Daniel Black

I was born in Princeton, NJ in 1960 and grew up in New York and Paris. Some of my earliest memories include drawing and painting, and I never lost that love. I was trained at New York University, Parsons School of Design, and the New School back in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, when Abstract Expressionism was still reigning as king. Most of my teachers tried desperately to steer me into abstraction, but instead I drove them to distraction. I stuck to my preference for romantic realism and have never regretted it.

Carly Haffner

Incorporating painting, drawing and sculpture Haffner creates a unique world inhabited by certain trademark creatures, some of her own invention, where the seemingly cute make dark sexual allusions related to her opinions on consumerism, and tell tales of environmental doom. Rendered crudely, horses and unicorns drink from mysterious pink pools of pollution; brightly colored cardboard cars and trucks spout trails of cotton exhaust from their tailpipes and often we see the trucks filled with adorable but morbid bags of trash. Recurring characters include several Godzilla types, a smiley face turned man with hearts for hands, a teddy bear girl whose mouth drools an unspecified liquid, a hot dog man, a dancing yam and a 1950's style super hero.

Making Encaustic Medium
I fell in love with encaustic paintings the first time I saw one hanging. There was just something about the work... The luminosity, the transparency, the brilliance. It was unlike anything that I had ever seen before. I knew I had to try it and once I did, I was hooked.
Introduction to Color Theory
Color is a very broad topic. Entire books have been written on color and it would be quite difficult to cover every aspect of it within the confines of this article. My hopes with this introduction to color theory is to peek your interest and hopefully cause you to study this topic further on your own. Understanding color theory is perhaps one of the most important aspects of becoming a good painter. When you understand the elements of color and how colors interact with one another, you have unlocked one of the biggest puzzles of painting
How to make your own oil paints
How to make your own oil paintsOil paints are made basically by mixing cold-pressed Linsed oil with pigment or color until a smooth buttery paint is produced. When the oil paint is used and applied to a surface the oil oxidizes or absorbs air and then forms a solid film that binds the pigment to the surface of the painting.
