Battlefield Showcase: A Work of Art

With Twitter being the new buzz of today, I thought it would be an appropriate time for me to share with you a little something a tweet led me to. Here you will find an extremely talented black, female artist that has transformed YouTube into her personal art gallery. I truly enjoy watching her blank canvas transform into her final vision. The process engages me and takes me on an unexpected journey as I wonder exactly where I will end up. In the end, I am left with her work of art and the freedom to explore its many possible meanings. This artist's name is Ladessa Sullivan (aka CandyAcidReign). An here is a taste of what she refers to as "speed painting". Enjoy!

Wow, what fun! That was so cool, thank you SO much for sharing. I loved the music too! I've taken "progress" pictures of paintings in the works but this was incredible. I went to her gallery and saw several of the videos - what a nice "tour" - I feel refreshed!

*Big Smile* I had to come by to thank you for your support, and tell you that I really appreciate you for sharing my work with others. I'm currently working on a new painting & video, and I hope to see you around. I don't say this often, but there aren't many black female visual artist doing what I've been trying to do & the support means everything. I hope it inspires, and also sheds new light on who we are. Once more, Thank you so much for the blog and I wish you the best that life has to offer.

@Emani Thank you for stopping by. Your love, enthusiasm and support for your sister(I'm assuming) is extremely beautiful. I see what you mean when you say that she is an "artist in every form". I see that in addition to creating beautiful paintings that she writes songs and poetry. A true talent :)
