time stood still, yet all was blurred.





I saw these paintings by Alyssa Monks on Diana's blog and could not resist posting them here. I truly love them. Water has such a transcendental quality and is historically, evolutionarily and socially intensely important to humanity. I suppose there isn't a single organism on this earth to which water isn't intensely important. Our interaction with it is definitely a wonderful thing to see portrayed.

I can't even imagine what it must take to create these paintings. I love seeing work that blurs boundaries.

did you go to her site and see how big they are? they're GIANT!!! so, in real life, they would be completely and utterly stunning. literally. i would be physically, mentally and emotionally stunned.

eric, for an assignment, has to go somewhere "he's never been to before". of course, he had to pick somewhere far away! for his location, he wants to study the train station in toronto that was built in the 1800s. i get to go to the art museum!!
