Experimenting with Digital Art on ArtRage

I saw a post that artbychristinemallabandbrown did the other day about a digital art android program called ArtRage. I loved the art she posted, so I decided to give it a try! I’m still very much learning how the program works and just fooling around, but here are my first few abstract artworks from ArtRage!

Spray Paint Canvas Art

Lately I’ve gotten into spray paint art. I guess it was a visual artform I had never tried before, so the challenge of learning it appealed to me. It is actually much harder than I imagined lol. Learning how to control the spray just right so that you don’t pool the paint, put on too much paint, or get it all over yourself (as spray paint is a pain in the ass to get off your skin).

For my first few paintings I went entirely abstract, just so I could play around and get a feel for the art medium. Here are my first few paintings, which are on canvas panels:

If you like any of them, they are up for sale on my ebay store!

First Photography Award on Photocrowd

Recently I told you guys I had really gotten into photography and was entering contests on a site called Photocrowd. Yesterday I found out that I had won my first award on the site! It isn’t a major award, but I won a crowd favorite award for being in the top half of the crowd choice for a contest about “The Abstract Universe”. Here is the photo that won the award:

The photography talent on Photocrowd is amazing (many are professionals), so I am honored to even compete with them and come close to the top of any contest!

One of My Favorite Recent Artworks

I just sold this oil pastel painting the other day, but thought I would share because it is one of my favorite recent artworks I have made. I like the earthy, a little bit dark atmosphere, and the figures in line. If I remember right, this was inspired by an old, vintage photo of men waiting in a line to go to their factory job.

3 Old Acrylic Abstract Paintings

These 3 abstract acrylic paintings were actually made many years ago. I came across them not too long ago and decided to put them up for sale with my other art on my Ebay store. I was pleasantly surprised when they sold rather quickly. I do think I’ve come a long way as an artist in some ways, but it is nice to know even my earliest attempts at serious art appeal to others 🙂
