Holyoke Art.

Holyoke Home recently purchased two amazing pieces by local artists. I'm not sure how to hang one, but it makes me cry and I just know you will love it to pieces. So you'll have to wait to see that one. But the second piece doesn't require hanging; we just didn't know where to put it.

Remember the art show I went to at Open Square? Matt Johnson took down his show a few weeks ago and we were finally able to bring home Coils #2 (still need to come up with a better name for it than '#2'. Don't want folks to think we're talking about poo.)
I scratched my head like a monkey trying to figure out where to put this very (to the tenth power) heavy sculpture. I tilted my head to the side, like a dog when you say 'treat?' or 'outside?' Don't the coils kind of look like flames? Voila:
 Morgan approves. Which means everything to us.
Until we get the fireplace working, I think this is where #2 (not poo) lives.


  1. At first I was like, "Didn't you already buy this one..."

    PERFECT spot for it. Glad Morgan approves :) And I can't wait to see the other pieces!

  2. I was wondering when we were going to see what you'd done with this.

    I could not think of a more perfect spot for it. Good job!
    - agata.

  3. That looks great there. You could call it "Where there's smoke..."

  4. Yes!! It's the perfect spot! I'm with always! :-)

  5. That truly is the perfect spot. Well done. Love it.

  6. I couldn't tell how big this sculpture was until I saw it in the fireplace..perfect spot! Looks so great! I hate to burst your bubble though, Morgan doesn't look like he really cares that much..or perhaps he's so excited he's in shock.

  7. whoa! love this. you definitely found the best spot.

  8. Looks like Morgan has a curly steel tail!

    I answered your questions from my last post in today's:

  9. At least you know that Morgan could always go into business as an art critic :)

  10. Morgan approves because Morgan has fabulous taste.

    I love this piece. LOVE it. And I think you found a great spot for it!


Your comments give me a thrill. Thank you.
