Arouse your summer senses

It’s getting to be that sad part of the year when the summer season begins to wind down and slip into early fall. Kids are heading back to school, evenings allow for open windows rather than AC, and suntans are beginning to fade. Don’t you wish there was a way to capture and keep that wonderful, intoxicating & joyful feeling of summertime? This week we are featuring another group of skilled artists that have signed up to become a part of Blink Art Resource Guide

Here’s a sneak peek at some of their work and while your at it take a look at some of the PERKS of becoming a part of Blink!

Believe it or not, the essence of the season can be contained in a work of art that brings forth the same happiness and peacefulness as the summer.

Light and nature are such popular sources of inspiration for artists, and rightfully so. So many beautiful emotions can be tied to these two things. The sunlight in the morning and throughout the day, is different than the sunlight in the evening. And don’t forget artwork inspired by nature, can also have the effect of brightening up a room whether it is hues of green or other beautiful colors from nature, an artwork like this can do just the trick.

Summer has a certain energy and cheerfulness, but it also has a warmth and relaxation. To keep the warmth of the season lingering long after back to school time, choose a work of art that captures your favorite things about summertime. It will help you escape…even with cooler days to come.

The Beauty of White

What is it about white that we love so much? From our smiles to our diamonds—there is something utterly alluring about the purity and freshness of white. The most fantastic thing about a completely white space is that it is simply a blank canvas for us to add splashes of our own expression! This week we’ve decided to feature some of the talented artists that have decided to become a part of Blink Art Resource Guide

Take a look at their work and while your at it take a look at some of the PERKS of becoming a part of Blink!

Striking Accord

When you are working with a vibrant color palette in a single space, white is the perfect way to balance and ground the design. White works as a neutral ground when the accompanying artwork in the room is busy. Any piece that can seem overwhelming in composition or color is easily offset by the purity of a white foundation. Why are the walls of galleries and museums white? This is the best way to create a visual background and foreground. White spaces are one of the best environments to display your favorite pieces of artwork. All the focus will be on the artwork. If you want something to truly be showcased—or to be the focal point of a space—white accents or walls will really make your pieces POP!

White Knight

White is an extremely romantic color (or…really, the absence of color…but, you understand). Any light that filters into a space with a significant amount of white will be reflected and diffused, brightening the room tenfold. This can make a relatively small room feel much larger. White is soft, airy, and cozy—it’s the color of clouds, breaking waves, and whipped cream!

Let Me Count the Ways

White is simply transitional. It has a wonderful way of allowing for and accommodating any style. Based on the lines and layout of your design and the style of artwork you choose, your alluring white space can be contemporary or traditional, cottage, country, or urban chic. White spaces also permit you to change the look of the room as often as you please. Without having to worry about clashing colors, you can rotate your artwork at any time! You can have a painting for every season, or feel confident whenever you find your tastes changing from one design style to another that the overall look will still work. White is the clean slate that lets your favorite pieces shine center stage!

“Print promotions have been so successful for me. I was in another high-end publication, very similar to Blink, and received over $250,000 in new business, so when I got a call from Sandy, I was really excited. I love doing work for hospitals, as well as other projects, and my main goal is to put a smile on my clients faces!”

“I have been looking for a venue that specifically targets the design world, and Blink does just that! I believe BLINK is going to be such a great channel for my artwork to be seen by design professionals who know best how to connect my sculptures with their clients.”

BARRY ENTNER | GLASS | FULL PAGE

Barry Entner fullpage

“Blink connects a variety of vetted artists to designers and galleries nationwide. Unlike other sites that contain thousands of artists, Blink contains fewer and better choices to allow the designer, or gallery, to zero in on a piece of art for their clients. Whether using the site or the catalog, the connection between artist and client is more direct and effective when using Blink.”

-Barry Entner www.barryentner.com
