Celebration of Fine Art


The Celebration of Fine Art is going on again in Scottsdale and I went yesterday to check out this year's artwork.  Wow, what a selection.  I talked to several artist's I've grown to know over the years and I admired some fantastic works.  The painting of a white rose is the work of James McGulpin who's work just stunned me the very first time I visited this event.  He paints the most realistic fruit in equally realistic glass bowls.  I remember being awe struck the first time I saw his work.  He also paints simply gorgeous flowers like this white rose.  If you are interested in the show, it is open every day from January 12 through March 24th.  You can visit their site here.  The site has some great photos of the inside of the gallery.

Oh How wonderful!
I don't know for the size of it if it is not difficult to have it placed in a smaller space.

I'm always in awe of talent like this Sharon. The rose painting is exquisite. Good link too, the art gallery looks much used and loved.

Thanks for this link today. I REALLY need these today, after 33 inches overnight. Sheeeeeesh!

I like the light in this painting. It's just how that rose would react to the camera.

I'm surprised they let you take pictures. A lot of the artists at our art fairs don't want anyone taking pictures of their work.

We've been going to that show for years. It is sensational. And it's always good to ask permission before photographing an artist's work.

I could happily live with this piece on my wall!

What a painting, you would almost say it is silk.

What a beautiful painting. I like the different shades of color.

This seems super-realistic, more realistic than realism.
