I did this for the cover of the October edition of About Magazine and illustrated the story related it.  They also did a huge article about me and my work with lots of great photos.  I'm having a good month.
Two days off in a row.  Let's push some color and see where it goes.
It sucks wanting to paint the whole time I'm at work but being so drained when I get off I pass out as soon as I get home.
Hello Everyone.  You probably don't remember me.  I haven't been on here in almost two years.  Haven't painted in nearly two years as well.  I think I'm finally waking up and ready to start posting again.  Working on several paintings at the moment and posted the first of which just now.  My hiatus has changed my style and I look forward to where it takes me.  I hope to reconnect with my old friends on here and make some new ones.

Peace Love and Groovy Colors to you all.
  • Listening to: my heartbeat
  • Reading: too deep into everything
  • Watching: my future match my past


Arum1966's Profile Picture
Mark Masters
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I paint in acrylics, usually on 24"x48" or 48"x48" panels. I paint as if nobody but me will ever see my art and don't ever plan a painting, let it evolve as I work. I consider myself a figurative expressionist artist who paints emotion with contrasting color and texture.

Current Residence: Russellville Arkansas
Favourite genre of music: 80s Rock, Classical, Techno
Favourite style of art: Expressionism
Operating System: Google Chrome
