Artist Gems February 18

About Art of Others

I’ve been searching for other artist bloggers as a way to expand my thinking.

I write about these artists I’ve discovered in my blogging and artistic journey: Artist Gems. Take a look to view and enjoy their work.

Because I’m a novice artist, still learning, I learn from the work and writings of other artists, enjoying the little things that make them and their work unique. There’s a ripple effect when we appreciate and observe others at their best and as they share while they develop their work. When artists create, their work influences others: the work stirs the emotions, reflects the community and events of the day, and inspires a response, perhaps even in the viewers’ own art.

This weeks artists are unique in their art– different ways in words, wood, and media. We humans live joyfully in our creativity. These three show us many ways to be creative.

Artist Gems for February 18, 2021

Tarushi Parashar

Tarushi has posted only one post on digital art, but I hope the artist posts more. I love the simplicity and the imaginative presentation of both pieces shared. In one, a portrait caught in a moment, as if we were just chatting together while out for a walk. Then an actual walk, where the character is placed stopping in a garden or shrine. Both inspire a connection to imagine each moment. Keep up the art! It’s lovely.

I found two lovely pieces quickly — this one another simplistic style like Tarushi— with a simple but mesmerizing sketch of a girl.

And then, she added her muse, a tribute to a childhood actress, now passed. See the detail in the simplicity, and then notice her passion–stories, so be sure to check out her IG and books:

Illze is a mom, computer programmer, woodworker, and photographer. How does she find the time? She even takes her journey into art with family needs, using wood as art: Wood: Crib to Bed

I was impressed with the lovely art she created from her photography, turning a photo into a piece in which to gaze and wonder. I wonder if kitten is about ready to pull on the tulip and tip over the vase? So sweet. Ilze words reminds us

“Ups and Downs, but in dark times comes bright ideas!”

I hope you look at how she’s created “art” from her photographs. It might give you ideas!

So Take a look!

Again I’ve found those who create art with heart– artists who took the time to share both the art and story, often with the little things of life. I hope enjoy their work and learn a bit more from them, as I have. I appreciate and thank them for sharing their journey– a little ripple effect that improves the world, which is something that is much needed in these times today.

Take a look– I’m sure you’ll agree, each of these artists create with the heart first!
