Desiderata With Art
Painting - Hand-drawn Digital Painting
The Poem, Desiderata, was written in 1927 by the American Writer, Max Ehrmann. However, his excellent work was all but lost when a copy of it was found in 1959. However, it was believed at that time the work was from 1692 and was penned for the opening of St. Paulís Church in Baltimore.
Desiderata was read at Adlai Stevensonís funeral in 1965 and still attributed to the 1692 date. When the poem went widely public Ehrmannís family sued for compensation and won. However, through the years, the family failed to keep up their sole claim to Desiderata and it was put into the Public Domain by the 7th Court of Appeals in 1976. I have now used this wonderful work in this poster-like work in November 2012.
While the poem belongs to Public Domain, my artwork is copyright protected.
I am a digital artist who paints in the traditional sense: just with non-traditional tools. Every piece of art in my gallery is original; not scanned; not a photograph. Using only the computer mouse, I draw every line, add every bit of shading, highlights, blending, and refining to finish a piece. All of the art is started on a blank white page in Microsoft Paintbrush. The finishing process is done using Adobe Photoshop Elements.
The viewer is respectfully reminded all of my works are copyright protected and © appears on each piece together with my signature. Every piece is printed using only the finest of professional materials available, by a professional printing house. Rigorous quality control is employed to guarantee a satisfactory work of fine art.
Open copies are now available on Fine Art America with Prints on Demand.
