Signs of Passing Time In Art

These fascinating pictures are from Vincent Levy's blogs.
I first visited his blog Caraquet 2009 with the help of the Google Translator, as Vincent is from Paris and all his blogs are in French. This particular blog is for an Art Residence that he is participating in that is in Caraquet, New Brunswick, Quebec, Canada.
The Caraquet 2009 is a symposium where ten artists are brought together to produce an art installation based on this years theme "Space Cathedral" for a public setting.
The participating visual artists are from Acadia Maritime, Quebec, Vancover and France.
Vincent Levy has worked in the field of Video and film and his primary focus has been using "time" as his subject. He takes pictures of people and uses these images to present the trace of time and memory. He does this both with digital film and video. In the Symposium his installation "Ghosts" is made up of pictures he has taken "on the spot" and displays the ceramic printed with pictures. "Each of these pictures represents a person encountered during his passage, and the Phantom installation archives the history of Acadia. These ceramics are designed to be suspended under a tree that will be installed in the exhibition".
I'm always interested in the creative process and appreciate it when artist such as Vincent let us in to the process and see "behind the scenes".
Be sure to check out these Fascinating blogs. You will be glad you did~

Inspiration and Creation In the Visual World

These two beautiful pictures are from the blog Sonalida.
This is a treasure trove of goodies to explore that is full of flowers, food, and relaxing music.
Sonalida lives in California and collects vintage tea cups and loves to visit tea rooms. Her blog was inspired by her Mother Sonia who loved to grow Roses, and her Grandmother Lida whom She will always remember her sewing and drinking Tea. Sonalidas blog has only been around since June of this year and all I can say is WOW!!!
It's like visiting a tea party in the middle of the most beautiful rose garden. It brings back memories for me of my childhood in England, where my American grandparents had a beautiful rose garden that I would play in. Then there was the rose garden at the local pub where my mom worked that I would pick roses with the little girl who lived there, and we would make "rose petal potions".
It has been such a treat to discover this delightful blog and I can't wait to visit again. Be sure to visit Sonalida, You will be glad you did~

Art from Buenos Aires, Argentina

I found these on the blog Cuenteando. And what is way cool is that I used the Google Translator and now can read the blogs in other languages. So, I know maybe everybody has been doing this already.. But I hadn't.. can you feel my excitement.
So anyway, this is from Gaby's blog Cuenteando. These two pictures are from the Patio del Hospital de Arle's. The painting is a Vincent Van Gogh . This is the hospital where he stayed after the "ear" incident. Gaby writes on her blog about the "twisted" sense of these things.

These little Voodoo guys seem to be a challenge that Gaby was given from a friend. They are
made of "felt, cloth lenci, embroidery thread and have a pin with perlite in the heart".
Check out Gaby's blog..Even use the goggle translator. You will be glad you did~

One of my favorite things about her blog is the WIP(Work in progress) pictures she has showing the process she goes through with her pieces. There is also the fun of reading the inspiration behind the paintings as well as the stories about her subjects. It's all very fun to see all the creative pieces put together.
There is nothing miniature about the incredible realism and beauty that jumps off the screen as you get lost in Melody's world of her wildlife art.

Susi Galloway Finding the Beauty in the Storm

I found Susi Galloway's blog (Susi Galloway Fine Art Illustration Design) today while checking out some of her art. I'm instantly attracted to her artwork because of my love of the beach, clouds, and sunsets. She lives in Clearwater which is the closest beach to where I live here in Plant City, Florida. This particular picture was inspired while she was in Juno which is on the East Coast of Florida which is also a beautiful place to be.

There's also the West Coast of America represented in Susi's "City of Angels" painting and many from Arizona, and other fun places which instantly transport you there. There's also whimsical paintings and portraits full of expression and incredible color.

Susi's blog is great for the fan as well as the art enthusiast. I always think its cool seeing the artists inspiration and time line of the projects they're working on. The Youtube video that is on her blog has a large sample of her art work and is fun to watch.

Give yourself a treat and check out Susi Galloway's blog you'll be glad you did.

Dreamland Girls

There are some beautiful pictures on this blog. They are all in a dreamy mode, photoshop at its best. This blog Mi Uruguasha is foreign to me, so unfortunately I can't really say any more than, check it out, you'll be glad you did.

Ms. Taylor Webb The Ancient Speaker

Ms. Taylor Webb's Thought Blog is full of original art and thought provoking descriptions of each piece of work. Ms. Webb is in the midst of naming 300 paintings as she expresses "Creativity is so fulfilling and so hard at times." As any one in the creative process knows all too well.
Each piece of art work is brought to life by Ms. Webb's detailed journey of what the painting represents. You will not only enjoy her free spirited style of Art but will enjoy her spirited context of each beautiful piece of writing.

Bringing the Art and Voice together is something I personally enjoy. I appreciated Ms. Webb's self description as a "true polymath". Thanks to Wikipedia I now know that it means "Having learned much, A person whose knowledge is not restricted to one subject area" , and through this Ms. Webb shows us how to use both sides of our brains.
I feel not only inspired by her art by educated by her writings.
