One a week..Just like one day…but less – Artist Appreciation

I did not originally start out to showcase the work of other artists, but today I have decided that once a week I will share with you some of my inspiration.

I have always been curious why a song writer writes a certain song or lyric(love to hear the background story) and so I thought you might like to know more about what makes me tick…what makes me create the art I create. Hope so.

My daughter set me a link to this man’s art via Facebook this weekend. It shows an example of that “intuitive painting” I have been posting about.

These pictures are reprinted from his Behance site and found via Stumbleupon

So inspiring! He has taken a paint smudge and made a fantastic piece of art in his journal. This is my inspiration for this lazy hazy Sunday. Enjoy your day!

Hiding Within

Intuitive Art

Over the past year I have received two paintings to work on that were just a beautifully painted background with no visible image showing, and yet an image quickly revealed itself to me in the form of a ballerina and the face of a woman. I thought it was called intuitive art, but I can’t seem to find a name for this type of phenomenon anywhere on the internet. All I know is that each time I can see the faint outline of the image clearly in the existing paint.

Do you know what it is called??

Ballerina – Beth’s Paint and Pass – Heather Gailey

hmmmm….Interesting that both the backgrounds were sent to me by Beth.
