The Mantlepiece (la Chiminee) Edouard Voillard 1906 Wild flowers in improvised vases, objects d' art, paintings propped up by any means ... This looks a lot like my mantelpiece -- or at least my kitchen windowsill. What's up there just now? A bar of grapefruit soap in a seashell, a tea light in an improvised candleholder (also a sea shell), crimson shamrocks in a lacey white pot, dishsoap in a glass bottle meant for olive oil, a jar of lentils that I am sprouting. This is the kind of painting that I like best, because it invites me to slow down and see the ordinary moments and memories of my own life. What is on the mantle? Themes from mine: the practical, paired with the beautiful. Therefore, beauty must be important to me. I'm glad to see that I've found ways to include it in the most common tasks.
