Look Book Series 15: The Mayor

“If the artist is not completely surprised at what he is painting, then it isn’t a good picture. I want to be surprised by my own pictures. I want to keep on discovering my own pictures.” ~Hundertwasser

My Hundertwasser inspired journey continues with this 20x20 piece titled, 'The Mayor'. A repurposed wrapped canvas is the perfect fit. Enjoy the lookbook and feel free to share, post, pin, and tweet! :)

Look Book Series 14: City Center

"When I paint, I do not try to force the process. I allow myself to be led. That way I cannot make any mistakes.” Hundertwasser had a lively imagination and plenty of ideas. Some of which he turned into paintings and others into buildings. He had a love for nature that was important to him throughout his life. It was the subject of his speeches and made him want to build and live in houses which were in harmony with nature.

As in Hundertwasser's quote above I just listened for direction and let the piece led me, the first time I’ve ever done that for an entire piece, that I can remember it was truly a special experience. No right or wrong but just doing what was requested. I hope I was a good steward with this 20x24 piece, titled, "City Center" in that it speaks to his vision and life’s work. I believe I’ll be in this place of harmony for a bit……enjoy the lookbook. Feel free to share, post, pin, and tweet! :) Additional resources below.
