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.

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.

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?

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!

Daily Dose of Cute
When I first started this blog, I displayed a bunch of wonderful towel animal art introduced to me by my sister-in-law, Mary Lou, when she and my brother-in-law were on a cruise. I was completely blown away and delightedly shared the images. Then I found out the hard way about image limits and what happens when you delete what you think are old images, and lost the whole section.
I found some new images yesterday, again smiling like an idiot every time I find another one, so I’m going to start that section again and share them with you. :0)

I love gourd art! It seems that the sky is the limit on what one can do with them. I can’t decide if I like the brightly colored and highly varnished ones best, or the ones that combine carving and painting – giving the gourd wonderful texture – or ones that have been completely cut out and then painted. I simply drool when I see the creativity and talent that goes into these!
I can almost hear the water in this one. Amazing.
I want to sit in the middle of this sweet family and gather everyone close.
I think Donald Zolan is the premier painter of children and animals. The light in this one is glorious.

I love the glorious color in this one, plus the LIGHT. Just beautiful!
The softness of this one appeals to me. I want to reach out and pet the dog. I’ll bet his skin would be warm from sitting in the sun.

I love the color in this and the starkness of the trees versus the lush sunset and water.
This little guy just melted my heart. Great choice of subject, plus real talent in making him come to life.
I love the way this artist has gone from an almost pointillism technique for the lion’s head to a free form, glorious color watercolor!

I love the wonderful explosions of color, the soft edges of the flowers, and the background. Maybe in my next life I can learn to paint in this manner.
