the artist with cat

still life with box


still life in black and white

a little bouillabaise is what esme considers a slimming dinner these days.   and why was a slimming dinner in order??  well, seems we have spent about 10 days celebrating mr. noir’s birthday with excess, culminating in a wonderful dinner at the house of some friends, both of whom are artists.  that would be persephone and her husband, mr. w.  we first met them at a gallery in carmel, where we began collecting mr. w’s work.  just look at the paintings hanging in their living room—-aren’t they to die for???  the angular but soft shapes and colors make esme swoon. 

and persephone always manages a simple but stylish look;  in this case, figure-hugging bell-bottoms and a black turtelneck—very linda ronstadt!  to top it off, these people are cat-lovers, and have rescued five of the most gorgeous cats you’ve ever seen.  somehow the cats managed to have coats in matching variants of cream and orange.  they are soft and drapey, and a couple even let esme try them on (a cat makes a wonderful shrug)!  hunter had quite the sniffing-fest when i came home.

feeling podley before the holidays,
