EASTER BUNNIES by Nancy Herman


EASTER BUNNIES

signed limited edition giclee print on archival paper with archival ink



Stamps used in EASTER BUNNIES

At this rate I will never finish creating my new web site as when I go through different periods of my art work I get the urge to create another in the series.  So far I have made several more Pure Color pieces, 3 new stamps, and revised several poster collages.  I am having so much fun that I feel guilty.  Now what's that all about?

"Dylan and his Water Gun" Acrylic painting by Charlotte Yealey

8x11
Acrylic
My grandson was very serious about his water gun when he was little. I just had to capture that look.
He is now 10 years old and very serious about racing and football.

"Pas de deux", pastel, Tatiana Myers.

"Pas de deux", 10 x 8", WC & Pastel.

Just off my easel, small mixed-media work (watercolor/pastel)
depicting two red poppies, sign of summer...
With sort of spring we having this year I miss worm days
and constantly painting something bright and summer-like.
This work is available at DPW auction.


FORSYTHIA 2011


Forsythia 2011
6" x 8"
oil on canvas board

I have been busy creating a new web site for the past two weeks, so have not been painting, but last year's Forsythia painting fits the moment perfectly.

I love Forsythia.  It is for me the real messenger of spring as it is so jolly in its thrusting glory.  I hold in deepest disregard those who turn their Forsythia bushes into crippled balls.

"Future Journey", Pastel, Tatiana Myers.

"Future Journey", Pastel, 9x12"

I normally paint places where I went.. unless those are places where I want to go,
but never (yet) had a chance to do it. "Future Journey" is one of those paintings. 
I'm trying to arrange my pastel pallet for our upcoming painting trip to Mexico
 what will be in January 2015.
Whole event is organized and sponsored by Pastel Society of America,
and just guess who is the leading the pack?.. Naturally once again
it will be my favorite Pastel-Guru, Richard McKinley.
I'm lucky to work under his supervision for 4 years now and this summer we meet again 
in Vermont... Those sessions make HUGE difference on my progress as a painter...
Hardly can wait till summer... And I guess now I have something,
what will make to be look forward to next winter too..

'Abandoned Homestead'
An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell


 
'Abandoned Homestead'

Oil on Linen Panel
9 x 12
 
I found this old abandoned homestead while
my husband and I were meandering down our local
country roads looking for some good places
to paint.  This farm sat back off the road,
and almost all of the buildings were painted
this brownish-red, and all had been deserted.
It made me sad to think that such a lovely farm
had been abandoned, but I was glad to see that
someone was still farming the land.

This is a pastel painting I recently finished, and delivered to the Brath and Hughes Gallery in Mechanicsburg, PA.  I call it "Old Blue Eyes".  It reminds me of a horse I once had named "Little Blue".  I've been drawing horses since a was a child.  My Mother says I've been drawing since I could pick up a pencil, however I don't remember that far, but I do remember I was always drawing.  My mother said I started with our dogs, then I moved on to our horses.  I couldn't stop drawing them.  I even drew them during class, recess, and on the bus to and from school.  I know this to be true because I'm on Facebook with many of my classmates and teachers from school, and they all mention this.  I never realized how much I did this, until all of them mentioned it.  I find it humorous, as we don't always realize the things we do that others notice.  I was in my own little world filled the the smell of a horse, the softness of their coats, their long mane and tails, the beat of their hooves.  Such majestic, strong, and beautiful creatures.  I'm still in awe anytime I see one.  I have to stop and look.  I can feel their lines with my eyes, the curve of their neck, the dip at the withers, and the roundness of their rump.  I just want to touch their soft little noses, and look into their  soulful eyes.  There is nothing like getting lost in the depth of their eyes.  They know something we don't.  I'm almost sure of it.

Jewish Stars


JEWISH STARS
20" x 20"
Limited edition signed digital print on archival paper with archival inks

I have always enjoyed the beautiful lithography on old stamps.  A few years back I began collecting them and with the help of friends and sometimes just people I met on a train or airplane I amassed a huge collection of stamps of all kinds.  I then began sorting them out according to color and theme and created collages.
At the moment I am putting together a new web site that is really an on line retrospective.  When I came to the stamp page I decided to create two new stamps.  One in honor of Passover  "Jewish Stars".  Here it is with a link to the new page.  The stars are Raoul Wallenberg, Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, Golda Meir, Ben Gurion and Ann Frank. (Christmas is the other new stamp just to keep a balance in the stamp family)

UNDER THE HIGHWAY


UNDER THE HIGHWAY
6" x 8"
oil on canvas board

The train has come to the end of the line and just as it is when I am really on the train I am more than ready to get off and begin the next adventure.   However, there is still the business of getting through the station and out into the world again.  In this case there is one more painting from the series.  By now the snow is melted and spring is here but on this canvas it still exists and I must deal with it.
At the time it was interesting to see little glimpses of nature through the bridge abutments.  Now I wish I could see the new life that has sprung up there or have a painting of daffodils to show.  And so it goes in life, our unfinshed business keeps us from the pleasures of the day.

But wait...  Here is last year's Daffodil which along with some other of my spring paintings can now be seen at Graver's Lane Gallery.

Stars Don't Only Come Out At Night. Collage. Shelby Pizzarro

I admit I have a soft spot for classic film.  Everything about movies produced in the 1930's and '40's enchants me. I adore it all: life in shades of black and white, the beautiful settings, the incredible home decor, the impeccable hair and make up, the stylish wardrobes...but above all, the clever repartee between the characters always keeps me coming back for more.

Inspired by Old Hollywood, I set upon my collage. I found a selection of black and white photos of actresses I admire and lined them up with my own version of six degrees of separation. The map of Hollywood, metallic silver paper, art papers and vintage edit from "True Story" magazine completed  the piece.

I know that most information released through the Studio system was pure fantasy. But at times, this is what I long for. Is there anything wrong with "happy ever after"?

Have we lost the mystery and glamour of Old Hollywood? Does today's silver screen seem a bit tarnished? Do dreams and fantasy still shape your life and your creative endeavours? May you always have a place for your own "happy ever after".
