Canadian artist Janet Hill remarks in her Etsy store description, “As a result of living in a cold climate for six months of the year, I’ve developed a strong interest in the beauty of interiors.” I can tell, and I love it! Her paintings are so glamorous and soft! Be sure to check out her blog if you enjoy the paintings above, as she has lots and lots of her work posted there!

These lovely pieces by Eugenia Pardue are in fact paintings! I would have never guessed it – I thought they were molds or something like that. But as it turns out, these are paintings, acrylic on panel. They’re also pretty big! Most of her work is at least 2′ by 2′, or bigger. I’m trying to imagine how she built up the designs with the acrylic paint, because they are so carefully crafted and textured. I’m totally amazed! See more on her site.
Thanks Dear Ada for another great find!

These pieces by Ulrik Martin Larsen are so carefully made and interesting! They look really intricate and delicate and yet the chains give a lot of them a very tough feel! They’re so inspiring – people have been doing such great things with chains lately! I also really, really like the one in the second picture down because of those little wood fingers along the edges! What do you guys think?

cross-stitch cars

When I first saw these pictures I immediately liked the beautiful cross-stitched design on the cars – but I didn’t realize until I looked a bit harder that the designs are literally cross-stitched into holes in the hood of the car! How amazing! They were created by Lithuanian artist Severija Incirauskaite-Kriauneviciene for Berlin art show Strich Und Faden. Cool, right?

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!

wrapped yarn

il_430xN.34367835.jpg
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’m really into these intricate pen and ink drawings by Yellena James – they’re so detailed and organic! Like landscapes within themselves… See more here.

rapture

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!

leather craft

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!

I absolutely adore this editorial from Cream Magazine! It was photographed by Macushla Burke, and the wonderful illustrations on top, the birds and such, are by artist Kelly Smith. I saw them on KnightCat and I keep going back to look at them more – they’re so inspiring!

These photographs may not seem like much, until you realize that the subject is the sky at varying stages of sunset! What an awesome idea! Gorgeous too. They’re by Ann Woo – check out her site here.

this is cool. I probably wouldn't have realized they were photographs, either - they look like paintings.

These are beautiful photos. I love art and recently discovered a very cool artist, Paris Gerrard. Her women are hauntingly beautiful and mysterious. Check her out. www.ParisGerrard.com She is well worth a post on. I think that the readers will love her.
