#AZCreatives: the local artists who inspire us

Through a mix of mediums, formats and perspectives local artists illuminate the unknown, color the previously black-and-white and add depth to our understanding of our surroundings, our lives, circumstances and more. Through our research process for the Thought provokers series we’ve come across so many works of art that have inspired us and we’d like to share some of those great examples of visual and performing arts, photography and other creative works with you below.

The #sphynxcat is complete!..or just about minus some more details. This is #shrimplypibbles. I was inspired to paint a #cat as I haven’t in a while and couldn’t resist doing such a mysterious cat that I know nothing about, hence my portrayal of a surreal environment. I wanted to create something with an old world feel with lots of color. #hairlesscat, I hear they have skin like a peach and love attention. Their ears are 2”-3” long, a bit exaggerated in the painting. Still thinking of a title. Feel free to suggest any in comments!

I feel closest to God when I'm sitting in nature taking in His beauty. There is no better artist in the world than Him, and He shows me how much He loves me with every wildflower, pine tree, and towering mountain 🌄⠀ It's as if every gentle breeze, ray of sunshine, and fluffy cloud are in constant worship of their Creator, and I love being right there with them praising His name 🌻⠀ Where do you feel closest to God? 💛 "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." Psalm 19:1⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #Godisgood #Psalm191 #naturephotographer #northernarizona #arizonanature #discoverarizona #instagramaz #LifeIsGoodArizona #downtownflagstaff #travelphotooftheday #NAU #thevisualvogue #arizonasbest #ArizonaIsGorgeous #conquerarizona #ExploreArizona
