Inspiration - Sophie Blackall & Geninne D Zlatkis

I love looking at other people's work and many an idle hour can be spent browsing the Etsy marketplace. Two really interesting artists I've happened upon recently are Geninne D. Zlatkis and Sophie Blackall. The latter has an Etsy shop dedicated to a project called 'Missed Connections' which "is an ongoing series of paintings based on real, anonymous messages posted online by lovelorn strangers". What an interesting concept! Here's one:

She's also an Australian artist living and working in New York. Lucky duck.

Geninne D Zlatkis is based in Mexico and does gorgeous nature-inspired works. She seems to mainly work with watercolour and her birds, in particular, are beautiful.

If you click on the above images you will be directed to these artists' Etsy shops! I'm so tempted to make a purchase...
