Sunshine will be showing her pretty face at the Grand Opening of EYE ON ART Gallery, November 6. This is the first of three cow paintings coming in from UK painter, Sam Dolman. Sam has a great eye for cows and, of course, a great brush.

In preparation for the upcoming Grand Opening for the EYE ON ART Gallery Craig is sending two drawings and 3 new paintings. Craig is from Northeast Wisconsin, paints what he sees and in his own words...."I often choose the cow as a vessel for expression. As a ubiquitous creature of this landscape, the cow continually provides me with visual prompting. I am drawn to the animal's geometry, it's angular anatomy and it's close cut coat which reveals this form."
I am pleased to add a talented Indiana sculptor to the 3D mix of works at EYE ON ART Gallery. Tom develops his creative works from his studio outside of Columbus, Indiana. This work, Antique Automatic will be available for the Grand Opening, November 6. One of Tom's many honors was the invitation to exhibit at Indiana State Museum Exhibition of "Artists That Chose to Stay."

I thought it would be nice to see one of Harry Gold's sculptures in creative development. The drawing to the left shows the conceptual creation of the work and the base tricycle is to the right. Harry is a patina specialist and it will be interesting to see how the elements of the sculpture come together and see the final patina. You can see more about his work and patina samples on his website link in the right column.
