Denice Peters – Using pastels, I try to capture that vanishing rural beauty surrounding us every day, that many of us take for granted. I want to give the viewer a sense of peace.

Jane Kell – I love the warm, golden tones of the trees and fading greens in this landscape as the summer moves into autumn.

Joanna Turlej – I am a collage artist. I use pieces of high quality magazine papers, such as Japanese papers, as well as my own painted papers to create an image. I describe my technique as “painting with paper.”

Karen WysopalAlcohol ink and Yupo paper require a dance of give and take between artist and medium, which I find meditative. I can’t imagine a happier way to spend my time!

Kathy Rennell ForbesWhile teaching a watercolor journaling workshop in coastal Maine, I captured this scene in quick plein air sketches and photos; later I completed this larger watercolor at my studio.

 

Artwork by Mira Fink. Her work appears in the Celebration of Landscapes at www.artsyshark.com

 

Mira Fink My art is about recreating the sense of being outdoors in the beauty of the natural world. I love painting the varying color and light in all the different seasons.

 

Artwork by Nanci McCune. Her work appears in the Celebration of Landscapes at www.artsyshark.com

 

Nanci McCuneThe beauty of the ever-changing sky and how it reflects upon the earth has been an endless source of inspiration for my oil paintings since 1969. I’m constantly experimenting, hoping to find new ways to make the canvas glow.

 

Artwork by Rani Garner. Her work appears in the Celebration of Landscapes at www.artsyshark.com

 

Rani GarnerLike many of my paintings, this one evolved over time. I invented a lake scene with the intense lighting I’m drawn to, and the mist was a later addition.

 

Artwork by Shannon Celia. Her work appears in the Celebration of Landscapes at www.artsyshark.com

 

Shannon CeliaI aim to capture the movement of light, wind and sea. I’m compelled to paint contemporary coastal vignettes which celebrate palms, boats, lifeguard towers, horizons, seabirds, waves and anything seaside.

 

Artwork by Susan Pepe. Her work appears in the Celebration of Landscapes at www.artsyshark.com

 

Susan PepeBeginning with splashes of color, once I turned the canvas upside-down, I saw it – the image already there – I just set it free so others could see it too.

 

Artwork by Trixie Pitts. Her work appears in the Celebration of Landscapes at www.artsyshark.com

 

Trixie PittsBased on my memory from a recent safari, this large (60 x 96 inches) diptych was painted with layers and layers of white to achieve a dreamy peaceful, otherworldly feeling.

 

Artwork by Wendy Marquis. Her work appears in the Celebration of Landscapes at www.artsyshark.com

 

Wendy MarquisIn Montana, old rusted trucks are embedded into the landscape. I found this beautiful old Chevy and with my brush, placed it on the side of a country road.

 

Artwork by Felice Panagrosso. See her work as part of "Celebration of the Landscape" at www.ArtsyShark.com

 

Felice Panagrosso – This Series examines neon signage from the 30’s through the 50’s. These objects in our landscape juxtapose commerce, human search for meaning and permanence, against the never-ending flow of time.
