WhiteOak's Zazzle Gallery

Welcome to my world of art at Zazzle.
The link to my Zazzle Gallery is: WhiteOak50* Gallery My inspiration for art has always been Nature, without a doubt!
I find so much beauty in the world that I do all forms of art to try and capture the beauty so others can enjoy it as well.
Because I work with so many different forms of art, is the reason why I call myself a Multimedia Artist.
Finding ways to promote your art considering there are millions of other artist also doing the same thing is a little challenging, but rewarding also. In my case I just keep trying to place my artwork where people will see it and like others hope for the best.
Nature Pictures-A Short Journey into my world of Photography-

I am really a very young rookie when it comes to taking photo's. I believe I started taking pictures this year with my garden and flowers. It was just two weeks ago, that my husband and I went on a mini vacation and I decided to take my camera and take some pictures. During our mini vacation, I had my laptop with me and my husband taught me how to use a program that he had installed on my computer a long time ago. During our weekend it was real rainy and over casted but we decided to go explore anyway, plus we both love the rain! Because of it being so over casted, some of the pictures came out real dark, so I corrected them with this new computer program that my husband taught me how to work.

My Pagan Graphic Arts -

I have been doing art on the computer for just about 3 years now. My husband is the one who introduced me to it and he has been doing it for over 10 years. I going to post of his work on below.It is almost funny to see some of my artwork today compare to when I first started doing graphic art. It is not the easiest form of art to do, but oh, my goodness you can make beautiful pictures. I still do a fast sketch of some of my pictures before I create them on the computer sometimes. Plus, I adore sketching!

Food for thought

Ever since I was a very young child, I have been involved with some form of art. Writing, drawing, sketching, ink and so many other things, I have learned for me that art is very therapeutic.Through my art I can express myself of things that I would normally keep locked inside. I have found that many artist feel the same way. I believe if I ever wanted to be something other then what I already am, it would be an Art Teacher working with people to help them release some internal emotions they may keep bottled up.
Art truly is a way of Self-Expression!
