Imagine yourself basking in the sunny beaches of Spain recreating in your mind the time of the conquistadors and King Philip's armada sailing the vast ocean looking for lands to conquest in the name of Spain and Christianity.

The old world connects with the modern world in this side of the earth, unmindful of history's tragedies and poignant events that helped in creating the foundation of today's Spain.

The second largest country in Western Europe after France, Spain is bordered to the south and east by the Mediterranean Sea except for a small land boundary with Gibraltar; to the north by France, Andorra, and the Bay of Biscay; and to the west by the Atlantic Ocean and Portugal. Spain was considered the leading world power in the 15th century with its colonization of several territories in the South Americas and Asia notable Mexico, Cuba and the Philippines. Under this global empire, Christianity flourished and Spanish culture and traditions are still being felt centuries hence.

Its legacy today of over 400 million Spanish-speakers worldwide speaks of Spain's global power and influence during that time. Now a developed country with the eighth largest economy in the world, Spain's renaissance after living in stagnation after the time of the Spanish Civil War and the reign of Franco is an inspiring yarn.

Known for having a culturally diverse heritage, having been influenced by many nations and peoples throughout its history, Spanish culture has its origins in the Iberian, Celtiberian, Latin, Visigothic, Roman Catholic, and Islamic cultures.

If you are an ardent student of history or just a tourist with penchant for places with great historical significance, Spain is the place for you. Its rich history and environment have played strong roles in shaping its culture. After Italy, Spain has the second highest number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the world, with a total of 40.

If you are an aspiring artist, living in Spain will be a wonderful idea as it teems with basically all sorts of artistic diversions and its historical significance will surely inspire you to create your own masterpiece. The great painters Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali as well as the unconventional surrealistic filmmaker Luis Buñuel are just some of the Spanish artists that captivated the world. Of course, we should not forget the old impoverished Castilian gentleman, Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, the author of Don Quixote de la Mancha, the most emblematic work in the canon of Spanish literature and a founding classic of Western literature.

So if you ever think of relocating yourself, Spain could be the best place for you. As I have stated earlier, you can create a fairly pretty picture of ships with rough sails at the beaches of Spain or be at the tail of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza as they conquer the world.

Angel Art

Angel art has been around for a long, long time. Angels themselves have been a part of human history and story-telling for a long time as well... most likely since the first words were scribed and the first oral traditions handed down.

There is something innately mysterious and captivating about angels.

Angel art endeavors to reflect this mystery and allure on canvas. Perhaps in so doing, angel art can open a window or a door into the heaven worlds.

There seems to be a collective memory imprinted deep in the psyche as to the existence of angels and angelic beings. "Winged creatures", "Benevolent Spirits" and "Divine Helpers" for example, have been spoken of and written about in cultures, mythologies and religious traditions for thousands of years.

An angel by any other name is still an angel. (smile)

In the Christian tradition, angel art is commonplace. There are warrior angels, guardian angels, cherubim and seraphim and even Cupid, the love angel.

Much of what I would call "classical angel art" draws from stories found in the Old and New testaments.

In contemporary New Age art and in New Age spiritual traditions, angels are "beings of Light" who exist at frequencies beyond what the physical eye can see.

Angel art of the New Age variety often depicts these spirit beings as radiant balls of energy or as ethereal creatures soaring in the heavens. They can be male or female, and they fly free from mortal constraints.

It's interesting that the word "angel" is very much a part of the cultural lexicon. For some reason, however, women are referred to as angels more than men. "She's an angel" is said more often than "he's an angel." And in angel art, female angels are more common than male angels.

I think men are just getting a bad rap - lol!

There have also been several movies alluding to the existence of angels and the "after-life." One of my favorites is the movie "Heart and Souls" starring Robert Downey Jr.

While not specifically calling them angels, Robert Downey Jr. plays a character who as a child has "imaginary friends" that only he can see. These friends turn out to be people on the other side, or "spirits," who need his help before they can move on in the afterlife.

So... do angels, spirit guides and ethereal beings really exist?

Well, many of those who have had near-death encounters would say absolutely yes. And people who have gone through trying circumstances in their lives and emerged victorious often attribute their success to a guardian angel.

I'm not sure there's an answer that will satisfy every one. Even so, there's something about angels and the spirit world that resonates deep within the human soul and psyche. I think the best angel art touches that place... inspiring hope, possibilities and a feeling that we are not alone.

Nail Art

It is true that humans, especially women, always pay attention to beauty. There was always the art of women's clothing or the art of women's hair, but what is new, in the last twenty years, is the development of a new kind of art, nail art. The art of making nails look beautiful, fancy. Today a lot has been done to organize nail art events in order to promote and make it more popular. We see this in many countries.

Nail art is the art of decorating nails with various materials found in the market. It is of Japanese origin, that's why the most famous nail artists are from Japan. It involves filing nails, painting them either in one color or two colored stripes, but also making draws and images on them.

In some cases women like to follow more complicated ways of nail beauty, such as putting chains, buttons and precious metals on the nails. All these require the efforts of fully trained individuals, so that people will not feel pain.

This whole process has the benefit, that serves the woman's need to do something about her appearance. However, at the same time and if the creation is successful, it brings feelings of satisfaction and happiness. These feelings become mutual among women who offer their nails for decoration and nail artists, especially those who do nail art as a full-time job.

People who like to take care of women's nails were very few until recently, but now with the great development of this magnificent art, the number of individuals that get training courses, in many countries of the world, is getting bigger.

Besides the increased popularity of this art, there is also a trend of increased number of relative advertisements. Different materials used for nail decoration and reference to special training schools are shown through TV and other mass media.

For how long nail art will continue to be popular among female population is not certain. Maybe it will be continued for ever, but nobody can tell for sure. Despite weird and not confirmed stories of negative consequences of nail decoration, for the time being, more and more women would like and try to take care of their nails, thinking that this process, is for their own benefit. So it is proper to say that at least for some decades, nail art will still be popular.

No matter how long the popularity of nail art will continue, there have to be even more systematic efforts to educate people, who want to work as nail artists. Thus women will avoid pain and enjoy the results, feeling confident about the beauty of their nails.

Abstract Art

By bayem loro | At 10:27 | Label : | 0 Comments

Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world.Western art had been, from the Renaissance up to the middle of the 19th century, underpinned by the logic of perspective and an attempt to reproduce an illusion of visible reality. The arts of cultures other than the European had become accessible and showed alternative ways of describing visual experience to the artist. By the end of the 19th century many artists felt a need to create a new kind of art which would encompass the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science and philosophy. The sources from which individual artists drew their theoretical arguments were diverse, and reflected the social and intellectual preoccupations in all areas of Western culture at that time.

Abstract art, nonfigurative art, nonobjective art, and nonrepresentational art are loosely related terms. They are similar, but perhaps not of identical meaning.

Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art. This departure from accurate representation can be only slight, or it can be partial, or it can be complete. Abstraction exists along a continuum. Even art that aims for verisimilitude of the highest degree can be said to be abstract, at least theoretically, since perfect representation is likely to be exceedingly elusive. Artwork which takes liberties, altering for instance color and form in ways that are conspicuous, can be said to be partially abstract. Total abstraction bears no trace of any reference to anything recognizable. In geometric abstraction, for instance, one is unlikely to find references to naturalistic entities. Figurative art and total abstraction are almost mutually exclusive. But figurative and representational (or realistic) art often contains partial abstraction.

Both geometric abstraction and lyrical abstraction are often totally abstract. Among the very numerous art movements that embody partial abstraction would be for instance fauvism in which color is conspicuously and deliberately altered vis-a-vis reality, and cubism, which blatantly alters the forms of the real life entities depicted.

Flower Art

Flower art can be very beautiful. Artists often express emotions in their art as well as portray the beauty in nature when they do it appropriately and in a way that audiences will enjoy. It can come in many different forms. Some types of flower art include photos, paintings, drawings, and pressed flowers.

Photographers take photos of an endless number of items. Flowers seem to be a popular choice for photography. Some of these photos might be used for things like calendars, desktop backgrounds on computers, or even wall decorations when the photos are framed. Some photographers simply photograph flowers as they are in their surroundings outdoors or even indoors and others situate the flowers in a pleasing arrangement for the camera.

Flower paintings are another popular medium for art. There are oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings of flowers along with other types of paint. However, the ones listed are the most common types of paint that are used.

There are several types of styles also. It seems that some paintings show exactly what the artist saw at the time he or she was creating the artwork. This style is known as realism because it shows realistic details. Other artists focus on expressing feelings or exploring shapes or colors. This is known as abstraction because it is not completely realistic but focuses more on the subjective form or how the main idea of the painting makes people feel.

There are even artists that specialize in creating paintings of flowers. Some of these painters who are American include Martin Johnson Heade, Maria Oakey Dewing, and Georgia O'Keeffe. There are also other Dutch, French, German, Belgian, Spanish, Flemish and Danish flower painters. The list goes on and on, starting from as early as the 1500's (and possibly even earlier) through today.

Another popular form of flower art is that of flower drawings. These make viewers appreciate the simple beauty in flowers. Drawings include quite a bit of detail. While they will not be as exact as photographs, the essence of the flowers and overall feel of the scene can be capture with other effects such as atmospheric perspective or exaggeration. This makes certain parts of the drawing stand out more than others and brings it to life.

Another form of art that involves flowers is that of pressed flowers. This is easy and can be a fun project to do. It is not expensive to do this and the equipment is easy to find. Flower presses can be found and purchased at craft stores, even though they are not always necessary. Flowers, absorbent paper, pressure, and warmth are the only things that are needed in order to press flowers. While there are not many specific pressed flower artists, it is still a popular form of art involving flowers.

Flower art has the potential to be quite beautiful and inspiring. Viewers have the chance to see another side of nature that they normally might not see and might actually enjoy it. Overall, there are endless possibilities and they are all appealing in their own way.

Pencil Art

Art is not just a word to some individuals, sometimes it is a feeling or one just gets happy when they either hear or see art. Art helps people with frustration, anger, happiness, sorrow, and any other type of emotion. There are many different types of art, but the there is one in particular that interests me most. One can say that pencil art may be the most influential art that there is, because there is no color.

Pencil Art

When looking at a portrait or picture that only has black and white in it, it helps to see the reality in a drawing but more importantly, one can feel the emotion in a pencil drawing. Rather that having a portrait that is in color. Pencil art drawing is more about feeling and emotion and is more acceptable to those who really love this version of art. Being an artist myself the satisfaction of drawing with a pencil and seeing the outcome of the drawing draws in pure adrenaline for me. It may do this also for people who love to do pencil art. One may say that pencil art drawing may be bland and colorless, but at the end of the day it is deeper than color.

Pencil art drawing is compatible to the world because the simple fact is that the world is a pencil. It is full of different shades, sizes, and depending on who it is talent. Looking outside the box, one can come to the understanding that all pencils are the same. Every one is different and no one draws the same portrait unless it is very popular and the popular pictures are the one's that are in color. This goes to say that even though pencil drawings have no color, they hold the most because of the detail that one is able to see in the portrait itself. Because in some cases color in a portrait is not always a good thing. Keep in mind that art did not start with color, it started as a feeling transferred from the brain to paper. Also that every one has their own different type of emotion. Any and every one is able to create a pencil drawing because no one will have the same one because we are all different.

When one is able to understand pencil art as an emotion and not just a word, then that individual will be able to understand themselves.
