Oddball realism, hyperrealism, surrealism and minimalism

Realism (or naturalism) in the arts is the attempt to represent subject matter truthfully. Hyperrealism is a genre of painting and sculpture resembling a high-resolution photograph. Surrealism is a cultural movement who’s aim was to “resolve the previously... read more
Pop art meets surrealism

Pop art meets surrealism

Its a meeting of the minds, where Andy Warhols pop art meets Salvador Dali’s surrealism. Today’s modern artists are capturing a unique blend of vintage pop, creating a whirlwind montage of symbolism and iconic historical moments and developing a melting... read more

Relaxing pink art exists! In hindsight of my art appreciation this week I noticed I had inadvertently selected a range of art which was relaxing, pink and somewhat odd. That discovery led me to explore a whole world of relaxing pink art .. surprisingly the concept is...
The art of antique jewelry

The art of antique jewelry

There is a unique master-craftsmanship appeal about antique jewelry, I sometimes feel this art has been lost to the higher cut polishes and finishes of today. The art of antique jewelry seems to embody an amazing appreciation for the raw material which is balanced...

Creative inspiration

That Creative Feeling is an artists blog for creative inspiration by Australian sculpture Dina Goebel.

In starting this blog I wanted to capture what feeds me as an artist and hopes it inspires you to give it a go!

About Dina

“Women are looking for alternate ways to express themselves and satisfy their creative needs but often don’t know where to begin.”

Dina Goebel 2007

This is exactly what motivates me … helping others feel inspired about art and craft in their home.

Most of the public have no confidence to even begin being an artist! This blog, established in 2012, aims to enable women to experience the joy of creative inspiration in their own homes by role modelling the artistic possibilities within everyone’s reach.

Generally my work has been nature based, my creative inspiration comes as a suburban householder concerned about our natural environment.

For 7 years I did work full time as an artist and will return to the studio after my corporate career. In the meantime my artistic expression has never left me, be it in this blog, renovating my home or creating and exploring my own artistic style. That is because,

I AM ALWAYS THE ARTIST, Dina

Palette knife art

Palette knife painting is the tool of choice for few artists and the tool of uncertainty for others. The advocates claim it demonstrates confidence, the naysayers claim it wastes paint and is a form of ‘quickie painting’. What-ever your bent, the following... read more
