Brian Donnelly is a San Francisco based artist. He works primarily in oil paints, and the majority of his current work is portraiture. Brain paints highly detailed and refined paintings, and then destroys a art of them by using turpentine to "melt the color" away. I really like how colorful and lively his paintings are.
It's finally compete!!! Wish i had a littl emore time to change/ tweak some things, but overall it's decent. Hopefully i'll find some time to edit it some, but here it is.
I really enjoyed this lunchtime lecture on architecture and design today at school. For me, I realistically know that I will probably not pursue the arts as a career or for college. However, art is a large and vital part of my life and seeing/ hearing from people who's job blends math with design , two of my favorite subjects, is really encouraging. I've always wondered about what architecture entails and the different types of this job. After many of the lectures, I come away from them inspired by what others do and impressed that they followed that path, but I've never considered them a career option. After this I actually came home and talked about the idea of doing something like this with my parents.This made me wonder about how design and practicality blend, especially in the design of functional buildings, rather than simply sculpture. This made me wonder more about what happens in terms of this career after school, and what that process is like. Overall, I got a lot out of this lecture and felt like i learned a lot about the process/ idea planning that goes into this work.
All the parts are complete! all i have left is to combine brain holders with the insides back at school, and seal them up! No store in Richmond seems to sell pink packing peanuts, so we bought white ones and I hand painted. Used watered down acrylic in a large ziploc, with a couple handful of peanuts each round, air dried. I like the variation created though by doing it myself!
Erin Hanson was born and raised in the beautiful valleys of the midwest. She loved art growing up, but followed a different career path, becoming a bio-engineer. After her own business grew and reached a level where she could simply oversee it, she gained more free time and returned to her true passion, art. Erin now works almost solely in oil paints, creating vivid and dynamic landscapes. Her style is considered to be "open-impressionism" a much looser and light version of the movement.
