The thing that keeps me going is finding artwork that inspires me beyond my own expectations. to see something so epic, and surreal, that my mind is taken to new places. Today I found an artist, that actually made me have to stop and waste several hours of my day staring at image after image. Michael Cheval is a surrealist painter that paints beautiful realistic portraits, but also with surrealist qualities. He has several other paintings which are all arranged into different series that represent a specific theme; Nature of absurdity, illusion of absurdity, sense of absurdity, and several other themes. The themes are strange, to say the least, but still seem very appropriate and traditional. Almost as though they were taken from some fictional history book. there is no real way for me to identify or describe this artwork. You must see it for yourself. I am in awe of what some people can do with a paintbrush.
