Life has been so busy for the past few weeks that I didn't even have time to introduce you to the genius in our house.
He came home with us earlier this month and is definitely here to stay.
Actually, the big guy and I attended a fund raiser with some friends a a few weekends back and we came home with a fabulous piece of art.
We were both so thrilled with our purchase and I have been waiting for some down time so I could share it with you.
We have wanted a work by Tomas Lasansky for several years now but I never expected to come home with one that night.
LIfe is so fun that way. When you least expect it, there are those big smiles moments that memories are made of.
A photo op with the artist
We saw this work from across the room that night and we both fell in love with it.
It is such an interesting study in psychology watching people bid on something and I was really fascinated watching my guy go for this piece with such calculated determination.
Tomas Lasansky's work is highlighted by his iconic historical figures and Native Americans.
Lincoln, Einstein, Walt Whitman, Sitting Bull, Geronimo and Picasso are his most frequent subject matter.
The piece we purchased is an Einstein Intaglio.
The eyes and the detailing are magnificent.
We proudly hung him in the living room.
So now when I come down the stairs in the morning he greets me and I say, " Good morning smartie. What am I going to learn today?' and I usually wave to him again as I say goodnight and head back up the stairs. His wrinkled wise expression just makes me smile. He is like a new friend and roomie that just fits right in and he is so easy to get along with.
