Pifel, Joseph-The Southernmost Sunset

Pifel, Joseph-The Southernmost Sunset

During a vacation to Key West, I loved how sunsets were always a celebrated event. The Sunset Celebration is a local gathering where many people, tourists included, can take a moment to sit at the edge of a pier and enjoy the fleeting moments of the sun, and to add a proper close to the end of another wonderful day. Which I feel encompasses Key West’s true relaxing nature. The Southernmost Sunset Photography 8.6 x 15.7 $120 Joseph Pifel

I love the Scottish Highlands. A dram of Highlands’s single malt reminds me of my favorite scarf (soft, silky, floral) so I threw them together in this still life (painted during COVID, when my travel wings were well and truly clipped). Scotch and Silk Oil 21 x 27.5 $1,512 Nan Dawkins

Dawkins, Nan-So Be It

Dawkins, Nan-So Be It

The ocean waves along the northern coastline of France are often brutally destructive in the winter time.

Huyett, Sheila-Grand Dam

As fall rolls in, it’s dahlia season! Much like the peony, dahlias have all those fantastic fluffy petals. I love to see them in bridal bouquets, especially the café au lait dahlias. There is something magical in the way their petals fall. Grand Dam Oil 26 x 18 $345 Sheila Huyett

Huyett, Sheila-Oh the Tangles Webs We Weave

Huyett, Sheila-Oh the Tangles Webs We Weave

Sunflowers are wonderfully unruly flowers. They prefer to arrange themselves, making it a challenge to unravel the ins-and-outs to each flower.

I have always been fascinated with the use of color, and the subtlety of light and shadow on those colors.

Petrecca, Regina-Swirl I II-24x36 diptych-acrylic on canvas

Abstract art is more about the shapes, colors, gestural marks and the feelings it expresses. It does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of visual reality. This give you, the viewer, the freedom to interpret it as you choose. So just stand back and think about the emotions and concepts the painting elicits in you.

Pifel, Joseph-Simple Moments

Pifel, Joseph-Simple Moments

It’s the simplest moments that leave the greatest impact. During a walk in D.C., I noticed the many people watching the boats on the water, the paddle boarders, the kayakers. From the outside, many may think that moments like these aren’t that special, when one looks back at their own memories, it’s those simple times that often seem the best.
