Where did Friday come from?

This week has flown by faster than I can even believe. It feels like maybe Tuesday night, but alas, tomorrow is Friday! This week I was really inspired by my fellow artists. I discovered many new talents that have energized my artistic well, and I really want to share them with you!

Elizabeth over at Haru, has blown my mind with her insanely cool paper wreaths! Can you imagine the work that goes into creating one of these??? They are just simply gorgeous! This one came to my house to stay, and I love it so much! I cant wait to figure out where to hang it!

I dont know how I have never seen Betsy Walton's work before, but I am glad that I have now! I have been drooling over her portfolio and shop all week long! I just keep revisiting her pages and each time I see her work, I see something new. You know that feeling you get when you see something that just speaks to you, and you dont know how to explain why? Well, that is what Betsy's work is doing for me! Her details are imaginative, moving and thoughtful. I would love a room in my home just dedicated to her work alone. What a bright and happy place it would be!

Lastly I have to share the 365 blog of Jen Renninger. Her digital collages are wowing me everyday! We share a few of the same concerns about the varying styles displayed in our one a day work, as if schizophrenia had taken over our paint brushes. It is nice to know I am not alone! I think that Jen has an amazing storytelling ability, and each of her pieces speaks volumes! I love so many of them, picking one favorite is impossible! Lucky us, Jen has prints of her 365 project in her shop!!! (UPDATE! Today I received the prints that I ordered from Jen, and you can't even imagine how insane these are in person! So much more detail to fawn over in person! They are spectacular! THANKS JEN!!)

Also, this was an incredible mail week! Aside from all of the boring supplies that I am so dorkily excited to have all stocked up, I received a few really special deliveries! All of the Valentines that I have received from the Swap are really diverse and fun. It is amazing to see everyones different interpretations, and nice to get a bevy of fun art in the mail! Thank you so much to Tyn for organizing everything, and for all of the participants for making my mailbox a fun place to visit! ;) Cant wait for next year!!
