Sampler oil on paper paintings by Clare Grill, a Chicago-born, NY-based artist. I love these; how they loosen such a neat form and make the initials and symbols melt. It’s as though the stitches are freed. Her other paintings are just as intriguing. HF.

From top: the studio of textile artist Mister Finch, his beautiful moth sculptures, Horse Mobile by Hillery Sproatt, hand painted tambourine by Claire Fletcher, Mister Finch’s foxes and moths, Hillery Sproatt’s Woman and Horse mobile.
