I did a series like this, for poetry titles, a bit back in April this year (2021), and thought I really should do this and maybe a few others for the shopping season, and just to have as reference any time of year, with this one being for art 😊 🎨 👩🎨
To retweet, simply tap the tweet in the post & it should show up on your Twitter acct!
I’ll also list a direct link to the art title on Amazon –
It’s where I find this good stuff!! ☺️
Evidently there’s only a hardcover edition, but there’s a new 2nd edition of the above, at https://amzn.to/3Dwi1gj , and it’s an even better price than the original edition!
This is an art print of what got Impressionism it’s name – it’s practically still contemporary to me, in its freeform and expressiveness within a tight range of colors ❤️ It comes in lots of sizes and those familiar with how Amazon presents its pages, there’s “lots” of other impressionist work featured in the bottom half of the product page for some very nice browsing! Direct link is https://amzn.to/3dstPFK
Available in Kindle ( https://amzn.to/3dxg0FL ) and Hardcover ( https://amzn.to/3owd3fi ), which I think is a good thing. Some folks want to hold the book and feel the pages in their hands, and some prefer having the electronic digital file of the image (and in this case 100+ images!)
In my case, I ordered the free Kindle sample to my reader. I find the easy accessibility of both the text and images to my liking on a digital screen. I can tap and isolate an image, enlarge it and, via my iPad Pro, get a pretty darn good look at the work.
Here’s a tiny text excerpt from the free sample’s Forward I got today —
Abstraction allows the artist to capture shape, line and color, and also emotion. Barbara Benedetti Newton bases her paintings on the emotion she’s feeling. “I start each painting based upon my emotion of the day. The work begins with relating color to my feeling or state of mind. …I try to capture those thoughts to form an overlay of the primary emotion. That results in a visual expression of an in-and-out, back-and-forth exchange of emotions represented by colors, shapes, lines and textures in a sort of windowpane or layered effect.”https://amzn.to/3xYtTq2 – Art Journey – Abstract Painting: A Celebration of Contemporary Art
Ninth Street Women is so dense with inspiration of the progress of art, from the 30s into 60s, and a handful of the key women who fueled that journey, it’s hard for me to say how liberating it’s been for me to read these stories of those times and artists – but it had, and still is! Even as I’m still reading through it! Can’t recommend it enough 💕 It’s available in 4 formats, and this is the Kindle link, though you’ll find the other options available on that same page 😊 https://amzn.to/3douw2I
This book has moved me enough to search out more information about this period and artists, and these are some of my blog posts as a result of that ☺️

- January 19, 2022 – How I Applied Dianne Mize’s Art Tip, The Visual Path, To My Work-In-Progress, Part 1It began after reading then reblogging Dianne Mize’s most recent art tip, The Visual Path, plus some reading I’ve been doing in The Adjacent Possible, about listening to one’s creative needs and acting on them. I’d already begun a new violet lay-in, destined, I thought, to be called Violet Impressionist Abstract 1; all along the lines of my other mostly-or-all monochromatic impressionist abstract work I’ve posted about ( my red and blue samples further down ).
- January 18, 2022 – Reblog / Review : Working the Painting Language – The Visual Path, via Dianne MizeDianne’s continuing series of tips and samples of painting’s language of line and shapes and so much more, including, as per this reblog of her most current post, The Visual Path, have been a source of inspiration for me for quite a while now, and this is no exception. She provides not only the 2 examples in my header, but an entirely different style image, one from one of my favorite painters, John Singer Sargent, and ties it to the two simpler – yet in principle – similar images top of the page.
- January 17, 2022 – Art Delivery to Cypress Grill Austin for a Creative Arts Society Rotating Member ShowingI’m happy to post I’m placing my 1st piece of art work at a Creative Arts Society member venue in over a year and a half!
- January 16, 2022 – My Most Viewed Image this Past Week @FineArtAmerica, Fantasy Landscape – New 16×20 #LyricalAbstract #AcrylicPaintingFantasy Landscape is currently residing at the Old Bakery & Emporium in downtown Austin across from the Texas State Capital. It’s a super playful acrylic I didn’t realize would be “so much” a landscape as it turned out, lol! All part of the “discovery” process inside each artist, often call the landscape inside, probably in more senses than one, as Joan Mitchell has alluded to.
- January 15, 2022 – New 12×24 Inch #Acrylic Upload @FineArtAmerica – Blue Impressionist Abstract 1Third of my 3 uploaded acrylic color blocks, each 12×24 inches on gallery wrapped canvas, Blue gives me a triad of sorts, the other two paintings being red and yellow.

- January 14, 2022 – Painting + Capturing Photos of the Sides of 2 #ImpressionistAbstract Panoramas Accepted by Art for the People Gallery AustinA few posts ago I announced about my art audition for an upcoming show at Austin local gallery, Art for the People, and mentioned I’d had a couple of my Impressionist Abstract panoramas chosen! One, the red version, already had its sides painted, but the newer blue version didn’t, so I got to work right away. Like I tell folks who like hearing ’bout how I put these together, painting the sides almost always takes as long or longer than the painting! Why?
- January 13, 2022 – 2 New Works In-Progress : Good Conversation + Healthy Vines Happy Hearts – #AbstractPainting #LyricalAbstraction #TheAdjacentPossibleWasn’t sure what I wanted to paint this particular day, just really needed to 😊 I’ve been reading a creativity book, The Adjacent Possible; filled with good ideas, one of which emphasizes “just starting.” A concept the author calls zero to 1, which she explains is like this huge leap, from nothing, to something. She says it over and over, all different ways, and I understood it. First intellectually. Then emotionally. And today, physically.
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
