I used this image of Obama to draw you in. Draw you in like a…well…like some sort of animal to prey. Or moths to one of those bug lamps. Or something like that. Never mind.

Composition and technique aside, Francoise Nielly‘s art is striking and, well, cool. Very cool. She uses a much larger range of colors than one might expect for portraits. The more you look at them, the more they might seem cartoonish. But at a glance, there’s nothing cartoonish about them. More noticeable than anything is the emotions conveyed by the subjects’ faces. Many of them appear to be staring at the viewer, and to great effect. As a viewer, I feel like I’m enaging with more than just a painting and maybe even a flesh-and-blood person.These effects are achieved using paint and a palette knife.

Nielly grew up in the South of France and credits her architect father as being the source of her “sense of space and construction.” According to her website, her most recent exhibition took place last winter from December to February in Paris. She has also shown her work at the Artfair Glasgow 2009 in April and the Arthamptons (located in, guess where, the Hamptons) in July.

    [PhD Nutrition] Pharma Whey: I agree completely with Mike. Strawberry tastes odd, it has a very bitter edge when used with water, for no apparent reason. Maybe some of their extra chemicals are giving it a harsh after-taste. Tastes better with milk, but not fantastic. The strawberry y does froth up loads after 5 seconds of shaking. You have to wait a while for it to settle before you can drink it like a normal shake. Try Boditronics Express Whey in chocolate. It s not amazing, but it s very easy to drink and mixes well.
