Lately, I’ve been interested in doing collaborations or shout-out’s for some of my blogs as a fellow friend, blogger and model had suggested doing a collaboration or shout-out an idea. I don’t know if any of my readers who happen to also be bloggers tend to search WordPress, Blogger, Penzu or any of the other Blogging websites for ideas for future blogs, but I do! It gets my creative juices flowing and allows me to also see what material works well for their readers and what doesn’t. So I had recently seen a couple fellow Bloggers do shout-outs to other Bloggers, but I wanted to change it up a bit and actually give a shout-out to an upcoming Artist in the local Wichita area. I mean, who doesn’t go to Final Fridays here in Wichita, and see all the new art Wichita has to offer?
The person I want to give a shout-out first started painting when she was younger, starting out with Watercolor but got busy with kids, working and making sure the bills were paid. Recently after she was able to find some more free-time, she got back into painting and making art with Watercolor as her medium for most of her art, but she decided to try other mediums as well like Acrylic, sketching with Artist markers, Alcohol Ink, other Mixed Media and the most recent doing pours with Acrylic. Since she picked back up on her painting after a long time, she has gained so many experiences that allow her to paint such magnificent works.
No matter what medium she chooses, most of the artwork turns out pretty amazing. There have been paintings that she finishes, and discovers she doesn’t like as much, but that happens to most artists and even myself as a Blogger. I’ll start typing something for a blog and halfway in discover I lost either my focus or just am bored with the topic. If I’m bored with writing it, so are my readers I figure.
In any art, you must grab the reader or anyone’s attention. It doesn’t matter what it is; theatre, painting, poetry or stories, TV shows, movies, blogs or vlogs. If you don’t grab the attention of the readers/visitors/followers, then you lost the entire point of your art or job. This artist makes sure to always put herself, her experiences, her love for colors and feelings into her artwork, thus making it relatable to her followers or potential customers.
This artist as I mentioned has just recently gotten into the Wichita Art scene and actually got to be apart of a Final Friday a month or so back. She was able to show off two of her best artworks in the art show, which hopefully spread her name to other artist and customers in the Wichita area. Maybe you will even see more of her art in the future on Final Fridays and other art shows here in Wichita.
If you would like to check out more of her artwork, follow the process she does while making them, or even if you can’t afford it – just enjoying the beautiful artwork she makes, check out these links below! Heck, maybe you’ll even buy one!!
