Sam Wolfe Connelly works are lovely, fantastical pieces that inspire the imagination. The bird piece is my favorite, I love the way he handles the dripping wax, and the whole idea of it, with the bird holding the burnt out match with his feet is kinda fascinating. Most of his images are created by combining both traditional painting/ drawing with digital editing, something I would like to bring into my work as well.

This women's work is absolutely lovely. The women she paints have so much emotion and intensity in their looks. The fact that she paints mainly on wood panels is something I too have been experimenting with, and might just be becoming my favorite surface to paint on. Immediate plus: FOX MASK, adorable.

Hi! Including in my blog now will be posts dedicated to certain pieces I find inspiring. Each week i will have a new image/images/video/ect.
This lovely owl piece is done by the illustrator, Jacqui Oakley, an artist i find particularly inspiring. Her intriguing use of line in this particular piece, especially the outlining around particular shapes is a technique I am just starting to delve into more in my own paintings. Although the owl subject is one that is becoming increasingly popular lately, this owl is unique in its style and its exquisite coloring! I love the circular juxtaposition behind and around the owl as well.
