I spent last night fooling around with India ink. In addition to this little guy, there was another cactus, tulips, circus, hot air balloon and a pineapple.
perfect for a sunny friday afternoon: daffodil oil painting by artist peter gerasimon. born in buenos aires, gerasimon currently lives in australia where he creates all kinds of other paintings you can see here (i especially like his hot air balloon and cable car paintings). the gradient background and the bright colours would be an excellent addition to a kitchen or bathroom—or any other room really.
etsy find of the day: fashion paintings from kathryn elyse. the artist uses watercolors and ink on paper to recreate fashion looks from top designers. she sells both originals ($125-200) and prints ($20) in her etsy shop. my favourites include this louis vuitton, vivienne westwood, alexander mcqueen and tim walker. these would look excellent anywhere in your home, but i can imagine them at the end of a walk-in closet…maybe one day!
etsy find of the day: art by kat hannah. this is one of my favorite prints, entitled ‘the redhead’. the rest of the work in hannah’s shop is just as lovely. she sells both prints and originals, as well as offering a matting service so the art will arrive ready to be framed. check out the rest of her work here.
garden at giverny, 1900. i visited claude monet’s garden at giverny in 2002 and it was a fantastic afternoon. my mum and i took the train after visiting versailles and, of course, got lost on the way home. unfortunately, the water lilies were not fully in bloom. if i can find the photos—taken before we went digital—i will be sure to post them.
