I am a mother, a grandmother and a contemporary realist painter currently living in Montana. I was encouraged to be an artist when I was younger due to some sad events in my life. Through this experience I started to learn and understand how much of an impact being an artist and the art world in general could have on a person if given a chance. Later, I wanted to be a seascape painter and went to school where I received my Associates in Fine Art/Humanities (2007) and have been able to continue my artistic education through books, the internet and personal experiences. Today I do not just paint the ocean but I paint anything that inspires me. Through my artwork, I want to encourage happy thoughts, happy memories and positive perspectives in order to stimulate a happy heart within my viewer whether it be from a nature scene to something as simple as a favorite coffee cup. - Frankie Stockman 2021Please continue down for more information, interviews with artists and some painting tutorial and ideas! ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
A whole new perspective on the situation!
From now on with each project I think I am going to focus on one particular. My last painting was the castle and I paid more attention to the trees and that wonderful color green. I think when I focused on this alone I worried less about the painting as a whole and it came along naturally because I was not stressed out about it. Does that make sense? So as I was working on the under painting of this new painting and worrying about the perspective of the rocks, I worried less about the rest and just painted. When I was done and stepped back I realized I actually painted in a natural direction because I was relaxed and I could see it clear in my mind. This painting is going to work out. Never have I been this happy about a painting with just the under painting! I think I am rambling on. I am having a hard time explaining myself.
