things i love thursday

  • APPLES!  They are so beautiful and they are the perfect food.  I will not tire of photographing them, especially in their wooden crates.
  • this print by Suzi Marshall.  I saw it the other day and immediately decided I needed a print of it, so I sent her a message and she so kindly listed it on Society6 for me!  It's on its way to me...can't wait to hang it in the house Evin and I should one day (soon) have!
  • cozy clothes, 'cause it's getting COLD outside!
  • explanation videos by CGP Grey on Youtube.  CAUTION: SERIOUS TIME-SUCK.  Once you start watching, it's hard to stop!  He cracks me up.
  • my Ireland book, which finally arrived yesterday.  SUCH a long time in the making!  Of course I immediately found 3 mistakes, but I'm not surprised.  Impatience will do that to you.
  • Bryan Nash Gill.  There's a little page on him in the October issue of Martha Stewart Living (to which my amazing fiance bought me a subscription on his iPad) about his woodcut prints.  The e-version of the magazine has little videos thrown in and there was a video of Mr. Gill talking about his work...stunning.  And I pulled a personally inspiring/motivational quote from that clip, too...
I guess my process is very organic.  They're things that come to me, and they're not going to come to me if I'm not working.  I mean, I can't call myself a sculptor if I'm not sculpting, I can't call myself a painter if I'm not painting, I can't call myself a printer if I'm not printing, and it's through that process of working where I get a lot of my ideas.

  1. Gorgeous autumnal picture Karly. It's raining and cold here, I could do with some of those apples to make a warming apple pie!

    I hope the print brings you and Evin much happiness in your soon to have home.
