Something to adorn our blank wall
I found these charming prints on Etsy the other day and they just arrived all the way from Auckland, New Zealand. They were illustrated by printmaker Bernadette Sipkes aka Sugarloop and printed in editions of 100. She uses medium textured archival quality paper to create the woodblock printing effect and I absolutely love the little, pebbly shapes.
I am going to add these two prints along with some others to create a kind of cluster effect of artwork on the wall above our entertainment center. Right now it is just a huge, blank space staring back at us pleading for some personality. Once I get these guys in frames and hang them up, I'll post the before and afters.
I used to sit in the cube behind you. Then I didn't. And then we fell in love.
