These flowers blossomed overnight. They are so rare and precious. They don't seem to mind all the rain and seem a little bitchy. I wanted these to stand out with a cotton candy-like color. I could not get their little faces right, I knew I didn't want happy flowers, I wanted them dark and gloomy. I think the vines coming out of the stems gave them the final touch.
Some very sad clouds have moved in and they look like they've been hand stitched! I wanted some black crows to darken the mood, but crows aren't very cute. I decided to go with my very own version of black cute crows. The sky is coming together. Tomorrow will be another day.
So I'm sitting there listening to Milli Vanilli's Blame it on the Rain when inspiration hits me. Bam! What about a painting about just that- blaming it on the rain. My mind starts racing and I start the sketch.
I can see the entire thing in living color in my mind. As an ode to Camille Rose Garcia, whom I admire, I want to do it in a drippy, gloomy style. My favorite color is blue, so obviously, I choose that as my main color. I'm getting excited but I've got to go pick up Liam from the bus.
So excited to finally have my blog up. My name is Marybel Martin and I am an artist. I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. I will post work in progress on my blog so that you can see how my art comes to life. Enjoy!
I've been drawing ever since I can remember. My life has been quite an adventure that has always kept me inspired. My childhood home was always filled with magic and excitement. I have memories of mysterious seances in our living room. The supernatural and fantastical has always been with me and influenced my work. Having lived in Latin America as well as the U.S. has given me a unique perspective. I could always escape to magical make believe worlds with the stroke of my pencil. I strayed from art and studied law in Argentina for a few years only to realize that art was embedded deep in my heart. It took me a while to truly know that I had to follow my love for art. I am looking forward to exploring these wonderful places in my head and allowing the world to experience them through my art.
