I Miss France

I was looking through old posts on my tumblr today and came across some photos I took in France last summer.  It really made me miss it and want to go back, particularly to Paris.  This is a shot of the hotel I stayed at near the Arc de Triomphe.  Would you believe this is a Best Western? Can someone please tell me why they don't look like this in the States?  What I loved most about France was their taste level.  All the architecture, interior designs and landscaping seemed so well thought out and visually satisfying. I just really enjoyed the romantic nature of the city... it was just like you see in the movies for me. I was in a dream the whole time I was there and I'd like to go back to that place at some point. Happy Friday!

Brett Manning

I've been really neglecting this blog lately but I recently came across another interesting artist I thought I'd mention named Brett Manning. I think her work is very fresh and exciting to look at.  I love the feminine aspect of it and how collectively textured everything is. I wonder if all of these are real people....hmmm.  Anyway, I'm getting really tired so I'll leave you to these. Sweet dreams!

Chris Russell: Thought this was worth blogging about

I stumbled across artist Christopher Russell today while browsing the Free People blog... Then I went to his website and this is what I found.....

I love seeing someone's art for the first time, especially when it's really amazing and inspiring.  His use of color is just so pleasing to my eyes. These remind me of how much I love the mountains and wish I was in Colorado... and also of how sad I am that my Telluride trip was suddenly canceled :(

Anyway, hope you enjoy these as much as I do.  I keep debating on which one is my favorite. I'm thinking purple.......
