Two first-time artists — well, the first time they’re on “06880,” anyway — join our online art gallery this week.
They’ve picked a good time. With Hanukah underway, and Christmas just a day away, several works touch on the holiday theme, directly or indirectly.
As always, all year long: This is your feature. All readers are invited to contribute. Age, level of experience, subject matter — there are no restrictions.
All genres are encouraged. Watercolors, oils, charcoal, pen-and-ink, acrylics, lithographs, collages, macramé, jewelry, sculpture, decoupage and (yes) needlepoint — whatever you’ve got, email it to email@example.com. Share your work with the world!

Happy Holidays, Dan! I always enjoy the weekly online gallery. It’s especially fun to have seen Lawrence Weisman’s charcoal(?) drawings and notice his skills improving. As someone with no artistic skills, I’m still trying to find something I might submit one day to join this fun posting some time in the future. In the meantime, please keep it comin’.
