I’ve been a fan of Josh Keyes for a couple years now. I love his segmented scenes of nature and the clash of nature and the human world that he paints. Also his use of white space is wonderful. He doesn’t overcrowd his canvas just because there’s space there. He lets it breathe. Great stuff. I’d love to own a piece of his. If you check out his site, you can also see a great evolution of his personal style from his earliest work until today’s. Check it out here.

Today is Earth Day, the one day a year elementary school kids are made to show their “green-ness” through poster competitions. You can show your support for Mother Earth in whatever way you please now that you’ve surpassed a 4th grade education. Maybe ride a bike, sing with the birds, or actually throw something in your recycling bin? To help get you in the mood, I’ve put together a little playlist of bands/songs who’s titles at least are directly inspired by all things natural. And if you’re interested in making every day Earth Day, Mr. Father Earth himself, Robert Redford, tells you how… Making Every Day Earth Day (Huffington Post)
