In the September/October issue of R•Home Magazine, I wrote the cover story on artist Lee Baskerville, and his historic New England Saltbox in Midlothian. Here’s a little excerpt from the story:
Artist Lee Baskerville approaches interior design much like he composes a painting – with deliberation and openness. “There are rules that you can follow,” he says, “but there also is an emotional response to shapes and forms.”
Baskerville’s style can’t be confined by era or place. And, in his life, Baskerville himself isn’t bound by definition either. While he is best known as a portrait painter, you can find his landscape paintings on display at The Country Club of Virginia, The Commonwealth Club and Chesapeake Capital Corporation. His historic murals line the walls at The Omni Homestead in Hot Springs and his equestrian scenes at Salamander Resort & Spa in Middleburg. He also is an art historian, a furniture maker, a hunter and a safari guide in Africa.
To read the full story, you’ll have to get in your car and drive to Barnes & Noble at Libbie Place and buy a copy. Support print media. Print is not dead! xo, marissa
P.S. Now that the issue is off newsstands, the story is posted here.
