Everyday Art 

Social Experiment

There have been several scientific studies on how art enriches our lives. 

According to Professor Semir Zeki, neurobiologist at the University College of London, when you stare at great artworks, the part of your brain that is stimulated is the same as when you fall in love.

 

 I want to conduct a less scientific more grass roots experiment.

 

A simpler approach by asking everyday people to engage with me in a social experiment.

My goal is reach people who are perhaps not art experts or regulars at art galleries and museums.  So I am sending out an open invitation to anyone who would like to participate.

 

Before you decide if the everyday art social experiment is for you, here is the overview

 

My name is Linda Finstad and I am an artist 

Starting January 8th 2020 I intend to create a new painting every day for 100 days  - yes that means I will create 100 paintings.  The paintings will be a mixture of subjects and assorted mediums.

 

If you choose to participate, I will send you the painting of the day to your e-mail address along with what inspired me to paint it and how it was created.

 

At the end of the project you be asked to answer a couple of questions regarding the art and how it impacted your day.  It’s that easy!

 

I am  searching for 100 people to be a part of this social experiment. Who would be willing to receive a painting a day.

(no strings - no sales - no hidden agenda I promise) .

 

To participate and receive a fresh new painting in your inbox every day add your name and e-mail to the contact box below

It's as simple as that.

The Everyday art project started on Jan 8th  - but you can still be a part of this social experiment  - just sign up.

As each painting is completed I will add it to this page. 

Day 1 - Coffee art attack 

The Original paintings are for  sale, however
The price does not include shipping.
Note: Some larger pieces are pick up only. 

The look on the face of the subject (you) made me smile.  It's clear that this is your joy and it shows in your art.  The coffee medium is pure genius - I think a LOT of people live for coffee and so can appreciate the beauty you create with something we enjoy every day.  Coffee=joy and the depiction in this art = joy <3

I also like the caption. You could also say "Every day is a new opportunity to SEE something beautiful"  You've created a piece of art with a coffee stain - something we generally look at and wipe away to "keep our homes beautiful"  The artist in this  piece is completely oblivious to what could be construed as chaos around her.  It doesn't matter though because all she sees is beauty.   We need a lot more of "seeing the beauty all around us."  In the smallest things.
