Hello friends + happy #OnWednesdaysWeWearArt day :) I hope the first half of the week has treated you well, either way- your almost to the weekend now!
I am in a chipper mood because I am two days away from the last day of school and then post planning next week and then SUMMER VAYCAY for this teacher gal! Woot Woot! I can't wait :) So many fun things to look ahead to this summer!
And since summer is just around the corner, today I choose an artist that has many colorful illustrations that inspire me. His name is Coles Phillips. I became familiar with his work, before I knew anything about who the artist was. I could tell his work was probably 'vintage', but knew I had never seen quite anything like it before. Once I discovered who the artist was + looked him up, I fell in love with nearly everything I saw. [no lie!]
Check out my Pinterest board for Coles Phillips here and let me know if you feel the same way!
I love the way Phillips used the fade effect, letting the subjects of his paintings blend into the back ground. I also enjoy the juxtaposition of the flatness of color in the backgrounds against the realistic textures of his subjects and other details.
I knew I wanted to wear something that was one solid color and while unpacking summer clothes I came across this gem. I knew it would be perfect for this shoot. All the ladies Phillips painted always looked so classy, sophisticated and fabulous and that is exactly how I feel in this vintage number!
Do you love my new pink chair? I came across it at Ross the other day and couldn't pass it up!
