Burning is like drawing without the smudges, or painting without the paint drying on the brush. It is a medium that leaves very little room for mistakes.

A Favorite Work of Art

We asked some artists to share a favorite work and their inspiration.

Featured Artist Lea McComas

My art is an extension of that fascination with the human experience. It’s about capturing stories with fabric and thread. Each piece is meant to introduce the viewer to a new character or set of characters by opening a window to their narrative.

Art and the Animal World

We invited some artist friends to share their observations and mediums, resulting in a fantastic display of many different animals, both wild and domestic.

I do enjoy all types of art and art that’s rendered from beginners as well as from seasoned professionals. I primarily enjoy exploring subjects that have great contrast in light and dark tones and that are rich in color.

Featured Artist Eleanor Goudreau

Art for me is an outlet, a form of expression that allows me to deal with frustrations, joys and challenges. To be able to bring a plain piece of paper to life with a drawing is pure magic.

Featured Artist Patricia Mitchell

I have spent many years learning how to draw and paint. I have painted in every standard medium and on almost every kind of surface.

Featured Artist Gill Tomlinson

Going forward, I want to keep making art which makes my heart sing—to reach more people who love my work. I hope to continue to inspire others through both my art and my creative holidays.

Featured Artist Joyce Kubat

The human figure has always been my focus, and over the years it’s become a psychological focus. By incessantly reworking my drawings, little by little, something unknown surfaced. Intimacy and psychological intensity surfaced.

Featured Artist Linda Ann Weber

In the end my “Graffiti Series” is a body of work that explores non-objective painting. Each painting is an extension of who I am and what I feel in the moment.

Featured Artist Judith Selcuk

One of my pet hates is when I hear or read about coloured pencils being referred to as pencil crayons. I feel this greatly undervalues them. The way in which I use them is akin to oil painting in that they are used like glazes; each colour shines through the next and gives my work a very three dimensional feel.

Featured Artist Dan Menta

I get enormous pleasure and satisfaction when I start with a blank white surface and slowly bring to life a painting of a recognizable image from our past or present and then watch my customer’s face when they see their completed painting.

Featured Artist James Becker

I’ve always been intrigued by the challenge of photorealism, and have a long time love of automotive design. So it seemed only natural that I would dive into the chrome bumpers of a ‘57 Chevy.

How Artists Earn: Tattoo Art

Turning what is, initially, a customer’s thoughts into a creative design good enough for them to get tattooed permanently onto their skin is what really makes it worthwhile.
