I heart art: Jonas Gerard

My latest art crush is courtesy of Jonas Gerard. The North Carolina-based artist is self-taught (there's hope for us amateur painters yet) and creates visually arresting abstract pieces using amazing color combos and pretty detailing. 

As if it isn't enough that his painting skills are off-the-charts-crazy good, he also works in mixed media and sculpture. Watch this interview where he explains his process and how he loves to paint to music (me, too). Now, to begin saving my pennies for one of his small pieces. A girl can dream, right?

Check out Jonas getting down during a live paint at Artizen Fine Arts Gallery in Dallas. He looks so happy!
