How would you like to win the Winter issue of Art Doll Quarterly??!! This issue is not released to the public until November 1st but as an advertiser I receive them earlier!! Just so happens I received two of this issue and I will share my good fortune with you!!!
So, to win you MUST comment on this post and tell me what/who has influenced you most in your art or love of art
I have many contemporary favorites but 2 people jump to mind instantly. I have always loved Maxfield Parish for his use of light. The way he portrays light through clouds is so dreamy it feels magical. EVERY single time I look at the clouds I think of him and wonder how he he did it.
and Alexandra Nechita (mini master-child prodigy) for reminding me to paint for me and no one else.
I was lucky enough to see her original works in person in NYC about 10 years ago. She blends so many colors in a single piece and they are all work brilliantly. Although, I am not a big cubist fan, I am when it comes to her. I actually went into the city a 2nd time to see her works again the very next week but my train derailed when it abruptly stopped due to a sudden warning of a methane gas leak in Penn Station. Alexandra is now an adult and somewhat reclusive but her art still sells for 100's of thousands of dollars since she was 7 years old!
Winner announced by October 27th but will be anytime I can fit it in or feel like it!
