I've been an artist for most of my life though more intense these past 25 years. Originally from Ohio, I taught at the Palette and Chisel Academy in Chicago, then moved to the Anacortes, Washington in 1991, where I find constant inspiration.
My work takes on two basic faces. The first and oldest is my plein air oil painting. It is simply a response to nature and it’s environs with all it’s complexities. For me it is a time of great enjoyment probably equal to a fly fisherman in peak season or sailing on a broad reach with waters of glass. The most challenging part of plein air painting is the weather, but for a seasoned painter, you learn to adjust and cope. This would be my most comfortable or safest work.
The second and most demanding part of my work is my studio painting. These are impasto paintings and generally large in format. I start them with pencil sketches and try to make the subject matter take a rear seat to color and texture. With these paintings, I’m constantly drawing from within, which pushes the anxiety level to great heights. Trying to be creative, archival, and establishing my own identity would be my goals in this work. The key to this work is getting myself in that certain mental zone where I lose all concepts of time and space. This would be the most rewarding part of my work with also the greatest risks of failure.
In both cases I am inspired by the landscapes here in the Skagit Valley. In the end, for me, art is about the process of doing, and not the end product expected. Website

I have been painting for 20 years and studied at the Tate Gallery in London. I've been working on my portfolio in the past year as I lost everything in Katrina. I will be doing artshows again this fall.
I am strongly abstract tho artist like Miro and Picasso often called themselves individualists. I enjoy nature and and the art of ancient civilizations ... after all it all started back there somewhere. My journey enhances my ability to communicate the awing and complex world of our human spirit.

Daria Hlazatova, Ukraine
Named after Lewis Carroll’s syllogisms my blog will lead you to my humble dwelling, furnished with drawings, some paintings, occasional doodles and naïve views on the world. It is inhabited by wolves, rabbits, bears, ladies of a certain age and bowler-headed gentlemen. It contains a great deal of nonsense. And it confirms the universal truth that all pencils of mine are sugar-plums. Hope you'll enjoy your visit!

Born, raised and educated in New York, my background is Fine Arts. My eye is well trained to notice the smallest of details. My pieces are classic, with a timeless quality, they are delicate yet striking usually with a flow of color and motion! Photography is also a passion. With the advent of the digital age, I use that same trained eye through the monitor of my digital camera, taking advantage of color saturations, macro close-ups and the full range of editing.

. An artist's ramblings by Lynne Reichhart
I have always been an artist as long as I can remember. I took 20 years off to work as a Computer Analyst, but have finally returned to my first love – art.
After so many lost years, I can not bring myself to settle on just one medium or type of subject matter. I currently create work in several mediums including acrylic, watercolor and colored pencil, especially for smaller pieces. I also dabble in digital art by painting using a digital brush in a traditional manner.
I love to paint from real life. I think imperfection is much more interesting than perfection. If I see a spot of rust, I will paint it! Website

Escudero is a contemporary artist. Her artwork is both spiritual and whimsical. From time to time she paints a more spiritual Christian image, and occasionally she lets loose and creates a fun and humorous piece. She refers to her art as Abstract Representational art because she paints with an imaginative point of view, while splattering figurative beings throughout her art.
. A PAINTING A DAY - INTERNATIONAL FINE ART MOVEMENT
Hall Groat II has been a fine artist for over 20 years. He currently is a Professor at Broome Community College in New York, where he teaches foundation courses in painting, drawing, color theory, and computer imagery.
Groat has had one-person exhibitions at Everson Museum of Art, Roberson Museum of Art, Finger Lakes Community College, Cazenovia College, Jasper Rand Art Museum, Lemoyne College, Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, and Washington and Jefferson College.
In 2004 he was included in an exhibition at the Roberson Museum Center, entitled Cosmos and Chaos: A Cultural Paradox, with artists Lucian Freud, Eric Fischl, Jerome Witkin and several other contemporary artists. Groat's work was featured in a full-page advertisement in the January 2004 edition of ARTnews. In 2006 his work was purchased by a significant private collector to be included in a permanent collection alongside German artist, Lucian Freud.
Groat is included in private and public collections internationally, including actors, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones, Clear Channel Communications, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Cellular One, House and Garden, LTD., Sheraton Hotel Corporation, Binghamton University, Everson Museum of Art, Munson-Williams Proctor Institute of Art, The State University of New York system, Roberson Museum and Science Center and Washington Jefferson College.
In 2006 Groat became involved with the new international Postmodern movement called "A Painting a Day" which originated in the United States. This new model was introduced to the world by, Duane Keiser, from Richmond, Virginia, and emerged on a global scale in 2004 through the confluence of various cutting-edge cyber elements, including popular auction sites, blogs, youtube and message boards through Google Groups. This initial model has evolved into a global view of fine art, nurtured by the Internet's public domain status and free from the influence of traditional institutions.
There are many things to see, unwrapped gifts and free surprises. The world is fairly studded and strewn with pennies cast broadside by a generous hand. But- and this is the point- who gets excited by a mere penny? If you follow one arrow, if you crouch motionless on a bank to watch a tremulous ripple thrill on the water and are rewarded by the sight of a muskrat paddling from its den, will you count that sight a chip of copper only, and go on your rueful way? It is dire poverty indeed when a man is so malnourished and fatigued that he won't stoop to pick up a penny. But if you cultivate a healthy poverty and simplicity, so that finding a penny will literally make your day, then, since the world is in fact planted in pennies, you have with your poverty bought a lifetime of days. It is that simple. What you see is what you get.
Annie Dillard from "Pilgrim at Tinker Creek."
. A Painting A Day Daily Postcard Paintings by Manuela Valenti
Manuela Valenti is a contemporary abstract and impressionist artist, one of those rare creatures on earth who can create literally anything with the same enthusiasm. Her passion for painting started when she was just a little child, down in Venezuela, South America where she was born and raised by her Italian parents. Manuela is a completely self-taught artist with a passion for vibrant color and emotions which are reflected through out her works.
In September 2006, Manuela started the project of “A Painting a Day” started by Duane Keiser in the US and has been creating a small oil painting everyday or almost daily ever since. With the philosophy that our world and daily life is just a huge dynamic masterpiece constantly evolving, she gathers inspiration from anything and from anywhere… a couple in an old car rally in France, a fruit on her kitchen countertop or a flower in the garden.

Ruth became inspired by the western lifestyle while growing up in a beautiful California valley. As a young woman, she studied art and design at California State University, Long Beach and printmaking at Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design Los Angeles. Upon graduation, Ruth became an independent artist’s representative, representing painters and photographers, in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York. In 1992 Ruth took her first painting workshop with Maurice Larioux in Santa Fe and became hooked on painting.
Painting has been a lifelong dream of mine. It is glorious to enter my studio each day and take brush in hand and create! My desire is for the viewer to feel as if he were just a step away, as if he could reach out and be a part of the world that I paint”.
Ruth has participated in numerous western art shows across the country. Most recently she has participated in the Yellowstone Art Museum annual art auction in Billings, Montana, the Cowboy Classics 2010 show in Phoenix, Arizona, the American Quarter Horse Museum show in Amarillo, Texas and the Dog and Pony Show at the Brandon Michael Fine Art Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

. ART & CREATIVITY
Hi, my name is Maree Clarkson, and I'm also known as Hedgie on various of my blogs, and Maree de Wet when I write in Afrikaans. I live on an 8.5ha smallholding in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa, on the border of the Cradle of Humankind, surrounded by the Magaliesberg mountains and beautiful tourist attractions like various Game Lodges and the Sterkfontein Caves.
The world is but a canvas to our imagination and it is our purpose here on Earth to experience joy and all the love the Universe has to offer.
My art training consists of a couple of semesters of art in high school in the ninth grade, and two years art study after I left school. I have been drawing, sketching and painting all my life, but have never pursued a career as a full-time artist. But for the past 2 years I have been concentrating on my art full-time, doing a couple of commissions and exhibiting at local
My inspiration is easily stimulated - a certain shape, an interesting line or shadow, a beautiful colour, the curve of a leaf as it gently sways in the wind, a pebble as it lays half covered by sand on the beach ... the beauty of nature far surpasses anything man-made, yet a beautiful architectural design can be equally inspiring. I used to draw endless scenes of city streets, lined with buildings on either side, disappearing into the distance to practice perspective and the play of shadows.
I was once asked the question, "What subjects do you prefer? And why?" My interests vary widely, but upon going through my portfolio, I discovered that animals seemed to make up the majority of my subjects, especially birds. The why? Nature is a great inspiration and offers a vibration of colour and movement found nowhere else.
My tagline is, "There is a fine line between dreams and reality; it's up to you to draw it."
I am constantly exploring my creativity, overcoming my fears in the process and having a great journey along the way!

Tomas Karkalas, Lithuania 1955 -? My head bones were broken in 1974 and I ought to be dead, but God returned me to life after some walk on the edge of the death...my biography reminds the narration of Don Quixote's story, yet that’s the truth: now I live on my disability pension. It is less than not enough for living, but I am not starving and I am not a homeless. I share my pictures with the world but not the complaints, and thus arranged more than 50 my art shows already. The fine arts make the sick the rich with the hearty 'Hi, my dear!' The depth of the steps we leave in life is defined by our love one to other. Thus my pictures are my meditation in color that frees me from my disability by pointing to God

We have no control over so many things that affect us. I am always telling myself that I can’t do much about this or that….but I can certainly live my days doing things that I know are right. I can strive for better. I can be helpful and kind and I can choose to be happy. That’s what this series is about… it’s about climbing out of the murk and living your life in a way that’s positive. It’s about seeing that you really do have a choice and the power to control what you think and what you do, how you react to things and how you choose to communicate. It’s about striving to be a light in your circle of influence. We are not helpless. We are powerful. And when given a choice, let’s take the high road. Website

Giving up the day job and painting professionally was a turning point in my life. Although I have had reasonable success I am always striving for improvement. This drive at times is at a cost and self destruction prevails, but I will not compromise my standards".

I love all types of subjects that tell a story but figurative painting must be my favourite of all. Website

Beatriz Socorro began her formal art training at age 10. During 5 years, she studied art with the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary in Montreal, Canada, where she learned drawing, perspective, the use of light and shadow to obtain depth and likeness as well as clay sculpture. In her twenties she started to delve into the world of color and became self-taught in the medium of oil.
She never stopped painting since then, art being one of the great loves of her life, and took part in a group show at WomanArt Gallery W. 57th St., NYC, NY. in 1976. Professionally, she worked as a photographer and today uses her own photos as subjects for her art work. She has traveled amply through the Americas as well as lived in different cities and countries. Although her art falls under the category of Contemporary Art, she considers her work to be an expression of her own spirit. To put it in her own words: "I only paint when spirit-within leads me and only paint what spirits wants. I myself don´t know what I am going to paint or what the end result will be. I work mostly through the night and sleep during the day. This way I can work without distractions. Sometimes I´ll wake up in the middle of my sleep with the desire to paint and so I do. I don´t impose deadlines, rigid ideas or expectations either on my work or the techniques used to achieve it, because to do so would imply restricting and nullifying the creative impulse of spirit."

In some cases her work shows an architectural sense of space with an archeological perspective. In others, the network of the city and its built form is more prominent. Her compositions work on a number of levels, from close up and far away as if you were looking at it from above. Many of her quilts are based on maps.
She received a Masters degree in architecture from Washington University in St. Louis after receiving her undergraduate degree from Yale University. Her work has been widely published and exhibited.

Painter of Memories
Christopher Clark has been passionate about telling stories through art since he was a child. Using crayons and paper, he would mimic painters he saw on public access TV shows. Through years of training and exposure to many other arts, including music and dance, Christopher evolved into the masterful storyteller he is today.
His travels, inspiration, and education have taken him all around the world, including Italy, France, Germany, Greece, Japan, and Mexico. The life, color, and texture brimming from these cultures profoundly bleed into Christopher’s works. His award-winning paintings have been fervently collected and admirably shown in private and corporate collections around the world.
“I love capturing the drama of an everyday moment that could have happened down the street from my house, or on the shore of a vast foreign continent. I try to make each one of my works a living memory to share with others. Pouring these stories into a single painting is both exhilarating and heartbreaking. But I guess that’s what happens when you open yourself up to the world.” – Christopher Clark

Having spent an idyllic childhood in a small town, ventured forth to the big city to "make it good" and do my Mary Tyler Moore thing. Took a few sewing lessons, and loved it. Mentored under my teacher learning dressmaking, tailoring, patternmaking and designing. During the oil bust of the 80's (OK that dates me!), I started my own design company specializing in debutante, wedding and formal designs. Finally my dream of Mrs. Thurston Howell, III realized! But now it's time to pass on what I know and hopefully inspire you to do something fun and creative for yourself or a loved one!
I show in a studio/gallery and paint in watercolors and ink.

Stewart received a B.A. in Art Education from the University of Iowa, with a special emphasis on life drawing, painting and printmaking. In 1995, she received an M.S. Ed in Counselor Education from Western Illinois University and is a Nationally Certified Counselor.
A turning point for the artist came in 2007 when she attended the Split Rock Arts Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Participating in a week long Intuitive Drawing workshop led by artist Clive King gave her the confidence to leave representational art behind to become committed to an abstract intuitive path. Turning to abstraction was unexpected in some ways but a natural progression of her creative vision. Her previous love of drawing is now combined with pastels to create expressive paintings of nature with movement and depth.
Debora Stewart has exhibited and sold her work both regionally and nationally. She has had work accepted in numerous juried exhibits. She is represented by Iowa Artisans Gallery in Iowa City, Iowa and Quad City Arts Center in Rock Island, Illinois. She is a current member of the Chicago Artist Coalition and has exhibited at Chicago galleries such as the Robert Wayner/Black Walnut Gallery, Karen Solem Gallery and the River East Art Center.
In 2010 she was awarded with an Honorable Mention in the Pastel 100 Competition of Pastel Journal Magazine.
. Coral Barclay Musings on Painting
I grew up on Vancouver Island, British Columbia where our family lived in a small cabin by the sea. I am not sure what childhood has to do with influence on an artist, but i suspect LOTS!. We lived in a beautiful place and what inspires me today is visiting landscape when the light is just "right" and then painting from my experience. The world is a beautiful place and I enjoy attempting to capture it in paint. Website
