Most Artists would use paint brushes or a palette knife to paint but the New York Artist, SACHA, would use toothpicks.
Since 2003, SACHA has found away to mix the colors by making circles, scratching the surface of the canvas and bringing out the whiteness of the canvas with a simple toothpick. These circles of movement are brought out in a new technique which SACHA calls CIRCULISM. Up-close you can see and feel the texture of the tiny and large circles. You can also see how SACHA, with… Continue

So a friend of mine is on here and told me I should join as well. I am not one to share a lot of my stuff or keep blogs. I decided I should give it a try, I mean, everyone else is doing it. Hahaha
I am a painter- photographer. I never really studied anything involving art, although most of the stuff I do is art related. I enjoy exploring art with a carefree, pressure free, and criticism free sense. I make most of my stuff at home in my living room. I hope to connect with new artists and… Continue

Zeitgeistlyrik: The Gurkhas Are With You (Satis Shroff)
The Gurkhas are upon you!
This was the battle-cry
That filled the British heart,
With pride and admiration,
And put the foe in fear.
Now the Gurkhas are not upon you.
They are with you,
Guarding the Queen at the Palace,
Doing security checks
And for Claudia Schiffer,
The Sultan of… Continue
