Pin. Pin. Pin. And one more pin for the road. I’ve been pinning a lot of Halloween-themed stuff lately. I mean a LOT. Anyhoo, I’ll be sharing some of those closer to the Halloween and for now, stay in the Classic Pinteresting-mode:
Isn’t this picture is just beautiful. The dark background, jewel tones and all those textures…The artist really knows her colours. Via helenquinnnyc.com.
I sense a theme developing here. I pinned this image around the same time I pinned the colour picture above. There’s something about autumn that gets me craving for “gloom, doom, loom and other words ending with oom.” Quiz question: Do you know who wrote/said that? I couldn’t find the original posting of this picture but it’s from a Tumblr. Via deathrituals.tumblr.com
There’s two reasons why pinned this quote. First of all it reminds me of my friend who wears mainly black. Although last summer he ventured to neon colours, and that sent ripples of shock through his network of friends. My mind still boggles when trying understand this new development in this style. Second reason for pinning this that I often used to wonder why design professionals wear a lot of black and/or have very white homes. Then it hit me. The answer to that question. Or at least my personal theory…
Imagine working with colours day in and day out. There are constant visual explosions going on in your head. Now, black and white aren’t colours. I realized that they work the same way as pickled ginger works when eating sushi or any other palate cleansing courses when eating dinner. Black and white are visual palate cleansers. They sort of remove the data of previously digested visual information and clean your eyes and brain for new data.
Sometimes I’m just that clever.
Oh and the image is via I am the new black.
Who’s a good doggy? I added this on my Art&Artists-board. At the first glance, the drawing is very cute and sweet but there are some undertones that just break my heart. The artist has managed to capture the briefness of time that a beloved pet spends with us and how after the pet is gone, you can never ever have it back. The artist is called Valerie Davide and you can find this and more of her work here. Via Davidson Fine Art.
Last but not least…
Guess who is going here? For three weeks? C’est moi.
Via Pinterest since I didn’t find the original Tumblr.
