inspiration tuesday: adorable halloween costumes

I don't often say "I wish I had a child" (or a pet) except for halloween. I mean even the most annoying kid is cute if you stick them in a costume. here are some costumes that I think are too cute for words and are on my short list for costumes when I have kids:

adventures in cincinnati: part 2

I'm very excited to share photos from my trip to cincinnati, ohio, to visit artist charley harper's studio and well as an exhibit of his work and the federal building that is home to an exquisite mural of his work.

love this painting charley made during his years studying
at the cincinnati art academy


I adore the symmetry and color charley uses in all of his works

adventures in cincinnati: part 1

this past weekend my parents and I traveled to cincinnati to attend Harper Ever After, an exhibition of unseen and rarely seen works of artists charley and edie harper. as I mentioned in yesterday's post, charley was a dear family friend until his passing in 2007. this was my first time in cincinnati and my first time seeing charley's house and studio. it was a wonderful trip and I was very inspired by a weekend surrounded by art. over the next two days I will be sharing images from the trip. today's image will focus on the museums of cincinnati.

an amazing cobalt blue piece by chihuly

found this sign at the cincinnati art museum quite entertaining

loved the patterns in this painting

colorful art at the cincinnati contemporary museum

I would like this in a necklace, please
