Furniture is art too. This chair was extraordinary. Something so common in our lives, a chair, is taken to another level because of the design. I really wanted to sit in this chair, but my husband advised against it.
This is dog crate is over 2,000 years old and from around China. Now I know why I like Chinese people so much: clearly they understood that dogs are sacred. I might need to get a more magnificent crate for my dogs.
Gustav Klimt's (1862-1918) Frauenbildnis (Portrait of a Woman) is an unfinished large scale work. It is thought to be his third work portraying Maria Munk who had shot herself in 1911 at the age of 24, in despair over a lover. Klimt died before he had the chance to finish this masterpiece. My husband and I sat on the bench in front of this painting and took it all in for quiet some time. This work spoke to me deeply. I studied every inch of this painting, and then in my mind I finished this work. It is beautiful. This work reminds me that we really have to stay on top of life to ensure there are no "unfinished canvasses" left behind.
