With many embracing the world of technology, the brick
and mortar shops have been falling to the wayside. Yet there
is nothing like going in person to view original art. I don't
care how many pixels / per inch a computer screen has, for
it's deceiving to the original scale. A viewer may be impacted
by very small images with great detail, as opposed to a very
large and simplistic rendering. So please remember your
galleries! They are so important to the livelihood of artists
and the gallery owners, as well as promote original art.
So with humble thanks to Tirage Art, here are pictures of
just a few of their very recent sales.
in the life of an artist. That's when I take a break from my pastels and play with dolls. Such good memories but also creative and I must say, I'm being so green! Nothing like recycling long-forgotten dollies. This piece, "Then and Now?", owned by a private collector, has a petit pastel as the stomach, baby's body parts and hand-sewn clothing.
AS A LITTLE GIRL
from Painesville, Ohio, I always dreamt of becoming an artist. Somehow along the way I stopped and became a belly dancer. Yes that's right - a belly dancer. Sure was a crook in the road, but what an unforgetable experience!
I'm back on the road and painting away. I have a love for pastels with their vibrant colors and the way of manipulating the sticks, gives a feel of sculpting paintings.
