Weird, floaty, soft, crisp… all at the same glorious time! This is the work of American painter Ridley Howard. If you want to find out what inspires him, how he works, and whether or not he likes sports, there’s a great interview with him on Hyperallergic from 2016… here’s one of my favorite quotes:

“For me, the paintings become stranger when they crystallize. There is something about the combination of distance and touch that happens. The immediate payoff of a more painterly painting is seductive. I often quickly block in a painting and think, “That looks pretty good.” Then I wrestle with it for a month. In the end I like it much better, because it has become weirder in sneaky ways.”

Weird in sneaky ways. YES! Happy Monday.
