When We Were Small


When We Were Small 2012  (Oil, Pastel, Graphite on Canvas 48 x48 inches)


For this painting I wrote a poem to accompany it.  Although I feel each (painting and poem) stand on their own, I think together they pack a real one-two punch - for me anyway!



When We Were…

dust bowl, amazing images

The Dust Bowl, a Ken Burns film, premieres November 18-19, 8-10 P.M. ET on PBS. 

The film "chronicles the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history..." beautiful photography and seldom seen movie footage

This is especially interesting to me because I grew up in Kansas which is one of the principal locations where this occurred.  Eerie dust storms were still happening…

Artists Statement

    My drawings and paintings combine war machines with the human image to portray primitive feelings and sexuality, inner memory, desire and conflict. I want to describe the tortures of denial and the feeling of diminishment that exists for both sexes in this period of perpetual war. The pairing of the elegant with the brooding, and the feminine with the masculine are made real through the physicality of paint and the performance of line.

    I control the raw opacity and…

Artists Statement

Inspiration is fleeting, yet persistant. On realism, at times I attempt to paint what I see, but my emotions interfere. On the abstract, at times I attempt to paint in a more abstract vein but reality sets in. So it seems that we can only paint what we paint and accept the outcome.

Atypical subjects drawn in realism settings and styles

My name is Andrew Schlageter, and I am a young artist.

I feel that these kinds of work are important to the growth and development of the creative world. When we make an abstract piece of any kind which says something, a community with a careful eye, good reasoning skills, and an open mind will appreciate it.

However, when we take an abstraction and draw it in a vivid scenario, we can take the concept that this symbol represents and link it to an other vividly drawn…

Artist Statement

Berks County-based artist Matthew Mazurkiewicz is widely-recognized for his mastery of capturing a fleeting moment through his artistic and abstract flexibility.  

Having spent much of his adult life­­ creating art in many of its various forms, Mazurkiewicz's recent body of work, Standards & Practices, highlights both his process and his command of media. Employing everything from household paint, charcoal, roofing tar and whatever else will stick to his canvas,…

Hello! My name is Leah Koontz. I was born in Boulder Colorado. Currently I am a BFA candidate at Moore College of Art and Design and I am a 3D Fine Arts major. I enjoy drinking coffee and spending time with my family and participating in art related things, and learning. I have focused on sculpture because I enjoy the freedom that it grants me.

No Going Back Now...

when I was a baby  2012  Oil, Graphite on Canvas  60”x48”

Recently, I didn’t feel like painting one day, so I did a couple of little drawings instead. I had never really done drawings in the busy abstract painting studio space at the Art Students League before. Anyway, I kind of got it in my mind that I am going to start at the beginning - my beginning -…

Overcoming Rejection

I have taken the second step of a chaotic plan to become a working artist by uploading some of my work.  I welcome your comments, critiques and encouragement.  Doubt about my talent is nourished by the numerous juried exhibition rejections I have gotten.  How do you cope?  How do you find the right galleries to send your work?

Artist Statement

As a child or "product" of the 70's and 80's, I feel very connected to that time and that connection is demonstrated in my work.  My inspiration is born out of nostalgia.  My work is often a method to communicate the fondness of a childhood that seems to be lost on today's youth.  As I work on a piece, I feel unlimited possiblity; If I can IMAGINE it, it can be.

seattle course.Rob Liberace

just back from Seattle where I studied with Rob Liberace.The course was excellent and had us using Velasquez,s palette and now I am grinding my own pigments. Journey that has taken much research ,but enjoying the end results. The lapis lazuli is expensive to purchase in tube form so I opted to grind my own, way cheaper. ie, £87, to £4.00, no comparison.

Vase Of Flowers

I had been planning this painting for a while. The "imaginary flower" studies from earlier this year were some of the preparatory designs for it. What's interesting is that the involved detail of those smaller paintings was pushed back a bit for this work. I think I have achieved a nice balance of color and design by keeping the flowers simple. This is the first of several works I plan to do in this vein - the setup can be reworked into many arrangements of color,…
