“The best new TRANCE and PROGRESSIVE in a 2 hour Mix — Th-This is a state of Trance-Trance-Trance”

These words kick-off the most famous music show world-wide, a session from Armin-Van-Buuren’s ‘A State of Trance’.

Trance genre and I go way back. Been in love with this genre of music ever since I listened to ‘In and Out of Love’, before that I listened mostly to Techno and other Electronica sub-genres.

To the newbies out there, trance and progressive music is very euphoric, melodic and even hypnotic! It induces strong emotion (as classical music did, maybe due to its tempo between 125 and 160 bpm). Hence, in an art-block, am I? Let’s listen to some Trance (and maybe Bach’s Preludium in C Major too).

I find much of the art in these side-effects of creating art in itself. I would not use the eraser when most necessary. The rather polluted negative-space has created an aura of dream-like qualities- has as it not?

Wave Symbol

Its about time since I tried Digital once again. My graphics tablet is failing (Can’t leave Windows 8) , but I managed to create this, coping with the tablet losing pressure sensitivity every 10 minutes. Anywho, I shall buy a new one pretty soon. How are your thoughts about the Intuos Manga (Medium) or Intuos Pro (Medium)?

The wave stands still, motionless.

[Analysis] Terril Welch – FARM IN FOG

[Analysis] Terril Welch - FARM IN FOG

This is part analysis and part assessment.

This painting, fittingly titled the ‘Farm in Fog’, created on a 16×20″ gesso-board with a wood cradle, is quite a rousing piece of Impressionism.
The brush work is very reminiscent of Monet’s ‘The Summer, Poppy Field’ and ‘ Boy Fishing’ by Roy C. Nuse.

The painting describes a scene from a rural area. Free from the urban distortions of nature. We see only a single rooftop surrounded in trees, mist and grass with noticeable frozen dewdrops. The far background in hidden is mist – the contents hidden inside – undefined.

There is heavy fog, and hence low values of contrast. The color palette here seems very limited, I can remark on Burnt Umber, Olive Green, Prussian Green, Titanium White and Venetian Red. An expanse of ‘space’ is created by having a sparse foreground, with only the grass in proper focus and the rest of the trees and that one lone house out-of- focus ( although, paintings are meant to have everything in focus, and not photographic, with focus in the center and blurring out at the edges); hence, the use of ‘Impressionism’ for this has a dual effect, the scene and if interpreted with more ‘reality’, the background receding out of focus.
The use of rough dry brushes, has given it an aged look. As if, it is a painting from one’s vintage collection. The distortions and the ‘age’- make this painting ever more beautiful and sophisticated.

The vibrancy here is not created with color complements, but with the scene itself – regardless of the matte paints. The scene itself is fresh and alive with foliage – and nature. The blades of the grass flutter in the icy cold wind – even in this chill, ‘life’ and ‘nature’ is effervescent.

I recommend anyone who want to bring a splash of freshness into their living-room, to view it in detail ( and consider ordering it at: http://www.artsyhome.com/product/Farm-in-Fog )
