After searching for a long time through many different blogs, I discovered one that stood out to me. This artist who lives in Buenos Aires, named Jenny, has a blog that has the most diverse portfolio of art I have ever seen. Her thread drawings of people's faces were very unique and unexpected. I have never seen thread used in place of a pen or pencil. I also loved her mixed media paintings incorporating clippings from magazines or newspapers and acrylic paint on canvases. She also displayed pictures of some jewelry she had made that I thought were beautiful and I would have worn myself. One necklace in particular was made of multiple strands of black chains of different sizes with pearls hanging off of it. The contrast of the rough looking chain against the innocent looking pearls is very appealing to me.
