Amy Guidry

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009


There is a great deal of impressive work to be seen on Amy Guidry’s site, but I found myself most taken with her “New Realm” series.  While each painting works on it’s own, the real strength is in the narrative they tell when viewed together.  See for yourself!

When Art and Politics Collide

Friday, March 27th, 2009


PaintBlog’s focus has never been, and never will be, politics.  However, for today and today only, PaintBlog simply can’t avoid the subject.  Don’t worry, it’s only to point out the site “Bad Paintings of Barack Obama” that was pointed out to me by the Mercer Union Hall blog.  I am genuinely impressed by the number of amateur portrait paintings Barack Obama has inspired.  

Now back to our regular programming.

Jennifer Seymour

Thursday, March 26th, 2009


The heavily layered process that Jennifer Seymour uses to create her imagery results in some incredible views of crowded downtown architecture.  

I can’t shake the feeling that I’m looking at her work through a window high up in a neighbouring high-rise, and it’s that sense of being transported to the place directly that strikes me most about her work.

Kevin Cyr

It could be argued that Kevin Cyr is a portrait artist, if creating outrageously fantastic paintings of inanimate vehicles with obvious affection and great detail can be considered portrait work.  The large image sizes available on his site are a great bonus too!

Stephanie Peek

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009


Depending on which of her canvases you are looking at Stephanie Peek is either a landscape painter leaning towards abstraction, or an abstract painter leaning towards landscape.  I’m a fan either way.

Anthony Diberardo

Monday, March 23rd, 2009


It’s inevitable for artists to be influenced by the times they live in, and we’re living in pretty interesting times (feel free to replace the word “interesting” with whatever adjective you feel is appropriate), so what kind of influence does that have?  Well, in Anthony Diberardo’s case, that influence has resulted in a new body of work entitled “God Loves You – the global economic meltdown”.  Check them out here.

Harding Meyer

I would like to direct your attention to the astonishing portrait work of Harding Meyer.  The website is in german, but if you click on an image you will be taken to more of these incredible paintings.

Hans Habeger

There is a stillness to Hans Habeger’s urban landscapes that I find incredibly appealing. Check out his work here.
