“Sneaky Fox” by Skye Elizabeth Wieland

“Sneaky Fox”
sneakyfox

Notes:
Sneaky Fox is a mixed media artwork that was created with oil pastels and oil paints on cartridge paper with black gesso base. Sneaky Fox was inspired by my current interest in foxes and was the best work that came out of a series of commissioned pastels that I worked on.

If you liked my painting of Sneaky Fox, please don’t hesitate to visit my online store at RedBubble.com to purchase prints, clothing or other apparel with this design.

Notes from the Artist:
My name is Darryl Thomas and I am a 68 year old veteran and a stroke victim.
I was a professional musician for almost 50 years. During that time I managed to draw something every once-in-a-while until the last 10 years before an illness which devastated my beloved career. After the initial shock, I bought my second computer
and began teaching myself how to use certain art programs to produce the work I was doing before with brushes and paint, and create art work even more satisfying and more challenging than anything I had ever imagined before. The possibilities are absolutely endless. Not to mention cutting expenses of paint; brushes, and canvas; just to name a few.

Davy Crockett Lake painting 2

November Morning 2

Notes from the Artist:
I am basically a self-taught artist who began drawing and painting at the age of 12. While most of my work is done on a commission basis, I do find time to paint the things I love. Flowers, landscapes, cats, are all a part of my life and my art. My work has been featured on greeting cards and posters. I love drawing and painting older homes, especailly old homeplaces that have character and family history.

Featured Artist: Julie Dumbarton

About the Artist:
Julie DumbartonJulie Dumbarton was born in Lancashire and studied Fine Art Painting at Loughborough University, graduating in 1996.

After graduation Julie moved to Cumbria, drawing inspiration from the peaks, lakes and fells of this uniquely beautiful area. She now lives in the Scottish Borders, a move which brought a new, floral dimension to her work.

Painting in a former weaving mill, Julie creates magnificent rural scenes that utilise layers of oil paint and a rich wealth of colour to create fantastical images that visibly pop with vibrancy.

“Colour plays the main role in what I create. A high or low perspective of densely knotted vegetation, a frantic pattern of grained wood or choking greenery that is so visually claustrophobic it has to be rescued by some sense of the landscape it lies in. I see it as bolts of illumination”.

Her unique paintings are now highly sought after and collected both in Scotland, the UK and all over the world.

About the Artist:
Old Man Carvings offers unique, one of a kind, hand carved Cypress Knee Woodland Spirits Garden Art, Bottle Stoppers and Hiking Staffs.
Cypress Knees are air dried from one to six months to aid in the removal of the bark. Bark that does not peel off is shaved off with carving knives and then sanded. Faces are carved into the Cypress Knees and then a clear penetrating stain is applied to enhance the natural colors contained in the wood. Finally multiple coats of a marine grade urethane are applied to protect the now ready Garden Art from the elements. Bottle stoppers are carved from Bass Wood or Cypress Knees and mounted on a Cypress Knee display base. The bottle stoppers are stained with various colors and protected with a Marine grade urethane. All carvings come with a Certificate of Authenticity that includes the Legend of the Woodland Spirits.

About the Artist:
Alexander Eremin, hereditary professional sculptor, artist, MFA.
Graduated at The Saint-Petersburg State Academy of Art & Design, the Department of Sculpture, 1996-2002.
Permanently living in Saint-Petersburg, Russia.

Notes from the Artist:
I work with wood because it is soft enough to convey emotions, and quite hard to feel the resistance of the material. Besides, it can be painted any way I like to.
I am in permanent search of my own visual language. In my language a shape is inseparable from content. Also there is nothing superfluous. In each work I go through all the way of discoverer. Now I develop two directions, “Impressionistic” and “monumental. Here are collection of my “impressionistic” sculptures.
