Artist: Violise Lunn

I am so fascinated by paper art.
I love it when an artist can transcend the expected and emerge into the unexpected.

"Allowing herself to divide her time between these two artforms, the usable and the useless, Violise Lunn lets them feed each other with inspiration. Their origin is the same – to permit dreaminess and the search for perfection."

Artist Violise Lunn from Denmark does just that.

Cordon bleu was what I ordered on my first date with my husband 26 years ago.

The next one is going to be difficult. I'm just not a purple person.
OK, deep rich purple I'm ok with...it's the soft lavender stuff that you will NEVER see in my house or on my body!
I wonder what that means about my personality?
It's going to be interesting to see what I have in my flickr fav folder.
Until then, enjoy these blues and go see the artists that created them.

What is Yellow?

Yellow is the color of the sun
The feeling of fun
The yolk of an egg
A duck's bill
A canary bird
And a daffodil.

I'm just now realizing where this obsession to these color collages is coming from.
My favorite book as a child was
Hailstones and Halibut Bones by Mary O'Neill
How fun it would be to illustrate this book.
I think I will add that into my 100 dreams list.
