Speaking of beautiful colors, can we talk about these paintings for a minute? I love Michael Cina’s work (his collab with Matthew Shlian for Ghostly was gorgeous), and these watery pieces are shooting straight to the top of my wish list. Whenever warmer temperatures roll around, I feel the need to surround myself with things that remind me of water. Maybe it’s because I grew up in a beach town, but watercolors and anything that looks like water make me feel relaxed. You can check out Michael’s work in more detail right here. (via Leif)
