"The more I paint, they more I like everything." - Basquiat

"Waiting" by Claire Bull

That quote is absolutely the truth... for me. The more I paint or create, the more I NEED TO paint and create. Art has always been a huge part of my life and it consumes you and depletes you and energizes you and rejuvenates you and then does it all again. Every day. Even when I am sleeping, I dream about painting.

This first work is digitally enhanced but is from a painting with acrylics on wood. It is called "Waiting". I am not sure what she is waiting for or why we are waiting, but she looks pretty relaxed and comfortable. It could be a sun umbrella or a rain umbrella. I am really enjoying Figurative abstracts lately. Just painting women or children with no face, hidden face or imaginary faces.

I have been working with computer art starting since back in the 1990s when everyone had dial-up and 14.4 kbps connection and the big honking computers that took up an entire desk. 
"Flight of Future Days" Fractal Art by Claire Bull
Available in sizes up to 11 x 14 on cards, prints, canvas, acrylic, metal surfaces, phone cases
Visit for originals and reproductions of my work

I had found KPT and Painter and got really into the creating buttons and bars and backgrounds for people who wanted websites on the "World Wide Web" and then got into digital art. I started making Fractals and working hard at the art, So much that I missed a bit of my "real" life for a few months and luckily realized that it was turning into an obsession.
It is now 24 years later. 
I have been an artist all of my life.
But a digital artist for almost 25 years. This was a fractal image I made in 2011 and since then I have been working on digital art and photo manipulations and painting programs with the computer. It is a huge learning curve! 
But I always have colour - you can count on that !!

I am painting some works with colour to heal my soul and brain and body. The winter pulls everything from us and drains us and depletes us. As beautiful as the glistening snow might be with the sun shining upon it, the wind and bitter cold are so debilitating to a lot of us. I find it extremely painful to move and am often in tears with the pain. It can come on in waves and all of a sudden and is crippling pain. 
So the art and the colour and the music are wonderful and it is a very happy day today creating some fun romantic Mother's Day items and new small works for my upcoming art show in June (Father's Day weekend! ) for the Coldwater Art Studio Tour. 
I am working on three commissions and lots of digital art. 
Hopefully you are managing to get through the cold too.
Thanks to all of you who have been purchasing my work through the winter months - it makes a huge difference when we are inside and in the studio all winter and not seeing anyone. It is WONDERFUL to receive that gratification and the lovely comments ;) 

Keep on FLYING IN THE SNOW and if you can't, you can WAIT for the FUTURE DAYS 

Thanks for hanging in there with my random blog posts. 

And for buying my work. It is wonderful to wake up in the morning and see the sales. 

Honestly. You people all buy at night. ??? 

I love it - thanks !

Missing the summer strolls along the marshy shorelines with my dog. Right now all of this is covered in snow and ice and tricky walking. Not safe. I can hear the frogs in my memory and feel the sun.

Happy New Year to everyone. I am going to just start putting my art on here and it is available through Daily Paintworks or my FASO websites. 

 I am pretty happy working on lots of smalls and it gives me variety and change in what I choose to create.

Just need to take the time to put them on here so for 2015 I will just keep uploading. ;)

VL Artist of the Day: VL Magazine Artist of the Day is Claire Bull

VL Artist of the Day: VL Magazine Artist of the Day is Claire Bull: © Red Umbrella By Claire Bull © The Path By Claire Bull © Color Blocks By Claire Bull "Creative expression and free...

Today was a good day. The entire month of April was good - On the COVER (and inside pages) of Visual Language Arts Magazine for APRILSpring is here after a LONG winter (although it gave us time to create and be in the studio it was really tough on the old bones and heating pads with fireplace and warm knitted sweaters were a necessity ) and YAY for getting some color back to this gray brown world.

We saw the sun about five times through the whole winter. The rest of the time we saw big flakes of Snow and gray. BUT. In the deep cold with the white covering everything, it is silent and magical and there is no dampness and it does not hurt and there are no bears or critters so your dog can run free and the fireplace and the knitting and the sun sparkling on the snow. It is really really nice and crisp and clean and white and beautiful.

and another BUT... I am glad it is done. Welcome Spring and warmth and color and new growth and rain and sun and flowers. The paintings in this "Artist of the Day" featured are my Umbrella painting - It is a Mix of Rain and Snow falling on the Red Umbrella - and "The Path" is from Honey Harbour at Georgian Bay area in Muskoka where we all enjoy our cottage time and those beautiful pink granite rocks and evergreen trees, and the "Color Blocks" is an abstract work from my imagination.

I am honoured to be part of this magazine and featured here among so many talented artists.

I have been an "artist" since I knew how to hold a crayon. When I am out for a walk all I see is the color and where the branches lie and how the light hits them and where is the moss and what colors in the moss and how the bark shadows hit the tree and how the shadows hit the ground. The new flowers and how they shine and the shades of green in the leaves and the pinks of the flower with the curve of the petals. I am trying to capture that. But it is impossible to capture so I try to interpret it and I am glad you are liking it.


Please tell your friends and family and other art people about me as I find it really difficult to do the shows and am trying to work in the studio and just put it here online. We ship worldwide and Canada Post and internet are huge for artists like me.

Grateful to you and thanks for supporting me.
