My Fashion COLLAGE

Spring Wonderland
I found the patience to create this composition on polyvore.com. This is my fashion and lifestyle contribution created from a variety of provided imagery.

Spring COLOR!

For Rosydy
I just discovered Polyvore.com, which is all about creating a fashion "look". Although I don't have the patience to create such detailed and fabulous compositions, I am glad someone else did! I love the color here!

Nice Quote

"Ask yourself what you would do even if you were
never paid. That's a clue to what you should be
doing and of course finding a way to be paid
for it. You can attract more money from love."

Eva Speer's SUBLIME work at Charles A. Hartman

Eva Speer's work at Charles A. Hartman Fine Art creates levity and grandeur using color, shape and deliciously poofy cloud formations.

If one were to peer through a lens into the cosmos, this is an awesomely gorgeous representation of what one might see.

Aside from the clouds and color, I love how she uses brightly colored elements like fireworks in "Stratagem". This directs us to the background using color as our guide. Compositionally, "Stratagem" is stronger than "Eden", but it is also much larger and uses gouache (a matte watercolor) instead of oil paint.

Hartman did depart from the norm by showing a painter instead of a photographer in his gallery this month. The results, however, are well worth it!
