And we're back. I'm returning to Minneapolis today after a fabulous hiatus in the sweet, sweaty (and comfortably flabby) arms of the South. And even though Stacy Durand is a New England girl, her paintings have a nostalgic Anywhere, USA feel that makes them apropos as I bid adieu to Alabama for a couple of months. I am completely in love with her use of color. I'd love to hang a few of these in some rustic wood frames against some white bead board.
