Last April my best friend and I went on a weekend getaway to San Diego to celebrate her birthday. We stayed at the fabulous US Grant. I suggest you check the place out because it is gorgeous! It is a historic hotel with just the perfect amount of modern touches. If I could condense the hotel into a home, that would be my dream home *sigh*. One of the unique features I loved was the headboard in our room. It was unique, not one of those mass-produced paintings you typically see in hotels. The headboard was a giant canvas with an image of people on it. I could tell it was one of a kind since the adjacent bed had a similar image and after close inspection, I was right! Right then and there, I immediately took a snapshot of it and mentally logged it in my brain as something to copy in my future home. I thought, that seems easy, I could paint that. After that weekend I sort of forgot about it (after all I”m not a home owner yet) until last night when I was watching the Real Housewives of Miami. The episode showcased an artist dripping black paint onto a canvas in one continuous motion to create an image of several people. I immediately did an O.M.G! This was the same artist whose headboard painting I feel in love with. I later googled the artist and found out his name is Yves Clement, a brilliant french artist know for this one-of-a-kind style. This is exciting for me because I have a genuine love for the arts and it’s not often you see an avant-garde approach to painting. So with that said, I’ve got to get my hands on one of those headboards!
