The House of Two Urns

House of Two Urns

In Chicago we stayed at a B&B called the House of Two Urns. I sketched this view of the sitting room during the inevitable fit of insomnia.

The B&B was filled with art, but not kitschy Victorian art. The owners, Kapra Fleming and Miguel Lopez Lemus, are artists, and have hung their own art throughout the B&B, plus original paintings, drawings, and photos of and by their friends and fellow artists.

This is contemporary art, and while some of it is lyrical and lovely, some of it does not evoke warm and fuzzy feelings. Some of it is quite challenging, emotionally and intellectually. But that is why I chose this B&B, and we were not disappointed.
