Every decision behind the selected paintings for their new
home had a story, a raison d’être.  We have all experienced
poignant moments and own visual memories and
impressions that have become part of our very identity,
our imprint and stories we tell ourselves, tales that define
who we are. One of Joel’s memories was of playing on a
red fire escape when he was a child of twelve or so; when
he saw New York 1, an acrylic painting on canvas by Anna
Narday, not only was he transported back to his childhood
experience, but he also clearly understood the mystery
that captivated his imagination. The skewed perspective,
as if looking up through time, became for him the necessary
connection to a treasured past experience. New York 1 hangs
on a wall between two windows that overlook a fire escape.
Rear Window, an acrylic and mixed media painting on canvas
by Melanie Wübbelmann, conjures visions of Grace Kelly
elegance, a moment’s reflection. It is beautiful, serene and
simply ideal for a bedroom space; the painting is perfectly
positioned there between two windows.
Gossip, an oil on canvas painting by FrédériqueK was our
vision for the main wall which delineates the dining area
