In one of my Jackie Kennedy obsessive periods (there have been many in my life), I saw a watercolor picture of Jackie and her sister Lee that was so beautiful. I did some investigating and found out that the artist that captured the two so amazingly was named Jacqueline Duheme. It wasn't a surprise that her work attracted me, she was a French student of Matisse, whose work I also love. Duheme traveled with Jackie overseas and captured many of the highlights in whimsical watercolors that are featured in the book Mrs. Kennedy Goes Abroad. I quickly purchased two of these books, one to keep and one to take apart and start framing the pages. Well, that was about 12 years ago and I keep looking at the second book, trying to figure out if I have enough wall space to fit 9-10 framed prints. I also can't decide how to frame them. this is a typical situation I get myself in.
On the camel, and the real life picture to match
Dining with The Queen
This is my favorite one...
I am going to make a decision soon and then add the framed prints to my huge, growing pile of framed art that needs to be hung. Once again, I am in need of a handy man, my Dad or a boyfriend to help me. I would like the boyfriend, but would take anyone with a drill that will trade a couple of hours of work for a pizza, beer and my sense of humor. Will let you know how this all goes down.
By the way, this book is still available here
