Modernist Oil Painting


SISTER MARY SCRAPHIA

Look at the color choices and design style Sister Mary Scraphia chose on this 1960's Picasso-esque rendering. I was a product of St. Martin Catholic church on Chicago's south side. Those of you that know the church can testify to its beauty. The museum quality stained glass windows, the 20 foot long solid quarter-sawn oak pews, the Nuns dressed in traditional black & white garb along with their heavily starched habits, crucifixes & hard biscuit-toed shoes. They walked the massive halls of the church with stealth-like ninja ability. Catholic school attendees, you know what I mean! ;-D I'd turn around and out of nowhere, there'd be Father John & Sister Mary Francis standing there waiting for me to giggle, run or make to much noise on the Carrara marble floors. It was difficult not to, with my black patent leather, Cuban-heeled shoes. And the sisters were always singing in Latin, painting or making pottery of some sort. As I write this post I can hear the bells ring in the tower & remember the unforgettable sweet smell of the holy water in the marble urns in the vestibule. So Sister Scrap as she's probably affectionately called behind her back, I dig your design style! Don't you?

Dimensions: 32H x 38L

FLASHBACK!

PS. In later years, the archdiocese closed & sold the magnificent St. Martin in 1990. Does anyone remember the "Golden Horseman" on the steeple of the main gable? You could see it clear from Comiskey Park at 35th & the Dan Ryan. It was rumored that a Chicago land dealer purchased it!
Father John ate Sunday dinner at our home every week! He performed the wedding ceremony of my mom & dad & all my sisters and brothers. 
Not to worry, while in undergrad at DePaul, I saw a priest in my astronomy class dressed in straight leg jeans, Chuck Taylor Converse All-stars & a priest jacket & collar. Mind you many years had passed. The prof called out my name during attendance. Rousseau? Here, I called out. During the break, I got a tap on the shoulder. I turned around and it was Father John! He asked me if I was one of the Rousseau clan from back in the day. I hugged his neck so hard, grabbed his hand and called my mom & said "guess who's in my astronomy class?" She conferenced all her sisters in & I went back in to class. That week-end who do you think was sitting at Sunday dinner with his Chuck Taylor Converse All stars & straight leg jeans?!

Red Mod Chair


COLOR is what Mid Century Modern is all about!
Did you see the Madmen episode when Don Drapers daughter, 9 year old cigarette smoking, rum-pouring on pancakes Sally ran away from her suburban digs to her dads New York city office? That lobby shot was a virtual plethora of color! Utterly amazing! Shout out to the set designer! That lobby re-creation was spot on! 
We often get caught up in the black walnuts & honey-colored Teaks of the highboys & credenzas. Not that there's anything wrong with that! ;-)
But we mustn't forget about color! So Modernist, look through your Danish credenza in your living room where you keep all your AV, & look for that Madmen DVD!

An Orange Moon Special Guest @ Antique Show 8/7/2011


Okay--everyone knows us as hard core Mid Century Modernists, but Sunday I did the show at the Rebuilding Exchange! Just felt the need to go back to my Maxwell Street roots! I totally stepped out of my "Modernist" comfort zone & sold an assortment of jewelry, dish ware, silver, artwork & home accessories! Pssst--we offer these items at AOM, but they are displayed in the BACK ROOM! The REALLY REGULAR customers know about it. I'm just saying...
Anywho, that morning the heavens opened up & it rained like hell! I politely climbed into my truck turned on the air, drank my coffee & chilled! Thank goodness Mother Nature gave us a play! An hour later the sun came out big and bold, and so did the customers!
 Below is one of my favs.

While we think of Hef as a playboy only, he was doing some amazing things for the world back in the day. Did you know that Hef once sent his Playboy bunny jet to airlift a group of orphaned babies from Vietnam during the war? He enlisted his Playboy bunnies to fly from San Francisco to New York to make sure the children arrived safely. I'm sure that was a sight to behold! Thank you Hef! & Thank you to Twentieth Century Fox, Tricia, Andrew & the UNION movers for allowing An Orange Moon to help with the set design!

HELLO WORLD! I AM HOME!


Yes I am home! I was away at the spa for two glorious weeks! I hiked on some famous trail along the river bank. Took in the scenery and learned how to breathe. Saw giant bunny rabbits & deer in the outback, and chipmunks!! They were soooo cute...I stumbled upon a great private cook-out in a cabin by a lovely rocky stream. The hill was steep! I hiked it against my better judgement. The winding path really couldn't accommodate hikers and vehicles at the same time, so in that instance, I learned patience, said "whats up" to a Forest Ranger--FYI, they still rock a complete uniform. Their doppelganger is the LAPD!!  
The first morning I was out by the pool talking to Ty, there was no Internet connection & cell phone use was prohibited indoors. He stated "wow those birds are super loud!" I replied,"I know as they squawked their loudest. We found ourselves shouting & laughing over the caw-caw-caw of winged creatures in their natural habitat. During our phone call I looked up into the early morning sun, it was at that moment I knew--
 you can take the girl out of the city...
First morning back at AOM!

But what an adventure! May I share some things I learned about myself during my Eat, Pray, Love expedition?

1. I did everything I set out to do, and more! Hiked, laid out in a hammock, actually looked up at the sky until I fell asleep. Felt good about and looked forward to napping, ate well, drank h20 like it was going out of style. This one is a biggie folks--HAD NO SUGAR FOR 2 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!! YIKES! Yeah, yeah, I'm better for it!

2. I'm totally weirded out about the amount of litter in the city of Chicago. While on an excursion into town, I noticed a McDonald's bag in the middle of the road! Someone threw a McDonald's bag out of the window. The only litter for 50 blocks around. Please people, DON'T BE A LITTER BUG! CAUSE EVERY LITTER BIT HURTS! Ok, might I add, this is my first true experience of culture shock!

3.Figured out when the schedule said outing, it meant hiking clothes, NOT PARTY CLOTHES!! 8)

4. LEARNED HOW TO DO A KILLER SOUTHERN ACCENT--YALL! Learned the difference between a "bag & a sack," a "soda & a pop," & instead of saying "hello, how are you today," just say "all-right." 

5. Mad LOVE to the "Master Modernist" Ty McDaniel for "digging back into his psychological stack," and seeing the signs of physical decompensation; and insisting I cut-out, and stay as long as I want to.

6.Thanks to the women at the spa, that helped me get my groove back! The day we snuck away from the regularly scheduled program and grooved to T.I.'s "What You Know About This," Ciara's, "OH," Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," with a little Stones thrown in for good measure, had to be one of my greatest learning experiences. It taught me to slow down a little bit "gym shoe," smell the roses, but keep it funky! 

Ok. Tons more happened, like watching "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," great film again. Experiencing foot pain like you can't imagine from excessive hiking. (I LOVED IT!)  Flying FIRST CLASS! ALL THE COCKTAILS YOU CAN DRINK FOR NADA!! FIRST ON AND FIRST OFF THE PLANE! Ok, that's superficial nonsense ;-D The best part was coming HOME! It's strange isn't it? I needed to get away, but on the flight home, my heart was beating a million miles a minute. I was going to see my husband! My city, my home, my customers...If you've never been to AOM, we sell fantastic furniture, AND we vibe hard!! Music, Tequila, MCM...but coming home...I stepped off the plane and waiting for me in arrivals was Ty. I looked deep into his eyes before we kissed. I am home...
