Voyager - The Offering by DonatoArts
Voyager - The Offering
One of my favorites from a series of images related to the coast where the earth, sea, and sky all meet.  I grew up visiting the coast of Maine where the sea was a treacherous and powerful force.  I learned to respect the forces of nature...

Sorrow - Step by Step - ImagineFX
Next month I will have published in ImagineFX magazine an extensive Step-by-Step break down of how I approached 'Sorrow', a recent major work of art from me.  In addition, this Spring I will be hosting an online series of twelve lectures for artists who wish to pursue the further professional development of their art, aesthetics, and business acumen. These are not only lectures, but offer active dialog and discourse on the contemporary art marketplace.…

Dear Donato, I love your work and have been trying for months to find the pictures of three of your paintings for the ASOIAF Calendar. I lost count how many hours I spent trying every way of search! I only managed to crop them from the Calendar pic that shows the whole set but they are tiny and, apart from that, impossible to find on the net!

The pictures I'd dearly love to save for my files are:
1) North of the Wall (Direwolf killing a stag);
2) Stannis (at the Wall?);
3) Riverrun.

Could you please point me in the right direction? A link, anything!
Thank you so much, and may you and your outstanding artwork prosper.
