The Art of Laura Vegys
I love promoting local talent. Today, it's Laura Vegys, another Toronto artist. I'm usually not too into watercolours, but I think her work is thought-provoking and well done. Or perhaps I've been swayed by the free magnets she was giving away at her booth at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibit held this past weekend. I mean...free magnets! Come on!
From her bio:
"I am a watercolor painter who loves melodramatic and tragic stories. I paint pictures that reflect my ideas about sad situations, isolated individuals and painful moments. I often channel my strong opinions about life through these images, but I love that people always make their own stories about what the images mean to them.
Apparently, she has an upcoming blog so if you're interested in finding out more about her, watch her website for more announcements. In the meantime, you can flip through her portfolio which offers a wide selection of paintings with subjects ranging from human to animal to fantastical.
