The high road is hard to find. |

"These are the intensities that one cannot live with, that he has to outgrow if he wants to survive. But who can help grieving for them? If the blood vessels could hold them, how much better to keep those early loves with us?" - Tennessee Williams #modernmythology #rebeccarebouche #studiocapsule
Very pleased to announce my New York debut with Rebecca Hossack Gallery. The opening will be held at their Soho space on September 17. To inquire about new available paintings, please call Allison or Kinsey at the gallery. To view the catalog online, click here. If you’re in NYC I hope you’ll join me on opening night. I’m looking forward to getting out of the rural studio and into the big city. X, Rebecca
"It is only in his work that an artist can find reality and satisfaction, for the actual world is less intense than the world of his invention and consequently his life, without recourse to violent disorder, does not seem very substantial. The right condition for him is that in which his work in not only convenient but unavoidable."
- Tennessee Williams
Mr.Tumnus went to a new home today. Everybody say “bye T!” Thanks for all the insta-moments you gave us. He has new parents now- real bunny lovers, who lost their last rabbit to a bunny health problem. He’s like the “giving bunny”. He helped me through a dark time in my life and I’m so much happier now. It’s time for him to help others. If he lives 10 yrs I hope he helps lots of people in that time. As much as I love bunnies, I’m a humanitarian after all. ✌️💗🐰 #mrtumnussaveslives
Came across this image while looking at Blossfeldt’s Botanical portraits, and it sent me down another path. Sometimes I love that about the internet. (source unknown)
It’s a silky night in the woods with fireflies and cricket symphonies and the baritone croaking of bull frogs. Memories flap at the inside of my skull like moths on bulbs…
This reading made me cry. I suppose I heard it at the exact moment of maximum impact in my life. Perhaps you will too.
Hello from the woods. Yes I’m still alive. Still sailing through a darkness, still painting my own light.
My assistant (and completely badass photographer in her own right) Hannah McSwain, is the featured person on local blog I Heart Nola today. And one of her photos of pianist Margeret Hebert from our salon series at the The Beauty Shop is in the line-up of chosen instagram pics. To see more from the salon series, search hashtag “theimprobablecafe” on instagram. Or check out The Beauty Shop facebook page. Keep it real Han. xoxo
