Description Beauty. What is it ? It comes in many forms,from the freakish to the sublime.In all its ways nothing more then the perception of the person viewing it.To some she is beautiful to others a horror show.What is she to you ?
Silas Black, Manassa,Colorado Member Since June 2013 Artist Statement Growing up in a small town in Michigan I did not have much in the form of entertainment.My family did not have much money which was the case with most the families around us.I spent my time in nature enjoying the beauty of it all and letting my mind wander.I would sit for hours under the trees in the woods all alone and just draw.Mostly it was cartoons and fantasy and some abstract.I had learned about the wonderful world of fantasy from playing dungeons and dragons with friends and this carried into my art.At about 15 I started to take an interest in artists like Michael Whelan,Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell just to name a few.When I was in my 20's I sold 2 or 3 drawings and started to realize that people had an interest in my work.Then life took a turn and my children were born and I no longer had the time I needed to put my ideas onto paper.Now at 42 the children are grown up and my passion for creating has taken a new form as digital art allowing me to create things at a whole new level.I hope that you enjoy my creations as much as I do and that they carry on long after I am gone.
Creating art to me is an amazing process.The ability to take an idea and put it on paper to show the world and hopefully bring some enjoyment into someones life.Giving a peek into my mind to the world.I learned this from the enjoyment I found growing up looking at art from artists all around the world.All I want in life is to share my art and hopefully inspire someone else to do the same.People come and go from this world but the art and music and the dance carry on. Improving all our lives and reminding us that no matter how bad it gets there is always beauty in the world.Sharing what makes you happy no matter how small makes the biggest difference in peoples lives and helps them along the path of life.I was inspired as a child by all these things and hope that I may do the same in kind for someone else.So enjoy and pass along all the beauty and creativity you have inside and shine a light into the world for those who need it to follow.
