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.
