ARTmonday: 9 Figures In States of Undress In the Snow

I started off aiming for beautiful but slightly edgy snowy landscape images. But when I came across a snowy nude, and then another, I thought, why not? My son wants to know why I’m putting up porn on my blog. I told him, “This is art.”

Here are nine snowy landscape images, or more specifically, nine artworks with figures (not just women, though mostly women) in various states of undress in snowy landscapes. Captions provided for your entertainment. Happy night before a snow day.

She wandered out from her verandah in her peignoir, forgetting she was no longer in the Carolinas.

Fractal Snow  Paul Coker
$150 at Saatchi Art

I thought these were bare-nekked Barbie dolls planted in the snow. Nope, seems to be a real live woman, silhouetted and pasted in the landscape ad infinitum.

 Warm Winter  •  Ilona Shevchishina
$600 at Saatchi Art

It’s flaming hair Barbie. I thought “real women” didn’t really look like this. Photoshop? Starvation diet? And what’s with the picnic while the ground is still thawing?

snow-luca-de-santis-saatchi

Lost in Thought  •  Luca De Santis
$400 at Saatchi Art

And here we get a guy. In black & white. Buttocks only.

And what’s this tortured dude’s issue? He took a wrong turn on the way to Starbucks? Lamenting the lack of hair gel in heaven?

First day of school photo. In Siberia. Please, someone cut that girl’s hair.

Walk of shame. Given her tan lines, she hasn’t seen frost like this in a while.

ARTmonday: 16 Obscured Cityscapes

As much as we love spending time in our little Florida enclave, surrounded by palm trees and ocean air, there is always something exhilarating about zipping back into the city on the Uber ride back from the airport. Sure, it’s not Manhattan (for one, it only takes ten minutes to travel from Logan to downtown Boston), but there are still bridges, and lights, a river, and a tall building or two in the Boston cityscape. It’s nice to escape to other environs, but urban landscapes are really where I prefer to be long term.

Taking inspiration from the cityscape with which we were met as we arrived home the other evening, I’ve pulled together cityscape artwork, but not straightforward postcard images (ick). No sunsets behind skyscrapers here. This cityscape art portrays views that are deconstructed or somehow obscured. It might be a scene enhanced by a reflection, shot from above, viewed from beneath a bridge or through a window, or made blurry by the rain or the photographic lens. Here are 16 pieces of cityscape art that celebrates the city, no matter which way it’s looked at.

ARTmonday: 10 Misty Landscapes

Misty landscape photography seems to combine the dewy feel of the heat and the starkness of the wintertime, to me anyway. I love a desolate winter landscape photo. Since I’m in a Florida for a few days, I was also drawn to a few of these other images which are tinged with a Southern feel. Here are 10 examples of misty landscape photography, from fields, to woods, to mountains, to sea.

ARTmonday: 20 Fun Food Artworks

With all the food art I perused to put together last week’s 20 Autumnal Artworks in honor of Thanksgiving along with the post I did for Matouk, Appreciating Autumn Through Art, I noticed there were quite a few examples of humorous, fun food artworks. You may not want to eat anything after this weekend, but there’s no harm in looking. Some of it may even inspire you to try snapping fun food artworks yourself, at least on Instagram.

ARTmonday: 20 Autumnal Artworks

I feel like fall just started, but really we’re fast heading into winter, with a few frigid days already behind us. The leaves too, are almost gone. The spectacular array of golds, reds, and oranges continue to amaze, despite having spent every single one of my autumns in a four-season zone. Even driving the kids to and from school is made better by the autumnal artwork outside my windshield.

I remember, though when I took the fall foliage for granted. (Gasp.) Obviously I didn’t think much about the pretty color leaves growing up in Connecticut. Sure, I pressed brilliant red leaves between sheets of waxed paper, and probably made leaf turkeys, too, but beyond that, didn’t give fall foliage a thought. Until college.

At Connecticut College, one of my closest friends, Jessica Biales (I’ve previously blogged about her children’s artwork and stunning gold jewelry), went cuckoo over the changing leaves. She would exclaim and effuse about their beauty, leaving me as baffled as my kids probably are when I point out the amazing leaf colors along the Charles River. She wasn’t from a tropical clime.

Rather, Jessica is a New York City girl through and through, with a deep appreciation for the autumn foliage that wasn’t quite as vibrant out her bedroom window along the East River, or in Central Park. I get it now. I guess good things do come with age.

Today’s roundup features 20 autumnal artworks, from an acrylic of golden birches to a desert landscape photo to Central Park in fall, seen from Columbus Circle. There’s also a  homey kitchen, plus fall harvest still lifes, and an abstract or two in perfect fall hues. I also pulled together a similar collection for the blog on Matouk, which I’ll link to when it goes up. Enjoy not just these autumnal artworks, but the real art of autumn outside your windows.

ARTmonday: Pools in Art

When we’re in Florida, I get to stare out at a pool when I work all day, until my son finally gets me to abandon my computer and venture in. (Mainly so I can throw the football with him. Yes, I can throw and catch a football.) At 92 degrees, it was bath-like and blissful. It’s funny, because until recently, my kids had only been swimming in outdoor pools a couple of times. Now, it’s such a huge treat having one right outside our door a few weeks a year. The condo complex has a bit of a retro feel too. Not exactly Miami Deco, or David Hockney mid-century modern, but  Here are 20 artworks with pools, starting with the classic Hockney.

ARTmonday: 23 Bird Artworks

Since I can’t stop looking at the gorgeous trees around here—yellow, red, orange—they’re so autumn perfect, I thought I’d share the little creatures who hang out in them.  I had a bird as a pet growing up. He was a beautiful gray cockatiel with a yellow head and perfect persimmon circles on his cheeks. He imitated the call of a whippoorwill and also whistled  that, “Hey you’re sexy, babe” whistle, which was pretty humorous.

ARTmonday: 25 Mountains + Icebergs

I’ve been sorting though my  art b0ard on Pinterest because it is overflowing with over 1300 pins. I already have separate boards for abstracts, sculptures & installations, nudes (though I need to pull this down because I keep getting warnings), female figures, and photography, but now I need to subcategorize even more, so I’ve created landscapes, and will probably move on to still lives and portraits. I’ve noticed I have an abundance of contemporary artwork, especially illustration, picturing mountains and icebergs. This is hardly a surprise, given the current craze for all things “geo” (triangles, facets, polyhedrosn,etc.). They’re appealing, and season appropriate, so here you go.
