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!
Hooray! It’s Thursday, and it’s time for our Thursday Poll!

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?
Via Garbage Dress.
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?
The designs on these (very) old calling cards are gorgeous! I love the thought of a time when people would come see you, and leave cards to say they came by if you weren’t there, or to invite you to parties, or better yet, make romantic advances! Maybe sometime, somehow, calling cards will come back…
Anyhow, these beauties came from Dull Tool Dim Bulb – check it out for a few more.
Every Monday through Friday for 20 weeks, Ann Wood, of Ann Wood Handmade, made one horse, until she had 100! Each horse is made from cardboard and hand-painted, with cute button joints! Ann currently has the horses as decoration above her bed – don’t you love them? I want to make my own, and conveniently, Ann put together a DIY tutorial for Design*Sponge! Check it out here – even if you don’t want to make a horse it’s pretty cool to see how she did it!
Why don’t people do more things like this? I love it! Artist Posterchild turned this abandoned newspaper box into a planter, with the help of a couple pieces of wood! There are so many empty newspaper boxes around Philly – I think we need some flowers for them! Click here for better pictures.
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.
