rose duggan

I'm really into these paintings and works on paper by Pittsburgh-based artist Rose Duggan, with their low-key but groovy pastel stripes. They look truly handmade, in the best possible way.

Feathers today, because hope is the thing with them, right? (Apologies, Emily Dickinson.) I don't mean to get weird; I've just spotted some feather art lately and wanted to share.

dana mcclure

I found Dana McClure through her beautiful house tour on Design Sponge. Her prints are as simple and appealing as her cozy Catskills farmhouse.

oac gallery

Melissa Mahoney

OAC Gallery is new to me, and I'm so glad I found it: In the vein of UGallery, it's an online shop that sells "curated, original work priced under $2,000." Here are some of the standout pieces.

transportation art

Tappan Collective

Recently I've been compiling transportation-themed art for a potential client, and I thought I'd show a few pieces here. I'm going for something unexpected—a skewed perspective, an extreme closeup, an unusual style—so it doesn't feel too much like a little boy's room.

Fine Art America
I love that you can find vintage NYC subway signs on eBay.

esther stewart

Today I'm liking these geometric paintings by Australian artist Esther Stewart. The autumnal/pastel palette seems to fit the weather around here: cool in the mornings, hot and sunny by afternoon.

bowerbird collective, revisited

I wrote about Bowerbird Collective a long time ago, but I just checked it out again, in search of bird-themed art (more on that soon), and it's even better than before. Featuring the artwork of two sisters-in-law, Bowerbird offers paintings and prints (and will even do custom work). As for the newest pieces, the shark-teeth paintings are just a little creepy (does anyone share my shark obsession?), and if you've been reading this blog, you know that blue wreath pretty much has my name on it.

suzanne antonelli

Today I'm loving these prints by UK artist Suzanne Antonelli. I'll let their simplicity and great colors speak for themselves.

These photos by Norwegian design team HYSJ are just pretty. I'd put them in minimal white rooms, to let their simple lines and colors stand out.
