Here is a lovely art form. Isn't it wonderful how diverse creativity is? Sculptures from Watch Parts - by Sue Beatrice. Thanks for the post ArtFido!
Did you know art can make your brain heathier and help you live longer? Studies show that looking at art that you really enjoy increases the blood flow to the brain by 10% - the same as looking at a loved one! I always knew art was good for us - it's even more so than I thought. Here's the complete article on: OC Designer Source Blog.
Art is such an odd mix of moments of comfort and moments of being stretched. To the artist, these dynamics seem to flash back and forth in a reality that doesn't stand still. As the artist gets more techniques under the belt, there is certainly a level of comfort. For example: it's great to know 2 specific pigments and all their mixtures so well that they feel like old friends to work worth. But the creative spirit won't rest there. There are endless colour combinations, and endless new techniques to try. So out of the comfort zone and into adventure we go again. Paint on!
