Saddling Up 12x16 Oil by Howard Friedland HM.jpg

  Saddling Up by Howard Friedland

Several years ago, we organized a

What an incredible trip!
It was packed full of exciting landscapes to paint.
Everyday was a new experience.
Even the daily loading up of the horses created delightful subject matter.

This painting received

"Best of Show for Signature Members in 2007"

at the Central Regional Oil Painters of America Show.

From Her Balcony
by Susan Blackwood
24 x 30 Oil

Susan often takes artists to France to study the light and paint the villages.
This painting was produced back home in the studio from photos taken
in Vence, Provence, France.
The cat, so easily enjoying the view from the balcony, was gently protected by the lady that loves her.

This kind lady invited us into her home to meet her cat.
