SPOTLIGHT :: Animal Life

D997D - Davies Babies - Banyon Deer

Animals that act like humans or animals that act like animals…which one should we choose? DD McInnes brings us a fox who writes thoughtful compositions with Michael Drayton Writing Poly-Olbion. Or how about animals in a surreal world? Davies Babies offers the geometrical and astronomical Banyon Deer (see image above). Or how about animals doing what animals do? Kitty Throne from Lucia Heffernan might give too much information.

Featured Artist :: Verne Varona

Verne Varona held his first camera at 9-years old and never lost his passion for capturing exceptional images that provoke, inspire and illustrate a profound sensitivity to the visual world around him.

With basic formal instruction in photography, Verne’s real school of photography has come from the personal experience of over 25 years in still film and 12 years with digital.

He made the digital jump in 2006 and never looked back. Working with commercial, journalistic, fine art, book cover and portrait mediums throughout the world, Verne has developed a creative body of images that he calls “Aqua-Impressionism” — colorful images of unique water reflections from nature, architecture and people that evoke a timeless sense of the ethereal.

Umbrella Perspective is a reminder to us all to take a break and relax under a colorful umbrella while Boat Conference – Amalfi Coast draws the viewer into the deep jeweled waters of the Italian coastline.

Spotlight :: Along the Coast

Leonardo da Vinci said that water is the driving force of all nature. When we browse our collection of art the images of water in so many forms stand out. Water is life and images of water in one’s home or office calms us down and takes us away for a brief moment.

Luna delights and beguiles and Muerta Bride is an alternative view of a traditional event. The spirited renderings by Jorge R. Gutierrez turn classic Hispanic imagery into stories like The Holy Trinity and Magic Japanese Cockfighting.

Featured Artist :: Karen Hale

“Using the basic art elements of color, design and texture I create a vibrant and opulent canvas which both pleases and stimulates the art lover.  The absence of recognizable objective forms leads you on your own journey of discovery in each of my abstract paintings.” Karen Hale’s original contemporary artwork has been called dynamic, bold, explosive and exciting but they also involve subtle nuances of color and meaning that takes the viewer into the painting where they can make new and unexpected insights.

Hale constructs her paintings with layers of thick and thin color that is washed or glazed over textured surfaces using brushes, trowels, and found objects.  She uses acrylic paints and mediums and may add a variety of paper, chalk pastels, graphite and metallic leafing.  The results are a delight of color and texture.

Karen lives on five acres in the foothills of California with her husband, Tom.  She is an avid gardener and her land is filled with paths, sculptures, and exuberant flower beds.  Her sense of color and design are evident even in her gardens that like her paintings feel free and spontaneous but exude design and beauty.

Segments infuses jeweled tones and multiple layers – sharing hints of magenta and citron. Using subtle geometric shapes, Karen turns At The Source into magic with softer tones of blues, greens and organic earthly tones.

Featured Artist :: Tim Oldford

Canadian native Timothy Oldford was born on a farm in the Canadian Prairies. His mother was a landscape artist, so his childhood consisted of being dragged to every gallery across Canada at a very young age. His father taught Tim the basics of photography on his WWII camera and Tim immediately took to the magic that the camera possessed.

At fifteen Tim moved to Victoria and fell in love with the beauty of the coast. After school he got into photography more seriously and had some success with weddings and nature pictures being published in newspapers and books. When his kids came along Tim put his camera down (as a professional) for about fifteen years and only picked it up again after they graduated school. Today Tim concentrates on Canadian landscapes, US National Parks and images across Vancouver and Victoria.

As we begin a new year Crescent Lake Chair from Tim Oldford looks to the future and a gorgeous sunrise and Fairy Lake Bonsai embodies reflection and mystery.

Also: The annual West Coast Art & Frame Expo in Las Vegas is coming up and we would love to see you! Please stop by our booth and view our new releases. We will be at Booth 1205. The show opens Monday January 22th and runs through Wednesday January 24th at Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.

Contact your salesperson today about scheduling a time to stop by and visit.

Featured Artist :: Lucia Heffernan

My body of work is an expression and exploration of my lifelong fascination with animals. Through my paintings, I seek to give animals a voice and a personality, while making light of our uniquely human existence. By imagining what animals might do if put in human situations, I stage tableaus that shine a spotlight on both their innocence and raw instinct. This collision between animal and human sensibilities creates a whimsical, theatrical, and often humorous world that viewers can relate to on an emotional level.

A graphic designer by trade and an oil painter by design, I am continually experimenting with different styles of contemporary realism that balance my artistic sensibilities, technique, and unique sense of humor. As I evolve, what remains constant is my respect for the animals that inspire me, and my desire to bring a smile to the face of every viewer.
