Friday Favourites

Today’s Favourites take a very boring, everyday object, in fact something most of us find rather ugly, and use it to create a beautiful image.


Tina Modotti  –   Photograph

Layla Messkoub   –   Woodcut

Jeff League  –  Mixed Media – Encaustic Painting and Photograph

Katherine Bowling  –  Oil Painting

Lucy Reynolds  –  Watercolour and Ink

Joel Ganucheau  –  Oil Painting

Ben McLaughlin   –   Oil Painting

Nathalie Nayer   –   Mixed Media

P Raile –  Photograph

and to finish off this mixed media selection of really interesting interpretations of Powerlines I have another of Jeff League’s works

Encaustic, photograph onto an antique map

I hope you have enjoyed this rather eclectic selection of works.

Have a spiffing weekend.

    Hi Magpie, please link to the site within your post, each time you use an image or mention Jeff’s name. These images were registered with the U.S. copyright office on June 1 2011, and you legally have no right to use them, even with attribution.

    You really should do this for the other artists also. It’s good Karma.

    I will be keeping an eye on this post for your changes.

      I am very sorry for being lazy and not adding links to the artists own websites. Often there are not, so I will acknowledge the image source. I have updated the post and will go back through all my posts to correct the admission where ever possible. I meant no offence but was keen to share this really wonderful work.
