Daily girl and artists that inspire me: Sarah Joncas

I got an answer from one of the artists I wanted to feature, so here she is! Sarah Joncas is a young Canadian artist living in Toronto. I think her art is amazing, this girl is really talented.

She paints mostly women, which by now is not a surprise anymore I guess, since all my inspiring artists paint mostly women.

I love the surreal elements of her paintings.

Such beautiful faces ...

And that hair blowing in the wind ... wish I knew how to do that!

Sometimes she uses a more illustrative kind of style

Look at those bubbles, and that hair again ... love it!

Oh, and did I mention how I love the eyes?

Isn't it beautiful!? *sigh* I could look at her art for ages.

This is really interesting I think. The initial layer is in acrylics, and the top layers are oil. I find it fascinating to see how she starts with a painting.

If you can't get enough, check out her blog, her website and her Facebookpage. So much more to see there!

And here's my daily one-liner, with a very true quote ....

Thanks for visiting! See you tomorrow for the paint party!
