are you on pinterest? well, if you're not... you should be.
pinterest is a great new site that allows you to make virtual 'pinboards' that allow you to categorize and save any image that you find on the internet... your favorite things, stuff you want to remember, or whatever else you choose.
i love pinterest because it allows me to save all the great art images that i find on the web. it then allows me to not only immediately share those images with my friends and students, but they can share their inspiration with me.
here are a few of the many images that i have pinned.
audrey kawasaki is one of my favorite contemporary artists. her soft attention to color & form juxtaposed with heavy black outlines, use of the wood painting surface, and creative figurative elements make her work visually arresting to me.
here are some of her new works. these are interesting because they show a definite van gogh inspiration.
