Gold leaf on silk by Victoria Pardo

“Aquamarine & Gold” gold leaf gilding on silk, 100cm x 50cm by artist Victoria Pardo

 

Victoria Pardo

My collections are full of inspiration from the colours around me in nature and in travel. Along the journey I discovered my love for silk painting—exquisite pieces blurring the line between art and fashion.

“Shield Me” photograph mounted on wood panel and finished with acrylic resin, 12″ x 18″ by artist Dawn Harmer

 

Dawn Harmer

Shield Me is from the series, “Will They Know I Was Here?” By layering multiple photographs together, I aim to both document and create a transient reality of strangers on the street.

 

Painting of floral arrangements by Jayme H. Mansfield

“A New Day” acrylic on canvas, 36″ x 36″ by artist Jayme H. Mansfield

 

Jayme Mansfield

My floral abstractions are an expression of my most real and complete self. Immense freedom, connection and peace result when brush and paint are laid to canvas and paper.

 

oil painting of a herd of horses by Ken Clark

“Bound to be Wild” oil on panel, 20″ x 10″ by artist Ken Clark

 

Ken Clark

I like to paint landscapes, seascapes, still lifes and animals. My preference for medium is oils. The technique that seems to be evolving from me is somewhat impressionistic or abstract realism.

 

abstract turquoise and gold photographic print on metal by Jennifer McKinnon

“City Jewels Turquoise and Gold No. 1 – 1544 Piedmont Ave, NE, 30324″ photographic print on metal, 24″ x 30” by artist Jennifer McKinnon

 

Jennifer McKinnon

Using dumpsters as my muse, I photograph these unlikely subjects and transform my images into pieces of art inspired by nature—the beach, a storm, spring blooms, or in this case, minerals and gemstones.

 

oil and cold wax abstract koi feeding time by Doris Vasek

“Feeding Time at the Koi Pond 2″ oil and cold wax, 7″ x 5” by artist Doris Vasek

 

Doris Vasek

My work is inspired by nature. Oil with cold wax medium gives me the perfect way to express nature in a loose and slightly abstracted way.

 

black and white painting of the concord girls by Elise Pittelman

“Concord Girls” acrylic on canvas, 24″ x 30″ by artist Elise Pittelman

 

Elise Pittelman

This is the first painting in a series called The Borscht Belt, which pays tribute to the Catskill Mountain hotels and bungalow colonies of the “Jewish Catskills.” This phenomenon has all but disappeared.

 

abstract digital photograph by John Louis Benzin, Jr.

“Fuzzy White Aliens Eating the Nucleus” digital photographic art, various sizes by artist John Louis Benzin, Jr.

 

John Louis Benzin, Jr.

Our world would be a lesser place than it already is without all the creative arts.

 

painting of mother nature by Kristy Lee Green

“Mother Nature Fire and Ice” acrylic and oil on canvas, 16″ x 20″ by artist Kristy Lee Green

 

Kristy Lee Green

My practice as an artist is ever evolving. To me, art means freedom to create without boundaries—to finish with a product of my own, which feeds my soul.

 

landscape painting of aspen trees by Laura Reilly

“Aspen Brilliance” acrylic, 24″ x 24″ by artist Laura Reilly

 

Laura Reilly

I work in acrylic in a representational but abstracted style. This allows the color and image to attract the mind and eye, with an expressive application of paint to celebrate the best qualities of the paint itself.

 

gouach and colored pencil drawing of a hammerhead shark by Lindsey Darter

“The Hammer” gouache and colored pencil, 10″ x 8″ by artist Lindsey Darter

 

Lindsey Darter

I have always been fascinated with nature and in particular, the world’s oceans and the creatures that inhabit them. I’m inspired by what we have learned and what we have yet to discover.

 

photograph of trees by Lorna Hart

“Twisted Trees” photography, 6.75″ x 4″ by artist Lorna Hart

 

Lorna Hart

I have transformed my nature photography in “Twisted Trees” to embrace a dreamlike feeling for my series Nature Intensified. This series includes botanicals and landscapes in highly saturated and mystifying compositions.

 

batik of a sunflower by Lynn Barber

“Summer Delight” watercolor batik on mulberry paper, 7″ x 9″ by artist Lynn Barber

 

Lynn Barber

I am continually inspired by the natural world around me. I create watercolor batiks, using a multi-layering technique of watercolor and wax. I am happy when I can bring a bit of nature indoors.

 

abstract photography of cactus by M Diane Bonaparte

“Blue Flame Cactus Abstract 1” photography, various sizes by artist M Diane Bonaparte

 

M Diane Bonaparte

Along the way I learned that photography would be an important part of the artistic process, either by itself or inspiration for other mediums. My Canon camera goes where I go.

 

abstract diptych painting of a street scene by Monika Harmund Csanyi

“Encounter 1” and “Encounter 2″ oil diptych on wood panels, 16″ x 20” each by artist Monika Harmund Csanyi

 

Monika Harmund Csanyi

My work is representational with a little twist of impressionistic or abstract elements. I love to see things from a different perspective, a perspective which is also a part of our reality.

 

digital art abstract by Osvaldo Buccafusca

“Path of Uncertainty” digital art, 16″ x 12″ by artist Osvaldo Buccafusca

 

Osvaldo Buccafusca

As a digital artist, I explore the use of computers as a tool to create unusual imagery. My predilection is to combine my imagination with the potential of mathematics to create fascinating abstracts.

 

abstract painting of a marsh by Pamela Tarbell

“Marsh Kaleidoscope 4″ oil on canvas, 36″ x 60” by artist Pamela Tarbell

 

Pamela Tarbell

I strive for a variety of color vibrations and complex compositions. I am inspired by Kandinsky who said, “Color hides a power still unknown but real, which acts upon every part of the human body.”

 

mixed media image of manta rays by Rhea Reeves

“Deliniation” mixed media, 33″ x 33″ x 6″ by artist Rhea Reeves

 

Rhea Reeves

I use wire, thread, fiber and acrylic paint to create three-dimensional paintings that explore my personal contemplations of nature, community and connection. My goal is to ignite emotion with color and texture.

 

gold leaf painting of a pink lotus by Rajul Shah

“The Pink Lotus” acrylic and 23kt gold leaf, 8″ x 8″ by artist Rajul Shah

 

Rajul Shah

A career in healthcare and life experiences taught me the importance of energy that positively impacts health and well-being. This energy is shared in my artwork where I paint “escapes” with meditative layers of color and light.

 

abstract acrylic painting by Rick Citta

“Hello Earth My Name is Sky” acrylic, 19.75″ x 15.75″ by artist Rick Citta

 

Rick Citta

I often enjoy working with a variety of water-based products, especially texture pastes and metallics. I also extract a lot of energy and inspiration from irregular forms and shapes—textures from the surrounding world.

 

cityscape digital collage by Vered Galor

“Tower of Babel” digital collage, 25″ x 15″ by artist Vered Galor

 

Vered Galor

My photographic collages are layers of my reflections and observations—whether personal, political or historical. Like with life experiences, my thoughts, feelings and emotions accumulate and get expressed in the artwork.

 

painting of a sheep by Tina Swindell

“Bella” acrylic on canvas, 5″ x 5″ x 2″ by artist Tina Swindell

 

Tina Swindell

This is one of my many animal and portrait paintings. My purpose and inspiration is to highlight the beauty of God’s creations for others to see and enjoy.

 

digital photograph of a desert with small figures by Vincent G. Ferrari

“The Insignificance of Man” archival digital photography, 20″ x 16″ by artist Vincent G. Ferrari

 

Vincent G. Ferrari

My photographic subject matter includes landscapes, architecture, natural settings and humanity interacting with all of those entities. My hope is that the work I present will convey the same emotions I felt when making the images.
