now, where to hang it…

February 11, 2010

I just bought my first fine art print!  I have been obsessing over dkim’s prints for ages and will one day have a house full of Charley Harper.

But for now, I am the soon-to-be proud-owner of a Julie Morstad.

This is the artist that did the cover and liner note illustrations for Neko Case’s spectacular (and much cherished) album Fox Confessor Brings the Flood, and I’m pretty sure she is also responsible for the super awesome video clip for the first single from Neko’s current album, Middle Cyclone. If ever a music video was made for me it was that one: kestrels, bookcases, girls in knee high socks, a killer whale, and a beautiful siberian tiger.  I discovered today that she has also done a stunning set of ABC cards that I simply must own.  Isn’t the U for Umbrellas one delightful?

Obviously, I am a fan.  I am really excited and can’t wait for my new print to arrive.  It doesn’t even go with my room, really… but I have always loved it.  I first saw this particular illustration at tinyshowcase and have been rather obsessed with it ever since.  I do love tea, afterall… and am an expert dish stacker from way back.  I know this is only the beginning of an owning-art obsession… I am going to have to make friends with a picture framer.

Nothing else much to report.  I haven’t done much this week except go to work, come home and cook, make and enjoy sprawling all over my beautiful stripey red bed, watch Dollhouse, and hang out with Dave.  All incredibly rewarding activities, to be sure.

    That is the print, indeed. I live in a house of tea lovers… so almost want to donate it to the house!

    My sister and I have been making Charley Harper inspired tshirts… just for ourselves, of course… it’s important to always have new bird threads ready for Mondays! They are delightful. I will unveil shortly.
