Autumn Inspiration - Philippa Robbins....

Clogs on a cushion cover Karvol Capsules

Okay m'dears..get set for a week of simple inspiration! I will be posting things I have found on my travels in the last wee while that have stirred my soul and blown my mind!!...when I said linky goodness, I meant it ;)

Today, the amazing artist Philippa Robbins whom I found a few weeks ago via her flickr photo-store. I was firstly moved by her wonderful paintings of knitting....the detail and quality of the work is just sublime..by the time I found the images of her tablet works I was hooked { I am especially enamored with the image above of Karvol capsules which were my best fried as a child when I had a cold!!}...and then I was love struck with the painting {top} of the clogs. *wow*. It is the quality of image in Philippa's work I really admire, the technical brilliance of her observational painting..her style. I would love to live with some of these, to own one....{maybe one day!}

To find out more about Philippa's beautiful work check out her lovely website...:)

couple of things: i still want to order, but i'm going to wait until i return to england in two weeks. sorry i've been so wretched and noncommunicative!
two, KARVOL = nectar of the gods for sure! had a cold during exams my first year, which meant i was panicked by both the cold and exams. we don't really have karvol here, but a tutor told me to get some. upon using it, i became addicted. i'm bringing loads back with me at christmas and handing it out like candy. :D
trois, i love it when you post! three cheers for autumn.

Great pics but did you know she paints over photos? Kinda feels like cheating to me!
