Latest Post My epic journey from Orchard to Orchard by Owen Soule

I finally opened up an Etsy store, which is something I'd been wanting to do for a while as a way to showcase some of the original artwork I have stashed away. In putting everything together and getting pics of all the various drawing, paintings, and prints, I had the chance to revisit some of my favorite places around North Carolina and the Tuscan countryside.  View the full collection at:

UNC has one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. The Davis Library is particularly interesting because of the multiple levels and big windows.

This is a former exhibit building at the N.C. Museum of Life and Science that was converted into a picnic pavilion. I loved the juxtaposition between the sharp angles of the building against the rugged pine trees.

 - ABOUT THE BLOG -
Initially conceived as a venue to document some home improvement projects, this blog has since expanded into other pursuits including anything from jewelry to art appreciation to textiles.

Art and art-making have always been an important part of my life. I believe there is therapeutic power in one’s own imagination, and it can be tapped through any kind of beautiful ‘object of meditation’. Whether in the form of music, photos, a good story, or the things only Mother Nature can take credit for, art nurtures our brains and souls. Like spirituality, art may not be necessary for survival but it definitely makes life worth living. Happy imagining!
