Someone is putting their faith in me and employing me as their store manager. Last week I was hired to be the manager of a new store that is opening up in historic downtown Littleton (coincidence that I blogged about that street 3 postings ago...I think not).
The store opens in October and it is a little photography/memories related gift shop. It will be called Chiaroscuro.
Brace yourself for some possible UI (unwanted info)
Chiaroscuro (Italian for light-dark) is a term in art for a contrast between light and dark.
In an effort to make my art history teacher proud...here are 2 of my favorite examples of chiaroscuro shading:
Caravaggio "The Calling of St. Matthew"
Bouguereau "The Knitting Woman"
So right now I have been shopping and buying (a lot) to get the store stocked and ready to be cute. It is going to be really eclectic and funky. Cement floors, exposed piping in the ceiling, silver tin tiles for the walls. I will post pictures sometime in October when the store is up and running.
In other news...my best friend from elementary school is getting married this weekend! We have stayed friends for 22 years (since we were 2) and now I get to attend her wedding this Friday. So fun!
