Jerry Schwehm - Fine Artist
Pearl River, LA - United States
Born in the charming Old World city of New Orleans in 1948 Jerry developed his interest in art after watching a PBS program on Jackson Pollock. That inspired him to do his first canvas of colorful lines and blotches that was displayed in his family den for several years. It has since been lost. Over the years he experimented with other media-silk screen, photography, assemblage, but college, military, family, and work concerns took him away from art. After his wife died of cancer, Jerry retired from his law practice to do what he likes, cooking, canoeing, and art. After taking additional art classes he again tried assemblage then began painting his children from photographs. With encouragement from friends, he tried other subjects as well, including adaptations of Gauguin and Van Gogh. Finally, Jerry found his own personal style of painting, using acrylics in a Post-Impressionistic flare of bold colors and wavy lines.

Absinthe MAkes The Heart Grow Fonder by figstreetstudio


"Albert Maignan's "Green Muse" (1895): A poet succumbs to the Green Fairy.
Absinthe (i/ˈæbsɪnθ/ ab-sinth or /ˈæbsænθ/ ab-santh; French: [absɛ̃t]) is historically described as a distilled, highly alcoholic (45–74% ABV / 90-148 proof) beverage.[1][2][3][4] It is an anise-flavoured spirit derived from botanicals, including the flowers and leaves of Artemisia absinthium (a.k.a. "grande wormwood"), together with green anise, sweet fennel, and other medicinal and culinary herbs. Absinthe traditionally has a natural green colour but may also be colourless. It is commonly referred to in historical literature as "la fée verte" (the green fairy)."

Karma Elephant: What goes around comes around!

karma_elephant_magnet-



One of my favorite designs comes on shirts too.

Namaste ! 


Chir - Harana (The Stealing of the Garments of the Gopis)
"In a well-known episode it so transpired that the great lover god Krishna made away with the clothes of unmarried maidens, fourteen to seventeen years of age, bathing in the river Yamuna. Their fervent entreaties to him proved of no avail. It was only after they performed before him the eternal gesture of namaste was he satisfied, and agreed to hand back their garments so that they could recover their modesty."

Fauvism: St Louis Cathedral New Orleans Print

/cathedral_new_orleans_fauvist_colors_poster

I enjoy using the style of Fauvism in making my art with local landmarks. Here is the Cathedral in the French Quarter in the style of Fauvists. They used colors to express mood and were the beginning of abstract art. For more see http://www.artcyclopedia.com/history/fauvism.html

The artists most closely associated with Fauvism are Albert Marquet, Andre Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck and Henri Matisse.
