In The Studio with Clay- What’s on the Easel?

In the studio with Clay 9-18-18 (2)Pictured here are some recently finished , and some just started, canvases of my new series Ancient Voices.

All of the paintings are acrylic on gallery wrapped canvases and some contain paper collage materials. Colors are mostly brown, black , white and cream to lend an organic, earthiness. The addition of metallic gold that shimmers in the light gives a sense of mystery and  magic!

These works are created intuitively from memories and experiences past and present.

Stay tuned for more!  Clay

Trend Alert! 2018- 2019 Globally Inspired Living!

Globally inspired living with an eclectic mix is experiencing a moment in our interior design world but has always been a favorite of mine!

This vignette shot of a living room features a global- eclectic mix with layered area rugs and a Classically inspired chair accented with a bone inlay Moroccan side table.CSL Global eclectic vignette LR

The global mix is typically done with lots of bright colors but I think the neutral approach I took here, with lots of textures, is sophisticated and soothing.

I hope you will be inspired to mix it up and add some globally inspired elements to your  home!

Till next time,

Clay’s Favorite Finds! Coastal Inspirations for Summer 2017

Coastel Inspirations!

Summer is on the way! What better time to visit the coast and glean some inspiration for your home’s interiors?

My ongoing love affair with islands and beaches inspired a series of paintings  that I have been working on for the past several months . I used one of the latest paintings, River Mist, as the starting point for my Coastal Inspirations design board, above.

I draw on my travel experiences to islands from Maine, Bermuda, Florida and on down through the Caribbean to inspire my art and interior design. The sand, sea, sky and cultures of each locale  have so many nuances of color, texture , vibrations and feelings! Think of the glorious pink sand beaches in Bermuda or the festive and colorful costumes of Roatan, Honduras, for example! The possibilities to incorporate all of that visual smorgasbord of beauty, nature and customs into art and design is boundless!

I hope you will share my Summer Inspirations Board with family and friends that might enjoy some Coastal Inspiration!
