Three Muses - Challenge 8 - Inspirational People

Marie is hosting the theme at the Three Muses this week and she has chosen Inspirational People. Thanks Marie.

Well I think you may have guessed that my inspirational person was Salvador Dali.

Wow, Ann, now I know who inspires you in your art!!!
(So far removed from my L S Lowry!!) Fantastic creation!

My first thought was "Well, I don't know who it was who inspired Ann, but he's obviously been dead a while!" I, too, love Salvador and his surreal art, Ann. This is a wondrous tribute to him! Kudos to you.

Alberta said...

What an amazing tribute to the esteemed Mr. Dali! His work is a source of endless fascination to me as is yours, sweetie. Seriously, this is a masterpiece and you are one talented lady.

Love your tribute to Dali, Ann! The "unzipped" graphic is pure genius, and he'd LOVED it! So nice to see your inspiration translated! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Lori Saul said...

Wonderful representation of Dali, beautifully composed! Fantastic!

I am having problems with my Internet Explorer versus the blogs. I distinctly remember typing a comment on your wonderful Dali piece but it isn't there. I think I said something like "it looks like Senor Dali has flipped his lid - in the nicest possible way, of course. Great Daliesque creativity, Ann. Your picture is delicious.

Eila A said...

Ann, you have really creeped into Salvador's skin (can one say like this in English?)! Your version of Dalian art is awesome - creepy and hilarious. Great artwork!
