Failed Reception, a sad story of a love gone wrong, 16 x 12 inch oil on canvas board by Julia Strittmatter

29-03-2017

We, artists, have many funny stories from our practice and sometimes we create unintentionally humorous paintings that we don’t always share with public. Today I would like to share one of mine (Julia Strittmatter) and maybe make somebody smile. It happened when I was taking still life painting class at art school. I had an …
Summer on the Dordogne by Steven Christian Reed

Memory Lane was never so charming before the artist Steven Christian Reed put it to canvas. Beautifully unorthodox in his approach to art, Reed captures, not just a subject onto canvas, but the impression of the hazy recollection and naive understanding of the world seen through children’s eyes. His unique adaptations for post-impressionist techniques make …
A momma and son scribble portrait by Michael Volpicelli

“A picture paints a thousand words” except for artist Michael Volpicelli, in which case, a thousand words paints a picture, and then some. He is a gifted portrait artist, but in his art, the words Volpicelli uses like other artists use colour, are intimately connected with his subject, so they speak just as much about the subject as …
Abundance, 18 x 24 inch acrylic on gesso board by Anna Roberts

To put it simply, Anna Roberts is the go-to surrealist of the 21 st century. Mind you, her art isn’t only surreal, but then, that might be all for the better, for surrealism is more difficult to understand for the average viewer, so a wise artist will create works for a broader audience as well …

OliviArt joined the Arts, Artists, Artwork community a couple of years ago. During a time of extraordinary personal challenges, she became a friend whom I leaned on. You can see her art and the softness, the shadows and mood, the longing and togetherness, the things that make us human and understanding. Not only a resourceful …

Lissa Bockrath is a contemporary artist whose luminous, expressive paintings are inspired by our changing environment. As each body of work progresses she keeps an open mind to not become constrained by any definitive image. An idea or concept may initiate the art though it does not define the resulting body of work. Here are some selections of her …

Years ago I came across Mademoiselle Zazie’s Art. Her watercolours reminded me of a past era, delicate and yet strong women, strong passions and dreams, and romance. It’s no surprise, of course, for this Parisian artist to be romantic herself. World-travelled, having lived and worked in Paris, London, New York, her art has made the …

Her work literally sizzles on the canvas at times. Other pieces, they feel absolutely soaked, one I was sure I could dive in. The biggest surprise for me was the one abstract, absolutely incredible, actually gave me one of those sexual jolts. How often does that happen, particularly at my age? Check out these Cosmic …
