I stumbled upon an artist in the April 2013 edition named Katie O'Hagan. Her work is stunning. Breath taking. Evokes deep emotional reaction (at least from me!). Oh my God, this woman is talented! I must blog about her.
|Artist Katie O'Hagan|
|Breakneck 40 x 60|
|Tamed 28 x 38|
She has rocked my world.
I wish I could paint people realistically. I learned in art school to break down the human body, studying the way the skull is designed, arms, legs, feet, hands - but painting realistically is not my calling. However, I appreciate those who nail it, like Katie does - and it gets me excited! Yeah, sure, I wish I could paint realistically. I think about what my style might look like, and the subject matters I'd like to paint. Perhaps that will be a new chapter in my artistic life...learning to paint in a new style? After all, isn't growth about evolving, even if it means taking on new challenges that are a bit intimidating? Like - painting realistically (for me).
Have you discovered someone lately whose work is like a bag of fireworks suddenly going off in your office or studio?? I'm having a big huge firework show now over Katie O'Hagan.
Tell me you latest discovery! What is setting off fireworks for you??
Please check out Katies website: www.katieohagan.com, and look at her body of work. Stunning. I could stare at each piece for hours...and if you don't hear from me, you'll know why.
