  • I love the unpredictability of watercolors. These are great.

  • Kristen

    Absolutely amazing.

  • ashley

    beautiful

  • Nothing like a good dose of mixed media! Brilliant

  • Glorious, wondrous, splendid.

  • Thanks very much to Jeff for the post and all the kind comments!

    • hey my pleasure Serena! i probably can’t afford originals right now but do you sell any prints of your work?

  • Striking colors and shapes. I can feel there is a dialogue between her depictions of women and those of Gustav Klimt’s, but Serena’s have a dramatic tone and urgency that are quite unique.
    Breath-taking.

  • Thanks again guys. No, I don’t have any prints available but feel free to check the flat files of Triple Base http://www.basebasebase.com . Prints are a good idea- I’ll let you know when I get that ball rolling!

    • Malene

      I love your paintings! Please make prints!

  • Gold?!?!? I’m not sure if I love it or think it’s super cheesy…either way it invokes a response which is a good thing.

  • Jess

    lovelyyy reminds me of Klimpt a bit.

  • I don’t even have words great enough to explain these pieces, WoW!
    people are beautiful..peace:)

  • LOU

    I love it!!

    I think knowing that she went to my college makes me more proud to be going there. She did a presentation today, at orientation, and I was honestly amazed by her work. And also astonished that I have seen her work on other blogs before. She inspired me. Even though I an overall a writer.

    • what college is that!

      • oh ok cool

  • Natalie

    Totally reminiscent of Klimt. Love it.

  • Love the texture and the tone.Brilliant!

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
