carries.heidi.2Meet Heidi, aka Heidi-ho, Succulent Head, Barky Head, Cutie Pie, Silly Head, etc!  Heidi is very active and besides regular meals, she loves all veggies, nuts, and plain yogurt!

This loveable pup was adopted from the Massachusetts Mini Schnauzers Rescue Center four years ago.  Heidi keeps spirits high in the floral studio by “flirting” with the bridal consults and keeping step with shop owner, Carrie Chang,  of bbrooks member Floral Lab, Boston MA, everywhere she goes.

Congratulations to Carrie on her feature in the recent Grace Ormonde  Wedding Style magazine.  Carrie will also be honored with the the Int’l Floral Art Award in Belgium’s annual floral art book in  2014/15.

I know that Heidi will be right there, sharing in the applause!

Klaus Enrique ~ The Reaping

klaus enrique. the reapingRecently at Rebecca Hossack Gallery NYC ~ Klaus Enrique: The Reaping.

A series of photographic portraits, Enrique’s creations complicate and investigate notions of the ephemeral.  Utilizing materials such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, and other organic materials, Enrique produces glorious human forms and captures them in a rare moment of ripeness, preserving the perfection that precedes inevitable decay.  Enrique breathes new life into these forms, harvesting, reaping, and reconfiguring them as beautiful, often dark portraits.
