HERE IS A QUESTION FOR YA'...............DOES LIFE IMITATE ART OR DOES ART IMITATE LIFE?




TUILERIES GARDENS -- PARIS




 
PUFFINS........IN ALASKA






FLOWERS.........IN MY LIVING ROOM

 

Seeing so many beautiful pictures out there on all your wonderful blogs has made me ponder this fact.  Do you see the vignette in a picture and then arrange or do you arrange and then take a picture of the vignette??????

HAVE A ART FILLED DAY MY FRIENDS!!!

Love,

Jo

  1. Hello Jo... your questions always make me really stop and think... but I DO know the answer to this one... I arrange my little vignettes THEN take a photo... I want mine to be "mine" alone... they may not be the most spectacular vignettes, but they are "Moi"! xoxo Julie Marie

  2. I think art immitates life. I am always inspired by nature, and the beauty of things that surround us every day. For instance, you see a beautiful light fixture with perhaps crystal leafs or an abstract form, but the glow within reminds os of a sunset dancing across a tuscan vineyard, , or an island paradise..art immitating life. The soft pastels, whites and creams, all remind us of soft, gentle breezes, perhaps a babies smell, a childs smile..art immitating life.. Just my opinion, a very good question Jo, one could argue it both ways. Christel

  4. Well I did not know I was going to have to use the ole brain when I came by for a visit. lol
    My first thought was art immitates life. Isn't that where beautiful art comes from is our lives.
    Came by to catch up on your site and to say hello

  5. Art imitates life; so many things I enjoy are nature inspired! It can be argued both ways...
    tough call..great question~

  6. Great question, Jo. I usually see a vignette and take a picture, but lately I have been making some to photograph and that makes things change pleasingly!

  7. What a philosophical question! I'm not sure. I think that life influences art

    I love the DoDo painting by the way, who is it by?

  8. O.K. friend......I have always called this bird a Puffin.....but perhaps it is a DoDo bird, altho, I thought they were extinct.

    Anyway, the painting is by a local watercolor artist who lives in Sitka, Alaska. His name is Keith Greba.

  9. I do both!
    make a picture, take a picture, paint a picture....artful living is where it's at...and there is art happening all around us in creation....the vignettes are there for the taking!

    great post....nice art work too!!!

  13. I think they imitate each other, which I like. Thanks for stopping by my blog and your sweet comment on my birdcage! Have a wonderful weekend.
