Claude Monet

Water Lilies, 1906  Art Institute of Chicago
Just returned from Paris.  Truly Wonderful.

Visited Claude Monet's house and garden in Giverny.  I've not seen anything quite like the water lily pond.  Very beautiful lilies in pinks, whites and yellows.

"Apart from painting and gardening, I'm good for nothing!" Claude Monet

Keith Richards

Keith Richards 1972
I'm not really a fan of the Rolling Stones, though I do have a couple of their very well used vintage records.

By all accounts though 'Life: Keith Richards' is a very good read. 

'Addictive reading' (VOGUE)

Buy through through my British amazon.co.uk store, or American amazon.com store.

Have a great weekend and happy summer reading.

Amy Winehouse



We heard about the tragic death of Amy Winehouse at night on a coach in Sicily, which was quite surreal.

Did you know that her inspiration was girl groups from the 60s? Hence the beehive hairdo.

Such talent, but a victim of the modern world.

RIP Amy.
