“Beginnings” – is spray paint on canvas by me, it measures 36″ x 36″

This piece was spray paint on canvas but due to its popularity I have made it a post card.

    Just beautiful. Reminds me of childhood. Thanks for sharing your work

  2. drterrysegal says:

    Your beautiful art is quite enchanting. Wishing you the best.

  3. Amazing what you are able to create with spray paint. Very cool

  4. groovy777 says:

    Very impressive! Nice piece!

  5. Bella Grace says:

    This is a really cool piece [cool peace]. It says a lot…standing still and pieces of you blowing away yet you still are what you are!

  6. T. D. Davis says:

    My other half is a sculptor and photographer; so I’m surrounded by beautiful art. Yours is fantastic!

  7. elinasicons says:

    Contrast full with balance😊

  8. i am a dandelion, i draw dandelions and yours beats mine hands down, very nice..

  9. Amazing to see what can be done with a spray can! The work is so powerful in its extreme simplicity – love it! Shall visit this website regularly.

  10. Outstanding work. You are indeed gifted.

  11. Jo says:

    This is gorgeous. I can’t believe someone could do that with just spray paint! Amazing!

  12. Love the serenity of the dandelion

  13. Mary Mageau says:

    Great website and art work.

  14. gruundehn says:

    Interesting picture, spray painted even makes it more so. You have a great deal of control over your medium to be able to get that level of detail with that medium. It should be interesting to see further pictures from you. I hope you find my future thoughts to be of interest.

  15. You have been blessed with an awesome and unique talent. Thank you for sharing it with the world. ❤

  16. .me. says:

    Love it , like memories dissipating in the breeze of autumn x

  17. You say: My work captures spaces of partial or full illumination between the perfect shadows on all sides of a person or an object.

    If you had been born in the Netherlands during the 17th Century you would have been a follower of Rembrandt

  18. I really like what you said above, “I am vehemently opposed to using art as a means to rely on overly-complex theories or ideas to prop up mediocre images. I believe that the quality of the actual work is what is paramount.” Here, here! :))

  19. Dr Iffi says:

    Very beautiful i must say ….. Awesome

  20. Edgar Swamp says:

    Absolutely brilliant!

  21. micalg says:

    Thanks Ray. Love your work, it is poetry on canvass.

  52. liztotton says:

    That is gorgeous. I cannot imagine how you did that with spray paint, but then I am an oil painter. 🙂

  53. That’s beautiful! I love art, but I never live anywhere long enough to hang any. Maybe someday. A girl can dream right.

  54. Jess says:

    this is BEAUTIFUL!

  55. This says to me, “come fly with me.”

  64. Andrea says:

    I’m looking forward to learning more about you!

  65. Stunning. Hopeful, reminiscent and plangent, all at once…I’d no idea this could be done with spray-paint, but I’m intrigued. Beautifully done.

  66. lynnetteok says:

    Hi Ray,

    Your artwork is incredible! It’s hard to believe that any of those pictures are done with spray paint. They resemble charcoal drawings…so much detail!

  67. Wonderful work, Ray; keep it up, keep smiling & laughing and be HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  68. stephendallen says:

    Wow! Beautiful and stunning imagery. I am so glad I found your site.

  69. What fun it will be to follow your blog.

  70. Man, I hope you get a showing here in Vancouver. Beautiful piece!

  72. Awesome piece of art here. 😀
    Keep on living life to the full! 😉

  73. Looking to encapsulate the sensory deluge of some special minds. Novice here. Anytime u might feel inspired to take on an NP … would welcome critiques 😉

  74. lesliepotts says:

    I like it! Very pretty

  75. lesliepotts says:

    I really like it!

  76. The spray paint on canvas is incredible!

  77. AngieG9 says:

    Lovely. It reminds me of a photo I took of my granddaughter bringing me a “pretty flower” while we were visiting a park one day.

  78. Beautiful! Keep up the good work!

  79. Food For The Journey says:

    “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes.” (John 3:8) How many times, as a child, have I been the “wind” while holding a very pregnant dandelion in my hand, just to delight in the beauty and wonder of birth. Your artwork speaks to me of life. There is conception in the mind of the artist and gestation in the work. When it is fully ripe for the world to see, the “wind blows where it wishes.” So happy, that one of those seeds took germination in me. I look forward to following that I might truly enjoy the spirit of life that is present in your work. Lovely. Absolutely, lovely! And I, like many others who commented, am absolutely blown-away that you did this with spray-paint!

  80. Busy.Girl.Shawn says:

    Love your art and your blog. :))

  81. DragonH3art says:

    Lovely artwork; best to you

  88. Jenn J says:

    Lovely talent. You are lovely!

  89. I love the perspective this one brings. I feel as if I’m crouching down, watching giant grey storm clouds roll in. Very cool.

  90. Julia Kovach says:

    An interesting piece of work. I like your creativity. I am going to look at some more of your work.

  95. You are here by inducted into the elite, exclusive club of people I envy, who can wield the paint brush, so for now I shall feel sorry for myself and eat worms.
    after which I shall enjoy your paintings. 🙂 Lovely

  96. 7feetnorth says:

    Beautiful! I can’t believe it’s spray paint!

  97. jujuskitchen says:

    Just beautiful and very unique – you should sell your art here in Ann Arbor where we have some of the best art shows in the country.

  98. Waaaaoooooowwww! 😀 (Joey will send this to his hoomin’s sister- she’s an art cwitic, curator, and stuffs! 😀 )

  100. lrdl3535 says:

    Reblogged this on lrdl3535 and commented:
    Nice post

  101. Oh my! I am a lover of art from way back and a designer specializing in 19th illustration adaptation application for 35 years, so when I say wow, what all my senses mean is spectacular.

  102. Art, language and learning are all so valuable to becoming human.

  103. I’m blown away (no pun intended!). I once spent ages photographing dandelions like this trying to get a shot exactly like your painting. I failed miserably.

  104. katzrambles says:

    I love your work and look forward to your future creations 🙂

  133. Jack Curtis says:

    “I breathed a song into the air…”

    We call them fairies, don’t catch them let them free to catch the breeze, you’ve ‘caught them’ in a beautiful way.

  146. Thank you for following my blog. Like the other people who have commented before me, I enjoyed looking at this piece. On the surface, it looks simple, but it has so many complex details at the same time. Keep up the wonderful work! 🙂

    Wow, I didn’t know you could get so much detail with spray paint. This is really nice.

  151. jedsonphoto says:

    Lovely picture-the sombre yet hopeful atmosphere. I wonder if maybe the dragonflies aren’t *landing* on the dandelion?

  152. clisawork says:

    I love everything you do – this is amazing!

  153. What a great shot…it looks like “dragonflies”. Good job. AJM

  167. JMPoland21van says:

    Your work is unbelievable!

  170. Sherry says:

    Ray, I am really taken by this dandelion fluff art. I have written about it, and this epitomizes one of my poems not to mention something that I shared with my Mother. She called it “wishing me Joy.”
    This brings back palpable memories. I should love to be able to own some version of this. Seriously. And it is also beautiful.

  171. You create a great sense of the wind blowing dandelion.
