Hey Flower Face

Confession: I have a huge girl-crush on artist Clare Elsaesser and her painting skills. 

I've always been a sucker for a messy brush stroke, especially when the subject is nature (Monet's water scenes-- I die), thus after stumbling upon these beautiful flower-faced females, I fell in love. 

There's a very romantic and dreamy quality about these paintings that draws me in. They have an air of mystery, perhaps related to the anonymity of faceless girls, that's both familiar yet distant at the same time. 

But alas, I'll leave the art-history-major-analysis for later and take in the pretty pictures instead.

Happy Wednesday, world!

Jay Ahr, Resort 2014

Tra-la-la-la-la-la when I saw these photos I died.

Not really, obviously, but, you know, I was pretty close.

Can you tell I've had extra caffeine today??

Love, love, love, the minimalism here. I've been on a boho kick for quite some time, so the clean lines, monochromatic color scheme, and simple styling is very refreshing.

Any hoot, today is the Fourth of July! This post is about as patriotic as Confederate flag but whatever.
