I first saw this on twitter via Lori McNee and followed the link to My Modern Met to see these wonderful snow patterns from artist Simon Beck. Please read more at My Modern Met, he is fascinating.
"David Kracov, whose paintbrush is guided by the ever-changing muse of pop culture, whose clay is shaped by the witty puns of the English language, and whose designs are brought to life by his literary prowess, has left his unmistakable fingerprint on the world of modern art." I am partial to butterflies so I just love those pieces!
I have come to love and admire the works of Sally Trace and Destiny Womack. I even went as far as emailing them separately to see if I could learn their technique. Their response to that email was a good lesson in itself. Artists have their own techniques, ways of mixing mediums, unique processes, etc., that it would have been impossible for them to explain how to recreate their "look". That wouldn't be fair to them either unless they were teaching a class. So, I was left on my own. I still have no idea how they create their paintings but I do know I have found my own way, and I might add it was by a happy accident.
