Pattern in Islamic Art

My friend Dina sent me the following link to a beautiful website containing 4000 photographs of examples of Pattern in Islamic Art. If you’ve known me for long, you know how much I love pattern. Whether you are a graphic designer, collage artist, painter, or work with fabric, this website is an incredible resource worth bookmarking. Thanks, Dina!

His Face is His Canvas
On a lighter note, you might be amazed, amused, or shake your head at the artist on these pages. His is his canvas. I shall say no more.

The Passionate Painter in Antwerp: Alvaro Castagnet

If I were a watercolorist, this is the kind of watercolorist I would like to be. Bold, decisive strokes, rich contrasts, and economy of detail.

Enjoy your weekend — I hope it’s a creative one.
