Nikolai Bogdanov-Belsky: Latgalian Girls

🙆🏻‍♀️🎨 THE HEAD SCARF IS USED ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. THIS PATTERN CAN BRING FRESHNESS TO DRAWINGS AND ILLUSTRATIONS. HERE IT ALSO BRINGS BEAUTY TO A PAINTING.

At Sunnyside - Where Truth and Beauty Meet

Latgalian Girls Listening

Latgalian Girls belongs to a series of paintings depicting the children of the territory of eastern Latvia which provided great inspiration for the artist following his permanent move to Riga in 1921. These sun-suffused canvases which captured the local peasant children in their native countryside were exhibited to great acclaim at the Riga Art museum in 1925.

Here, the two young sitters are turned away from the viewer, as if listening intently to Bogdanov-Belsky, who would entertain his models as he worked with captivating tales of the artists whom he admired.

Fashion at the ASA Art Market

📌🖌️ 🛍️ HELLO SISTERS! TODAY WE VISIT AN INTERESTING ART MARKET. AND FASHION TOO. WHY NOT? THIS IS NOT A CATWALK, BUT ARTISTS ALSO CAN BE CHARMING PEOPLE, WEARING THEIR FAVOURITE CLOTHES.

lifelessons - a blog by Judy Dykstra-Brown

This is one of the best Lakeside Art Markets I’ve been to in 21 years. The setting is charming, the art was so irresistible that I bought a painting and two pieces of jewelry even though I have not one inch of space on my walls to hang another painting and have so much jewelry that I’ve been giving it away to visiting friends and relatives.  I’ll show my new painting later once I receive it as the paint was still drying when I bought it..ha. But, the other thing I noticed was the number of ladies in absolutely smashing clothes. At times it looked like models in a fashion show wandering through the crowd. Here are just a few of my favorites.

They, themselves, were walking works of art:

Londra’da bulunan Barbican Galeri sonbahar için Rönasanstan günümüze uzanan yeni bir sergi gerçekleştiriyor.. Bu sergi:

The Vulgar: Sergi yapımcisi Judith Clark ve psikanalist Adam Philips tarafından tasarlanan sergi, moda anlayışını bu kelimenin çağrıştırdığı şeyler doğrultusunda yeniden tanımlamayı   ve de moda kavramını yeniden sorgulatmayı vaat ediyor.. Bir zamanlar kaba,kitch, pespaye diye nitelendirilen moda akımlarının zamanla moda fenomeni haline nasıl dönüştüğünü ve 18. yy. korselerinden günümüz over-size trendlerine nasıl gelindiğini ortaya çıkarmak amaçlı..

The Barbican gallery has announced a new exhibition for the autumn dedicated to vulgarity in fashion from the renaissance to the present day.

The Vulgar: Fashion Redefined was conceived by exhibition maker Judith Clark and psychoanalyst Adam Phillips. It explores how ideas of vulgarity have changed and evolved, from extreme 18th-century corsets to the modern…

Breathing Colour Informative Exhibition

👁️‍🗨️ SO TRUE, BEAUTIES. SOME BUILDINGS CAN HOUSE PIECES OF MAXIMUM CREATIVITY.

Trending Topics by Minna Takala

The name of the exhibition Breathing Colour at the Design Museum in London comes from light’s ability to make colours come to life. It has been put together by a famous Dutch textile designer Hella Jongerius. Going through the exhibition is a visual learning experience about the use of colour in industrial design.

Life Update: July

👁️ HELLO SISTERS. IT IS A PLEASURE TO PRESENT YOU THE WONDERFUL BLOG THAT ANITA HAS BEEN PREPARING FROM THE CITY OF PERTH.

Live Your Truth

Hi Crew, it’s been awhile. I have been busy! I have been very creative in other ways, besides writing. Sometimes I just don’t have the urge to write as much, but it seems to be coming back to me. I purged myself of words quite well over the last few years, writing this blog, sharing, revealing, communicating, expressing, and it has helped immensely. There are still many things I find hard to write about, for fear of judgement I guess. As much as I want to! Some things are best left to your own brain mumbles!

54c18fa881c9ae39ef1440fd9a192328 Artist: Aitch. Amazing, colourful and energetic. My kind of art!

I have been working hard on my home, making it my own space, piece by piece. I have pretty much planted every possible plant in my backyard, leaving no space unturned. I lift up more pavers every week! But I dare say I am…

I Took My Time

🎨 HI BEAUTIES, TODAY WE’VE GOT AN EXAMPLE THAT HOW A DRESS ALMOST CAN INVOLVES A WHOLE PAINTING.

Klimt 10

At last I’ve finished painting the fake Klimt “Woman In Gold, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer 1” that I started a few weeks back on an online tutorial with the painter Ed Sumner. I’ve put more into this than any of the other fakes I’ve done throughout lockdown – over 30 so far – but apparently Klimt spend 4 years on the original so I haven’t done too badly for a couple of months on and off. The original used loads of gold leaf but I had to make do with metallic acrylic paints (Liquitex) which are pretty good but a pain to photograph. I also did some of the finer line work with a gold metallic pen which looks great on the painting but is very prominent in the photo – never mind.

Ed Sumner runs the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook on Fridays – it’s free or…

NZ finds pt2

🏛️🧵INDEED, DEAR ARTISTS! SOME WORKS WITH THREADS DESERVED BEING IN MUSEUMS TOO.

Having to take time out gives me the opportunity to get inspired by the creativity around us today including the creativity that’s already come and gone. The photo above is from a collection at the local museum in Napier.

These two pieces were also here in Napier.

img_2747

This local piece was hand stencilled.

The techniques used in the past are certainly ones I’ll try to use in the future.

This dress uses a combination of laces and silk.

Lately there have been some changes in sleeve silhouettes so I thought you might want to see this dress as a historical example for a future design.

More finds soon.
