I am loving the paintings of Luella Martin, an English painter living and working in Brighton. What looks like a naive childlike perspective on the natural world is, in fact, the result of putting together many glimpses of different parts of the same landscape. As one would do on a walk. She works it all together from memory, quick sketches and a photo or two, completing the final pieces in a variety of media, from oils and acrylics to watercolour and prints.

"Every day I walk out into the world / to be dazzled, then to be reflective." (Mary Oliver)
Mary Oliver is, of course, a wonderful American poet, and it is her birthday today. She was born in Maple Heights Ohio in 1935 and went on to win both the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize
Happy birthday, Mary!

A little tip of the hat to yesterday's transport strike in Paris. Good thing I like to walk so much!
It is from the cover of VOGUE magazine (the September 1949 issue), illustration by a G. Coltellacci.
Found at Lori Langille's wonderful blog

Rain Dance (H112 x W923 cm // acrylic and oil on canvas)
I am quite taken with the paintings of Rosetta Santucci, an Australian painter. They make me think of maps crossed with growing foliage, or of larger-than-life carpets patched together with songlines. Found at Greenwood Gallery, of Melbourne.
