    Ocean Sunset Digitally

    I used to watch Bob Ross back when my family only had the few local channels. I decided I would try to recreate one of his paintings digitally… It’s a lot harder thank it looks. He makes painting look so easy….. I chose the painting Ocean Sunset (Episode 10, Season 10) Here is my version. I used the program Krita on my Microsoft Surface… I didn’t have the same brushes and I couldn’t blend the colors like Bob Ross but it came out good. Would you like to see this in my Print on Demand shops? Let me know! Thank you for reading – Abby (purelifephotoss)

    Georgia O’Keeffe Inspired Art

    I was first shown this painting in second grade. Georgia O’Keeffe painted Deer Skull with Pedernal in 1936 with oil paints. She painted this scene many times and said this before her death. “It’s my private mountain. It belongs to me. God told me if I painted it enough, I could have it” Later on when I re discovered my love for art I used the same elements of this painting in a new way. I took this black and white photo in 2018 at a local zoo. I did this boho style digital artwork in 2018 as well. Thank you for reading -Abby (purelifephotoss)

    Art inspired by GMW/BMW

    Another work inspired by a Disney show.   Riley Matthews learns that she got the best parts of both her parents, Cory and Topenga.   After, telling her best friend Maya a story of the other bay window. The next scene is from Boy Meets World when Riley sees her mother isn’t perfect. Here is that scene.   After seeing this, and learning that her parents aren’t perfect she repeats her mother’s words. “I don’t think I’m weird. I think I’m unique.”   I think this scene is one of my favorites. Riley learns that everyone is unique.   Kind of like my brand name. Purelifephotoss. It has two s’s…

    Tips for Finding the Right Mindset for Creating Art?

    Being an artist takes a certain mindset to be able to create art. 1. You are an artist!: I knew I wanted to be an artist but it wasn’t until a few years ago when I first called myself an artist. Believe in your art. If you don’t take yourself and your artwork seriously, no one will! 2. Have confidence in your work: have confidence in your work! Your art is great and it represents you. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. I once had former teachers tell me that doing art through photoshop and creating it digitally isn’t enough. Though I was told that years ago, it stayed with…

    Dandilions and Crows/ Wheatfeild of Crows

    During my art history class I was introduced to the painting Wheatfield of Crows by Vincent Van Gogh. Wheatfield of Crows was painted in 1980 with oil paints. This painting was believed to be his last painting before he committed suicide. “They are endless wheatfields under a cloudy sky, and I have not hesitated to attempt to express sadness and the deepest loneliness” – Vincent Van Gogh This painting inspired this work I call “Dandelions and Crows”. I started with this picture I took of dandelions in the spring. I took a happier more modern take. And of course chose photography as a media rather than oil paint. I used…
