Gudmundsen's depictions of people and landscapes may seem steeped in nostalgia, but actually symbolically reflect the artist's own life: one in which he strives to live simply and tries to make time for the important moments. Often using his own children and relatives as models in his paintings, Trent encourages and then captures authentic moments of quiet conversation or contemplation; people learning and teaching, talking and interacting, or simply enjoying a moment in thought in that fleeting time between work and play.

- I was born in south of Sweden, living in Gothenburg since many years back. I have been working full time as a watercolor artist since 2007.

I try to find the tension and harmony between colors and shapes, and light and darkness, where the water and pigments together create new forms.

Jose Royo, is a modern master artist of impressionist painting. The sweeping brush strokes, bold swaths of color, and heavy impasto capture the eye and draws one inward until that final absolute moment of awareness that one is actually there in the scene feeling the light and heat of the sun, the salt and sea spray, and hearing the crashing surf. Royo conveys not merely image, but mood and atmosphere as well. This is rare in today's art world, hence the connoisseur is compelled to compare with the old masters. Thus, the appeal of Royo's work for today's collector becomes obvious. With pride we offer the art work of today's Spanish master painter, Royo, to the art connoisseurs of the world.

An avid hiker, fly fisherman, and gardener Andre believes that even the most simple of subjects can be elevated, taking on a meaning greater than their initial appearance.

La corrispondenza tra Vincent van Gogh [1853-1890] ed il fratello minore, il mercante d'arte Theo van Gogh, rappresenta il testamento del pensiero di Van Gogh verso la vita, l'arte e la pittura. I fratelli si scambiarono tra il 1872-1890 centinaia di lettere: più di 600 da Vincent a Theo e 40 da Theo a Vincent.
Anche se molte di queste lettere non sono datate, gli storici dell'arte sono stati in grado di ordinarle cronologicamente. Il periodo in cui Vincent visse a Parigi è il più difficile da ricostruire per gli storici, poiché i due fratelli, vivendo insieme, non ebbero bisogno di scriversi.

For American painter Dan Beck, painting is "a balancing act between opposite ideas - direct observation and instinct, control and spontaneity, even between the literal and the symbolic. It seems to me that although a painter is deeply involved with his own private investigation, his real aim is to communicate something that only the person looking at the painting really understands".

For many years I traveled the world as a global VP for a fortune 500 fragrance and flavor company . I witnessed first hand the wonders and beauty of our world. I have attempted to photograph some of the beauty of our world to share with others. Many years ago I came across a wonderful French term, "objet trouve". Webster's Dictionary defines the term as, "a natural object found by chance and held to have aesthetic value, (e.g. driftwood) especially though the working of natural forces". I attempt to create "objet trouve" in my photographs. The wonders I find in nature are photographed in an attempt to create art. All photographs of animals, including birds, are taken in the wild. None of my work is of animals in zoos or rehab facilities. I am a published wildlife photographer but a true amateur.

Mariska Karto is a American photographer/illustrator born in Suriname, South-America and raised in Holland. Mariska Karto started her artistic photography in 2010 with the urge to express her inner world. She mainly inspired by the old world (loving the magic of the old and dusty world), the magic of woman and the struggle of human emotions.
A part of her work is translated in visuals from dark to bright. Human feeling is the key that inspires her. Human development related to spirituality is also an important factor. Her images tell stories of a world deep within us. They show us a dark world and secret atmospheres, but they also show us a dreamy mood of a tender and soft dreamworld.
If everything is too much, if the feeling overflows, a new dimension exists. In this dimension Mariska shoots her visual storytelling photographs.

Born in Israel, Ora Tamir, Israeli painter, immigrated to California in 1980. Ora’s Oil Paintings are purely intuitive, surreal with a futuristic quality and haunting beauty. The images are personal, touch the soul and have a distinct unique feel to them. Each of Ora’s original oil paintings are a long labor of love. The first step is an idea. A wooden board is coated with gesso (a painter’s medium) and sanded until a very smooth undercoat results. Oil paints and sable brushes are used to paint a complete background. After it has dried, another layer is applied. Symbolic stories are created and images come to life. The painting evolves and changes; it is finished when, as Ora says, “It feels right”. Completing a painting takes anywhere from a month, to several years.

- I am a self-taught artist from Lahore, Pakistan, specializing in the impressionist style of art. For me a painting is not just blobs of paint on your canvas; it’s your mind, soul, energy, personality and mood. When a single painting is completed, you look at it and smile; the more you look at it, the wider the smile gets. Sometimes you just don’t want to give your work away, feeling a connection with it like that’s your child and only YOU have the right over it! But I want to share this happiness with the world. I want every painting of mine to cheer you up.

Ukrainian painter Александр Павленко was born in Izmail. He made his first drawing during his first year in school. In 1984, after finishing art school he took private drawing lessons at the studio of another Izmail artist, where he was able to further develop his drawing technique. His technique became so well developed that he is able to achieve any effect desired. The core of his work is based on composition and internal movement of forms. His work always includes reality and fantasy. For example, in his painting “Sweet Smack of Secret”, done in the style of Pointillism, the girl is real as is the space near her, but the horizon is portrayed as if from outer space. First he sketches the subject, and then he devotes much time to the deciding of matters of composition. Very often the completed works bears little resemblance to the original sketches, but rather reflect the artist’s philosophical view of the subject.
