Sharing Thoughts On Thursday: Beautiful Souls, The Sisterhood of Art. Plus Day #5 of 30 in 30 Painting Challenge
Not too long ago, I purchased the above painting by Lisa Graham called "Sister Siblings". I did so because it is a joyous reminder that other artists out there in this cyber world have been a positive influence/inspiration for me.
Here I am, a little ole newbie late bloomer - if you will - with no art experience whatsoever, and for a little over two years now I have been dipping into the painting world and loving every minute. So far, this journey has been very rewarding. I have a long adventure ahead and can't wait to see the progress I make along the way.
You ask: "Which Artists have been an influence/inspiration for you?"
I'm glad you asked. There are so many artists out there that I have admired for a while now and the ones I'm listing below are just a few. I like to think of the 7th one in the poncho as me - sitting there enjoying and learning from all of you! (and I love ponchos, too.)
Nancy Medina, Melissa Langer of Pugnotes, Joanie Springer of Art for the Soul of It, Lynne Hoppe, Alisa Burke, Stacy of Magic Love Crow , Lisa Graham , Conny of Piaroms Art Blog and this gathering of women goes on and on and on! It is truly endless because this world is filled with so many amazing talented women and that is why I find myself adding to my blog list all the time!
I know Lisa is calling the painting "Sister Siblings". However, to me, it will always be:
"Beautiful Souls; The Sisterhood of Art".
Happy Painting! Cheers! and ... Break a Bristle.
And I almost forgot.... Here we are on - day #5 . I am participating in Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days - September 2013 Challenge.
This is a mixed media painting I just finished using the techniques that I learned while taking Diane Culhane's : Between Speech and Silence online class.
I used a couple of my Picasso books as resources for objects as inspiration to complete this scenery. I also used one of my favorite quotes from Picasso:
"Every Child is an Artist, the problem is how to remain an Artist once he grows up."
Here is a close up to view the quote. It is typewritten on a few of the leaves in the tree.
