  • Rainbow Brush III




    For the last two years, the Rainbow Brush has striven to highlight issues of great social importance, celebrating the downtrodden in response to political and legislative attempts to ostracize them from our great melting pot. Miniaturists from across the globe have taken the opportunity to use the power of art to shine their light on these issues.
    In 2015, there was a celebration of the LGBTQ community, in response to the “Religious Freedom” bill. It was a celebration of the inclusivity of the Gamer/Painter subculture, and a statement re-affirming how important we all feel it is that you can come from all walks of life and find friends in this uniquely welcoming band of misfits and social butterflies alike.

    Last year, artists from every political spectrum came together to highlight the plight of Muslims, and to celebrate the many cultures in their identity; not to mention their vast contributions to both science and the arts.

    This year, we want to shift the focus to an issue of perhaps even greater import. The focus of this year’s Rainbow Brush is an issue that affects us all. This year, we’ll be focusing on the environment.


    I’m sure you’re all aware of the overwhelming body of evidence regarding the fact of climate change that is being ignored wholesale by the people empowered to halt it. According to scientific consensus, there is precious little time to save our pale blue dot, and with every step taken to line the pockets of these folks is a step away from a world habitable by our children’s children.


    With that in mind, the theme of celebrating and protecting the environment is open to broad interpretation. Depicting scenes from popular fiction, such as the the scene from Lord of the Rings where the ents go to war to defeat the corruption and environmental destruction of Isengard. Maybe a post-apocalypse, teeming with irradiated life in the rubble of our hubris? On the flip side, maybe a celebration of nature, a lush ecosystem, teeming with endangered species, or perhaps a figure engaged in environmental protest or conservation? Sculptors and and designers have provided us with a dazzling array of fantastic beasts and anthropomorphs. The choices are nearly endless!
    As always, this will be an epic undertaking! Celebrating (or mourning, if that is more your flavor) something as all encompassing as our environment should be as spectacular as our world itself. I wholeheartedly welcome anyone who wants to offer help by contributing ideas, prize support of simply sharing this event across their social media feeds.

              Not at present. I would hope to have the next one a month after Rainbow Brush but nothing concrete yet. Things kind of took a back seat with the kickstarter. Lot of site updating I want to do to when I can find the time

                    I believe so. Your post apocalypse suggestion gave me some ideas, I think I'm going to roll with that

                            I just realized I might have something ready for this, though I make no promises as I'm notorious for missing contest deadlines.

                              My photo is terrible, but I got something done, and into the gallery. That's two years in a row! I also managed to get something done that I've wanted to paint for a while, so that's a bonus!
