Ivey Hayes and Alaagy

Today, when I need a little more vibrance in my day, I’ve chosen to show off the lively painting of Ivey Hayes.

Pecan Pickers

I love this piece for its amazing color palette, for the simplicity of the moment it captures, and the long elegant lines which I’m now realizing are a very common feature in artwork that I like.

When I first saw a collection of Ivey Hayes’ work, I thought I might already have a piece of his work in my home, because this piece has a similarly warm, vibrant feel to it.

The Rhythm of Life

But it turns out this is the work of Alaagy, a totally different but also fabulous artist from Ghana whose work I also love. Bonus artist for your viewing pleasure today, enjoy.
