Feeling Giddy.. it's been a while!



For one reason or another it's been a while since I contributed to ODP's Monday murals, definitely not through lack of choice. As a 'wannabe' artist myself :) it amazes me how real artists make it look so easy. Take a look here at Perth based artist James Giddy at work in Cottesloe, amazing! The above piece found on the wall of the Little Wing Corner Gallery on Hay St. is an excellent example.. if you bring it in and take a closer look you'll see how his seemingly random mix of colours and shapes work together to create the giraffe's features. You can learn the technicalities of art, but there has to be an element of natural talent also don't you think? I'm keeping mes yeux open for more :) Hope your week has started well, happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  6. A very artistic piece, and looking in closer, it's as if there is a picture within a picture I see throughout.

  7. Being related by blood to a couple of artists, I can tell you that it definitely is NOT just a matter of DNA. :-)

  8. That's a pretty one :)
    I would really love to see more of those,
    instead of the ones soaking with blood.

    Have a fine Tuesday

  9. Such creativity amazes me, always! Love the colors, too. And I agree that one can learn certain fundamentals of a craft but there's always that issue of talent that brings excellence to the fore!

  12. This giraffe is an interesting mixture of accuracy and whimsy. I like it!

    You have a great photographic eye so I'm willing to bet you are more than a "wannabe' artist.

  14. Love your title Grace, excellent! I wonder what it's like being called Giddy! ;-)) But then again, perhaps giraffes sometimes feel giddy too?

  23. It is a nice giraffe painting, Grace. (I did click on the link to watch the video . . . these time lapse videos of artists at work are fun . . . I have a post coming up in a week or two that has a link to the creation of the work I will show.)
