images of springtime, courtesy of etsy

i put a post up for the photographers of etsy team blog earlier this week, saying that I’m yearning for spring with all it’s soft freshness and optimism, and then i thought why not do a little something like that right here in this space too, because you can never get enough positive inspiration…

glass and ceramics by jess wainer

i have got a few (not necessarily exciting) personal projects going on that are occupying my time, so i’ll only be writing sporadically for the next several weeks. in the meantime i hope you enjoy this ever-so-haunting glass and ceramic work from jess wainer. she is using a sgrafitto technique on the glass vases. very interesting.

ky anderson paintings

it snowed again last night and it made me really depressed. these winter months with little light really set my teeth on edge and i am right about at the time of the year when i say that i can’t take it anymore. haven’t uttered it yet though. or maybe i did yesterday, i can’t remember. but i’m sitting here ignoring the bitter cold and putting off clearing the sidewalks around my house to focus on the pastoral tones in these abstract works in oil from brooklyn-based artist ky anderson instead. yes! what she paints is where i yearn to be in my mind – someplace where serene calm is peppered with bits of playful liveliness. yes, i need to be there right now.

joe johnson photography

i am absolutely wild about the rich magnificence of all that is kansas, now that i have seen it through the eyes of joe johnson.

joe_johnson_photography_kansas_series_

actually, i take that back. i became wild about kansas when i saw jared may’s collection. this collection here from joe simply confirms my admiration for the vast and great midwest. and for stunning photography. 🙂
