Dimitra Milan Fine Art

I love fine art…. I could spend hours/days looking at artwork of all kinds. The internet is such a fun resource to have when it comes to perusing because you can always discover new artist you may have never heard of otherwise. Some mornings I spend hours looking at the art section on Pinterest and that is exactly how I discovered this jewel. This blog is supposed to help represent me and what makes my world go round and art is a part of who I am.  Therefore, I think it is fun to share pieces with you guys that I have found and fallen in love with.

“I listen and wait for the voice of a thousand rushing waters. I can hear it in the distance, calling me to go forth in this journey. My thoughts are on heaven as I move through the mountains of this realm, to seek my future and what it beholds.” – Dimitra Milan

This painting is called “Running the Distance”. I really love it. I think it is so beautiful, the detail is amazing and I love that it has a southwestern feel to it with the wolf and desert scene. The artist, Dimitra Milan is a 16 yr old girl from Arizona. Yes, that is right, 16! Both of her parents are established artist who own an art institute where Dimitra was able to take classes and learn, but also obviously has an amazing natural talent. In an interview I read, Dimitra stated “I paint women and animals/nature together to create a dreamy atmosphere and to give you a feeling that anything is possible. I think of each animal more as a symbol, rather than just the animal itself. I think about the function and attributes of the animal and use it as a symbol. I often like to paint animals that are traditionally viewed as dangerous or predators, or animals that simply have a dangerous edge. I feel like the women who represent me or the viewer have an opportunity to overcome, or to be a part of, a grand supernatural adventure. Sometimes these relationships between the woman and the animal represent our relationship with the one who created all of us. In my paintings, these predators are not dangerous, they don’t bite and they don’t sting.”

I find this piece of art and this artist very inspirational and I hope you do too! If you want to see more of her artwork or learn more about the artist go to her website at https://www.dimitramilan.com/
