Jeremy Geddes

These paintings by artist Jeremy Geddes, who lives and works in Australia, are SO incredible I could spend hours just staring at them. I discovered Jeremy's work a while ago, and I can't believe I haven't written about him before now. While all of his work is stunning and incredibly detailed (sometimes taking several months to complete just one), his series of astronauts in peril is hands down my favorite. There is something unsettling about them. It's beautiful realism in a surreal environment. They really make you question what is going on in these scenes. How did the astronauts end up dangling from buildings in empty urban landscapes? What has happened in these deserted streets? I don't know...but I don't have a very good feeling about it.

Visit Jeremy's website to see ALL of his incredible work.

{P.S.- Even though it's not from his astronaut series, I had to include one last image (below), titled "The Cafe," which may be my favorite piece of Jeremy's. It's just too good not to include.}

Focus Fireplaces

One day, when I eventually live in the modern house of my dreams, I know where to find the modern fireplace of my dreams. These stunning fireplaces are created by a company called Focus Fireplaces, which started as an artist's studio in 1968 and has since become an international business selling over 3,500 fireplaces a year. With so many different models it's a tough choice, but I think I'm a Gyrofocus kind of guy. Now I just need to start working on making that house a reality.
