Today I'm doing a post on a topic I have never done before. A post about...art. I haven't really been into artists before. Especially ones that are still alive and all that. I do know Mr. Thomas Kinkade (though he passed away in 2012), but that is because we have some of his art work. If you don't know Kinkade I will show you one of his works real quick before we get into Cheval...
Beautiful, isn't it? We have this one currently hanging in our family room. Although, ours in my opinion, has a much prettier frame with a cool light shining down on it. This painting is called, The Garden of Prayer. If you look closely, at the pathway at the right Jesus is walking to meet you here. Kinkade has sooo many beautiful paintings.
The next artist I am about to show is not exactly everyone's taste. I have recently been exposed to his works thanks to the cruise I told you guys about in my previous post. You see, the cruise ship had lots of art and we were over there quite a bit. Which was fun! And Mr. Cheval had not only me, but my family enchanted by his creative art.
I will first show you one of my favorites. And I'm glad to say it will soon be hanging in my room. Yes. My first piece of real art! Well, technically, it is embedded onto metal, going through a whole procedure and finished with Cheval's real signature. Which is sooo cool! And to add, mine is going to be a little one, which is fine with me! That way I have lots of room on my walls to add more pictures. Anyways, here it is...
Isn't she beautiful?! Ahh...I just love her! This picture is called, Melody of Rain. So fitting. It's so whimsical and enchanting. It's so much fun that you can get creative and make your own story of what is going on in the picture. I love it.
Michael Cheval is a contemporary artist specializing in Absurdist paintings, drawings and portraits. He is the co-founder of Cheval Fine Art Inc. and currently resides in New Jersey, United States. His work is internationally acclaimed and has been exhibited regularly in galleries across the United States and Europe.
If you would like to learn more about Michael, there is more about him on his Wikipedia page. :) And now, time for more of his "absurdist" paintings I fancy. Quick disclaimer, I do not love all of his paintings, but I do like quite a few and find them fascinating and unique, creative, and magical.
