So I've decided to come to the rescue ;) - I realise my account is small (for now), and thus also my reach, but hopefully bigger accounts will see this and resteem it =)
Every week, I'll search for good stuff, and on Sundays, I'll do a curation post like this. My favourite thing is visual art, so expect many of them. But I'll mix it up every now and then with writers/bloggers and musicians too. My intention is to find two relatively small accounts and one relatively bigger one.
I knew from the start that it was going to be hard for me to describe Agnes's (@agneslaczo) work... The first piece that caught my eye was her wonderful watercolour "Magical town", but I was simply bewildered when going through the rest of her stuff...
Whimsical, child-like fantasy mixed with sometimes very strange, surreal elements make her unpredictable.
I mean, just look at this steampunky piece!
She is a prolific artist, with several posts a day, definitely worth following and supporting. I still can't get over how eclectic her style is, and how hidden the talent! Look at this digital drawing piece, which she simply says was "Just for fun!" ... O.O
Helen, or @hloria, doesn't post very often but when I found the above piece I just had to look into her - and was very glad I did.
She doesn't post one blogpost for every piece she does. Most of her posts feature several pieces of her work, often with pics showing her work in-progress.
I really hope she starts to use Steemit more because her style is uniquely fun and deserves the attention that "Interstellar Girl" got (which I just noticed was because it was curated by the @ocd team - a team one of my favourite Steemit artists, @m31, is involved with).
Hloria also gets extra points for being a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fan! (Take a look at Interstellar Girl's pack ;) ).
Sabina's (@anibas) work just blew me away (and filled me with a rare feeling of acute envy - I wish I had her talent!) ...
I went through her profile and felt like I was entering a different dream every time I saw a different piece of hers. Also, she's not only a brilliant visual artist, but has a way with words too - you'll find poetic prose and philosophical musings in almost all of her posts.
Dreamy, fantastical, mesmerizing... I just had to see more, so I went to her website. This is how she describes her work:
"My paintings could probably be categorized into two groups, especially if you are one of those people who like labeling things into neat packages. I have a strong emotional side, sensitive and poetic, with all the adorning side-effects, which enables me to lift paintings up to what has been referred to as visual poetry or poetic symbolism. The other me is cool and collected, witty and sharp, with a passion for philosophy, psychology and games… That is rather the surrealistic and wacky me, and so are some of my paintings."

I appreciate it more than can be expressed in one line at the end of a post.
