Zoe Pawlak is a a Canadian artist based in Vancouver (yay Pacific Northwesterners!). I’m pretty sure that I happily stumbled on her art while surfing arouond Pinterest or something like that… or maybe even while checking links from some of my favorite bloggers on TweetDeck. However it happened, I’m supremely glad that I did. Her work is full of color, movement, expression. I find myself drawn back to her website again and again just to soak myself in the color and beauty. Here are some of my favorites:
Over Oceans by Zoe Pawlak.
Every Word by Zoe Pawlak.
Spent For Fortune by Zoe Pawlak.
You Were Always There by Zoe Pawlak.
While looking for more about Zoe Pawlak and her artwork, I found this Vimeo on her process for a commission called A Sky Is For Dreaming Into. In it she chronicles how the commission came about, what influences her, all while she actually paints!
I’m definitely hooked! I have a Zoe Pawlak on my list of must own items now… If you’re interested in seeing additional works, or would like to purchase or commission original paintings, find more to love at Zoe Pawlak. Until next time!
Artist Tom French presents some of his new works in progress on his blog. They are beautiful black and whites with a kinetic sense of movement. I’m a huge fan… and hoping that at some point he offers prints for the budget conscious among us. In the meantime check out his post Works in Progress…. You can also check out my previous ode to his work here.
Yucky yucky snow in Seatown. 😦
We’re getting acres of snow here in Seattle. That’s definitely put a damper on my storage clean out activities!
I hope you all are having an amazing and snow free Monday! Until tomorrow!
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!
