Today is International Artists Day!

Today is International Artists Day! According to daysoftheyear.com, International Artists Day was founded by Chris MacClure, a Canadian artist who specializes in the style known as ‘Romantic Realism’. He created this day to bring recognition to the world of art, and to celebrate all the ways that artists express their own special view to life.

The first records of our world were captured in paintings, sculptures, and music that helps us  to understand our history.International Artists Day also honors current creative souls who will leave a record for the future that can’t be captured in history books. The anguish and joy of the human soul is portrayed through the haunting tones of a melody, violence and fury caught in a photograph, or the serene gaze of a statue staring off into eternity.

Help celebrate all forms of art today and our collective creative spirit!

Anguish and joy of the human soul is portrayed through haunting tones of a melody, violence and fury caught in a photograph, or the serene gaze of a statue staring off into eternity, according to Days of the Year (www.daysoftheyear.com).

French Clown (shown above) came completely from the imagination. French Clown depicts a funky, cheerful and mustachioed clown holding balloons and celebrating life (“joie de vivre”) through symbolic imagery, vibrant and uplifting colors.

French Clown was painted using a very good New Belgium Rolle Bolle from New Belgium Brewing Co. in Ft. Collins, Colorado.
