Artist Inspiration: Johnny Abegg

Time to get our beach on even if
some of us are thigh high in snow.

Photographer Johnny Abegg
shot this gorgeous boho mermaid
for Spell & The Gypsy Collective,
and I’m in love with the palette,
Spell clothing, and vibe.

Know how much I wanna feel this
between my toes?

Even more than that.

Johnny Abegg

If seeing Mr. Abegg’s surfer chic shoot didn’t
buzz me enough, I came upon this bijou video
he worked on and fell into the loveliest trance:

Aint it a lovely escape?

Feeling sooooooo inspired and moved
by this artful work and wishing you
peace just where you are.

    LOVE it. How are you my sweet friend? i feel like i have been through a blogging tornado….and am hanging on by a thread:) Actually the worst is over but boy was it hairy. I was going to switch back to blogger as I totally intimidated by WP and it was sooo much more than I expected but now i am trying to adjust and decided to give it some time before I act in haste….finally getting my blog roll squared away (hopefully today)! Hope you are well! This photo sesh is INSANE!
