Too Much Inspiration!

In the last few days I have been overwhelmed with inspiration being poured out right into my lap. So much that I can not contain it all. 
It has come about as I search for ideas with the Mandorla Art Award and the Benalla Nude Art Prize. These are high profile awards and I am but a small fish in the sea of professional artists but I am enjoying the process of applying, even if I am not selected, I am discovering so much delicious art and music, learning new techniques and studying the greats!

To name a few things that are inspiring me...I'll begin with the artist below - Steven Duluz who I stumbled across in my collection of artists I like. A friend introduced his work to me a couple of years ago and I guess I just wasn't ready to appreciate the mystical, earthy beauty. Maybe I found it a little threatening as I would love to create art like this but didn't know how. I still don't know how, but I want to try and learn from this master and am currently experimenting with my art materials to see what I can come up with. That will be interesting!!

The warm glow of light and stunning texture in these abstract forms presented in his work has me gasping for air! Combined with his art video which he has on Youtube (and I posted it to my Facebook page), there is this sublime, other-wordly music and female voices that melt the heart, soothe the soul and  
took me to heavenly places.

  1. Hi Janet,
    Well done on finding Steven Deluz. I also found him whilst researching Illuminists as I have a passion for light and atmosphere in my art practice. I believe the displayed works are from his 'Watchers' series.
    I note that Steven keeps parts of his process to himself but I am confident that with a little trial and error you may work out a few ways to create those beautiful textures.
    All the best. I hope to see your work in the Mandorla Art prize.
