Have I ever mentioned my obsession with Sally King Benedict's work?!?! Her abstract style is fabulously vibrant and sophisticated. I mean, wouldn't you love to have a little collection of these abstract face paintings?! 

Things that inspire me: her elegant use of color (particularly pastels), her use of texture, and the simple shape compositions. It looks like the last one was completed on a beige linen surface, which inspired me to do a little research and try out a few linen canvases myself (see here). Tell me: any details inspiring you? 

 

Happy Monday! XX
