Hello! I hope this post finds you well!
I know its been a little while since I’ve shared some yummy Art to Adore but I’m here to make up for it with a delicious sampling of work from the incredibly talented and insightful Dan McCaw.
He’s kinda my new artist crush. Shh…don’t tell anyone. lol. ;)
I even tracked down his out of print book and forked over for a small fortune for it. (Worth every penny.) His words take me back to studying in art school and has brought to the forefront, knowledge and training that I had stashed away and even rebelled from. He makes me feel like a hungry student again – a feeling I yearn for.
Ok…I’ll stop gushing.
First, here is a video interview that reveals what an inspiring mind this man possesses. Enjoy..
And here are some of my favorite paintings by Dan…
Aren’t they just beautiful? So poetic in the way he suggests certain elements but leaves out others. I think there is such a beauty in allowing the viewer to fill in the blanks…it leaves room for interpretation. An openness to emotion and deep meaning. What do you think?
You can see more of his work on my shrine… ah…I mean my Pinterest board dedicated to him. ;)
I hope you enjoyed.
