Although we can and would talk your ear off about all things design if prompted, and we can stumble our way through a conversation about "art," we feel that with art, like wine, it doesn't really matter what you know, it's what you like that's important. And when Ithaca, New York based painter Lynne Tatzsch's "Culmination" came in, we all coveted it immediately. An abstract flood of bright yellows, oranges and reds, it can only be described as a round fruit run amok or a microscopic look at colorful blood cells zipping all over the place. See? We know those descriptions are lame and don't even begin to do Lynne's painting justice. But the important point is that we're trying our best to explain something we really love to the lucky swapper who will equally love hanging it on their wall, be they seasoned art appreciating sophisticates or average joes like us.
