[print of the week]

Thanks for bearing with me the last week, guys. I started a new job, am preparing for a giant garage sale and in doing so went through every box in my garage. (Why I still have book reports from 1997 is beyond me. I’m happy to say, those are gone for good!)

Well, thankfully I have for us a Print of the Week today. This week it’s a wonderful screenprint from Fieldguided based in Toronto. “Vu de l’extérieur” is the name of a Serge Gainsbourg album, and it can mean both “seen from the exterior” and “exterior view.”
From their website, “Anabela Carneiro and Geoff Piersol are the couple behind Fieldguided. Operating as a blog and a line of hand-made and artistic goods, Fieldguided encompasses Anabela and Geoff’s various interests in art, design, fashion, music, and literature.

    Today we have a wee hedgehog entitled “Fall Hedgehog, flowers” by Katie Vernon (aka ChipmunkCheeks on Etsy).

    In her shop you’ll find lots of lovely, whimsical creatures but I love this little hedgehog and the wonderful colors of his bouquet! The colorful little figure in his hill of whitespace would be so cute in a little girl’s room!

    Abstract Landscape 3 is a giclee print by Yangyang Pan, a native of China now living and working in Ontario, Canada. I love the texture and colors of this piece. Very fitting since today is the first day of Spring!

She then was working as an instructor in Sichuan Fine art Institute before she immigrated to Canada in 2006. Now she is living in Markham and working as a full-time artist.”

    You can get it printed in a variety of sizes, from 6.5″ x 8″ to 16″ x 20″.

    Bear and woodland Creatures, Fox, Deer, Hare, Badger is the wonderful work of Tracey Long, a freelance artist living in the countryside on the border of England and Wales. Her work is so lovely, so whimsical. (I am always in the mood for some whimsy.) Her shop on Etsy is called Chasing the Crayon and can be found here. But this print is my favorite. (I have a thing for woodland creatures. Maybe I watched too much of Nick Jr’s Little Bear well into my 20s. Who knows?)

    When making Two Houses, Erin Dollar of Pasadena, California was inspired by the ways we communicate silently with our friends and neighbors. Her art is lovely! She used to make beards too, but that got old. See her cute beard obsession on her Beardy Pinterest board.

    In honor of good ol’ Saint Valentine, we have this sweet couple today, printed by Eszter Schall of Budakeszi, Hungary. She attended Novus Art School in Budapest and now focuses on illustration and graphic design. They’re sweet, don’t you think? They perfectly show what I love about love. They’re shielding each other from the rain and content with each other in this beautiful, but semi-depressing scene.

    I hope each of you have a perfectly lovely Valentine’s Day!
