Good Things Continue To Happen

They say “good things come to those who wait” but I say “good things come to those who continue to press forward with their dreams until they manifest into reality”.

Collage, Oils and Pastels = A New Creation of Art

I started playing with some of my old pieces by blending them with some new software I have.  I remember doing this once before with my watercolors where I took some watercolor paintings and reworked them in Illustrator which made some beautiful digital art.

The top one is a Collage 18 X 24 , I used pastels, cut out some pictures from magazines and then scanned this into my software to make this beautiful new piece of Man’s Confusion.

The bottom piece is a piece I had done for the Small Art Series Gallery, The Bell Peppers are  8 X 10  Oil on Canvas, scanned into the computer to make this collage type Digital Art piece.
I really like the way they both turned out and it goes to show you can re-create any piece of art making it tell a different story.

Let me know what you think about these two creations……..be sure to follow us, like our page and leave comments (we really do read them)

SKETCHBOOK DRAWINGS WITH PEN – CROSS HATCHING

One of the best times to take your sketchbook with you is when you know you will be waiting for a period of time.   Here are some of my idle time drawings where I did some “Cross Hatching Drawings” with pens.   It really helps the time go by quickly.   These are with the Micron 02 and 05 pens.   You can view more of our works at http://chinue.imagekind.com/Smallartseries,  thanks for following.

Artist Trading Cards

My new project is the Artist Trading Cards.   Each one of these small pieces is 2.5 X 3.5 .  I bought the Canvas Paper for oils but they also have the ones for Pastels, Charcoal, and Water Color.  You get about 10 cards per pack and since they are already treated you can just paint, glue, stamp or whatever you want.  I have seen some very creative cards online.

I love to paint small as you know by my Small Art Series Paintings which start at 8 X 10 but I must admit painting on this small-scale 2.5 X 3.5  is really a challenge.   It will be interesting to see where this leads me.

Let me know your thoughts about these trading cards and take a visit to my gallery for other pieces  http://chinue.imagekind.com/Smallartseries

The Festivals Have Begun Part 2 – Chalk Art Festival and Classic Cars Show

We spent the day at the Chalk Art Festival and Classic Car Show in Pasadena, Ca (Father’s Day 2015)  I was my first time attending this festival so I was excited and amazed at all the amazing artist that were there creating and sharing their unique style of art. Art comes  in many forms, mediums and creations and I do not think we will ever get to see all of them in one life time.  It was a nice warm day,  people came from near and far for this yearly event. Feel free to leave comments, like our page and please follow us this summer for more festivals………….

Step By Step Is The Process

Life is a process and with each process we are supposed to grow, learn and reflect.  We are now well into 2015.  We have been painting, cleaning out the remnants of 2014 by shredding old paperwork.

Currently we are working on our inventory of art supplies, our inventory of art, and our goals for this new year.  Were ordering new canvas, new brushes and drawing new ideals in our sketchbook.

We recently went to the Free day at one of the LA Museums.  Since it was free, there were a lot of people.

Art is an ever-growing, ever-expanding career and there are so many new and exciting artist and their works are just amazing.  From an idea to a vision to  a concept that is the process of art and that process is ever-changing in the mind of an artist.

We are currently making new art for our “Small Art Series”  which starts at 8 X 10 Canvas Oils.   This is the first one for 2015  called “That is Less” 8 X 10 Oil  ,  it is available at our site http://chinue.imagekind.com/Smallartseries.
This is the first post of 2015 so thanks for following us this year as we journey through the world of art…..be sure to like our page and leave a comment……..
