The Brush II by neosynthetic The Brush II by neosynthetic

man this is epic.
no wonder it's a DD.
it's like a statement on art itself.
the brush symbolic of the sun.
sun giving us light.
enlightenment.
light is knowledge.
'more light' said Goethe on his death bed, as he pled for more enLIGHTenment.
light helps up to see.
enhances our vision.
we seek vision.
the noun form of vision defined as the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be.
which leads one to visionary.
and that, my neo brethren, leads us to,...
you.

miss my babbling J?
heh.
yeah. few do.
be that as it may there have been a few here at DA that has shed some,...light,...with regards to my
artistic direction.
i thank you for your contribution.
:heart:

This painting to me is ironic because the last painting I did was with the same brush. I am in love with it and your art.

Loew & Cornelle, 2" wood handle and horse hair?
When I use them, they lose about 1/2" or so of their length due to the abuse on the textures. I love it. :D

i remember that you said that mastic was like tile glue. but do you buy it at the art store, or do you just go to a hardware store?

This is amazing. :worship:

I usually use a single brush for most of my own paintings, but none ever last more than one. The fact that yours' survived this long.... :o

Guess it deserved to be immortalised this way. It must have been the chosen one.

That's true! The horse-hair brushes usually endure well with me. I don't press much since I water alot of my work down alot. The nature of all of my paintings requires them to be painted flat, not upright or angled.
