Hyperrealism?! Challenge accepted!

Check out this site below for more amazing Hyperrealistic paintings. This really blows my mind to think that these are paintings. Maybe it isn’t suprising that someone could paint like that, but that someone would take that much time on one painting! I love to paint fast with broad brushstrokes and tons of emotion. Although after looking at some of these paintings I an intreaged by the challenge within them. “Can you paint like us?” the paintings taunt. I don’t know, I thought. But why stop at I don’t know? Why not find out? So like always, when presented with a challenge, I accept! I’ve already sketched out a painting and have started. Soon, I will post my first attempt at a hyperrealistic painting! Keep in mind that ATTEMPT is the key word here.


Eyes Open but Ears Shut

Eyes Open

Wow! I just heard Taylor Swift’s new song “Eyes Open” that she wrote for the Hunger Games movie and I am sorely disappointed. I have been looking forward to seeing this movie ever since I finished reading the book a couple of weeks ago. The story is made up of dark, very emotion packed scenes and this song comes out sounding like a high school freshman’s first day of school. I don’t get the feeling that it’s about a girl in her late teens who is being hunted by other teens and controlled by an evil Capitol.

Taylor says, “…it was actually refreshing to put on someone else’s emotions and draw from them, instead of from my own.” Well, Taylor, I think that this song sounds like all of your other juvenile songs.

What do you guys think? Let me know, cause I’m curious.
