Art is the expression of freewill. We are trying to understand the world around us. We are free to receive art and impose our will upon it. It's one of the few things where our Freewill is accepted universally. I make and see art in Galveston, Texas please join me.

A Turn Phrase

8" x 10" A turn of  phrase .jpg


“Turn of Phrase”

Words are as one with emotions, a turn of phrase is inspired communication.

Flowing energy out and then back again the twisting and turning of literary genius makes humanity immortal.

Phrases are energy that never ceases but only grows more rich with the passage of time.

Caporal forms wither, movements ebb and flow the spoken word lives held together with an intangible life force that defies deffiniton, escapes analyst and outlives its creator many times over.

Twisting and turning, gleaming and growing dark, rising to the highest, sinking to the lowest.

A turn of phrase, a force of ego cast in a shroud of intelligence and wisdom, beauty and simplicity last through the ages.

Survives political upheaval, civilizations, blood lines and even the very language that gave life to the idea.

Infinite expression made very real, and very present. Growing darkly, shimmering with lightness, undefinable beauty.

“Late for Dinner”


“Late For Dinner” You can call me anything you want, just don’t call me late for dinner!   Your in a rush, screaming through the streets.  No holds barred and Annie get your gun.  It’s one thing that you really want to be on time for.  Dinner!  It’s no good cold and life is too short for old food.  So get on it, put the pedal to the metal, burn rubber and eat my dust.  I’m not going to be late for dinner!


Late For Dinner is a fun little piece.  It’s a little off the beaten path and perhaps a bit out of sequence for the 3-D ribbon series.  A red metallic back ground and matching foreground using only the edge of the ribbon, shadows and highlights to give the body shape.   This piece has a lot of motion and emotion.  Even burnt edges and trailing flames to set it off.

I hope you enjoyed this piece and my commentary.  I sure had fun making it.

Warm regards,

James Armentor….  Get it?  Warm regards… Ha!!

“Purr” An Art Film


Warm eyes, warm fur, welcoming purr and a heart that is cold as ice.

She stalks without mercy, piercing stare malevolent, powerful jaws crushing, long fangs tearing. Crouching in grass, blending in background, waiting, stalking, pouncing.

Purring is releasing excess, defining emotion, an expression of killing machine.

Beauty is functional, directed and precise with intent.

Purr is disarming, soothing and deceiving.

Purr is inviting, Purr is delightful.

Purr is………

Evil Orchid


On first glance you realize this is no ordinary flower.. The pedals are not smooth. The center is not warm and inviting. Even though this can not be denied, one is drawn to it’s beauty. Could it be that you are ignorant of it’s danger? Could it be that the beauty over rides your sense of self preservation? Perhaps, it’s not beauty that draws you at all but temptation. Temptation to touch. Temptation to feel. Temptation to be one with it’s power. Watch out, don’t venture to close this flower is evil,,,,,,,, this flower is harsh,,,,,,,, this flower is deadly…… Evil orchid is reaching out, calling you inside, ready to devour….








Grater.  Pulling energy to center, harsh rough and greedy arms, snare, grasp, tug and pull.  There is a mouth to feed a hunger to satisfy a thirst to quench.  It must chew, grind, crush and pulverize to ingest.  Raspy legs reach down flowing energy up again to feed the never satisfied gluttony of its ravenous maw.

Grater is painted on sheetmetal with automotive paint.  Grater has a HOK sunset orange base coat, the design is laid out with white and orion silver.  I really wanted a rigid and disturbing design that also has a purpose and some flow.  The multi layered effect gives the piece great movement and the slightly unbalanced symmetry makes you look twice to really get your head around the image.

Thank you for your kind attention to my words and my art.  It really means a great deal to me and I am very honored to bring this work and commentary to you for your enjoyment.

Kind regards,

James Armentor

Vanguard For Art Freewill Youtube


Vanguard is watching over, staring and contemplating an action. To attack or defend always leaning toward the goal of the movement. Always on the front line and never leading from behind. Taking point and leading the movement. A stalwart defender and an feared aggressor. Is your vanguard on duty? Do you have an entity looking after you and your best interest? If not the time is now to employ the units, to dispatch the orders. Everyone needs a defender, and a champion.
“Vanguard” is produced on sheetmetal with automotive paint using a base coat clear coat system. I wanted the background to be defuse so a lot of pearlized paint was introduced into the cross hatch pattern. I knew their needed to be a striking warm color background and at the same time care needed to be taken to avoid clashes with the warm colored ribbon in the foreground also to be careful as to avoid overwhelming the subject. I wanted the foreground to be interesting but not overwhelming.

Thank you for taking the time to observe my art and read my words. Being able to share it with you means so very much to me.

Warm regards,

James Jordan Armentor

Warning: If you read this description to the end there may be serious implications for your state of mental health.

James Armentor is NOT a mental health professional and none of the statements in this description were meant to diagnose, treat or cure any known or unknown or known unknown or unknown unknown disease. Also the statements in this description have not been evaluated by the FDA, the CDC, the ABC, the AC/DC, the OMG, the LOL, the ROFL or the XYZPDQ Associates or the Area of the Main Land Shore in Sub Central South Houston area Heights and Associated Conglomerates LTD. Better known as the XYZPDQAAMLSSCSHAC LTD also known as my cat Bright Eyes.

*disclaimer* (Bright Eyes is actually a stray cat that really likes my wife more than be, but will let me feed her and sometimes pick her up, it’s strange because no one else around here can pick her up. But, I still don’t think she likes me that much. She gets really excited when my wife comes home, me not as much)

Now that you know that about this video would it not be a shame if you did not do your self and every living being a favor by sending this amazingly informative, entertaining, enlightening, life extending, superiorly fantastically neat-o, really nice and easy to listen to and watch video.
Not to mention a great use of anyone’s free time unless your driving, well that’s not considered free time really. Especially in Houston Texas where your really should pay close attention to what your are doing while driving. It’s dangerous enough without strange people watching the amazing Armentor Youtube Channel while driving. Therefore, Armentor Art and his amazing blog site Artfreewill do not recommend driving while watching this video especially in Houston Texas. However, we do strongly encourage looking at art while parked in a safe location with the windows rolled up and the doors locked incase some miscreant were to try and steal your device so he/she, heshe, shehe, LBGTQ or any other type of human (that has a complete right to identify as any type of sexual person they want. I mean who am I to say what they should do or identify as. I guess that means I’m not a Republican. I mean really? Who cares? If she is a he or it is a her and it wants to get married to her and he or she?) could watch my videos instead of you. That is how awesome these videos really are.

Armentor Art is actually in somewhat serious negotiations with an outstanding musical talent, who is local. Well, he is local to me. I don’t know where you are. Anyway, he is seriously trying to avoid me asking him to write a song about how great I am. I don’t think that is too much to ask do you? I think it would be easy, although I don’t play an instrument and I have never written a song. How hard could it be? Some songs just repeat the same line over and over. I’m thinking something like..

“ Yeah, yeah that Armentor guy is a really, really good guy his name is Armentor and how could you go wrong with that? And he airbrushes like a god. Yeah, yeah!!”

Like I said I’m not a musician but, If that incredibly talented guy happens to get all the way to the bottom of this description he should get mental help. After that he could use the aforementioned line in his song about how great I am. I would be willing to split the profits from the song with him 30%-him 70%-me after expenses, mine expenses not his. I could spend a good bit of money drinking coffee and coming up with more things for him to sing.

I’m starting to think that this description could just keep going and going. Really? Does any one screen these things? What kind of a place is this anyway?

It’s a great place with free expression of ideas and I for one am very thankful for it.

As always: No cute cats, Albert Einstein, flying pigs, Tesla, The illuminati or the New World Order were harmed making this video.

Peace and kind regards,

James Armentor

PS. Be sure to hit the like button and share and make a comment even if its not a nice one. My friend the aforementioned musical genius. Well, I think he’s a friend, he might not like me after I ask him AGAIN! to write a song about me. Anyway he was telling me there is a lot of competition in YouTube land. And if I anyone was to start liking me more than someone else that makes airbrush videos I might get paid to have some guy or girl or… ok were are NOT doing that again, my fingers are getting tired. See above for my complete or somewhat complete description of what a he or she could be.

Anyway, he said that if people like me more than some other dudes making airbrush videos I could get paid to have somebody put another video in front of my video that you may or may not be able to skip in 5 seconds.

Am I the only one who feels guilty if I hit that skip button? It must be a GEN X thing but, I feel like I gotta watch how some dude is living on the beach making millions of dollars with his computer while I’m running around like an idiot trying to feed myself. Then if I don’t watch him telling me how he was a idiot like me not long ago until he started making millions because he got off his ass and life is great now I’m some kind of dead beat freeloader for watching a video when I hit the skip button.

So, he says subscribe, share and like me and pretty soon I’ll be a guy sitting on a beach telling you how you could use a computer to make millions of dollars. Sounds fair to me. I get rich you get more amazingly incoherent commentary!


Man this thing is taking a long, long time to load. Its my fault really, If you must know I used to have Clear because I really, really, really despise our local cable company. Who shall not be named due to legal reasons.

Anyway, I’m hard headed and a bit strange. No really, I’m sure that if you have gotten all the way down to the bottom of this description of this uniquely fantastically amazing video you have developed a serious drinking problem by now and are thinking is this guy for real? I mean who just sits there and types mindless and disturbed things and post them with his name all over it?

Anyway, Sprint bought out Clear Internet and just shut it down.. How rude. No replacement just a letter saying how great it was to have me as a customer for a month while they dismantle my somewhat slow but unlimited wireless internet connection. So, I bought a smart phone and I am using it as a hot spot and probably microwaving myself to death to post rambling descriptions for incredibly awesome videos while my phone is trying to squeeze this info in to cyberspace.

Ok thats it, I’m worn out, you win.. . Good night and hit the like button, or the dislike button.

I don’t know how it works on YouTube but I heard once all publicity is good publicity. Logic being that if your a known looser its better than being a unknown looser. It kind of makes sense when you think about it I guess.

But, in this case a like is preferred. I think I’ve earned it. I never went to collage, but I think I can imagine what its like to write a term paper now. Wow! It’s really hard. I’m not a bad typer but a terrible speller. I can type things into Google and it comes back with nothing.

Ok, that’s really it. Please for give the typos but at least I’m not using any text short cuts. God those things annoy me…. PLS instead of please. Really, PLS does not impress anyone!! Why bother to ask please if you can’t even type the dam thing out for God’s sake.

Man, I’m glad I got that off my chest, weird,, it must have really been eating at me… I’m in construction, well at least until you guys hit the like button and make me rich. Anyways, sometime construction does not attract the sharpest minds. That’s not really fair because you do have to be smart to make it in construction. At least with all of your body parts still attached at the end of your career.

However, there are lots of places for the less than intelligent and motivated to have a job too. Makes sense, a scholar would not be content with busting concrete all day. Anyway I see business e-mails come across with text language it’s just low brow. I’m sure other industries have the same thing going on but come on now let’s at least try to be professional.

Ok, alright that’s really, really it this time. I better go before my wife has me committed. That’s what she gets for leaving me alone for too long. No wonder why she sometimes has that look, like, “Ok what kind of weird stuff have you been doing all day?” Poor woman. I can’t imagine how she can put up with it. It’s not like I mistreat her, in fact I treat her like a queen. She has to put up with this kind of thing all the time so she deserves it. It’s not like you guys and girls and (refer to the top for details) who can just turn off the computer, grab a drink and say, I’ll never get the 20 minutes I spent watching that guy reading his very strange description and not to mention the time I spent sharing and liking and commenting on his awesome video back. Nope, she’s gotta put up with me 24/7. What a woman!
