Don’t you love that anticipation after you’ve ordered something special, knowing that anytime your little bundle will arrive addressed to you? My order arrived from Restless Things and I just adore every bit of it…

Here are some fabulous prints that caught my attention today over at Thumbtack Press, who happens to have a very strong collection of prints online featuring the work of some of my favorite artists. I’m hoping that you’ll enjoy them along with me. :)
I adore Bride Diving by Penelope Dullaghan and Gossip by Chris Silas Neal. I always seem to go for images of girls jumping, not because I secretly have thoughts of suicide or anything (he he), more because I am constantly jumping into new things and love the thrill of just getting involved in something I’m passionate about. Also shown above is Bluebell by Lilly Piri and Presagio di Primavera by Gianluca Fol?. Drool.
And finally, Don’t You Leave Me Here by Matthew Woodson. Isn’t this a melancholy, tender, emotionally charged glimpse into the life of the modern relationship? We all have fears of being abandoned at times and I think artist Matthew Woodson did such a great job capturing this emotion here.

It’s called The Moldy Doily (he he) and features mostly fashion related things — I really like them, and I adore her fashion inspired paintings too — I just love seeing gorgeous clothing and bright over-done makeup (don’t we all), it’s quite lovely I think and makes me think of posters and store presentations I recall seeing on past vacations to Paris. This painting is my favorite because I like the imagery and colors here and I think the message is quite true as funny as it may sound at first, “The strongest weapon in the world – the teenage girl.”
Speaking of fashion, Ez wrote a piece on her blog today called Holly’s Fashion Corner that I think is the sweetest thing ever. :) I sent her some links yesterday showing her some clothes that I’d love to own based on a recent shopping trip to Nordstrom and she posted them. What a good friend she is to construct an entire post about it. Thank you, Ez.

Lots of eye candy for you today! I have a crush on Mark Lund, well at least his work anyway. Whenever I see it, I instantly know it must be him and when I check the image credits I’m usually right. I’m sure you do the same thing with some of your favorite photographers, too.
I first discovered Mark in the pages of Real Simple magazine, but he works for lots of high profile clients so I’m sure you’ve spotted his photography in some of your favorite magazines and advertisements too. In addition to Mark Lund Photography where he shoots interiors and such, he also runs Homeroom Studio in New York City (pictures of his studio space here), where he is the director of photography. Homeroom Studio deals mostly with in-studio still life product photography.
Just look at some of his work, it’s glorious. I’m sure that you’ll instantly recognize some of it. And be sure to check out both of his websites for more beautiful imagery to inspire you today.
