WHAT DO YOU THINK?

100 Day Project

Some of you may be following me on twitter or facebook so this is old news, however if you do not, I am participating in a 100 Day Project sponsored by The Great Discontent. 100 days of making, showing up and sharing on Instagram.

I chose 100 days of watercolor and began with a subject dear to my heart. Horses!

Day 1
Day 1

Time for something a little more traditional. Flowers.

Day 2
Day 2

I was really having fun with people so made a trip back to their world.

Day 3
Day 3

Maybe make them my special people, thin people.

Day 4

Day 5
Day 5

and so it goes…

Day 6
Day 6 sold

Because this a new medium for me I am offering all of these watercolors, in their various sizes for $15.00 plus shipping. Yes, $15.00 for an original painting, not a print. Many of them have been sold so if you see one you like message me and reserve it for a gift to yourself or someone else. You can follow me on instagram and facebook at BethRommelStudio or on twitter as Beth Rommel.

What is Art For?

The House at Normandy, on Omaha Beach

I have been attending an on-line class taught by artists Carla Sonheim and Lynn Whipple. A year’s adventure with artists from across the world.

Today, fellow artist, Kristel posted a delightful video entitled What is Art for?

The people from The Book of Life, have illustrated what it is all about.

I will try to distill the five points with my own art, but I recommend you watch the video, for a few minutes of humor and clarity.

1. Art Keeps us Hopeful – beauty gives us reason to be hopeful.

Lady of the Stars

2. Art Makes Us Less Lonely – we all have pain and can share that knowledge with art.

Broken Heart Lady

3. Art Rebalances Us – we are counter balanced with what we need through art.

4. Art Helps us to Appreciate “Stuff” – glamor returns to its rightful place in art.

5. Art is Propaganda for What Really Matters – it energizes us for what matters most.

This video was so clear and helpful in presenting the values that all artists hope to share. So, if you ever wondered, “What is Art for?” tune in to the video.
