Wendy J St Christopher : Featured Artist

Sell Art Online

Wendy's quote on her website portfolio is very beautiful and at the same time very true to her art.

'If a little dreaming is dangerous, the
cure for it is not to dream less,
but to dream more ...
to dream ALL the time.
- Marcel Proust (1871-1922), French novelist

Her Reply is, "'My dreams are always in color.'
- Wendy J. St. Christopher, Artist

How true these words are for Wendy!

Art Prints

Nightwing is an abstract design, but I see a butterfly wing!

Stalker is another abstract work, but what draws me into this image is not only the fantastic color, but the triangular composition and form.

Look Through Any Window - But this isn't just any window, it's a window filled with color and an exhilarating sense of literally being pulled into the window!

Wendy describes this work as "A square, twin-view of the San Antonio Skyline, featuring the Hemisfair Tower of the Americas. From an original photograph taken in San Antonio, Texas."

I don't know why, but for some reason this work reminds me of the Twin Towers in happier times, but as we all know, abstract art is very much left to the viewer to interperate the work.

Art Prints

Magnolia Dream is most certainly the work of someone with a fantastic sense of imagination, and Wendy has no shortage of that in the least!

Photography Prints

Da Vinci's Outpost is an interesting work with a composition not commonly seen, and I'll let Wendy say why by way of her own description of her work. "This photo-manipulation is one of three pieces inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci's illustrations of flying machines. Other 'Da Vinci' images are available in this gallery." For me, this work heavily resonates inspiration from Da Vinci's drawings. Having drawn them in study myself, the inspiration is not only a new and unique work, but a work that draws interest from the viewer by way of the composition and formation of line and solid form.

REM Dreams is a work with a meaning, and one I strongly relate to! Wendy says "Being a practicing insomniac, I often think about sleep when I should be sleeping. This image is a dreamy manipulation of an original, fractal design."

Is there an insomniac out there that couldn't relate to REM Dreams? I doubt it. Constant thought and ideas seem to blossom in the very mind that is trying so desperately to sleep.

Photography Prints

Ajax - Detail of handbrake between Union Pacific train cars. I find images like this, although the subject might be common as an entirety, when an artist plays on a single detailed element is the moment when the work becomes "fine art". The colors and line of composition are excellent!

Art Prints

I really like this image! Not only does Wendy clearly have a great sense of humor, but she also knows how to bring the best out of her subject matter. Wendy describes her image as "A 'Hairy Yucca', photographed at the San Antonio Botanical Garden in San Antonio, Texas. These plants are known for the curly, hair-like filaments edging the sword-shaped leaves. "

The colors are beautiful, but again, it's the fine attention to detail; pin sharp imagery and excellent composition that truly set this work apart from other "hairy yucca's".

Once again, I seem to repeat myself with my words, and yet I cannot represent an artist's entire portfolio sufficiently to do them justice. Feature after feature finds me among some of the most talented fine artists emerging today, and each has a lot to offer. Wendy J.St. Christopher is certainly no exception, so please visit her portfolio and enjoy what she creates. I promise you a feast!

Ernie Echols : Featured Artist

Ernie Echols, like other artists I feature, is also someone I greatly admire. His love of nature, humanity, family and his friends is beautiful, and this very beauty shines in his artwork. No one can fail to see the magnificent inner heart and soul of Ernie.

Ernie has found deep and devoted ways to express his talents through his inspirations. His talents are well defined in his wildlife and nature photography. He spends most of his free time searching for that special shot and his ability to get up close to wildlife enables him to capture unique photos. He always manages to capture the expressions and moods in the faces of wildlife.

Angelina Vick : Featured Artist

Sell Art Online

The Distance:
The worst part of an argument with a lover...is the distance it creates. Inspired by Edward and Bella.

Angelina Vick works in Multimedia and focuses primarily on photography, painting and digital art. Her work is not only exciting to view, but is also unique in presentation - her own emotions frequently confront the viewer in an interesting and yet gentle way as shown by the featured image above and below.

Art Prints

Soul Mates - Angelina says "'I think that there is a perfect match for most people, but not everyone.. I met my match when I was 18 years old, and in every way...I can see he is exactly what I needed. When I think of soul mates....I think it's the person you cannot live without...the one other person who makes you better than what you would be without them. That person who sees you...really sees you for who are...and loves you for it... First Kiss, Soul Mates, Star Crossed Lovers and Entwined is a 4 part series."


Photography Prints

Ballerina Lap:
"Ballet is so graceful, the movement and costumes. So much time spent practicing and practicing....and then when it's time for the performance, you patiently wait for your turn to dance. This is the waiting."

Within her art Angelina explores nature, music, and words that move her, along with the delicate balance of life and what she finds beautiful. She admits to being a passionate woman, and invites her viewers into her mind by way of looking at her art.

On the points Angelina makes of herself, I can fully agree with her. Her works brim with emotion, beauty, beliefs and each nuance of life that is the product of a very curious and yet interesting mind. If I had to say anything about Angelina Vick's work, it is that she lays her soul bare for all within her art, and it's a beautiful journey to peruse her artworks.

Art Prints

Romancing:
"Part of a series, flowers with similar fade out to the edges, I picture 3 different flowers hanging side by side. Check out my flower gallery and you will see the other ones I am making. Every hear of Flypaper Textures? I used Lemoncello to make this image."

Art Prints

Sanctuary:
"This is a lake at Robbers Cave, in Oklahoma. To say this sight was magical would be an understatement."

A personal favorite among many!-:

Photography Prints

Strut:
He is a magnificent. Happily following instructions from the fellow photographer that was with me that day, Ernie Echols. He was strutting and calling, shaking his feathers and showing off.


Art Prints

Primary:
"This work started out as an abstract tree, acrylic on canvas. I enjoyed the design, but found that it was a little too simple for my liking. What you see here is the painting after digital alteration....multiple layers. I also used Flypaper Textures in my digital layering."


Photography Prints

Pink Calla Lillies 2:
I am very fond of calla lilies, next to roses they are my favorite. I digitally darkened this image from the original.


Art Prints

Touch of Class Trio
Beautiful and intricate design work!

Art Prints

Watching Over Me In Darkness:
Angelina says "I believe there are angels among us." I happen to agree with Angelina!

Art Prints

Lilies Of The Field:
"This painting is about the different stages of a woman's life".

It has been an immense pleasure to feature the work of Angelina Vick. As you can see, her works are emotive and relative to what surrounds us all, except that Angelina shows us how she sees things.

Featured Artist : David Lane

Art Prints

David Lane is one of the most interesting artists I have had the pleasure of meeting online. I say "meeting" as David is an artist one cannot help but notice. From me, that is a compliment.

I make no secret of the fact that going through many allergies with oil painting that my own world was literally turned upside down overnight, and it was only then that I had no option but to gain an insight into the digital art world.
Although my allergen was finally discovered and solved, I still retained the Digital Arts as a medium I had come to love. The computer does not produce art for a Digital Artist - and the artist works every bit as hard as the traditional artist - it is just different - but beautiful in its own right, and with David Lane's work I am about to show you how beautiful it can be.

David Lane, without knowing, was another artist who was and is a great inspiration to me. I like him. I like his art. I like his sense of adventure with his artistic ability. He's an artist I hold in very high esteem and I view him as one of those artists that holds the key to the future. David Lane is without doubt, ahead of his time.

David Lane says of himself in his Biography : "was born in a small town of in the heart of the finger lakes region. I'm not sure when I became interested in art. I started painting with water colors and Acrylics while I was in Canada for a while during the Viet Nam war. I became serious about art a short while after my tour of duty in Viet Nam. while I was getting a degree in Computer Science.

Today all of my art is done on a computer using various programs and techniques. My works tend to be eclectic , from straight unmodified photographs, to digitally painted 'mindscapes' . I like to have fun and experiment with different methods and tools. My goal is to evoke some response in the viewer, doesn't matter to me what the response is. The worst insult you can give me is to be indifferent to my work.

I have works in private collections throughout the world."

David certainly attains his goals and evokes responses in his viewers, so please understand that in this feature, I can in no way do his work justice as his portfolio is beyond the scope of this blog, so please visit his portfolio and immerse yourself in the delights of another world!
