THANK YOU, etsy, for the introduction this afternoon to Kai Samuels-Davis, painter extraordinaire and shopkeep at Windy Lane Studio. Kai’s expressive realist-style paintings are composed of cerebral, visceral figures, landscapes and objects – “creating a mood of melancholy and solitude”. Exactly the kind of things I want hanging on my walls, enveloping my surroundings. Here are some of my favorite paintings, take a look at his website and find something you can’t live without in his shop.
She may be the one I love the most, below.
That girl. You, reminding me how I used to live recklessly – dying my hair red, staining the pillowcases. Forever a reminder of 2007.
Of course his studio is also beautifully industrious; simple and sophisticated.
