I am a mother, a grandmother and a contemporary realist painter currently living in Montana. I was encouraged to be an artist when I was younger due to some sad events in my life. Through this experience I started to learn and understand how much of an impact being an artist and the art world in general could have on a person if given a chance. Later, I wanted to be a seascape painter and went to school where I received my Associates in Fine Art/Humanities (2007) and have been able to continue my artistic education through books, the internet and personal experiences. Today I do not just paint the ocean but I paint anything that inspires me. Through my artwork, I want to encourage happy thoughts, happy memories and positive perspectives in order to stimulate a happy heart within my viewer whether it be from a nature scene to something as simple as a favorite coffee cup. - Frankie Stockman 2021

You call that art part 1

Artist: Rebecca O'Flaherty, The Monet of Maggots!

When creating her paintings, she lets maggots do the work for her and then calls it her own. She places the maggots in nontoxic paint (does it matter? Maggots eat everything and are fine) and lets them move around on a piece of white copy paper. Here they make little color trails. 

Her artists statement: "The activity usually begins with some measure of skepticism or disdain, but the maggots are quick to win over the critics." 

What do you think??

So interesting. I'd love to hear what my sister-in-law would think about this. She's an art major.

@ Elisabeth It really depends on what kind of art the artist is really into. Me, I do not see it as art.. Not at all. But there are a lot of others who do. So I am curious what she would say too.. Let me know..
