"Adopting a Child won't change the world; but for that Child the world will change."

Every now and then, I find artwork that is just stunning, out of the ordinary, MUST HAVE. I found some today, via a link from another blog.

Mall The Artist, is a 30 something yr old Fillapino gal - and ABSOLUTELY AMAZING artist. Check it out. Mall, if you're reading - you will go a long long way with your art. You are amazing.

I have trouble drawing a stick figure! So I'm always looking out for extraordinary work for my walls - we picked up this beauty in Bali, in 2006 -

I was mesmerized by this painting. Its huge, about 2.5m across x 1.5m down. If you look closely at her eyes, there are camels by a well in them. I love my red lady. I now have to buy a red or black lounge suite to go with her!!! (we currently have a very old pink velvet lounge suite that my Gran gave me when she went into a unit/apartment 15 years ago!!! I'm ready to upgrade.)

If you know of any other great artists, please leave a link or web address in comments. My current fancy is, paintings of asian children. (geez that sounded a bit dodgey, eh?!!) Children playing etc and FULLY CLOTHED!! I love how Mall's work has that fantasy/fairyland feel about it. Gorgeous.

My favorite is "Babu and his kitten Abu: Summer". I love art that isn't massed produced. When we go on cruises they try to sell everyone computer generated pieces for $1K. I think that is silly. Pencil on wood is pretty cool :)
