Online Art Gallery #176

Is everyone on vacation?

After a summer of robust art activity, submissions were slim for this week’s online gallery.

Perhaps our artists are out on the water. Nearly half of our works this week show a nautical theme.

Of course, the quality remains high. And the subjects, wide-ranging.

With back to school near, we continue to welcome atercolors, oils, charcoal, pen-and-ink, acrylics, lithographs, collages, macramé, jewelry, sculpture, decoupage, needlepoint — whatever you’ve got.

“Three Masted Galleon in a Manischewitz Bottle.” Steve Stein explains, “I did this with my grandsons one Sunday afternoon. The boat is built outside the flat-sided wine bottle with the masts hinged back and down, to be pulled up by long threads after placement in the bottle. The hardest part is getting the green clay ocean to lie flat.”
