It used to hang in my grandparents' house in the Bronx, and it's why I chose the color of this room (the light's weird - the top of the image is "truer"). My grandfather was an accountant, and some of his clients paid him in art when they didn't have cash, like this guy, Boris Solotareff. I did a little webbing around and learned that the Met has some of his stuff! I doubt this painting is worth much, but I have loved it since I was a kid, so it's very nice to finally have it hanging over my desk.

I have never done it before, but I'm very glad I did it now.

I learned from a friend who is an interior designer that you pick your "special piece" to be your focal point. Then design around it. And I am thanking him as I am working through the plans for my new place--which I finally close on tomorrow 😊
