Nicky Lin, California Member Since February 2007 Artist Statement Due to a Hard Drive crash I've lost all my digital files. What you see here is all there is. Boohoo! Now that I've started creating new stuff, I have to decide what to get rid of FOREVER! Any thoughts as to what I should keep for sure?
And for those of you new to this Gallery, a little about me: Once I found Painter I became hooked on digital art. Before that I was struggling with Photoshop and a mouse. A Wacom tablet and Painter are now my best friends!
I like the feel of the watercolor, which I use in a most untraditional way, backwards. It's the same when I use actual paint. I paint as if it were oil, or acrylics, dark to light.
The city inspires me, and the female form inspires me. These are the things I paint most, and the things that occupy my creative mind most of the time. I also love Photography, but alas I'm not that good at it.
As a child my mom took me on a lot of road trips through California, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. There was a lot of nothing to see, but being a child of divorce, this time with my mom gave me a sense of hope and peacefulness. So when I see abandoned places those are the feelings they invoke. Next to my girls and the city at night, those lonely places are another of my favorite subjects.
