The medium I used for this one-of-a-kind original painting is alcohol ink. I paint with alcohol ink in an intuitive manner and there are a lot of very subtle things going on in the background such as dragonflies, butterflies and delicate flowers that just seem to appear. In this painting, I used various shades of greens and yellows with touches of orange, purples and aqua.
Alcohol inks are acid-free, highly pigmented and permanent. This medium is used on non-porous substrates such as glass, tile, plastics, metals and glossy papers and the colors appear to just float on top since this type of substrate does not absorb the ink.
All of my alcohol ink paintings are created on a cradled wood birch panel (the width on the sides of the cradle may vary from 3/4″ to 2″). The panel is painted on all sides and back with a color that compliments the painting. I put framers wire on the back and hanging hardware so it will be ready to hang when you receive it. I spray the finished piece with a clear protective coating that will not disturb the alcohol ink and you will not need glass. I then use a thin layer of acrylic UV polymer varnish for a final layer of protection.
Artisan Handmade Jewelry Fine Art Blog – Life Expressions
LifeExpressions are paintings that client’s commission me to do for a loved one, special friend or themselves. These very personal paintings feature what they are passionate about in their life. A LifeExpressions painting captures the essence of the person and what they love in life. For instance, the below LifeExpressions commission is called, The Hunter and was created for someone who treasures family and nature.
SoulWorks Spiritual Art
Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures. Henry Ward Beecher
Healing colors play a significant role in the creation of my SoulWorks original paintings. The essence of the soul of my subjects are captured and expressed in my images that reside within the quiet side of nature. Of course, in trying to paint the essential spirit of a person or a living essence in nature is always an intuitive action. A sense of enigma is created in my SoulWorks paintings blending nature with the Divine.
Painting is a pigment of my imagination…
If I can create art, then everything will be good…
