street art

Standard

Today I’m going to share with all of you some awesome street art that was created by the German artist duo Zebrating. Their art is defined as anamorphic. Anamorphic art is basically art that is viewed one way and then upon moving or viewing from a different angle, the art looks completely different. Some examples of this have been going around the web lately. There are images of huge studios with what appear to be randomly colored lines, and then when you stand at just the right angle, a word forms. The art duo Zebrating creates their mural on fences or railings so that at just the right angle it forms a complete picture! It’s pretty awesome! Check out some examples:

I think these are so cool! I wonder if they paint on each individual post. Do you think it would work if they were to print out a large mural and cut strips of the mural and put them on each post? Do you think the dimensioning would be all messed up? Or do you think they have to paint on each individual post? It’s such a neat idea! So creative and inventive! What do you think?

I’ve got a great artist to share with all of you today! It’s an artist I found over on Society6, and I think you’re really going to love her! Her name is Amy Hamilton, and she has a great aesthetic. She mostly paints animals, but they have a dreamlike quality to them that makes them very endearing. Check out her work!

How much do you love these little animals?! I love the messy and colorful splotches that all of them have. Most of all, I love the upside down drips of the antlers. I also really enjoy the dark color scheme of all of the pieces. They aren’t overly colorful and bright, but they are still cheerful and incredibly enjoyable. What do you guys think?

Another artist to share with all of you, Roger Kirk Nelson is a little bit different than most artist’s I feature. Reason being, is that he has a bit of a tropical vibe to him, which is not something I usually go for. However, the bright colors and fun shapes of his paintings drew me in!

What do you guys think? Do you love the bright colors and bold designs? They definitely make me smile. I feel like I am transported to some kind of tropical oasis when I look at them!

i’m back!

Hello bloggy friends! I’m sorry for my long hiatus! We’ve been struggling with some house issues due to a broken pipe. All the furniture has been transported, and I finally unearthed my laptop. Also, I just finished my licensing exam! I won’t get results until the middle of December, but I’ll keep you posted. Anyway! Let’s get down to business!

Last year for Christmas, my sister gave me the cutest little picture of a baby monkey running around. And I didn’t discover until today where it came from! It is this awesome website, or store, called The Animal Print Shop. The artist, Sharon Montrose, takes photographs of animals. I know that sounds pretty blah or run of the mill, but her photographs are amazing! I think the thing I love most about her photographs is that the animals are taken out of their natural element, and put in a white room with pretty wooden floors. She has all kinds of animals. Everything from pheasants to kittens. Tigers, lions, lambs, kangaroos all kinds of little creatures! But not just babies. Anyway, the first picture is the monkey my sister got me, but then the rest are just some of my favorites.

What do you guys think?! I love these animals! I’m kind of a sucker for animals. In case you guys didn’t notice. Wouldn’t these look so cute in a nursery? Anyway, just a little something to get us back on track. I will resume my normal Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday blogging next week! Be sure to “like” me on facebook!

So a product of following UGallery on Pinterest, is that I discovered Christine Soccio. An artist from Little Falls, New Jersey, Christine uses non-traditional materials to create a wide variety of works. She is constantly reinventing herself. Where there is too much color, she goes to black and white. When she is tired of a tool, she moves on to another one. That is such a great initiative to have. To never get too comfortable in one zone, but to be able to pack it up, move on, and start all over. Let’s see some of these pieces!

Go to this link to see more of her artwork. I love the colors, and the techniques, and the textures. I love the paint drips and the seemingly random colors, and also the underlying structure behind each of these images. What do you guys think?

Y’all. I have an awesome shop to share with you today. You know how one of my first posts ever ever was about all the beautiful fabric designs that are out there? Probably not. But it was. And today, the shop I’m going to share with you is owned by Katherine Codega, and she is a master a creating beautiful textile prints. Once you see these adorable fabrics, you’re going to instantly start thinking about how you can incorporate all of them into your next sewing project.

OH THE COLORS!

How adorable are these patterns? The only problem I have is that I can’t decide which ones to order! I want to order a fat quarter of all of them! But then I would be too nervous to cut them, and I would just have a stockpile of gorgeous adorable fabrics.. But I guess there’s nothing wrong with that! How much do you guys love these fabrics?!

finger painting

Standard

Didn’t you love finger painting as a kid? It was so much fun. You didn’t have to worry about holding a brush steady, or getting the right amount of paint on the brush or anything, you just dipped your finger in your paint and went at it. This artist, Judith Ann Braun, has taken finger painting to a whole new level. With her series called “Fingerings,” she has used charcoal dust as “paint” and her fingertips as “brushes” to create a series of pieces where she focuses on symmetry and patterns. Her works are kind of like a Seruat painting. Up close you can see the individual fingerprints, but take a step back and you can see the works as a larger picture.

Wow! Can you believe she did all of that with her fingers?! I feel like she probably always has black and dirty hands, but who cares when that is the kind of work she is creating? I love the symmetry, and I love that in some of the pieces you can feel movement. I only wish there were a little bit more color– but you guys know I’m a huge fan of color. What do you think?
