Inspirational Friday: A Work of Art

20 Apr

I have such an appreciation for artists – although I must admit I don’t always understand items that are called “art”. But I firmly believe in “to each his own” and if looking at a bunch of scrap metal makes you happy, then more power to you!

For me, art is all about being aesthetically pleasing to the eye. I want to look at a painting or a photograph and be silenced for a moment by just taking in its beauty. Colors and flow play a huge part – choosing the right color palate could make or break my love for a painting.

I came across these paintings on Pinterest by Silso, Caroline Wright & Rai Alexandra and the use of tones and highlights could not be any more perfect.

Now what does art have to do with beauty? Everything! Inspiration is everywhere! You can take this same principle of color matching to your clothes, makeup and even your nails! Check out this Pollock inspired nail design:

Now I need to channel my inner ar-tist and recreate this fantastic nail design! Hope you have a happy & creative weekend!
