I love the red and green canvas with the skyline of the city in black. The other paintings are also great and look better when you look at them directly and not through my picture, because the colors were too vivid for my camera to catch them as they are.
The next stop were these abstract pieces you see above. I'm not sure if that was the intention of the artist, but most of them told stories with just one painting. I wanted to take a few and hang them on my walls! Too bad I had to stick to my budget that weekend.
Finally I chose these little oil paintings. Each of these mini canvas showed a different face of the city. It made me want to take one of those with me so I can bring it anywhere I go in the future and remember about New York...
Well, that was my inspiring walk, and the inspiration came back this weekend when it was too cold to be outside. I discovered a great art supplies store around the corner called Davinci Artist Supply where you can find anything an artist would need at a great price! (Plus student discount of 10% on everything.) You can check it out at: http://www.davinciartistsupply.com
I could spend hours walking around the store and I would still want to try everything. However, since I'm not an expert at all, I decided to go for a few colors, brushes, painting sheets... and start painting.
The truth is that painting is always much more complicated than it looks in my mind before I start. It took me a few hours (no kidding) to do that sort of landscape mixed with Barcelona's Gaudí style columns. I had a lot of fun with this and enjoyed the weekend without facing New York's bitter cold! Now don't go and judge me by my artistic skills of a child and give your inner artist a chance to do something one of these cold weekends to come... Let me know how it goes! Thanks for reading and see you soon!
