Photo Phriday – Watercolor by Alex Markovich

Came across this lovely image and thought it was in my dreams! I’ve been looking at a similar church in Vladimir, Russia online the last few days: The Cathedral of Assumption, for my last Agnes Kelly Book. Great work, Alex. If you’ve ever visited the Assumption cathedral, please contact me. I’d love to understand the interior a bit better for my story! Check out Alex’s website, here.

I thought this would be appropriate for a November day. I picked it up from Blake Jamison’s pinterest page. I don’t know who did the artwork, so if you do, let me know!

Photo Phriday with a C Major twist from I like to draw

By Aaron Keleny Parks

For those of you who don’t know, my son, Aaron, is an art student. He is currently in art school in New York City – the land of artist. I was looking at his latest blog post and I really enjoyed his integration of the drawing (which I like), and the lyrics (which I like), and the youtube video of the song (which I liked). It is so creative.

Way to go Aaron! (And that’s not just a mom talking.)

Just had to share this. Very cool stuff Klaus. I like the pink lady and the pumpkin skull the best. Thanks for sharing, hovercraftdoggy!

The Arcimboldo Series / by artist & photographer Klaus Enrique.      Words from the author: I had been working on a photography series in which I surround an isolated human body part with a large quantity of a certain object, when I was struck by the idea for this project. While I was photographing a human eye that was peeking out amongst hundreds of leaves, it occurred to me that I could actually utilize leaves to construct portraits or masks. I researched what other artists had created along these lines and discovered that, as usual, someone somewhere had already done something similar. In this case it was the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who made paintings with this concept in mind over 400 years ago.The Arcimboldo Series / by artist & photographer Klaus Enrique.

Photo Phriday

Thought I’d share a picture within a picture. This is my son in a studio at his art school. He is going to SVA (School of Visual Arts) in New York city. It’s a wonderful opportunity for him: wonderful school, exiting city to live in… He’s in his junior year and learning a lot. I like this picture because of the color: Aaron’s sweater matching his artwork, because of the perspective: him and his supplies with the art in the background, and because it’s my son! Of course. Nice job, Aaron!aaron at SVA, 2013
