my favorite painting right now…
like many artists, i draw much of my inspiration from the colors, forms, and textures found in the natural world… i recently spent hours in the gem and mineral hall at the natural history museum and left feeling so in awe of the the beauty and variety found in the natural world.
here’re a few images from my pinterest board that have been inspiring me lately.
I really enjoyed putting together the case study for the Oh Joy! installation and thought i would do another one! It’s so fun seeing the sketches next to the finished piece! Flock Studios is a wedding collective with two of my favorite clients: La Boheme and Prim and Pixie. They had just opened a new studio space (full studio tour coming soon!) and wanted Bramble Workshop to create a site specific installation. We drew our inspiration from their beautiful logo because we loved the combination of an angular design and a washy, atmospheric painting.
to paint the mural we first marked the design off with painters tape and paper. then, we applied washes of diluted latex and acrylic paint dripped from above… i had experimented with the technique on my studio wall so i knew that it would work. also, i’m lucky enough to have an intern- kamryn stimpson- who is an expert water colorist!
hayley sheldon is an artist and designer based in florida. she works at anthropologie (where i also worked) and i really love her installations and displays. i follow her work on instagram and her pinterest boards are one of the first places i go for inspiration when starting new projects… such a talented lady! i hope we can meet someday!
