I'm an artist that enjoys other's artwork.
I also delight over interior design.
Every once in a while I put together a style board
of artwork and products that could work together in a room.
Don't ask why. I really can't explain it.
Here are a couple of art pieces from
It's playful, energetic and a little odd.
I like it.
Sorry I don't take the time to really crop the background out of the products. This is supposed to be fun for me and
doing that would cause it to cease to be fun.
Thoughts - Do You Dream In Color?
A long time ago I heard there was a debate on whether people dreamt in color. Even if they could dream in color. I always wondered about that. I know strange to think about. Maybe it's just an artist thing.
Well I finally found out if I dream in color or just wake up thinking I did. Last night in my dream I saw the most amazing horizon. And I called to those who were with me and said, "Come look at this, I've never seen colors so beautiful!"So there you have it. I dream in colors. Do you?
Portrait or Landscape
There are 2 ways that a rectangular painting
can be turned and
it is referred to as a paintings orientation.
A paintings orientation can be either
Portrait or Landscape
Portrait is where a painting is taller (vertical)
than wider (horizontal).
Landscape is wider (vertical) than taller (horizontal).
A couple tricks to remembering which is which -
Portrait - when we look at a person we look
up and down (vertical) &
people are taller that wider
Landscape - we look side to side (horizontal) &
the horizon is vast and wide
It is not the content of the painting that determines orientation. A painting of a person reclining can have a landscape orientation and a painting of tall trees can have a portrait orientation.
an image, subject or style that is traditionally or popularly used
to represent, symbolize or associate meaning to another thing;
a visual image used to represent a religious figure;
symbolism associated with an image
Here is an example of contemporary iconography -
New York's I Love New York image.
The heart icon has long been associated with "love".
It's symbolism is recognized by most people and now needs no explanation to the meaning. An Icons beginning can be intentional or accidentally but it's the repetition that gives its meaning strength.
