God I love the work of artist Kelly Lynn Jones.  Jones creates a world of fantasy spaces, the kind of places you just want to crawl in and out of, relax in, explore.  These sparse, unpopulated settings call to mind a sort of Hopper-esque alternate universe. If I could spend even spend just a moment inside one of her paintings!  Her rough rendering on sparse white backgrounds do these settings full justice, properly lending themselves to the quiete, dreamlike feeling these habitats cultivate.  Having followed her work for some time now, I have watched Jones worlds become more involved, growing from individual spaces to entire communities.  I for one simply can’t wait to see what comes next.Kelly Lynn Jones2
