Happy New Year!

It's January 6, epiphany, so in honor of the day, Warren Prosperi's Museum Epiphany III from the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. I love this painting for the fact that it could be me. My sister and I were raised by parents that took us to museums and concerts at a very young age. What some people might even think of as too young! But it's never to early to introduce children to beauty. My epiphany, the very reason I went on to study the decorative arts, came during a family visit to Neuschwanstein. Walking through the 19th-century German castle at precisely the time I was being read fairytales at bedtime had an absolute and profound affect on me -- it was my first sense of time and history -- and I'm forever grateful to my mother and father. We just never know when inspiration will strike. May 2014 be a year of epiphanies and blessings for all of you. xx
