Featured Art works by Miles Eadiewww.mileseadieabstractart.com Live Music by Atrea Corp www.astreacorp.com Miles Eadie is a self-taught abstract painter. He started painting in June of 2014, after developing tendinitis in both hands. Music was my main craft, but when he could no longer perform, he began to express myself with paint. His fluid painting methods, using a “pouring” technique of acrylic paint, started out as experiments of curiosity and led to results of creativity. He produces abstract landscapes, seascapes, dreamscapes and figures. His work is inspired by designs, patterns and themes found in nature. The purpose of each piece is not only to catch and please the eye from a distance, but also up-close. His paintings are meant to intrigue the mind, touch the heart and inspire the soul of the viewer. Refreshments by Table 16.
