, they just could not make up their minds. I think they were looking for something for over the sof-baaaaaaaaa.

Great together!

So pleased when I received this pic this morning. The Bresil painting and Mikerson sculpture from the gallery look like they were made for each other. Private collection, St. Maarten.
