    Hey Cedar, do you know anything more / can you say something more about that Tim Davis photo?

    I just thought well. there is so much art in rooms most people never see. Is the light coming down upon or rising up from the white rose? I like the idea of an invitation to show two pieces you live with. Sometimes I feel like I’m living in the Alicia McCarthy painting over our blue couch. Its a nice place to live sometimes. The idea is based on a show Micah Ballard put on as his short lived Lew gallery. It was his office at New College. He put on a show called Some Of The Worlds Diamonds: Pieces From Living Rooms. Some of the artists that contributed well loved works were Sara Cain, Will Yackulic, Larry Rinder, Bill Berkson too. So I thought I would ask him again.

  4. Suzanne Says:

    I love this, would love to see more of these—can we see two from your house too?

    Oh, that light on the photograph is in the original photo? Funny trick of how hard it is to see this and read it for what it is on the internet, I unfairly thought it was a problem of taking the snapshot from in front of the couch or what have you—ie, where that ‘wrong’ light is coming from is hard to read

  7. Cedar Sigo Says:

    Sure, I remember that Stephanie had said she was interested in all of the bloggers posting works we lived with. I have always had a weakness for smaller works, one of a kind books, etc. the sorts of gifts that are so often bestowed upon poets. It makes the living room feel like a temple. especially when its very clean and the light is pouring in
