paris under snow

My friend Ines just sent me these beautiful photos of Paris in the snow. I hope she doesn't mind me posting them here! She is one of my favorite photographers, and lots of my paintings have been inspired by her images. You can see her work on her flickr page.

I think Kai and I will be visiting Paris for his upcoming show in the end of May or beginning of June!

Ooh, and in other random news (exciting for Bored to Death fans). Kai just emailed me this.

Just finished another new 8 x 10, titled "Flower Child," available here.

My mom sent me a link to this interview with the San Francisco based artist Allison Watkins earlier this week. I love the colors, textures, and everything else about these inspiring, life sized closest study embroideries.  (images from the artist's website)

studio inspiration

Things have been a bit frustrating in the studio, and aside from working on a fun commission, I'm having a hard time finishing anything. So I've been doing a lot of looking, mess making, cleaning and more mess making, and starting paintings I will probably never finish. Fingers crossed this week will be more productive.

Oh, and I started an Istagram account, (user name clareelsaesser).
