    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…

    How I Never Run Out of Ideas

    Another great quote from Pablo Picasso, “Inspiration exists but it has to find you working.” It seems like I never run out of ideas because; I’m always inspired by something. I have many blog posts about what inspires me! As I said in my blog post, My Artist Style, my mind never goes to sleep. Inspiration and ideas are all around us, all you have to do is look! In most cases, I will get an idea when I’m not thinking about it. I am always looking for inspiration though. These are just a few places where I find inspiration…… Where my ideas start…… Catchy songs Popular media Catchphrases from…

    Music Inspired Art Prints

    You know those moments where a catchy beat or your favorite song gets stuck in your head…..those moments might make me sound weird. As you guessed it the music I like is random too. It usually goes from old school 70’s Pop like Tom Petty, to Classic Rock such as Bon Jovi, to 90’s grunge like Shinedown & Papa Roach to some….even through in a few throwback pop songs…. Those catchy songs might just be my next source of inspiration Blackbird – The Beatles Wildflower – Tom Petty Bon Jovi Diamond Eyes – Shinedown Rescue Me – Thirty Seconds to Mars I am Human – Escape the Fate Warrior by:…

    Rude Humor

    If you have ever seen a episode of Roseanne, then you will know that “rude humor” and inside jokes are her thing. You will also have a stomach ache from laughing at her jokes. The original ten seasons started in 1988 and ended in 1997. During the very last episode of the original sires, Dan had suffered a heart attack and died. Years later in 2018 it was renewed for a eleventh season. In the first moments of the reboot, Roseanne wakes up and says “I Thought You Were Dead”. Roseanne learns she was dreaming and let the new memories of the Conner family begin. This moment was funny because…

I created my own cassette tape and used…

    Blackbird Art

    This series started with the fact that both my dad and I share a love for older music. I have heard almost every Beatles song on the radio station that he listens to except for one. Blackbird. One day, I asked him if he has ever heard the song on the radio, no he said. He was curious how I was familiar with the song. He told me it was one of their less popular songs. It all started with a book that I was reading. The book was called Sometimes Never by Cheryl McIntyre. The main charterer of the book, Hope loves the song because of her mom. I…
