I am a portrait photographer by trade, but since my move to the temperate rain forest of the great Pacific Northwest, I spend my time capturing the natural beauty of my surroundings. For the most part, the only portraits I take these days are of resident chipmunks, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I've found my paradise.

. Rob Reeves - Elbow Deep in Oils
Diatribes and brain bits from an oil painter under construction.
Robert L. Reeves was, much to his surprise, born and raised in Iowa. After some consideration he still considers it a good place to call home. He received his Bachelor's degree in Studio Art from the University of Northern Iowa in '94. Immediately afterward he became sidetracked and wandered from one shiny object to the next, but all the while he never stopped painting.
His art startles the eye with its vibrant color, aggressive yet controlled brush strokes and unrefined style. The paintings depict jostling cars, towering structures, garish neons, and bustling yet solitary figures. Brilliant highlights and deep shadows are used as tools for the construction of form. His use of pure colors, wide brushes, and aggressive strokes creates stark, colorful portraits of very specific moments in our everyday lives. Website

A passionate journey through Art

. Rog Lyngaas’ Paintings
Rog Lyngaas is an artist from Boise, Idaho, USA. He paints at the edge between classic and abstract landscapes; using an alla prima method with oils, and sometimes plein air. Mentors describe his style as “primitive, expressionistic, & interpretive”. In the raw there are 4 values, shapes and designs, 3 colors from 7 pigments, warm and cool, and the mind of the beholder to finish the painting; because we all walk blindly until we have an aide to guide us on the shining path. Via this the viewer becomes one with the window; and visa versa. Thus completion of thought becomes action of being.

Maintaining that her work defies precise classification, Sharon Hart describes herself as a “Contemporary Realist” who combines Impressionist philosophies with highly developed realism in the subject. Sharon has always had an appreciation for the creative arts. Her mother, an accomplished painter, encouraged Sharon to explore her interest in nature, literature, philosophy and the visual arts. This passion progressed through college degrees, numerous commissions, awards and accolades to a full time pursuit of painting. Sharon’s subsequent life choices led her to many corners of the world, broadening her global perspective and advancing her understanding of the cultural impact and import of the arts.

Returning to the United States in the early 1990s, Sharon’s travels, secured in memory and documented in photographs, emerged with fresh abandon as lush landscapes and seascapes that have become her signature. Sharon has created artwork that that is cosmopolitan yet distinctively American. It is also an oeuvre that conscientiously refuses to settle on a readily identifiable style than her own engaging and eclectic approach to the work. In 1999, Sharon chose to work as a full-time studio artist living in the quiet, natural beauty of New Mexico in order to begin a focused self-study of oil painting and watercolors. As a selfprofessed student of life, who lives with intense conviction, her favorite subjects are those that navigate the delicate relationship between expanded consciousness and passion. Sharon's paintings are held in private and corporate collections in the United States, the United Kingdom and Europe.

. Sharon's art blog
Sharon is a Calgary-based professional artist with signature status in the Federation of Canadian Artists (AFCA), International Plein Air Painters (IPAP) and the Alberta Society of Artists (ASA). She is also a sought after art instructor, teaching regular classes in Calgary and traveling throughout western Canada teaching watercolour and mixed media art workshops. Sharon’s paintings reflect her interest in surface texture and colour. Whether capturing the essence of the landscape 'en plein air' in oils, portraying the figure or flowers in various water media, or creating abstract, intuitive mixed-media works, her interpretations of the beauty around her, as well as her vivid imagination make for an eclectic and varied body of work. Whether in her studio or on location, Sharon creates works that she hopes will reveal God's creative majesty. The viewer is encouraged to investigate the multitude of subtle layerings and colour effects in the paint and paper, as well as the layers of meaning in her work. Sharon creates in all of the watermedia, often combining them with collage.

. SooZeQue's Arroyo Junkers and Other Resurrections
S u s i e D a v i s
Metal Artist
My name is Susie Davis, aka, SooZeQue. I was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico and I’m positive that is where my love for art started.
In 2005, after a year of battling ovarian cancer, and 22 years taking care of VP’s and managers as an Executive Assistant and even more years taking care of 6 kids, I decided it was time to take care of me. I quit my job and my kids had all flown the coop by then, so I found myself with plenty of time on my hands to finally delve deep into a lifelong love of creating.
All my life I have dabbled in a variety of different art forms. I worked with clay as a young girl and always tried to draw, but never felt passionate about either one. I’ve loved working with stained glass for about 25 years and that knowledge led me to the crystal cross bottle art I create. I have also tried my hand at creating jewelry, mosaics, and watercolor painting.
In 2007, I took a welding class and was introduced to a plasma cutter. It was love at first cut and I had to have my own. That started a union between my love for junk store junking and turning all that trash into treasure. I have always recycled and I find pleasure in collecting what other people might throw away and turning it into something truly unique and different, whether as art or something for my home. I enjoy taking something like steel that is so hard and turning it into something that actually looks soft, as seen in the shovels and wheelbarrows that I cut out. The concept of life renewed fuels my inspiration. All my work is cut freehand with a hand held plasma cutter. This journey takes me in many different directions figuring out how to use steel and making interesting and unique creations as you see in my latest endeavor of steel guitars.
I am a self taught artist with only a few classes under my belt. I don’t have an art degree just a love for it and I’ve often said I must have Art Attention Deficit Disorder since I’m usually creating something different as often as the seasons change.

I've been interested in art since I was young...I remember someone getting me a paint by number kit of a horse for my 10th birthday. I hated the way the colors didn't blend, so I took it upon myself to "blend" them myself & never looked back. I am working on a degree in fine arts, between moves with the Air Force & homeschooling the last of 7 kids. Might take a while! :)
While I like working in many different mediums, & I find painting is much easier, I honestly prefer drawing with a plain old #2 pencil. The more detailed, the better.

. susicreates
I have been into art since I was in my highchair (so my mom says) and have dabbled in just about everything. Right now my favs are clay, collage, photography... depending on the week. I have described myself as having AADD - artist attention deficit disorder - depending on what I'm reading online or taking a class for. I don't have studio space, just a 4'x6' area that has my computer and all of my paints, papers and all. So I end up with a workable space about 12"x24". But I get it done!

Wow, Is That Really Colored Pencil?
I knew I was on to something when I began drawing with colored pencils. I’m a self-taught artist and I’ve tried everything from oil painting to screen printing. Colored pencils, though, are perfect for drawing precise details in a realistic style. My favorite subjects are simple everyday objects. I use archival paper, layering many colors until they are vivid and saturated. Visual concepts such as light and reflection are features of my work. I am a juried member of the Best of Missouri Hands and the Greater St. Louis Art Association. I am also a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America.

I have been drawing and painting since I was about three years old. For me, creativity is a lifestyle. I found out that I have to live a rural life to be creative. And I prefer the silence of the woods to the noise of the cities...
In summer, I love to hike, to swim in lakes, to hear the buzzing of the bees and to observe the flight of the dragonflies. In winter, I welcome the snow and the dark afternoons and I light them up with candles and with a fire in the iron stove. I'm interested in many things, in regional studies, in studies of foreign cultures and especially in Scandinavian literature. I like to set my own pace, to knit and crochet, make music, bake my own bread, observe nature, collect herbs, drink tea and Italian coffee, learn Norwegian...the list is even longer.

. Tina Steele Lindsey Paintings
Tina Steele Lindsey is a second generation artist after both parents. Drawing came easily to her in childhood, and though she enjoyed it immensely it was dance, and later music, professionally for a time, that occupied most her time. It was in her adulthood during a visit with her father, Victor Denfrey Steele, that he tricked her into doing a painting in his studio. From there she was hooked and went on essentially on her own crediting her ability to easily grasp and idea or technique to, " a lifetime of watching a master at work." Her main focus today is abstraction commissions for both private and corporate collectors, but in her spare time she will tell you she goes straight to figurative work. Tina resides in the metro-Atlanta area.

I have a BA in Fine Arts from Westmont College in beautiful Santa Barbara California. I have experience working with many different mediums, but I have always preferred oils. I love how versatile they are and the various effects they can produce. Lately I've been working on small daily paintings, I find it to be a wonderful way to keep my paintings fresh and loose. Etsy

The Pinup Blog started out as a way for me to promote The Pinup Shop. Very quickly, though, my love for this art form shined through my writing, and The Pinup Blog took on a life of its own.
I also create non-commercial/commissioned art that is very personal and deals with themes that are predominant in my life, such as womanhood, gender and sexuality, on one hand, and self observation, alienation and introspection on the other.

. The Zen-Images Ikebana Blog
Baiko is the Japanese name of artist Astrid Stadt, Ikebana master (Sensei) of the Sogetsu School of Japan. Baiko means plum blossom, a very revered flower in Japan. White to rose in color, the plum blossom appears in early February, a harbinger of spring. The Japanese admire it for its resilience against the cold of winter. Baiko is a symbol of perseverance in the face of adversity. Astrid received the name Baiko when the Sogetsu School awarded her the title Sensei. All the prints of her creations are stamped with her Baiko seal.
Baiko has been chosen several times as a Featured Artist by Imagekind, one of the internet's leading artist member printing companies. She received the Spanish Arte y Pico Award. And she has been selected Featured Artist of the Week by the popular art blog, Empty Easel.
Here is what Empty Easel wrote about Baiko's Ikebana Art:
"...her creations are like organic sculptures, made up of living flowers, stems, and branches to form free-flowing works of three-dimensional art."
I’d honestly never seen anything like this before....and I was amazed at how artistic flower arrangements could be."
In Baiko's art there is "...a beautiful balance of positive and negative space, while creating focal points with colors....I love the calm simplicity of Baiko’s work.."
Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging, originated during the 6th century in Japan with the introduction of Buddhism from China. It was the custom to place floral offerings in front of altars to honor the Buddha and the souls of the dead. Over time, these floral offerings evolved into floral arrangements designed to express the harmony between man and nature and between spirit and matter. By the 13th century, the practice of Ikebana became a form of meditation for Zen Buddhist priests. In 1929, a radical new approach to Ikebana was launched by Sofu Teshigahara, the late founder of the Sogetsu School. Teshigahara broke with rigid classical rules and emphasized the artist’s freedom of expression. He said, “Ikebana is not just about sticking a flower into a vase: it is about the love and need of the artist to create beautiful forms.”

Growing up, painting was always a sweet indulgence. A way to unwind, relax and see where color would take me. I took studio art classes as an undergraduate in college as a way to balance my science-heavy course load. I never believed I would be so fortunate to paint for a living. Fifteen years and two daughters later, I am living that dream. My inspirations come in many forms: the beautiful vistas of California, travels and the simplest of things that surround me: a sofa, a cup of tea, a favorite pair of shoes.

. VanDerHoek Art
Born and raised in Southern California, I grew up in a family that engendered an early appreciation for the visual arts. After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the California College of the Arts in Oakland, California, I worked as a graphic designer for 11 years. The last four years of my career were spent working as an art director for a women’s clothing company.
Needing a creative outlet after the birth of my first child I began painting. Focusing on Plein Air painting, I use bold brush strokes and thick paint to render the scene. My intent is to simplify the forms and model them with enough texture to make the viewer aware of the paint. I am always looking for an opportunity to use unexpected color in unexpected places on the canvas all while capturing the experience of the scene I am painting.
I hope that a study of a well-traveled path, a building or a group of field workers will bring respect to and celebrate our place in the landscape. At the same time I seek to document California today, the same way early California painters have done.

. Victor Denfrey Steele Art
Victor Denfrey Steele's first career was as a Marine Fighter Pilot. After retiring from the Marine Corps he began his second career in art. Vic studied for four years in Atlanta with the Chatovs - Roman, Constantin, and finally Roman's son Marc. Roman and Constantin, now deceased, were Russian immigrants "of the old school."
Vic's work is heavily influenced by the Chatovs but he evolved a slightly more impressionistic style. His figures, landscapes, and still life paintings are realistic in shape, form, and value, although the intensity of his colors may be exaggerated or muted to suit his purpose. Sadly, Victor passed away in early April, 2008, and is greatly missed by his family, but his legacy continues on. His blog is dedicated to him and updated by his artist daughter,

. Watercolor Haiku
Kristine Fretheim
In this complex, fast-paced world, watercolor is my oasis where time stands still and the world comes into focus as though I’m seeing it for the first time. Painting is a meditation calling for vivid focus and inner calm. I’m drawn to the luminous chiaroscuro effects of lights and shadows. Though my work is rendered in a realistic style, I emphasize the abstract nature of my subject matter. I think of my paintings as visual haiku. My hope is to awaken hearts to the simple beauty around us. Website

. Watercolor Muse
Self Discovery through Watercolor
Sheila Estep, is a Watercolor Artist living in Northern California. Her background is in Information Technology before the serious artist emerged in 2008. Mostly self taught in techniques with a couple of workshops along the way. Her passion is in painting subjects that provoke emotions from deep within a person’s soul.

I began painting in 2009, and had to try watercolor. It is an amazing medium and one can spend a lifetime trying to master it. I have continued to love the way the paint blends, blossoms, and melds, creating such wonderful spontaneous and happy accidents. My formal education in the medium includes six years of weekly lessons from Sandy Maudlin, a well-known and award-winning local artist, and workshops from internationally known artists Janet Rogers and Carol Carter. I paint what makes me happy: a certain slant of strong light on an object that creates an interesting shadow shape, a bold pairing of complementary colors pushed to the limit, and anything that reminds me of a wonderful trip I've taken with my husband. I am currently trying to learn more through DVDs and workshops to learn more about fluid acrylics, and have begun a series of crows that seem to have arrived and taken over my thoughts.

. Windy Kai: Hummingbird Studios
I was born in Honolulu Hawaii while my father was stationed overseas in the early 70’s. After the war I was raised in a small Texas town where the extent of my art exposure was framed bluebonnets painted by ladies 60 years my elder. While these kinds of works have their place in the hearts of many, I felt no connection to the work nor the artists, neither aesthetically nor generationally. It wasn’t until college when I moved out of the small country town that I was exposed to a plethora of art that finally spoke to me and I knew from the first installation I saw outside the building where my first college class awaited that my life had changed and that art would be a part of it.
My label of “Undecided Major” immediately changed and I proceeded to get both an AA and BA in Arts and Education. I’ve been teaching for sixteen years now and over the years have continued my own art off and on. Teenagers can be a great source of inspiration! It was only after my grandmother’s death that Hummingbird Studios was born and I began to pursue my art on a more full time basis. What I had been perfectly content to do part time simply was not enough anymore. It consumed me and for the last two years Art, which has influenced my life even from those bluebonnets (it’s just as important to know with what you don’t connect with as what you do) Art no longer influenced my life, it became my life. It’s no longer a choice, no longer part time….I’m 40 years old and now closer to the age of those little old ladies who painted those bluebonnets all those years ago….and as the saying goes, Life begins at 40, well…in respect to my artistic life, I can vouch for that!

. Women, Art, Life: Weaving It All Together

. Wooden Spoon Editions
I'm an artist living and working in the Lake Minnetonka are of Minnesota. Instead of using a traditional baron, I use a wooden spoon to burnish the paper and create each print by hand. I have experience in several printmaking techniques such as: intaglio, lithography, monoprinting, screen printing, and several others. While I enjoy the differing effects of each technique, I love the process of lino and wood block prints from start to finish the best!
