Floral Pathways — The Long Road to Discovering Their Mysteries.
Flowers are one of God’s most beautiful inventions. He knows what beauty is. I am enjoying every minute of the little discoveries that can be found with paint while learning to see the flower in a new way. I have embraced this journey to explore the color, shape and movement of the flower. Also I am working at learning to see the subtle changes of warm and cool, harmony, edges and variety of shape while keeping my brushwork loose. I use my own recipe to make what I call “the sauce”. The sauce keeps the initial block-in looking very transparent. I finish with plenty of impasto, while keeping some of the initial transparency. It has turned out to be a never ending discovery process that is so interesting to me, that I cannot wait to finish one and move on to the next.—Randy Blasquez

INTRODUCING JOE ADAM'S DOG PORTRAITURE: Call Gallerie Amsterdam and commission a portrait of your dog.

Inspired by amazing dogs, their stories and their "people" Joe Adams creates beautiful dog portraits. "To see each animal's emotion come to life at the end of a pencil or brush and then be privilaged to enjoy the owner's initial reaction is amazing! One of the greatest benefits of doing these portraits is when the dog owner and artist collaborate in raising awareness and funding for dog rescue groups." Real Dog Art Supports Animal Rescue Fund Raising Projects. In Oregon, Joe works with the community based dog rescue effort: Pixie Project of Portland. Funds are raised by donating 20% or more of the auction price of each artwork.
