ARTmonday: 15 Bicycle Artworks

No deep thoughts today, or even particularly serious artwork. Just some fun images of bicycles. Over the weekend it was almost warm enough, by Boston standards (and by that I mean it was over 40 degrees and sunny), to think about getting my bike down from its hanging place and going for a ride on the Esplanade. I settled for a walk It’s wet and muddy, with dirty, frozen mounds of snow still scattered, but I’m hopeful. For now (unless I become a different person and hit the new Soul Cycle),  I’ll just enjoy these 15 bicycle artworks.

ARTmonday: Women Thinking

I think it’s been awhile since I’ve done a roundup of women. If you follow this column, you know I am enamored of artwork picturing the female form, both clothed and undressed. I am particularly drawn to images exuding a sense of melancholy. These 25 artworks picture women sitting, many hugging their knees, seemingly lost in thought. Some are well-known oil paintings by artistic masters, others fashion photographs, some illustrations, and others simply pieces by contemporary artists found around the web, including Saatchi Online, Etsy, and the artist’s own websites. Which woman moves you?

ARTmonday: 20 Photos of Girls At Play

If you follow ARTmonday you know I love atmospheric portraits of women. While I’ve blogged about a couple of wonderful photographers who concentrate on photographing children, namely their own, such as Winky Lewis and Kathleen Schwartz, I haven’t yet done a full post of images featuring kids. In honor of summer, here are photographs of 20 girls at play, including one I just spotted a few minutes ago on Facebook. So nice to have artistic friends! (Sorry Stephen Sheffield that I couldn’t include your guys. I love those FB pics; boys up next!) I love that in this post I was able to mix friends and colleagues with iconic superstars, along with a piece I bought from the SMFA sale last year.

ARTmonday: 27 Ocean Wave Artworks

It’s July 1, the start of the week of the Fourth of July, a big deal around here. My boys consider it the best day of the year (and not just because we let them have soda, which is basically never allowed). We celebrate with a picnic at Corn Hill beach, which my husband has done his entire life. It’s a definite slice of Americana, with many groups of families and friends that span multiple generations gathering on picnic blankets, with grills, hors d’oeuvres, and cocktails. If it’s warm the kids run in and out of the ocean waves (actually,it’s a  bay beach), and later there are sparklers, s’mores (my favorite part), and fireworks. I’ll definitely snap some Instagram pics (follow StyleCarrot). In the meantime, here are 27 ocean wave artworks. And speaking of waves, has anyone else been noticing a lot of wave prints in wallpaper and textiles?
