Poetic Plaster & Wax with website

Here’s a little backstory… ;)

I’ve always been enamored with words. When I was a teenager, I used to have poetry wars with my Dad and my journal is full of them! He would write one, then me and so on. We each had to take a line or a theme from the poem before. It was great fun and I discovered how incredible it can be to connect poetry to images. I often created art from my poems or vice versa!

Art and Poetry are a heavenly match. Words and colors. Stanzas and brushstrokes. Verses and imagery. A beautiful relationship that blends seamlessly with the atmospheric wax and plaster work that Petra and I love to do!

 

I invite you to come learn more about this very special class. Click below to read all about the gorgeous projects! Learn to combine your love of words into stunning and soulful artwork!

Art to Adore – Dan McCaw

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.
