So i decided to tell you more about myself and couldn't find the edit tag.

I'm a emotive / surreal artist.

I am still learning and honestly im not very good at it. I know where i want to be with my art and the level i want to attain and currently im not quite there. I was offered a 25k scholorship to midwestern state university to be a fine art major and i turned it down for computer science major instead here in delaware. I just don't see myself being capable of competing in the fine art world.

I have pieces hanging on walls, i even had pieces traveling texas visiting highschools. I have had pieces hang in a local non profit gallery. I have had some success and i am currently working on my first comission. So i have also sold!!!! Pretty stoked.

anyway here is some of my older works. I wil be show casing my WIP's and everything on the forum from here on out!










My drawings usually have some sort of symbolism or meaning. I also like things to be abstract at times. If you want me to tell you what my drawings mean to me im more then happy to share

Wow! I really enjoyed these. I have no idea what they mean at all so I'd would enjoy reading about that if you have time. This is top notch work and I'm very glad to have you as part of our community.

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

I'll describe these drawings here first then.

The first drawing is labele fear. It is a hand reaching out grabbing a broken necklace and puling back another han from opening a door and its supposed to resemble agoraphobia.

the 2nd drawing is known as crushed. Its my inner mind after a rejection. The flower resembles romance as you can see its all but withered down to one petal. While the 2 hands resemble the action of rejection. The color blue was picked to help create the mood better.

The 3rd drawing: its just a life drawing of a dock nothing special.

4th drawing: This is my favorite piece i have ever done it is known as belittle'd. Its a portly man sitting on a swing in its peek motion going backwards looking down on a sand city he sculpted by himself. THe interesting things to state is when looking at the sand city the point of view is aways birds eye. This is supposed to represent a grandiose value. Like your really really really important or the city is just really really remarkable. The man sitting on the swing is supposed to be humbled by the enviroment around him. Well lets say hes belittle'd

Welcome to our little corner of the world!

While I am not a fan of the style, I certainly see that you have a lot of talent!

And that is the most important point to art, enjoying what you are doing.

If you ain't having fun, you're doing it wrong!

These are so thought provoking and very well done. Welcome to our little art community.

I'm Terry and I do oil paintings. Only been working on paintings 2 years in May, but I enjoy it immensely .

Patrick I'm with tattoos like u are with art. I only have a few, but all of my tattoos have meaning, and any future ones will be the same. As for my art...I just like to draw stuff. Lol

You are crazy talented, and I hope u go far. I love that your pieces have meaning, and you have sold a commission. Congratulations
