A little art to brighten the beginning of your week. My favorite shade of blue, one of my favoreite artists for one of my favorite designers, and a great reminder.

Hope you have a great week! See you soon, friends.
"Is this thing on?" (taps mic) Sorry for the radio silence, friends. Finding it very tricky to balance work and blog, these days. Especially in summer, when I am out and about enjoying lots of time off with my gals. I have been finding so many things I have wanted to share with you so, here we go. A little art to brighten your week. Hope you are all well and enjoying your summer
(if it is, indeed, summer where you are).
~ Becca Stadtlander (long time fan of Becca's work, this one is my new fave)
~ Vanessa Cooper ( new to me & a new fave)
~ Josep Moncada ( also, new to me. Love the way he captures water)
Which one is your favorite?
Until next time...
Hello sweet ones....
Would you believe me if I said, I actually didn't realize at first, that I was making today all about Andrea D'Aquino? It's true...I thought I was featuring several different artists and quickly realized, they were all by Andrea! Isn't her work stunning? Frankly, I am in love with all 3 of these pieces. Which one is your fave?
~ The deep, rich green and the tiny hints of color, speak to a whole world going on in there. here.
~ simplicity and the perfect amount (and shade) of color. here.
~ Once again, the colors are just perfect together. I love that she seems capable of so many different styles but, all unified by her color palatte and sense of beauty. here.
Have a wonderful day, my friends.
See you soon!
So sorry that I have been so absent. I am still trying to figure out how to balance working in my workshop & the blog. I'll figure it out eventually! Thought I would lighten the beginning of your week a bit, with some beautiful art. All new artists, to me. Jaw dropping detail & happy- inducing illustration. Enjoy!
~ Christian Robinson's work is new to me but, I am so happy to have found his gorgeous illustrations for Patricia Hruby Powell's new children's book, Josephine (to be released by Chronicle in January, 2014). Christian says his mission is "love and happiness". Mission accomplished.
~ Fabienne Auzolle's work was introduced to me by another beautiful artist (Paola Zakimi) and I have fallen hard. Her sculpture draws upon clay, enamel and antique jewelry she picks up at flea markets. Beautiful.
~ Kristi Malakoff The image above is a detail from her life size installation "Maibaum". Made entirely of paper. Hair, ribbon, all of it. I am floored. With all of the amazing paper artists out there, I am still in awe of the detail in her work and wondering how long it took her to complete this piece? Just amazing.
I hope you have a wonderful week, my friends.
see you soon!
A little art to make your wednesday a little brighter. One of my favorites, beautiful watercolor & the coolest rhino around.
~ Totem II by Dominique Fortin
~ Sketchbook by Maria Stezhko
~ Colonial Troop by Josephine Bourghardt
Have a lovely day, friends. I will see you back here tomorrow.
A little art, to make your wednesday a little brighter. A beautiful night, the rosiest of cheeks and the sweetest fawn.
~ Whistler's "Nocturne in Black and Gold – The Falling Rocket" here ( gorgeous blues and the promise of a magical night)
~ Keiko Hasegawa's "Untitled" here. Whimsy & color...beautiful.
~ John Hanna, He did all of the illustrated covers for a publication, called Country Fair, in the 50's. Asbury & Asbury seems to have the most information on him & his life, here. (original image found via Ez)
I hope you have a wonderful wednesday, my friends! I will see you back here tomorrow, for a new" Little things".
I am kind of rushing around today but, I thought I would leave you with some beautiful art, to brighten your mid-week day. Not too many words, I'll just let them speak for themselves, today!
~ Nomoco here
~ Mari Andrews here
~ Hazen21 here
Have a great day, my friends! I will see you back here tomorrow.
Until then, take care of one another.
Vibrant color, one of my favorites and a pensive bear. A little art to brighten your mid-week day.
~ Zutto's work is new to me. A self-taught artist from Russia. I love the whimsy and vibrancy in her work.
~ Olaf Hajek's work has been one of my all time favorites for awhile now. I never get tired of seeing his pieces, I feel like I discover something new in them, every time. The palette he uses always speaks to me, too. Soothing and rich, together.
~ I'm pretty sure I featured on of Daniela's birds, last week. But, couldn't resist sharing this beautiful & thoughtful bear. I love the soft lines in her pieces and the soothing & beautiful colors.
I hope you found a new favorite or an old favorite!
I will see you back here tomorrow,my friends. Until then, be well!
A little art to brighten your wednesday. An indigo dress, a beautiful bird & inspiration. (I'm sure you can figure out which one inspired yesterday's post. :)
