This post doesn’t need any explanation other than I can’t afford the art I like (recently saw this exhibition in Hong Kong and found the pen drawings weird and wacky and oh so good, but $$$) and so, as I’ve said before, I’m always on the lookout for unique ways to add colour to the house without the pricetag. Have loved National Geographic since I was a kid and these days try to buy it regularly (always helps to have something to talk about other than shoes and handbags…), the photographic essays always amaze me and never fail to make me want to travel the world. I was particularly taken by a story in this month’s issue about India’s painted elephants and knew they were better kept on a wall rather than between the pages. Aren’t they beautiful?
