Art Gallery "Animals, Animals, Animals" Art Show

I hopped over to the Vacaville Art Gallery today to take a look at the current show: "Animals, Animals, Animals" I will share just a few of the pieces I photographed today. And more there were so many really good pieces of art to inspire!

I tried to get all the artists names this time to give each credit for his/her work.

This owl photo on canvas is mine! I love my "Loving Local Couple" picture of our local burrowing owls. One of the first I took of them, and I think, still my favorite. Susan, the director, told me today that they are getting lots of positive comments there. Click on photo if you wish to see it enlarged.

I like the kitties underneath them too... And the ceramic dog down below...

This wonderful small collaged piece is done by a group of artists... a collaboration. They call themselves the Art Divas! And they are all exceptionally good artists.

Estelle Kirkendall works part time at the art gallery. She is always so shy about showing her work, and in fact has only been painting a very short time. But look at how talented she is. These wonderful dogs are hers.

I don't know this artist, who has several pieces in this show, each one more stunning than the one before.

Then comes my three part photo, drawing, threadpainting of Henry V. It's always a rush for me to see my art hanging in a show. Henry is feeling just a little bit proud too.

And look, I found some wonderful inspiration for the dolphin doll I am to make for my grand daughter's wish gift for her birthday!

And DH/grandpa was throwing out an old torn blue shirt tonight, which I grabbed and thought how sweet it will be for the Dolphin that is to be in different shades of blue! Like I said, there are many more pieces of wonderful art to share and I will in future posts!
