Painting of the view of a street through a rain covered windshield by Monika Harmund Csanyi

“Windshield” Oil on Gesso Board, 24″ x 12″ by Artist Monika Harmund Csanyi


Monika Harmund Csanyi

As an oil painter, I find inspiration in fragments of nature and the man-made world. I love to see things from a different perspective—a perspective that is also a part of our reality and our colorful life.


Painting portrait of a dog by KC Lancaster

“Shy Boy” Mixed Media on Watercolor Paper, 5″ x 7″ by Artist KC Lancaster


KC Lancaster

Beloved animals and their power over us have always fascinated me. It’s healing to bring their images into art, whether it be fantasy or realistic, and to pull the viewer into a happier internal space.


Abstract encaustic piece by Cynthia Garbutt

Untitled – Encausic Piece on Cradled Wood Board, 20″ x 18″ by Artist Cynthia Garbutt


Cynthia Garbutt

Encaustic art uses the elements of fire, wax and oil paint to create a singular textured piece of abstract art. Influenced by nature, as an encaustic artist, I enjoy the contemporary marriage of these elements.


Painting and pencil collage of white flowers by Guylaine Duval

“Night Frenzy” Ink and Colored Pencil Drawings Collaged on Acrylic Painted Watercolor Paper, 22″ x 30″ by Artist Guylaine Duval


Guylaine Duval

“Night Frenzy” is a transition between two worlds, what we see and what we don’t see, such as mushrooms growing and sporulating, insects pollinizing and transporting spores and bugs mating and living inside mushrooms and plants.


Abstract painting of clouds at sunset by Ann Croghan

“Twilight Luminations” Acrylic on Canvas, 38″ x 38″ by Artist Ann Croghan


Ann Croghan

Using numerous layers of transparent color glazes and drawing inspiration from nature, clouds and the universe, I want to captivate viewers in a positive way—to inspire and evoke feelings of joy, peace and divine grace.


Abstract painting of an other-worldly desert scene by Rachel S. Beck

“The Other Side of the Door” Oil on Wood Panel, 20″ x 16″ by Artist Rachel S. Beck


Rachel S. Beck

I use my imagination, an unconventional color palette and a mix of realism and abstract to convert daytime into night scenes of some of the most iconic landscapes from various state parks.


Pastel portrait of a saddled brown horse by Nancy Smyth

“Waiting” Pastel, 20″ x 16″ by Artist Nancy Smyth


Nancy Smyth

The subjects of my artwork are mainly horses and dogs. Formal or relaxed, sleeping or playing, I strive to capture their unique characters. This is my work, but more importantly, my enjoyment and my passion!


Abstract 3-D painted paper mounted on canvas by Cathy Ehrler

“Joy” Watercolor, Gesso and Polymer on Cut Paper Mounted on Stretched Canvas, 36″ x 36″ x 3″ by Artist Cathy Ehrler


Cathy Ehrler

Reduce, reuse, recycle is my mantra and I have applied it to my art. Instead of burning my unsold work I’ve cut it up and repurposed it into more creative pieces. It brings me “Joy.”


Landscape painting of a cloud filled sky by Mary Taglieri

“Cloud Song” Oil on Canvas, 30″ x 40″ by Artist Mary Taglieri


Mary Taglieri

My work is inspired by the natural beauty of the world and how much that beauty can heal. I hope people viewing it can feel the harmony and peace within it.


A mandela painting using Swarovski Crystals and paint by Roberta Veatch

“Tropical Dream” Acrylic and Swarovski Crystals on Canvas, 20″ x 20″ by Artist Roberta Veatch


Roberta Veatch

I am a multimedia artist who favors the creative process of art making. Inspired by circumstance and cognitive dissonance, I create distinct limited series in an effort to expand my consciousness.


Abstract figurative painting by Brenda Carolan

“The Walking Reverie” Acrylic, 24″ x 30″ by Artist Brenda Carolan


Brenda Carolan

My expression comes from my intuition and my ability to feel energy and easily access the soul. My passion is the search for truth, the energetic pull of beauty and the soul made visible.


Abstract figurative painting by Sara Maddox

“The Messenger” Oil on Canvas, 20″ x 16″ by Artist Sara Maddox


Sara Maddox

My art often focuses on the constant presence of media images in our lives. I isolate television or movie moments from their accompanying story to show what remains when the narrative is removed.


Painting of a duck in a pond by Linda Steele

“Morning Dip” Acrylic over Fluid Acrylic Pour, 30″ x 15″ by Artist Linda Steele


Linda Steele

My inspiration comes from the fluid acrylic pour, it’s how I enhance the painting. My enthusiasm for creativity was renewed when I discovered fluid acrylic painting knowing I had to make each unique pour very special.


Painting of a seascape with sailboats by Carol-Ann Salley

“Tranquility” Acrylic on Canvas, 28″ x 22″ by Artist Carol-Ann Salley


Carol-Ann Salley

My desire is to share the beauty of nature through my acrylic paintings on canvas. I depict realistic scenes inviting the viewer in to experience the beauty for themselves.


Mixed media painting of the White Beard Bridge Portal Guardian by Debra Cortese

“White Beard Bridge Portal Guardian” Mixed Media on Canvas, 30″ x 40″ by Artist Debra Cortese


Debra Cortese

White Beard appears in this powerful area of the Delaware River only during winter periods when waves of acute energetic resonance open or close multi-dimensional star gates for approved travelers.


Abstract mixed media painting by Judith Randall

“Actualization” Mixed Media on Panel, 18″ x 24″ by Artist Judith Randall


Judith Randall

I am a mixed media contemporary artist. I work mostly in acrylics and acrylic mediums. I work intuitively and with symbolism. My art is a way to communicate and put love in the world.


4 panel abstract painting by Ma Udaysree Nithyananda

“Self-Beauty-Awareness-Stillness” Acrylic Quadtych, 48″ x 24″ by Artist Ma Udaysree Nithyananda


Ma Udaysree Nithyananda

I create powerful art that is profound but simple and centers around the Bindu or dot. The Bindu invites you to explore the unknown and hidden side of your Being through meditation on it.


Seascape painting by Heike Gramckow

“Splash” Oil on Canvas, 30″ x 40″ by Artist Heike Gramckow


Heike Gramckow

The impressionists use of color, light and shadow inspire my paintings, but I use bolder colors to create images that produce emotions. I paint in oil and pastel, and often use gouache when painting outside.


Painting of a cozy home library by Darrel Kanyok

“A Quiet Place” Oil on Canvas, 14″ x 16″ by Artist Darrel Kanyok


Darrel Kanyok

It’s cold, grey and hurried outside but inside there’s a relaxing cozy wingback chair to nestle into, a cup of tea and a good book—a quiet place.


Painting of a rocky beach scene of a sunset at Gialos Skala Beach in Greece by Lucy Jordan

“Winter Sunset at Gialos Skala Beach” Acrylic on Canvas, 76cm x 91cm by Artist Lucy Jordan

I use a multi-layered technique with bright underpainting to capture the unique light of my adopted home, Greece. I adore the natural world and endeavor to capture it’s magic so others can be equally awestruck.


Abstract figurative painting by Kara Lasiewicz

“Beef Tuff Sisters” Oil on Canvas, 30″ x 48″ by Artist Kara Lasiewicz


Kara Lasiewicz

I enjoy working with the composition and lighting of the figure, playing with juxtaposition and disrupting realism. The use of color, value and paint handling is something I am always experimenting with.


Painting of a cat looking at a mouse by Jacqueline England

“You Can’t See Me…” Oil on Canvas, 10″ x 10″ by Artist Jacqueline England


Jacqueline England

As a realism artist, I enjoy painting all types of animals. When I can add a little humour to one of them, as with the “You Can’t See Me…” painting, it is an added bonus.
