Corine Perier

Friday, January 29th, 2010

Going through Corine Perier’s site I came to two conclusions: the natural world isn’t usually this unnatural, but it also isn’t usually this much fun. I do love starting the weekend off with some fun.


Christopher St. Leger

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

I don’t know how I managed to remain unaware of him before now, but I thank Still Dottie for clueing in me in to the work of Christopher St. Leger. His watercolours are simply stunning, and so I’m just going to sit here for a little while, stunned and admiring. Feel free to join me.


Inka Essenhigh

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

Ranging from ethereal to surreal, and covering a great deal of territory in between, Inka Essenhigh’s paintings are bold and stunning.  In my book, those are two very good things to be if you are a painting.


Belinda Del Pesco

Online College has put together a great batch of links for anyone looking to expand their online art appreciation.  Not only do they feature PaintBlog in the “Medium Specific” category, but they also led me to these great watercolours by Belinda Del Pesco.


Jared Gillett

Do yourself a favour and set some time aside today to go through Jared Gillett’s portfolio; there is a wealth of great work to be found there.


Stella Im Hultberg

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

Stella Im Hultberg’s approach to her work is varied in both medium and style, though the same mysterious dark haired woman appears quite frequently in her paintings, suggesting a narrative thread that ties these works together. The result is an impressive collection of images that is both beautiful and captivating.


Cesar Santander

Don’t let anybody tell you that art can’t be fun, and to prove my point I give you exhibit A: Cesar Santander’s fantastically rendered toy paintings.


David FeBland

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

I love moments in life when I am reminded of the transformative power of light.  Usually these moments come when I stumble around a corner to find that a familiar street is suddenly bathed in the light of the setting  sun, or I wake up and look out the window to see the neighbourhood is filled with reflected light from a blanket of new snow. This time around it is the work of David FeBland that has reminded me just how beautiful the world can be when seen in a new light.


Jenny Scobel

Culling together imagery from many sources, and blending multiple mediums together in a single work can be a dangerous practice in the wrong hands, but in Jenny Scobel’s hands the results are stunning and powerful works of art.


Julian Lee

Monday, January 18th, 2010

Julian Lee did something very nice for me this weekend; he introduced me to his work.  I am particularly interested with the way Lee layers his imagery to create surreal depictions of modern landscapes that strike me both with a sense of the familiar and the foreign, resulting in a complex balancing act that keeps me coming back for more.
