Aren’t these paintings by Shelton Walsmith lovely? I really love the colors and the abstract feel. Be sure to check out his website – all of his work is really good! I would have put every painting he has in this post if I could have!

There’s something really appealing about these yarn wrapped beads – I don’t know if it’s just that they are so whimsical and tiny, or the colors, or what! They’re made by Maria Cavallero of Argentina, who has many more of these little charmers on her Etsy – take a look if you feel so inclined!
I saw these on Love Forever.
I really love these crazy drawings by James Roper! There is so much happening in them! These are from a set called Rapture, but if you’re into them you should definitely check out the work on the rest of his site, as he has lots of work where he experiments with color and lines in a similar way. Fun stuff!
Frieda Gossett dyes, treats, and hand-stamps designs onto leather before turning it into various creatures. I can’t imagine how long it must take to hand-stamp each little detail into the leather! It’s got to be quite a process! Totally worth it though, these animals are just amazing! I’m especially impressed with the scales on the hammerhead – wow!
If you’ve visited Philly, or live here, you may already be familiar with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, which is responsible for helping Philly be the city with the most murals in the USA – we have more than 2,700 – covering everything from famous residents to jeep parts. The festive trucks shown above are part of one of the Mural Arts Program’s latest projects. Partnering with Philadelphia University’s Design Center, together they wrapped 10 of the city’s garbage & recycling trucks in these funky all-over prints! They’ve been doing the rounds with the rest of the trucks since Earth Day, and the other day I saw one on my street! It sounds silly but I was excited! I think next they should wrap all the rest of the trucks…
For a little more…
These wonderful colorful paintings are by the aptly named Julianna Bright! Such a perfect name for an artist who uses bright color! I’ve been browsing around her site all morning, getting my fill of her fun little people and their animal buddies… Check out her Etsy shop if you feel the need for a print!
