“You’ve got to care about prints. You’ve got to care about woodcuts, lithographs and etchings. You can’t care about whether they sell or whether anyone feels the way you do about your images. I love printmaking so much I try not to care about anything beyond my ego. I keep going because, like the woman who swallowed the knives and nails, I can’t stop. I’ve put my life into it.”

Contrasting Styles and Materials in the Paintings of Zachary Walsh

by Danny Olda Posted on March 26, 2014
The artwork of painter Zachary Walsh is firmly rooted in a portraiture tradition.  His graceful paintings seem to have a classical sensibility as his subjects are faithfully rendered.  However, Walsh also employs many contrasts which makes his work decidedly contemporary.  His delicately worked oil paintings are adorned with cut out and collaged images.  The smooth well worked brushstrokes are coupled with expressive painterly strokes and flowing dripping paint.  Also, his subject matter mixes old and new, mythical and Biblical themes with modern scenes and people.

Oh hell yes, these are gorgeous.

One of my favorite parts about traveling and exploring a new city is making a mental map after a few days of metro-ing, walking and constantly re-orienting. Being able to orient yourself in a new place is something I’ve always found really satisfying. As if I can put that city in my mental scrapbook after I’ve cataloged its mind-map. So far I’ve got 8/15 on here, and man Tokyo looks like a trip.

“I can get my head turned by a good-looking guy as much as the next girl. But sexy doesn’t impress me. Smart impresses me, strength of character impresses me. But most of all, I am impressed by kindness. Kindness, I think, comes from learning hard lessons well, from falling and picking yourself up. It comes from surviving failure and loss. It implies an understanding of the human condition, forgives its many flaws and quirks. When I see that in someone, it fills me with admiration.”

Just finished watching A Room with a View and the scenes of Italy and Florence made my heart squeeze tight. How close and far images of the Duomo and the countryside and the streets of Firenze seem.
Mi manchi l’Italia.

Finished my 2nd edition and I’m happy with it and feel so much better about life and art and a little less stressed than I was this morning. Will take a picture of the new babies tomorrow!

Watching Ever After in my new V-day socks from Mom while drawing layers for screenprinting and eating shit-tons of ice cream.

All that’s missing is a glass of rose wine. Mmmhmmm.
