Oreo Portraits? No way!

OK just when you think youve seen it all I find a woman who does portraits on Oreo cookies, flowers made from hair, nails clippings and baby teeth and little scenes using insects as the main characters. Judith Klausner is a graduate of Wesleyan U and is based in Somerville, MA. Her stuff is very provocative, always engaging and even slightly repulsive but never dull. Isnt that what good art is all about?

Diane Poinski – A Master at Hand Painting Photos

I found Diane Poinski on Facebook recently. She does wonderful hand painted photos and more importantly, she has written a free e-book to teach others to do the same. This is a technique I have always been curious about but never tried because I didnt like the expense of having to buy tubes of Marshall’s photo oils needed to do it. Until now, that was the best method, but now with the introduction of PanPastels, it is less messy and a lot less expensive. Not that the PanPastels are cheap by any means, but they seem to be easier to manage and have other applications besides hand painting photos, which justifies the expense better.

 

View Diane’s portfolio and download her free ebook about Hand Painting Photos at her website – and dont forget to LIKE her on Facebook, too!

Encaustic Artist and Author Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch

Keeping with my new fascination with photography and encaustic, I just purchased two new books by author and encaustic art Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch on Amazon. One is on the way and one is due for release the beginning of August 2011. She is a wonderful instructor and a terrific artist, not to mention a really nice person, too. Very generous with her knowledge. She also runs EncaustiCamps, which I wish I was nearby so I could attend. Check out her website at pbsartist.com if you are interested in seeing her work.
