When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Flavia Maria Pitts

Here's a Romanian artist who has posted all of 11 pieces on a blogspot site (flavia-pitis.blogspot.com). They seem simple enough. Soft portraits of children with a touch of magic realism going on. I suspect she's simply trying to approach issues of childhood and memory, so why are they kind of spooky? Are childhood and memory naturally spooky subjects? Possibly. Whatever else is going on here, I like it.
Click on these images. She posted fairly large files!
