Paseo Arts Festival
Oklahoma Landscape III 1"x 2" Acrylic on linen 18"SS, $225
Notice the beautiful day in Oklahoma. It is the same type of sky I tried to capture in the Oklahoma landscape pendant above. One of my favorite things about Oklahoma are the open clear skies.
I was very honored to have been invited to exhibit some of my jewelry at Sheridan's gallery, A Jeweler's Art, which looked absolutely fabulous. I posted some of her work below. I am so proud of the work that she has done, both business-wise and her artistic skills.
White Rose Oil on linen 1 1/3"x 1 3/4"
19" SS, Peridot $240
Still-life with Camelia Leaves Oil on Linen 1”x1”
19” chain, SS, Faceted Citrine $190
Wild Rose Oil on Linen 1"x2" SS with 14kg bead
19" SS Chain with Aquamarine and Blue Sapphire $235
To create the necklaces above, I make small linen plaster canvases. Once the painting is dried, I make the silver bezel to compliment the subject. Precious and semi-precious gems are added to the chains for the continuation of color. You are able to purchase these at A Jeweler's Art in Paseo.
These beautiful earrings are part of Sheridan's collection, along with the other two photos below. She has better photos on her website, Ajelewlersart.com.
This Becky Mannschreck next to one of my favorite works of hers. I truly wish my photos were better-I am working on that. You should really go to the festival tomorrow or Monday and see her work in its true light.
