Brushworks by Monte
Welcome to my Blog. I'm a self taught South Florida Landscape artist, working primarily with acrylics ... I also like to experiment with abstract renderings of Still Life, Surrealistic Pop Art Portraits, Nudes & Fiqures. I created this blog to showcase my work and to share my journey as an artist with others. My work is best described as Abstract and Representational where reality and illusion merge into a single element of pure expression. As we grow older we tend to lose the magic of discovery and the joy of creative play. I hope to express the beauty of God's creation with my brush and paints. Surely, the finest teachers of creativity, persistence, and unconditional love, are children. Painting is my way of getting back in touch with that inner child and help with my own personal recovery.

We create your cartoon, funny, wedding and celebrity caricatures from photo digitally, so as to give you faster and clean output and the best part is these caricatures are very much affordable to all.
