Wild Geese ~ Aqua Doodle Waiting to Happen!

You become things, you become an atmosphere, and if you become it, which means you incorporate it within you, you can also give it back. You can put this feeling into a picture. A painter can do it. And a musician can do it and I think a photographer can do that too and that I would call the dreaming with open eyes.   ~ Ernst Hass

OH Fargo ~ NORM! People need little stamps too.....

Norm Gunderson: They announced it.
Marge Gunderson: They announced it?
Norm Gunderson: Yeah.
Marge Gunderson: So?
Norm Gunderson: Three-cent stamp.
Marge Gunderson: Your mallard?
Norm Gunderson: Yeah.
Marge Gunderson: Oh, that's terrific.
Norm Gunderson: It's just a three-cent stamp.
Marge Gunderson: It's terrific.
Norm Gunderson: Hautman's blue-winged teal got the 29-cent. People don't much use the three-cent.
Marge Gunderson: Oh, for Pete's sake. Of course they do. Whenever they raise the postage, people need the little stamps.

You go Marge!

Oh Fargo! 

The federal government accused a 6-year-old of plagiarism and stripped her of her victory in this year’s national Junior Duck Stamp contest, leaving the youngest-ever winner in tears and igniting a fierce debate in the wildlife art community over artistic techniques, precocious youngsters and catty parents.

Thank You.....

P.E.N. Studio wishes to thank her followers and visitors from China, the United States,
Germany, the United Kingdom, Turkey, Canada, India, France, Poland, the Philippines,
the Netherlands and the Ukraine.  

All art arises out of gratitude, a deep pervasive feeling that you are glad something exists outside yourself, that something can complete you.
One looks at life as a gift, a painting of lights and darks, each defining the other, not a series of good and bad things. Giving thanks, and often, frees the spirit and makes the heart secure.

Have a creative day ya'll!
Thanks for Visiting!

The History of the Color Wheel

Photo by astro-dudes
The first color wheel has been attributed to Sir Isaac Newton, who in 1706 arranged red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet into a natural progression on a rotating disk. As the disk spins, the colors blur together so rapidly that the human eye sees white. From there the organization of color has taken many forms, from tables and charts, to triangles and and wheels the history.

Artist's From A to Z - F = Michael Fantuz


Back to Artist's from A to Z 

Michael Fantuz

As a self-taught artist living in Newfoundland, Canada, I work primarily in oils on canvas using only a palette knife.


Michael Fantuz

I was born in Guelph Ontario in 1978. I am primarily a self taught artist,
and derive much of myartistic passion from my fraternal Grandfather,
Gastone Fantuz, and my sincere love for painting. My grandfather was an
Italian immigrant over 60 years ago. He came to this country with very
little and quickly established himself as a highly talented and technical
artist of varying disciplines. Gastone was killed in the mid 1960's and sadly
much of his work was stolen or lost. I inherited his palette knives and easel
only a few years ago, along with a rekindled passion for art and the
intense spiritual connection I have with a man I admire.
