Day 23~ Favorite Artist

This was so much fun and was over way too soon. I knew from the moment I read this weeks challenges who my pick for favorite artist would be. Now, mind you I have a whole list of inspiring artists that are out there right now, Misty Mawn of course being one of them, but for this challenge I wanted to go back further. I have loved this work of Amedeo Modiliani, ‘Portrait of a Woman in a Large Hat’ for a long time. I have often thought to replicate it as an inspiration page in my journal, but have never gotten around to it until now. I love the warm skin tones he achieved and those amazing blue eyes that aren’t really eyes at all. Graceful, long neck, and features, and the hand, I love adding a hand to my work. So representative of all women do. It seems that art is inspired by those who have gone before us and the visual images we are exposed to everyday. Look around you and be inspired.

  1. I saw a Modigliani exhibit this spring in Europe. The experience of being in a not-large room with many of his paintings was pretty strong, emotionally.

  2. I bought this bookhttp://www.amazon.com/Modigliani-Life-Jeffrey-Meyers/dp/0151011788It is fascinating because it explains the tragedy of his life and why’s. But especially interesting is the times in Paris when he and Picasso worked. Fun read.

  3. You did a wonderful job with Modigliani. I feel in love with him as other women have….I did a post and poem about him…read a great book on his life and saw the movie and the show at the LA ART Museum. Very moving painter.my posthttp://deirdradoan.blogspot.com/2008/11/modigliani-words.html

  6. Wow! this is gorgeous & your works just inspires me to try harder when I'm feeling my resolve start to fade. Thank you! BTW – your love of Pitt pens is being passed down to another "generation". My good friend had been without internet access for several weeks and just saw what I did inspired by you and now she's getting her own Pitt Pens. 😉

  7. Pam, your work is lovely and so inspiring. I signed up for your online class last week and haven’t even had a chance to get started! I need to find some time!

  8. WOW, Pam! I love the work of Modigliani and especially this one!! You captured her perfectly. I wonder why he hardly ever gave them eyes?? Great work. I am enjoying your class in visual journalism although working in collage is a challenge for me.I Love your work!
