As I continue to be holed up here in the frozen tundra, I  heal myself with art therapy. While I have several worthy drafts in several stages of completion, I do not feel compelled to write. But I do feel compelled to share beauty and light.

Today’s post is devoted to the technique of pointillism. This technique was developed by Seurat and Signac in 1886, according to Wikipedia. While pointillism has not been widely used by many artists, I am showcasing works by a variety of those that heeded the call. Feel free to comment on your favorites. Also share with us ( me and Dexter and fellow litebeings) which types of paintings make you swoon or break out into a state of bliss.

 How many stars adorn the sky? How many cells divide within one day? How many rays of light are contained within one drop of paint? How much love is possible?

  3. Lovely, Linda. I remember this style from my Art History class way back when, so it’s such a fun flash-back reminder! What styles make me swoon … wow. I like the Pre-Raphaelites, the Hudson River School (Thomas Cole), and those ancient Flemish and Dutch masters who managed to get this unbelievable, almost photographic detail and portray light and shadow during a time of darkness and candle-lit everything! They were amazing. Art therapy for sure. 🙂 Thanks for the prompt! Love, Jamie

      Hi Jamie,
      Oh I dream to study art history. Some people have told me it is a drag, but I love the back story ( very moon in Gemini) behind the artists and how they lived, etc. Thank you for sharing your favs here with us! I also like the Pre-Raphaelites and am obsessed with the name Raphael. Perhaps we lived during this time period?
