Feeling Nautical

This ACEO appeared.... the clouds formed, the boat appeared and quickly sailed away. I think I'll do this in a much larger format.
And being in a beach-y mood I made a Google Chrome theme to share:


Happy Sailing!

One of the nicest things about being part of the art community is the opportunity to share artwork with other artists. Over the years I have participated in many artist swaps and trades and I thought I would share some of my friends art work with you. On this wall in my house I have a beautiful watercolor by Laurie Hess of the garden fence and right below it my new piece - a glicee print by Diane Talmage of achild playing at the beach.

The top watercolor is by Hudson artist Hilary Sheeter. The subject is a historic home in Hudson. The painting below it was done but Ann Kah. The collection of buildings is nearly abstract in design.

Miniature Show

It's  that time of year again - The Miniature Show at the Seaside Art Gallery in Nags Head North Carolina is in full swing. And I'm thrilled to have three pieces in the exhibit. But the bad news is I cannot actually GO to Nags Head. If you're like me you can still see these wonderful miniatures online:

The work is listed alphabetically - scroll down to the Hs to see mine.

Here is a peak at one of them - Cape Hatteras Light on a heavily textured surface:

Best of Show

I am thrilled to report that my painting "Gathering Storm" won Best of Show at the Woman's Art League of Akron. It's a wonderful show, juried by Barbara Gilette and presented at the John Siberling Gallery in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.Its a small, cozy  space and the show was limited to pieces 11 x 14 or smaller, framed. My entry was 5x7".

 The gallery is maintained by the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley.
We were so impressed we created this slide show of the gallery and the grounds:
