Blaine Fontana is one of those artists who just makes me want to go paint something immediately.  His work, which he describes as ‘urban-contemporary’ is full of organic forms and themes from nature, and many of his paintings depict beings called Templings – neither male nor female, neither happy nor sad – who they are and what they mean is open to interpretation.  He draws  inspiration from his childhood backdrop of acres of Seattle forest, and his roots as a grafitti artist.

His blog – Fontanas’ Backyard

How much visualising would I have to do to manifest one of these babies in the driveway of my (future) eco-house…?  Sleek, sexy, silent, carbon fibre body, all electric so no emissions… one day, it will be mine. Oh yes.

Well, a girl can dream… 🙂
