Tutorials for some of the gallery paintings are now available in the store.
Art is a natural lifelong process much like breathing, it's just something that I must do in order to continue. I can't image not creating or as someone disciplined in only one medium; that would go against my nature. Surface texture and depth play a major role in my creative process. It's through the senses of sight and touch that these surfaces are able to grasp one's attention so that my message can be successfully delivered. It's as though I am surrendering over to the viewer what he or she may already know but can't quite express in words. As soon as one message is delivered, I eagerly start the whole process over again; grabbing at new materials while researching and experimenting with new ways to deliver the next message. It's through this strong passion for creating art, especially acrylic and mixed media, that I chose to share my experience and knowledge. All that is required of you is an interested in learning or perhaps expanding upon those already developed skills. So welcome regardless of art experience level. C. Jernigan
OSTRICH EGG ART Did you know that an ostrich egg can weigh as much as four and a half pounds and feed as many as ten people? Its thick shell is similar to that of porcelain; making it a perfect surface for painting and carving beautiful works of art.
