Some Days Are Loco

  Can you guess which 3 of these paintings are actually photo edits of Locomotives siting in the Montana Rail Link siding? It was a busy day attending the local Billings Art Association meeting and Tai Chi classes. I didn’t get time to post this one until the end of the day, but the images…

Refocusing on Value, Not Income, Quality, Not Quantity

What Do I Value I have been working hard to becoming a “discovered” artist by my social network and blog posts. I may be approaching the wrong goals at the wrong time. I am a retired computer geek who has recently discovered the joy of creating digital art instead of databases with my computers. I…

Going Out Of Your Mind – Become the Observer Of Your Mind

Every day is several new paintings here at Rising Rims Studios. I feel like there is value in sharing my artwork that is beyond entertainment value. I look at these image as a potential tool for viewers to find a little of the flow state that I find while I am creating them. Our monkey…

Painting The Day -Wednesday January 17

These are titled: Moonrise, Warm And Cozy, Phoenix, Resolute, High Plains, Inverse Reality, Sunset Garden, Duality I love the song by David Walburn about The Ghost of Charley Russell painting each new Montana sky. So here is my painting the new Montana Day. It was an interesting day. I resolved, starting yesterday, to publish only images…

Today in Paintings From RisingRims.com

Retaining Hope, Heart Felt, Glacial, Trees Growing Right, Trees Growing Left, Flare 4 Drama, Black Hole, Sea View Today I experimented with putting together a video showing how to order a print online from Walgreens and Costco. The process is going to be hard to get my average collector to learn without frustration. So I…

Today in Pictures

A Noisy and Curdled Look As usual, I was really pleased with these when they were first created. But just before posting them I found about half of them were not to my taste today. So I had to spice about 4 of them up before exposing them to the public. I keep promising to…

Can I Save You $50? or $100? or $1000?

One more day of photo edits – India Scenes. Then I am back to creating abstracts from scratch. Todays postings are more standard edits except for the one obvious double exposure with the 4 seated men dwarfing the standing men beneath them. Some day I may learn to draw and create image which are reproductions…

Pixel Exploration With Photo Edits

A Varied Path I love to take a different path or approach. This is not an approach recommended for an artist who is dependent on a group of existing collectors with same style expectations. That is one of the advantages of being an unsung artist without a body of collectors. Or being independently retired so…

A Cold Montana Winter, Beach Daydream

Some of these filled curve overlay pieces ended up having a “day at the beach” look. Their titles are: Sunburnt, Sand Castle, Lipstick Creations, Sonoma, Beach Sunset, Tall Torso, Leather Inlay, Birthday Suit

The Death of Physical Art (in my life)

Graffiti Cheer, Graffiti Hulk, Hurricane, Seeing Red, Seeing Blue, Facing Up To It, Passage Through Time, Shedding Fears – guess which title goes to which painting. It doesn’t really matter, you can make up your own titles. My Big Decision To Go All Digital Yesterday was a big day for me. I feel guided to…
