File this under: I always want what I can’t afford. These days I’m all about home decor that is truly unique and noteworthy. Which means enough with the framed posters on my walls – I want art! Painted! On canvas!
And of course that is crazy expensive. So I spend afternoons wishing and hoping and eBay dream shopping for the kind of art I’d love to someday be able to just buy on a whim. I am not by any means an art connisseur, but I know what I like. I have a thing for Caribbean art, and I love images of women. Needless to say, Boscoe Holder has been on my list of favorite artists for quite some time now.
A catalog of his art is available for sale at The Gallery at Lancaster Great House in Barbados. Most have already been sold, but it appears that one of my favorites, Flowers In Her Hair, is available for $4,000. Sigh. I need a sponsor.
For now I’m gonna have to settle for a print of his most famous painting, The Head Tie – available online for $39.99, or on canvas for $189.99.
Boscoe Holder was also an entertainer, a dancer, and a choreographer of note. Here’s some rare video of him performing on television.
And of course his brother Geoffrey is still a working actor and voiceover superstar.
