Einstein and The Art Of Genius

To me, the term "genius" doesn't necessarily mean someone who is born with an immeasuable intellect, but rather someone who has the focus and aptitude to intake data and information as a pleasure, which in turn creates the genius that he or she has become through this thirst for knowledge, hence the books reaching the sky - symbolic of "the sky is the limit". In Latin there is a term "art artis gratia", meaning "art for arts sake". The same could be said for knowledge, "knowledge for the sake of knowledge."
Albert Einstein is only one of many who have inspired many of us to study and learn, always seeking and challenging our own thoughts rather than the thoughts of others.

Vintage Memories Of Love

Art Prints

Memories are special to each of us and I think that our first love is someone we remember forever.
That first bloom of love and romantic feelings - the bloom of feelings never before experienced. Passion ignites and although it may fade with time, the memory lives on.
The water is wide. I cannot get o'er
And neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row my love and i
I leaned my back up against an oak
I thought it was a trusty tree
But first it swayed and then it broke
And so my false love did unto me
Oh love is handsome and love is kind
And love's a jewel when it is new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like morning dew

Do You Like Vintage Art? Modern Vintage Art Is My Current Love

Photography Prints

A few weeks back I started a new position doing photographic restoration and painting. As a side-kick or incentive for me to accept the position a new course was also offered to me and I took the job with pleasure just so I could do the course.

I know Photoshop, in fact I know it backwards, but this course isn't about Photoshop, it's about mixed media and the way we as artists think. In my not so humble opinion I feel the print on demand work can have an artist trying to please his or her public rather than do what he or she would love to do, or feels within.

At the moment I adore the Vintage Style Art, but I sure am doing it because I love it and not to please any customers. If they are pleased and like it, that is simply an added bonus to enjoy.

So here is my week+ worth of work whilst not creating, or setting out to create just "pretty pictures".
