Sybile Art...

Being new to the whole artist/drawing/painting thing I am always looking at other artist's works for inspiration and knowledge. Most times I can study a painting or drawing and figure out the techniques used by the artist to create a certain highlight or element. After recently redoing our bedroom (where I have my art table) I decided that I wanted to get some prints from a few of the artist's who's work spoke to me. In my previous post I mentioned Jeannie Paske's Obsolete please feast your eyes on this!

She is extremely talented and I love her work as well as the concept of her art. If you dare to see more you can visit her at the following places:

I am in the process of fixing up our bedroom where I have a small table that I use to do my art. The plan is to put some floating shelves over the desk and on those shelves to put things that inspire me.

I stumbled upon the work of Jeannie Paske during one of my blog surfing sessions...I couldn't tell you where I started out or how I got there - just that I ended up in her World and was so amazed at what I saw. She is fantastic! I was so excited to receive my print in the mail today - it's called "Unwilling to Shine". For me, the print says alot about me - I am always afraid that I am not going to be any good so I am always sitting back and looking at everyone else and dreaming, wishing...
