Friends

 

Without them my youth

Would have been without adventures,

My friends,

My heroes.

 

Without them I could not have

Survived the social breakdown,

My friends,

My lifeguards.

 

Without them my world

Is really strange,

My friends,

My best memories.

 

My heroes,

My lifeguards,

My best memories,

My friends.

“Sneaky Fox” by Skye Elizabeth Wieland

“Sneaky Fox”
sneakyfox

Notes:
Sneaky Fox is a mixed media artwork that was created with oil pastels and oil paints on cartridge paper with black gesso base. Sneaky Fox was inspired by my current interest in foxes and was the best work that came out of a series of commissioned pastels that I worked on.

If you liked my painting of Sneaky Fox, please don’t hesitate to visit my online store at RedBubble.com to purchase prints, clothing or other apparel with this design.

The creation of this painting can be viewed on my Speed Painting video on YouTube

Notes from the Artist:
My name is Darryl Thomas and I am a 68 year old veteran and a stroke victim.
I was a professional musician for almost 50 years. During that time I managed to draw something every once-in-a-while until the last 10 years before an illness which devastated my beloved career. After the initial shock, I bought my second computer
and began teaching myself how to use certain art programs to produce the work I was doing before with brushes and paint, and create art work even more satisfying and more challenging than anything I had ever imagined before. The possibilities are absolutely endless. Not to mention cutting expenses of paint; brushes, and canvas; just to name a few.

Davy Crockett Lake painting 2

November Morning 2

Notes from the Artist:
I am basically a self-taught artist who began drawing and painting at the age of 12. While most of my work is done on a commission basis, I do find time to paint the things I love. Flowers, landscapes, cats, are all a part of my life and my art. My work has been featured on greeting cards and posters. I love drawing and painting older homes, especailly old homeplaces that have character and family history.

Notes from the Artist:
I’m artist living in Saint-Petersburg.
I’ve been drawing, painting and doing graphic design over last 20 years.
Now I’m creating the concept art to the Kin-Dza-Dza animation movie.

I’ve been drawing for as long as I remember myself. Both graphic
design and digital art attract me, but recently I tend to commit to
digital art more than anything else.

I tried various techniques, including traditional inks, pens, brushes
and also experimented with digital art. Now I use Adobe Photoshop and
Corel Painter, just brushes, no fancy stuff or filters. By using
limited toolset I am able to achieve stylistic consistensy throughout
my artwork. I focus more on expresion of my creative concepts than on
technology or tools. While working in digital medium, I am free of
limitations of traditional tools, such as drying of oil paint,
changing of gouache color or etching line width.

Ms. Antar, who has become famous for the realism that she creates out of stone, recently had her carrere boxing gloves put on display at the 97th Annual Show of Allied Artists of America at the National Arts Club in NYC. On November 28, Antar is going to be presented with the Members and Associates Award for her gloves at the National Arts Club.

Those sculptures include Oreo’s, Dr. Marten’s, Diesel Jeans, M&M’s, and a Heinz Ketchup Bottle, amongst others. These sculptures can be seen all over, as they have been on display at museums, art galleries, corporate offices, and universities.

Lack of love… (Desamor… )

Desamor...

Desamor... (Lack of love...) by AmaSilyS...

My message: If you are overwhelmed by fatigue and want to surrender … Stand up, with your head held high, look for energy even in the air you breathe and go on! It’s for you! Even when you have to start again, ensures yourself that never the indifference towards you … comes from your soul.

I have to confess something about this work: I couldn’t finish it because the feeling I wanted to express –fortunately- abandoned me before I do it. But, finally,  I thought it was ready because it reflects my message brutally.

 _________________________

Mi mensaje: Si te abruma el cansancio y quieres rendirte… Levántate, con la frente en alto, busca energía hasta en el aire que respiras y continúa! Es por ti! Aun cuando tengas que comenzar de nuevo, procura que en ningún tiempo el desamor hacia ti… provenga de tu alma.

Tengo que confesar algo sobre este trabajo: no pude terminarlo porque el sentimiento que quería expresar-por suerte-me abandonó antes de hacerlo. Pero, finalmente, pensé que estaba listo porque refleja mi mensaje brutalmente.

Notes from the Artist:
I am French. I started painting in 1994.in Nancy. Then I moved to Paris and took some drawing lessons. I moved in 2011 to Bergen, in the Netherlands. Bergen is a village in which a lot of artists live. So, I took lessons with different painters to try new techniques. My style is semi figurative and I love painting women. I use mortar, collage, resin , sprays, according to my mood. I am influenced by art nouveau, Tamara DE lempicka, Kees van Dongen,, Picasso and stylists like Dior.
