Daily face and artists that inspire me: Lisa G

Lisa G is a Canadian artist who is living in Paris. I discovered her a while back, and put her amongst my favorites right away.

I love her use of colours, and the surreal imagery.

Her faces have something magical; innocent and knowing at the same time.

And the way she paints hands ... oh, just the way I like hands: long, thin, elegant. And she's an autodidact too! Hard to believe ....

I'm only allowed to use a few pictures of her paintings on my blog, so if you want to see more, you'll have to visit her blog, her website or her Facebookpage. So much more to see there, check it out!

And here's my face for today:

Hihi ...

Thanks so much for visiting and commenting. Love reading your reactions, they make me smile ♥

  4. Some of Lisa G's body positions, the way they intertwine, remind me a bit of Gustav Klimt's paintings! It looks like she dedicates her full time to her art. Lucky her.
