Beauty is Healing
24 x 18″, acrylic, auto paint, acetone finish on canvas $430
I was talking with artist Keith Kimmel the other day and something he said struck me, he described beauty as "healing." Well, how obvious, and yet I had never quite put these two words together like that. Keith is passionate about creating narrative art. This makes his images complex and exciting, edgy and entertaining. The viewer is invited into the image to explore their own perspective. I really like this image above. For me, this sensual image brings forth sounds and smells, as well as visual delight. What are your thoughts on this painting? To view more of Keith's wonderful work click here.
