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!
