1. Fall is my favorite season, but these paintings by artist Samantha French are making me miss summer. French’s work is inspired by her memories of summers in Michigan. The images are sun-drenched and full of color. All I want to do is dive into a lake!
2. I don’t usually get excited about movies, but “The Loneliest Planet” looks amazing. It’s about a young couple backpacking around Georgia (the country, not the state) when their love is tested by one tiny moment. Reviews have been really positive so far, and almost all of them mention the lush shots of the European wilderness. It looks beautiful AND creepy, two things I really value in a film.
