ARTmonday: Yoga Paintings & More by Laura Berger

Tomorrow is International Yoga Day. I love these quirky yoga paintings by Chicago-based artist Laura Berger, who works in acrylic and gouache but also makes things out of clay. I also included some of her pool paintings since I can’t resist fun and refreshing pool art. And a cat too. You can find many of Berger’s work as prints (including prints of some yoga paintings), plus cute cards on Etsy. Be strong.

ARTmonday: 10 Colorful Landscapes by Portland, Maine Artist Joanne Gravelin

In searching for local New England artists last week on Saatchi Art, I came across the work of Joanne Gravelin, a Portland, Maine-based artist who creates colorful landscapes in mixed media.

Gravelin, who grew up in rural Vermont, studied printmaking and painting at Maine College of Art. According to her bio on the Demark Art Center in Denmark, Maine where Gravelin was an artist-in-residence, her work depicts “scenes of the failed American Dream, false paradises, natural wastelands and suburbia.”

I’m following Gravelin’s work (and cat) on Instagram @MyLastPlaceOnEarth with my new art-dedicated Instagram account @StyleCarrotCurates, which I hope you will follow! It’s all art, all the time. (My decor, flowers, food, cat, books, art, sunsets, etc account is @StyleCarrot if you’re not already following, please do.)

Here are ten of Gravelin’s colorful landscapes. Sorry I don’t have full info on every one. I’ll try to contact her and update. Plus, I may need one for our Florida condo.
