almost an artist

my friend russell, aka leo, is quite the talented creative. the husband coined the phrase "almost an artist" about leo, after he was being too modest (artists!) & saying he couldn't call himself an artist. but the phrase has stuck & that's the name of his new website. we caught up with leo & some other lovely creatives for quite the afternoon feast yesterday at his beautiful home in elwood.. you know, one of those homes that are just warm & welcoming with the perfect balance of design & bohemia.. eames chairs, kitchen bench overflowing with fresh coffee & rice pudding tarts topped with slow baked quinces made from secret family recipes, open fire crackling, coffee table laden with amazing food, lamps casting a warm glow in just the right place oh-so-casually placed on the floor in a room corner, low mid century sofa & floor cushions seating good peops and of course artwork & books everywhere. especially artwork. all by my good friend russell. amazing.
