A Gifted Talent XXXV...Mark

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 10, 2014, 11:51 AM
Dear friends of the arts please allow me to introduce to you Mark and his digitally abstract impressionistic art. Some of you may already know of Mark's work but for those of you who don't…do take the time to visit his gallery. A rewarding trip I'm sure you'll find it to be.
I am not qualified to go into the techniques of Mark's creative process. I can only judge my opinions based on how the art affects me emotionally upon viewing. Does it strike emotional chords within me? Sincerely he art does. Time and again.
I find his work to be mainly impressionistic abstract in nature. There is another whole world going on deep inside the literal, yet subtle, subjects he creates. His work is precise, intelligent and designed with a seemingly conceptional purpose in mind. Each viewer can and will take away their very own interpretation of the world he digitally paints using color, texture and brush stroke as the tools to transport us from commonly used harsh lines to a softer impressionistic palette of gentle color and form. Mark's work also has a unique hook...it glows from within. Now that's very cool.
Much is said about "heart" and "soul" in many works seen here on DA. I think Mark hits that…well, hits that mark every time. Each image is so representative of his creatively talented minds eye which can only belong to that of a true artist.

Without further ado, may I present to you from the United States…

I hope you can afford the time to visit Mark's gallery soon.
It's a trip worth taking and as always...admission is free on DA.

I would like to say to my friends and watchers that if I haven't featured you, it by no means implies that your work doesn't warrant it.
I am easily the biggest procrastinator around. Forgive me...I hope to get to it eventually.
So many of you sincerely deserve solo shows as well.
Also I want to note that I try, in these journals, to highlight the talented work of the unsung artists of DA :thumbsup:
