blogstalking: heather smith jones
now that i'm ultracharged with caffeine, i need to calm down, and so i enter the quiet, peaceful world of heather smith jones. her braille-like pinhole drawings remind me of those intricate papercuts that require days of painstaking labor and thousands of separate movements, yet are so effortless on the eye when finished.
her paintings have just the right balance of color, shape and space. even heather's photographs are works of art; she can capture a universe in one simple picture. i'm no cook or gardener but she makes me want to become one. i won't, though. i'll just keep returning to her blog for my daily dose of serenity. this summer, i'm lucky enough to see her once in a while; she's just as lovely in person as her work.
