sydney bella sparrow


Photographs of vintage thread spools… except that they’re OIL PAINTINGS!? This is the stunningly realistic work of American painter Sydney Bella Sparrow. Now, she does paint other things {flowers, fruit, found objects}, but there’s something about these rainbow-hued beauties that tug at my heart… my grandmother’s sewing box perhaps. These lovely gems, in most cases, are no bigger than 5″x5″. I cannot even imagine being able to make paint and a tiny brush do this. Gorgeous.

    […] Tack och lov finns konsten också på nätet. Om man, som jag just nu, mår bra av lite kravlöst ögongodis, så kan man förundras och vila ögonen på Sydney Bella Barrows trådrullar (här är länken). […]
