ARTmonday: Connecticut Collection

I spent a few days in Connecticut before fleeing the Northeast for sunny South Florida. As I may have mentioned before, my in-laws have all sorts of wonderful artwork. I took a bunch of Instagram shots of their collection. Many Cape Cod/NYC artists, who are also longtime family friends, are represented, including Budd Hopkins, Paul Resika, Selina Treif, Joan Miller, and Sidney Simon, as well as my husband’s great, great grandmother, Ina Whitney, whom I didn’t even realize was a painter.  I’ve also included a piece by James Rosenberg, which was their very first piece of art, given to them by my husband’s grandparents, and painted the year they were married. Here are the highlights of the artwork that is hanging in their home at the moment.
