It’s stuff like this that amazes me. Each day Lorraine Loots creates a miniature painting that is surprisingly detailed for its size. It’s so inspiring to see artists so dedicated to their work and loving what they do. The 365 days ended in December, but Lorraine didn’t have the heart to stop, and why should she? These are just amazing.

You know Jordan Ferney from the blog Oh Happy Day? I got to meet her while I was at ALT in January. She was so sweet and just so happens to run one of the best party blogs; which makes this project so perfect!

To be honest I wasn’t quite ready for this week to start. Jake and I didn’t get much of a weekend. Jake was off being a zombie all weekend (literally). He left early every morning and didn’t get back until late. And since it was just Pixel and I at home I decided to be productive and do some much

I’m quickly discovering there are not enough walls in our apartment for all the art I want to hang on them. I’m hoping I can squeeze in one more of these paintings by Janet Hill. I just recently came across her work and she is quickly becoming one of my favorite painters. I love the dramatic colors and quirky subject

Aren’t these paintings so fun? Katie from Paperfashion had the idea to take everyday food items and simplify them as much as possible. It’s not as simple as you may think. This would be a perfect afternoon exercise to refresh your creative juices.
