Just Came Across This

Natalie Ciccoricco takes a vintage photo and embroiders multi-coloured circles on them, matching the shades of embroidery thread perfectly. Very interesting artwork results.

A Multi-Faceted Colour Swatch by Natalie Ciccoricco

You really must take a look at her work. This is not something I’d have ever though to do myself but seeing her work I might have a try! Ciccoricco’s colour sense is amazing – the embroidery threads replicate very closely the colours found in each photo.

I thought this worth sharing!

Found Leaves by Susanna Bauer

Trim by Susanna Bauer

This would never have crossed my mind to attempt. Her found leaves are beautifully intact – that in itself is a feat. Add to that her exquisite fine crochet work and you have an amazing work of art!

Or consider these “portraits” of sliced fruit by Dennis Wojtkiewicz:

A Slice Of Lemon

This is a 48″ x 48″ oil painting – can’t you just taste the tart goodness?

The breadth of inspiration and wonderful execution amaze me.

Oh, BTW, I’m still in a cast – this week a bubblegum pink one – I had to have the purple one changed because it was seriously rubbing in a couple of locations and would have led to open sores beneath the cast had I not had it changed. This one is better – survivable if still uncomfortable – at least for now.
