MGoW - Artist Spotlight -Sarah Valsheim

This idea came from Chelle over at Persephone Reads. She does a feature aptly named I ♥ This Art which I thoroughly enjoy.
As a result I thought I would periodically spotlight a piece that calls to me...moves me...stirs my emotions in some way. A work that I believe needs to be shared :D
Todays Artist Spotlight Is...

Solitude


by~Sarah Valsheim
Ahhh, the bone structure...the cut of the jacket..the silvery grey hair...the hair, did I mention the hair! What can I say, I'm a sucker for grey haired men ;)

 I was actually torn between two pieces who turned out to be the same character, Gen. So I added "Away" below. It's full of detail, the poles and the wires..I especially love the area around Gens' feet :D

When I asked Ms. Valsheim If she'd like to add anything about herself in this post she replied, "Well.. what can i say? :D I'm a self taught artist, currently i live in Hungary with my fiancé until he finishes his studies. I plan to publish an ArtBook in the near future :) I think that's all >.< omg i can't write much about myself xD
Thank you very much for the feature <3"
So she's modest and gracious as well as being incredibly talented :D
Thank you Sarah, and I wish you all the luck in the world.

BTW, love the new look!

Hi Kelly,

Thanks for sharing this. Good Stuff!! Makes me want to breakout my fantasy art card collection. I have not thought about those in a while. Have a great week.

Take care,
Steve

Beautiful artwork. Do you know if it's based on a particular character in a book?

I like the new look of your blog!

Melissa: TY ;) The bottom one was my first choice. Love that red scarf :D

Steve: Thanks so much. Break out that collection ;) And a great week to you as well :D

Cath:You know, I don't know. I only e-mailed her to get permission to feature her art. It looks very final fantasy-esk :D
Thank you, I'm still playing around with it a bit, but it's been great fun:D
