My art is an expression of my heart and soul; a search for “Truth” and an admiration for nature and life. I want my art to be purposeful , free and inspiring.
The will to continue with my art comes from the Loving Heavenly Voice that tells me “keep up with your art”. The driving force in my fingers to hold the brush and create original art is a gift of “True Love” from my family. As I progress on the path of an artistic pilgrim, I seek to engage viewers into an artistic consciousness to love and respect Mother Earth . – Pushpa Sunder Mehta, M.D
I like to do series. I wanted to show wrinkles, age, shadows, non-traditional portraits and make them interesting, at least to me. Originally it was just a self-portrait, and then it was only going to be old people, but I am doing young people as well. I like drawing other artists.
One artist remarked that the reason why artists do self-portraits is because the model is free, available, and doesn’t mind if liberties are taken with the image. That is good because I’d rather draw character, and have people like the image of a smooch, and the colors – it’s different, it shows fun and life.These are all 14 x 17 on Bristol with ink and colored pencil. I have sold several of them ($100) and that is, I think, a deal. ~Leslie Aguillard

Chris Schranck is a Colorado artist living in Denver. He has been selling his art work since 1999 and has shown his art work all across the United States. He earned his B.A. in art with an emphasis in ceramics and sculpture at Western State college in 1994 and then in 1999 continued his studies with an emphasis in painting and drawing at Metropolitan State College. Chris does his art work out of his studio at Neo Art Studios in Denver where he is the founder and manager. He gets most of his inspiration from life experiences, traveling, nature and other artists. Finding found objects and making them a part of the composition is a large part of his work. Observing nature and what nature does to manmade objects is a lot of what goes into the focus of his paintings. You will also see a great deal of texture and contrast. Not only is his art work a great composition from a distance, but get up close and see the detail.
