Fine Art Friday: Ships and Street Art

There are the posts that I conceive, write and rewrite, and then there are my fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants Friday posts. This one happens to be one of the latter;)

Over the past 2 weeks, I have discovered 2 new-to-me artists. One is a blogger who does paper art and street art. The other is a sculptor. Both have this amusing and imaginative way of creating things.

Katie, Sokoler’s work is fun! This one reminds me of a secret hideaway.

These days I have been exploring childhood hideaways in my own paintings.  I have really enjoyed reading her blog, ColorMeKatie.

Another artist whose work blew me away is Ann Wood. Her sculptures of ships made from precious textiles such as antique feed sacks and vintage wedding gowns are inspiring.

The paper mache palette of white and grays is also highly appealing.

I’m off on my own little adventure this weekend. I have big plans to show you the Postcards from the trip as part of the Postcards Series and a tour of my Studio, when I return.

Happy Mother’s Day and Happy Friday!
