Take a Closer Look…

March 23, 2009

at the work of Victoria Bennett Beyer.

I’ve been meaning to write this post ever since I got my hands on Vickie’s fabulous Glass Diamonds print.  That print had stared at me for months…something, which on the surface seems so simple,  but upon a closer take reveals so many little intricate details, that’s what Vickie’s world is all about.  She captures the things we would overlook, and gives a new perspective to them.

I’m still hunting the perfect spot…but I couldn’t resist this subtly detailed frame when I saw it…perfect!

Victoria has two etsy shops, one a Mother-Daughter shop she shares with her equally artistic Mom, Milemarker.etsy.com, and she just launched a store exclusively for her paintings, Milemarker2. Oh and if you want the very latest on Vickie’s work…check out her blog…which is conveniently located on my Friends list (right hand column of this blog).

To sum things up, I am called back to a quote by the late great Georiga O’keeffe —“Nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small it takes time – we haven’t time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time”
Today, I will take time.  (thanks for the reminder Vickie.)

Had an all around great weekend…on Saturday, I finally had a chance to check out the Starland Farmer’s Market, and meet Robin Lynne, who happened to have a nice selection of work there.  I purchased my first ever ACEO’s from her, and I love them love them love them!  I can’t wait to get them matted and framed…

I also had a few minutes to work on the Pirate’s House mural…

Lastly, I woke up this morning to an etsy convo from Ms. Milemarker herself…she noticed that someone else used Lee Lee’s Sweet Tea in a Treasury, and was so kind as to make me aware of it…so far as I know, this is only my second treasury on etsy…be sure to check it out!

and now it’s time to get the heck out of here, and go paint!  Hope you all have a lovely Monday, and thanks for reading 🙂
