MCBEE’S CORAL OSTRICH FOR THE ISLAND STORE

As you all might know, Scott McBee’s animal portraits have been a smashing success and are now a major attraction at the Island Store located a stone’s throw from the Lyford Cay Club. With quite a few requests for larger scale work, McBee has just finished this glorious coral ostrich on a turquoise background. He tells us the color combination was inspired by classic warm weather jewelry, revived and made rather desirable recently by fashionable ladies traveling to places like Capri, Lyford, and Palm Beach — we particularly like Kenneth Jay Lane’s ultra chic designs (a nice example pictured here).

McBee’s paintings don’t ever remain long on the wall so do take a chance to snap one of his bold and unbelievably fresh paintings quickly. If you have another color combination or size in mind, McBee takes commissions — just imagine a pink rhino on aubergine or an amethyst sea turtle on celadon green — how marvelous.

Stopping by McBee’s studio to view his Coral Ostrich before he and his recent works head off to the Bahamas, I’m sporting a Gucci hand knit brown wool sweater, Tom Ford era Gucci ivory cashmere turtleneck sweater, Tom Ford brown and cream plaid silk pants and saddle leather loafers, vintage Rolex and my fragrance is Tom Ford London.

    Hello there Karena,

    Mr McB is really quite brilliant!

    He does indeed – not sure if all the creature portraits are on it – but will follow up on that.
