I just sold this beautiful painting to someone with an even more beautiful soul. This makes my day and fills my heart with so much happiness. <3
I believe social media apps follow the same pattern that art does. Where we go from classic to decadent as a pattern. Once an art movement becomes romantic ,concerned with nature and feelings, it immediately falls into decadence. This pattern exists in apps. From the Instagram photos of landscapes to Facebook's emoticon expansions of likes buttons. It is western tradition.
I just finished this painting of one of my favorite musicians. Selena. Once I started this painting I couldn't stop. I didn't take any process videos of photos because I was more obsessed with painting te painting than the documentation. In person the diamonds and jewelry sparkle because of holographic adhesive. It is sooooo beautiful to look at. So beautiful it should be forbidden. Like a forbidden love. An amor prohibido.
What facinates me about art is beauty. I love beauty. I love looking at something very beautiful and feel wowed by it. It's the closest I have ever come to a religious experience. There's nothing that'll stop you in your tracks like a beautiful women or man. A beautiful flower or building. I like to take photos of objects, people and places I find beautiful.
We live in a world of such ugliness. I think focusing on beauty is a great thing.
