Hello Art Lovers!
Romaine here! I finally found a venue that I can share my passion. Come with me as I grow. Some of you been with me since I discovered or shall I say RE-discovered my passion of Art. I believe this time it found me and pulled me back to where I actually belong.
I've always been interested in anything artistic, from Michael Angelo to Vincent Van Gogh, who is my most favorite artist. I also love writing but decided to make Art a priority, apparently Art decided to make me it's priority as well. I started drawing and painting as a youngster but as I got older I suppressed it and decided to become a teen-ager instead and forgot about my love until right after high-school. I wanted to go to Pratt Institute but I was told that it was TOO expensive to attend. Boy was I bummed out about it! So again, Art was suppressed and was only let out in a myriad of different emotions as a way to release them. I did live in New York for a bit just to get the feel of it and was able to visit The Museum of Modern Art...So the passion never let me go, no matter what I did, I just let obstacles get in my way.
I recently had decided to go to University of Phoenix for Web Design and Graphics, had a heart attack and yet again...another set back. After getting better and recovering (still) I decided to finish and I got my degree. Getting the degree unlocked all that was suppressed and it poured out like a faucet. My muse, which is known as 'The BaldHeadChic Collection' Showed itself upon purchase of an Ipad and downloading apps for Art. For me, it was perfect and there wasn't a mess to clean up. TheBaldHeadChics exist because there is such a fixation of appearance from today's world. So every night, I had painted at least 3 to 4 ladies. My best friend died of Cancer, so I also feel the ladies were created because of her. I remember It took a long time to free her of her lovely colored scarves and wigs before she left us. I also thought of women who have Alopecia, who are bald and thought about Art for them. I also incorporate men as well.
The uniqueness about my artwork is that it's all created and painted digitally on a IPad using different ART apps and incorporating graphics into the artwork. None of these pieces are done physically. That means no mess and clean up for me! I do paint on physical canvas, but for now this is new and creative for me. I'm sure that there will be other works, but for now? I am pouring out what wants to come out. I hope you enjoy them as much as I love creating them.
