What is it about spots? There's something so appealing about them. Spots, speckles, dots..... and circles. Guinea fowl feathers immediately come to mind. Finding a guinea fowl feather even if I've found several in one day somehow feels lucky. It must be the spots!
Light of the moon by Judy Martin
When I discovered this painting on Judy's blog I felt the same way I feel when finding Guinea Fowl feathers. Lucky and uplifted.
Omo, Ethiopia by photographer Hans Silvester
I love Hans Silvester's photo series of the Omo tribe in Ethiopia. I have one of his books on my coffee table. It is fascinating .... and filled with spotty, dotty body painting. See more here.
Mobile Table(1) by Laura Howard
Laura Howard's felt art is as bright and cheerful as this photograph of her work table. See here at Lupin Handmade. I love this photograph! It would make a wonderful painting.
"Lupin Handmade is run by me, Laura "Lupin" Howard. I'm a not-quite-grown-up girl living in England who likes to make stuff. I drink a lot of tea, am partial to a nice bit of cake and am completely obsessed with felt."
