Hope by Ron Warford, 40' x 30 " Graphite on Black Board, Framed 
Mr. Warford's work was selected by the Smithsonian Institution for a national traveling exhibition in 1973. He was one of the initial founding and teaching members at the Folk Art Gallery in Syracuse. His work spings from his imagination and is masterfully executed. Tel (315) 391-5115 for more info or to purchase. One of the presidents of a local art guild referred to Ron's work as  "master works" for their power and quality.

Strength , by Ron Warford. 20 " X 30"  

Home is Where the Hearth Is by Jaws. This piece took 600 hours. Amazingly, to produce this the artist had to put the snowflakes  in first on a white fine piece of paper and then build everything around it. Think about it - this amazing work, and other pieces of the artists work can be seen at CNY Artists Gallery, which purchased this piece in 2013.

Hi Joyce...saw your work at the CNYartists gallery yesterday while submitting some of my artwork...I have to say I'm in love with your style.  Very beautiful work, do you mind my asking what medium you used on the pieces you have there?

Hi Joyce,  I'm sorry I missed you at the Sense of Drawing last weekend.  That was my first experience with the group, and I loved it.  I worked with Bill Benson - what a great teacher of drawing the figure!  I also worked with Juan Perdiguero - what a creative guy he is.  I may actually use the technique I invented in that session with my floral paintings.  It's so nice to see you here.

Thanks Joyce. I love your piece as well. Looking forward to seeing you in person. It seems this community has many familiar ties.
