Reincarnations as an Artist - Raghava KK

Who among us could pass up such an intriguing premise??
 
Raghava KK
 
 
With endearing honesty and vulnerability Raghava tells the colorful tale of how life experiences in turn have driven his multiple reincarnations as an artist - from cartooning to painter, media darling to social outcast, and son to father.

Body of Work for the Riverview Gallery

I have five paintings I will deliver to the Riverview Gallery in Havre de Grace Maryland for the 2014 year. I think they show well as a "Body of Work".

Alpacas

 
These creatures are so cute, I love those huge eyes.  I chose a turquoise background to compliment the burnt sienna bodies. I wish I knew how to knit, their wool must be beautiful. Learning to knit is on my bucket list.
 

I added the stars to the background. Their eyes are so large and dark, I'm sure at night they must reflect the stars.
 

Before I Die - Candy Change

Candy Chang ~  artist and urban designer whose work explores the relationship between public space, community and individuation.

 
In her New Orleans neighborhood,
artist Candy Chang turned an
abandoned house into a giant chalkboard asking a fill-in-the-blank question:
"Before I die I want to ______"

 
 
Her neighbors answers
- surprising, poignant, funny -
became an unexpected
mirror for the community.
 
 
What would your answer be?

Alpacas

 


I met some fabulous and very photogenic alpacas  at a local fair. They are just too stinkn' cute. I've  been waiting for the right moment to paint them.  They will go perfectly with the other paintings I will deliver to the Riverview Gallery later this month.
