Look down!






Many times we do not even see the beauty at our feet. I make an effort to keep track of all the textures and designs bellow.

More floor beauty at Rosa Pomar's slideshow from Portugal, found via Poppytalk.

I want this!



"…when I’m lost or just plain lazy, when I really don’t know or my mind draws a blank, there is always my “Fornasetti secret formula” to get me going. Every object by Fornasetti, for example the teapot with eyes, which I have in my kitchen (and that I love), is an open door through which one is immediately sucked, like in Alice in Wonderland. And for me that’s something you can’t put a price on. Even after twenty years on the shelf, the teapot is a door that still opens. The magic still works. A Fornasetti object has the power to change vibrations in a place, not because it’s a handsome decorative object – it’s nothing to do with that. You can be in a very handsome room, very well-decorated, with a really beautiful design, for all that it is still a room grounded in real life. But put a Fornasetti in it and it takes on a very different dimension, the dimension of dream."

Fall is here!



Great shapes, colors, and most of all great design. The little chestnuts fall from great height, protected by the cocoon, which bounces and opens to reveal the wonder of its treasure... Now we just have to roast them.

Inspiring, like the amazing art of Vija Celmins.

Layers

I still think like a printmaker, and my mind still works everything in layers and a little backwards! I think it has always been so, and that is why I ended up liking printmaking.

These sketches are the first steps towards my return to painting... I like the idea so far... if it is hard to imagine what it would look like when is finished, do not despair as I plan to walk you through the process.
