Surrealist Artists from In Wonderland at LACMA + Angel Fairy with a Cat WIP



A while back, I went to the LACMA show In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States.  I have been sharing the art I photographed a little bit at a time.  Above is a photograph of all of the women artists who were included in the show.  Below are the links to the artists who most captivated me.

This concludes my series on the LACMA show In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States.  When I get a chance, I'll add a link to this comprehensive list to all of the individual posts.

Here is a work in progress view of my angel fairy with a cat.  She is pretty close to being done.  I'd like to add more shading to her wings and then I think I will be done...  I think I've also finished my little red cardinal bird painting, so I may have two originals to list tomorrow!

Wow She is stunning Lisa Isabella, now i have to check the other art you liked so much, beautiful

I find the drawings are getting less ambiguous and leaning on lineage if that makes any sense, I'VE seen many of this art on some blogs, faces appeal to me, paintings of nature, I've never really been into abstracts, then I again I've never liked Picasso I guess it's a matter of taste. I like your art better, it feels magical to me...the others i find cold and cubic and it does nothing for me sometimes thought abstracts can be very appealing but those are more rare.. anyhoo just my opinion...
