Working on a new one, it was painted over a group painting back from Arte Para Todos earlier this year. See where the painting is at now and swipe to see the older group painting. I love group art and it makes amazing backgrounds full of color and shapes. Can’t wait to finish this one up soon. . . . #wip #grouppainting #art #painting #arty #artoftheday #contemporaryart #womanartist #abstractart #abstractpainting #layers #paintingoftheday #texture

Почему архитектура? Часто я сама задаюсь этим вопросом. И не всегда уверенна, что приняла правильное решение. Людям я отвечаю, что мне это нравится. Но нравится ли? Еще в средней школе у меня был выбор, программирование или искусство. Неплохая разбежка, правда? Математика, физика и информатика давались мне легко, оценки стабильно были 9ки. Но мне было скучно, я не люблю заучивать формулы, теоремы, и тд. А рисовать я могла сколько угодно. Поступив в бнту, мне стало страшно. У меня не было художественного образования. А 95% студентов где-то отучились или имели родителей архитекторов. Я просто спрашивла себя, куда я лезу?? А потом я поняла, что мне это нравится. Нравится не спать ночами, чертить, рисовать, проектировать. Но ровно до того момента, пока не приходилось сдавать. Желание учиться отбивали преподаватели. Наверно это еще СССРовская закалка-унижать учеников и студентов, чтобы лучше учились. Возможно кому-то это помогало, но не мне. У меня сразу пропадало желание делать хоть что-то. До сих пор не могу понять логику большинства из них. Лето, конец второго курса, экзамен по истории искусств. Я совмещаю работу и учёбу. Передо мной отвечает девочка, которая ничего не выучила, так как была на студенческой вечеринке. Преподовательница посмеялась, задала ей 101 вопрос, и вытянула ей 8 баллов, с фразой " ох уж эта студенческая жизнь". Следующая я, не выспавшаяся, отвечаю на билет. -что, тоже гуляла? -нет, поздно с работы вернулась. Лицо препадши так исказило, будто она лимон проглотила. А дальше была лекция, что я должна выбрать, деньги или образование 🤔 Сейчас я понимаю, что нужно было ответить, но тогда мне было просто обидно. И уверенна, что за мой отпор, она нагадила бы мне больше, чем четверкой в зачетке. Сейчас я опять стою в самом начале. И мой самый большой страх - разочароваться. . . #liketime #interesting #art #artwork #artoftheday #polskadziewczyna #polska #language #travel #путешествия #акварель #искусство #художник #toriya_va_обо_мне #shcool #student #universitet

Design Storage Units. These are exclusive images of all my storage units where just some of my design materials are stored. These are all 30x30 in size and I have around 120 in total. These are the ones in these storage units but I have a vast amount of materials collected that are all on shelves that are too big in size to put in these boxes. Some of materials I’ve collected go back nearly 20 years so these are all very personal to me. I rarely show any of my process so these shots were specially taken so that you have a glimpse of not only my madness but the way my design work is created. It takes a long time for me to process/collect/catalogue/cut/prepare/ each and every single material before finally using on my designs. #artoftheday #instagram #artofvisuals #dope #instagramhub #art #artsy #contemporaryart #followgram #follow4follow #followforfollowback #instaart #instaartist #arte #arts #instaday #artofinstagram #instafollowers #igdaily #artists #followers #f4f #instagramer #followforfollow #followme #follow #following #followtrain #storage #instagood

No.109 • Title: The bedroom • Artist: Vincent van Gogh • Year: 1888 • Dimension: 72cm x 90 • Medium: Oil on canvas • Location: Van Gogh Museum (Amsterdam) • Description: While he was in Arles, Van Gogh made this painting of his bedroom in the Yellow House. He prepared the room himself with simple furniture and with his own work on the wall. The bright colours were meant to express absolute ‘repose’ or ‘sleep’. Research shows that the strongly contrasting colours we see in the work today are the result of discolouration over the years. The walls and doors, for instance, were originally purple rather than blue. The apparently odd angle of the rear wall, meanwhile, is not a mistake on Van Gogh’s part – the corner really was skewed. The rules of perspective seem not to have been accurately applied throughout the painting, but this was a deliberate choice. Vincent told Theo in a letter that he had deliberately ‘flattened’ the interior and left out the shadows so that his picture would resemble a Japanese print. Van Gogh was very pleased with the painting: ‘When I saw my canvases again after my illness, what seemed to me the best was the bedroom.’

No.108 • Title: The Plum • Artist: Édouard Manet • Year: 1877 • Dimension: 73.6 cm x 50.2 cm • Medium: Oil on canvas • Location: National Gallery of Art (Washington, D.C) • Description: The painting is a study in loneliness, depicting a quiet, almost melancholy, scene of a young working girl seated in a café. The subject is viewed from nearby, perhaps by another seated customer. She may be a prostitute waiting for a client, or possibly a shop worker hoping for some conversation. On the table is a plum soaked in brandy, a speciality of Parisian cafés at the time (originally painted as a glass of beer), which gives the painting its title. She may be waiting for a waiter to bring a spoon to eat her plum. The plum may be a reference to the woman& #039;s sexuality, as the fruit was later used in James Joyce& #039;s Ulysses. She leans forward, with her cheek resting on her right hand, and her right elbow on the marble tabletop, looking into the distance with a blank pensive look. Her left hand rests on the table holding an unlit cigarette. She wears a pink dress with embroidered cuffs, a white jabot, and a black hat trimmed with silk and lace. Her head is framed by the decorative grille behind her, above the red upholstered banquette on which she sits. Manet may have based the painting on observations at the Café de la Nouvelle Athènes on the Place Pigalle in Paris. However, the background - the decorative grille and its gold frame - does not match other depictions of the café, and suggests the painting was made in Manet’s studio, where he is known to have had a café-style marble table on iron legs. Manet uses a simple style: for example, the plum in its glass and the fingers of the woman& #039;s left hand are created with just a few dabs of colour. The model is the actress Ellen Andrée, who was also depicted with Marcellin Desboutin in the similar 1876 painting L& #039;Absinthe by Edgar Degas. The similarities between the two paintings suggest that Manet& #039;s The Plum may be a response to Degas& #039;s L& #039;Absinthe. Degas& #039;s painting shows a bleak scene of despair blunted by absinthe; Manet& #039;s is a more hopeful scene, where there is the chance that the sitter& #039;s loneliness may be broken.

The subject is viewed from nearby, perhaps by another seated customer. She may be a prostitute waiting for a client, or possibly a shop worker hoping for some conversation. On the table is a plum soaked in brandy, a speciality of Parisian cafés at the time (originally painted as a glass of beer), which gives the painting its title. She may be waiting for a waiter to bring a spoon to eat her plum. The plum may be a reference to the woman's sexuality, as the fruit was later used in James Joyce's Ulysses. She leans forward, with her cheek resting on her right hand, and her right elbow on the marble tabletop, looking into the distance with a blank pensive look. Her left hand rests on the table holding an unlit cigarette. She wears a pink dress with embroidered cuffs, a white jabot, and a black hat trimmed with silk and lace. Her head is framed by the decorative grille behind her, above the red upholstered banquette on which she sits. 
Manet may have based the painting on observations at the Café de la Nouvelle Athènes on the Place Pigalle in Paris. However, the background - the decorative grille and its gold frame - does not match other depictions of the café, and suggests the painting was made in Manet’s studio, where he is known to have had a café-style marble table on iron legs. Manet uses a simple style: for example, the plum in its glass and the fingers of the woman's left hand are created with just a few dabs of colour. 
The model is the actress Ellen Andrée, who was also depicted with Marcellin Desboutin in the similar 1876 painting L'Absinthe by Edgar Degas. The similarities between the two paintings suggest that Manet's The Plum may be a response to Degas's L'Absinthe. Degas's painting shows a bleak scene of despair blunted by absinthe; Manet's is a more hopeful scene, where there is the chance that the sitter's loneliness may be broken.
