  • great concept: wall blank

    i think this is a super cool concept. wall blank is a website by artists for artists that offers a new limited edition piece of art every day. they track down talented artists and give them an opportunity to put a piece up for purchase. the prices are fair and reasonable. here are some of my favorite pieces. the first is from lorena vigil-escalera guirado and is called "hope". it sells for $14 for the 6X6.


    here is another that i adore. it is called "share" and is by jo conlon. the prices are great.


    this is a funky one by eric hancock. the concept is beautiful and it is called "o".

    i like this called "long story" and is by sebastián cudicio.


    head over to
    wall blank
    to see what today's print is.

    my friend stephen introduced me to the amazing art of scott petrie. he is amazing! scott is internationally acclaimed and recently opened a new exhibition called "reflections of australia". scott has taken his love for australia and created some incredible pieces of art.



    scott also recently teamed up with "nying zemo" a new-york based nepal made rug company and they are taking his gorgeous artwork and turning them into rungs. check them out here.



    as if he isn't busy enough he also teamed up with "ready to go" to create artist signature condom tins. yes...you heard me correctly, scott and "ready to go" are bringing awareness to enhance safe sex. buy the tin here.

    ***this is a guest blog by jaime anderson. she had a great display on her table when i went to visit last week and I asked her to write about it!***

    after being inspired while shopping at west elm last week, i decided to try and create some of the centerpieces i had seen. i bought a can of metallic silver spray paint and went to work! (you can buy silver spray paint at any hardware or craft store for around $3)

    first, i went in my backyard and gathered sticks of different lengths. i laid them on newspaper outside and sprayed away. when the sticks had dried i put them in a tall, cylinder glass vase.
