Fascination Friday

Generally, I spend about half of my time fascinated with something!  It could be buttons, scarves, the art of a person who paints the things that I love to paint (like pretty girls....or ugly girls!).  Anything!  Pinterest is a great place to post your fascinations.  It's a bit tricky to figure out but it's pretty cool once you do!

I have decided to start what I call "Fascination Friday" to let you know what fascinated me this week.   Feel free to post your own Fascination Friday posts...I would love to see what fascinates you!

My first Fascination Friday Friend (say that 3 times fast) is (drumroll please.........!)  Kylie Fowler - The Blissful Pumpkin.  Kyles is a portrait artist who has transferred those skills to mixed media and painting pretty girls!  She is currently in her own fascination with the work of Modigliani and is producing a series of Modigliani-inspired ATCs.  Kyles is always full of pep, inspiration and support!  Go check out her blog and be sure to give her my love!

As for my own work this week:  I am still in the middle of the series of 5.5" x 5.5" paintings that began in my last post.  Here is the latest one, currently 3 more are in the works.

I have been spending way too much of my free time watching YouTube videos by Wyanne. Her artwork is colorful, vibrant, 9 year old son and I just sit and watch her make amazing things. = ) (She has great music with her videos too, lol)

Joana Carvalho said...

Somebody asked me today if I was related to you, because we have the same last I looked you up! Love your work!

Sunny Carvalho said...

Really cool to have discovered Joana Carvalho and her art! Stephanie, I agree...Wyanne is fabulous, I watch her videos, too! Love to you, Regina, Liz and Kylie!

haha! I intentionally haven't tried to figure out Pinterest for fear that I will get addicted. :) maybe one day. So I'm going to Artfest again! so excited! My Artful Journey retreat was cancelled...oh so I've been humming and hawing...and figured, why not! My fiance is so supportive but he says I have to promise to open an Etsy shop before then...because I've been talking about it for too long. good motivation!
