Pagan Summer

May 1st is the first day of pagan summer. Reason enough to break out the outdoor chairs, no?
And get the moths out of your summer clothes.
*Su Blackwell (above) has the most gorgeous, evocative artwork I've ever seen.
And get a new tile for your collection.
You do have a tile collection, don't you?

And, if you have a little extra time (3 minutes) and don't mind breaking your heart a little, you can also discover a new favorite singer and song and video:


  1. wow! that picture with the dress is stunning! love that tile :)

  2. That Su Blackwell installation is breathtaking!

  3. I had a hard time deciding which Su Blackwell image to use, there are so many wonderful pieces on her site. She is from the UK and here is what she has to say about her work:
    Paper has been used for communication since its invention; either between humans or in an attempt to communicate with the spirit world. I employ this delicate, accessible medium and use irreversible, destructive processes to reflect on the precariousness of the world we inhabit and the fragility of our life, dreams and ambitions.

  4. That 2nd picture is *amazing*

  5. I just happened upon your blog...via One Black Bird. Your sketched tiles are lovely, very fresh! Thanks for the heads up on Su Blackwell, her work is otherworldly.


I love comments.
