All of these lovely paintings are by a German born American artist Wolf Kahn. You can read more in this wonderful book . One of the great advantages of working in a university library....







I blogged about this artist several months ago because he is one of my favorites, and I am absolutely arrested by his paintings. As you know if you read this blog, I am also a HUGE fan of the work of Emily Mason, who, incidentally, was his wife. Imagine the work that took place in their house.

These are amazing... I must find out more about him. I could just see this sort of painting on fabric...

Jenny, thanks for visiting me over at my blog! I got the skull fabric at a local store, but have seen it on www.equilter.com. Their search feature is pretty sophisticated, and "skulll" should work just fine...

I love your pieces, by the way. Your colors are just great!

Wolf Kahn is my favorite living artist! I have all of his books, his calendar for this year and I just drool over his stuff. Love the color combinations, his texture, etc.
