MY WORK ON 1ST DIBS!

1st Dibs is the premier online source for high-end antiques, vintage pieces and home furnishings, THE source all of the top designers turn to when looking for unique pieces.

My friend, Courtney Barnes in the 1st Dibs feature "The Blogosphere" that also includes a photo of one of the commissions I've done for her.

The gracious and lovely Courtney Barnes, creator and editor of StyleCourt (photo by Steve Pomberg via 1st Dibs)

The latest painting writer Courtney Barnes commissioned from me of her favorite things on her bedside table.

A special congratulations to my friend, Courtney, of StyleCourt,who was profiled on "The Blogosphere" on 1st Dibs. It was great to learn more about her and see a photo of her beautiful home. I also was thrilled and honored to see that she had included my painting of her bedside table and it ended up beside her photo on 1st Dibs homepage and was also shown in the feature on her (click on page 3 at the bottom of page).

Courtney is one of those people who is extremely talented, a veritable encyclopedia of art and design knowledge, yet she's as modest, kind and unaffected as can be! She was one of the first people to commission my work and has been a great support and encouragement to me in my career. What I am trying to say, is that Courtney is the GREATEST and I am so happy to see her getting even just a smidgen of the credit she deserves (and thanks so much for letting me ride your coattails onto 1st Dibs!!!)

P.S. This painting is also available now as a print - contact me for details!

P.S. I just wanted to let you know I received a lovely email from artist Harrison Howard a week or so ago. I had lived in La Jolla during design school, so we had a very nice exchange. Thankyou for the intro! :)
