The artist’s rainbow house in California brings her excitement but her neighbor is charming



The artist's rainbow house in California brings her excitement but her neighbor is charming

Not all rainbows and sunshine for Jane Gottlieb.

Tired of the shanty houses lined up around Santa Barbara, California, a high-class neighborhood, the 70-year-old artist decided to paint his colorful rainbow. The aim is to brighten people’s day, according to the Daily Mail, but unfortunately, not all residents support his vision.

“I don’t understand this obsession with beige and brown. I just don’t know why it’s a color combination that is so popular in the world,” Gottlieb said. “I am interested in color. When I see something bright or colorful, I want it.”

So Gottlieb spent two months – and spent $ 5,000 – to make his house painted in nine bright colors. Everything from the roof and chimney to the terrace and stairs are covered with shades of blue, green, yellow, red, purple and pink.

After finishing, Gottlieb felt he had transformed his four-room house into a “work of art.”

Since then it has been dubbed the “rainbow house,” “the house of color,” and “the house of Easter.” Many people walk past it just to see the bright spectacle, Gottlieb reported.

Jane Gottlieb and her husband David Obst moved into the house in 1997, when it was cream and brown.

“When people come who have never visited before, they immediately smile. They are immediately happy because they have never seen anything like this. They said, ‘Oh my God, this is amazing,’ “said Gottlieb. “I hear the same thing all the time: ‘You can’t be happy in this house.'”

Some of Gottlieb’s neighbors, on the other hand, were not happy.

“Nobody in this neighborhood really likes it because they all have these beige Mediterranean houses,” he explained, “and I have this bright and fantastic work of art.”

But it has not been deterred famous artist – whose prints have been exhibited all over the world – from spending cash to keeping the oasis alive. “The outside must be repainted every few years because it fades,” he said. “Sometimes, a year goes by, and I don’t paint, but it costs about $ 5,000 a year.”

There’s more: The interior is just as interesting. The living room is furnished with a purple sofa and a green fireplace, while the Gottlieb studio features retro blue and checkered patterns throughout the room. The kitchen, bathroom and shelves on the shelves displaying Murano glass and other antiques add to the riot of color, according to a house tour published in Curbed.

“I don’t even know how many colors there are in it,” he said. “My favorite room is my studio or purple living room because it faces the pool and the sea. We have decorated it with colorful Italian furniture and my artwork. “

Of course, the house didn’t look like this when Gottlieb, her husband, David Obst, and their dogs moved 23 years ago. It was (surprise, surprise) cream and chocolate. After renovation, Gottlieb decided to start adding color – and never stopped, inside and out.

“It’s a thing that never ends,” he said. “This is my 3-D artwork filled with my artwork, and I am very proud of it. I like to live here. “

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
