This is some fine art from a 12 years old JJ. My mother had framed it. After she passed away I took this as a memory. Painted with Crayons.

^^I thought it was interesting that he is known for doing this sort of artwork, self portraits but obscurred.

Here is Pablo Picasso's first and last self-portrait...makes me wonder...how would I portray myself? How would you? Fascinating thoughts...

In 1894 Akseli Gallen-Kallela painted “The Symposium” meaning a meeting or gathering. It also refers to Symposion, the name of the group of Finnish artists in which Gallen-Kallela was a leading figure. The artist himself can be seen in the upper left corner of the painting.

He also portrayed his friends, Oskar Merikanto, Robert Kajanus, and Jean Sibelius, suddenly glimpsing something profound in the middle of heavy drinking. The theme was inspired by an evening at the Hotel Kämp, where the artists often congregated. Here they could discuss their thoughts and ideas in a relaxed atmosphere.

When the painting was unveiled, people were scandalized by the drinking, and little thought was given to the symbolism of the work. On the other hand, everyone understood that Gallen-Kallela was a serious artist who did not create watered down art", says Leena Ahtola-Moorhouse, Chief Curator at Ateneum Art Museum in Helsinki.

Ahtola-Moorhouse explains that Gallen-Kallela wanted to impress with his art while at the same time revealing something of the creative process. In the sketch a “forest of meaning” can be seen in the background. This artistic element described the imagination of his colleagues. In “The Symposium” the phoenix wings can also be seen as symbolizing the miracle of creation.

In addition to Gallen-Kallela, legendary Finnish composer Jean Sibelius and other young talented artists at the time were inspired by the national awakening to create something really new, something Finnish. The gatherings of artists at the Hotel Kämp were based on a genuine need and desire to exchange ideas.

“It was believed at the time that certain forms of art work in synthesis, each complementing the other. Accordingly, the creativity described in "The Symposium” also represents companionship and collaboration", Ahtola-Moorhouse explains.

Here's a switch! From artist Angela De La Vega, this portrays how I feel when I'm creative and happy!

^^ mind-blowing...

Here's another...This is Love by Ukrainian artist Alexander Milov (link for an article and other artwork)

The Burning Man festival in Nevada in 2015 was full of wonderful art, including amazing sculptures on a massive scale. But one sculpture that was a favourite among the thousands of people there was made by Odessa artist and sculptor Alexander Milov. The sculpture called Love features two wire frame adult figures, sitting with their backs to one another, while two child figures inside the adults simultaneously reach out to one another.

"It demonstrates a conflict between a man and a woman as well as the outer and inner expression of human nature. Their inner selves are executed in the form of transparent children, who are holding out their hands through the grating. As it’s getting dark (night falls) the children start to shine. This shining is a symbol of purity and sincerity that brings people together and gives a chance of making up when the dark time arrives." ~ Alexander Milov
