lori larusso


Yes. This is exactly what I hope the next two weeks looks like! This is the decadent work {acrylic and enamel on panel} of American artist Lori Larusso. I wrote about her “shapes” series way back in 2013, but when I found these vintage treats I knew they were the perfect way to say farewell to 2015! And with that, I’m off to eat sugary treats and drink warm beverages with my little family, and I hope you’ll be doing the same… I’ll meet you right back here in January. Have a wonderful, restful, creative, cake-filled holiday ~ danielle xo

ps. So, I’ve decided to make one quick collage every day over the holidays {I’ll post some of them – good or bad – on Instagram}. I’ve never given myself a daily challenge before, and I think it’s finally time. Wanna do it too?

    I am on board with daily creation, even though we are supposed to be on vaca. My brain never stops putting things together and tracing brushmarks. I am with you! Merry Christmas and see you in IG!

    Love this idea! I don’t know if I’ll be able to do this over Xmas break, but I may do it the first two weeks of January! I love the aqua background piece of Lori’s and I feel like I need to eat dessert while making some collages now….looking forward to reading you in 2016 and your wonderful collages on IG 🙂

    I just watched your April 3rd “Humble Pie” talk on Creative Mornings. It was very interesting, and nice to put a face on your voice!
