Laurie's Garden by Barbara Epstein Gruber

Another talented artist is my brother Bob's painting partner, Barbara Epstein Gruber. Barbara graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in painting and received her MFA from Brooklyn College. Her paintings and drawings are about light, color, air, touch and the experience of painting. They are painted directly from life. She has participated in numerous shows, been featured in many publications, won a number of awards and is gallery represented.

I love the ambiance of Laurie's Garden and feel that I could walk right into it. You can see more of Barbara's collection at American Paintings Online

Red Boat by Robert Knudsen

Red Boat

My brother, Bob, is a well known East Coast painter with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting from The Maryland Institute College of Art. He paints the American landscape directly from nature with the objective of conveying the experience of life, light and movement to the viewer. He has participated in many exhibitions and is gallery represented. Click the pic for a larger view.

I chose to feature Red Boat because it reminds me of the many happy times we spent at Deep Creek Lake in Western Maryland. You can see more of Bob's work at American Paintings Online

The envelope also bears a single butterfly in the lower left-hand corner.

Sam's Art

B. J. and Me

Sam is an extremely talented artist and the ACEO above is one example of his work. See his artistry at his Etsy Shop, B. J. and Me.

This is a print of a larger piece entitled "Groove-it". It is a tribute to the era of the sixties. As in most of my works, my dog, Baby-Jayne is in this painting. I decided to put her in the driver's seat of this painting, because she always likes to be in charge, but she is also floating around in a few more spots.
