~ happy new year

I'm not one for New Year's Resolutions. Why set myself up for failure? However, eating healthier is something that always seems to be on my mental list, and the thought resonates louder and with more intensity about this time of year. I know the benefits associated with eating healthier would blow me away, but I still find it a constant battle. 
What better way to bring in the new year than a trip to the Farmers Market? I did just that in Winter Park, FL while visiting my folks over the holiday.


Who knew vegetables could be so beautiful and inspiring?














Oh, there were flowers too...



But I couldn't stay away from the produce!





The mosaic possibilities were obvious almost immediately as I was snapping away at the stands...

Happy New Year!
May you have the best of luck with your resolutions this year.
(More Winter Park posts coming!)

I am in awe of Jan de Vliegher, a Belgian artist featured on Belgian Pearls this September. Greet is from Belgium herself, and conducted an interview with Jan. (here) These paintings are just spectacular! I can't find a single one I don't like... See for yourself...

The following images are from Belgian Pearls post (here)







The following images are from Venice Projects (here)



The following images are from Angelika Knapper Gallery (here)
 





I'd like to find out where those plate collections are housed... the paintings are fabulous, but from the looks of the plates, I'm guessing the shop is equally awesome!
Greet also shared a fascinating video of Jan at work... I wish he spoke English! Regardless, it is magical to watch him create! (here)
Many of you are probably followers of Belgian Pearls... Greet is just darling! But I couldn't resist sharing these charming paintings for fear of anyone missing the beauty!

~ yellow

For the followers and visitors who do not celebrate Christmas, and have put up with countless Christmas themed posts this month, I am doing a bright and sunny post that in no way looks or feels like Christmas, or winter for that matter! Pinterest provides a nice alternative to cold, grey days we sometimes experience here in Omaha. Yellow was the brightest, sunniest color I could come up with, and a visit to Pinterest was all it took to get a bright and sunny disposition in a matter of minutes...









Cheers!
Mellow Yellow Mosaic Monday
