I named this abstract "A NEW SONG ". I painted it as a video. It is on youtube now. Since my husband died in May, I have changed my life style. I moved home and have a new studio. When trials come , I have the LORD to lean on and help me through it all. It gives me a new song in my heart. My painting has been another help to me

The Power of New Artwork

by AnnieSteiner , September 16, 2014—12:00 AM

The power of a new piece. Something remarkable happens when you hang a newly acquired piece of artwork in your home. In a way, that new piece completely changes the perception of its surroundings. You find that the whole room is embellished by that new acquisition

Art for the soul

by Soullounge_Art , August 28, 2014—12:00 AM

Most of my work is abstract and very colourful. Colours are a way for me to express my mood and emotions. I put my life experience, my love and pain, the impressions from travelling on this planet, my daily business, my boredom, my laughter, myself in my art

Writing from life

by rogerburnett , August 25, 2014—12:00 AM

Just as I paint from life in order to capture the transient moments of life, I find that poetry is most effective when scribbled down in the heat of the moment. The following lines refer to an emotional reunion. They were text to me, rather than scribbled, by Jessica Bellevue, my model and poetic muse

July Afternoon, Hadley, MA

by Ellen , July 23, 2014—12:00 AM

It was a beautiful warm summer day and perfect to go do some Plein Air painting up in Hadley, MA. I've done several paintings in this area as I love the view of the Holyoke Range to the south. The atmospheric perspective is quite beautiful and really shows up in this terrain on a hot day

It's about the Freckles: Deciding the Focus of Your Painting

by Caroline , July 9, 2014—12:00 AM

This is actually version two of my tiger lily painting. When we came across the particular patch of wild flowers from which this one was taken, the mass of color was almost overwhelming

Afternon Shadows

by maryexline , June 19, 2014—12:00 AM

"Afternoon Shadows" is part of a body of work created for the painting challenge called "30 By 30." A painting was to be done each day for 30 days. All paintings were 6" _ 6" on gessoed boards. When the time was up, then the paintings were hung at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA

The other day I published the first images in my Africa Gallery. It was special. It reminded me of special times in Kenya and Tanzania. In our two safaris we were thrilled beyond our expectations with the countries, their people, and most of all--their many beautiful animals

If only...

by rogerburnett , June 5, 2014—08:44 PM

Today's painting dates from earlier in the year: a languid afternoon and a painting of Jessica sleeping. If only we could return for a while to those halcyon days of painting and bathing. But with an exhibition looming ahead there is no longer time

Dylan Thomas's Boathouse, Laugharne

by sweaverwales , May 29, 2014—12:00 AM

It's the hour before dawn. The village is silent. Everything is still. There's a hint of light in the sky across the estuary. I can make out the odd shapes of some boats just visible above the river bank, waiting for the tide. There's a chill in the air. I take the footpath out of the village, following the curve of the estuary
