NO SHRINKING VIOLET


ENOUGH SAID.
I love this illustration of the dining room in George Washington's home, Mount Vernon, by megatalent Maira Kalman.

Great quirky illustration, love the lines that aren't quite straight and yet work perfectly. Looks so French

We need to be sitting at that table sharing all those sweets and talking paint and color with Maira.

Love it! Have you ever been to George Washington's estate in Mount Vernon, Virginia??? I'll take you if you ever visit...it's amazingly colorful, I mean shockingly colorful! I love it and have been meaning to do a post on it eventually!

Ugly American or "colorful"? You be the judge. I'm going with colorful.

It reminds me of the one drawn by Clement Hurd, read over and over to my son not so long ago.
