Sometimes you sense the presence of someone who does not actually seem to be there.
This happens to me once in a while.  Not sure what to make of it.

STRONG WOMEN. Collage. Shelby Pizzarro

Strong Women - Collage
On March 8th every year we celebrate International Women's Day. With this event in mind, the March Tag Swap I joined was a celebration of women...in all our glory!

"Make it Happen" is the 2015 theme, encouraging effective action for the advancement and recognition women in all walks of life. I am delighted to see that purple is the official colour used in commemoration of the Women's Suffrage Movement, for which I have a deep appreciation.

In my life, the strongest women I know are the ones who elevate other women to be the best they can be.  They are the supportive, nurturing souls who are there to catch you when you fall and lift you up to even greater heights in celebration of your victories. I am sure you have them in your life as well.

As I started working on the Tag I came across a photo of two women seated together. I wondered...could they have been as enamoured of the Suffragettes as I am?

The substrate I used for the Tag is illustration board. The background is Citra-Solv paper from a magazine article about women. I added the vintage photo, a doily, a blossoming flower, wax infused paper, text clipped from a magazine, and finished off with sponged and stencilled metallic acrylic paint in various colours. The Tag is now on its way to a new home in California.

As artists, we can "make it happen"...not only through our work, but by being that strong woman we adore having in our lives. So, my question is...Are you "that" woman?

SunGlasses by Nancy Herman


SUNGLASSES
Nancy Herman
6" x 8"
oil on canvas board

Okay what's going on here?  In the last several paintings I have been trying something new.   What I am thinking about with these new paintings (I began the series with Winter Porch) is, "what can I leave out in order to enhance the 'feel' of the subject".  I am using juicy paint in solid areas, but that's another story.  In this painting a girl appears in the chaos of shapes coming out of a station.  She is wearing sunglasses against the sudden glare.  I want to integrate the figure in the composition without losing it as a focal point.

"Hilltop Estate with Sunflowers" by Susan Benigni Landis (Susan B. Landis)

 
"Hilltop Estate with Sunflowers"
11x14, oil
 
 
I am so glad to create my first post as part of the Daily Painters of Pennsylvania. I've been involved in plein air and landscape painting for many years, although I enjoy a variety of subject matter. Often, I will do small plein air pen/ink/watercolor sketches and turn them into larger oil landscapes in the studio. This painting was done from such a sketch, on location in Italy, in the region of Umbria and reminds me of the warmth that has yet to come in Pennsylvania.

The Still Life by Julie Riker


 I am eager for outdoor painting weather but still not ready to venture outside.  The past week I have dedicated some days to practicing the still life in my studio.  I am working directly from a live setup (no photo) and completing each painting in one sitting.  My subject matter all came from a trip to the grocery store.  The tulips were a delight to have in the house and made their way into several paintings before they wilted.  Here are two of them.

"Walk through the dunes", pastel, Tatiana Myers.

"Walk through the dunes"
9 x 12" on Multimedia panel.

This painting brings back my memories of beautiful pink Dunes of Idaho.
Places where eye can wander without stopping on anything related to human civilization.
So much of space, so much of poetry.
One day I hope to be back there to see my friends
and all that incredible  humble beauty what is called "desert"


ATLANTIC SUNRISE By Cecelia Lyden

acrylic/canvas
12x16

This is my final Forida painting for this winter season. It was done from photos taken from the balcony. The sunrises in the last four years have not been as colorful and glorious as the first couple of years we were here, but still, spectacular enough to photograph and paint. Sunrise skies are fleeting, but painting them is the way I capture them and hold them forever.

BEGONIA AND BIRDFEEDER


BEGONIA AND BIRDFEEDER
Nancy Herman
6" x 8"
oil on canvas board

Many years ago my husband took over the care of our houseplants.  It was one of those rare seamless transitions that sometimes happen in a marriage.  Ever since the scientist has been running the show the plants are thriving.  The 'artist' (me) had mixed results.  I love seeing the light through the leaves of this happy Begonia in the afternoon.  Out the window is a very old bird feeder which was here when we moved in 44 years ago.  The birds love it and we love watching them taking turns or fighting over the seeds.  It is winter sport for the old foggies.
