Daily girl and artists that inspire me: Olga Gouskova

Olga Gouskova is a Russian-born artist, who immigrated to Belgium in 1996 and still lives there.

 I've known her art for years now and I love it. The contrast between the muted realistic figures and the more outlined illustration-like hair, flowers, butterflies etc. makes her work really interesting and different.

She usually paints women, beautiful, melancholic and strong women.

Her paintings have a dreamlike quality.

I love how she makes those patterns in the clothes. 

And the hair is beautifully done as well...

Her women often have flowers or butterflies coming out of their hair. Love it!

Look at that lace. So beaufitul ...

You can find lots more of this eye-candy on her website. She has a Facebookpage too. Go have a look, you won't regret it!

Today's one-line-girl is having trouble remembering things.

Reminds me of myself sometimes ;-) Especially when it comes down to technical things. My hubby has to explain things time and time again, and I keep forgetting it. My 9-year-old daughter knows better how to handle the moviebox than I do ... Strange how my memory is excellent when it's about painting and techniques and materials and artists' names .... I guess that shows where my real interests lie, right !?

Well, that's it for today. Hope you enjoyed Olga's art, I'll see you tomorrow with another one-liner. Thanks for stopping by!
