Art Link - Karla Gerard

I love the work of all the artists I follow, and every morning have a look through to see what wonderful new things they have created.

There is an artist at the moment who I am just crazy about. Her use of colour and form. (I have put a bid on one of her paintings but shipping is so expensive I am not sure how high I will be able to bid.)

Have a look though. You might like her work too. :-)

The Texture Series

Very VERY hard to get a photo of them. They are in the kitchen with pretty poor light. Actually, I might try flash - which will probably look crap because of how glossy they are.

They are a dark series. Colour emerging from the deep dark depths. I am happy with them though. And feel I got them out of my system. :-)

I don't write here about my personal life as this is a public blog. However, the artwork I am immersed in at the moment needs, I feel, some explaining.

Someone very close to me has been affected by a mental illness and my life pretty much revolves around the care of that person.

As art is such therapy for me, I am finding some sanity in immersing myself in colour, texture, feel.

This piece is called Deeper. While it doesn't make me happy to look at, it touches a place in me and therefore is exactly what I set out to achieve.

I am working on several more in the "series" and find myself excited to be exploring something new, and to be just letting myself go into the emotion of the artwork.

It's only a small piece, 9 x 12 inches. It is hard to photograph due to the texture and gloss so I don't feel the image is a good representation. However, you get the idea. :-)

Pretty Print Giveaway - 19 followers now! :-)

Joining in the giveaway fun. :-)

Hello there!

Well I am now up to 18 followers, which is pretty exciting to me. So I have decided that as soon as I have 20 followers, I will be giving away one of my prints.

The prints I have available are on my etsy site.

All you need to do is comment here, and once I have my 20 followers, I will do the old fashioned thing of drawing a name out of a hat. If you win, you can then choose your favourite print and I'll whip it straight into the mail for you.

Sounds good? Spread the word. And good luck. :-)
