Ginger Earl, Painting

                There was art and art appreciation in my childhood home.  Drawing, painting, and crafting were inherent to life! Until recently, I told myself that I had lost touch with this easy creativity in the years of my early adulthood.  I now see those years as highly creative and full of meaning which informs my […]

Linda Collura, Painting

       In my art, I like to discover images in nature, particularly those that capture moments of intense texture, light, shadow, and reflection, and then think of different ways to combine them to create humor, personification, or just plain whimsy.

Helen Buiskool, New Nature Paintings

Maria Tadd, Painting

Since childhood, nature and animals have fed my soul so animals and birds are often the primary subjects of my paintings.  I enjoy coming up with compositions that use multiple reference photos or placing an image in a “landscape” that is totally different from the one in the photo. I am drawn to watercolor because […]
