Do you like modern still life paintings?  Do you just love good art?  Either way, we have a real treat for you this month. Judy Prisoc is such an artist who lives and works in Gig Harbor, Washington.  

Her food paintings will make you absolutely hungry for more.  Her still life work is positioned so the focus of her work is clear, leaving you no doubt as to what inspires her for each particular painting. She has a beautiful, painterly way with oils which will leave you starved for more.

Decay is a huge part of her life. It isn’t something we often talk about, but Fiona Long has been exploring decay from an art perspective for years and finds there is still so much more to know. You would not think a nice English girl would be so enamored with something like decay, but Fiona isn’t your typical English girl.

This month we travel to Patagonia through the lens of photographer Sebastián Giannone. While Sebastián travels with a DSLR camera, every photo appearing in this month’s feature was shot with his cell phone! Technology has come a long way, but you still have to get out there. This is a truth that Sebastián embodies as he travels around Patagonia creating a vast array of images to share. It is my pleasure this month to present to you the travels and words of Sebastián Giannone!

As you look at Paul McMahan's watercolors, you cannot help but recognize the colorful influence of his coastal New England environment. The coastal colors and watery influences of maritime history and quaint small towns show up in each piece.

Artist of the Month: Dianne McNaughton

Serene, peaceful, calm and trans-portative are the words which pop into my head each time I see one of Dianne McNaughton’s paintings. She gathers a great deal of inspiration from the natural beauty found around her home in South Africa and her travels.

Lost in happiness, beauty, color, joy. That is how I feel when I dive into the art of Kim Rodeffer Funk, our Artist of the Month.  One look at these swaths of color, these fireflies of light, these feelings of deep artistic beauty, and you, too, will fall in love.

Cloudscapes

Perhaps the most magical of all nature's features, clouds are a gateway to dreaming. Remember when you were small, finding shapes in clouds, and then seeing them morph into something else within seconds? And then, if you're a parent, teaching that to your kids.

Artist of the Month: Jennifer R. Cook

You know the drill - scroll through social media sites, see what pops up. I don't really like the cat and dog photos, the gifs of people doing the same thing over and over again every half second. I look for beauty, creativity, originality. And each day, I am rewarded by artist Jennifer R. Cook.
