Meet-up with Sketch42

The first blog I ever read was Sketch42I fell in love with Nicole Cohen's art and blog right away.  She is a writer with a very strong voice and a very clear aesthetic, which is rare in today's blogging world where everyone's images and ideas seem to be similar.  Sketch42 stands out in the quality of its posts, the information she shares and her point of view.  And her art....well its just what I love- colorful and dynamic.

While I was in NY recently, I took advantage to visit with Nicole in her beautiful Upper East side apartment (see photos of her apartment here).  I took a couple of shots as I couldn't resist.
This is one of two new large scale paintings she made which recently added in her living room.  They are even more beautiful in person.
Of course, this round painting definitely makes a statement.  Cool right?  But you know what is even cooler?
the round painting with baby JoJo below it (who is the sweetest baby with the most stunning blue eyes you have ever seen!)
Here is a painting ready to be shipped to its new owner (who obviously has very good taste).
And here is a little shot of my husband's library with one of Nicole's paintings that I bought a while ago.  So you see, I'm speaking from the heart when I tell you I love her work.

It was so nice to visit with such a fun friend in such a beautiful apartment.  Thanks Nicole for your time!  You can visit her blog here and her gallery shop here.
