Extreme minimalism,

glossy reflective floors,

and art, GLORIOUS art

abound

in the Soho loft

(fabulously photographed by VERNE)

Mr. Katz is now 83.

He and his wife

have lived here

more than 25 years.

 

Think the couple

would let me rollerskate

through their artsy loft?

 

Hmmm. Maybe if I brought

my special gooey homemade

cinnamon bread.

Such a treat

to peek in

an artist’s

workspace.

 

This artist says

he thinks for a long time

and then

paints as fast as he can.

 

Reminds me of artist

Maira Kalman

saying she tries not to

“get it right” but

only to get it how she sees it.

So have you re-decorated

and re-furnished

this loft to your liking

in your mind?

 

What does it look like?

 

Peace to you right where you are.

    Hey you,

    I'm thinking just sliding around on my bum would be fab on those floors. I just know my children would want to skid and slide!! But roller-skating? Yeah! I'll go with you!! You bring the cinnamon bread – that sounds amazing. Please could I have a piece on the way?!

    I LOVE the art in the post above, by the way. It's increible. I just wanted to stare and stare.
