This etching is on scratch board, and would be something that Witch Sabrina should try because her ink drawings require the same skill.

This is an oil painting on linen. What is different is the mat is trompe L'oell  painted on the linen and not a real mat. The circles on the Indian show that he did the sun ceremony which means he hung from skewers facing the sun until they tore through his chest. The White Buffalo was sacred to the Plains Indians and was called Tatanka.

This is a picture of my puppy Mojo done from memory while running back and forth to my family room done in designer colors. Solitary

This is the only surrealist painting I have done in opaque water colors. See if you can see the naked girl.

This is the start of the last painting I did in designer colors before I had a pituitary tumor that left me shaking to much to paint anymore.  :cry:     Solitary

Thank you so much!   :-D   I'm glad you liked them. I'm not satisfied with two of them and I want to change them if I can. The one with the prong horned antelopes needs a stormy sky behind it to set off the antelopes better. Sometimes I get lazy after painting a detailed painting. The sky should be like the one with the buffalo in it. I might be able to change it because my shaking wouldn't be so critical to do that and it bugs me that I didn't do it originally. My best work was done at art school but they kept everything. I consider myself more an illustrator than a fine artist.

But I just hate commercial art that burns you out. I was doing 64 paintings a day in dyes doing graphic art with no benefits to make ends meet. I had a terrific boss, but I got bored to death. He asked me to design a new series of paintings, and he asked me to show the other artist how I did them because they could not copy them. That was the most fun I ever had working in any job because it was being creative and original. Unfortunately you can't make money in commercial art unless you sell your soul, and fine art is so hit and miss you need two jobs. I think artist are the most exploited of all jobs you can have.  :evil: Solitary

That is some beautiful work, Witch Sabrina!

Here is a drawing I did when I used to draw.

I just realized that this thread has more than one page!

Solitary! What gifted work! So very sorry to hear you cant' paint anymore. It's a similar fate that came to Ralph McQuarrie, the painter who designed all the Star Wars look for the original three movies. He has Parkinson's, and can no longer paint.

I especially like the surrealist astronauts (And I do see the naked girl).

Thanks!  :-D

And I like your pencil drawings that seem to be a lost art. If a person can't draw and make it look like they want, how can they possibly do it from their imagination or paint a picture? Have you tried doing your drawings with different hardness's of pencils? Another good practice is using hard charcoal and making it as light as you can make it and work up to darkness where it needs it.

If you like surrealism check out Dali's paintings below. A man I worked for was better than him in my opinion. When I first went to his house he had a very intricate drawing of a philodendron plant. When I came back when he was done it was a bunch of faces in pointillism for leaves and intertwining geometric designs and shapes. Solitary

I agree! He's the only artist that has done completely original art in my lifetime. A lot of his paintings are done with an air brush. I wonder what kind of night mares he and Dali had? :shock:  

Well maybe not as original as I thought. Like Picasso said: "Good artist have talent, and great artist copy."  :shock:

They both seemed to be obsessed with sex and death.

Actually, Giger was good friends with Dali. In Necronomicon, there's a picture of them hanging out together in Dali's garden. 8-)
