Amy Park is an artist living and working in NY. I wasn't familiar with her work up until a few days ago, when I read about her on OEN. The "California" project is a series of famous architectural buildings in the Los Angeles area, focused on large scale watercolor paintings that investigate the history of architecture and abstraction.

URBAN JUNGLE BLOGGERS: PLANT COLOR POP

MID MOD & MORE FOR URBAN JUNGLE BLOGGERS: PLANT COLOR POP
 
MID MOD & MORE FOR URBAN JUNGLE BLOGGERS: PLANT COLOR POP
 
Some would say that growing plants is a hobby, but for me growing plants is all about life. And I cherish life. Sometimes it's easy and sometimes it's not, but it's ours and we have to make the best out of it. Things are pretty much shitty right now for us here in Greece, but you know what? People thoughout history have faced worse situations, but somehow life goes on.

I refuse to be terrorised by any person, goverment or nation. I refuse to panic and act as an idiot. There is no room here for complaints, only for thinking and acting. I value my life, therefore I choose love, family and friends. I choose happiness and sorrow. I choose books, music and inspirational work. I choose sunny days and color and plants!

So here is my little Parlor Palm (Chamaedorea elegans) photographed in front of an Ellsworth Kelly print I have on my living room. She is only 40cm tall, but with care and love, I hope she will grow into a big healthy palm!

OVERWAY-SCHIFF HOUSE

Located in the Marina neighborhood of San Francisco, the Schiff house was completed by Richard Neutra in 1938 for the German Jewish couple of William and Ilise Schiff, who were forced to leave Berlin in the early 1930s.
The present owner of the house, architect Chad Overway, bought it in 1993 and worked hard to restore it to it's original details.

MARSHA GOLEMAC

Marsha Golemac is a Melbourne based stylist, designer, paper artist and crafter, visual merchandiser (just to name a few of her many creative aspects). Her work is easy recognisable for its consistent reference to line, shape and colour and to a "less is most definitely more" approach.
