The current challenge at the BASB blog is to create a layout about an artist that inspires you. I loved this idea for a challenge, and it made me think about Maxfield Parrish, who has long been an inspiration to me!
I had fun playing around with my paints, and ended up doing a double-page spread in honor of Mr. Parrish... Journaling reads:
I discovered Maxfield Parrish's work as a teen, and have been enthralled with it ever since. His intense colors, the way he created light in his paintings, and the unique whimsy of his illustrations are all so inspiring. Maxfield Parrish 1870 - 1966. A truly magical artist.
Materials used include:
Brown textured cardstock, acrylic paint, images from a book about Mr Parrish, a white glaze pen, white sharpie, purple thickers and white remarks alphas.
and here are a couple of closeups:
So, what artist inspires you?
I will be back tomorrow with a Project 365 update. Take care my scrappy friends, and thanks for stopping by!
