SnowPorn.

There's something very interesting here;
stark, structural simplicity blended tidily with a beautiful wash of snow swept countryside. A very striking combination when done right. One must admit that there is a raw, organic comfort in spaces like these; with uncomplicated, almost spartan furnishings, the emphasis is placed on the surroundings rather than the interior. As a result, both elements are enhanced considerably. And the little stout stove? Perfection. Let the daydreams commence.

Light your fire, grab your coffee (or wine), snag your book…and cozy up to the warmth of this week's great wintry space.

Poems – Natural Strength.

Earth…what a beautiful creation.  It has lived and breathed for eons, despite the often destructive eccentricities of humankind.  Earth embodies a strength that is hard to quantify, but is easily felt.  I think that, in today’s technologically advanced world, it’s all too easy to remain cooped up and locked behind walls, both literally and figuratively.  Let’s open the doors, get out, and soak up as much of that natural strength as we can.  Peace and blessings to all.

Essential Egon.

Another fantastic piece from the incredibly talented Egon Schiele.  As always, he was able to express so much with so little.  

Enjoy!

There’s a great, organic simplicity here…autumn is profoundly represented in the solitude of the tree, and in the solemnity of the gray sky.  They play well off of one another.  Quintessential Schiele, this one.  Thanks for taking a look…Enjoy!
