Blue Day Flowers and Green Day Flowers – Micko Con Carne (mmh)

  
I am greedy today, posting two more of my own. I am very happy that I see in wacky colors. Additionally, since I know nothing of actual real plants and flowers, I get away with painting ones from “Fluorescent Land”. 

Today was extra special as my father sat beside me as I painted (his reward for being my painting buddy was that he got to sign it with me). What was funny was that he asked me “what type of flower has magenta petals and orange dots”, of course I replied “this one”. (Yes, I was a snarky a-hole).

Setting Sun #1.  – MickoConCarne Art

  

So, I am cheating today, I am highlighting myself.  My own painting, named Setting Sun #1, had siblings, but they have all been placed on a funeral pyre.  What can I say – I am brutal on myself.  

I not sure how to define my work style, or even if that is important.  I guess I would say I have my own, … which is inspired my Peter Max, Van Gogh, Versace, and any 2nd grade finger painter. 

I paint to have fun.  I paint to learn and explore what I can do. I paint to express myself when my words can’t find a way out of my mouth.

Highlighted Artist – Susan Marx

  

I found Susan Marx, I suspect, as many others did in the December ArtNews magazine feature. I was immediately jealous of her choice and use of colors.  An amazing bomb exploding in front of me that made sense.  Boom – take that you blank page. 

I find her own definition of her style as an “Abstract Impressionist” as a perfect fit. She loves colors (that is clear) and is able to convey a soothing organic pattern in the chaos.

Highlighted Artist – Joshua Been

   
Art that depicts North Americas western landscape has never been at a shortage. Fortunately we have many places to draw inspiration and fantastic artists such as Joshua Been to paint them. Born not so long ago, in 1974, and drawing not long thereafter, he has honed his craft to the beautiful work of today.  
I find his color use to be his finest skill. The chosen palate allows me to feel the cool air and light scents of the region. In many of his works, you can feel the morning mist as much as see it.
