New Products I've Found

The Stray Dog Shop says they have 'fetching home accessories ........ ' and that they do. I loved the whimsy of this pendant lamp. To find some silliness today, check them out.

Recently my family traveled to Laguna Beach and we found a new art gallery to add to our favorites: Fingerhut Gallery (they also have a location in Sausalito).

What drew us into this gallery was a seven foot tall bronze Cat In The Hat, and then we were greeted by hundreds of beautifully-framed serigraphs of Cat In The Hat art.

Green Eggs and Ham - 50th Anniversary
Hand-Pulled Serigraph on Paper
Limited Edition of 295 with 155 Collaborators’ Proofs

Said Dr. Seuss, "I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living; it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.” I so love this quote and concept! Rock on, Dr. Seuss artwork fantasyland!

With this in mind, go here to savor more time with more wonderfully Seussian characters, linger with each, recal your own connection to these lasting messages, enjoyable memories and life principles passed along through them.

But in the above very same Laguna Beach, California Fingerhut Gallery I found the following artpiece. This exquisitely-painted folded screen by Chinese artist Jiang Tiefeng is on display in the same shop where I found the comical and crazy but noteworthy Dr. Seuss art, I found artwork by Jiang Tiefeng including his painted folded screen.

I personally stopped in my tracks and snapped away with my camera: here it is:

In fact however I apologize for just being able to give you an image from my digital camera. I would much prefer to bring you the artist's own professional photographic representation, but I wasn't able to come up with it.

I love folding screens and I love this one. (Click here to see one of my previous articles about folding screens, including some in world-wide-known, historical locations.)
With permission of Ms. Marguerite Bartel of the Fingerhut Gallery of Laguna Beach, I include the folding screen here. The shop's phone number is 949-376-6410; Fingerhut publishes this product for artist Jiang Tiefeng (the screen is priced very reasonably).
