phase one: mini art doc

This is phase one of my reintroduciton. Although you may ask what does he mean, I mean that this is the first phase of a new mini documentary art video, which I recently produced to promote my art. This is an area that I have had some difficulties with, and I know that I am not the only one to experiecne this. My hope is that this new phase of stylized mini documentaries will alter that belief. Please follow the LINK to my video called ‘modern Shaman’

Thank you, hälts

Portrait of an unknown man

I came across a picture called ‘Portrait of a Man’ by Willard Clay, who I really do not know much about. I do know that Willard possibly photographed a Native American man sometime ago in the badlands of North Dekota. I first saw the photograph on a book cover, ‘The Native Americans’ An Illustrated History. It caught my eye immediately. When I researched it a little bit more I found that the man in the photo did not have a name. The caption on the picture simply read ‘portrait of a man’ by Willard Clay. I decided to draw from the photo and made it into this watercolour. I have a tendency of starting with the eyes. In doing so I make an immediate connection with the subject I am working on. Whenever I draw ideas always come to me and in a flash I saw the man’s head transform into the land, and went with it. The idea being you and I are part of the land, the sea, the animals, the plants, the sky, the history, everything. We all come from somewhere, and our connection is closer than what we may think.

I felt that watercolour really suited this portrait, and I went with some really nice pigments and used a high quality paper. If there’s one thing I do feel is important, it would be using quality materials. If you are going to spend time on something you love doing, than doing it with the best available products is the way to go. I want to provide people with the most beautiful art that brings a sense of calm, peace and tranquillity in this lifetime.

this one….

This one is for my friends and family, all families, for the ones who love me, or hate me, for those who are like minded, for those who rise above, for those below, for those lonely souls who I have met before, to my lonely soul that hides behind closed doors, for the people of this country and for those all over the worldly, do I honor, love, apologize, bow low too, and say hi I love you, to the ones who came, and the ones who went, to the Earth, our mother whom do I respect. Here here to the realization of what freedom is, to living with the land and respecting this gift, that we may be free, free to live without being at the mercy of those who would rather build castles than help you or me. This is for the one and only, whomever, whatever that be, this is for you whom without I am nothing.
