I Can See Spring from Here – More Watercolour Wonder from Marney Ward

I adore Marney Ward’s intensely beautiful watercolour flowers.  Every bit of them is perfection.  From her website:

I have always felt a deep spiritual connection with flowers. In my work, I seek to reveal not only the essence of the flowers I paint, but also my own spiritual interconnectedness with the natural world. For me, watercolour is the perfect medium, with its spontaneous flowing qualities and its clear, transparent colour. With watercolour, the light comes from within the painting, transformed by layers of pigment the way a flower transforms the light of the sun with layers of petals. I strive to infuse every painting with the tangible presence of light. Marney Ward

When I get the winter doldrums I like to visit her website and bask in the glory of her work.  You can also purchase Marney’s work from her website as well.  Link to previous post. So enjoy!

The Chinese artist Lu JianJun intriguing work continues to intrigue me.  Each beautiful and unique woman he paints tells her own story.  There is little information available about Lu JianJun beyond the fact that he was born in Hangzhou city, Zhejiang Province, China in 1960.  Also he graduated from The Graduate Institute of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in China in 1996.  All of these images were taken from these two sites: HERE and HERE.  You can see my previous post of Lu JianJun’s work HERE.

Yoshito Ishii moving work (see previous post HERE) takes small intricate pen and ink lines and creates art that appears to live and move.  I sometimes feel as if I look away and look back they might have moved to a different place on the canvas.  More of Yoshito Ishii’s work can be found on his website, on Behance, and HERE.

The Art of Cake Decorating

 

Youtube user CharlotteSomtimes has uploaded a video of a cake that is iced so that it appears to change color as it spins.  This is a very incredible technique.  In the comments section she promises to upload a video of how this is done later.  For now we have to simply marvel at this amazing cake decorating technique.
