I am sure when man decided to paint on walls like the Egyptians he did not realise the number of different mediums that could be used to portray life!
Each one of us has a painting within us, much the same as a book. There really is creativity within us all - it's knowing how to release it, that is the hard part. How often do you find yourself doodling whilst on the phone, for instance? Or whilst you are waiting etc. Well, that's a form of art, isn't it?
Take a look at some of the following different styles. Each one gives us a glimpse of the artist, their personality and character. Actors bring something of themselves to their parts in much the same way as artists.
This is an original watercolour painting of beautiful yellow sunflowers in a blue sap bucket hanging from a fence.
"Shawnee River" was inspired by a river that flows through the southern part of Ohio. It is near the old camping grounds of the Native American Shawnee Tribe. The evening the artist was there, the river area was so quiet, and yet filled with the spirits of the Shawnee Indian. The sun's setting rays slipped easily through the naked trees that fall had stripped of their summer leaves, and then touched the river's waters with their orange and golden colours.
"Picture yourself in a boat on a river, with tangerine trees and marmalade skies..."
This painting took inspiration from The Columbia River and a Lewis and Clark campsite.
