Art showcase 3e edition

Describing paintings

by Jay Zuck, ornaments by Ann Storer, drawings by Ainara Del Valle and crafts by Belle.

The first entry for this months Art showcase

is from Jay Zuck’s blog “Sketch of the day”.
He submitted this beautiful impression of someone At the Precipice.
Looking at the rest of his work I found this funny looking Automaton.

I am a little late writing

this month Art Showcase. Usually I do it on Sunday, hence the Sunday morning deadline. But because of the holidays I have a little more time then usual, so I decide to write it on Monday.
As a result I can add an entry that actually came in to late for this edition. But this artist makes art in a way that completely new for me. So I wanted to include it.
Ann Storer uses vector graphics to make beautiful icons and ornaments.
Looking back through her older work I came across a beautiful fiery rendering of an eye.

It’s been said that the job of art

is not to be liked but to get people thinking. I don’t know whether that’s true in general but it is surely true in this next entry.
Looking over the drawings of Ainara Del Valle I must say that I don’t like them. But they do make you think. Some of her drawings have a very clear message. With other I don’t see it.
Looking over the rest of her work I found some advice as to how we should deal with nature.

This next blog isn’t so much an art blog

as it is an crafts blog. But I did enjoy reading it so I will include it in this months Art showcase.
Belle submitted a small article about hair pins that I didn’t like. But looking over the rest of her blog I found one of the strangest recipes I’ve ever seen. I didn’t even know it was possible to make Homemade Laudry Soap.
NB This blog has some problems with the Firefox browser.

Reprise

Andrew Amelinckx submitted

an other article. This time he uses his beautiful language to describe the Hudson River School of painting.
