iPainting: A Tree By The Waters

Psalms 1:3
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

We love this verse, and hope that you love the iPainting named after it, “A Tree By The Waters”.

iPainting: Mountains In The Ross Style

I grew up watching Bob Ross with my Grandmother, Virginia Hill. We both enjoyed his amazing and unique style of art. Our newest iPainting is in honor of him. We hope you enjoy “Mountains In The Ross Style”.

iPainting: The Sahara Lions Series

I love technology.  When used productively, it offers all kinds of options.  People criticize filters on photographs, but artists have used various “filters” for years. Van Gough painted two versions of his famous haystacks.

Long before Warhol, and his variation soup cans, Gilbert Stuart painted 130 variations of his portrait of Washington. By the way, he never finished the first one.  It was called The Athenaeum, he used it as a template. You’ve seen it though, it’s the picture of President Washington on the one dollar bill.

In keeping with that, I painted a simple picture of a Sahara Lion using a different digital tool than my iPad mini.  As odd as it may sound, the original was painted using Microsoft Paint.  After that, I applied some filters in PowerPoint to it.  The variations themselves make for an interesting series we call, “The Sahara Lions”.

iPainting: Wall Art

I was in a showroom the other day, and I saw all kinds of artwork with an abstract look to it.  They were big elaborate pieces in a style that I’ve never been a huge fan of. Still, it was a challenge to see if I could paint something like it myself.  Here are the interior design pieces “Staying The Course”, “Mammoth”, and “Man Of Steel”.  Please let us know what you think of our art experiment @ pruittwrites@gmail.com, with the subject “Wall Art”.
