I’m completely smitten with the spooning couples series from wonderful artist Clare Elsaesser. There’s something very real, romantic, modern, yet whimsical about them all, don’t you think? Clare doesn’t just paint lovey dovey couples either. Her Etsy shop is chock full of beautifully haunting works that often have a low key, sexy vibe to them (I’ve long been in love with the colors in the Married to the Sea painting, and am also digging these ‘undressed’ works).
As for why I included the tabby cat? Honestly, it reminds me so much of one of the three cats I grew up with (and currently the only surviving feline of the trio). His name is Sunny, and he still lives in Texas. When he gets sleepy and starts to fall asleep right where he’s sitting, this is exactly the face he makes.
And in case you’re wondering — I’m typically little spoon. But more often than not, I end up in Joe’s nook, that little place where the chest meets the shoulder. It’s just so comfy!
