Fresh Perspective
by Hollie Davis & Andrew Richmond

Beneath the Surface Back when COVID-19 was terrible (or is that still now?) we wrote about an imaginary trip we’d get to take someday when much of this was behind us. Recently, much like a movie adaptation of a novel with some of the important bits trimmed out of it, we ... (Read More)

On the Market
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

Endless Summer
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

Beneath the Surface Or, the summer vacation that wasn’t really. Back in the spring, we both got vaccinated. There were tears. A parent or two also cried in relief. The kids acted as if it was a holiday, even though at eight and (by the time you’re reading this) 11, they ... (Read More)

Graduation Day: “The Young Collector” Becomes “Beneath the Surface”

Graduation season is upon us once again, and for the next few weeks the news will be filled with the various founts of knowledge and advice that will pour forth. We have knowledge and advice too, some of it questionable, and since we’re not likely to be asked to give ... (Read More)

New Tech for Old Stuff
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Much of the news of late in the art world has been about the sale of NFTs—or non-fungible tokens. If you are like us, you may have been struggling to understand this. (Or trying to ignore it entirely. We have gone back and forth on this a lot.) ... (Read More)

Control Issues
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Pandemic lifestyle grates on a person. Of course, at this point in winter, everything grates on a person, and as the anniversary of a year in shutdown rolls around for many of us, it grates all the more. Many aspects of this are, as the kids would often say ... (Read More)
