I Could Live Here

I almost wanted to crawl back into bed once I spotted this cozy, inspired living quarters of artist Dan Funderburgh of Brooklyn, New York. I felt instantly comfortable when browsing through photos of his pad. He has such a wide variety of tastes that he integrates into his home decor. Notice the abundance of books present in every single photograph. I thought to myself, how many books does he own?! and, is this heaven? Having lived with a few artist-types myself I’ve shared space with both the extremely neat and tidy Interior Designer as well as a more cluttered and disheveled illustrator, but this space looks like a happy medium. I especially like how he uses the colander to hold knick-knacks. Images are courtesy of Design*Sponge and Dan Funderburgh. Check him out. He has some neat pattern-based artwork.

Jasmine Star pendant

This is a photograph of a pendant art piece and the packaging by Jasmine Star. I bought it on Alberta St. back in October during the Day of the Dead art walk celebration. I prefer to wear works of art whenever possible – such as shirts and jewelery. This one has become one of my most prized possessions since, and I look forward to buying more of this artist’s work. On the back of the pendant it has her signature and the year written in white acrylic.

Jasmine Star paints mostly trees in acrylic with beautiful colorful skies, and each piece communicates a different emotion by the colors shechooses to use or the direction, weight, or movement of the branches. She is such a sweet, awesome individual and she puts a lot of thought and care into her work. As part of her collection she has necklaces, earrings, prints, original works, greeting cards, and specially designed gift boxes and cards to hold the necklace, and specially designed bags to put it all in. She even paints original works, just as detailed as her larger paintings, on canvases that are no bigger than your thumb! She sells necklaces, prints, original works, specially designed gift boxes and cards to hold the necklace, and specially designed bags to put it all in.  I believe I spent ten dollars on my beautiful necklace but felt like I walked away with 4 pieces of art, of course I saved it all (even the bag).

To check out her work, you can go a couple of different places. Her website, jasminestar.net is up and running but is under construction in quite a few places,but the gallery works! You can also see many of her pieces here at EbsqArt.com.
