Unknown title by Carolyn Blish. Water has to be one of the harder things to get right in a painting. Water in motion… even more difficult. Blish nailed it in this piece as she has done time and time again. /reblogged from denilsonxiao.
Tom Yorke by *Jajo* on Flickr. I very rarely feature art from artists that I can not track down or verify their identity but this is just too good to pass up. Jajo, as he is known on Flickr, is a bit of an enigma. I’ve dug and dug and I can’t find much information […]
Life Among Stars (piece 1) from Alexei Leonov in Russia. In addition to being the first human to do a space walk Leonov was also a fantastic watercolorist. This piece is the first of three pieces found in his book Life Among Stars which he co-wrote with Andrei Sokolov. Fortunately for all of us Larry McGlynn […]
Video: The Art of Lawrence Yang. Lawrence Yang is an artist I’ve been following for a few years. I featured his work Gathering over a year go. Until this interview I didn’t realize that he also works at one of my favorite companies; Apple, Inc. After you watch the video be sure to check out […]
Artspace: Amy Bouse in Los Angeles, California.

A Beautiful Mind by MoonyKhoa Le in Vietnam. Doesn’t your morning coffee make you feel like this? There is a lot to like about this piece. The more I stare at it the more I end up seeing. Like, how the cracked-paint-like-texture only shows through in the steam coming from the mug or how not […]
The small works by Emil Kerie in Vancouver, Canada. More color, less water, Kerie’s style is one I deeply admire. I have tried to work dry and I’ve always found it a challenge. Kerie revels in it. Each stroke seemingly placed perfectly and deliberately which results in a painting with fantastic edges, texture and a […]
