Coleman_Karen_Common Persimmon_graphite

Honorable Mention I did this detailed graphite drawing as a study of the Persimmon Trees fruit’s characteristics prior to painting it in watercolor. I love the depth and atmosphere that can be accomplished with just a graphite pencil. Common Persimmon Graphite 15.5 x 13.5 $300 Karen Coleman

Buswell, Carol- Nanny-Maid- Chauffeur-artist-oil-on-panel

Buswell, Carol- Nanny-Maid- Chauffeur-artist-oil-on-panel

The work is never done. Yet, beneath the maternal exterior is an artist, and her work is never done. There’s always a composition being worked out, a color palette being analyzed, and every spare moment dedicated to her practice. Nanny. Maid. Chauffeur. Oil on Claessens Belgian Linen Panel 15 x 15 $300 Carol Buswell

Buswell, Carol-Defiant

Buswell, Carol-Defiant

Like living in a pandemic, I had to find ways to simplify this composition to make it work. Using a limited palette of white, blue, and red earth, I found harmony in chaos, and hope in a brave new world. Defiant Oil on Claessens Belgian Linen Panel 22 x 18 NFS Carol Buswell

Carr, Alex-Cardinal on BIttesweet VIne

Carr, Alex-Cardinal on BIttesweet VIne

The inspiration for this painting was the beautiful, bright red cardinal in winter. The gold and orange bittersweet vine added warmth to what would otherwise have been a rather stark winter scene. Cardinal on Bittersweet Vine Watercolor on paper 15 x 18 $385 Alex Carr

Coleman_Karen_Beginnings (Green Heron)_colored pencil and watercolor

Coleman_Karen_Beginnings (Green Heron)_colored pencil and watercolor

A friend is very lucky to have Green Herons nesting each year in the trees along the lakeshore in her back yard. Knowing that I love to paint feathers and eggs, she collected some empty eggshells for me after the birds had hatched last year and the fledglings had left the nest. In addition to the lovely turquoise-blue eggs, I included a feather from the adult bird. Beginnings (Green Heron) Colored pencil, watercolor 14 x 12 $275 Karen Coleman

Flynn Mara Promise Acrylic on Canvas

Flynn Mara Promise Acrylic on Canvas

Ever a fan of the horizon line, I used that horizontal plane to guide long brush strokes back and forth across the canvas with thick, undiluted paint. I deliberately used one brush for the entire piece adding and blending a minimal number of colors to keep the image cohesive and pleasing. Promise Acrylic on canvas 16 x 20 $285 Mara Flynn

Flynn Mara The Cove Acrylic on Canvas

Flynn Mara The Cove Acrylic on Canvas

Inspired by a photo in my personal collection, I used many shades of green and blue -- ranging from the dark dark blue horizon line to the turquoise of the sea to the pale blue of the sky -- to portray the calmness I felt from my memory of the slow moving waves.

Hindle Stuart - Autumn Birches

I tried to capture the airy sunlight through the birch trees and late autumn leaves. The air was so quiet on this hike with only a faint rustle of wind. Autumn Birches Oil on canvas 24 x 18 x 1.5 $1100 Stuart Allison Hindle

Hindle Stuart- Dogwood on a Country Road

Hindle Stuart- Dogwood on a Country Road

Hindle Stuart-Cornwall Polurrian Cove

Cornwall has many coves with lovely beaches but is mostly a rocky shoreline with cliffs that have been formed over millennia. The weather can change in minutes.

Holdridge, Sherri-Asleep in the Meadow

Holdridge, Sherri-Asleep in the Meadow

While hiking in Point Reyes, California, I came across this beautiful scene. I came across this deer sleeping in the middle of a meadow. I am drawn to this photo because it reminds me of an Impressionist Painting with the dots of color and texture from the grasses and flowers. Asleep in the Meadow Encaustic photography on wooden panel 8 x 8 x 1.5 $180 Sherri Holdridge

Holdridge, Sherri-Elephant Lines

Holdridge, Sherri-Elephant Lines

While on safari in Botswana, in the late afternoon light we passed this lone elephant Bull grazing on the grasses. I overexposed this image and created it in Black and White. With this edit you can see each and every line in his skin. With the layer of wax painted over it gives it a hint of tan and age to the image. Elephant Lines Encaustic photography on wooden panel 8 x 8 x 1.5 $180 Sherri Holdridge

Holdridge, Sherri-Stable Light

Holdridge, Sherri-Stable Light

I photographed this donkey, while on an equine photo shoot, from the back window looking into the light of the stall door. I was drawn to this image because of his gaze into the light. I love how the light highlighted his profile. Stable Light Encaustic photography on wooden panel 24 x 18 x .75 $280 Sherri Holdridge

Hopkins, Laura-Groundhog Day

Hopkins, Laura-Groundhog Day

This winter scene, like much of my work, is painted from memory, imagination, and study of the work of historic painters. I paint in the tradition of the American Tonalists of the 19th century whose contemplative and poetic works were thought to provide solace and respite from a war-torn and increasingly industrial world. It is my hope that viewers of my work find a place of rest and comfort. Groundhog Day Oil on linen wrapped panel 13.5 x 15.5 $350 Laura Hopkins

Hopkins, Laura-Late Winter Twilight

Huyett, Sheila-Pretty Boy

Huyett, Sheila-Pretty Boy

My father grew up on a farm in Tennessee. When I started painting roosters, he was so excited to tell me about this beautiful rooster with feathers all around his feet. I looked it up and sure enough, these had the most fun, whimsical look about them! Pretty Boy Oil 18 x 24 $345 Sheila Huyett

McClafferty, Susan- High Steppin

McClafferty, Susan- High Steppin

We ask horses to do so many unnatural things as part of their lives with us. In this image I felt as though the horse is offering her hoof to us - perhaps in friendship or maybe she just wants to dance.

McClafferty, Susan-Ready Steady

McClafferty, Susan-Ready Steady

Horses tell you what they are thinking. Sometimes with the position of their ears but also with the position of their hooves.

McClafferty, Susan-Swish It

McClafferty, Susan-Swish It

Miller, Cynthia-Dreams of Light and Love

Miller, Cynthia-Dreams of Light and Love

The love-state and life can be murky, however I believe light always shines through when we are mindful and grateful.

Montis, Doreen - Off to Fish

Montis, Doreen - Off to Fish

One of my favorite subjects to paint is children. I love to capture those moments that make me smile and a cute little girl in a spring dress with winter boots did just that.

Montis, Doreen - Reflections of a Lass

Montis, Doreen - Reflections of a Lass

Mulvena, Danny-Over the Next Hill

Mulvena, Danny-Over the Next Hill

Mulvena, Danny-The Pond Bank

Myles, Steve-Maine Light

Myles, Steve-Maine Light

The rocky coast of Maine called me to try my hand at doing the entire painting with a knife. My intent was to emphasize the rough texture and colors in the rocks and the three dimensionality of the trees. Maine Light Oil on canvas 24 x 20 $750 Steve Myles

Myles, Steve-Sad Duchess

Myles, Steve-Sad Duchess

Myles, Steve-Three Chicks

A combination of individual photographs into one large portrait was the challenge and inspiration for this work. Three Chicks Graphite on paper 20 x 24 $250 Steve Myles

Nicely, Elise-Countryside Garden

Nicely, Elise-Countryside Garden

Every day that I walk the dogs through Country Side, I pass this beautiful garden.  The gentleman that lives here has created his garden in the front yard to take advantage of the morning sun.  I complemented his garden one day and he gave me a flower to plant in my own yard! Countryside Garden Acrylic on canvas 18 x 24 $675 Elise Nicely

Nicely, Elise-Hydrangeas_

Nicely, Elise-Hydrangeas_

One year I received a small Hydrangea in a pot and planted it in my yard. I snapped a photo looking down at the bush.  I used the photo as a reference for this painting. My goal was to show the various layers of the plant from the top down. Hydrangeas Watercolor on paper 14 x 20 $550 Elise Nicely

Nicely, Elise-In the Spotlight_

Nicely, Elise-In the Spotlight_

Pavone, Matt-American Horse

Pavone, Matt-American Horse

The color selection and patterning across the stripes of the flag are Pavone’s stylized interpretation of bubble gum on the streets of New York in the 1980s and 1990s. The horse silhouette wraps together these two autobiographical references while also blending the local element of Middleburg’s equestrian culture.

You may have seen me outside the gallery, working on this one a few months ago. I've wanted to paint this beautiful church for quite some time, and I was glad to have the opportunity to finally give it a go. When the two ladies sat down in the churchyard, I couldn't resist including them in my painting. I imagined they were longtime friends catching up after not having seen each other in a long time.
