HI SISTERS! TODAY WE’VE GOT A BAROQUE GARMENTS SHOW, DESIGNED BY AN SCULPTURE ARTIST. ENJOY!
Ok… I saw this awesome post on my Facebook wall the other day and thought it was absolutely amazingly macabre.
I’m taking a slight detour from films today and flipping over to fashion and costume couture. As a former costume designer and an advocate of all things strange and unusual, passing on this Facebook gem would be a mistake.
I mean, look at this. I’d get married in this.
So, the man behind this is Liam Brandon Murray, a UK sculptor and artist that crafts baroque-like garments formulated from deeply layered urban elements and fabrics creating an overwhelming wearable artwork.
You can even dare put this in a washing machine.
There’s so much thought put into each garment, an almost microscopical attention to every detail, stitch, and finish that make each piece one of a kind. It’s not unnoticeable that Liam often incorporates religious elements and iconography into his designs…

HI BEAUTIES! AS IF THE SKETCH GIRL LOOKS AT HERSELF TO WALK ON SUNDAY. HAVE A NICE DAY!
HI BEAUTIES! HAVE A NICE DAY FULL OF FLOWERS AND SKETCHES. X
I like to pick a few wildflowers when I’m at the lake so that I can study and paint them in watercolor.
I found Common Tansy and Common Yarrow wildflowers yesterday at the lake. They may be common in name but not common for me to paint!
I tried to paint them loosely and then added a few details with a BROWN micron pen to change things up a little.
I struggled with painting the Birch bark so I realize it looks a bit strange. 😉
Here is a photo of what I was trying to paint:
I like the burst of red from the cherry, how about you? I thought it was a good way to end #World Watercolor Month as today is the last day to celebrate – thanks Charlie at doodlewash.com for making it such a fun month!
HI BEAUTIES! ONLY AN ARMCHAIR CAN BE A GOOD REASON TO DESIGN WONDERFUL FABRICS. XX
At first it was curiosity and wondering about a word. Then mental machinations and mindless wanderings took the high road and soon profound curiosity became a fever-pitched research obsession.
It was all about a word, and the word was G-R-E-A-T-N-E-S-S.
A good word GREATNESS. A great word.
Greatness (n.): from the adjective GREAT to describe: A great distance; a great while; a great achievement. Or, used as an adverb to modify an adjective: One of the greats; greatly missed; you are great, I am great, we are all great.
And that’s the question: greatness? Huh?
I’m waiting for the TEDWeWantYouToTalk people to call me because I think I’m on to something. Something great…
Hans Eysenck’s book, Genius: The Natural History of Creativity (‘95) points out that a personality trait called “…psychoticism…chief among those [whose] cognitive features is a tendency to over-inclusiveness, i.e., an inclination not to limit…

HI BEAUTIES ! AS YOU CAN SEE IN A SIMPLE PAPER, YOU CAN GET THE UNIVERSE. HAVE A NICE DAY!
No matter what medium you use to paint cosmic scenes – be it oils or watercolours in my case – they are full of inimitable expressiveness. Van Gogh painted his mythical night sky, Starry Night, using oils so thick it made the painting feel tactile. It’s as if Van Gogh was inviting you to touch that bright moon in a way you can’t in life. In watercolours, I find, the night sky feels more fluid. As if you can swim in the unreachable depths of space. As if the night sky is a free-flowing seascape. I don’t know what to choose, so I keep alternating between the two. Happily, may I add.
Swan Nebula, Watercolours
