Paintings with a flare of Electronic Art

It’s starting to be difficult to describe the art and things that are running through my head right now.. therefore I have started painting and rendering pictures to describe my experience in life. Just snippets and snapshots of ideas and things I see and have come to terms with and have resolved. Animethon is coming up and I’ll be selling my deceased brother’s work and maybe some of mine also. I’ll be selling them with my cousin Cin who came to me willing to help.

Below are four additional photo touched images of my art that is infused with textures and colors of my current works to produce these mini collages. Hopefully I can make more prints in the future. As for now please enjoy the below produced favorite collage portraits.

I’m trying to display as much stuff as I can but because there’s a disclosure for the work I’m doing I cannot display all the things I’m doing with my Karate Class and Print Shop job. I’m just hopping about from creative mind set to my practical catered renderings advertising for local companies mind. Things are going well. I hope the art inspires you today. Thank you.

My gate is always open. A link to my secret prayers page.

Above is just a fun exploration of 3 dimensional space to keep my mind sharp.

So here’s the story short. I got ill from a psychosis and suffered severely from delusions for a awhile and thus got hospitalized. As soon as I got discharged and got better my brother passed away due to depression.. and more to the story but I’m hushed to keep it low key.

On a lighter note.. we distributed some of his prized belongings. His guitar and PS4 were first to go. I got his cintiq tablet hd 22, some clothes and his lonely room and possessions became mine. I doodled a little today on his monstrous cintiq tablet and decided to honor my brother’s favored Japanese art style Anime and drew some fun characters.

Below are some comic ideas I had in mind that I would like to explore in the future possibly. Alphonse the first, Omegan the end, Ethos the Crosswey, Amberguity of ambiguous virtue.

More to come in the future hopefully.

*edit: added 8 more characters. The Synthesis Core Equator, Terra the Amazon Earth Guardian, Abundance of Heaven’s Grace, Obsidian the Grand Teacher, Lost Worlds the Grand Archivist, The Epiphany Prelude and Spatial Planar Protruding Binary.

Intuitive and Analytical Brain. Seven Best Habits for Effective Art Practice.

The Left and Right Hemisphere’s of the brain working together for a resulting iterative moderate solution. Here are some golden rules for studies based on artistic right and analytical math based left.

(The diagram below is facing you and is the reason why it looks backwards.)

ScreenHunter_1570 Apr. 15 21.09

There are two basic sides and approaches to doing good art. The logical Analytical left side of the brain’s way.. and the creative intuitive right side of the brain’s way.

It seems that the two fields influence and behave completely different from one another.

logical rational
analytical left

creative imaginative
intuitive right

Which brings us to an understanding of art to a different level called Iterative drawing.

Iterative drawing relies on perspective, practice and mainly this new thing called mileage.

iterative drawing is based on
mileage and moderation.

(draw multiple versions of the one drawing for effective learning).

There are also components to drawing and painting.

Drawing tends to rely mostly on proportion placement. Form and construction. Perspective and anatomy.

The components to painting rely mostly on;
value, color, temperature and texture.

7 habits of highly effective artists. The seven practices for effective learning artists are as listed;

  1. Do daily work; set a scheduled meeting with yourself.
  2. Work towards perfection by volume.
  3. Great artists steal, take what you love and use it.
  4. Conscious learning; focus on relative things and awareness.
  5. Rest 6 weeks for fresh eyes.
  6. Feedback; everything sucks at the start.
  7. Create what you love.

 

RIP April 10 2017; A Message to A Distanced Brother I Still Forgive

memorial cardtruest2FINAL

High expectations, low resolve.

I know I’ve been hard on him all my life and sometimes it was hard to set aside our differences, majority of the time. I believe throughout his life he’s had this conflict of expecting a lot but never settling for less than what he wanted to see happen. His resolve to settle was always less than what he expected to see in life. He was use to being hand fed by a silver spoon, living off the silver lining of life and when things got tough because the stars didn’t align for him he gave up.

We grew up pretty poor growing up and he was a favored child all the years I knew him. I’ll continue to roast him in his passing because that opportunity to do so has passed. He was my young kid brother and he had so much more coming to him. There’s so much frustration and misunderstanding of who we were and what we were in life to each other.

I dreamed he visit once just recently. I was resuscitating him in the dream, and he came to life again. He kissed my forehead and said “Stupid”. A very normal answer based on profound knowledge of who he was. I was tearing up, I wanted to say so much but all I could think of was how selfish he was.. how much of an idiot he was to leave us the way he did. How hard it was for my parents to let him go – no parent should bury their kid.

I always saw him in a heroic light, I sometimes referenced him to the redeemed exiled king of “Lord of The Rings” King Aragorn. I had bought him a Aragorn replica sword for his room in 2010 (?) with all the money I had made working banquets for The Shaw Conference Center.  He in exchange never bought anyone anything in the family for the years I knew him. I know it was hard to pull out the money for special occasions to buy something for someone no matter how cheap or stupid the idea was.  I would have liked anything he would have pulled out just to say I got something from him.

He was solitary, spoke little unless it was about business or monetary gain, judgmental and most of all closed off his life to people in his family. I wrote a poem as a memorandum to our loss. It was the best I could do, I hope it would reach him where ever he was. I couldn’t understand who he was in the end and what drove him to be who he was at the end of all this. He was an enigma to me even in the end. He was just my kid brother in the end no matter how he treated us and behaved I didn’t care. I just lost a chance and opportunity to redeem my kid brother.. The glimmer of hope that we would resolve the friction and conflict between us as kids in the end.

I hate how he was so calm and collected talking about what he was about to do before he passed away. He was so smug, he really needed that smack on the head. To wake up and realize that it was his life he was talking about and it effected everyone around him also. Everyone who knew him and worried for him would be effected. But even after all that, never visiting me at the hospital while i was there – I guess he was just going through too much stuff and struggling with his own life to reach out to me.

Even after all that, I forgive him. I just hope he gets everything coming to him. Our frustrations, anger and especially our love. I hope that guy finds peace. I wish him well.

NN.

Art Gallery Submission

I’ve finally got around to organize and show the best of my work while at Anderson Hospital. The 6 months, I must say was – a miracle – and I pulled through with flying colors. I am hoping to catalog and archive these paintings on this post. I am planning to adjust the paintings into printable format for those who are interested in getting just a copy. As for the originals, I am unsure how to price them just yet. I will probably sell them at the farmers market for a couple of weeks (hope to see some interest at my little tent), and most likely auction at some point. I took out two wall paintings I didn’t feel met whatever standard I thought it needed to be.. and most likely because it was a duplicate paint job of lesser quality.

So with all good things there is a story that is told.

The first three was a symbolic reference to “alpha, omega, crossway, salvage and ambiguity” the ground colors that made this all possible.

It was just an idea. The idea of the bridge from the Heavens coming down to Earth is now the focus.

These components combined creates a bridge to the Sunset Cave where a Fallen Star from heaven has landed. This is where The Tree of Imagination is now planted. The Nose of the Cosmos knows of specific things which eventually leads it in to become The Weeping Tree in the end.

This is where the Dark blossom and Space Rose come in to shine – because in the magnitude of darkness something must exist.

In the sea of strange nature comes stranger animals – the Space Whale of all creatures splash in spirit through the sea of stars. The skies filled with already great wonders The Celestial Trees came to soak in the magnificent energy and experience. In the imagination of the Heavens, they create the Space Bouquet in the name of love – and not just any love.. selfless unconditional timeless love.

Another bridge; the stairway is to be made instead of heaven to earth – this one to be made earth to heaven. The star that falls here is the Earth Bound Star. Earth touched Trees and mountains and Earth touched Aurora Borealis come into the picture.

Out sprouts the Tree of Life and Knowledge reaching left and right, instantaneous as if grown over night. This tree overlooks The Earth and The Heavens and all things good within it. It oversees and introduces pious resolve and virtue of human kindness. This integration of Heaven and Earth present us with the Celestial Bouquet of Earth.

With this strange gesture of exchange and to co-exist as a sign of mutual agreement to cooperate under the law of symbiosis – comes the signal of the Blossomed Space Rose. Where the egg of infinity now lay. We have concocted the Phoenix Peacocks it seems.

The Phoenix Peacocks establish it’s hierarchy with The Dragon, and The Gryphon, quickly. The Tiger, The Wolf and The Black Lion soon follow. And finally an oddly organized team rises through The Buck, The Serpent and The Great Squirrel.

The Animal Totems have come to play but as guardian spirits. By the Equinox of Seasons the trees have a choir in which the twin dual spirits of the great Masculine and Feminine duality playfully flow. The Human Spirits through music of song and manifestation of butterflies ring for all to hear.

The Tree of life bursts in a blaze of burning but growing flames of leaves and roots. The Sunset Tree signals that all is ready and well. The Golden Eagle makes way to it’s new home on sanctified foundations it will grow.

The grass cut like Golf Greens, it appears like there is an oasis at every turn. The Perspective is good at every angle. The Polar Bear Guardian stands vigilant but at rest. Blissfully at peace. The Green Dragon reveals it’s true self to the audience.


Thank you for visiting! Maybe I can help you find your favorite part of this post.. prints are available soon, please be patient while I get everything organized. If you want an original canvas picture please message me,

Past Two Weeks Worth of Space Paintings

Theme: Aurora Borealis, Space and Surreal Stellar Objects.

I’ve been doing some painting for the last 3 weeks and have created 21 total paintings. Some paintings are mural paintings on the wall. I was asked to paint the stairwell of the Anderson Hospital but some are painted on (16″ x 20″) on canvases. I would like to share some of the work I have done in the past 3 weeks. Here you go, for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.

Some details worth mentioning are:

-The “Tree Of Life” is bigger than the door that actually sits to the right of it.

-Wall painting’s on wall tends to smudge so the quality is not as good as it would be on Canvas.

-Some pictures are duplicates because some picture’s translation from canvas to wall was difficult or not so good.

-Materials used were expensive – around $150 or more for brushes, canvases and paints.

Happy Journey!

Nam,

We Are a Product of Our Work

intheend

  1. We are a product of our work.

You are what you make of life. In the end it’s what you’ve done, the kindness you’ve spread and the hearts you touched that makes logical sense in life – but most importantly, who you become is immediately significant. Life is about the people you meet, yes this is true, but you are the product of all these interactions that make you grow, being a result and product of all things that have come. All things that influenced you as you figured out and sorted problems after problems to become solutions. Turning dirt, molding it to become gold in your eyes. Making something from nothing. Doing something surprisingly great and beautiful despite all odds and what tools and things you have to work with. This is the philosophy of the lotus being born in a barren dirty place as the swamp and blooming into a beautiful flower out of no where.

All the things we have done, all the work we put in, all the people we interacted with to get where we are today. This is what we have taken for granted. People don’t see the impact of their actions and kindness but as we grow more mature and thoughtful this results in development refining of character. We become more respectful and polite in order to resolve common conflicts that could be dealt with easily with simple decency. If we remember our goals and keep our personal plans for ourselves focused at heart and strive for these resulting projects consistently persevering, we will surely get where we want to go in life and collect all the rewards that we sowed in the end. Keeping in mind that we can’t please everyone but we should still aim to be selfless and generously giving. Not everyone has the human interest in mind.

Despite the fact that not everyone has good intentions, we can only help the few that care and spread acts of kindness and behaviors. Focusing on the here and now, we prioritized our love ones and make preferences to enjoy and allow the joy in our life to flourish. Allowing our love and happiness and our justice and peace to prosper. We have worked our method and analyzed our directions and conflicts and this is what we found in the end. In chronological order these are the conflicts but also profound virtuous solutions I have come to conclude..

 

My Journey’s Stellar Pin-Pointed Gems:
