Meditation 2.8.19 - A Pen and Ink Tangle

A pen and ink doodle meditation in greens and a blurb about the Art Nouveau  period
Dear Henry,

I miss the art nouveau movement, at least as much as anyone can miss a period of time they were never a part of. Specifically, it is curved lines in the architecture and the lines of architectural ornaments that I am drawn too.

While most of the cool architecture is in Europe like the entrance to the metro station at Abbesses or the doorway and windows of the Lavirotte Building, most of the famous glass work of the period (lamps, vases, stained glass) was from Louis Comfort Tiffany

While I am not going to be able to convince Fish that we need to remodel the house, I am looking at the period hair ornaments and costume jewelry as a good way to indulge in the vibe, or at least would be if I were a collector.  I do plan on taking a trip to the many area antique stores, as "antiquing" seems to be a regular pass time in this area.

Maybe, I will find a hidden Tiffany.

xoxo a.d.
