Christmas Weekend 2017: My Favorite Christmas Music

Happy Holidays from all of us in the studio! (Teale, Maude and Pearl)

Christmas weekend 2017: the Christmas music is on, the trees are trimmed, the gifts are wrapped and my grapefruit mimosa is blissfully within arm’s reach. Packages, paintings and purchases are all where they belong. The garden is cleaned up because winter in Los Angeles looks somewhat like fall to the rest of the country. Despite the break neck pace of the last year, I’m ahead of where I expected to be this season and I am delighted to have some time to write to you.

The Problem with Some Christmas Music

A couple days ago, as I sat in a salon getting all of my hairs did, I realized I was being held captive as I heard the piped-in Christmas music. Don’t get me wrong, I like some Christmas music. I even enjoyed it as I sat there, getting into the spirit of being pampered.

Introducing the Pearl and Maude Design Studio

Hi. My name is Teale, and I am the Pearl and Maude Design Studio. I am a Los Angeles based fine art painter and installation artist who is obsessed with classical design, historic architecture, color and interior design. I’ve been showing and selling my work in museums and galleries for about six years. I love the art world and the seriousness with which we approach our processes and concepts. I am also a firm believer that joy brings joy and the weight of the world is more easily carried by a focus on beauty, wisdom and generosity.
