This week I present to you a collection I stumbled upon not too long ago by chance and found my new favorite artist. If I could own the painting of just one artist, this would be the one. As for who Mrs. Boswell is, she was my 8th Grade Geometry teacher. Bob Ross? He was the painter of happy clouds and lakes with mirrored images of trees and those happy clouds.
The style might seem familiar to other artists but the truth is, this person’s background fed directly into this style development. One hint, as I do hope you will perhaps cheat this week, this artist is still alive today, but at an age that makes it a true joy and wonder that that age has given to a rediscovery and appreciation of this talent.
Cheating allowed this week in this guessing game and challenge of your cultural level of artistic knowledge.
Comment your opinions about the piece and if you know what, when and who about it then all the better to let everyone know. Look at the details. (Click on the image to see a larger version.)
Write a piece of poetry or even a post. If you create a post, link back to here or even put your link in the comments, just like with the Haiku Challenge. Or you can simply share your poetry in the comments. Good luck ,good viewing, good inspiration, and finally, good creating. Also, if you are artistic and create something inspired by this, share it with us.
