Have you ever dreamed of a famous artist painting your portrait? I definitely have. I think it would be so cool to have an abstract or highly stylized painting of myself. Of course, in a few years, we’ll probably all have artificial intelligence available to make all sorts of funky portraits of us. Still, I prefer to do some old school day dreaming.
If I had to choose, I would definitely want a Picasso of myself. (Yes, I know he’s long dead, just dreaming here.) Or maybe a Warhol. Or even a Dali. Heck I’ll take all three! To be honest, I’d love a painting of myself by any famous artist (who wouldn’t???). But I do find something wacky or colorful to be the most compelling 🙂
I found the idea of a world famous artist painting my portrait so compelling that I decided to write a quiz about it. If you’ve been using Blogthings a while, you’ve already probably taken What Artist Should Paint Your Portrait?, but hear me out… this quiz is totally improved. I did even more research on the artist’s featured, an d now the quiz outcomes are three to four times as long.
So if you’ve ever wondered which artist should paint you, take What Artist Should Paint Your Portrait? You may be surprised to learn which artist bests would capture your personality. Are you more of a pop art or surrealist type? This quiz will tell you and possibly introduce you to your new favorite visual artist.
Give this quiz a go, and let me know what you think. Did you get an artist that you would actually like to paint your portrait? If not, what sort of portrait would you like?
Are you a fan of modern art? I sometimes am, especially if it is intricate or colorful. I’m not a fan of a single shape on a white canvas or other silly things. But sometimes modern art is cool and beautiful!
If you also like modern art (or even if you don’t), take my latest quiz: The Modern Art Test. It’s a quick image quiz that will give you your personality based on the art you choose. Let me know what you get and if it’s accurate for you.
Do you like modern paintings? I like some of them. I’ll be the first to admit that the modern wing of most museums aren’t my favorite place to hang out. They’re a little more hit or miss for me. As far as modern paintings go, I like paintings full of landscapes, people, buildings, animal, or just plain stuff. If that’s not quite modern enough for you, then I also like paintings that are full of color and busyness, even if they aren’t about anything in particular. What I’m not a fan of, however, is paintings that are very simple – of one shape or color. Or even just a canvas painted one color. I guess I just don’t get those 😉
Despite my modern art pickiness, I do want to like more of it, especially paintings. I already love modern architecture (so much), design, photography, some drawing, some sculpture… I’d love to add paintings to my list. In some ways, I feel like it’s the last piece in the puzzle for me truly appreciating all forms of art. And it would be nice not to rush through the modern part of the art museum every time I go 🙂
So when I found some modern paintings that I loved, I knew I had to make a quiz out of them. I hope you like looking at these at much as I did. Take The Modern Painting Test, and let me know what you get. Also, comment below to let me know what you think of modern art.

Do you like to doodle? I’m not much of an artist, but I am a huge doodler. Growing up, I was always bored in class, and doodling was one of the few activities I could get away with. I would sometimes try to read a book in class behind my textbook, but I always got caught. However, doodling looked a lot like note taking to teachers, and I could aways just change the page if the teacher was coming down the aisle.
As an adult, I feel like I have lost the art of doodling. I think cell phones, tablets, and computers have replaced pen and paper for objects to busy myself with. Maybe it’s like that for many of us. I feel like I was a lot more content with a pad of paper and a writing instrument. I wish I could get back to that, but the allure of the screen pulls me in.
When it comes to doodling, one exception for me is the dinner table, where I happen to have a pencil or pen around (for crosswords) and plenty of paper (magazine subscription cards and the like). I tend to find myself doodling whenever I’m having tea or immersed in conversation. Since I’m not in class and rapidly changing pieces of paper, my doodles tend to be multilayered. Doodling on the same piece of paper for months leads to crazy and chaotic results! It’s an interesting visual history of my life, that’s for sure.
I think our doodles reveal a lot about us, and there seems to be psychological research to back that up. I tapped into some of that research for The Doodle Test. If you’re a doodler, you’ll definitely want to take this one. It helps you read your most recent doodle to figure out what’s going on in your mind. And if you don’t doodle, some people still have found insight from imagining doodling when taking this quiz.
Let me know what you got on The Doodle Test Does your result fit you? Do you enjoy doodling?
Are you an artist? Whether you make beautiful things or can’t even draw a round circle, you probably have at least imagined being at artist. And that’s where this quiz comes in. Simply select the way you’d start a painting with The Art Start Test
