Surrealism... as you have probably noticed I have been leaning towards a little surrealistic approach to my journaling as of late. Something about the freedom of the unconscious has me so inspired.

Recently I came upon an amazing surrealist painter named Remedios Varo. She was born in 1908 in Spain and studied at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando. During her lifetime she lived in Paris, where she was influenced by the surrealist movement, and finally Mexico City where she lived and passed at the height of her career from a heart attack at age 55.

Although this is a documentary in Spanish, if you click on the subtitle icon and then go into the menu for automatic translation, you can some what get a gander on what they are saying. Another option to learn more about this inspirational artist is this website.

Apparently her medium of choice was oil paints on masonite panels which she prepared herself.  I am in love with the mystical qualities of her paintings. I hope you find inspiration in this wonderful artist.
