My Art Rage Works, so far...

waiting for a train

...And this one I did after I had purchased the full ART RAGE studio!  I called this one 'sister'.

It's just so awesome, I can't tell you, though I'll try:

I don't have messy paintbrushes, worktop, clothing and hands (sometimes face!) to clean up after!


Mistakes are easily erasable and don't damage the surface of the 'canvas'!

Wow, you just can't go wrong with this!

And, if anyone wants to purchase a print, then, awesome!  There are many ways to 'skin that cat'!

I have a 'shop' at zazzle.com where you are more than welcome to browse my store and see the prints, among other goods, that are available for purchase with shipping anywhere in the World!

Yes, I'm excited and totally thrilled!  It's like I've woken up in a new World!  Awesome!

big, little big world within

This is a blank 'canvas' that I used the tube paint to create my flowery design...

and the .jpg below is after I had taken the palette knife to the paint...

I then did a quick back-ground to the design and that's the result, which I shall be able to use at zazzle.com to create designs on materials, ceramics and other consumer goods for sale there!

My latest 'painting' using my Art Rage app on my Samsung Tab E
Just so glad to wake up today and realise it wasn't all a practical joke for April Fool's Day!
I'm so happy, because now this paranoid schizophrenic can have all my Friends around (who've been smoking for years and years! and haven't made the bad news!) and not get all terrified that an Authority will come around and freak me out further!
I don't smoke it, and haven't been tempted to, even though it's now legal, but, I sure would like to try out the Cannabis Oil for health reasons! You don't get high with the oils, because the THC or whatever it's called isn't present!
So, here's to a healthy nation, granted by the one some despise so much, because he had to sign it off, but, some one had to do it!
And I'm glad it's done!
Awesome - now all those who have done clandestine things to get some weed, for whatever reason - be it health or entertainment, well, now THE WEED IS FREED!
If you're hunting for seeds, just buy some Parrot food - there's tonnes of cannabis seeds in the packets! I used to toss my Parrot's left overs into the garden, and whoopee, one took seed and before I knew it, the garden service had tended to it and it grew proudly until my paranoia couldn't take it anymore and I reluctantly had it removed! Gees, grows fast, I tell you!
In my life I've managed to sit under two formidably huge towering dagga trees! Wow!
I'm now in a movement to think positively for the Amazon forest revival to plant some marijuana seeds for us to replenish our oxygen supplies - I mean, who in their right mind is going to go chopping down the beautiful trees, which they are! Just like any other trees!
And they're fantastic for other reasons, where one does chop and so on: clothing, ropes, etc.
Wonderful for those industrious people who have land to plant it!
Rightio, I've given you all food for thought!
Enjoy the painting!
PS Only legal to grow and smoke in your own home, so please try to keep the laws as best you can!

'kissing kupels' by raine carosin

Inspired by the Toluna Team asking us to write a story starting with:

"It started with a kiss..."

Kollateral Kormussels

This was inspired by the bomb dropped the other day and about collateral damage...


me doodling 'constructively'...  LOL!

"birdsong 1"

I used this one at my store (http://www.zazzle.com/rainec) to create some fabric and a tote bag.

'thursty dream'

I called this one 'snot'...  I know it's not polite, but it was a moody thing...

I called this on 're-union ...

This one I called "heat"

This one is called "eye-light addiction" which was an experiment by me to see if I could capture a bit of light and incorporate the eye iris...

Yup, you guessed it:  a pic called 'cat'...

"Perky Rose"...  there's a mistake there where I coloured some of the rose petals green instead of sticking with the pink and lilac...  I'll fix it soon enough...


'perky rose'

'rest 'o rant'


'bar stool'




evawooshun by raine carosin

it's most odd, but I was inspired to do this while I was watching us people make fools of ourselves on a video series channel called something like 'you wouldn't believe this if it wasn't filmed'.

Well, not all of the clips contained funny bits, so there were some videos where i just laughed and laughed.  

The one which inspired me was of the blowing up of a dam wall.  A controlled set of explosions, and when I saw the wave, I was impressed at how my imagination brought up my fear of being caught up in a wave so big, it wouldn't fit on a canvas, so to speak.  No, I'm lying, well, I'm trying to tell the truth, but it was also at the same time a shot of the wave building up that got me to take action and do a virtual painting.

What a relief it is to not have to do anything strenuous in getting my 'vision' down.  A literal WALL OF WATER collapsing...  It is frightening.

I love that I could make my picture bigger so that I could do the ship in an easier fashion than trying to paint in a miniature fashion.  Anyways, I loved painting this pic and love the colours...  I really like how my ship looks!  At first I painted it facing the wrong way.  Then I remembered something from the movie THE SQUALL or something like that.  Well, I hope you like it, too!
