I posted this painting before when I thought it was done, but I looked at it with a friend one day and he made some good points. If you look at the before photo you will see that the petals in the middle of the flower bleed together, you can’t tell where one ends and another begins unless you look closely at the brush stroks. So I mixed up a nice dark reddish purple to fix that problem, and I did feel it was a big problem. Then I sat there staring at it and it told me it was still unfinished. A thought came to me out of the blue, photographs , the subject in focus and behind it out of focus. So I played with this idea, I’m not sure how it turned out but the painting finally feels finished. So take a good look at the before and after and let me know what you think, if you want.
I have only been nominated but there is no reason why I can’t take the steps now and nominate others.
In order to claim the Kreativ Blogger Award here’s what I and the next lucky recipients need to do:
1. Thank the blogger who gave you the award and provide a link.
2. List 7 interesting things about yourself that your readers might find interesting
3. Nominate 7 other bloggers, provide links, and let them know!
Seven Interesting Things:
1. I am 25 and I still have nightmares, almost every night. But I don’t always see them the way most would, I drawl inspiration from some of them. I may not have used the ideas, but they are there ready and waiting.
2. I once wrote a poem for my creative writing class in 9th grade that scared my teacher. I wish I still had it to share, probably one of my best. At that time it had only been a few years (I can’t remember how long exactly) seance the columbine shootings. I can’t remember the exact parameters of the assignment, but I did my poem on that subject, from the shooters point of view. I have always been able to place my self in the mind of another, someone I have never meant. So as some one who had suffered the torment of my pears for years, it wasn’t all that hard. Lets just say that when I read my poem to the class not only did I get a grate response from them, but my teacher pulled me aside at the end of class to ask if I was planing to shoot up the school. That made me laugh.
3. I don’t think I am interesting at all
4. My mind never stops moving. Even during intimate times (You know what I mean) I have half a dozen things swimming around up there. Its a pain in the a$$.
5. I surprised one of my teachers in middle school one day by reading a paper on her desk upside down. I can read upside down and backwards, because I am dyslexic, but adults in my school wouldn’t test me because they didn’t believe my parents.
6. I have been through such bad experiences in my life it was thought I would end up with severe mental illness. Things that would and have damaged people to the point of drug abuse, mental illness, and even suicide. But here I am, you can say I am a little crazy but its who I am. I overcame the things that happened to me, and came out stronger on the other side. I know I am not the only one to ever do so, but its a personal triumph for me to prove the masses wrong.
7. The people I love and care about think I am more talented then I do. But I know I should think the same as them. I won more awards for art and writing when I was in school then I can remember. I paint, tattoo, sketch, write poetry, and I am working on a novel, But I know no matter how much I do I can learn more, do more, be more. So I can’t bring my self to believe.
Now for my nominations, the blogs I enjoy on a daily bases! Check them out, you may love them as much as I do!
My 7 Kreativ Blogger Award Nominees:
So there you have it, my seven. There are meny other blogs I love to read, so just because you aren’t on this list it doesn’t mean I don’t like you!
Andreea Cernestean is 24 years old Romanian Digital Artist. She love Digital Art of all forms, even though she is most expert on digital art and More specifically photo manipulations. She tries to do everything. She did works from fantasy to dark, from sci-fi to emotional, from conceptual to surreal. Beside, this way she can keep people under suspense because they’ll never know what to expect next from her.
Now the blog this work comes from is not by the artist, but a similar blog to my own. They showcase artist, but not in the same way as I do. They do artist that are well know, where as I do mostly artist that I find here on word press, unknown artist to most. This is a good blog to follow as it has very good artist, whimsical, fun, fanciful, and so on. They give detailed accounts of the artist, where they where born, when they where born, the things you would want to know about them. Now this is something I can't really do considering I search for artist and don't get the chance to talk with the artist befor posting there work. It is my way of helping other artist get noticed by everyday people.
Go and take a look at what this blog has to offer, you will enjoy it!
Look for my post later today, a rewrite of my prologue for "Helix".
Have a beautiful and art filled day, remember to look around you, beauty is everywhere.
I går surfet jeg rundt på nettet som jeg vanligvis gjør mer enn jeg sikkert burde. Jeg svippet innom Flickr-profilen min og så plutselig at bildestrømmen min hadde passert 60 000 visninger! Det er en utrolig stor milepæl, og jeg er så stolt. Det er det samme som om ca. hver fjerde bergenser har sett bildene mine! Her er en liten smak av hva som finnes på bildestrømmen min:
French photographer born in Toulouse and living in Saint Tropez Philippe Shangti dares everything with a disconcerting ease, fashion, decoration and photography of course. His work is amazingly flashy and provocative in psychedelic sets! Love the kinda trashy sense of humor, colors and exaggerations... it totally makes me laugh!
"Philippe Shangti has the favour of contemporary art collectors and of celebrities seduced by his crazy photos.
San Clemente Pier Sunset - San Clemente, CA
This was one of those days where you force yourself to go out and take pictures. I am glad I did because as usual I was pleasantly surprised. I photographed the pier from dozens of angles from about an hour before sunset to a half hour after sunset. This extra half hour of twilight is really the most spectacular time for these types of sky shots.
White Faced Capuchin Monkey - Costa Rica
Roughly 20% of Costa Rica is set aside as national parks. This is what makes the country so special. In fact, while I was traveling through Corcovado National Park in Southern Costa Rica I saw all four species (spider, howler, squirrel, and capuchin) of Costa Rican monkeys in one view. This little guy was pretty feisty and ran around the canopy tracking our every move.
