Okay before I introduce you to the magic that is this beautiful blue iris wallpaper… I want to introduce you to someone real quick.
If you’ve been following for any length of time, you may know that my wonderfully talented friend Jess has been helping me behind the scenes for years now… Including providing us with incredible hand painted desktop wallpapers month after month. She’s recently decided to step back to focus full time on her art and to say I’m excited for her would be the biggest understatement of them all. I will miss her fiercely but cannot wait to see what she does next. She was such an integral cog in the Lark & Linen machine and she will be sorely missed. But I know she’s destined for really huge things.
I’ve since asked my equally talented friend Sarah to step in and help me fill Jess’ very big shoes – a task I have no doubt she is more than equipped for. Sarah is truly a jack of all trades and I have always felt lucky to have her in my corner. She’s an incredible artist, illustrator, photographer, gardener, mother… a true creative from the depths of her soul. Our lives have intersected many times in many strange ways over the years. At one point, briefly, in high school. Then again when we attended the same university (though in different streams). And then solidified through blogland (and beyond) – honestly, seemingly as if we were meant to be in each others lives. And though we’ve now been very good friends for years, constantly bouncing ideas off of each other in various capacities, we’ve yet to work together in an official way. But it’s finally time for that to change!
Sarah will be taking over Jess’ monthly desktop wallpaper downloads… and if this month’s hand painted irises are of any indication, we’re really in for a treat. I’ve already updated my own desktop wallpaper for the month, and encourage you to grab your own (for free!) below. And if you aren’t already following Sarah, may I recommend you do so right here? I’m just feeling so grateful to be surrounded by (and supported by) such amazing women – the talent is just beyond and it’s an honour to have her work featured here.
