If You’re Gonna Get a Tattoo… Take 3

Elegant Animalistic Tattoos by Joanna Swirskaby

Christopher Jobson on July 14, 2017 – Colossal

 

“Wrocław-based tattoo artist Joanna Swirskaby inks carefully considered depictions of animals tinged with psychedelic splashes of color. Her most common subject is the humble feline which seems to make an appearance in nearly half of her works which run the gamut from graceful to fantastically absurd.

 

You can follow more of her recent work on Instagram.”

Paintings of Children – Take 2

Artist Unknown

I want to reach out and stroke this child’s hair. Isn’t the light in this painting wonderful?

 

 

 

Selene Salvi

The girl is beautiful, and I love the pose. The texture of the clothes is amazing, too.

 

 

 

 

Donald O’Conner

I want to look for shells with this child. The dress is eye-popping and I love the texture of the sand. I can almost hear the water lapping.

Assignment: Paint a Tree

It delights me that you can give a group of people the same assignment/request/directive/challenge and you’ll come up with a different idea from each of the people in the group. It doesn’t matter if you can paint or not – each of us sees and interprets ‘tree’ in a different way.

Here are some examples –

Eucalyptus Trees – Tom Brown

Lifelike Bird Pins – Take 1

Lifelike Bird Pins Embroidered by Paulina Bartnikby

by Christopher Jobson on June 6, 2017 – Colossal

 

 

“Warsaw-based embroidery artist Paulina Bartnik stitches colorfully lifelike brooches of birds and other tiny creatures in a dense style called needle painting. Each object begins as a piece of wool which she prods with a special needle in a process called dry felting which results in a surface ideal for embroidery. She then paints with a needle directly on the felt and embroiders the finer details.”

Embroidered Hairstyles – Take 1

Hand-Sewn Hairstyles That Cascade From Embroidered Hoops by Sheena Liam

by Kate Sierzputowski on May 24, 2017, Colossal

 

Fashion model and embroidery artist Sheena Liam hand sews images of women whose hair seems to gracefully dangle from each of her 2D surfaces, Liam using black thread as a substitute for her subjects’ long locks. The works are all completed and displayed on embroidery hoops, with hair styles extending from the women in french braids, messy buns, and long ponytails. In one particular design, tiny pieces of thread are seen attached to the wall below the hoop, creating the illusion that the embroidered woman above is messily trimming her bangs.

Liam creates relatable, solitary moments within each hand sewn hoop. You can see more of her elegant designs, as well as snapshots from her travels, on her Instagram. (via Teen Vogue)

String Art – Take 17

String art is 3-dimensional by its nature, but this takes it to a whole new level. I’ve never seen string art on top of string art to add things like the cute glasses, eyes, nose and mouth, and bow tie. I love it!

 

 

pinterest.com

I can’t tell if the artist used string, wrapping it around nails like you would do if you were doing embroidery, or if the bubbles are buttons. Either way, I love the creativity.

And THIS is simply unbelievable.

Nuts and Bolts Art – Take 1

I’m thinking about trying to make some critters using nails, nuts, bolts, screws, and other small stuff. The first step is seeing what has already been created, and then seeing what spin I can put on the art, if any. I’m having a lot of fun seeing the wonderfully creative things people have created!

Stained Glass Cabin

Christopher Jobson wrote a story for Colossal about Neile Cooper’s Stained Glass Sanctuary in Mohawk, New Jersey. On almost every flat space is one of Neile’s beautiful stained glass artworks.

 

I just can’t say enough about this. She built the cabin from recycled materials, then filled every space with a piece of stained glass.

 

I’m in awe of her talent. My husband and I have made some simple stained glass pieces. These are awe-inspiring, in that they are comprised of several pieces of glass with the design continuing, like a mural.

 

Creating the pieces shows incredible talent. THEN, putting them up in the cabin simply blows my mind.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can only imagine how it all looks from the inside. I’m not sure I could ever leave.

Welded Sculptures from Found Objects

Portland-based sculptor

Mock says of his work:

“I am intrigued by the challenge of creating an entirely unique piece from an eclectic collection of discarded objects. Giving these old, common items a new and extraordinary life as one sculpture is an artistically challenging yet gratifying process. This type of work is also designed to be highly interactive and prompt viewers to question the reality of what they see. Audience reactions fuel my motivation.”
