Every painting within this post was created by Malcolm T. Liepke. This talented man is considered one of the Finest Figurative Painters working today.
His loose, narrative style immediately became of supreme interest to me when I first began studying art in 2002. I could barely believe when learning he was a Primarily Self-Taught Artist.
Clearly, a spirit born to paint!
What I've come to expect from Malcolm's work is that through Mood, Atmosphere, Color, and Texture, He Speaks To Me.
He Emotionally Connects Me to whatever he's placed before me.
We all have that same universal need. To connect. To find and feel Love and Understanding. Some 8 years ago, I wanted so desperately to learn to convey these primal necessities.
In my continued effort to learn what I consider the truest techniques of producing great art, I read often and take an occasional workshop when Care-taking Duties don't interfere.
But I know in my heart, Brilliance is only achieved through constant practice. It's Truly A Lifelong Process.
While Listening Recently to Kelly Berkey express her passion for learning..for wanting to take her artwork to the next level, I've truly been inspired. Suddenly Something Has Stirred In My Soul that's difficult to explain.
I'm sincerely wanting to get serious again. Feeling so worn out from The Compromise. I want to say something meaningful and worthwhile with my art. Reach inside myself and pull out my own artistic-truth.
Clearly Friends I'm feeling unfulfilled today. It's difficult to express through words. Because Actually there are no words. So Maybe I just need to paint them instead.
Love & Sunshine To Anyone Who Cared Enough to Listen Today!
