Canvas-ing the Scene


As I type this, I’m trapped in a maze of scribbled-on papers, flashcards, textbooks galore. Literally. Like, I was going to do this at my desk, but I can’t figure out the best route for getting off my bed. So I’m sitting here instead, very comfy but slouching like there’s no tomorrow. (And if you believe what people say about slouching over your computer for hours, there might not be. Just saying.)

Where-am-I update aside, today I’m bringing yet another round of visual inspiration. I stumbled across Portland-based artist Lisa Golightly earlier this week via SF Girl by Bay, and am already obsessed with her work. According to her bio, Lisa finds inspiration in how “snapshots shape, influence, change and even create memory”, and I can totally see that in her vivid, almost dizzying paintings. Her pieces reject the orchestrated nature one often associates with paintings, instead capturing an intense fleetingness that I, for one, could stare at for hours.
