Total Black

Just came across these really cool black and white images in an Italian magazine. I love the simplicity and coolness of these interiors, such a bold statement. Showcasing a mix of Classic forms and linear design this is very suave indeed!

No need to comment further, the images speak for themselves!

Jesscia Zoob

I have just come back from my Easter break and still in a holiday mood I am finding these paintings very inspiring. The artist in question is Jesscia Zoob.

With a vast use of media, she uses a mixture of oil paints, acrylics, gels textured with glass, cement, sand or crushed garnet and gesso in order to build a painting’s underlying structure. Many of the paintings are created by a process of building up and scraping back layers of paint. Some works may also be embellished with crystal jewels, beads, pearls, metal disks or tiny shells.

Personally I find these very refreshing and calming, each painting showing her love for untamed nature. Here are a few of my favourites...

Spring Is Here!

I'm still enjoying my Easter break and thought I would share with you some photos that I took during one of my many walks in the countryside.

I'm back next week and will resume blogging as usual. In the mean time I'm off to enjoy some Tuscan sun. ;)
