Kelen, Michael Fornadley, Stefan Fiedorowicz, Pol Ledent offering original Oil Paintings artworks. Using oil paints is the process of painting with varied pigments with a medium of drying oil that often includes linseed oil, poppy seek oil, safflower oil and walnut oil as a binder. Artists use several different oils to achieve different effects. Oil may also be boiled with resin or frankincense to create a varnish that has a lot of body and gloss. Oil paint was first used by Indian (Buddhist) and Chinese painters in western Afghanistan between the 5th and 10th century and did not gain popularity until about the 15th century. It's use finally migrated west during the Middle Ages and became the main medium during Northern Renaissance to replace the previous use of tempera paints. Norther European painters such as Jan van Eyck is often credited for inventing the use of oil paint on wood panel. After it's success in Northern Europe the use of oil paint migrated south to Italy where such notable artists as Leonardo da Vinci use it to pain the famous "Mona Lisa". Towards the end of the 15th century and beginning of the 16th century wood panels were replaced by canvas and oil on canvas as a medium became very popular and still is today. Rubens, Titian, Rembrandt, Raphael as well as Vermeer, most of the Impressionists such as Monet, Renoir as well as Van Gogh and Picasso and Kandinsky all uses oil paints as their main medium to apply paint onto canvas.

  • Artists Describing Their Art:

    Vladimir Volosov - I was born in 1937 in Leningrad, USSR (now St. Petersburg, Russia). My way to art was a lengthy one. Before becoming an artist, I studied for thirty years at the forefront of modern physics as a PhD scientist and professor, author more than 150 scientific articles in contemporary laser physics. Thirty years of strenuous scientific work on the front edge of modern physics gives me a deep feeling for the anxiety and unprotectedness of the world's beauty. The formula, "beauty saves the world" fits my own attitude. My creed is also embodied in the statement: "to have time to realize everything given to you by Nature." At the threshold of my fifties, I decided to live one more life, a new, alluring life of the free artist. I walked away from my established scientific career and completely devoted myself to painting. In 1991 I founded and headed the association "Light, Color and Art" to connect with scientists engaged in the arts. The main directions of my paintings are lyrical realism and abstract compositions. My paintings are about light, color, atmosphere and space. For me, the most important elements are light and color and their juxtaposition/nexus/meeting of...

    Eileen Seitz - I was born and raised on the Island of Manhattan, NYC. My spirit learned early about the concrete jungle with its melting pot of cultures and the grand variety of NYC's architecture . It was at the age of 16 that I first traveled to the tropical green jungles OF THE Caribbean. I saw the turquoise seas, the foliage, the flowers when i felt the truth and beauty there overwhelming while inspiring me. Seeing the flow of nature with its colors and harmonies,I feel to bring to life both on paper and canvas. My true joy, comes from two things, the acutal art of painting of letting the spirit speak through my brush, and seeing that spirit reborn in the faces and hearts of the people who come to share my anonymous gift....

    Eileen Seitz - David Larkins - I've always been intrigued by the luminosity and transparencies found in watercolor and acrylic mediums. I believe an artist must experience the painting - to absorb the surroundings, the atmosphere, to have a oneness with the subject matter before the first brush stroke is applied. My style is described as "Abstract Realism" and my strength is found in the composition. I'm drawn to diverse subject matter that challenges the viewer to see abstraction in the ordinary - to meld the "real" world with the "abstract". ...

    Guy Octaaf Moreaux - One of the biggest luxuries in life, is to live surrounded by beauty. This is what I am trying to do. Harmony is an integral part of beauty, this is what I am trying to convey in my work. It is indeed a necessity for me to create. It has always been this way for as far as I can remember. Not creating makes me feel empty and unfulfilled. In every day life it pervades all my actions, from cooking to finding different places to visit, walk, etc....Have a look at the furniture I created lower in my portfolio. The architects who sold my furniture were the first ones to sell my paintings. For painting, nature inspires me a lot, many other sights or thoughts as well. If I end up painting a landscape, a portrait or something else, it is because I felt a strong emotion and an urge to do it. Hopefully my paintings inspire other people and radiate harmony in the home or office where they hang. Living in Africa now and having lived in North and South America and in northern and southern Europe, I picked up bits of cultures all over. During my stay ...

    Dave Martsolf - Dave Martsolf Dave Martsolf was born in 1949 in Kansas, moved to Western Pennsylvania in early childhood and at age 12 moved to New Hampshire where he resides today. MartsolfaEURtms father and grandfather were architects and his mother a professional photographer. Martsolf attended MIT and later UNH where he earned a degree in Fine Arts. His early work was influenced by the great masters and others such as the post-impressionists Miro, Matisse, Kandinsky, Klee, Picasso, and the surrealist Salvador Dali. Architectural instincts developed due to his close association with architecture in his youth. DaveaEURtms focus has been in visual arts his entire life. His style extends from realism to surrealistic to fantasy and abstraction. His work uses the mediums of oils, watercolors, inks and pencils, to the more technically-oriented media of computer-based art. Beginning in the late 80aEURtms Martsolf spent productive time with the tools of Bryce, Poser, KaiaEURtms Power Tools, and similar photo editing and photo manipulation products. He was creator, owner and artistic director of Damsel Software Group in the 1990aEUR2s as a producer and manufacturer of original content screen savers. Today, Dave has returned to handmade art. He continues ...

    Bob Dornberg - Art ELEMENTS include; relationships of objects, shapes, lines, spaces, colors, rhythm and balance. ELEMENTS are seen when observing any work. An artist should learn while observing, exploring and inventing. While subject matter is important, it should remain subservient to these ELEMENTS. MY WEBSITES:

    Ko Bhamra - The most beautiful part is that it invents itself. Simultaneoulsy, it re-invents us. The most intriguing part is that it is re-occuring: continuously becoming - therefore necessarily evolving and revealing. It is shameless because it reveals itself through us without permission, without the necessity of qualification and without the consent of choice. It is bold because it will simply arrive. Its existence is self-sustaining because its essence transcends us. It hungers only for our presence. When its passion beings to dance-we become its frenzy. When we dance in its frenzy we become its fantasy. When the energy becomes synergy-we transmit chaotic bursts. These bursts fuse into pulses that emanate and illuminate the impulses and intuitions that guide us. The visions are moments that actually exist. They transcend time so they are actual glimpses of a timelessness. When we free ourselves to submission we become one with creation. It is here that art and life merge and become one and the same moment. It is here that art will breathe with us and inform us of itself and ourselves. It's like magic. Art. Art is like magic. KKB 1999...

    Ko Bhamra - L. Kelen - I will be getting large files made of the art work I did while on some of the islands that suffered the Hurricanes. The originals will be available for sale believe it or not and there will be fine art prints available. Self-supporting bi-product of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and trial and error. Current activities lindakelen-artings.blogspot.com ...link found somewhere below. ...

    Michael Fornadley - All my life I have been drawing images out of my imagination, without preconceived themes or using any reference material. My work has been described as undefined narratives, relating to human relationships in the context of society. Compositions are filled with figurative gestures, without any attempt to develop a narrative thread, it drives the viewer to find a completed story, however, an unscripted conclusion is what they will find. TitleaEURtms to my tales are literary allusions - commentaries, occurring after the paintings are finished and the storyline, to which the title refers is not a factor in the paintings evolution. I describe my style as illustrative with intellect, sometimes showing opposites through thought and emotion. I try to balance both. I have always enjoyed the Expressionists Movements in art and my work reflects this. My painting technique is traditional. The mediums I use are oils, egg tempera on wood and wood cuts. Distinctive to my paintings are figures running, persons gesturing, eccentric objects, mysterious boxes, and usually one person in the background watching impassively. I lead the eye through a theatrical space walls and stages. Moving the viewer, with head movement, to pointed fingers, to a figure by a peculiar...

    Stefan Fiedorowicz - The language of lyrical abstraction interpreted... by Michael Bouger 2008 Stefan Fiedorowicz, a Canadian now residing in Vienna Austria has amassed a most impressive resume with shows spreading out from Canada, United States and Europe. Fiedorowiczs work has often been compared to the great modernists of the past following the notable style of lyrical abstraction, a term meaning an opening to personal expression. While perhaps a compliment, this also seems a disservice to his striking talent. The emotion in my work comes from somewhere deep down, and can speak to the inner part of each person... My work is intuitive colour is the language that I use to express an emotion. It is the interaction of colour that interests me. Fiedorowicz possesses something more than a painter following in the footsteps of others before. There is a supreme depth to his work that captures a newer sense of Modernism, something that is sadly missing from the current art scene. His shapes and lines infuse his paintings with a richly exotic symbolism of style. There is purpose and psychology to his work, conveying a sense of confidence from a broad spectrum of experience. Fiedorowiczs distinction as a modern painter is in ...

    Pol Ledent - I am a self-taught artist. I was born in Belgium o, 23rd October 1952. I started painting in 1995 . I took some drawing lessons in the art academy in Dinant. I try to paint the landscapes of the countryside where I am living : the southern part of Belgium. Firts I took part in many collective exhibitions . Than, I had personal exhibitions in Rochehaut (Galerie La Potele), in Dinant (Galerie L'impression), in Paris (Rive Gauche Galerie Artimus) in Brussels (Galerie G-Loft).In 2004, I had three exhibitions, again In Rochehaut, galerie La Potele in May. Then, in September Exhibition Libr'art in Libramont. In November, Galerie Impression in Dinant. What people like most in my paintings are the colours. My art doesn't speak to the intellect but to the soul and to the feelings. Talink the risk to seem old fashioned , I would say it is rather romantic. I wish you much pleasure looking at my paintings. Pol Ledent ...
