Small Treasures

Earlier this week I was a member of the volunteer group to hang this year's Small Treasures show for the Paso Robles Art Association. This spectacular fund raiser features a gallery full of 8 x 8 inch (20.32 x 20.32 cm) original artworks along with several small 3-D creations (only rule is that it fit in the gallery gift bag)~each piece of art...only $100. This year's show started off with 165 pieces that will continue to be added to as artwork sells. It's a fabulous variety of styles and subjects worth taking a look at. The show runs from now until December 12th in the Showroom.

Finding Fine Art

You never know when or where you will stumble across that artist whose work you just click with.


The Process-Original Acrylic Painting by Jessica Torrant

This week I joined artist Jessica Torrant, in her effort to promote Fine Art Friday, a movement celebrating and sharing independent artists online. In just a few short days we have taken what was the simple thought of sharing some of our favorite art on twitter, and hoping others would tweet along with us, into a grand plan including a dedicated blog, tumblr, Flickr Group Pool, Etsy Treasuries as well as its own twitter profile.

We encourage artists of all media to join in sharing in whichever form they choose and we REALLY encourage art collectors to have a look at what’s being shared.

To kick off this Fine Art Friday I am sharing a few abstract paintings I found while browsing Etsy (and one of my own…).
