âIâm a big impulse buyer. I bought this without knowing the measurements. If it had been a quarter of an inch larger it wouldnât have fit in my old apartment. To get it in this space, it had to be disassembled and rebuilt!â
âI purchased this one with the other one. I love the texture and depth that drew me to it. The grid in the background, the layering, the techniques on one another fascinate me.â

âHeâs so talented. He paints, he sculpts, heâs a photographer. These are nickel. They shoot so much light back into the guest room.â
âItâs a watercolor in sepia. Iâm a big Hockney fan and it reminded me of Hockney. Itâs a man standing in a pool. I love the angle.â
