Tree of Souls by Rene Ury

Tree of Souls

I loved the new movie "Avatar," especially the dream-like world created (in 3-D!) by James Cameron and his special effects artists. This is my interpretation of the "Tree of Souls," a sacred tree that plays an important role in the film.

Hi Rene - Wow! Isn't this a fantastic new work. Inspired by the film but altogether original and your unique style. More please ... 5 ***** It has really helped me to try and think in terms of a narrative too - even if it may not come across so strong in the actual painting. Now goodness knows what you are thinking of for your next opus - I bet another surprise. Glad you liked the fishies - these really are a pleasure to paint - I will do some more simply because I relax and have fun painting them. Catch you soon, Hug Mike

Charleen - thank you so much. It's great to know a fellow fan of Avatar; we saw it in 3D, and we'll see it again in IMAX, which I've never done before. I did this tree over 3 rainy days, and painted it manic with motivation - you know the feeling. I'm coming to see your new one now.

Hi rene - I just love it - After I saw it 3D I too was so inspired - but not driven to create , driven to dream, I was manic with dreaming - I love how you put manic with motivation! Some young brother has seen it 3 times already!!! Cant wait to see what you create after your 2nd viewing! I just Love it!

Artist Statement
for Rene Ury
Rene UryI have always been passionate about art -- but am something of a "late bloomer." I took one drawing class and one watercolor class after my son left for college five years ago. Because school no longer appeals to me, I continue to learn from books, magazines, websites, art fairs and the examples of others (like you!). The need to create and share drives me on, and I cherish this site and all its participants.
