String Art – Take 14

The String Art Studio – Pinterest

Deceptively simple in appearance. Colorful and lovely.

 

Wood Strings, Whimsical Things – Pinterest

I love the idea of doing monograms with string art. The circular arrow makes a nice frame, doesn’t it?

 

 

Zelf Gemaakt – Pinterest

I have no words for this one. It simply glows and the design is amazing. At least three different shades of gold…

String Art – Take 13

I’m Hanging It Up – Pinterest

The ‘steam’ coming up from the coffee makes this piece, I think.

 

Poop Emoji String Art – Pinterest

I love the pose of the cat, plus the density of the string work brings out the various parts of the body. Amazing.

 

 

Shamrock – Pinterest

This seems simple, but if you look carefully, there are four different shades of green string used. I also love the gold brad type nail heads to outline the shamrock.

String Art – Take 12

You call a painting in three parts a triptych. I guess this would be a quadratych? Anyway, I love the fact that this was broken up into 4 parts, then mounted on a shared background.

 

I love the color and action in this one.

 

 

filografi Art – pinterest

I find this one fascinating. I looked up the word, ‘filography’ and found out it means ‘thread sculpture.’ I guess this is a subgroup in the string art medium. The patterns here are mind-boggling. I love this.

Architecture Art Designs

I love having the string be the background and the negative space be the focus of the design. I don’t think this way, so I’m fascinated.

 

Custom Lettered String Art

Most people will do one thing as the piece. This creative person did a whole scene!

 

Dog String Art With Heart – Pinterest

Negative space again, with the special interest of the heart – the only part in color. I love this.

I just love the creativity in people. You give people several different colors of string, some nails, and a hammer. If you gave them to ME, I MIGHT come up with an interesting color combination, and MIGHT be able to make a simple, cartoony, MAYBE recognizable shape. Each of these people SEE something in their minds and are talented enough to recreate it on wood – in this case – but such DIFFERENT subjects, styles and color. Aren’t they amazing?

Mr. Crayola – Take 4

“Chief Red Wing – Don Marco

Mr. Crayola
Don Marco, the Master Crayola Artist

Don Marco was born in Northern Minnesota in the late 1920’s. His interest in art was evident even before starting school. As a young adult in the Army Air Corp, he began his life’s career in Air Traffic Control, which continued until his retirement from Honolulu International Airport in 1973. Much of his spare time was spent as a professional artist.
Before retirement, Don started developing a technique to create fine art, using Crayola Crayons. Shortly after retiring, he published his first print. Living in Southern California, his work was in demand, including commissions from Burt Reynolds and a one-man show at his Dinner Theater in Florida …

It’s hard to imagine these are done with crayons!

Each of us can start with the same pieces of paper, and each of us creates something different. It delights me how some creative people can think completely outside the box. Where I might try to draw something on the paper, this person creates a lovely, three-dimensional flower.

Wonderful Rock Garden

I absolutely love this. I think that if ‘I’ were doing it, though, I would put down black plastic and maybe some shot-crete on that before building my design to keep weeds from growing up between the stones. It’s gorgeous, though, isn’t it?  Thanks so much for sharing it with me, Ann.
