Artist Timeline

SoulOfTheBrush-eCardI think visual timeline’s are important especially for fine artists. I would like to see more of them on the web. Mine has just been updated. (!) It highlights the evolution of my work from calligraphy to “no-mind” gestural painting to modern sculpture. Here’s the link, easy peasy:  http://heimart.com/artist_timeline.html  – enjoy!


Miniature paintings

Little paintings are a part of my featured work during the studio open house – 1st weekend in December. It’s a totally different kind of creative space to work small vs large scale. Miniature work doesn’t happen if my creativity is demanding mops of Sumi ink and 15ft linen panels.

Cuban Tree Frog Zen like brush

While cleaning brushes I noticed a dark spot inside the separated fibers of a brush hanging at eye level. As soon as I figured out what it was…I said…hi!

My work/live space is in an area that animals and critters come and go. One day I’ll dig out a photo of the Rhode Island Red hen with club foot that showed up for awhile and then she brought friends…duck, couple more hens, rooster and a cat. Sometimes my pure happy mojo shows up in unexpected places with unexpected characters.
