I am fascinated by the life and art of  Florine Stettheimer, (August 29, 1871 – May 11, 1944). Florine was an American painter, designer, and poet.  I encourage you to read this article to learn more about her. She was not a regular woman of her time.

My attitude is one of love

is all adoration

for all the fringes

all the color

all tinsel creation

I like slippers gold

I like oysters cold

and my garden of mixed flowers

and the sky full of towers

and traffic in the streets

and Maillard’s sweets

and Bendel’s clothes

and Nat Lewis hose

and Tappé’s window arrays

and crystal fixtures

and my pictures

and Walt Disney cartoons.

and colored balloons.
