This is my special holiday greeting of 2011. Whatever you celebrate, I hope that this image of Artists Poinsettia will help inspire you to see new, hidden meaning and inspiration everywhere.

Each of us actually sees the world differently from anyone else as our brains use our memories to see. For instance when we see a flower, such as a sunflower, or brain almost instantaneously compares the reflections of light it receives from the eyes to other similar reflections to discern that we are looking at a sunflower. Perhaps, like my brain, your brain touches upon memories of Sunflowers painted by Vincent van Gogh to decode the meaning of what my eyes see, whether I am conscious of the memory or not.
By seeing the works of great and inspiring artists, we are actually learning to see in new ways that can impact and inspire our lives.

Poinsettia with portraits of van Gogh, Da Vinci, Picasso, Warhol, Monet and Rembrandt

Artists Poinsettia by Judy Rey Wasserman

As you probably know I create art according to the tenets of Post Conceptual Art, and this art falls under the branch called UnGraven Image. Each and every stroke of the flower and Essence Portraits is a letter from the only font in the world that is binary, phonic and alpha-numeric, and thus best represents the attributes of the elementary physic’s strings, the tiniest pre-matter and energy of the physical universe. [See the You Tube video “Painting with the Big Bang of Genesis” to discover visually how this all comes together in a painting. Click:

Poinsettia Artists image

Poinsettia Psalm Artists combines the hand created artworks of Poinsettia Psalm 148 with the Essence Portraits of (clockwise from top) Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Rembrandt van Rijn, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and Leonardo Da Vinci. These artists are universally acclaimed as some of the top artists in the history of Western Art, plus each has uniquely inspired aspects of my work, which, except for Picasso, I have somewhat explained in previous blogs and article.

Artworks that combine handmade paintings or drawings into a new unique digital artwork are called “tradigital.”

More Inspiration

Many of the images used can be seen larger in articles and blogs, plus information as to their strokes and influence can be found in the links below:

In writing this message I was surprised to discover that although I mention Vincent van Gogh most frequently in my articles and blogs (notice his prominence at the top of the poinsettia!) as his work and writings have been the most profound influence on my work and even life, but I have never actually just focused upon him in a blog. This will be remedied early in 2011.

Picasso Note : this is the first time the Picasso Essence Portrait has been shown online and an upcoming blog will feature and explain it and also how his work helped lead me to my theory of Post Conceptual Art, including the branch of UnGraven Image.

Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, whatever you celebrate — I hope that you have a happy, fulfilled and joyous Holiday Season,
