James Nares is a well known artist who paints large canvases with giant paint laden brushes while suspended from a rigging system. The paintings have a lush, sensual quality to them. The colors and textures that are created through the movement of the brushes is just incredible.
I’m a huge fan of these dark canvases with the lighter colored brushstrokes on them. The blue pieces above remind of the sea; they are full of a dark, mysterious energy.
Check out the artist’s website and this cool post from Habitually Chic which highlights a lovely roster of interiors decked out with Nares work!
I signed up for Tumblr last night and while I was playing around with it, I ran across these portraits by UK artist Tom French. I think they are amazing… I totally wish he was offering prints but alas they’re originals and they’ve been sold. Still, pretty drool worthy, no?
By now, anyone who reads this blog should know how much I absolutely adore Sandra Suy. I check her Dripbook page to keep up on new work and just to generally drool over the arty goodness that is Sandra Suy.
Can you believe all the times I’ve been on Dripbook it never occurred to me to look for more art and illustration? Well, I’m making up for lost time…
I absolutely adore this… I mean, seriously, what is not to love?
I love the color and movement here… it’s very serene.
I love that ultrablond halo – she looks like a siren!
Apparently, I’m also a fan of underwater photography because that’s what caught my eye. This set is by photographer Mallory Morrison. Please don’t let this person have an online shop like Sandra Suy does or I’m doomed!
