Both of these rugs from Madeline Weinrib remind so much of the tiling in Mancini’s Italian Palazzo. I so want one and then I can get a red velvet chair. But wait…I’m suppose to be painting. I can’t buy anything till I made at least 5 paintings. Why is it that the things you really love to do can be so hard to start? Alright, no excuses. I have to leave the computer now and start my life.
