So this wonderful site turns 14 today. Holy Moses!  I can't believe this site is 14 years old and I've been a part of it as a member for 11 years. Anyway, I'll keep this short as I'm not much of a writer so here's my story on DA in a nut shell.

I've been coming to this site since 2002, drawm to it (Ha HA, no pun intended) by the large Wallpaper gallery and I was really into desktop wallpapers at the time. I found that the more I looked throughout the wallpaper gallery, the more I got inspired and decided to create my own wallpapers and share it with the community. I joined up with DA in June of 2003. Being the introverted artist that I am, I was nervous at first but found a small group of artist's, with a few stand out internet artist friends,  that I still talk with and get inspired by; I'm looking at you gregoriousone and Senecal, among others.

It's funny to look back and my gallery and see the Time line of DA and bask in the flood of memories from the meteoric rise of deviantArt which brought about the Bandwidth Crisis, the drama around Jark, the artist friends the came and went, with a llama or two here and there. I've seen my art work mature along the way too, helped in part by the wonderful, talented, and amazing artists that I've found here and gotten to know and be inspired by.

Happy Birthday, dA!

Mystic Blue
5″x7″
Mixed Media on Clayboard
(Oil, Acrylic, and Gold leaf)

This was interesting to work on. It was reclaimed clay board of an ancient painting that I did. The only thing that kept from the original was the gold leaf in the top portion and a bit of green that is buried amongst some red and orange in the bottom portion.

Mixed Media on Canvas
(Oil, Acrylic, Copper leaf, cardboard)

Really liking playing with these colors. I think I’m going to be revisiting copper leaf again, but not sure when or how. I need to think about it so more and see where inspiration hits.

Three Pence
7″ x 7″
Mixed Media on Oil Paper
(Oil, Acrylic, Modeling Paste, Cardboard)

This was an interesting piece. It started as a sketch for a slightly larger painting and a bit of an experiment with Oil Paper. In the end I decided to keep this as its own piece rather than a sketch and make a semi-series out the colors and textures.

Mixed Media on Clayboard
(Oil, Gold Leaf)

I’ve had this Clayboard sitting around for ages not sure what to paint on it. It was stained with Alizarin Crimson and the textures that I got from the clay board was just too fun to paint over and so it sat until I got inspired to paint on it.

24” x 18”
Mixed Media on Board
(Gold leaf, Acrylic, Oil, and Paper)

Another reclaimed canvas. I had a bunch of gold leaf sitting around collecting dust from some collage work years ago and I decided to got to town and use them. This piece came together with much gold leaf for the background as well as different gold paints I had lying around that wanted to be used. I got some nifty colors and textures with this piece. Lots of fun to explore gold leaf.
