Painting is my Life is not only the story of Albert Dolmans’ varied life and travels, but the result of the pleasure he has taken in recording on canvas or paper what has struck him along the way. Its numerous color plates and drawings reveal his talent to capture the majestic and the mundane, while proving just how universal and timeless his art has remained, despite a changing world. A figurative artist, he shares with the reader his deep affinity with nature and his passion for his craft. <br />Here you have a window onto the life of this Dutch-American artist, whose possibilities changed completely when, just a young boy he was up-rooted from his sleepy village in southern Holland, literally weeks before the Germans marched into it. With his mother and sisters, he crossed Europe by train to Genoa, Italy, to join the ship that would take them across the Atlantic to settle in Berkeley, California, to face the life-changing experiences that awaited him in the United States. <br />A scholarship student at the Californian College of the Arts in Oakland, he studied under George Post, Karl Baumann, and Otis Oldfield. Following his passion as an artist, he later became part of the North Californian Figurative School and the Society of Western Artists. It was also about this time, that with great pride he became an American citizen.<br />The varied scenery of California inspired him, as did the vastness and variety of so many States. He never tired of driving across the country, (which he did on four occasions), each time taking a different route, discovering and painting the many facets that struck him along the way. Albert also began returning to Europe, especially to his native Holland which naturally spoke to him. Travelling through the rest of Europe and beyond for the first time, he was struck by the characteristic scenery of each, and marveled at the impressive architecture so typical of each.<br />An admirer of Monet and Sisley, his work is impressionistic. Whether in oils, watercolors pastels or pen and ink, this book shows the ease with which he catches the subtle differences in mood and atmosphere; from the magnitude and power of Yosemite National Park, to the simplicity of the Californian backcountry; the busy world harbor of Rotterdam, to the gentle landscape of the lowlands with its wide horizons; the contrasting cities of London, Paris, or Rome to a boatyard in Venice, a quiet graveyard in Wales or black-faced sheep in a sleepy village in the Scottish Highlands; ancient French hill villages like St. Paul de Vence, lavender fields or the vineyards of Provence, or the vitality and color of the Riviera. And in all such places, Albert finds and taps into the calm diversity of nature which grounds and inspires him. <br />Painting is my Life is the story of a contented man, the Dutch-American landscape painter who modestly shares his experiences together with the product of what he has enjoyed and created. Now in his mid eighties, he continues to paint, as this is his raison d’etre – and what he continues to most enjoy doing.

<h2>Open your mind through unforgettable art</h2><p>The pictures in this book show visions from alternative realities, existing parallel to our known physical world. These visions were brought onto the canvas in a unique artistic technique by artist Orna Ben-Shoshan. Every detail in the images conveys deep spiritual significance and opens a door to subconscious sources and insightful inspiration. The innocent figures in the images live in worlds free of evil or conflict. Ben-Shoshan’s art offers an unforgettable visit to these utopian realities, where spirit governs matter.</p><h3><b>Art that speaks directly to the unconscious </b></h3><p>Ben-Shoshan’s artwork speaks directly to the heart. Her pictures touch the viewer with a unique atmosphere and exceptional images, speaking beyond words, concepts, or artistic knowledge. The paintings were created in a long and meticulous process, and demonstrate a rare level of technical perfection. They are brought to you here in Premium Color and high resolution. </p><h3><b>Take a glimpse into parallel dimensions of existence and come back with insight and inspiration</b></h3><p>Orna Ben-Shoshan is an acclaimed Israeli painter. As an autodidact artist, she never attained formal art education. Being qualified as a graphic designer and illustrator, she developed her distinct style along many years of painting and experimenting. In 1982 she moved to the U.S.A and started her career as a professional artist. Since then, her artwork has been exhibited in numerous galleries, solo and group exhibitions in the USA, Europe and Israel.</p><br />

<p> This is an “artists’ eBook” made in parallel to the exhibition of Ondrej Brody & Kristofer Paetau at the MAM – Museum of Modern Art – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This eBook is not an exhibition catalogue – it is an independent work: a collaboration between the artists and the curator of the exhibition, Luiz Camillo Osorio who wrote the text of this book to accompany details of the 30 paintings commissioned in China by Ondrej Brody & Kristofer Paetau (an installation of 30 paintings in oil on canvas – 30 x 40 cm – which can be presented in different ways, according to the space). At the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro, the installation was accompanied by the text of the curator and formed a layout. </p>

Conferencia en la E.U. de Magisterio de Cuenca "Fray Luis de León".<br /><br />"… en la necesidad de elegir a un pintor que haya "dinamizado el tiempo" como ningún otro, debemos rendirnos ante Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez, e intentar mostrar su grandeza de la forma más sencilla y convincente de que seamos capaces. "<br /><br />"¿En qué consiste, pues, ese gran descubrimiento velazqueño que todos los manuales de historia del arte nos presentan como la "perspectiva aérea"? Mi hipótesis es la siguiente: no es una nueva manera de pintar el espacio, sino una manera sumamente original de pintar el tiempo, o si lo prefieren, de temporalizar el espacio poniéndole en movimiento, o sea, se trata de conseguir una imagen efectivamente "real",…"<br /><br />Títulos relacionados: "Velázquez" de la colección Historia del Arte Español de HIARES.

The River Journal Workshop is about exploring the beauty of the waterway landscape. <br />Artist/author Chris Hammond shares his visual approach to journaling as a way to develop touch, notice more, and get closer to nature. <br />“Along with the popularity of the urban sketchers movement, now it seems that a lot of people are interested in developing a visual layer and dimension to their journal work. I try to help them take a closer look at nature - through their journal or sketchbook. Often students are surprised by what turns up in their drawings - things they didn’t notice beforehand. That’s sort of the value of it. And it’s also the fun of it.”<br />
