Artsy and Elaborate Origami Textiles #FridayRecommends

Friday RecommendsDo you have a boatload of money to spend? How about a rowboat full? A teacup? None? Well, if you love art, have I got a site for you!


When I first looked at Artsy, I thought, “Way no! I’m not an art collector (although I kinda am, since I have some originals by folks I know). I can’t bid or buy outright!” But Artsy is so much more than a purchase and auction site!¬†You can browse museums, shows, auctions, fairs, and galleries. You can explore the Art Genome Project. Or you can read articles. Fantastic site!


I’m doing well to fold a square — not a cube, a flat square — so origami seems like magic to me. This Russian lady folds tessellations and kusudamas, so you can just imagine how my jaw dropped when I saw her work.

Pretty Lady Dresses

Yes, MomGoth is ca-RAY-zee about pretty lady dresses. And this French Lady, Sylvie Facon, makes the most gorgeous pretty lady dresses you ever saw! If I had that boatload of money…. Can’t you just see big lumpy MomGoth in frills and furbelows? Sorry about that.

A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: Write about art and pretty dresses.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
