Pressed Flowers






I came across these pressed flower collages by Little Magic House in my Etsy feed last night. It's such a lovely, Victorian aesthetic.

Jungle Tableau






Another day, another artist to adore. Today it's the Brooklyn-based Art and People and her moody paintings of vegetation. The plants, darkly lit and haphazardly arranged, all have an air of neglect about them. It's as though someone shoved them against a far wall and forgot about them, or carried them into a greenhouse and never bothered to return. But there is a slight glow of fecundity creeping out from underneath the leaves, despite my speculative scene of abandonment. These are stubborn plants, and wily. They are determined to grow. It's an admirable quality.

Essentially, I am very attracted to plants that refuse to die.

See more in the Art and People shop.

Hypnotizing

Or liquide

Or liquide  (4 photos)

I am more than a little mesmerized by these photographs of sand in water by Sylvain Meyer. Doesn't it looks like molten gold? See it in action here.

Discovered on but does it float.
