inspiration station

my painter friend sarah haba now has a website! and will be part of the oakland open studios in june.

lately i've also been appreciating elizabeth catlett's work.
the below images are from the book something all our own.


cartas (apparently inspired by the color purple)


woman's torso


dancing


fluted head

a lot of her work focuses on representing women, and particularly women of color. i find so many of her pieces very beautiful and moving.

and finally, some flickr inspiration:
