I love this style of surrealism. There is so much to look at, so many hidden signals and so many obvious images from the human experien...

To Me. this is an incredible work of art. It's in water color and shows that mediums transparentness and yet it has a solid 3 dimension...


Art is a Toy for the Mind by CBSites
Art is a Toy for the Mind
Oil on canvas.  24x16"   Inspired by spring.   The title was motivated by the question, "What is Art?"  Art has such a broad meaning but when we say "the Art of X" the X has inspired creativity at it's core regardless of what X is.  For example, "The Art of War"  does War have beauty?  "The Art of Cooking" Cooking has something but does it inspire?  When you ponder all of the possibilities, the best answer to what is art? is Art is a toy for the mind. 
Password by CBSites
Just a jumble of shapes holding a secret.  The secret could be a password or maybe not.  8.5x11" watercolor and ink on cold press paper.
I have had the rare opportunity to wake up every morning and view an old 1880 oil painting by the famous British Impressionist  James Charles (1851-1906)   An amazing impressionist painter. 

James Charles, Untitled

    It was just a freak accident that I connected with the right dealer at the right time and could buy this painting.  It really belongs in a museum. James Charles's father was a cabinet maker and raised a  gifted child.  He was groomed and accepted into the Royal Academy and a student he apparently made many friends.   Bored with the RA's structure and due to events in the art-world, he dropped out of the RA and joined the impressionists movement.  He finished at the Académie Julian in France and pursued and promoted  the plein-air movement  where basically the artists worked to capture the lighting of out-door nature.   The painting I have is untitled, but consists of a straw thatched roof farm house, a typical landscape scene in some older James Charles paintings.  It's very rich impasto technique gives the scene a 3D impressionistic relief look but the colors are from fall.   It is Autumn 1882 in Britain and a fire burns in the fireplace of a thatched roof farmhouse.   Grasses are dry and trees, while still green but has a brown shade of the seasons change upon them.  Unlike the impressionists like Monet, Degas, Cezanne,  James Charles was not shy of detail.  He will add these amazingly detailed highlights to the larger brush work that complete the picture as can be seen in the in the roof and grasses. I've really come to enjoy this painting more and more.   Even more impressive when you come to appreciate that it is plein-air and was all done outdoors at the scene being painted.

Can the universe have created anything more visually stunning as you? I'm just an ordinary computer geek that loves art. I studied physics and visualize everything science in my mind. I love imagining what 11 dimensional string theory looks like where somehow the smallest piece of matter, dust if you will, gets mass or a static charge by the vibration of an N-dimensional string. Did you know an electron has no color? But an electron-microscope will show shape with electrons. I enjoy the classics for their techniques and subjects (Rubin, Dali,Moreau, Sargent, Miro, Monet, All of them ) and now the thosand other Deviantartists!
Like WOW! You are stunning. Paint it, shape it, build it, make it. Walk outside, look up into the sky, and wake up the Universe today!

Hi ! I found an AWESOME concert from Parliament/Funkadelic !!! G.Clinton and his crew are at their best. Eddie Hazel is not here and Maggot Brain is not played. However it's actually the best concert from the Mothership I've watched. So if you got 1H22 of free time, enjoy !!! [link]

Your welcome. I really like how you captured "Still-life" in your painting; Not perfect or photo like, but painted with an pleasant appeal. Beautiful wall hanger. Bravo!
