Lupen Grainne’s Photographic Prints

by Sarah on July 30, 2014, 2 comments

Photographer Lupen Grainne captures the often overlooked details of life in her photography. I stumbled on her work two years ago in her Etsy shop and fell in love with the stripes and the sense of summer’s end in her print Fisherman’s Day Off. I enjoy it everyday included as part of our gallery wall in the living room.

I saw the print again, a larger version, in a color study Amber recently posted,

Office Do Over: Photography Art

by Sarah on February 20, 2013, 2 comments

Two+ years ago I was looking at maybe Vogue Living Australia or House & Home and I saw this framed image leaning against a window sill,

twiggy

I tore the image out and have had it in my inspiration binder. And then recently I stumbled upon the image on Pinterest and now I know that its Twiggy.

I liked the expression on the woman’s face, the sort of emptiness/boredom and lack of expression combined with the pop of the glasses and orange color. This image of Twiggy inspired me to purchase Valerie Chiang’s print which now hangs in my office. I’ve mentioned/posted about this print before but I finally put the two images together.

Eureka!

I’m thinking side by side photographs is just the right thing for over my bed.

Now I’m a bit embarrassed to show you this because I need a new everything here…but this is the spot. You’re thinking yeah that room needs something and its not just art–that’s what I’d be mumbling to my computer screen right now if I was you.

This is what got me on the right track,

I was reminded of the pair over the Ruffalo’s bed in Domino,

and then my mind quickly shifted to these prints,
