Sweet Weekends

Dreamy sweet long weekends... I love. Mostly lots of time with friends and eating all my favorites. I've recently selected my next commission painting of choice (... Okay, I love when I can be choosey.... I can't help it!)- and I am so enthused about it! I'm so unbelievably excited to begin. This large mod portrait for an amazing duo in New York that I am already convinced are just the most lovely people. ( More to come on that later ) For today... I'm obsessed with these sugar coated candy soft images from Puet-Etre Magazine. Hmmmm. What a sweet soft world this is.

Masks Richard Burbridge

Strange Masks by Richard Burbridge... I love these. Pictures for those days when you don't feel like talking. A little bit scary, soft, deeply expressive. I would paint these if I wasn't worried what people would think, which perhaps I shouldn't be worrying about anyways! I love them.

Daily Muse: Wintery Fashion

I've been on a secret mission to find inspiration for my next painting... one for my bedroom. Now that my room mate and I are getting all settled into our cozy apartment in Brentwood, I am ready to start getting my art up- "the girls" as we call them! I am on a quick holiday to Colorado and I guess it has me appreciating the seasons again. This is a beautiful wintery fashion spread 'Glacial Glamour'  from Flare Magazines December issue... I am just loving the soft tones and bold accents. Styled by Elizabeth Cabral and photographed by Chris Nicholls. Beauty.

Sartorialist Shows Fall Fashion

Fall fashion on the Sartorialist lately... I'm loving it all. Fashion is so much more than clothing. There is something about piling on layers, the muted colors... and the tailored pieces that appear each fall that is understated and comforting every time. Bring on the comfort of fall...
