The pandemic was tough but it was also a time I used to focus and work on my paintings which were eventually bought by collectors in Europe, US, Australia, and India.
Thankful to the Lord for his blessings.
Here's a thread.

Françoise Henry was born in Paris in 1902 & grew up in #France, where she studied art & archaeology. She came to Ireland in 1926 to research her thesis on Irish medieval carving, & became deeply fascinated with early Christian #Irish stonework and art.

From 1932 - 1974, Françoise worked for @ucddublin, during which time she published a number of major works on Irish art from the prehistoric period to mediaeval times.

Flexing w MASSIVE muscles, like @Schwarzenegger cerca 1985.
Smoking a bong on a couch together like teenagers.

Luboš Plný is a Czech painter and conceptual artist, usually classified as a creator of art brut ("raw art" or "rough art"), a label created by French artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture.
Plný is fascinated by medical iconography. An expert in the mysteries of anatomy, he devotes himself – when not drawing – to all sorts of performances where he confronts the limits of pain, which he experiences as an act of purification, transforming suffering into artistic work.
He incorporates organic materials, photographs from 19th century atlases, pictures of anatomical wax models, and clippings of models from fashion magazines in his work. These images form the foundation for his graphical compositions.

Collectors: It's not just about status or money, it's about supporting artists who have invested years into developing their craft. Artists have been overlooked for far too long, yet continue to pour into what they are passionate about. Artists make our world a much better place.
Being an art #collector, whether in #cryptoart, #nft's, traditional #art, or many other art forms - it must primarily stem from a love for beauty, skill, creativity, nature, meaning, and thinking. Great art makes us appreciate, connect, aspire, reflect, and adjust perspectives.
As collectors, we help to recognize these talents in original artwork. Collecting from underrated, undervalued, underappreciated, unknown #artists who display stunning aptitudes for creating is a joy and a privilege, as it communicates to artists that they are valued and seen.

In October, 2018 I attended the #MichaelJackson: On The Wall exhibition at the @NPGLondon Gallery with my mum.

We stood for a long time in awe of @MarkRyden's painting which we all are familiar with, soaking in the fact that this was the original #Dangerous cover painting.

My apologies for the lighting, flash photography was not allowed at the gallery. Here's the caption beside the painting, some of the text is in the next tweets with a couple of visual references & a video about the construction of the frame. 👇

I'd rather stare at a tree than...(insert most other activities) Here's a #timelapse of this painting, the first layers are acrylic so the yellow wouldn't muddy the other colors. There was a masking do people ensure a clean masking removal? #process
Materials: Paper Block B5 size, acrylic and gouache paint
Time: 5 hours
Feelings: Pleased that I was painting some trees (and making a gift for my sister)

This is one of the paintings from the ‘Water Lillies’ series with oil on canvas by the French Impressionist painter, Claude Monet. This was painted by him between 1914 - 1917, when the First World War was ravaging ImageImageImageImage
Between 1914 till his death in 1926, Monet completed 200 paintings (mostly large canvases)!!!He apparently painted quickly during summers when the light was good and filled in the details during winters, not letting his failing vision come in the way of such dynamic creativity
When asked how could he continue painting during such devastation, Monet said, “it’s the best way to avoid thinking of these sad times. All the same, I feel ashamed to think about my little researches into form and colour while so many people are suffering and dying for us.”
