Stuff I Like (5/1/11)
This tree sculpture is in the National Gallery of Art sculpture garden. Anyone know the artist’s name?
It’s a little embarrassing—by which I mean MORTIFYING—how long my poor blog has been dormant. Soooo, here’s me trying to do better… sigh….That being said, I’m hoping to transition over to http://www.paulettebeete.com in the next few months….which will feature The Home Beete postings as well as pieces from my literary life and perhaps even the crazy Facebook videos I’ve been making every night. Stay tuned…
It’s a collage town! I love the layers in these paintings by Alex Griffin. The many overlays adds depth to the canvas, and the storyteller in me can’t help but see story on top of story on top of story, which is how narrative really happens, isn’t it? They also remind me of those walls full of concert or movie posters when the posters have ripped or been shredded enough that you can see earlier visual inhabitants of the wall bleeding through.

Buy in. The wonderful Katherine Sandoz is having an art sale. A lot of the pieces have already been snatched up but it’s still worth browsing. Gorgeous! (via Black*Eiffel)
Marbles=Lost? I just read an article in Country Living (the UK version cause I’m posh!) about a craftsman who does marbling. So now I want ever single one of these beautiful notebooks from Coterie though I’d be cheating on my beloved Moleskine. Sigh…swoon…. (via Aesthetic Outburst)
Sydney=Heaven. Don’t believe me? This link is all the proof you need.
