Aren't these unique? The images spoke to me, so I had to share. These are the works of Anni Leppala. Faceless women inhabit her world and haunt me, taunting me with wanting to see more, yet taken with that frozen moment, forever etching itself into my memory. Simple images, yet they seem to have so much to say, loaded with meaning and mystery. 

More Houses

An interesting post by Danielle of The Jealous Curator, one of my favorite blogs for perusing modern day fine art.

I’ll be honest, American artist Amy Casey has me a little worried. Does she know something we don’t!? She’s been having a recurring dream for the past eight years about the world coming to an end… which has obviously influenced her work. The paintings above are in chronological order from 2006 ~ 2010. Are you picking up on a theme? I have to say though, it does make me feel a bit better to see that the 2010 painting includes a safety net. That’s gotta be a good sign… right?! cited from.

If you don't know this about me, you will today: I love illustrations of houses. I don't know why, but I love the detail and the care and the compartmentalized insides and the lines and tree lined driveways and yes, I know I'm rambling. I saw these and decided to link them to this amazing artist. Enjoy:)
