Vernazza Cinque, Terra Italy

All it takes is a slight change in temperature and that chill in the air makes me think of deep blue water, white beaches, and sunny skies.  When you cannot drop everything and leave town for your dream vacation, you can easily take a side trip and get lost in a Bruce White watercolor.

Bruce White takes his viewer to the edge of the water, where it is easy to get lost in the pounding surf. Being an avid traveler, he isn’t stingy with “dream-vacation” subject matter and keeps his collection interesting with exciting destinations.  It is easy to leave home and visit the Amalfi Coast, or the slopes of Colorado.  If you have ever been to these places, you can revisit anytime your mind begins to drift …..

We love having Bruce White’s watercolors at Hunter-Wolff Gallery because they add a bold splash of color and  help me think about sailing away on my next vacation plans.

Meet Bruce at his first Hunter-Wolff Gallery Opening, Friday, December 2 from 5-8 pm.

California Memory by Clifford T. Bailey

California Memory by Clifford T. Bailey

Everyone loves a pat on the back for a great effort. In the art world, awards are meaningful not only to the recipient but to collectors too. Collectors especially like to keep “score” of the accomplishments by their favorite artists.  It adds to the provenance and value for artwork.

Among the 30-some artists at Hunter-Wolff Gallery there are hundreds of awards.  Some of our more experienced artists have received dozens and dozens over the course of their career.  Clifford T. Bailey, for example, continues to receive awards even after nearly 40 years of a proven track record. One might think, “does it really matter at this stage?”  Absolutely.  Validation is always important and shows different generations value his work and the measurement for excellence is as important today as it was yesterday.

Clifford just received the welcomed news from the Miniature Art Society of Florida that all his entries for the upcoming 37th Annual International Miniature Art Show were accepted and that he won First Place in the Landscape category.  The show will be held January 15 – February 5 2012. Because this particular show is one of the biggest and best miniature shows in the country, competition comes from all over the world.

Congratulations Clifford!  Your work is tops in my book too.

It only takes 30 minutes in a day to make life more enjoyable. Set aside 30 minutes every day and play with your kids or your dog outside. Enjoy the fresh air with some physical activity like walking, cycling, hiking, or exercising to boost your self-esteem and feel alive. Be sure to take time to relax after a busy day by reading a book, scheduling a vacation, enjoying and learning about original art. After your workweek is over, once a month, go to a great event like ArtWalk in Old Colorado City. It is free, relaxing and there are always fabulous people to meet! This month, November 4, you can get a jump on your holiday shopping and see some spectacular art, fine jewelry, and learn about new techniques. Get started with: 1. Play Outside and Exercise 2. Book A Vacation 3. Read A Book 4. Learn and Buy Art 5. Clear Away Clutter on Your Desk 6. Flip Your Mattress 8. Meet An Artist at ArtWalk
