After discovering the timeless piece of art by Andrew Wyeth last week it piqued my interest in American art so now I’m reading up. I’m delving into the history of America at the moment and have been learning about petroglyphs (rock art basically) from Peru. I found a fascinating video showing the expressive art. Below is the link.
There is something about these petroglyphs that remind me of a Miro painting. Considering that this petroglyph is around 2000 years old I imagine who inspired whom. Who knows what I’ll be reading next week in art. I seem to branch off into various realms.
Yesterday I ventured out into the environment for a quick sketch of our local surrounds with another couple of dedicated artists. The Obelisk park has stunning views so a few quick sketches had me planning my Thursday. And so it happened that yesterday I whiled away the hours painting.
I’m planning more linocuts based on some of my paintings. Below I have images of the works I have chosen.
And lastly Art Bazaar Lake Macquarie was a success. With such beautiful weather how could it not be. Thanks all who came and made themselves known. And also to those who now have images of my art on their walls. Looking forward to the next one.
