Summer’s really come to a close now, so if you find yourself yearning for those last licks of outdoor time, look no further than Danna Ray‘s ethereal illustration work. Each piece, with its washed out application of paint, is like a huge sigh. Somehow the delicate, minimalistic elements that make up each one contribute to a subliminal impression that’s actually pretty large. Each image finds a way to communicate a lot of space, and no space all at once. Such a dynamic allows you to briefly posses each as your own personal refuge. The artist’s restraint in creating these really pays off and I find myself returning to them again and again.
