Stay Creative in 2012

Whoosh! Hear that? It's the time that's flown by since I last posted on this blog. I'm back in school for Winter term 2012. Blowing off the dust from this space, updating info and considering a new look and name soon. For today I'll just say, "hello, again!", and share with you a neat poster I discovered over here and the original is here. Since we bought our first house and my vintage business has been growing, I don't get much creative time in until I am working on assignments for school. That is unless I count photography, which I believe I will since I capture images that inspire me almost every week thanks to my iPhone and some super camera apps. All this is to say, I'm back for a bit, and I hope you're having a happy new year.

Hope you'll stop in and see what I'm up to in 2012!

Maxfield Parrish - Winter


Everyone knows Maxfield Parrish for his ethereal, scenic garden and sunset paintings. Most have seen a fantastic blue-rose-gold sunrise and likened it to the work of Parrish--and rightfully so.

Lull Brook in Winter

White Birches in the Snow (1952)

Village Church at Dusk (1941)

One of my illustration heroes, Parrish, although often panned by critics, is an icon in the art world. He called himself the painter of "girls on rocks" and while those are his most famous works, he was prolific in scenery and human studies (beyond girls in togas) as well.

Christmas Morning (1949)

The images in this post feature a handful of his lesser known gems.
