My Bio
Jeff Bain was born in 1965. He was lucky enough to have rich experiences in the diverse areas of western and northern Canada, and was born in an age of great promise where technology seemed to offer something to those willing to take the risk and dare to dream. His fascination with art began at an early age with the appreciation of the beauty of the world around him. He enjoys drawing people the most. He also composes music, but his acquaintances always say, “This is my friend, Jeff. He’s an artist.” Jeff Bain works in Graphite, Pen and Ink, Acrylics, Oils, Digital Media, and Photography

Who we are.

Who we are.

What is it that defines what an artist is? Who an artist is? What is an artist's portfolio? I used to sketch incessantly. I used to go through a sketchbook in a month. I still can at times in my life. I love the works of other artists, I like seeing how people can do amazing works in different styles. I like being surprised by things. I like to challenge myself, too. These things may or may not show in my online portfolio at all. I have boxes of paintings, both finished and unfinished, all seeking some strange perfection of a thing we call beauty. We seek to reconcile what appear to be incongruities in life in this respect, and explore as we go. I draw from life, I draw from photos, I draw from imagination. I love old movies, I love the colours of film and photos from the 60's. I can't judge a person from a small sample of what they do without knowing them as a person first. These were part of a series of sketches I did in my sketchbook, leading up towards a commissioned painting. I

Pleasant Surprise...

Pleasant Surprise...

Dear Deviants,  I got home yesterday after work and found a pleasant surprise in my inbox of 54 notifications. Normally that might mean someone has found my gallery and hit a bunch of likes or favourites, but in this case, 38 were favourites on my very recent Meditation on Science Fiction Art upload. Normally I take all this in stride, and just keep plugging away at things like I normally do, But yesterday I have to admit, that it felt good to see. I appreciate any that follow to see what I am working on currently, and really appreciate reaching out to new folks, too. We've been hit with snow where we are, and I have spent most afternoons a

Art appreciation.

Art appreciation.

  There are many things which bring people together in this world. One of them is an appreciation of Art, the arts, and literature. I have always loved books, and reading, and find that a well written book can be a great inspiration of the imagination. I have seen the same thing with music. Many artists work on multiple artistic disciplines. It rarely surprises me when I find an artist who also delves into the mysteries of life through music and words.  I had a lucky day yesterday. I recveived two lovely notes. One was a link to a review of art by a friend on site: https://baugelitt.eu/lart-et-la-beaute-clin-doeil-a-mes-amis-artistes/.  The
