Artist in Residence

There's something so remarkable about an atelier.



And an interesting face.

Oh me too - so inspiring. In the old days, I had many SoHo friends with fabulous working lofts - I always wanted to paint or draw after visiting them.

You wrote this post just for me, right? Because I could hang out in these dreamy images all day.

I call my office my atelier. And why not? "Office" sounds so....so...provincial.

Is your hotmail email acct still active?

I'd love to catch up.

Oh and may I place you on me blogroll?

Oooo I'm drawn to the paint pallet. I'd like to hang that up on my wall as is!

Morning Queen Q,

Your colorful Soho past sounds So-ho exciting ;)
I'm sure you have fond memories.
Perhaps you should take up the paintbrush.
Cheers, Alcira

Clearly, Erin, this was an ode to you ;)

What would we do without the Europeans and their lives of substance and character and bona fide facial lines?
Make sure you follow the link to FVF to see more loveliness.
Cheers, Alcira

Howdy Laurita,

Ha! That's a bit like me calling our pad "Villa Nero" -- thank God for southern delusions of grandeur (clutches pearls) -- they help keep us, er, questionably sane.
I'd love to catch up -- my email's still alciramolina@hotmail.com.
And heckya, slap me up on ye ole blogroll -- your mug is already on mine ;P
Chau, Alcira

Hi there Naomi,

One of the cool design destinations here in Houston, Found for the Home (also on 1stdibs) ran a series of painters' palettes as wall art awhile back. I found them rather fascinating. Maybe you should try your hand at some DIY ;)

Mumsy is now 80...octogenerians only clutch their Mikimotos in shocked dismay when their 51 year old daughters give them cause.

That said, my mother's hands and pearls have merged. It can't be easy eating with three fingers and an opera strand.

So, other than that, Mrs. Onassis, how many progeny are we sporting these days? Does the pharoah have sibs? I have been woefully out of touch and embarassed that I don't know the answer to any of my queries. And what of the spouse? Still practicing here?

My best to your mater.

Will email soon.

Cheers L,

"It can't be easy eating with three fingers and an opera strand." -- would someone please stitch that on a satin throw pillow?!! True to form, yur killin' me as in days of old. Glad to know the venerable southern belle that bore you is still arching eyebrows in shock and awe ;)

All is well here. Pharoah the father continues to administer narcotics to all and sundry and the progeny remains sibling-less, a shortcoming we're working on rectifying in the new year.

Mom's chugging along too, sends her regards. Now has an iPhone and a Twitter account, if you can believe it.

Hope things are well, chat soon, Alcira

Yes, yes Naomi, the pallette itself is a thing to behold. I would gladly let it grace my walls as is. Just lovely.

Alcira Molina-Ali said...

Perhaps NKP, you could add painting to the photography plans ;)
Have a warm and woolly weekend, Alcira

Morning Jessica -- so great to have you here at Ground Nero ;)

It is a soulful space indeed and the paintings are glorious.
Cheers and pop back in soon, Alcira
