April Showers Bring…

April showers bring more curiosity, influence, imagination, desire and aspiration than the months before have gifted. Stepping away from the usual to experience new happenings and insights, then skipping back. Happy.

*Mary Blair*

ART PARADE

One of my favorite, most influential artists of all time is Artist, Mary Blair. I think her work is grand and vibrant with retro flair and an abundance of abstract imagery .

I personally find it challenging to carry storytelling into my artwork, of which I abhor and will continually work on. But her vision is clear and allures one with it’s exceptional charm.

….from the imagination of Mary Blair…..

*Brandi Milne*

ART PARADE

Of all the Artists I’ve found in the recent years the one whose work I’ve swooned over the most is that of Artist, Brandi Milne. The dark, sweet emotion and nostalgia of her paintings seem to pull from the likes of childhood dreams and storytelling.

Here, for your enjoyment, is a bit of her work.

“Alone”

“3”

“Before I Hide Away”

“Did You See Me?”

“Here Alone With You”

“I Dont Hear You Anymore”

“How Can I Shine Without You?”

“Baron of the Deep”

“Whisper Them To Me”

“She Wears The Trees In Her Hair And The Clouds In Her Eyes”

“White Fawn Sugar Scape”

“And Such Is Life”

“The Telling Tale”

“maggies gift”

“let’s eat cake”

“comfort”

“young foolery”

“the sweetest treat”

“maniac on sugar island”

“princess toadstool”

“May Grady”

“the tea party”

“The Ringmaster”

“off with her head”

“Ella Harper”

Eye Candy…

These are a few of my favorite paintings by artists I’m greatly inspired by.

"Sea Ice Caravel" by Amy Sol

"Spring Blush" by Amy Sol

I first found Amy Sol’s work a few years ago on the cover of Hi Fructose Vol. 5. Her work feels soft and euphoric to me. Sweet and beautiful. You can see more of it at amysol.com/blog.

Laura Laine for Oeil De La Mode

Laura Laine for Ghost

Laura Laine for Zara

I’m obsessed with Laura Laine’s work. I find it chic and glamorous. Ethereal and dark. See her amazing work (in advertisement) at lauralaine.net.
