This week’s – and the very first featured Artsy Fartist – is someone dear to me and she actually inspired me to create this weekly space to show off the art of anyone that loves to express themselves in artsy fartsy ways but never considered their art …ART.. or wanted to show it to anyone, or doesn’t have a place to display it.. or has their own space and I feel like bringing the wonder of their creative expression to your attention.
Linda had the wonderfully humorous blog Linda Vernon Humor leaving your daily routine minty not mediciney.
We first met when she was the very first person to leave a comment on my blog – and she kept coming back for more 🙂 I adore her sense of humor and the way she views the world. She loves to peruse the thrift stores and find little known fun facts that improve our lives and her take on them will have anyone who reads giggling, guffawing, and damn near peeing themselves – I have blown coffee out my nose, laughed til I cried, chuckled for hours afterwards and yes, damn near peed myself. She is wonderfully supportive and my bbff – and my cyber mom.
This feature came to mind when she posted a drawing her husband 37 did and her attempt at the same drawing. What ensued was a discussion of the merits of technical drawing skill vs just plain artistic expression and that anything that is creative expression in my mind is indeed art.
So many of us were given the idea in school that we had no artistic ability because we did not see and do things technically, or to the standards created then. I think Linda is wonderfully artistic. She loves to doodle on her blog – even has a Drawing Lady feature – and has a style that is uniquely her own. Her drawings are as humorous as her writing as you will see..not in a funny hahaha laugh at the drawing but that in they are puns and cartoons – doodles – statements of life and the things we do. I love her art, and would love to be able to draw in Linda Vernon fashion.
Here are four of her pieces that are wonderful examples of her style and creativity.
For your enjoyment. I give you the artsy brain fartsies of my friend, my cyber mom – I totally love and adore her! – and this week’s Featured Artsy Fartist,
