Tumbling Tuesday.

Turkey Day over…which kinda makes me sad. Am I the only one who thinks Thanksgiving has taken a back seat to Black Friday? Come on people…. Enjoy the food fest…plenty of shopping time later! Ok – got it out of my system.  Any pumpkin pie left? Jessica Gills illustrations make me want to sit on […]

Yarn Bombing and Various Activities

I know – what a weird title. Yarn bombing is just so random and secretive that I felt it was worth a spot– so here are a few examples of what happens when wayward knitters armed with knitting needles and lots of colorful yarn are allowed to roam the streets. This collection of photos is […]

Entering a Dreamlike State

Jane Dixon’s colorful illustrations make me smile. Definitely an Art Crush. If I took a rocket ship to a dream this is where I would land.

Under The Sea and Up in The Air

I’m thinking globular. Is that a word? Either way these vintage globes from Art on Globes , turned wildly cool are …way cool. Through the 5th of this month – (2 more days) you we can enjoy the wild and expressive art of Casey Gray at White Walls SF. Like this….Homebody.   Valeria Nascimento creates earthly […]

Simple Things

Simplicity in art – when done correctly with great thought and composition – is my most favorite style of all. When I discovered the artistic works of Tsilli Pines I got swept away in The Figures collection that brings together simple materials like paper, ink, thread and is then fused with minimalist color. That’s all […]
