'A Piece of Me, oil by RK Schlueter

Oil on 12 x14" canvas.
Cats have dominated my oil paintings and mixed media artwork for fifteen years. This year marks a hight point in my cat painting career. This painting was recently sold at the HumCats event in August. The event was so successful that we have to do it again next year. Eighty pieces of cat art sold during a one week period. The libations bar occupied by Humboldt Spay and Neuter Network, netted $500. With 20% of artwork sales going to Hum Spay and 80% of the take going to artists, we succeeded in raising funds for kitties without diminishing the value of artists work. I'm stoked. Thanks for all who participated in whatever capacity, we needed each and everyone of you!

'Passion Rose' by Theresa Oats

Westerlands -through their vibrant colors and changing forms strike me as having an unbridled passion for life.  They burst in groups, each rose distinct from the other.  They become more interesting  each day as their petals change shape and reveal more color - even as they start to fall to the ground.
I painted these blossoms in oils on a 12x9 inch prepared wood panel.

"Poolside Sunbathing" by Andrew Daniel

"Poolside Sunbathing" by Andrew Daniel
10" x 14" oil on wood panel

A couple weeks ago, I went on a family vacation in the San Bernardino Mountains. We spent some time each day at the pool, with my wife soaking up the sunshine while I painted. It was a lot of fun piecing this composition together from the various people and objects. My wife and the life guard were nice enough to pose for me, while the swimmers were done from photos on my phone.

"Salt Marsh Trees" by Andrew Daniel

Wonders of technology! I'm out backpacking with my daughter and her friend's family near Bend, Oregon. Yet, it is still possible to post this with my phone! I painted this looking out at the salt marshes in the arcata marsh. This group of trees have been calling to me for several months, but I always thought the colors were too muted to make an interesting painting. Lately tho, I've been deliberately exploring muted colors in my work. They restrained color palette feels indicative of Humboldt, and when I paint them, they feels somehow more expressive.
