My mom is an interior designer and she was in *heaven* viewing many pieces of furniture design she had studied. A fan of art deco and art nouveau, I too was pleased.
And then... there was Vance Kirkland. Honestly, I didn't really know anything about him or his art until our visit. Apparently, he is one of Colorado's most distinguished artists whose work ranged from Designed Realism to Surrealism to Abstract Expressionism. I fell in love with his technique of creating oil & water mixtures to paint with. It is a technique I really want to find more information about since I've never really heard of it before. Do you know anything about floating oil paint on water?
Tomorrow I will share more about Vance Kirkland. Really he is FASCINATING and you will be in awe of how he painted when I show you photos of his studio.
For now, I will just share photos from the Modernist Decorative Art and Colorado Modernism Collection that I snapped to make fun post cards when writing my mom!
