If you think about all the old and used stuff that we throw away, you will realize that we produce nothing than trash in this world. Some things may not be useful to us anymore, but they surely can be used again by someone elseor we can reuse them is some other way. Heidi Annalise is an artist who won’t go out in the market and buy expensive art supplies in order to create her artworks. Her canvas is something as simple as a mint tin and the only thing she needs to spend money for is her paints and brushes.
Heidi is not your typical art school graduate, who knew that art was her destiny before she turned 18.
She left her normal 9-to-5 job and decided that art and especially painting was the job that she wanted to follow.
She moved back to Colorado and decided to follow her instinct, which said that inspiration would be somewhere over there.
The beauty of the mountains is obviously what inspired her and instead of using a canvas, she opted for mint tins.
Her art is a combination of realism and impressionism, which adds a pinch of fantasy to the real world.
Her mint tin artworks are like entrapments of the outside world into a closed space so that you always feel close to nature.
She chooses simple shapes that can be easily transferred into her tins and express the simplicity of nature.
Heidi says that painting and sitting on a hillside looking at the mountains is a form of meditation for her.
Nature is always going to remain the number one source of inspiration for artists. Some of them may not depict nature through their artworks, but they surely get the highest percentage of their inspiration just by looking out their window.
