Paint Snow Hill by Julie Riker


 Last week I participated in Paint Snow Hill, held in the charming town of Snow Hill, MD on the Eastern Shore.  It was a great event and fantastic area to paint with endless subject matter.  I found myself drawn to the many forgotten and decaying structures which conjured up feelings of sadness - but also mystery, and spoke to the power of time and nature over things of man.  I was honored to receive Artist's Choice for Best Body of Work as voted by my peers.

Postcards from Brooklyn

Since I have two children with families living in Brooklyn I often am inspired by the shapes and colors I find there to paint.  As a result I have just published another book in what seems to be developing into a series of Postcard books.  This one has lots of images and musings from Brooklyn and has just hit the news stands.  It is available from Amazon for only $15.00.

"A New Day" by Debra Tritt Kreiger

18"x18" watercolor on crescent board
This year is all about change and growth for me. This is a watercolor painting on crescent board. I am trying out some new grounds and this painting is a inspiration piece to help kick start a new day and sometimes a different way of thinking and painting! I used a reference picture from my friend Amanda. Hope you enjoy.

"Bluebird in the Woods" by Debra Tritt Kreiger


8"x10" Acrylic/oil on canvas
So happy to find out this painting has found a home. Thank you PCCA  Gallery for the recent sale. I painted this plein air at the boat launch in Middletown. The river at the time was very high so I focused on this beautiful setting and light pattern on the bank of the river which was home to the bluebirds.

Today was the  first sunny mild day that I could paint outdoors. I spent 3 hours at the West Fairview boatlaunch on the Susquehanna. It was very peaceful and pleasant. This pic is a tad darker than the painting.

"LADDIE" An Original Pastel painting by Clare Klaum


This painting is a commissioned Pet Portrait for my good friend Katysue.  She wanted to give this to her daughter for a surprise birthday gift.  His name is Laddie and she said he is such a sweet  and loving cat.  A true gentleman!  I was fortunate to have a wonderful photo that her daughter took to work from.  Her daughter was delightfully surprised and loved the painting!  That was my goal.  I always love to hear comments like that.  It makes what I do so worth while and fulfilling.

Oh What a Beautiful Mornin'. Shelby Pizzarro. Collage

For those of you who live near the Quinlan Visual Arts Center in Gainesville, Georgia you are in for a treat!

The Center is hosting this year's National Collage Society 19th Annual Postcard Show. Comprised of small works, the exhibit features art no larger or smaller than 4" x 6" in size. The theme for the show is: "Expansive Art can be Found in a Small Format."

The opening reception is Thursday, April 14th at 5:30 pm. The exhibit runs through Saturday, June 4th, 2016.

My entry this year is "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'". Using a weaving technique, I brought together art paper, hand-made paper, an ad from a trade magazine and husks...which I acquired from a local cornfield.

As with all NCS exhibits, the show promises to be a visual smörgåsbord with something to delight everyone's palate.

To view the exhibition opening, gallery photos and more please visit the Quinlan Visual Arts Center online.

The show certainly supports the axiom "Good things come in small packages"!

 I have recently secured an exhibition room at the 2nd Floor Gallery at 105 South Market street in Mechanicsburg, PA. It is opened Wed-Sat, 11-6 PM. I plan on adding more artwork, including paintings of the "friends" that I have just posted below. I also will be offering a number of original paintings-unframed and very reasonable. I hope you will come visit the gallery soon.
