Carrots, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on board, 7"x5"
Paul Cezanne once said “The day is coming when a single carrot, freshly observed (in a painting), will set off a revolution.” He was right! The daily painting movement has started a revolution in the way art is created and marketed today. You can see some of the daily painted carrots here, here, and here! There's even a carrot coloring page you can print (scroll down) for you here if you want to color your own!
The Painting a Day movement began in the United States in early 2004 and quickly spread around the globe. Using the public domain of the internet, artists are able to interact directly with the viewer changing the traditional way of marketing fine art through galleries. In addition, artists who traditionally worked alone are able to interact with their contemporaries around the world and share techniques, ideas, and camaraderie through technology.
The daily paintings of many of these artists are some of the finest representational work being done today. The work has become very collectible, being appealing in quality and subject as well as price to a wide range of art collectors who want to own original art.
Sometimes it's nice to vary a little from the Everglades! I paint nearly every day and post new, small daily paintings on the internet three times a week. I’m pleased to be recognized as a member of this group. Have a great weekend!
