New Artwork of the Day: Orchid Silhouette

From bold and bright to elegant and modern, today’s flower power pick comes to us courtesy of Corrine Ellsworth.

Corrine’s photograph Orchid Silhouette was so striking, it immediately stood out amongst all the floral images in our galleries. I could definitely see this chic photograph hanging on the wall of a city loft, above some Eames chairs and a Noguchi coffee table.

A graduate of Utah State University, Corrine is a graphic designer by trade who shares her stylish photos and bold abstract paintings with the world at her Artist Rising gallery. Drop by and see what’s new with this versatile young artist. Also, check out her Wallskin site, featuring some gorgeous wall-sized artworks and wallcoverings.

New Artwork of the Day: Blooming Cactus

The road to becoming a full-time artist is often not a straight point-A-to-point-B journey. Just ask Jennifer Lommers. This Pacific Northwest artist took a detour down the information technology career path before finding her way back to her first love, creating art.

Jennifer’s painting Blooming Cactus offers a bright, energetic take on this week’s “flower” theme. Her bold paint strokes and effervescent composition transform this painting into something much more visually compelling than just a simple picture of a cactus. Visit her Artist Rising gallery for more abstracts, landscapes and animal images from this artist’s atelier.
