Reflections and all, this shot is of a print created by local photographer Richard Hart. On January 14th he was part of a show at A Different Path Gallery (Opening). He makes his own candles and photographs them as they burn creating gorgeous digital prints. That night he lit some candles and encouraged people to photograph them....we were not there long enough for them to get really drippy, but here are a few of my shots.

When we moved to our farm in 1981, a young family lived next door in what used to be the tenant house to our property. There were three girls and one of them turned out to be quite an artist! Her name is Julie Tabbitas Moore and this is a fabulous example of her work.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of seeing this beautiful painting by my friend Brenda (we were at her house for dinner). These are three of the horses from our farm! She captured them just right. As she reads my blog regularly, there are times when she grabs shots and paints them...ok with me, she does beautiful work.

Look at what I got in my email...a beautiful watercolor of our windmill. It was sent by my friend Brenda Cretney. A few years ago she was in my class and has since moved on...now she is a member of the Rochester Art Club and as you can see, is very accomplished. This is a strong example of good composition and technique. That's what happens when you are willing to paint everyday. Thanks Brenda!

It takes a lot of time and money to start a new gallery.
But that didn't hold back Kathy Weston and her husband Stewart. She is an artist and he is a professor in the Biology Department at the college.
There are three parts to A Different Path. They started off with a shop...most of the inventory gathered from local artists.
|Unique and the kind of items I would have in our house.|
|This night light for example....it has to be my first purchase.|
There are also some socks that I need to buy...those mismatched hand knit kind.
The second part is the gallery itself. It made it's debut with work from the Arena Group.
This was one of the artists. And she was wearing a pair of those socks I want!
Even to they were still working on the facade of the building, the show went on as planned.
The majority of the work is now complete (and done with great integrity I might add) and they are ready to go out to phase three. Preparing studio space on the second floor.
We are fortunate to have a gallery of this quality in our little village.

This piece is unlike anything I have ever seen. My friend Andrea (horse pal, Glen Darach Farm) moved here from England over 20 years ago. Her sister Helen now lives in Scotland and came over for a month long visit ... bringing this birthday present to Andrea. It is made of felted fabrics and depicts Andrea's house. A lot of effort went into this...Helen did a great job!

I started "doinart" when I was introduced to Wanda's Art Blog. After I sent her about 60 photographs to be used whenever, she posted 5 or 6....subject matter "cats." These are the interpretations. What a fun concept...select one of the photos and draw or paint it. If you would like to participate, check out http://watercolorsbywanda.blogspot.com
