ARTmonday: 11 Retro Style Campers

Everywhere you turn there’s a vintage retro camper, or glamping scene. Granted the two are totally different, but still, two sides of the same coin. While I could be convinced to glamp, you won’t catch me in a camper, ’50s style chic or otherwise. I am, however, charmed by some of the images. I also kinda love the idealization of the old-fashioned camping trip, in artwork mind you, not in real life, thank you very much.

A few months ago Rise Art asked me to curate a summer-themed art collection—”Summer Is Coming“—which features some camp and road trip inspired artwork. One of my favorites from that collection is this first piece, a technicolor blur of a family camp scene.

I searched for other similar images, but wound up finding illustrations mostly vintage campers, so I figured I’d just go with it.

ARTmonday: Jaime Derringer Art, Abstract Drawings and Paintings

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a regular contributor to Design Milk,  the best contemporary design site on the web, founded and headed by Jaime Derringer. It turns out, that not only is Jaime super great at her job, she’s also an artist. I knew she did various graphic works for various collaborations, but the other day I saw she had pinned these fantastic, colorful abstract artworks—and they’re hers. I love the clear, bright palette and mix of blocky and curvy shapes. I think I may even pick one out for the condo in Delray Beach. Jaime Derringer art would certainly pop on white.

ARTmonday: 25 Mountains + Icebergs

I’ve been sorting though my  art b0ard on Pinterest because it is overflowing with over 1300 pins. I already have separate boards for abstracts, sculptures & installations, nudes (though I need to pull this down because I keep getting warnings), female figures, and photography, but now I need to subcategorize even more, so I’ve created landscapes, and will probably move on to still lives and portraits. I’ve noticed I have an abundance of contemporary artwork, especially illustration, picturing mountains and icebergs. This is hardly a surprise, given the current craze for all things “geo” (triangles, facets, polyhedrosn,etc.). They’re appealing, and season appropriate, so here you go.

ARTmonday: TurningArt

Sorry for the late night post. Spent the snowy weekend organizing cabinets and hanging with friends, including interior designer Alison Sheffield and photographer Stephen Sheffield, when I guess I should have been blogging. Then today, had a whole bunch of style stories due to the Boston Globe. I was kinda thinking of skipping out early tonight to bed, but I just got an email from a Boston area company called TurningArt, so here we go.

The Boston-based start-up, founded by 35-year-old seasoned webpreneur Jason Gracilieri, is a sort of Netflix for art. For $10/month, the site will send you a framed print of an original artwork of your choosing, which you can swap as often as you like. Shipping is free and and membership dollars get banked as ArtCredit, which can be used to buy prints or original pieces from the site.

After a quick survey about your taste (literal vs. abstract), your way of life (city vs. suburbs), and how you approach it (conversation starter vs. laugh inducer), TurningArt assigns you a “Personal Curator.” Mine’s name is Mari. “She” curated  ten pieces for me to kickstart my collection. The pieces were a bit more representational and traditional than my actual leanings. Here’s  a sampling of artwork I found by browsing that I could live with:

ARTmonday: 20 Illustrated Arrays, From Modern Chairs to Lady Gaga

I saw the first image here, So Many Trees, So Little Time by Eloise Renouf, on Pinterest today via my favorite art pinner, drawdrawdraw*, and was struck by it for a few reasons. First, the caption said, “ways to draw trees,” and I thought it would be helpful for my 10-year-old who struggles with all the illustrations he’s required to do for school. Second, once I focused in on it, I saw the obvious resemblance to Marimekko patterns; particularly Siirtolapuutarha (I bought that pillow cover in Finland in May). Finally, as I was trying to decide what to feature today, and came to the conclusion it should be child-centric, but not obviously so, I thought images in this vein would work. Simple drawings of items arrayed, some almost chart-like, all easily digestible, some child-like, others just decoratively geometric, and some sassy illustrations. I hope you like the mix.
