Tumblr is a wonderful place to get lost. I found my head in the clouds quite literally when I discovered Eric Cahan's Sky Series. At first glance his photos appeared to be simple gradients until I noticed a hint of cloud. Surprise! Using graduated filters traditionally used in film, Eric's photos illustrate memories and colours moving into the abstract. It's oh so Rothko. No wonder I love them.

OH DEER ME
I love it when you're on Etsy and you find something a-a-amazing like these hand painted deer antlers by Cassandra Smith. After spending a few weeks in the boonies, I suppose all this wilderness business is rubbing off on me. Soon I'll be building a log cabin in my living room and wearing pelts. But before I spiral into the dark forest, I take a few of these beautiful painted antlers thank you.
There isn't a city in sight. I'm deep in the woods perched on a calm winter's ocean. It smells like a mix of pine cones, salt air and dried blackberries. I've seen more deer than people and I have the sudden urge to wear a lumberjack shirt and carve a walking stick out of driftwood. I feel like i could wrestle a bear or build a log cabin. I'll settle on the latter. I really am in the west. Happy 2012. May your heart stay wild.
