This is a peaceful water scene with subtle cool blue tones that bump up against a distant shoreline. Small areas of brown and sienna in the foreground suggest a shallow cove that is safe and calm.
Sizable paintings of plants and flowers jar the attention—drawing the viewer into a place of stillness, to hear the whispers. Love is vulnerable, unexpected, yielding and humble. Open your heart to receive.
Mysterious and ever-changing is the essence of alcohol inks. I corral the movement with heavier acrylics, letting the inks bleed and weave into the heavier medium. It’s a balance of control over chaos.
I believe inspiration is everywhere. I currently work with oil on a variety of subjects. I prefer a traditional approach; however, I also incorporate a touch of surrealism with the use of bright colors and visible brushstrokes.

I love to create “Dreamscapes” where I start with the inherent beauty in nature, places and people and take a creative leap from there. Venice is the magical place that inspired this artwork.
Bringing landscapes into one’s home is calming for many busy people who may feel disengaged from nature. I hope to provide paintings that beckon you to connect with the beauty of our surroundings.
I am an artist and photographer from Russia. My paintings celebrate sentimental value and the evanescing beauty of ordinary things. Working at my easel, following traditions of the old masters, I feel inner peace and serenity.
My sculptural practice is concerned primarily with the readymade. Using objects and materials of an industrial or utilitarian origin, I set out to explore and develop possible scenarios which may reveal hidden connections and meanings.
As a photographer, my images can be completely realistic all the way to totally imaginative. As a digital artist, my work ranges from abstract to photomontages to fine art to commercial design.
“A Brighter Future” reflects my attempt to stay upbeat and positive during the pandemic. Through the colors, mood and gesture of this painting, I convey hope that this too shall pass and brighter days will return.
I am a contemporary impressionist painter in oils and watercolour inspired by the beauty of nature and my surroundings in beautiful British Columbia. Subject matter includes landscapes and wildlife.
Hawaii has some of the world’s largest telescopes. The images they capture inspire me with their mysterious, swirling cosmic clouds and stellar lights. Hawaiians revere the universe because they depended on the stars for navigation.
I am most drawn to paint subjects from my memory, like this portrait of Arthur Ashe’s glasses from a time where someone who actually looked like me was on television (in the 1970s).
I love color and making marks to create highly textured, dimensional paintings where viewers can trace my journey through the layers. I’m inspired by nature—in particular, the rocky coast of Maine where I live.
Our world is endlessly fascinating and beautiful. I’ve been painting landscapes since I was nine and have never tired of it.
My work includes oils and watermedia, representational to abstract. Being a nature lover and a seeker of the all-pervading Divine Spirit, my deepest joy is when I bring these together in my work.
I am concerned with the media’s representation of imagery. Pictures are digitally altered and transferred to the analogue of paint on canvas, creating a memorial of the original.
I am inspired by the colour, detail and striking pose that shows the personality of an animal that may be endangered. The loose nature of the habitat that surrounds it creates the total ambiance.
During this chaotic year of ups and downs, I took my art in a different direction, leaning more to the abstract side. This piece evolved from the chaos in an attempt to find organization.
My works are inspired by a spontaneous painting of landscapes—both representational and abstract. I do not seek to reproduce nature, but to express an interpretation of my inner gaze.
This photo was produced during a time where I became obsessed with my bamboo plant. It depicts how I saw it—a bright beacon of positivity and light through a flower-like lighting treatment used.
I use slightly exaggerated techniques to make the colors richer and brighter, make the details more prominent and depict true nature more vividly and artistically.
The subject of landscape is complex, engaging my interest both aesthetically and spiritually. In choosing to depict the natural world, I try to observe, describe, and interpret the scene as a meditation and a gift to the viewer.
My landscapes are usually of peaceful places. There has always been, and even more so now, a need to escape the stresses of life to a restful place where joy, peace and healing can happen.
I am a self-taught Canadian painter living in Calgary. My subjects combine abstracted backgrounds with representational focal points of birds or trees in acrylic. My aim always is to create the illusion of beauty.
In the series Murmurs there is a unique combination of brush strokes and colours, deeply embodying elements that they evoke. In each painting there is a cascade, a scale, shimmering variations of colour enriched with subtle reflections.
