Size Too Small

This weekend we were lucky enough to have a visit from Mariah, of the lovely blog "Size Too Small"
This is one of the most beautiful blogs I have run across recently, and thought it was only fair to pass it along.

(I also peeped her Quirk shout-out - big thank you to Mariah! We hope to see you again soon!)

Jim Timberlake Paintings!!

Come Check out James Timberlake's paintings in the front of the Gallery. If you like bold graphic shapes and bright colors, then you will like his work. His work centers around emotions and his want for the viewer to feel as many emotions as possible when viewing each painting. They also have this super cool texture to them which gives them an aged look.

Bike Rack! Bike Rack!

So over the weekend I had a little chat with our friend James about a simple easy breezy bike rack. Well James the genius has delivered. A simple, or not so simple bike chain bike rack is now in use here at Quirk. Although it still needs a coat of paint we could not be more happy with this full on sculpture functioning as a bike rack.
Thanks James. You went above and beyond our wildest dreams!
