500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #414 – Landscape 14-004

Landscape 14-004 Musings of the Artists Mind Things are always staring up in the background of solitude. This one looks like a drive by photo I toon on the highway between Abu Dhabi & Dubai. The more I loo at it, the more I imagine it shouting at the passing cars: “Hay, wait for me!” … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #414 – Landscape 14-004

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #413 – Landscape 14-003

Landscape 14-003 Musings of the Artists Mind Imagine the hazy heat rising from the ground to blur everything; even the shadows cast from the trees seam lost in the excessive humidity of the day. The trees remind me of the mushrooms in Fantasia. Getting ready to dance apart in a whimsical circle of life and … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #413 – Landscape 14-003

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #412- Landscape 14-002

Landscape 14-002 Musings of the Artists Mind The green of this tree is wonderfully alive. I think it adds to the effect of perspective. If I didn't know, I would have a hard time telling just how big this painting is. Making small canvases like this is lots of fun, but much harder than big … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #412- Landscape 14-002

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #411 – Landscape 14-001

Landscape 14-001 Musings of the Artists Mind I challenged myself to make smaller canvases and this first series came from it. Up close the textures added wonderful lighting effects; they all have an antique photography feel to them. The star of this one and its siblings is the dark forest green mixed with a high … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #411 – Landscape 14-001

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #410 – Who Me?

Who Me? Musings of the Artists Mind Movement and sound... Yes, sound! Look into the painting and you will start to hear the gentle wind rustling in the leaves of this tree. Watch longer and you might feel the breeze coming off the ocean, just over the ridge on the horizon. An impossible stillness inspired … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #410 – Who Me?

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #409 – Landscape – Distant Cousins

Landscape - Distant Cousins Musings of the Artists Mind Sometimes making art is like taking a leap of faith. In this case it's having faith in my materials: a largish canvas, a limited pallet of acrylic paints, some well loved brushes, water and varnish;  throw them altogether with time and patience and voila! The technique … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #409 – Landscape – Distant Cousins

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #408 – Abstract Land 2 – Blustery Day

Abstract Land 2 - Blustery Day Musings of the Artists Mind Here's a lonely tree, out in the middle of nowhere. It seams to be defiantly staring back at the viewer as they are contemplating the tree. There is also something of memory in this composition; Perhaps my memory, perhaps from yours.  The colours variations … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #408 – Abstract Land 2 – Blustery Day

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #407 – Howl Two

Howl Two Musings of the Artists Mind An over-paint on my own original Howl painting. The original was thick, dripping, flat white on glossy black. It was stark, sleek, and sterile. As fiercely dadaist as the most popular paperback cover of Ginsberg’s Howl that inspired it. And, it left me with a feeling of incompleteness, … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #407 – Howl Two

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #406 – Winter’s Tree

Winter’s Tree Musings of the Artists Mind I got inspired by my painting titled: “Sawsan’s Trees” and wanted to give her a lighter scene. This highly textured piece gives me the impression of a cool, crisp Spring day, before the snow melts. We can feel the rain in the air, but the sky is still … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #406 – Winter’s Tree

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #405 – Sawsan’s Trees

Sawsan’s Trees Musings of the Artists Mind My wife pulled an old painting she did from her storage and she didn’t like it anymore. I asked her if I could rework it and try to bring forth her vision as I understood it from her description.  Originally a pair of trees; green and red, with … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #405 – Sawsan’s Trees
