Emerging Artists:Be Calm

Sometimes art is like yoga for the mind and this piece by William Lamson, seen on 20×200 truly makes my heart slow down, my breathing becoming calm  and my mind truly at peace. Is this not breathtaking? I’m a HUGE Curb Your Enthusiasm fan and I just found this poster by Ibraheem Youssef, a Toronto […]

Emerging Artists and Textile Art

From  That’s Happy I found this. I’m not exactly sure what it is but that doesn’t really matter….because when something is this gorgeous and looks this warm I love it! Cody Hudson – you’re a genius. This tower leaves me speechless. And these colors. Oh my. Notice the Death Star comment? Yes this chair is […]

As I was saying…..

….what was I saying? Ah yes…Friday and time to clean house, see friends….drink some great wine with someone special….and think artful thoughts. I rarely hang a  calender because usually they are simply tacky. Yes I said it – TACKY. But this one from Design Files is so NOT TACKY. It features these simply gorgeous illustrations […]

Art News and Artful Absolutes

Sunny and 75 here in the Bay Area. I’m digging it….(it’s why we pay the big bucks to live here)…. Did you all see this little ditty from Anthropologie? Dancing ornaments and things that move on their own when they usually don’t. Please visit. It may quite well knock your socks off. It did mine! […]

Fall Arts and Illustrious Imagining

Everyone have a relaxing holiday? I did  – hardly did anything! However….I should be playing the lottery because last week I went to Traders Joe’s and my purchase came to $7.77. Damn – those lucky stars must be out. Well – I did get art lucky and found items that are melodic and ethereal and […]

Studio Artists:Photography Binge

A Blank Wall

A blank wall beckons and it needs to be filled up. But you know – I don’t think this should be done impulsively – but instead done with great thought. So today I found some not-so-ordinary pieces that I think would look fabulous on a blank wall. And these are not your standard garden variety pedestrian wall […]

Emerging Artists; Under $20

 Today I’m focusing on fab finds under $20. Kinda like finding five bucks left over from your winter coat. A trio of sandwich keychains. Peanut butter, nutella or banana? Hmmm..ok – I’m taking the peanut butter. Not an easy choice because there are all so dang cute. Remember when a thick mustache was all the […]

Emerging Artists; Yellow Pole

Maybe because it’s raining that I am so drawn to summer colors so this gorgeous original photograph by Labokoff on Etsy really got my attention. I just want to take it home and think about being warm and having the sun shine on me. Pole Jaune is transcendent….and barely surreal. Bookmark on Delicious Recomend on […]

Emerging Artists; Catfish

I like the play on words and once again LA photographer Katie Shapiro takes an ordinary image, like this captivating feline diptych, and makes it compelling, interesting and anything but ordinary. Her images give truth to humanity taking joy in simplicity. Bookmark on Delicious Recomend on FacebookShare on Orkutshare via RedditShare with StumblersTumblr itTweet about […]

Emerging Artist; Nude Silouette

This piece is haunting and exquisite. The art of Polaroid transfer is truly unique and with the difficulty in getting the film it is becoming even more important. This piece, Girls and Dreams, from She Hit Pause Studio on Etsy is striking and compelling and just a bit sexy. Bookmark on Delicious Recomend on FacebookShare […]

Emerging Artist; Retro Beach

This piece just makes me want to watch episodes of Mad Men over and over. Maybe smoke a long cigarette, dangle a martini from my fingers and wear funky white rimmed sunglasses that just scream…FUN! Love this print, Dream On,  from JKL Design. Bookmark on Delicious Recomend on FacebookShare on Orkutshare via RedditShare with StumblersTumblr […]
