I just love discovering hot new artists that join eSnips. Today I found James who showcases his creations in his "Art of James V. Dion" folder. Simply beautiful paintings! He's also selling his artwork in this folder, so if you love it you can also get it for yourself (James uses the eSnips Marketplace feature to sell his art).
James has been drawing since he can remember. He mentions on his profile:
"My inspiration comes from nowhere in particular. I sit and draw and it flows out. I began to believe in myself as an artist when someone I worked with stole a drawing I had done on a napkin (when we were out having drinks one night) had it framed and put it on his wall. Since then I have both sold and given my art to people who have admired it."
Here is an example of James's work, a painting he named: "Expanding Universe":
I loved the way he described his art: "My art can be better appreciated the longer you look at it. I call it "Cloud Watching". The longer you look the more shapes, faces and ideas you will see."
He's right :-)
