Green Velvet, Julie Blackmon
Blogging is a lot like exercising -- the less often you do it, the harder it is to get back into the swing of things.
Fortunately, today I stumbled across something that excited me enough to lace up my running shoes and head out for a blog... that something is photographer Julie Blackmon.
Thanks to the weird, circuitous world of the Internet, I discovered Julie's work via One Kings Lane's recent sale of photo editions from Hamburg Kennedy Photographs; I quickly developed a fixation on Massimo Vitali's diptychs and triptychs, which sent me in search of HK Photograph's site. They represent some amazing photographers, and as much as I go weak in the knees for paintings, there's something about a great photograph that always stops me dead in my tracks.
Enter Julie Blackmon.
Her work combines everything I love about, well, everything: Color, humor, interiors, and family.
And now, thanks to Julie, in addition to seriously coveting her photograph entitled "Green Velvet," I feel compelled to go recover something in...green velvet.
Which is your favorite?
