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 06880blog@gmail.com. Share your work with the world!

It never rains. But it pours.

Or, to put it in “06880” online art gallery terms: When the snow falls, lots of artists go to work.

Last week’s snowfall brought several submissions. So — for some reason — did non-weather subjects, including a trip to Tucson. We’ve got a full gallery this week: 14 works, ranging from nature to abstract, and from oil and charcoal to photography and wood carving.

Whatever your age and level of experience — professional or amateur, young or old — this gallery is open to you. In every medium.

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