Art Friday: Rob Hefferan


Art Friday: Rob Hefferan

This artist knows how to paint satin as if it was real - I just want to reach into the painting and touch the fabric, it looks so soft and rich. However, a word of warning, many of his other paintings are quite sensual and not suitable for children.  I haven't included any of those in this collection.

  1. I share your enjoyment of Herreran's pictures, Jo. In fact, I've got a pretty good collection of his work in my files. I don't believe I've ever seen anyone who could match his elegance, but as a pianist, it was the grand piano paintings that first grabbed my attention.

    My latest addiction is something called "naive" art. Have you ever heard of it, Jo? I've always been crazy about American folk art and this is similar, but with a more South American flavor, I guess. Not sure exactly how to describe it. This website features a lot of naive art: http://naiveartonline.com/ The icons on the main page aren't very pretty, but click on some different artists, then enlarge their paintings. And if you're already familiar with this, just delete!

    1. I have heard of naive art and it's a great idea for one of my art Friday's. I've seen it in relationship to Mexican art . I like the string colours as I'm a big fan of bright colours in art !!

  2. These are amazing! Not real keen on the shoulderless clothing, but the textures of the fabrics and furniture etc is amazing! He does really well with light and details, too. Danny was very impressed with the chandeliers and building materials and furniture. Dolly loved the fabrics. :) Funny how the things they're more interested in popped out to them in those paintings!

    1. He does light very well as it floods across the room and I agree with Danny, the materials such as the floor look so real - the detail is amazing. I am with Dolly, the fabric is amazing.

  3. Wow, these pictures look so real, I can't believe they are paintings. What an incredible artist. I wonder how much time it takes to create pieces of art so beautiful. Thank you for sharing this artist with me. Blessings to you.

  4. Wow, these are stunning! Thanks for introducing me to this artist! I am partial to the one with the piano but some are so realistic, it's hard to tell if it's a painting or a photograph. Thanks for sharing with Small Victories Sunday Linkup. Pinning to our linkup board and hope you found some great posts to visit this week!
