About Janis Grau -:"Maryland native, Janis Ilene Grau, has been working in watercolor for about fifteen years; as well as teaching middle school art for the last thirty-five years. In 1966 she earned a BFA degree from the Maryland Institute, College of Art. She has pursed course work at Towson University and various workshops earning credits in education and art equivalent to a Master’s plus 30. Janis lived for many years on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and now maintains a home in Ft. Myers, Florida. She has found numerous subjects for her watercolors from the natural settings in both of these coastal areas."

"She paints flowers, primarily, but also loves still life and landscape subject matter. Her love for the medium of watercolor grew from an early age when her high school art teacher, Jim Laubheimer, would require a weekly watercolor as homework. “He would send the class to paint “en pleine air” regardless of the weather. I can remember one winter day trying to paint the Baltimore skyline from Federal Hill, when the air was so cold that our washes turned to ice on the paper.” From this early discipline in the medium grew her expertise in technique, a keen sense of color and a desire to capture the fleetingness of nature in some permanent way."

"To be able to combine a love of watercolor with my fascination in capturing close up images of beautiful flowers is just the best of all possible worlds. My work is created so as to engage the viewer’s eye and have it wander throughout the patterns, shapes, shadows and colors of the painting, observing details less visible on a smaller scale. I want the observer to be drawn into the flower, imagining the scent and feeling the texture of each petal and leaf. "

Artist Feature Sandra Bronstein

Art Prints

Sandra Bronstein says, "It is my pleasure to share the beauty of the natural world and its magnificent wildlife as seen through my lenses for the last 25 years.
Having been intrigued by many different elements in both the manmade and natural world, I strive to discover new and different ways to capture these varied elements. These wonderful places have provided me, and now you, a view into a world that continues to change. Simply put, we are viewing but a moment in time. Please enjoy your travels through this beautiful world. May your journey prove to be as exciting and fulfilling as it was for me the moment the shutter clicked."

Sandra is not only an extremely prolific photographer, she is also very artistic with a keen eye for what looks brilliant. Sandra Bronstein is one of those photographers that stand out from the start.

"This wonderful old barn was home for many years to the Dahmen family in Uniontown, Washington, near the beautiful Palouse area. One of the interesting things was the fact the property was surrounded by metal wheels which Mr. Dahmen collected and welded together for years. It was truly a life's mission which, sadly, was not completed. Since the property's sale, the barn has been renovated. The Dahmen Barn located in Uniontown Washington is well known for it’s 1,000 antique wagon and tractor wheel fence. Located along US-195, the Dahmen Barn is home to many artisans who show their wares and have shops within the barn. This image was taken many years ago when the barn still had all the implements and tools laying around. Today, as time marches on, this no longer exists. "

A very apt title for such an elegant bird!

"The iconic Castle Geyser in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, has been photographed endlessly for many years. Winter seems to define the power of the geyser basins in Yellowstone more than any other season. Since Yellowstone appears to create its own weather patterns, no two days are the same and the appearance of any feature is greatly altered by light,steam,fog and clouds. This view of Castle Geyser is perhaps my favorite with the glorious sunrise light being filtered by the steam and clouds of dawn allowing gentle reflections onto the geyser runoff. The snow and ice blanket Yellowstone in the winter creating wonderous patterns in the geyser basins as the heat from the geothermal features break through the earth's surface. Winter can appear foreboding and yet is beautiful in its own way."

My own choice of a so-called favorite from the portfolio of Sandra Bronstein is a minimalist image. I admit that finding a true favorite was nigh on impossible as it is with many artists, and yet this image speaks to me in the most beautiful way.

Therese Alcorn Featured Artist

Sell Art Online

Therese says, "I've created art for as long as I can remember - beginning with potato prints as a child and progressing to oil painting as a pre-teen. In recent years, I've had the privilege of attending workshops and tutorials by other artists whose work I admire, which has taken my passion for creating art to a whole new level. As well as oil paintings, I also produce art in the mediums of pen & wash, watercolour and mixed media. I'm inspired by nature, people, landscapes, cultures - almost anything that compels me to reinterpret an image or experience through my art. I simply can't imagine life without art."

What a charming artwork, and Therese explains it as, "Representational of "The Empty Nest Syndrome" experience by many parents when the children grow up and leave home. The little touches of sunshine in the painting represent the notion that there is light at the end of the tunnel - it may just take a little time to adjust and find another passion to pursue."
