    My Foray into Sculptures and Oil Paintings

    After I retired, I went passionately into learning and doing visual arts. I went first into sculptures and then I changed to doing oil paintings.

    Subsequently I got increasingly physically clumsy due to a long-term medical problem. I changed again to take up writing and publishing.

    I would like to show some of my artworks. Unfortunately I cannot find an icon to show the images in my computer.

    Instead, this is my art website. One Sun Art Studio

    Those are very impressive paintings, John. You're very talented. Sorry to hear of your medical condition, to lose such an ability is a shame. Still, writing can be very challenging and a wonderful way to express your artistic nature. So glad you've shown us your wonderful artwork.

    Thanks Gumby.

    There is some similarity between my artwork and my writings. I go for reality and try to say something through them. Perhaps these have to do with my personality and with my background. My career was engineering before I retired. I changed from engineering as I cannot use it to express my feelings.

    There is much truth in what you're saying. I do believe that is the case most times, John. Our personality comes through in our artwork as well as our writings.

    "Man's Descent" is beautiful. Such a serene creation. My hat off to you, sir.

    Hi John, this has always been my favorite of your sculptures, along with "Caged".
