Water Color Paintings by Gretchen Del Rio

Wonderful paintings.

“…The images that I paint reflect my emotions and are expression of my life experience. The are not extensively planned, but rather evolve as the painting progresses. I am always surprised by the end result since it comes into being because of what the medium and emotion has suggested.

The paintings are from my heart and I always fall in love with the subject. I believe that we are all connected and, if an image touches you, it is because we all have the same heart even though our paths may be different.

Most of all, painting what I paint makes me happy. The paintings are my own path unfolding. They are an opening door for me and contain my own passion for life.”

Gabrielle Garland Art Exhibit Opens Saturday in Chicago

Gabrielle Garland is a prolific New York-based artist whose main focus right now is on homes and dwelling spaces. Her little homes are whimsical and alive. Here is what The Hughes Gallery in Australia wrote about her:

“…Focusing on areas of human habitation, Garland does not seek to directly depict these spaces, but rather to communicate the ways we experience place. To that end she twists the rules of perspective to better suit the shift in focus and vantage point that occurs when we are in a room or outside a building. Memory is integral to the process. Garland takes photographs to remind her of the experience of a space and when translating them to drawings she combines alternative perspectives from different photographs to create ‘a kind of virtual collage allowing many different systems of order to exist in a single piece.…'”

Celts -- Exhibit at National Museum of Scotland

This is a stunning exhibit in Edinburgh.

“Go on a quest through the ages in search of the identity of the Celts, at the latest blockbuster exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland.

The first major exhibition on the subject for over 40 years, Celts is produced in collaboration with the British Museum and features over 350 objects from both museums’ collections, as well as other important pieces from across Europe.

Foremost amongst these is the spectacular Gundestrup Cauldron, a richly-decorated vessel made from silver and found in a peat bog in Denmark. Now reconstructed, its surfaces are alive with wonderful detail, providing us with a glimpse of the gods, rituals and lives of the people who made it.

Other objects serve a similar purpose: ranging from reconstructed chariots and carnyx war trumpets to opulent gold torcs and decorative objects. Each piece resonates with a beguiling sense of intrigue, allowing visitors to this well laid-out exhibition to draw their own conclusions about the true nature of the identity of the Celtic people.…  ”
