Richard Lovesey

 My interest in art began when I decided to capture Lincolnshire's rich aviation heritage in a series of graphite aircraft drawings. Having never drawn seriously before, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I possessed  a talent for it. This, coupled with positive encouragement from family and friends, inspired me to utilise my ability to provide people with a unique product at an affordable price.

 During 1999, I progressed away from graphite and began to experiment with colour, and have never looked back. With no formal training in art or drawing, I have mastered my own unique approach and technique through practical experience, using only the finest quality materials from Derwent, Faber-Castell and Caran d' Ache.

I work from home, in the historic market town of Louth, which sits in the heart of Lincolnshire's rich rural landscape at the foot of the rolling hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds. This area is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty and I find it a very inspiring place from which to work.

 The majority of my commissioned work takes the form of portraits. Children and pets are by far themost popular requests, although I like the opportunity to consider almost anysubject. I work solely from photographs because this approach allows me to take the necessary time over a picture, ensuring that I can achieve the best results.

Passing Friends by Gordon Miller

"Passing Friends"
Original oil 22" x 28" by Gordon Miller © 1987

The coastal Indians of British Columbia and Alaska were a maritime people who travelled, hunted and fished on the sea. The Natives retained a memory of a mythological time before all creatures became distinct and separate, where men and animals were kindred spirits. This kinship with the natural world was kept alive through art and ritual
, and common ancestry was proclaimed with family crests.

Killer Whales -- Orcinus orca -- were another resident of the coast who travelled and hunted together in social units. Long misunderstood and feared by humans, these animals have been found to be highly social, intelligent and even gentle creatures in captivity.

encounters with Killer Whales
must have been common. They frequented all of the same waters and harvested the same resources.

Pictured is a
Northern-style Haida travelling canoe
painted with a Killer Whale crest of Kwakwaka'wakw design.

Artist Statement:Featured Artist: Bob Kim

Featured Artist: Bob Kim

Bob Kim captures the essence of everpresent natural beauty and our primordial connection to it. He creates images that transcend the limits of camera and film, a vision of nature’s panoramic grandeur, timeless and unspoiled. His artistry is a unique combination of the camera’s eye and the mind’s envision. It is his original method of mixing classic painting techniques and traditional fine art photography and latest digital tools that gives physical presence as well as emotionally dramatic lighting, greater range of color fidelity and extraordinary details.

Bob Kim was born in Seoul, Korea in 1961, and moved to the United States with his family in 1975. He studied fine arts and photography at the Maryland Institute of College of Art in Maryland, graduating with a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts in 1983.

of over two
hundred photographs, edited
down to thirty images taken in
a two-week
period from five different
viewpoints of the park. It
took him over a month
to create the final composite
image, a result of extensive
color correction,
dodging, burning, and masking.

1.)That I am even doing this, as I chew on my lower lip? hehehe

2.)  I am crazy about starting some networking Blogs  to let people know where I am , or where I have been, if they are looking for me;) Now that is weird! LOL

3.)   Talking to myself, as I am trying to edit Journals here in AOL and find this error thingy pops up to stop my every move and I have to go to FireFox to Edit from there! Reminds me of this

4.)  I always shoot fuzzy pictures, which drives one of my Pro Photographer special friends crazy! I blamed it on the cheap camera:) (But now Greg gives lessons!:)

5.)  It is not uncommon to find me playing a Movie CD as I am on the computer doing this and so just listen, as to a Radio, like now watching - listening to my sons new copy of KiKi's Delivery Service:). An old friend introduced him to this lovely style of Japanese Art in films, which he would love to do himself ,but ended up giving me his computer drawing board to use with Gimp!

6.)  I don't do well in large crowds...toooooooo Greg! But showing my art in the past I was among crowds of people doing demos, shy as anything!!!!! But great one on one, I think? Or here safely at my computer, just doing info:).

And there you have it...6 weird things about me.

Guess I have to tag six others for this. Hummmmmmmmmm Now that is hard... Greg do you want to do this again ? ;) Just kidding!
