Well, it’s time to paint again. It’s a very strange thing to be going along and then one day like a bolt of lightning it hits me that I need to create more art.
I’ve decided to do a series of paintings that I’ve had as digital ideas for a few years and stop wondering what I should do next. Just do the art and get back into the “habit” of being a fine artist. That feels like a healthy idea and a very productive thing at this point of my life.
This is the first image I’ll be working on. Let me know what you think. I call it TV-Cows! It’s based on a photo I took in Aruba. This cow sculpture was sitting on top of a restaurant with a antenna sticking out of the top of it. Strangely amusing!
Sometimes I wonder what inspires people to do creative things. Is it going somewhere new? Discussing a topic of great interest to you? Remembering inspiration from the past?
I always seem to get inspired when I see other artist’s work. Going to galleries and seeing something so new and fresh really gets me inspired. The other day I was walking down Ventura Blvd and went into a gallery near Laurel Canyon Blvd and the artist there had a very creative combination of images and typography. For example; a silkscreen of the American Express card with the card name “American Excess” done as the logo on the card. Quite a statement.
Beauty inspires me. People in photographs or paintings or just very aesthetic surroundings.
Thank goodness my iPhone takes very good photographs. This was taken from my car.
What inspires you?
My question is not why put it on the tongue but what piece of art to use? And, I suppose it’s true what they say about women having a higher threshold of pain than men. I can’t imagine what it must have felt like to have the artist’s needle the art on her tongue.
All I know is her boyfriend or husband must tell his friends “she’s a great kisser!”
I “stumbled upon” this piece of art on a blog and was blown away by it.
This man’s wife had a sculpture created of herself for her husband’s grave as a symbol of her lasting love. Now, that’s what I call devotion. The sculpture itself is of the finest quality as well.
I’m sure when people come to pay their respects to their loved ones they have to notice this and I’m sure tell friends and family about it.
I wonder what it was like to come to the grave next to it and see it for the first time. It’s truly remarkable.
Looks like the wife had something else in mind when she was considering “until death do us part.”
Have you ever noticed that some people just can’t take a bad picture?
This is Sarah. She happens to be one of those people. I’ve seen hundreds of photographs of her and not one in the bunch is a “lemon”. Really!
This is a digital portrait I just created from one of her wedding photographs. She has a way of looking into the camera with pure intensity. She’s like that in life as well. Very intense, fun and charming all at the same time. Now that’s an art.
As you can see, her eyes are her strong point as they pierce you and you dare not look away.
Photography is an interesting medium. Some people can pose and some just can not stand to have their picture taken no matter what you do. It is an invasion of one’s privacy to a certain extent as the camera never lies and it has a way of capturing the moment whether you’re ready for it or not. And, if you’re not comfortable and ready it will emphasize that even more.
Fortunately, Sarah doesn’t have any of those problems. All you need to do with her is point and shoot. She’ll make you look good as well!
Here’s a little insider information about what have turned out to be some pretty famous lips.
These lips belong to a model named Lorillie Goldberg. You ask how I know this? Well, as it turned out I was the art director who designed the poster and had to find a model with perfect lips that would look good as a still photographic. The original concept came about from watching a screening the film at 20th Century-Fox before its’ release. One of the first things seen in the film are a pair of lips that fill the screen and sing to you.
When I saw that I immediately imagined a poster with the lips and the concept was approved as quickly by the studio. The copy line “A different set of jaws” came about because this film was release shortly after Steven Spielberg’s first major directorial debut of “Jaws”.
This piece of art was created by three artists using multiple media and over a period of 100 years.
The original painting was done by Bouguereau without tattoos and without the motorcycle.
The Tattoos were added as part of the
Anachronisms in fine art photoshopping contest
I added the motorcycle to complete the image as I would like to see it.
I think the tattoos bring something special to this cherub and offers an attitude not seen before but could express an alter-ego for these mischievious characters.
It’s not a stretch to imagine this angel climbing on the bike and roaring off in search of her next “victim” to cast an arrow towards.
With many illustrations on her body I suppose she would be welcome in any biker bar and most likely would find a sorrowful fellow to take pity on and sling a shaft towards.
My only hope would be that who ever the poor fellow happened to be looking at in the moment of the arrows penetration be worthy of his fall from “freedom” to a life of relationship “hell”.
