Emotion through art.

We are drawn to art because it makes feel something. Bottom line. We love it, or we hate it, or it makes us sad, or it makes us remember, or it inspires us..The other day, I was mindlessly wandering around the virtual galleries of Pinterest, when I was literally STOPPED in my tracks...snapped back to the present. I could not take my eyes off this portrait. In fact, I was so mesmerized by it..I followed the link back to the original website ( Desire to Inspire) that it was pinned from, then followed the picture to the Interior Designer who designed the space that Desire to Inspire got it from. That designer is April Tidy , she used this piece in an amazing loft project that you should really check out!! I THEN emailed  April to find out who the artist is!!! I about being moved by art! WOW!! there was just something in the eyes of this portrait that went straight through me!! The artist is Nick Leopard. Please check out his may hate it, you may love it, but either way, his chilling/stunning portraits will make you "feel" something!!

Beautiful. Why does he look sad? Who is he?

I love that other peoples creativity, can evoke such emotion in me!! Do you have a favorite piece of art?? 

Have a great Wednesday! I spent most of my day today in the city and cant wait to share my pics..I even took a few SUPER awkward videos of some of my favorite video I am chewing my gum so loud I want to smack myself..but I may share it anyway, just because its SO ridiculous!!
