Inspiration Moves Me Brightly

Thursday, June 28, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

As we all know abstract art has become quite the trend lately and I’ve enjoyed seeing all of those artists emerge over the past couple of years; so much so, that they’ve inspired me to get out my own paints and canvas’ and go crazy with color.  I’ve discovered two things:  1. These paintings are not as easy to do as they look (a lot of comments about how your children could create something similar) and 2. They’ve been adding some nice color to my space.  Abstract art is where it’s at.  Take a look at some of my paintings below and see if they inspire you to get out the paints and do a little DIY!

This last piece was done by a friend of mine, Vanessa Bogosian — which is amazingly colorful and bold and has that oh so ikat effect that we all love!

You did those? They are fantastic! Does Vanessa sell her artwork? You are both seriously talented. I have tried to do this….you either have it, or you don’t. I don’t.
