    I Love to Create-if You Own My Painting You Have a Part of My Soul

    I love to create.  It is my heart and soul on canvass. ...I'm working on a counseling degree and eventually want to work with the AMFPA  (foot and mouth painters) ....just typeing this makes me want to paint.  Perhaps, I shall post some of my work soon.  ...

    I Love It

    For as long as i can remember I've needed to use creative outlets. Drawing and photography as well, but painting mainly. I've recently started illustrating too. I paint mainly portraits and I love it. I'd like to post some of them on here but I can't work out how to get...

    Art Is Life

    Art is like the air i breathe. There's no other feeling like putting a brush to a canvas. Everyone doesnt get to experience that kind of feeling but im so happy that i do. I cant wait to change peoples views one painting at a time!

    All My Life

    I've been creating for as long as i remember. It didn't become a formal part of my life until my mid 20's. I was confused about what I wanted to do with my life, working at a dead end job, taking a year break (which turned into 4 years) from college. One day I looked around my...

    Pierre Bonnard

    Right now, I'm really loving Bonnard. These paintings are so luscious. I love how he plays with contrasting colors, and creates this rich atmosphere. I also enjoy the play with spacial relationships.

    I usually paint in oils (and sometimes acrylic),

    but today I tried my hand at a digital painting using only Photoshop. The portraits isn't done but I have to admit - I really liked the process (even though I used a mouse and not a digital pen, which was frustrating at times).

    Not Of The Brush To Canvas Kind, Nor The Walls Kind, But....

    I paint miniature models. Specifically the Lord of the Rings/Hobbit range produced by Games Workshop. I'm not exactly the best painter, but it's a hobby I enjoy very much, one which is productive and relaxing, and I can spend many hours losing myself in. A lot of my work can be...

    Painting is a different experience

    for everyone, so I can only speak from my point of view. To me, painting is a combination of hard work, boundless imagination, real skill, and pure confidence. If you think you'll mess up, you will. If the artist is weak, the painting is weak. We give our souls to every painting...

    Finally finished "Viktoria'

    as I call the portrait. I'm pleased with the outcome, especially since it's only my second digital painting attempt and it was painted only a mouse (next time, I'll use the digital wacom pen). The image in my first post took 7 hours. To get it to this stage took about 16 more, a...

    Concepts And Canvases

    Painting is my one true mastery. I live to create and am only satisfied when I've completed something I'm sincerely happy with. I do all forms of art, but painting is by far my most cherished art form as well as my most skilled. There's just something profoundly beautiful about...
