Welcome to the Color Brown Studio
Where the art of Seeing is another way
Waking up can be a challenge
and managing to stay awake can be a daunting task.
The Artworks of Anthony H. Brown

Test Facts & Fiction
An apple is drawn to appear fresh without blemishes, yet its skin is painted orange. A strip of scotch tape is used to hold down tarp that comes loose when a strong wind blows
My artwork depicts a segment of life often thought to be overlooked. These overlooked facets of life expose how we arrange our lives and how we neglect that what is obvious about our lives.
Art & Healing
Creativity is a freeing and transformative process that helps with controlling negative thoughts and actions. We benefit physically and psychologically from allowing creativity to help heal us. Rather the question is how do we accomplish healing? How do we channel creative energy in this way? How do we turn artistic actions into healing properties? The answer is being willing to make self-awareness a goal.
Painting & Drawing
I have looked into the eyes and at the hands of people who would not consider themselves an artist, and have seen them create breathtaking works of art.
I have witness originality being shaped by the hands of those new to the use of brushes, paints, and pencils and have experienced the pouring out of creativity.
I have witness people who knew nothing about the texture of the paper or about what textures best give drawings and paintings that extra appeal.
Throughout, everyday people discover healing powers in the use of artist tools to bring forth self-awareness and a new appreciation for art’s healing powers.
Color & Form
Some properties work together while others will never work together.
With all things being equal what is Color? Is color a property that works together to help us accept reality? Color does help us identify a form, but what is a form? Is a form a property of color or is the color of a form a property of something real?
The fact might be that color is subjective. A form also is subjective. Color increases the likelihood that a form exists. Forms exist without color, but it is imaginative.
A black and white image is familiar, but a color image of the same image is also familiar? Again subjective. Is a form of an image or the color of an image that make it real?
“Let’s go invent tomorrow rather than worrying about what happened yesterday.”
What to expect to see
The Color Brown Studio started in the mid-1990’s as an online gallery; however, today it represents a brand that features artworks produced by the artist and scholar Dr. Anthony H. Brown, Ph.D. In his own words, Anthony states that he “creates representational painting and drawings”. He states that his love for creating art comes from the original purpose of art, which was when it was about addressing complex events.
That is, visual artworks once held a strong connection between the artist telling a story and forming visual ways to speak a language. These painting, now known as “Fine Art“, told stories about past and present eras. They were not just ornamental objects on walls in private homes, but rather complimentary attributes of the spoken word. As a result of his Bachelors from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and Masters from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), and other vast motivators, Anthony enjoys discovering the many images he sees in the nature of human interaction. He states that he dabbles in writing poetry, short stories and that he is a “do it yourself” (DIY) type of person.
Now that he has completed a Doctorate in Philosophy with a focus in industrial and organizational psychology from Walden University, he enjoys researching about how a person’s perceptions change when their life experiences change. He states that what intrigues him about added psychology with art is, he loves producing artworks that show how images evolve from capturing the varying dynamics within words or ideas to become a finished painting or drawing. That is, his painting and drawing reflect an every changing social and cultural society. His artwork combines art history and the psychology of interpreting expression to create a visual voice so to indulge others to comprehend through art; his visual experiences. Anthony is interested in expanding his gallery into an online marketplace.
Utilizing contemporary technology he purchased a commercial grade large format HP printer, so to offer on demand museum quality Giclee prints of his original artworks. The new aim of the Color Brown Studio is to produce artworks representative of the many ways we interact day-to-day, how we relate to nature, and how we form relationships within the world we live in, and that is through social media on the internet. Now that online marketing is accessible Anthony added the HP DesignJet Z3200 Photo Printer as an addition, yet professional tool so to leverage his reproduction processes.
