Silas is a great teacher. He went over the basics in a clear and simple way.
Lori was great. She was so organized and inspiring. She has a love for art and projects this on her students. I learned so many new and exciting about drawing.

Hey Glen (Silas) here. Welcome to my Orble Art School and Meet Up Bio!

I have been an art student since as long as I can remember! I began drawing inspired by my favorite cartoons. I loved the meditative quality of drawing and the freedom to create whatever I wanted. I grew and grew and began to create more and more realism! Art is an expression of inner self and total freedom. It's very tranquil and peaceful.

I drew for many years and only began painting in high school and college simply because the classes required it. For some reason I didn't think I'd like painting, boy was I wrong.

In recent years my love for art and fashion have collided and I've become increasingly fascinated with clothing Alteration and design!

Come along on this journey with me in creative growth!

Title or Location: Fireflies
My artform is Chinese Brush Painting. Here I am using all the skills and tools (Chinese ink and pigment on Xuan paper) that I would use in traditional work, but taking it in a more abstract direction. I recall a magical evening many years ago when I stopped the car with my children to marvel at an entire field of fireflies. Today, when we fog our yards to kill mosquitos, it also destroys all those sweet fireflies, butterflies, bees, etc.

Title or Location: ?Out Of The Mist?
This original painting is a 9X12, oil over acrylic on a cradled birch wood panel with sides painted. She comes from the mist with stealth and grace. She is stepping out of the painting, bridging the gap between what is just existance and what is art. I have two words to explain my inspiration for this piece, ?Stay strong? She, this creature represents my own struggle to move forward and come out of the fog of my own tumultuous past. This beautiful animal symbolizes courage and determ

Title or Location: Moon rise at the sight of the ocean
Moon is a symbol of Emotion . Ocean is a symbol of power . On a full moon day Moon seems to come down closer to the ocean and on the other hand Ocean seems to raised up to the sky to reach the moon. When this happens the sight is incredible resembling the beauty of Life. I tried to put the same into my artwork with acrylics paints on canvas.

Title or Location: Heath Ledger - Joker
The Joker was created by myself( Federico Portalupi )and my fellow artist and friend Rick Kadets in our own style of comic realism. We are both successful artists in our own respective styles and make a living from it, and we wanted to elevate our work by coming together on larger size paintings and challenging our creative process. Everything from design, concept, panel, frame etc was built by us. We are proud of this piece of art and look forward to creating many more.

Title or Location: Sunset at Boukari Harbour, Corfu
I started painting 6 years ago after attending a paint night at a local bar (just for fun) in Vancouver, Canada, where I had been living. I was addicted! Youtube videos have been a great way to learn and grow. The journey has been frustrating at times but it has also become my stress relieving activity.I visited Corfu at the beginning of June and loved the sunsets at this location in the South East of the Island. When I look at skies, clouds , water etc I am always imagining how to paint them

Title or Location: He sees me.
This was a new experience. I knew I needed to be more efficient at creating. So I prayed and with all my art work being are a form of praise and worship, each time I sat to paint, time disappeared. Yet I finished it quicker than any other piece. Once this was done I asked myselfhow'd you do that? I didn't, He did!

Title or Location: Peony
Inspiration for this was just flipping through some pictures I took of my garden earlier in the season. I wish the peonies bloomed longer! This painting was done using Chinese colors and brushes on black shuen paper.

Title or Location:
Part of an unreal series from the land of dead birds exploring human extinction. The Unreal series are inspired by the bleak landscapes of Western Australia. In this instance the Blackwood River in Nannup. A poet friend who doesn't want to be named sends me photos she thinks would form a perfect backdrop for the land of dead birds. The birds themselves are Frankenstein compositions all framed by Art Nouveau/Lovecraftian inspired frames. The land of deadbirds is part of a wider exploration of war
