Art Love


Photo of a drawing I finished this morning.
Today I am in an art frenzy. I don't care about much except art right now. Making it-You name it, painting, drawing, collage, clay. I am reading about art too, Art in America and a wonderful book by Norman Mailer called "Portrait of Picasso as a Young Man". Watching DVD's about art, a series called "Art in the 21st Century", very inspiring. So, for me right now, it is art, art, and more art. On that note I would love to know your favorite painters, living and dead. Please share.
Happy Sunday.

annie, is this a zentange? Its cool. I think I have watched all the Art in the 21st century DVD's. I love them. So great to hear that you are engrossed in art, art, art. That sounds like a fun place to be. Take care, suki Picasso, Kahlo, Gwen John, PM Becker, Diebenkorn.

Suki, I had to look Zentange up in google. To me it is a drawing, but I guess it also fits the description of a zentange too. I love Picasso and kahlo too.

There's also a fabulous documentary about Picasso by French film director Clouzot, check it out...

I can't say I have a favorite artist. It's really the piece that strikes me. I am just glad you are connecting deeply with your creative spirit. I am learning to to do that, too with my writing and singing, thought i's only for me.

That is lovely Annie- I could look at it for ages and see something different each time. Beautiful! It would work well as a print on cards too.

Fav painters... Pre Raphaelites were good-I like their use of light and the way you can read the meanings, I like Caravaggio's use of curascuro but not all his work; Monet's use of colour, Rackham, ooo there's so many! Paintings I have here are by Lynn Fraser a local artist and Rima Staines.

It's good that you are throwing yourself into what is inspiring you. :-)

I think the move from the shaded background on the right to the white on the left gives it an added dimension and a feeling of movement.

love this:>)I love all kinds of artists. We have a wall full of local art that we try to buy whenever we go on vacation---and we have money. I even framed the Degas poster I schlepped all through Europe in my 20's. I'm usually drawn to landscapes, but love the richness in the portraits of Rembrandt.
