I loved to do puzzles when I was a kid. Once in awhile you would see a photo with several hidden elements in it that you had to find. I would not give up until I found every single one.
I really like Henri Rousseau and his funny animals and jungle paintings. I did a lot of research on his work for this composition. See if you can find the 35 animals that are in this painting. I had a blast painting this one but with all of the details it was never ending.
This a fun animal art print for everyone, kids and adults and surely a great conversation piece. Have fun!
Here is the list:
White Bird Squirrel Robin Bird Ape Owl Giraffe Hummingbird Indian Flute Woman 3 Butterflies 3 Lions 4 Monkeys Snake 2 Raccoons Frog Cobra Bunny 2 Mice Cat 2 Parrots Ladybug Ant Caterpillar Turtle Big Bird Dog
I think the best part of working on this one is the perspective and of course painting with Peter Max is surely never boring. Love him!

I remember seeing Marc Chagall at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the 80’s. I fell
in love right there. I kept feeling the urge to touch the paintings. They drew me in. The canvases were huge, romantically lit and full of emotion and passion. I had a head set
on explaining each painting as we moved through the exhibit. I was overwhelmed with inspiration and had tears in my eyes at the end of the exhibit. That week,
I saw the exhibit four times.
Marc’s love for Bella is a true love story and will surely be one of the best. She was his muse and inspired him forever even after her death. This painting is all about Bella and Marc and portrays how they felt about each other. Excerpts are my impressions of
Marc and Bella from his work as they float through Lovers Lane.
Marc Zakharovich Chagall 6 July 24 June] 1887 – 28 March 1985) was a Russian French Artist-An early modernist, he was associated with several major artistic styles and created works in virtually every artistic medium, including painting, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints.
After he married Bella the lovers sought each other, embraced, caressed, floated through the air, met in wreaths of flowers and loved each other for life.
Bella swiftly became Marc’s muse and continued to visit his canvases for the rest of his life. Famously, he often depicted himself and Bella flying together, as if their shared joy had such physical force it countermanded the law of gravity itself.
The Blue Sky in this painting represents the color of Mar’s eyes:
Bella’s influence never went away – it permeated everything he did even 20 years after her death. In her memoirs, Bella wrote of their first meeting: “I was surprised at his eyes, they were so blue as the sky … I’m lowering my eyes. Nobody is saying anything. We both feel our hearts beating.”
Until her death, Bella appeared in some of his most famous works, including “Bella with White Collar,” 1917 which is in the back ground of this painting nearest to the blue sky.
Though Chagall remarried in 1952, his second wife, Valentina Brodsky, rarely appeared in his work, and Bella continued to act as his “Inspirer”—his lifelong muse.
Before Frida Kahlo reached her 25th birthday, she had contracted polio, survived a horrific bus accident and endured a traumatic miscarriage. However, the loss of her baby — compounded by the alienation she was experiencing shaped her artistic vision and propelled her career forward.
Her miscarriage and unfulfilled desire to have a child became a major theme of her work.
The miscarriage also influenced Rivera to change a panel of one of his murals that he was painting at the time. Instead of an agricultural scene the panel shows a baby inside the bulb of a plant.
'She felt so disheartened because she would have loved to have a little Dieguito, but her dream did not come true.
