Pinspiration



Mom's had this magazine clipping hanging up over her desk for a while now.  She asked me to look at it and tell her my favorite parts.  My eye, uncontrollably, gravitates to the opaline glass - the pretty.  Mom explained that she is in love with the artwork on the back wall.  Apparently John Robshaw took a big ream of denim and used bleach to 'paint' it.  People can be such geniuses just by doing something a little different.


Happy weekend!

  1. Hey I know that technique - I used to use it on my jeans back in the 90s! SO cool as artwork…..especially on such a large scale.
    Happy weekend lovely Powell/Brower ladies!!

  7. I love the art too. My first reaction was that it looks like batique--quite the opposite approach to painting--but its effect goes perfectly with the African statue sitting next to it.

  9. I went to the artwork, too. I love this! I love how techniques keep coming around. Do you think sponge painting will return :)

  10. The artwork is stunning and it's perfectly set off by the wall color. Bleach on a canvas of denim is genius.

  11. So interesting. It reminds me of the huge abstract painting Suzanne Kasler made for a client with nail polish. Not that they look alike. Just that they're such simple but brilliant ideas.

  15. What a lovely collection of textures and colors! And I too love the glass!

    Nice to meet you Bethany; HI NANCY! I wanted to come to thank you for coming to visit my horse post! TALK ABOUT AN obsession! I LOVE HORSES and wish I could just touch one again! You have two of them? Can't they be just sweet loves, if you both speak the same language of peace and calm? Oh, enjoy them. Enjoy your weekend! Anita
