I see a lot of prettiness on the internet everyday — as I'm sure you do, too. It's rare that something I see stays with me all day, that I spend my hours at work daydreaming about the delicate details of a piece…

This marvelously wild screenprint was designed by Kim Krans of The Wild Unknown to help raise money for her sister and her fiance, whose old family farmhouse burned down. As Kim wrote, "Though they have each other, they have no material possessions to their name." Though I deeply love the "home is wherever I'm with you" notion, you need that where — a place to cook, a place to sit, a place to sleep. To me this drawing represents carving a home out of the wilderness of the world, making a beautiful place.

Kim also wrote that she started on this drawing immediately after hearing the terrible news. To be able to turn that desperate need to do something (anything!) into something so lovely is a gift indeed.

Home: silkscreened on heavyweight, archival paper, 19" x 25", $50, available through The Wild Unknown.
