Online Art Gallery — Week 105

We begin our 3rd year of this feature with what may be a first: needlepoint. That’s more proof — not that any was needed — of the versatility and range of our hundreds of contributors.

As always, we appreciate everyone’s submissions. This gallery is open to all readers. Whatever your age and level of experience — professional or amateur, young or old. In every medium. On every topic.

All genres are encouraged. Watercolors, oils, charcoal, pen-and-ink, acrylics, lithographs, macramé, jewelry, sculpture, decoupage and (yes) needlepoint — whatever you’ve got, email it to dwoog@optonline.net. Share your work with the world!

The real world is not far from the minds of this week’s online gallery artists.

Brian Whelan paints for peace, Kathryn O’Reardon offers a thought-provoking acrylic work, and Eric Bosch provides a timely title to a photo taken in Westport. In a non-political vein, Amy Schneider takes note of several solar eruptions, 93 million miles away.
