Delmas Shiflett, Plant City, Florida Member Since May 2010 Artist Statement I am over 66 years old and I consider that being mature, and have been drawing and painting since I was 8 years old. I do both original art on paper and canvas along with digital art. I am now doing a civil war project with a retro art style of the 60's and 70's. I will be doing digital and canvas for this project. I just finished up the war project from WW1 to the present Afghanistan conflict. I have also did a great deal of photo work during my life and have now just decided to work on digital sculptures with ZBrush and should have some amazing results.
I am currently working on a children’s book (writing and illustrating) ; hope to have it published in the next few years. I try to be active at my age as much as possible and hope to do as much as I can.
As I have lived art, one can see how nothing in time really changes only gets better in that I can review art from the masters and review art today contains the basics.
After the basics then one can see the expansion of imagination. Finally one can also, see the use of technology which makes a great impression during this time that we live in on the art that is created.
