Howsare Kathleen Hopeful Acrylic

Howsare Kathleen Hopeful Acrylic

Second Place Trees are one of my favorite things to paint. As I was on my morning walk the sun was breaking through the fog and creating long diagonal shadows in the grass. Taking a photo with my phone I knew I must capture this atmospheric picture on canvas! Hopeful Acrylic 24 x 30 $1,850 Kathleen Howsare

Bysshe, Stanley-Ruby-throated

Bysshe, Stanley-Ruby-throated

Third Place We have a large pollinator garden and Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds are frequent visitors. They are by no means shy, but getting one to sit still for a close-up portrait is a challenge. Ruby-Throated Photography 10 x 10 $125 Stanley Bysshe

Brabant, JIll - Cascade

Brabant, JIll - Cascade

Honorable Mention I was inspired by Henri Fantin-Latour’s painting, Roses Jaunes Dans Un Vase (Yellow Roses in a Vase). These soft off-white roses had a hint of creamy yellow to them and demanded the complementary color to enhance their beauty. Cascade Oil 12 x 16 $850 Jill Brabent

Hopkins, Laura-Autumn Grove II

Hopkins, Laura-Autumn Grove II

Honorable Mention This painting is part of a series of experiments using a window washing squeegee to both apply and remove paint. The vertical, horizontal, and diagonal squeegee marks seemed to call for bold paint application and strong color. The expansive foreground in muted green keeps all the boldness in check Autumn Grove II Oil 8 x 10 $350 Laura Hopkins

Auman, Sandra-Tete-aTete

Auman, Sandra-Tete-aTete

This painting was inspired by a visit to the winter stables of the Lipizzans at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria. It was a quiet morning in the courtyard and the stallions seemed to be enjoying a lull in activities. I like portraying life behind the scenes. “Tete-a-Tete” Watercolor 15 x 22 $1,200 Sandra Auman

Baker M. - Woman Walking Acrylic

Baker M. - Woman Walking Acrylic

Women appear in my paintings late at night -most often uninvited. The figures seem to find their way to me instead of me deciding to paint them. They come in various nationalities but all with a story to share. They carry baskets, blankets and burdens but mostly the future-babies. I just tell their stories Woman Walking Acrylic on canvas panel 16 x 13 $450 Michelle Baker

Baumgartner, Betty- A Distant Glow

Brabant, JIll-Peonies and Provence

Brabant, JIll-Peonies and Provence

Soft pink peonies and a favorite green confit pot remind me of Provence. If you look closely you will find a pink ribbon on the tabletop along with strewn petals. Peonies and Provence Oil 20 x 16 $1,400 Jill Brabent

Brabant, Jill-Sanguine Roses

Brabant, Jill-Sanguine Roses

Sanguine Roses: a play on words! I used a sanguine charcoal to create this drawing, but these roses also looked sanguine as they were drooping and had a beautiful gesture to them. Sanguine Roses Charcoal on paper 12 x 9 $275 Jill Brabent

Byshee, Stanley - siblings

Byshee, Stanley - siblings

I spent hours watching a fox den this spring. The three kits when awake were in constant motion but occasionally posed for the camera. Watching their very canine play was as much fun as photographing them. Siblings Photography 10 x 15 $125 Stanley Bysshe

Bysshe, Stanley-Aerial Combat

Bysshe, Stanley-Aerial Combat

Male Common Terns engage in fierce aerial territorial battles over just a small piece of sand in a nesting colony. It is almost impossible to track the birds with a camera and long lens because of the speed of their flight. But the moments that they come together almost look like a ballet. Aerial Combat Photography 10 x 15 $125 Stanley Bysshe

Calhoun, Anne-Morning on the Potomac

Calhoun, Anne-Morning on the Potomac

I went to the river one morning searching for a scene to paint. I knew I had found it when I looked down the river as far as I could and saw the light reflecting off the water in the distance. Morning on the Potomac Oil on board 8 x 10 $475 Anne Calhoun

Covington, Buxx-Land of Fire and Ice

Covington, Buxx-Land of Fire and Ice

Intentional Camera Movement (or “ICM”) is one of my favorite methods for capturing a vibe or palette of a location in an abstract way. This was captured by moving my camera horizontally at 1/60th of a second. Taken on the southern coast of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, this photo explores the white of the snow, the black of the morning sea, the fiery orange of the sunrise sneaking in, and the blue, overcast sky. Land of Fire and Ice Print-Photograph on paper 16 x 24 $450 Buzz Covington

Covington, BUzz-WInter Morning in Stokksnes

Covington, BUzz-WInter Morning in Stokksnes

A windy, freezing morning provided context for just how brutal and beautiful the landscapes of Iceland can be in the winter. Stokksnes Beach sits at the foot of Vestrahorn Mountain, and draws photographers from around the world who vie to capture its unique power and beauty. Winter Morning in Stokksnes Print-Photograph on Modern Metal 16 x 24 $400 Buzz Covington

Covington, Buzz, Kirkja Storms

Covington, Buzz, Kirkja Storms

Following a harrowing trip around the Snæfellsnes Peninsula during a blizzard, we came upon this church that sits atop a hill. The road being completely buried in drifts, we could get no closer and settled for shooting from further away than we had hoped. We were blessed to catch the end of the storm, with a bit of beautiful blue sunshine peeking through. Kirkja Stormsins (Church of the Storm) Print photograph on paper 16 x 24 $450 Buzz Covington

FiorellaMariaLavenderDreams

FiorellaMariaLavenderDreams

A lavender field flowering in July is a dream to paint, particularly under the sun and specially if there are yellow or ochre elements around it, as purple and yellow are complimentary colors which enhance the final art piece. Here I enjoyed keeping the lavender somewhat fuzzy in the background and adding more details towards the front. Lavender Dreams Oil 24 x 24 $260 Maria Fiorella

Helentjaris, Diane-Covered Bridge

Helentjaris, Diane-Covered Bridge

Diane shares her exploration of the interplay between light and shadow. Always fond of the abstract, her photos reveal the intriguing geometry of sunlight and shadow.

Hopkins, Laura-Bittersweet Autumn

Hopkins, Laura-Bittersweet Autumn

This autumn 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. Bittersweet Autumn Oil 12 x 16 $650 Laura Hopkins

Hopkins, Laura-Day's End

Hopkins, Laura-Day's End

As a painter in the American Tonalist tradition, I try in my work to suggest the feeling or mood of a place.

It is my hope that this quiet scene offers you a respite from our fast moving and sometimes turbulent world Day’s End Oil 12 x 16 $650 Laura Hopkins

Howsare Kathleen February Evening Acrylic

Howsare Kathleen February Evening Acrylic

A late day walk in winter became color filled as the sun slowly lowered. The orange light touching the trees and branches was a beautiful complement to the cool blue of the snow. I was also taken with the contrast of delicate vines and grasses against the bold darkness of the old ash tree. February Evening Acrylic 18 x 18 $1,200 Kathleen Howsare

Klioze, Marcia-Dylan-waiting for the ferry

Klioze, Marcia-Dylan-waiting for the ferry

This is my other grandson, Dylan. Dylan looked serious and reflective in this moment, as opposed to Brody, the previous painting. I love the contrast of the two brothers each in their own moment and thoughts. Also, the reflective and dappled light on Dylan's face I found interesting on Dylan's face… Dylan-Waiting for the Ferry Oil 18 x 14 $3,000 Marcia Klioze

McGehee, Caroline-55Five

McGehee, Caroline-55Five

If your spirit guys could talk to you would you let them? Would you see it? Let’s all try to slow down and realize what’s around us. I got inspired when I was learning about angel numbers. Coincidentally I started seeing them everywhere! So I wanted to make this piece to remind me and others to stop and listen to the universe. 55Five Acrylic 16 x 20 $555 Caroline McGehee

McGehee, Caroline-Regeneratio

McGehee, Caroline-Regeneratio

We must expect that these transitional times in our life aren’t going to be easy. Sometimes things that don’t match, compliment instead. This piece to me is just that; rebirth and growth. Messy and might I say balanced? Reminding me of life. Regeneratio Acrylic 24 x 18 $480 Caroline McGehee

Miller, Cynthia-Soul Sisters

I recently made a life decision concerning assuring the quality of my life at later life stages. I signed up a guardian angel health advocate. Although years apart in age we align in numerous ways.

Miller, Cynthia-Watermelon Kisses

Miller, Cynthia-Watermelon Kisses

A "quilt" of sorts in that I painted three separate canvases then "patched" them together like a quilt. I enjoyed the surprises of twisting and turning the watermelon colored slices together. In the drop frame, this is a refreshing piece. Watermelon Kisses Acrylic on canvas 12 x 12 $225 Cynthia Miller

Muncy, Abigail-Coastal SunsetStaithesNorthYorkshire

This is a view of the sky from the Staithes Harbor wall. I enjoy painting gorgeous neutrals and earth tones found in these natural forms.

Palmer, Rachel Garcia-Lavender and Gold

Palmer, Rachel Garcia-Lavender and Gold

Lavender season is short-lived, thus I try not to miss an opportunity to paint at the few local lavender farms. I initially was drawn to this spot because of the complimentary play of the yellow-gold and lavender colors. After drying, I began to build up layers over the underpainting with both compressed charcoal and pastels, leaving visible areas of oil.

Palmer, Rachel Garcia-To Be Plowed

Palmer, Rachel Garcia-To Be Plowed

In this painting, began as a plein air at Farmer’s Delight, I wanted to build contrast between the saturations and textures of the greens. I also wanted convey an almost dreamlike quality to the scene. I recently began experimenting with laying charcoal and soft pastel over as a means of developing atmosphere and texture. I used this process over the original painting. To Be Plowed Charcoal and pastel over oil 14 x 18 $495 Rachel Garcia-Palmer

Parent, Terri-Patent Pending
