Wish I'd Painted That, Vol. II

Abbey Hendrickson is an absolutely fascinating artist. I can spend hours at her flickr site. She does the most amazing multi-media work. It's graphic and intellectual, yet soft too. SNL and I agree that these are pieces we could see hanging in our homes. I had a hard time deciding which ones to feature!

Abbey is a fascinating collector too. I just had to show her collection of wooden moms. I wish I still had my Fisher-Price set from childhood! I adore collections uniformly displayed like this. Collections of all the same object, but each one unique with subtle differences. Adorable! I wouldn't be surprised to see these images show up in a piece of Abbey's work.

Here is one of my favorite of her pieces. This one is near and dear to my heart, because Abbey later added more paint to it. I feel a kinship with her, because I do the same thing. A painting will sit for a while and more paint will be added.

All I can say is, "Wish I'd painted that!" Great work, Abbey, and thanks for being an inspiration. Abbey's flickr set is here. She's a got great blog too, with a catchy title. Aesthetic Outburst.

I always say 'i wish I painted that" about other people's work! It's funny to know that other people say the same thing. Thanks for the shout out! Lovely blog btw.
