An Artful Weekend: Self Help for Your Walls

Oh my how time flies! I realize I've been away for almost two weeks and things have been so hectic that I'm making sure to take this long weekend to breath and exhale. I hope to be back to regular programming here at The Daylight soon but wanted to share these little prints that the artist refers to as 'feel good, self help for your walls', I love it!

 I hope your weekend is exhilarating and restful all at the same time...Enjoy!

Color Addiction: Chartreuse

I am seriously addicted to everything chartreuse right now. Radiating energy and optimism, I simply cannot get enough of it. I realized almost everything I have painted, photographed or purchased in the last month has been some shade of the acid bright hue...

An Artful Weekend: Michael Cina

Happy Friday! The sun in shining here, the temperatures are rising and I could not be more happy to be spending the time at home in Seattle. I wanted to share some of my favorite works of artist Michael Cina today to inspire an artful and serene weekend...

I love the way he floats his abstraction in the center of the page without them feeling static or one dimensional, instead it sparks intrigue and interest. And I can't get enough of this pop of neon yellow we're seeing everywhere these days, it's like liquid sunshine coming through...Enjoy!!

My Daylight: To String a Mountain

You know the only thing I enjoy more than being crafty? Being crafty with a buddy! Last weekend my wonderful friend Jess [follow her on instagram here] and I got our craft on and I could not be happier with the end result. This was a completely collaborative effort [we actually switched off nailing and stringing] and it was kind of incredible to see the what two creative minds instead of one can produce organically...

We're both incredibly inspired by the mountains that surround us here so we made our own little version of our Olympic view with wood, nails and yarn. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday afternoon, I'm sincerely hoping this becomes a weekend tradition...Enjoy!

Love it / Live it: Ocean Blues

I've been starting to put together plans for my next show [details to come soon] and I got an extra kick of inspiration when I came across this little top that looks like the fabric is made from one of my own paintings! It is my in my favorite palette and having just spent the weekend on the beach in sunny SoCal, I've been again reminded how good the ocean blues can be for the soul so why fight it?

I cannot believe it is May already, can you?? I guess it's true what they say, time really does fly when you're having fun...Enjoy!
