The SoloistThe Soloist
Damon-Armand Heslington Denys

This work conveys an image of impressive elevation. The woman stands on an elegant, spotlessly polished marble balcony overlooking a richly detailed city far below. Her glance is firm, and her posture and composure indicate a fundamental comfort with being present at such heights. Her position may also be a statement regarding her musical talent an...

Catching DewdropsCatching Dewdrops
Damon-Armand Heslington Denys

Despite the activity, her dress, and the flowers in her hair, catching these dewdrops is clearly not a light or half-hearted undertaking.  Look at her eyes.  This painting embodies the concentration and seriousness that one can and should bring to any activity of ones choosing, whether it's running a railroad or making hamburgers. ...

The Gods of MarsThe Gods of Mars
Michael Whelan

This is a striking piece of art from well known fantasy artist Michael Whelan.  He did this piece as a book cover for 'The Gods Of Mars'.  The image shows a naked man surrounded by alien creatures with angry postures.  Yet even in this alien environment, the man is in control of the situation, as shown by fact that he's driving a sword through one ...

The Weight of the World: Atlas in a New AgeThe Weight of the World: Atlas in a New Age
Damon-Armand Heslington Denys

A businessman reclines confidently on a windowsill and manipulates a toy-sized globe in his hand with an almost carefree ease. This is a demonstration of the empowering effects of technological progress on the Atlases of the world; no longer must they strain themselves to their limits in order to wield the colossal power that maintains the world in...

Invariance and EnlightenmentInvariance and Enlightenment
Jonathon Earl Bowser

I like the light and also the composition with the balance between the woman and her statue and the diagonal lines of light coming in from the upper left against the lines of her and her statue. The woman and the statue, being almost identical but seemingly from different times, create a strange timelessness. ... (See the whole comment)

Oil Painting 22Oil Painting 22
Alexei L. Antonov

The utilization of color in this work is exquisite. The various shades of red, manifested by the pomegranate, the liquor bottle, the tablecloth, and the background are juxtaposed with green from the grapes and the melon. This painting is replete with detailed variety, also featuring two roses and a decorated vase. ... (See the whole comment)

BB&T, Est. 1872BB&T, Est. 1872
Quent Cordair

In this painting is a beautiful ultramodern skyscraper in the middle of farmland a small distance from a farm.  It's the setting and placement of the office building that makes this painting so utopian, I think.  Where's the infrastructure?  How do the people get to work?  Well, maybe they fly there or teleport there, or something, but wouldn't it ...

An Awakening MindAn Awakening Mind
Damon-Armand Heslington Denys

A firm young woman reclines on a hillside with a book in hand. With determined and focused eyes, she surveys the scenery around her, likely taking a moment to deliberate over the contents of what she has read (as she has her fingers in the pages of the book, intending to return shortly to the undertaking). She is alone with her thoughts and elevate... (See the whole comment)

The LacemakerThe Lacemaker
Johannes Vermeer

This painting depicts a woman diligently at work on her craft. Her eyes are entirely focused on the work of her hands, ensuring precision in an age not yet automated. Her elaborate hairdo and manner of dress suggest a general orderly disposition and a desire to bring structure to her surroundings. The accurate depictions of her fingers in action as...

Basic ShelterBasic Shelter
Quent Cordair

This painting, especially when integrated with its title, is a portrayal of the dignity that befits a rational creator man. The gleaming white villa with ornate gardens surrounding it is referred to as "basic shelter," just the beginning of the standard of living that the productive man should aspire to and expect. The glance at this expansive and ... (See the whole comment)

In the construction of a massive bridge, two of the engineers stand atop one of the supports, looking over the building process in its entire expanse. This painting presents an impression of elevation and upward expansion, as well as a domineering glance onto the water and the landscape, which, in the distance, is dotted by further noble products o...

Young BuilderYoung Builder
Bryan Larsen

Bryan Larsen’s “Young Builder” is my favorite painting out of his collection thus far.  It conveys the hope for the future that I see in the child’s inquisitive nature.  The greatest potential for progress in our society is greatest in the minds of the children that we prepare for the future.  The simple nuances of this painting are seen in the ref...

Norman Rockwell

Norman Rockwell, a realist painter from before the rise of the modernist painters, painted this most striking piece of comical irony as his response to the rise of the modernist painters such as Jackson Pollack and Pablo Picasso.  This work, painstakingly real shows within it a modernist paint splattering and a man, who no doubt, like most of his t...

A father and son stand in the foreground, observing intently the launch of a rocket. The flames emitted from the spacecraft are depicted in their full brilliance, while the little boy holds his own model spacecraft close to him. The child evidently enjoys a rational parent who himself is fascinated with the progress of man and encourages his son to... (See the whole comment)

Atlas Does Not ShrugAtlas Does Not Shrug

This work is a demonstration of the resilience that should rightly characterize America's response to terrorism. Atlas is in the foreground, holding up, not the world, but a gigantic American flag, indicating the eternal vigilance and effort required to sustain a free society. The rising bald eagle glances at Atlas with a sharp supervision; in all ... (See the whole comment)

She is evidently an expert flyer, not requiring landing strips to travel where she will. Larsen provides a two principal images of strength, the sleek, consistent te... (See the whole comment)

A couple stands atop a balcony in a seaside town with an architectural flair quite unlike anything encountered in traditional "exotic cultures." The purity of the white structures is enhanced by the geometric elegance of their design and the vibrant blue domes on top.

An F-16 fighter jet is projected outward, in the direction of the viewer, flying away from a gigantic bald eagle draped in the American Flag. "Sleeping Giant Awakens" had portrayed the same eagle, a symbol of the resilient American spirit, rise from the rubble of 9/11.
