Gran Elefandret

This amazing sculpture is named “Gran Elefandret” and is created by Miquel Barcelo. A few days ago I was just walking around in union square and I come across this bronze elephant doing a standing on his trunk. I thought that is is just so incredible and abstract and totally realistic. Plus it must have been very hard to sculpt with it weighing so much and standing on a partially thin trunk and holding a very massive body.  The elephant was so realistic and I love the way the artist put the elephants wrinkled skin, drooping down because its up side down. “Pure genius” I say

Brooklyn Heights Promenade

So today I really felt like painting because it was an absolute beautiful day outside, so my mom said to me “Well if you want to go paint really good land escape I think you should go to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade.” and I was like ” What is that and where is it?”. She said that it was just at the edge of Brooklyn and it looks out over lower Manhattan”. Then I was like “Sweeeeeeet”. When I got there I was speechless, it was so beautiful especially with the sun looking over it. I set up my materials and began to paint. When you paint of draw something in New York everyone always loves to look over your shoulder and say “That is so amazing”. That is also one thing I love about doing my art work in public, you get a cowed of people. Even though it might seem distracting and you have to make shore that every line is perfect. You really start to take your time and really get in the good detail.

The first picture is what I was painting to day.

The other pictures are the steps I took to painting the land escape and I’m still not even close to being done

Colored pole

Ok so you would not believe what I saw like a few days ago. So here’s how it starts I was going over to Cooper Union to get some papers for this art thingy I’m doing and then all of a sudden I see this orange-plastic twist tie on a pole. When I stepped back there more diffent colored plastic twist ties. When together on the pole it looked like a neon colored rainbow. Then I looked all around me and see even more poles that had the plastic twist ties tied around them and each pole was a different rainbow. I just thought that this was a very amazing idea some one had. I think that the person who created this idea goes to Cooper Union but I don’t know who the artist is sorry. If u want to go check it out just take the 6 train and get off at Astor Place.
