When I met my friend Meritxell I warmed up to her straight away. She’s the sort of person that people gravitate towards because she has this beautiful inner glow. It’s like she has a warm fire over in her belly that you just want to be next to. People love her. I love her!
I was her friend long before she ever bought a painting from me. Actually I have to admit that the first time she ever bought a painting from me I was embarrassed. I had never had a friend buy a painting from me before, and I didn’t know how to react. But she seemed so happy to be taking them home that I got over it. Since then, she has collected many of my works. Her house is like my personal gallery and I light up every time I see how well she cares for them. They have a happy home.
I wanted to share with you some pictures of her house. She has a way of decorating that is so precise and thoughtful… She thinks everything through, and it gives meaning to every corner of her house. I’m different. I’m utilitarian by nature so most things in my house are things that are useful, or things I can create with. There are machines, supplies, boxes, instruments, to-do lists, and they’re all piled up or scattered carelessly in corners. I would like to put more love into creating the space but it’s not very high on my priority list. Maybe that’s why I love to visit homes that are loved.
Here are some photos from a house that is truly loved…
