As I was growing up I always looked to the night sky with fascination; the beauty of the stars and moon were an inpsiration to my young mind. This passion grew in leaps and bounds when I found the genre of science fiction books. I have read thousands of novels from all the greats gobbling each new find up like it was candy for my imagination.
Then on April 24, 1990 when the Hubble telescope started transmitting actual images of our universe my mind exploded. Those images helped shape my imagination even further.
Now as I learn new techniques in painting I have found another way to allow my imagination to escape the bounds of this planet and and to create the universe in my minds eye.
"Galaxy" which is a 12" X 12" Triptich (3 panel) painting in acrylics was a passion project in washes and layering.
FESTIVAL OF TREES for CPAN
Last weekend was the Festival of Trees gala to raise money for our local CPAN.
Trish and I both donated some of our art to this worthy cause.
Although I dread the coming of autumn (only becasue winter is right on it's heels), I do love the explosion of colours. It is an inspiring time with the leaves changing and the delightful mixture of colours.
In the coming weeks I will be doing some autumn inspired paintings. Here is a taste of what will be coming.
If you are looking for something to spruce up your walls for the season all of my paintings are for sale and have been continued to the sides so there is no need for expensive framing - they are ready to hang.
If you are interested send me an email or LIKE me on facebook at Steve Malcolm's Studio and we can work together to create something special for you. And if my work is not your cup of tea, my wonderful talented wife also paints.
