My goal is to leave the world a better place through the appreciation of art. I love the life I have claimed for myself and feel very lucky and grateful for this focus I have in the creative pursuit of art.

Featured Artist Shanlin Ye

I make use of washes to form an abundance of effects. I am fascinated by the fluidity and ungoverned nature of watercolor. I enjoy watching the water and the color dancing on paper.

Featured Artist Ruth Armitage

Painting for me has become a kind of salve for loss. My sense of the place amounts to more than the soil, the landscape, the house or the people. It is some magical concoction of all of them, wrapped in history, secrecy and love.

Featured Artist Katherine Weber

I can’t wait to see what the colors decide to do, as I allow them to mix and mingle, usually a triad of poured colors. I have happily abandoned all control.

Featured Artist Mary Kay Neumann

Climate change put “fire in my belly” to focus on the social change aspect of my artwork. I emphasize the threat to our environment by the climate crises and ways we can make a difference.

Featured Artist Gary Cadwallader

And so, I want a painting to be an extrovert. The painting has to stand up and shout, to reward the viewer so that people never leave a room without having to look at it one more time.

Featured Artist Dale Popovich

When I get back to my studio I create color roughs from my photo references that intrigue me. What has taken me years of painting to recognize is to leave unimportant things out of my painting. Simplify!

Featured Artist Caroline Deeble

I believe through my paintings the viewer can connect with nature, it’s gentle rhythm, its immense power and its cleansing ability to calm the soul.
