jenny morgan

the oil paintings that jenny morgan creates from brooklyn, ny, are some of the coolest works of art i've seen in the past while. she paints realistic portraits, and then adds a little something that makes her work more mysterious and unconventional: blurring a face, saturating a certain part of her subject with color. morgan injects her realism with just a touch of something more imaginary, combining modern with antiquated and tying the two together with her signature color additions.

see more of her work here! she's also done some amazing collaborations, so don't forget to look at those, too.

now, dear readers: i know it's been a long time since i've posted. i will eventually get back to more regular posting... it's just that first i have to finish feeling like i have stacks of things to get through. there has been a lot happening around here, and work has been completely energy-sapping, and the blog has taken a backseat. my sincere apologies. at some point in the near future, i will hopefully be able to do more here. in the meantime, i hope you will keep coming back to see what's next. thanks for being here!

hope you all enjoy your weekend—it's looking like museums and groceries and perhaps a visit to see the succulents in the desert room at the conservatory for me... teehee. (i love that desert room.)

happy f r i d a y !
