There has been a lot of art that's been catching my eye lately! Thought I'd share it with you :)

In Barnes and Noble the other day, I came across The Sweetly Diabolic Art of Jim Flora and flipped through it for more than a few minutes. Jim Flora's work is so much fun. Like this piece, for instance:

And this one...

And then, as I read this lovely blog (amazing girls' clothing, so stay to check it out,) I was introduced to Maxfield Parrish. I really love the nursery rhyme illustrations. Like this one:

And Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater...

And then there's all that AMAZING art to be found on Etsy. I've been wanting an ABC print like this one from The Wheatfield...

Or this one from Orange Studio by Helen Dardik

Both these shops have GREAT art to offer. Here's another one of my favorites from Orange Studio. Check out the moka pot!! Awesome.

*sigh* someday soon when we have our own place and we have a school room (or area :) I will buy one of those ABC prints!!!

In the meantime, if there are any inspiring artists' links you could give me, I'd be happy to drool over them :)

Lastly, have you seen this video?? Pretty cool.


  1. Waaaay cool! Thanks for sharing--absolutely loved the song. Oh, I blogged--not nearly so inspirational though ;)

  2. I do remember you. I think you left Gum Branch about a month after we got married. I have actually looked and yours and Casey's facebook several times. Thanks for your advice. However, my girls learned to escape the pack-n-plays in November, long before they were escaping their crib. Your kids are precious, and you look GREAT!

  3. Here is an artist for you to check out. He is married to my husband's cousin. I love his work and we own one of his originals.
