I actually featured the work of this artist, Lisa Golightly, in yesterday's post as well. You can buy this print right here. Have a great weekend!
I say, as it hits 90. It's been a hot summer all around, I'm fairly certain. And while technically it won't be over till past the middle of next month (but who's counting?), the kids are back in school, and we are getting a few (read: one) chilly days here and there. It's fall, y'all, so here are a few transitional sweaters (wear 'em with shorts while you still can!): 1 / 2 / 3 / 4
Although it might as well be Pink Weekend, because this one's a biggie, and it's gorgeous. Feast your eyes on Surrounded Islands, a huge art installation completed in 1983 in Biscayne Bay by artistic duo, Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Seriously, those prep sketches are so pretty I don't know what to do with myself. Even if you're familiar with the work, witness it again from conception to realization:
When Leo first met Louie, I thought the two of them couldn't be more different. And while that's still very true, at the end of the day, they're two sides of the same sandwich-loving coin. (via my Instagram)
Check out these gesture drawings and paintings by artist, Marina M. Gestural drawing is by far my favorite style of illustration. It captures movement and feeling like no other.
This quick and relaxed style is great for both nature drawing and people watching, as evidenced by these gorgeous works.
For some reason I've been in a duvet-purchasing/researching mood. I love geometric prints and patterns for bedding and have been on a search for the perfect one for a while. Here's a few finds. (1 / 2 / 3)

Mixed media's always had a place in my heart, especially works involving thread (exhibit A, B, C, and D). Something about the dueling textures, and my love for fabric and thread in general, really makes them hit the spot. Take these pieces by Izziyana Suhaimi for example. Stunning.
I was so taken upon discovering the work from Marco Stefanelli's Brecce Collection, scrap wood pieces illuminated from within by cast resin embedded with LEDs. My first thought was, "How amazing would these be as outdoor furniture and lighting?" Specifically, I'm imagining a wide open space littered with these glowing branches. And it's lovely.
