    ArtFreaks.com is more than an art site... Even art freaks have lives outside of their art - and I would like to think of this website as a place where people can just drop by and enjoy a friendly chat, post their news, plug their own high quality websites and generally chill-out for a few minutes after a busy day! So... As far as I am concerned, it is very valid for you to post here!

    People Who Loves smb eventually loves artfreak. I'm not alcoholic, I just joined artfreak because of its main topic which is all about arts, artfreak's a very useful site, though I'm not sure if it's valid for me to do my posts here. Hence, I enjoyed reading and posting in this site.. P.S I love Philippines!

    The completion of my latest painting represents two 'firsts' for me! Firstly, having been struggling with issues of lack of inspiration, finding the tiime and actually being able to complete my previous painting, (started last year some time) - this is my first complete painting of the year 2012 Secondly, this is my first ever painting that was not based on a photograph - and no photographic reference material was used - not even for the large (lily-like?) flower... The koi pond, right in the middle of that lovely, rough and very green cottage garden lawn was just my idea of a perfect view from my ideal kitchen window! Let me know what you think!

    The priest entered his donkey in a race and it won. The priest was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the race again and it won again. The local paper read: PRIEST'S ASS IN FRONT The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the Priest not to enter the donkey in another race. The next day, the local paper headline read: BISHOP SCRATCHES PRIEST'S ASS This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the priest to get rid of the donkey. The priest decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline the next day: NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN The bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for £10. The next day the paper read: NUN SELLS ASS FOR £10 This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the Donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild. The next day the headlines read: NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE The bishop was buried the next day. The moral of the story is ... being concerned about public opinion can bring you much grief, misery and even shorten your Life. So be yourself and enjoy life!! Stop worrying about everybody else's ass and You'll be a lot happier and live longer!

    Hi Group, I've been experimenting with mixed media (watercolor, pencil, pen) and the fine art of cartooning. It is an interesting and challenging hobby but I enjoy the creative process. I will be posting my work for review and feedback. All thoughts and criticism will be appreciated. Bob

    Hi: I'm a new member. Being new I don't quite understand the overtones and the undertones of the introduction protocols: I'm just going to write it short and straight. Of course I'm an artist. I paint only in oils. I often lay in a painting (avergage size about 30"X40") with a broad construction type pencial, holding it with only 2 fingers, my thumb and my forefinger. After roughly laying it in, I continue to work it up with usually oil pastels. I like Senelier's but can't always afford it, so use what I have. Beside Senelier's is for finish work, it's too precious to use at the beginning. After that I'll start working in oils, but I'll still use oil pastels as part of my workup medium. After I start, if I like the way the picture is going, I work fairly intensely for at least 8 hours a day, drinking mostly coffee, maybe with a little Napa Valley Red. I work from about 2 in the afternoon until about 10 at night. If I work intensely I usually finish a new picture in about a week. I can do about 50 pictures a year, if the financies are right and I can buy paints and brushes and other materials. To get away from the art and to refresh myself, I like physical outdoor participant sports-climbing, tennis, skiing, I have a mountain and a road bike, and I usually start my day by running on the street at least 30 minutes each morning. It's not a lot of fun but you feel better afterwords. I've spent the last 6 months working on building an art website, with a large photogallery. It was very hard for me because I am no webmaster, that's why it took me so long. I finally finished and got it up about a month ago. I hope to be able to get used to this website and to be able to visit the galleries of the very creative and gifted artists who display and blog here. Starr

    Vic, it was interesting to me to read this blog entry. I had not thought about my own inspiration for a painting very much. The paintings of mine that you see come completely from my imagination. The scenes exist nowhere until I paint them. I always set down to blank canvas with no idea of what will be the end result. I like bright colors and subjects that distort the mind a little bit. Feel good places that needed to exist.
