The Way of the Artist
“A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing.” -William Dobell
The art herein is our combined work. As artists, we endeavor to conduct every aspect of our lives as though each action were a stroke in a great work of art; something which will contribute to the benefit of our selves and to all that surround(s) us.
Viewing in this light even the most minute of efforts, and performing every action with an understanding of its place in the balance of things; by channeling the beauty of art into each step so that it fashions words and contours thought; in that moment where one must put pen to paper or paint to the canvas, the essence of art can then only but flow, fueled by all aspects of your reality.
Being human, we may sometimes stumble in this, but it is through dedication to this Way that artists truly understand themselves and connect with those around them. This is the difference between one who performs and one who is.
Certainly, our most beautiful and magnificent creation is, and will perpetually be, our wonderful daughter, Shaitana, who already shows a great fondess for the world of art, and who will sometimes be featured here as well.
We have separated our artwork into folders representing drawings/paintings, modelling, personal photography, and literature. We are in the process of building our portfolios, so it will be some time before our galleries are filled, though we will not let too much pass between postings. We hope that you will enjoy the process along with us, and be sure to check back for upcoming additions!
