VL Artist of the Day: VL Magazine Artist of the Day is Claire Bull: © Red Umbrella By Claire Bull © The Path By Claire Bull © Color Blocks By Claire Bull "Creative expression and free...
Today was a good day. The entire month of April was good - On the COVER (and inside pages) of Visual Language Arts Magazine for APRILSpring is here after a LONG winter (although it gave us time to create and be in the studio it was really tough on the old bones and heating pads with fireplace and warm knitted sweaters were a necessity ) and YAY for getting some color back to this gray brown world.
We saw the sun about five times through the whole winter. The rest of the time we saw big flakes of Snow and gray. BUT. In the deep cold with the white covering everything, it is silent and magical and there is no dampness and it does not hurt and there are no bears or critters so your dog can run free and the fireplace and the knitting and the sun sparkling on the snow. It is really really nice and crisp and clean and white and beautiful.
and another BUT... I am glad it is done. Welcome Spring and warmth and color and new growth and rain and sun and flowers. The paintings in this "Artist of the Day" featured are my Umbrella painting - It is a Mix of Rain and Snow falling on the Red Umbrella - and "The Path" is from Honey Harbour at Georgian Bay area in Muskoka where we all enjoy our cottage time and those beautiful pink granite rocks and evergreen trees, and the "Color Blocks" is an abstract work from my imagination.
I am honoured to be part of this magazine and featured here among so many talented artists.

I have been an "artist" since I knew how to hold a crayon. When I am out for a walk all I see is the color and where the branches lie and how the light hits them and where is the moss and what colors in the moss and how the bark shadows hit the tree and how the shadows hit the ground. The new flowers and how they shine and the shades of green in the leaves and the pinks of the flower with the curve of the petals. I am trying to capture that. But it is impossible to capture so I try to interpret it and I am glad you are liking it.
Please tell your friends and family and other art people about me as I find it really difficult to do the shows and am trying to work in the studio and just put it here online. We ship worldwide and Canada Post and internet are huge for artists like me.
Grateful to you and thanks for supporting me.
