I Scream for Ice Cream


Painting: Oil and Acrylic on Canvas.

Inspired by my other larger-than-life food series and a hot hot day, this ice cream reminds one of the refreshment of a cold treat on a warm day and the sticky mess that goes along with it

About Artist

Annie Donlin

Annie Donlin was born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, the fourth of five children. Her parents quickly learned that she had inherited a creative gene from generations past. As a child, she loved painting, art classes, and exploring every opportunity to express herself artistically. Annie attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she graduated with a degree in communications and advertising and a minor in fine art. It wasn't until she experienced the pressures of working in the advertising field that she decided to pursue an education in design at Columbia College in Chicago. While working days in the package design field, Annie spent her evenings drawing as often as time would allow. Annie’s love for travel took her to Europe, Africa and eventually Guatemala, where she enrolled in a Spanish immersion course. There, she met a handsome Swiss architect, and Annie’s life changed course. After moving to Europe, she continued to work in the field of design as a freelancer and joined painting classes in the evenings. And then: children. Less time to paint, but more time to come up with fun creative art projects for little ones. After the kids’ schedules were too busy for art projects, Annie converted a room in her basement into an art studio. There, she rediscovered the joy of painting. She also finally found time to finish writing and illustrating the story Ellabellabellooza—a project inspired by her children, which she’d been nurturing for many years. Annie stumbled upon an opportunity for studio space in a converted infirmary at the foot of the Alps in Lucerne, Switzerland, where she now shares the creative process with other artists. If you ever find yourself in the area, stop by the studio—the doors are always open! Education: University of Illinois - Champaign Urbana BS Communications Columbia College Chicago Graphic Design

The Years that Pass By

Time passes by so quickly, that it inspires Carlos Morales to freeze a moment through his art. He paints a scene from the city of Lima, with its ageless domes and bell towers in the distance. In the foreground, what once was a brand new, coveted car, now it's reduced to scrap, with chains keeping the doors together and bricks where tires used to be. "Humans share the same destiny," observes the Peruvian artist. He paints with watercolors, carefully detailing twisted metal and shiny church cupolas.

Titled "Los años que se van" in Spanish.
