Reflections of the Soul

Great art is about showing people a different way to see things. Some say that art shows people the depths of the artist’s soul or a glance into their dreams. I paint what I see in my dreams.

What makes good art? Ask ten different people and receive ten different answers. Carsten Wittmann of Frankfurt (Germany) was drawn to the artwork of Jessilyn Park because of her portrayal of positivity in combination with the intense colors. He was introduced to her artwork from a friend on Facebook, who shared Park’s painting during one of her highly anticipated “Name This Painting” contests. He said the painting was “so powerful and positive” and he had to have it.

Within hours of posting “Reflections of the Soul” online Park sold her 18” x 24” oil on canvas palette knife masterpiece to Wittmann making him her first international buyer. By using her marketing and communications education and experience and combining it with her newly found artistic talent Park has amassed thousands of fans in eight short months using social media.

“Great art is about showing people a different way to see things. Some say that art shows people the depths of the artist’s soul or a glance into their dreams. I paint what I see in my dreams”, Park said of her artwork in an interview for a local newspaper.

Art is one of the most intimate forms of communication possible between two human beings. It rivals that of love making and is sometimes said to evoke passions as such. The viewer is able to see the world through the artist's eyes. When an artist creates a piece, it is said they always put a little bit of themselves in the work. They are creating something that will last forever, a piece of them that will live on even after they die.

We all crave intimacy. We all want our soul touched. In some ways, art fills those voids.

Van Gogh showed human emotion where it usually does not seem to exist: in landscapes. We can see the world as van Gogh saw it and his work is personal, intimate and honest.

Dali showed us a new way to look at things giving sometimes many different perspectives all in one painting.

Jessilyn Park uses "bright, happy colors" in order to portray optimism, cheerful and sanguine pieces of art. As the message of her positive pieces of art spreads, so does her popularity. Worldwide.

Social media is empowering people from across the globe to share their talents with the world.
