Art is Life

Art is a songHave you ever been so moved by the words of a song that you had to play it over again because it spoke to you?  That is art.

Have you ever read a poem that put into words all you wanted to ever say but did not know how? That is art.

Have  you ever looked at a painting or a photograph and could see a story  or a message within that image?
If someone came behind you and they saw a different story relating to their own life? That is art.

Art to me comes from deep within. It’s highly personal and it is also very subjective. What it means to me may not mean the same to you but that is the beauty of art.

I have had a lot going on in my life lately and most of it is great and then there were some bumps in the road but nonetheless, I have been creating art and that brings me much joy.

I had two pieces hanging at the Art Center in June. I am preparing myself to enter a couple of other shows and that takes much planning.

I am also hoping to be selling my artwork at this upcoming Artwalk so we will see.

Oh and I just recently launched my very own website!

brigittecadena.com

This is a place to check out my original artwork available for sale and there are pages devoted to how you can commission me for a piece of art and also how to schedule a photo shoot for you or your loved ones.

More to come.

This piece will be hanging in the Member’s Gallery at the Art Center here in Corpus Christi,  from now until early September.

I LOVE-Paintings I Love website

Paintings I love – Brigitte Cadena

Sure it’s a play on words but I just couldn’t resist.

This is a website that is FOR the Artist. I stumbled onto this site this summer and had it in my mind I would give it a try. This site is for the artists to showcase their paintings and get feedback on their work.

I was seriously wanting to get some feedback on some of my latest work in painting and this is the best place I have found so far.

Michelangelo was adament in his time that he considered himself first a sculptor before he was a painter. According to Art History he never wanted the commission of the Sistine Chapel but the Pope insisted that he do this job or risk future jobs he was negotiating.

You see, I love all art. I really do and when I set out to try a new medium or technique-I just dive right in-no life saver vest or anything. However, I have been doing photography for so many years, it comes so naturally for me, I don’t even think twice when I have my camera in my hand, I click away.

As far as drawing and painting, I taught myself to draw through much trial and error back in 2008. When I first started drawing I really believed I was only capable of drawing little stick figures. As I continued on with this I got better and better. Charcoal is a favorite of mine, I love working with the different tones and values that charcoal as messy as it is allows. Painting is much more new to me than drawing and taking pictures. So yes I wanted to see what others, artists like myself thought about my work. And I found this great website:
Paintings I love – Brigitte Cadena that offers me just what I needed.

If you are an artist and you want to get some good constructive feedback for your work or new pieces, this is the place to join. The people are friendly and encouraging and you will be among some wonderful talented artists from all over the world.
