1) fashion at age 21
2) decorating at 26
3) mother at 45
4) retirement at 55
And what a great life it will be! I should really go see a fortune teller just to make sure. I wonder what Miss Cleo's up to these days ;).
Recently in New York Mag a man by the name of Rick Finkelstein and his Soho design studio was featured in their space of the week. First public defender then NYU Law professor, now turned artist: sketcher, painter, photographer and diorama extraordinaire. Here's his space. Doesn't it make you just want to dive in and go to town?!
He creates dioramas out of bell jars and even Elizabethan-style cabinets. How insanely cool are these?! You know how much I'm a sucker for curio cabinets!!
Here's one the the bell jars he's done of a baseball player, the before and after...
Here's a diorama box he's made out of a desk or dresser drawer. It's of three cyclists but I know it totally reminds you of E.T. which James and I just happened to catch on TV the other day. It's so funny trying to watch the little alien now and keep a straight face. And then there's little Drewe- so darn cute! Definitely worth a re-watch at this age!
Last but not least, here's my fave...one of his cabinets of curriosities. Made out of a vintage dresser from a flea market, I love that the front door has portholes in which you see the little scenes he's assembled and back-lit inside.
He also does doll houses! Check out the entire slideshow here. I'm sure I could really learn a thing or two about transitioning from Rick!
