David Arms Gallery

An exciting day

I am branching out, literally. I am opening my own gallery in the most unlikely of places - a barn. As you round the bend into the town of historic Leiper's Fork, the first building to greet you is now one of two places where my original art can be viewed (the other being Atlanta).…

Shelly's Arm

Shelly’s Arm

Friday night my wife and I received one of those dreaded calls saying our oldest daughter had fallen and broken her arm. Suddenly we're in the emergency room. The next day she's in surgery. The next night we're heading home with life looking a little differently than it had just days before. As my daughter…

Free Desktop Wallpaper

As I have my cup of coffee this morning, I'm thinking about how nice it feels to offer something on my website for free. No purchase necessary. Simply free. Having been asked to use my artwork as desktop wallpaper for some time now, I'm glad to say we've adapted six paintings into high-quality images that…

Grace

Grace (a short video)

I'm sitting at the water's edge being lulled by the waves as they gracefully roll in, then gently slide away. There is such peace here in this continual rhythm. Mindlessly I pitch hands full of sand onto the perfectly smooth beach, making my own mess of things. Then I watch as the waves remove what…

Wings Of The Wind

Wings of the Wind

It is early morning, shortly after daybreak, and I am sitting at the edge of Lake Michigan on the beach. The air is quite chilly - I am snug in my sweatshirt. The clouds have rolled across the sky like a carpet. The wind is steady. The waves are large for a lake. But the…

Letters From 1934

Handwritten

There is not much I would rather receive than a handwritten note or letter. It is a gift in itself. (I'll admit, it's a bit ironic that I'm talking about "handwritten" as I type away on these little white plastic keys.) I fear it is something my children will not experience once my wife and…

Story Painting

Story

I am sitting here with my cup of coffee this morning pondering a very large painting that I just completed. It is only the second time in all these years of being an artist that I have painted a piece this large - 4' x 8' - which is still the largest size I have…

Blue Bluebird Eggs In A Nest

Miracle

Each spring my youngest daughter and I await eagerly for the first signs of bluebirds to appear inside their houses. When we see them busily going to and fro, we start peaking inside to see the nests being intricately assembled piece by piece - and seeing what materials they use is half the fun. Once…

The Making of a Painting – Part 3

So the concept was complete and it was time to paint. With most paintings I do, I actually stage the composition (except for the birds) and I photograph it. That photograph is what I then paint from. But in this case, the painting was not something I could stage. In my mind, it was lots…

David In The Process Of Painting: Concept And Inspiration

The Making of a Painting – Part 2

Before I begin a painting, there must be inspiration. And from that inspiration, a concept is revealed. For me, the concept is the "soul" of my painting. Since paint has become my voice, the painting itself is "what I have to say". An artist's inspiration could be beauty alone – maybe that of creation –…

Behind the Scenes – my first video “coffee break”
