This beautiful artwork is of my niece that love to spend time at the ocean shore in Nayarit Mexico. My nice love to sit on a rock and contemplate the sun rays reflecting through the ocean waves and at the same time my nice love to feel the Fresh breeze on her face.

Title or Location: Not My Taste
In her piece, ?Not My Taste,? Grand Rapids-based collage artist Mary Bamborough provides a glimpse into an alternate reality in which a bird discovers that its latest meal did not live up to its usual culinary standards. The piece also prompts us to wonder, ?Are the bird and foliage gigantic, or are the people miniatures??

Title or Location: Kevin McCallister
I painted this 16x20 acrylic painting on canvas on Christmas Eve eve, 2023. I become really inspired by Christmas movies this same time every year. I've always enjoyed drawing and painting portraits, particularly movie characters. I believe movies connect people, its a universal language. A great movie can bring back so many feelings and memories too.

Title or Location: Jelly of the month club
I painted this right before Christmas in 2022. I am inspired by movies and believe it's a universal language that connects people. I particularly enjoy painting the memorable characters. I've always loved drawing and painting portraits, particularly movie characters that most recognize right away and feel connected too.

Title or Location: Snowshoe Hare
A favorite vacation spot for my husband and I is the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan. In the morning we enjoy having our coffee on the front porch, listening to the peaceful sounds of the surrounding forest and it's wildlife. One morning we spotted a Snowshoe Hare at the edge of the property. It was one of those moments in time that makes me feel the wonders of nature.The Snowshoe Hare was thought to be gone from this area due to the abundance of predators. Seeing one was a truly joyous

Title or Location: City of Canals
An experiment using soft pastels on stretched canvas. The texture of the canvas lent itself to the pastels quite well. The image is based on a photo taken by a friend visiting Venice, Italy. By using more vibrant colors than the original, I believe it became more magical.

After taking up mandala painting in my late 60's during lockdown I decided to experiment using fabric scraps withing the design. This is the result of my first try. I am going to expand on this idea in the near future once I obtain more fabric scraps.

Title or Location: New beginnings
I'm new to oils and painting, I would say my style would be fine art and surrealism, no rules and I can escape, experiment and have fun. I painted this scene as I'd came across a beautiful photo of calla Lilly valley in California, I use the idea but made it my ownwith the colours and changed parts of it, I like the perspective and the enchanting mysterious vibe it gave. Returned to art almost a year ago, still finding my way, but determined, excited and fully motivated to reach my potential,

Title or Location: The Boats at Sunset in Bradenton
I was at The Starfish Restaurant when I captured this view on a cold day in Bradenton Florida from the dock behind the restaurant. I was fascinated by the light coming from one of the boats and the gas pump. The photograph helped me to produce this oil painting when I got home in Ohio.
