Windows.

I've been dreaming of travel lately, and artist Jim Darling's paintings of the views outside airplane windows are only fueling the wanderlust. (My favorite's the one of the city at night.)





See more at Jim Darling's website, here. In other news, I hope you're all having a lovely start to the week. I'm still recovering after three very late nights in a row - yesterday, I capped off a falafel-filled evening with a showing of Django Unchained. Have any of you seen it yet? Thoughts?

Christa, that would be lovely!

I love the night one best too. That's my favorite part about flying-getting to look at the city below at night. So peaceful.

Agreed re: nightscape being the favorite. It feels much more mysterious.

Haven't seen Django - it looks a little unsettling, but then again, so do all Tarantino movies. What'd you think?

Shoko said...

Molly, it was so intense! And yes, unsettlingly violent. Still, I was very entertained... :)

Neat. I could go for some good falafel. It's so hard to find decent Israeli food in Vegas.

Paintings! What a great idea.

I want to see Django Unchained; it's so controversial, so I'd like to see what I think of it as a little, white Midwestern girl, haha. And falafel = yummmm.

I love these! People are so creative!! How was Django!? Les Mis is first on my list but my husband is dying to see Django.

Shoko said...

A&B, I liked it! Not normally the type of movie I'd choose, but it had my attention the entire time.

Shoko, the one of the city at night looks so real! WOW - I admire artists with such skill, and my wanderlust is definitely fueled! Oh, how I'd love some warmth and a few palm trees too!

I haven't seen Django Unchained yet, but do want to see it soon.

These are beautiful! Would love to have one next to my no-nice-view bedroom window. I like this one with the city at night too, gorgeous! Btw, happy new year, Shoko. I've been taken some time off :)
