A Mix Between Nature, Fantasy, Beauty and Pain in Beautiful Artworks of Alanna Vanacore

Alanna Vanacore is an American artist born in the small beach town of Ormond Beach, Florida. At a young age, her passion for art flourished while watching her mother paint.

It was in these moments that she developed an eye for detail and color. Alanna went on to study drawing and painting, earning her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from The University of North Florida. Shortly after graduating, she decided to move to New York City to pursue a career in art. Her paintings, from the more realistic to the nearly abstract, showcase Alanna’s ever-growing range as an artist. Much of Alanna’s work invites playful humor into the everyday. She is currently living and working in Brooklyn, New York.

Frome the artist’s statement: “Simply put: I like to paint. To challenge myself but mostly because I’m so drawn to the process that I feel compelled to keep doing it. There are two sides to me creating art. One of them is really quiet. I think of my brain as a telephone wire. Endless conversations and connections going through but all I can hear is the quiet hum of electricity and the creaking noises in my neck when it gets tense and tired. The other side is me being a complete spaz. I dance, sing, crack jokes, talk in weird voices and listen to music really loud. I enjoy exercising the weird, silliness of life into my art. I paint what I feel or whatever is happening around me. Sometimes my thoughts are like mashed potatoes being shoved through a window screen, but other times they are hand delivered in a pretty package with a bow on top. My art is a documentation of my life and growth as a human.”

Beautiful Photos of the Lincoln Continental Mark V

The Continental Mark V is a personal luxury coupe that was marketed by the Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company from the 1977 to 1979 model years in North America. The fourth generation Mark series, the Mark V was derived from its Continental Mark IV predecessor, bringing an extensive update to the interior and exterior design. While only sold for three years, the Mark V is the best-selling generation of the Mark series, with 228,262 examples produced.

At 230 inches long, the Mark V is the largest two-door coupe ever sold by Ford Motor Company, with the 233-inch long two-door and four-door Lincoln Continental sedans (produced alongside it) as the only longer vehicle ever marketed by Ford.

Distinguished by its sharp-edged exterior design, design themes of the Mark V would be adapted onto Lincoln vehicles throughout the 1980s. For 1980, the Mark V was replaced by the Continental Mark VI. As the Mark series underwent downsizing in the interest of fuel economy, the Mark VI saw significant reductions in exterior dimensions.

All Continental Mark Vs were assembled alongside the Lincoln Continental at the now-closed Wixom Assembly Plant in Wixom, Michigan.

These Realistic Animal Paintings Show How We Neglect Them

We humans often have the tendency to forget that we’re alone on this planet. There are other living creatures that we often forget about or even worse, use them for our own purpose. This is an important issue that South Korean artist Young-sung Kim is trying to address in his work.

His oil paintings from the series called “Nothing. Life. Object.” look so realistic and lifelike, just like the problems he’s trying to show to the world. From fish trapped in glass bowls to frogs captured in jars, Kim’s paintings are representing a cruel and painful reality. He thinks that modern society is often forgetting about other living organisms, as a result of “advanced development of material civilizations.”

Richard Saunders Creates Giant Bushes In The Shape Of His Deceased Cat

Many of us know the feeling when you just terribly miss a pet you used to have. I sure do, even got a tattoo of my cat! However, 75-year-old Richard Saunders took it to a whole new level. The artist decided to express love for his cat, who died 5 years ago, by creating extremely surprising surreal images. In these images, plants from real places are replaced by giant bushes in the shape of his adorable cat Tolly.

Richard Saunders exclusively told Bored Panda the story behind his project named “The Topiary Cat”: “Initially I created these images just for fun. I had taken a photograph, in the grounds of a historic house, of a huge cloud topiary, and it occurred to me that I could fairly easily photograph Tolly in a position to match the shape of the bushes.”

Richard claims that after making the image and posting it on Flickr, it was stolen and his name was removed without any approval. The image ended up going viral on Facebook and people believed it to be a real topiary! Later, BBC did a story for their page and revealed Richard to be the real creator of these manipulations as he made more and more of them.

Richard has been a surrealist painter since he was a teenager and learned to use Photoshop over two decades ago in his job as an advertising Creative Director. He says: “The idea of creating The Topiary Cat, over eight years ago, while Tolly was still alive, was easily accomplished with skills I already knew. The images have become more complicated since, many taking days to produce, with tailor-made photos taken especially for them.”
