I’ve just discovered a ‘new’ artist! Well, new to me that is. Get a look at this beautiful, vibrant still life.
Alfredo Gomez was born in 1964 in Guadalajara, Mexico and currently resides in California. He began painting at an early age and enjoyed his first public exhibition at age 20. Gomez is an artist dedicated to the traditional principles of art. He is self-taught and continues to study the Old Masters as well as the techniques by contemporaries. His favorite subjects are landscape and still-life, especially fruit. No matter his subject, Gomez captures it with warm, luminous realism. Alfredo’s paintings are full of passion and invite the viewer to pause and savor the beauty.
Even at a noisy gallery exhibition, viewing Tiffany’s paintings is a sublime experience. I get lost in the depths and layers and want to know what’s below. Exploring nature and its place in primitive and present day cultures, Tiffany sees what lies below. You can almost smell the mangroves and rainforest. Tiffany’s works are big, bold and colourful, and inspiration abounds in her local environment, the beautiful north coast of NSW, Australia.
“My work specifically examines the differing ideals between cultures who worship and those that neglect elements of nature,” she says.

Time to post something about art that inspires me. I’ve been a fan of Melbourne artist Nellie Zimmerman for a while and was fortunate enough a few years ago to be given a painting from her Pollen series for Christmas. The vibrancy of the colours, the textures, layers and depth of the land/city/seascapes that Nellie creates are awesome. Literally, awe inspiring. Wish I had a bigger budget!
