Weekend Inspiration: Andres Amador

I am just blown away by this beautiful, fleeting artwork.  Wouldn't it be wonderful to stumble across this.  I haven't been able to get in touch with the artist himself, but please check out more images of his work here.  And on Andres' website it appears as if you can join him in the creation of these beachscapes/sculptures/prints. I think that would be an awesome experience.  What an amazing medium, and a studio to die for, huh?!
Have a creative weekend!

This weekend seemed to go by quick!  Yesterday, I helped throw a shower for a good friend and co-worker.  We enjoyed a wine tasting at a local vineyard.  So nice!  I enjoy helping organize these things but have learned to keep it simple and not too overwhelming. I think this worked great, a few vintage table clothes, flowers in some mason jars and lots of wine!  The bride-to-be made me a lovely knit blanket at my baby shower so I wanted to return the handmade favor and made her a wreath.  I really like how it turn out, simple as well. 

In other news I got my first rejection from the show applications I've been sending out.  For the most part I am used to it, but this time since I was on a high from so much productivity in the studio, it made me question myself for a second.  Just a second though.  On ward, and back to the studio this week to complete a new commission.

(Side note; Boordy Vineyard, and specifically the interior shot above,  was used in the movie "Runaway Bride"  to film the luau scene.)
