Finally finished Make.Do.’s “Just 100 Beautiful Things” board today, and capped it off with this image:
It’s a painting by Thomas Saliot. It just popped up first in my Pinterest feed today, and I thought, “How fitting!” I own that painting. I tracked it down after seeing it in a magazine and found the artist, living in Morocco. I remember the day it arrived, the canvas rolled up in a tube, at my office in Chicago. When I took it to get framed, the man who helped me said, “I don’t care how much you paid for it. It was worth it.” It really was. It’s giant 4′ x 4′ and it hangs in my bedroom as the first (human) face I see every morning. That woman is having fun! It’s a great way to start the day. Happy BFP!
