Welcome to the Long Island Artists Community
William de Kooning
In 1926 de Kooning entered the United States as a stowaway on a British freighter, the SS Shelly, to Newport, Virginia. He then went by ship to Boston, and took a train from Boston to Rhode Island, and eventually settled in Hoboken, New Jersey, where he supported himself as a house painter. In 1927 he moved to a studio in Manhattan and came under the influence of the artist, connoisseur, and art critic John D. Graham and the painter Arshile Gorky. Gorky became one of de Kooning's closest friends.
Art On The East End

The East End has been a vibrant art community since the 1870s, when the Long Island Rail Road made the area easily accessible from New York City. Thomas Moran settled in East Hampton with his family in 1884, and his studio soon became a gathering place for artists and intellectuals. A number of Moran's bucolic landscapes are featured in the exhibition, including A Midsummer Day, East Hampton, Long Island (1903), which captures the lush greenery of the countryside. Childe Hassam (1859-1935), one of America's most prominent Impressionists, was a seasonal resident of the Hamptons from 1919 until his death. One of many artists fascinated by the area's unique quality of light, Hassam used short brushstrokes and a vivid color palette to evoke glimmering and flickering rays of light in his oil painting Little Old Cottage, Egypt Lane, East Hampton.

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.
The Paint Color Chart
Experience has taught us that certain combinations of colors, whether in nature or art, affect the eye and mind agreeably, while others give offense. We call the former "harmonies," the latter "discords."
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.
