Artist Gems for April 15

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.

Perhaps you’ll find a new style, a little technique, an inspiration through the 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 abstract, bold digital art, mandalas, and photography. Every other week I’m pleasantly surprised by what I find– I hope your enjoy these picks.

Artist Gems for April 15, 2021

Get started with a delightful abstract, Evening Light. The brilliant colors shine into the lines of trees or blades of grass— I can see both in my neighborhood.

I love “My Dog Barks at Squirrels,” since we once had a dog and, really, the sidetracking, dodging, and backtracking looked just like this.

And then lovely interpretations, like this tree in snow.

This artist is “in real life” an Indian artist and software engineer, yet take a look at this Blue Agapanthus Flower Acrylic Painting–with video. And I agree with the artist— this one is blooming awesome— vibrantly captures the eye Purple Agapanthus Flower Acrylic Painting.

These mandalas are delicate and intricate– take a look.

And I love the words she suggests:

In such a chaotic world,

Let’s find peace within art.

I love when artists share their work and learning in progress, like this one by Deano of Betty Davis. I love the portrait, because those eyes are what everyone notices about that actress.

Another style is this Highland Scene, which captures the area in which he lives. Art gives us a feeling as well as the visual, and this piece is a neighborhood I’d find lovely for a walk and chat, based on this art.

And there’s the advice, like this one about always carrying a sketchbook. See how he captures the scene and the color. I should do this. How about you?

Photography also is artistic, as he shares things like textures.

YouTube: See also his video art and singing

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, in the narrative and visuals that only artists can imagine. 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!
