Martin Studios Beginnings

My name is Bryan, I have lived in Colorado since 1979, and most recently in Northern Colorado. I went to collage to major in Fine Art and 15 years later I have yet to finish. I do not know what life will bring, but I have been lucky enough to be able to do something I enjoy so much. Call it fate, or luck, but I was fortunate enough to be working with Interior Designers, at a picture framing and accessories business that provided wall space for designers to view new artwork. One day I decided to display my work, just to get some feed back on what I was doing. I started to get commissions from the designers that I was working with, and was doing well enough that I decided to attend the New York Arts Expo that following year. A couple of thousands of dollars later, and I was worried that maybe I was in over my head, but once again, my work was well received. This gave me such a great opportunity to meet new Interior Designers, and more importantly, I was exposed to the print market. WOW! I have done well with both markets, and have learned so much about the fine art business world , that I decided to form Martin Studios LLC. Which brings me to where I am today.

I am always working on new material, which is one of the reasons I have started this blog. I am hoping to add new images, and have a place where friends and business associates have a place to keep themselves updated on what new with my art.

Paint like Pollock

Jackson Pollock may not be understood by many people, but now you can paint like him right on your computer. I found this real fun web site that allows to "paint" like Pollock. Just drag your mouse across the screen, and left click to change color. Once you have finished your painting you can press the space bar to clear the screen and start over. I lost track of time playing with web site and didn't realize that I had been "painting" for over an hour. I'm not sure who had more fun, me or my kids.
