Magical Realism in Painting by Maria Tomasula Born and raised in Chicago, Maria Tomasula is an active part of the Chicago art scene. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago, and then continued her education at Northwestern University, where she earned a Masters degree in Fine Arts. She is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Notre Dame and also is a Lecturer at Northwestern University. With striking color and theatrical compositions, Tomasula’s artwork is influenced by the votive painting of Mexico, as well as the contemporary writers of Latin America. As an artist she seeks to create very unique, but realistic depictions of still-lifes. Using what seem to be simple objects such as fruit, butterflies and flowers, she brings them together to create metaphorical, poetic and ambiguous work. She showcases flowers and fruits by using shallow space and often will paint a curtain or spotlight to draw attentio

Paintings by Sarah Muirhead Sarah Muirhead is an artist born 1987 in Glasgow, currently based in Edinburgh.  I’m fascinated by the physicality and spirit of a body and it’s potential for pleasure, pain and expression. Idiosyncratic character is intrinsically important in my work but an anatomical, pulsing, critical view is also there. The image is an accurate representation but the close detail is an expressive pattern describing minute features. It’s a record of my examination of the subject and my relationship with them rather than a slavish copy of their every pore.  I like using body paint and projectors to give my subjects something to interact with which often leads to an image which articulates the anatomy of the body or lets them be part of the process in deciding which pose or composition works best.  It’s interesting to watch how people react with these tools and whether they use them self consciously or instinctively.  Artist activities on Twitter

The Wonderful Infra Red Photography of John Pilkington ( aka Infaredd ) I trained as an Illustrator/Graphic Designer at St Martins in the ‘70’s and worked in the Photographic industry for about 20 years before changing direction and becoming a Professional Model Maker/Painter selling my work at high end Craft Shows. When the Chemicals involved in kit bashing came close to killing me I somewhat belatedly decided to combine my love of Pencil and Pen & ink drawing, with Infra Red Photography and Esoteric research to produce all that you see on this site. ​ Les Grimoires Du Faerie Top Images from Chateau De La Mothe-Chande Like us on Facebook   Posted by Andrew

Strange McDonalds locations (24 Pics)

1. An Art Deco building in Victoria, Australia, formerly the ‘United Kingdom Hotel’ dating back to 1937. 2. Believe it or not but this is a McDonald’s in Paris, France. Located on Rue Saint Lazare in the 8th arrondissement, the building dates back to 1892 and is a listed historic monument. 3. McDonald’s took over this old steamboat on the Mississippi river in St.Louis. It closed after flooding in 1993. 4. On 42nd street in the historic Theatre District, Broadway, New York. It looks like something straight out of the golden age of theatre. And then you realize it’s a McDonalds. 5. This is probably the fanciest McDonald’s I’ve seen. It’s in Independence, Ohio and I couldn’t find any historical information on the red-brick building but my guess is it used to be an old bank. 6. Galleria Emanuelle Vittori in Milan is Italy’s oldest shopping mall, built in 1861. With a spectacular glass dome and glass-vaulted arcades, it’s a proud city landmark. After 20 years of occu
