The Fine Art of Steve Henderson

"Shore Leave" © Steve Henderson
Steve Henderson creates breathtaking, richly textured worlds that glow with emotion. His painting style is loose and free, bursting with vibrant color and passion, yet also filled with a careful poise and elegance. Each work exudes a sweet stillness that transfixes the viewer, transporting them to a peaceful place within.

A master of light and shadow, he brings his subjects to life with soft, careful brushstrokes and leaves just enough up to the imagination, allowing people to draw from their own experiences and memories. Henderson’s fine art style is a fusion of representationalism and impressionism, which he calls “emotional realism.” The key is to capture the essence of a mood or feeling in colors, lines, and shapes and imbue it into that moment in time.

Steve has been painting and drawing since he was a child. At eight, he sketched human anatomy figures from his older brother’s biology books. In middle school, his art teacher pulled his parents aside and encouraged them to enroll him in private advanced art education. Though at the time they couldn’t afford to do that, they did take him to a local artist’s studio where he met the artist and gained inspiration from their work. He continued to paint and draw throughout high school, and eventually immersed himself in the art world when he attended Central Washington University.

For more than 20 years after that, Henderson made a living as a professional illustrator. He found he had a talent for emulating any style of art -- from cartoon caricature to cubism. His versatility extends to a variety of media, including watercolor, acrylic, oil, pastel, pencil, and charcoal, as well as being well versed in computer software such as InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. This career trained him over the years to work faster, think faster, meet deadlines, reach goals and work with a variety of media and subject matter.

"Emergence" © Steve Henderson
Much of Steve’s inspiration for his paintings is found in the world that surrounds him: his family and loved ones, as well as the Pacific Northwest, where he lives. The modern Northwest has canyons, meadows, beaches, mountains, deserts, forests, lakes; a vast multitude of geographical wonders in a relatively small space. He hikes and bicycles everywhere, taking thousands of reference shots along the way – in fact, all of the scenes he paints represent places where he has physically been. He says that there are many beautiful, isolated areas hidden very close to where people walk, bicycle, or drive every day, and he loves discovering and capturing them on canvas.

Steve Henderson sums up his passion for his medium: “Few things in life allow one to express something so intangible as an emotion. There are writing and filmography, both of which require some time for interpretation. There is photography, but it is reliant on technology. Painting is manipulated directly from the one creating, and its impact can be felt almost immediately. It is as close to magic as I can get.”

Is Your Art Licensable?

There are a lot of artists and photographers out there who aspire to make money from their creations. Nowadays, with the current technology, it is easier than ever to develop a web presence and offer your work for sale with little or no cost. Your ability to succeed depends solely on the likeability of your art and your ability to promote it.

However, licensing your art is a completely different ball of wax. There is so much that goes into licensing and so many factors that contribute to your success. But before we can even start talking about all of that, you first will need to ask yourself whether or not your art is licensable.

First off, there is a market for most kinds of artwork out there, if you know how to find it. Abstracts find their biggest market in the interior design industry. Landscapes and Seascapes have a large market in interior design, but are also more marketable on things like calendars, puzzles, merchandise, and other things as well. Florals are extremely popular. And don’t forgot other niches like cartoons, fantasy art, pop art, patterns, and so on. The only thing is, just because you have created something that fits one of these categories doesn’t make it licensable.

For starters, there is already so much of this flooding the marketplace that only those who are truly exceptional really stand any chance. So your art might even be good – but good is the kiss of death. You need to be great. You need to have spent the years and dedication necessary to have become a master at your craft. If that isn’t enough, even people who are great aren’t always successful. You have to do something different. You have to step outside the box and create something new and fresh. By doing so, you become a big fish in a small pond, rather than a small fish drowned out by a hundred other small fish in a lake.

I’m not trying to discourage you – really. It is very possible and completely doable to make a name for yourself in the licensing industry. The point that I’m trying to make is, I see artists and photographers wanting to skip ahead to the making money part, and neglect the #1 thing that will ultimately determine their success or not: the quality of their art. It’s far too easy to go out and snap a few pictures that look nice with your digital camera and say, “I’m an artist!” The shots might be nice, but it takes hours and months and years of practice to hone a discerning eye. You might see nothing wrong with the picture, but professionals who have been doing this for much longer than you have will look at it and see the progress that still needs to be made before they can sell it.

Licensing is a very lucrative market and there are always new opportunities for artists. But don’t become so wrapped up in making sales that you forget how important creating is. Your passion and love for making beautiful things and incessant practice is what will determine whether your art is good enough to license. Make this your #1 priority, and you will stand a much higher chance of being successful.

Focus On Photography

Abstract Photography by John R. Math
Photography is such a wonderful medium for creativity! The world is always shifting and changing around us; no sunset will ever be the same, no flower will ever bloom twice. Photography allows us to capture those breathtaking moments and immortalize them in a piece of art. We have the chance to take them home and hang them on our wall where we can bask in their beauty every day.

Some people have said that they don’t feel like photography is really art; they say it is far easier to take a picture of something than it is to paint it. Although I am not negating that it takes an incredible amount of skill and practice to paint a painting, there is an equal amount of effort that goes into creating a powerful photograph as well.

Landscape Photography by Tom Griffithe

The technicalities are in the equipment and the light, rather than with pencil strokes and paint. But they must know and understand all of the same rules of composition and color that an artist knows. The major difference is that a painter can create what they imagine; a photographer must work to capture the purest essence of what is already there. And taking exceptional photographs is no easy task!

Botanical Scannography by Marsha Tudor

Peaceful Photography by Ricardo Vela

The internet is flooded with millions of point and click snapshots that make this all the more obvious – you cannot simply point a camera at something pretty and have it come out perfect most of the time. The experienced, disciplined photographer will know intuitively where to stand to capture the light just right, and to compose it perfectly in the frame. It takes endless hours of practice and patience and growth to become a truly exceptional photographer. That is why when you hang a piece of fine art photography on your wall, you enjoy it just like you would a painting. Not only is it a beautiful piece of work, but it reflects the photographer’s time and skills as well.

The Latin Jazz Art of Ken Esteves

"No Busking Norman Marks" © Ken Esteves
Bright colors and straight lines are painted across canvas, filling the space the way melodies and notes do as they settle in throughout a room. Ken Esteves’s impressionist paintings are depictions of his relationship with music; a way of bringing what he hears to a visual medium. This style takes its flavors from the music and dance that inspires him: Latin Jazz, the Mambo, and the Cha Cha. He captures the smoky cabarets and jazz filled nights with bold brush strokes and vivid tones, immersing you in his world.

"Joe Loco Orchestra" © Ken Esteves
Ken began drawing and painting in grade school, winning his first art competition at Barnsdall on Vermont in the fourth grade. Later on at Franklin High School near Ken's home on Mt. Washington, he won every prestigious award to be had in their Art Department. Ken attributes much of his artistic influence to his high school teacher, who guided him on his journey as an artist. He later went on to the newly founded Pasadena Art Center and LACC to study the fine arts. As an adult Ken spent time studying with UCLA's former professor Antoine Sabas, who was also a major influence on him.

"Ingrid Flitter" © Ken Esteves
As an artist, Ken has been lucky to have a variety of experiences that shaped his creative vision. When he was young, he and his family would travel with his father's band across the country watching them play in famous places such as The Apollo, The Orpheum, The Sands, and The Rumba Room. His father, Joe Loco, was one of the founding fathers of Latin Jazz, and his experiences with him completely immersed him in that world. Once they were settled in LA, Ken won many citywide contests, made a tremendous amount of valuable lifelong friendships, and keeps his Latin spirit young at heart through his artwork.

"Ronnie and the Classics" © Ken Esteves
Ken gains much of his inspiration from true life experiences, music (mainly jazz), his father's legacy, his Provence, and his love of continually searching for something new and different. His main purpose is to capture the big picture of life into one scene, whether it be a band or people sharing a festive experience. Each image is a story of an actual event or a moment in time.

The Artist’s Recipe For Success

By Tien Frogget
Do not repost without permission from author

Take 1/2 cup pure, unrefined inspiration and mix it with 2 cups of passion in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally. Add 1/2 cup discipline and let simmer.

After it begins to thicken, pour through a fine strainer to remove as much negativity, doubt, and self-criticism as you can. Do this a few times if necessary. Return to heat and continue to stir occasionally.

In a large mixing bowl, combine equal parts books, classes, and life experience. Knead together gently until a soft dough forms. Be careful not to over-knead it however, you still want your dough to be nice and flexible! Put your dough on a clean surface and roll it out into a circle. Take care to keep from rolling it out too thin; you want an even foundation.

Once your sauce has become thick and aromatic, add 1 cup of innovation and 3 cups of mistakes. Remove from heat and pour evenly over your dough. Congratulations! You now have your talent. A lot of people try to skip some of these steps (especially the mistakes!) and then give up. If you’ve made it this far, you’re doing great.

Next, you’re going to want to sprinkle your talent with plenty of patience, and a lot more passion. Don’t worry about measuring; just go ahead and eyeball it. Then put it in the oven, and bake it for as long as it takes. Every talent takes a different amount of time to cook, and you can’t rush it. Check the oven occasionally, and if you notice any bubbles of negativity or self-criticism popping up, be sure to scrape them off. Sprinkle with more patience if need be.

If you give up and walk away too soon, or if doubt bubbles take over your talent, it can completely collapse and never see its full potential. The key is endless loving care and the willingness to stick with it for as long as it takes.

You will know when your talent has finally baked into a success when people begin crowding around the oven, asking you if they can have some to take home with them.

The Fine Art of Stephen Schubert

"Eternal Love" © Stephen Schubert
Stephen Schubert’s paintings are vibrant and colorful works of art with incredible depth and texture. He paints a variety of subject matter, yet his distinct style carries across to each individual canvas and ties them all together.

Rich hues, bold lines, and recurring shapes compose his gorgeous abstract pieces, with just a hint or two of something identifiable to draw you in and make you want more. His Asian art and Koi ponds are soft and detailed, filling the viewer with a sense of peace and serenity. His work is perfectly suited for both residential and commercial interior design projects.

"Blue Drop" © Stephen Schubert
Having lived a life peppered with various odd jobs and work environments, including a bartender, a DJ, a copywriter, a spokesperson, and an actor, Schubert has lived a full life with much experience to draw inspiration from. More than his day to day life, however, it is the simple aspects of nature that surround him that give him the greatest stirrings in his soul; the scent of a water lily, the buzzing of a dragonfly, catching tadpoles in nearby ponds and bringing them to his Japanese garden. He loves traveling as well, and finds the details of his ever-changing surroundings integrating themselves into his work – things like the simple colors and shapes of a clothesline reflected in a puddle, a speeding train, or a bowl of soup.

"Repeat 1" © Stephen Schubert
For a long time, Stephen expressed himself creatively by making foam core abstract construction with clocks. These muti-dimensional pieces were extremely well-received for their unique beauty and unconventional technique. He became known for his 3-D realism and was very successful, selling in over 40 galleries around the country.

"Bamboo 1" © Stephen Schubert
Like all artists, he is always continually evolving and branching off into new styles. His latest body of work takes a completely different direction from his earlier pieces. Beginning with Mediterranean and Asian influences, he has created a variety of contemporary abstracts that are perfect for interiors and work well with a variety of colors. He has also worked on a number of commissions and has discovered that he absolutely loves working with a client to find just the right expression that they are wanting. He revels in revealing meaning in a space, tailoring it to their specific tastes and making it right for them.

Schubert’s work can be found in private art collections around the world including those of celebrities such as Christopher Reeve, Rita Rudner, hit songwriter Diane Warren, John Ritter, world champion tennis player Andy Roddick. He is one of OCDesigner’s newest artists.

The Abstract Photography of Tom Druin

"Along the Heavens" © Tom Druin
Tom Druin is a fine art photographer with a talent for taking things that are ordinary and recreating them in such a way that they become extraordinary. Through his art, he moves you to a place where reality and fantasy overlap. Although he has photographed a wide variety of subject matter, his most striking work is his collection of abstracts. Vivid colors melt together with unique shapes and textures, capturing your imagination and keeping you riveted in awe.

"Alignment" © Tom Druin
Druin has an incredibly keen eye for detail and has mastered composition. Many of his images simply leap out at you, speaking songs of simple beauty and inviting you to look closer and lose yourself in another world. He is truly a painter without a paintbrush, for every aspect of his work is painstakingly poignant and carefully created.

"Aged" © Tom Druin
It is no wonder that his photographs are so eloquent, however; he has spent most of his life with a camera in hand. When he was only 7, he started out by throwing rocks in the air and attempting to take pictures of them. Since then, things have evolved and he has spent a lot of time photographing a variety of subjects. He tried his hand at wedding photography, but discovered that he preferred the quiet peace and slow pace of nature to capturing people. He has never taken any classes in art or photography, however; only endless hours of practice and a passion for creating have honed his skills.

"Reformed" © Tom Druin
Tom has been through a great deal in his life and his personal journey has been an integral part of his photography. One of the most difficult things he experienced was the untimely death of his wife and the love of his life, who he had been married to for twenty years. This loss was a tremendous obstacle for him, but after much time and healing he was able to allow it to take him even deeper into his art. His spirituality and his love for being a father have both been powerful inspiration as well, motivating him to make peace with life and care even more for others.

"Composed" © Tom Druin
The richly textured experience that he has lived shines through his work, adding layers of beauty that are not seen so much as they are felt. Because he enjoys taking photographs of subjects that are not typically things other people would notice or find special, his work allows what is underneath to shine through even more, making it a truly unique experience.

The Cultural and Metaphysical Art of Lucia Gómez

Untitled No. 121 © Lucia Gómez
Lucia Gómez’s abstract paintings are a breathtakingly rich experience. Swirls of color and shape sweep across the canvas in a poignant dance between the real and the ethereal, shifting subtly between the two in a way that allows your imagination to explore without boundary. She has this incredible ability to recreate with a paintbrush that which we may only see in our mind’s eye. There is so much more to her art than is revealed at first glance— it pulls you in, inviting you to look and lose yourself within its mesmerizing hues.

"Burning" © Lucia Gómez
Gómez’s mastery of composition and repetition of shape lay the perfect framework for the soft smudges of color, smooth lines, and recognizable objects that bring it all together. The hint of a staircase; the suggestion of candles glowing in a shaft of sunlight; the dark silhouette of a stranger. It is the metaphysical nature of her work that adds that extra sense of depth and wonder to each piece. Much of her paintings express shamanic themes and archetypal symbolism derived from several different cultures, including Central and South America, Australia, and the Far East.

"City Memory" © Lucia Gómez
She doesn’t plan much of her work; instead, she finds herself in a deep state of relaxation and then just allows it to flow through her and create an expression of the journey she is taking in her mind and heart to imagined spaces, caves, and labyrinths. This gives her limitless opportunity for open self-expression, and also allows viewers the chance to interpret them in their own way, drawing their own conclusions and having their own personal experiences.

Lucía’s paintings have been featured in several both solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries in South America , the Dominican Republic, Mexico, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada, including the McMaster Museum of Art in Toronto, the Art Gallery of Hamilton in Ontario, the Sol Gallery, the Florida Museum of Hispanic and Latin American Art, the Artesanos Gallery in Miami, the Florida International University, the Concertina Gallery in London, Shah Alam Gallery in Malaysia, and the Accademia D'arte Di Pisa in Italy.

Untitled No. 21 © Lucia Gómez
Born and raised in Colombia, she has had a large number of exhibitions in galleries and cultural centers in Bogotá , including the Museo Enrique Grau, galería El Callejón, Universidad de Ciencias Aplicadas, galeria Baobab, galería Carrión Vivar, galería Casa Cuadrada, Fundación Santillana para Ibero América, Cámara de Comercio, and galería GAF. Much of her work has been exhibited at Alcaldía de Medellín, galería de arte El taller in Medellín, and Museo Comfamiliar in Barranquillla.

Are Interior Design Trends for You?

Interior design trends can be fun to follow and gain inspiration from. You can find some really nice color combinations and discover new things that you really like. But are they the best direction to go in for your home remodel?

I don’t typically recommend that clients try to follow the current trends, unless what’s hot right now is something that they absolutely love. What’s popular changes pretty quickly, and although you might be happy for the first few months that you have your chic design, once the trends begin to change again you might start to feel otherwise. Unless of course you love the design and don’t care that it’s last year’s hat, or if you plan on remodeling every year to keep up with the latest and greatest (some people do!)

A home is your most personal space; it should reflect the personalities of the people that live in it. Each room should be tailored to how much time you spend in it and the activities that you plan on doing in every one of them. The house should typically have a unified theme, and each room is a different facet of that main personality.

The best place to begin when you are thinking about hiring an interior designer to remodel your home is to ask yourself what you like. Begin noticing colors that speak to you. Cut pictures out of magazines or surf the internet and save images of rooms or furniture that you love. If you’re at a friend’s house and you see something that you really like, take a picture of it. All of this research will be incredibly valuable when you sit down with the designer to discuss what you want.

The more notes that you have and the more examples of things that you like that you can give to them, the better. They will begin to see patterns in your choices and be able to take that and create rooms that are specially tailored to your personal taste. Then your home will reflect you, not the passing fancies of designers.

You are going to be living in these spaces every day. It’s not worth all of the time and effort and cost to decorate it in a way that someone else likes, because you will not get nearly as much enjoyment out of it as you would it if it were custom tailored to suit you. You want to be able to come home every day, take a deep breath as you look around, and feel so good to be home.

Creativity Booster: Learning to Let Loose!

When I was a kid, my mom gave me a lot of creative freedom. Both my mom and my grandma are artists, so I started drawing and painting at an early age. Pretty soon I was painting and drawing on other things, too, like the walls. I don’t remember her ever getting upset with me, though. She was always proud of me. I didn’t realize this was such an unusual thing until I began to see how other parents reacted to the same situations. Then I realized I had it good!

One time I was in school and the teacher handed out a bunch of pages from a coloring book for everyone, along with boxes of crayons. Apparently, I refused to color with everyone else. The teacher was frustrated with me and called my house. When my mom asked me why I wouldn’t color, I said, “somebody else already drew on the paper, mom!” I was used to being given a blank page.

Another time, my best friend and I were drawing pictures with magic markers, and we got bored and decided it would be more fun to draw on ourselves. We spent a good hour drawing pictures all over our arms, our chest, our faces, our legs, and our feet. We were so proud of our work. I still remember the reaction when her mom saw us. She was furious! She sent me home and immediately made my friend take a bath. I went home and my mom was delighted. “Oh, look how creative you two are!” The contrast between parenting methods has stuck with me to this day.

Now that I’m an adult, I still see remnants of both worlds in everything; the creative freedom that I was always given is definitely not the norm. It seems that not just parents, but most environments – work, school, and home – have strict rules that must be upheld and certain ways that things must be done. It is only more recently that creativity has started to become more prized than ever before. Work environments like Google have been born and people are realizing that having fun doesn’t hinder our performance; it actually improves it!

What old, outdated rules are you still following? Where could you break out of the box and allow yourself to let loose a little? Maybe we can’t always change our work environments, but we all have varying degrees of control over our personal life. The negative voices in our heads that put us down and say, “you can’t do that,” are the very barriers that keep us from making creative breakthroughs!

When you give yourself permission to color outside the lines and paint in places you’re not “supposed” to, you set your creative self free. Think about how you can let loose and allow yourself to express your creativity without fear of repercussion or criticism. Give yourself a chance. Be a little kid again, and let yourself be free to just play.

How Interior Design Affects Your Well-Being – Part 2

Last week I shared with you some of the ways that interior design affects your overall mood and your mental, emotional, and physical well-being. I also promised you that this week I would get into more detail and share with you some of things that can benefit you more specifically, based on your personality. So here you go!

1. The Doer: Are you a very active, action-oriented person? Do you leap out of bed in the morning feeling optimistic and enthusiastic about life, ready to take on the day? Are you very practical, logical, and organized? Are you competitive, disciplined, and driven? Are you working towards something that is very important to you?

If so, you will most likely benefit from an environment where you get to enjoy simple and somewhat rustic décor. Clutter will drive you crazy and tidiness and organization will bring you a sense of peace and clarity. You would probably love living in a log cabin style home or house with lots of gorgeous wood flooring, walls, or décor. Art or photographs of nature feed your soul more than anything.

2. The Dreamer: Are you a very independent person who needs your freedom? Are you often reflective and dreamy, with excellent intuition? Do you like philosophical discussions about life? Are you artistic or creative, or maybe just a little bit dramatic? Are you single-focused, determined, and tenacious?

If so, you will most likely benefit from an environment where you get to enjoy the peaceful beauty of water in some way; whether it’s simply living near the ocean or on the edge of a lake, or having a small waterfall or fountain in your home or garden. You thrive in wide spaces and large, open rooms, so doing things like adding large mirrors in some of your smaller rooms can help in that department. Luxury is also very important to you; having a great big bath tub or extremely comfortable mattress will make a big difference in your well-being.

3. The Nurturer: Are you grounded, diplomatic, and patient? Are you thoughtful, caring, generous, and helpful? Do you sometimes care more about other people than you do yourself? Do you love family get-togethers and spending time with friends and networking with people? Do you appreciate the creature comforts in life? Do you enjoy travel? Do you treasure the things that hold sentimental value for you?

If so, you will most likely benefit from an environment that is warm and cozy. You love having all of your favorite things around you: photographs of family and friends, collectibles, souvenirs from your travels, and other mementos. You need a big comfy chair that you can relax in at the end of the day and enjoy a snack and a movie or good book. You also love having a comfortable space where friends and family can come visit you. A nice kitchen is likely important to you. You will feel best when you can maintain the balance of keeping all the things around you that you love and being able to keep it somewhat tidy as well.

4.  The Sensitive: Are you very aware of your environment—perhaps more so than most people? Do you enjoy having things clean and tidy, and feel frustrated when things are out of place? Are you very tuned in to the people around you, and always seem to know what they are feeling? Are you a gracious, charming host who enjoys people, but you absolutely cannot live without your own space? Are you somewhat of a visionary, and a little bit idealistic?

If so, you will most likely benefit from a very minimalist environment where you have plenty of extra space. You feel best when you are around monochrome or pale colors, and neutrals or metallic colors. Ideally, you would choose to live on the top of a hill or just somewhere with a wide, sweeping view. You need to keep things neat and tidy in order to feel comfortable.

5.  The Lover: Are you exuberant and joyful, filled with a passion for living? Are your family and friends more important to you than almost anything else? Do you have a boundless store of energy and excitement for experiencing new things? Do you enjoy change and having fun? Do you seem to come up with more fantastic ideas than you know what to do with? Are you great at starting new projects and getting everyone else inspired as well?

If so, you will most likely benefit from an environment where you get to enjoy unusual architecture and décor. You feel best when you are in a unique environment with avant-garde furniture, eccentric or unique art, and vibrant colors. Since you probably have several projects that you are working on right now, you would benefit most from having an office with multiple desks, giving you the ability to work on one thing for a while and then move on to the next without having to clear the space and clean things up, allowing you to pick up right where you left off next time you sit down.
