Light from Heaven
My maternal grandma who died when I was a fetus was an artist. So was my paternal aunt who found her gift at my age now. She and a college friend told me I had talent I should develop. My career as a Nurse Practitioner and a Wife/Mom kept me too busy but my soul craved Art. I see and feel God when light reaches out on a person or through the trees or clouds. I want to share that feeling through art but have limited skills. I had the privilege of painting this scene recently with guidance from a talented artist but she retired from teaching and I need help. I have only used pencil and oil media and done 3 study still lifes and this one landscape.
This was quite challenging!
I am a mother of 3 adult children and 2 adopted special needs boys. They can be quite a job if I don’t find an outlet for my emotions. I live in northern Minnesota, USA, and right now the winter is really starting to get to me, even though we still have a long way to go!
My passion is my art, and I do it as much as possible. Since my husband stayed home on disability (almost a year ago) and has now retired, I find it even harder to find “me time” to do my art. I love to do art everyday because it is so important to my well being. It is so important to me that I feel unsettled when I don’t find the time to at least do a little! The 2 special needs boys can become overwhelming really fast if I don’t find a way to get away from it all. And art is my get away!
Péter Somlyai is my name.
I learned as a carpenter. Later I developed my skill in art societies. The art took important part in my job in my entire life. I needed to apply that everyday.
I’d like widening and deepening my my skills. I like the Classicist style but I’m especially interested in with Renaissance and Baroque.
My name is Philip L Fairbairn I’m a self taught artist from Canada. I was drawing at age ten. My dad got me a mail in art class that you would see in the back of a Magazine, you had to draw the Pirate with the eye patch to see if you had what it took to be an artist. Funny, I thought even as young as I was, I bet everyone is excepted as an artist LOL. I would sneak out of bed in the middle of the night and look at the pictures of Renaissance paintings that were in this big old Bible that my dad would read all the time. I couldn’t pronounce the names of the painters that painted them, But I just new that one day I’ll paint like that one day to.
My name is Dunja Ozegovic and I am born in 1995 in Serbia, Belgrade. I studied Faculty of Fine Arts, at the department for painting, in 2014, in the class of Dragana Stanacev Puaca, and graduated in 2018 in the class of Mileta Prodanovic on the same department. I have been included in 27 group exibitions and one solo exibitions, and I have 4 awards.
Currently I studies at MA at Faculty of Fine Arts. I live in Belgrade. For me art is life because art is all around us and in ourselves. In art, I see the challenge of constantly learning.
I was never the artistic one in my house, that was my brother and my mother. My mother’s paintings were like poetry, the colors flowed and moved, every change on the light or position would change the painting, and I loved them.
Love is Art
My name is Tajmina Aakhi. I was born in Bangladesh but my family and I immigrated to the United States when I was a child. Currently, I am studying at Texas A&M University. Usually on the first of class when any professor ask me, “What’s your hobby?”
I always answer by saying, “I love to draw/paint.”
My name is Prasanth Kali, I am a B.Tech Graduate and I live in India. From my study life onwards I developed a great passion to become a Book author and to be a full time Artist. For, I believe that books and arts are two God given gifts to reveal what the beauty of human minds can create and acquire. Neither my friends nor my parents support me in this, even a voice in my head whispers all the time that “Book” is for folly and “Art” is for destitution yet here I am, resisting all those demons and moving in my journey.
Work in progress
My name is Carmela Monica Lorusso
I am a creative artist from Rozzano in the province of Milan. In my life, art occupies the first place. The objectives that I set myself is the exploration of new mediums and artistic supports to combine them with the ancient artistic techniques that I would like to learn in the field of art.
There is always something to learn from every artist
Art helps us express our emotions & feelings on canvas. I am a self taught novice. As a child my parents didn’t have enough money to send me to a special elementary class for children with artistic capabilities though my school teachers had suggested it. Lack of money always pricked me, reminding me that even skills you wish to develop come at a price. Recently however I shelled out some money and decided to pursue my hobby rather my childhood dream. I bought canvas, oil paint, easel, brushes etc all the basics needed to start painting. Uploaded is a sample of my first oil on canvas still life painting.
Since I am just starting off, I have come to a realization that there are a lot of techniques, terminologies, methods to learn.
