Dedham Street by Paula Ogier

Have you seen the time lapse video of Boston by Julian Tryba? It is quite beautiful. I recommend watching it on full screen to fully appreciate the perspectives.

Someone I know, who like me grew up in a small Midwestern town, recently remarked about this video: “This helps explain how a small-town girl falls in love with a city.” I couldn’t agree more.

Watch it here:  Layer Time Lapse Boston by Julian Trybo

Art Deco wrapping paperAs soon as I got my Tangerine Sunday shop up and running on Spoonflower.com, I ordered three rolls of the satin finish wrapping papers with my Art Deco designs. I was excited to see how they would look, and when they arrived I was not disappointed!

The weight of the paper is perfect for gift wrapping, the feel is luxurious, and the color saturation is even better than I dreamed.

I love these and I think they’ll make beautiful holiday wraps.

The three designs in the photo to the left are (from left to right): Jade, Paris Pearl Drop, Perfumed Garden.

And here’s a close-up below (from top to bottom): Paris Pearl Drop, Jade, Perfumed Garden.

If you’d like to order some, they are here in my Tangerine Sunday shop. Just find the design you like (which you will first see as a fabric option), then click on the wrapping paper option.

Happy wrapping.

If you’re up for seeing more color and new work, take a look at what I’ve been doing. If you like poster art, I have some new poster designs.

Thanks for coming by.

DENY at home with Paula Ogier

DENY Designs, makers of all kinds of artistic home must-haves and accessories, interviewed me recently for their “DENY at Home” feature. They also created the above pretty image — an interview excerpt overlaid on my Coral Sea pattern.

The feature includes photographs from my ever evolving home, which just last week I swore I’d never paint again. This week, however, I’m suddenly contemplating a new color for the living room. That’s how it goes, folks.

Read the interview.

DENY currently prints 53 of my pattern designs or art images on a long list of home products, including the following:

Duvet covers
Shower curtains
Throw pillows (indoor and outdoor)
Tapestries
Jewelry storage
Storage boxes
Bath rugs
Woven rugs
Sheet sets
Clocks
Mirrors
Magnet boards
Wall art
Trays
Tabletop photo frames
Fleece throw blankets
Coaster sets
Pet beds
Pet bandanas, bowls and trays

Check out my designs at DENY Designs.

“Rose Cloud” is one of 30 art deco inspired patterns from my Tangerine Sunday shop. All the patterns are all available in fabrics, wallpapers, decals and wrapping paper.

If you see something that you’d like in a smaller or larger repeat, just let me know. I can alter the repeat size for you.

Cheers,

Paula

It’s official. My recently announced fabric shop, Tangerine Sunday, is now open on Spoonflower. There’s currently a collection of 30 art deco inspired designs available in the shop. I’m also building some other collections for later release.

See the whole Deco Daydreams collection here at Tangerine Sunday.

Art deco fabricIn a matter of days, my 30-design Deco Daydreams fabric collection should be available through Spoonflower in my Tangerine Sunday shop.

If you’re not familiar with Spoonflower, it offers a wide range of fabrics with original designs by artists. Spoonflower sends fabric swatches (like the sheet of my collection shown above), requiring approval from the designer before making them available for sale. I’m about to approve this collection so I can move forward with making them available for purchase.

It’s great to see the designs on fabric. I have already seen some of my designs on fabric products (such as the beautifully made throw pillows offered by DENY Designs), but I love the idea that people could use the fabrics to make anything from dresses to coats to handbags to backpacks to drapes to hot pads to upholstery and more!

The designs from this collection will be available in a wide variety of fabrics:

Basic Cotton Ultra
Basic Combed Cotton
Kona Cotton
Cotton Poplin
Cotton Voile
Cotton Silk
Organic Cotton Knit
Organic Cotton Sateen
Heavy Cotton Twill
Linen-Cotton Canvas
Eco Canvas
Silky Faille
Performance Knit
Performance Pique
Modern Jersey
Faux suede
Silk crepe de chine

Fabric prices range from $17.50 to $38 per yard. Fabrics can be ordered in test swatches (8″x 8″), fat quarters (21″x 18″) and yards (42″ width).

Spoonflower also offers the designs printed on wallpapers and gift wrap.

Making Art a PracticeCongratulations to Cat Bennett, author of the encouraging and inspiring book, “Making Art a Practice,” which has just won a gold medal from Foreword Reviews, the go-to indie book review for libraries and bookstores.

One of the main understandings nourished in me by this book is that we all have our own expression and vision within us, and we have only to engage with them to find them. One of my favorite things about the writing in this book, as well as in Cat Bennett’s previous book, “The Confident Creative,” is the soothing and matter of fact approach to opening one up to their own creative energies.

See Forward Reviews’ review.

If you haven’t been to Cat’s The Company of Artists Facebook page, I encourage you to visit. It’s a great resource for connecting with the ideas and works of artists around the world.
