You won’t find too many standard rainbows on this blog, simply because I gravitate toward the darker side of art. But the recent US Supreme Court decision for nationwide marriage equality warrants a special celebration.
Julie Seabrook Ream, a dedicated mother and artist who could never pick a favorite color, has endeavored to make a rainbow collage every day for 100 days.
Soapbox side note:
While I’m ashamed to live in a world where race, gender, sexual orientation (or other arbitrary factors determined by the dominant power structure) has any bearing on an individual’s rights or happiness, I’m heartened to see that human beings are evolving enough to begin dissolving our self-created boundaries. Congratulations to the LGBTQ community on an embarrassingly long overdue victory!
In honor of Father’s Day, I present this collection of pregnant seahorses (as some of you may know, the male seahorse carries the babies).

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
I love Caitlin McCormack’s crocheted creatures!
Some appear to me made from vintage doilies. Such an unlikely craft material for this subject matter, and I think it works.
