Jewell Art Expressionswww.ArtPal.com/Jewellartexpress
Hi, my name is Robin Jewell Roberts. I have been creating art for most of my life, many years just as an escape or a need to get out of my head onto a canvas a thought or feeling. Then as now, I love the total focus on an art piece, when you become one with the art that you are creating. The feeling of being able to pet the hair on a dog or feel that rain drop on a leaf. The soul of the painting itself. I have done paintings for children that have passed and have felt their soul in the room with me. In one of these paintings after giving it to the mother, the family kept commenting on the reflection in the walkway. I did not intentionally put it there and it wasn't until I revisited the painting that I saw it. To this day I believe it was the boys spirit with me who directed that add in to the painting for his mother.
I have given away many more paintings then I have sold. When I see that someone has a need for a painting, such as a death of a loved one, etc. I feel that the talent I was given freely was for a reason and to be shared when needed.
I went back to college when I was 46 in order to study art and strengthen my skills. I consider myself a fine artist, Oils are my favorite medium, but I also work with acrylics and watercolor. My grandchildren all paint, draw and express themselves through art at my home. My walls in my home and art studio is covered in their artwork. I may put some of their work on the site from time to time, good art should be showed and shared.
I am very much a realist and many of my paintings reflect that. I do enjoy fantasy and many other mediums, a natural Gemini, I get bored with just one side. I also like to dabble in photography, which you will see from time to time.
My Portfolio includes, several art awards for my work, newspaper recognition for several pieces. Mural for the county seat within the county I live in. I also have done commissioned work and have worked with my mentor on several large jobs, including a six foot statue of "John the Baptist".
I now find myself in a place where I am turning 59, no longer interested in working for some other persons benefit. I want to spend the rest of my life creating and exploring my talents and what can be produced through that.
So here I am, honored to be with so many talented artists. Thank you for visiting and I hope you will return, it will take a few weeks to get more pics up on page and. as always I will be working on more. Hope to see you soon.
