Art Available - Gallery 1

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.

Bloody House

Hi folks,

Some here will remember me.  I've been away on some writing adventures.  I was originally involved on numerous sites, and had to cut back to concentrate on my bread and butter, my published works.  Since I've been gone, I've sold numerous poems and short stories.  Add to this a few books I've had published recently as well as all of the Editing I've been doing on other writer's short stories and Novellas.  My book cover work is advancing too.…

Lake George 2012

Just back from our week at a cabin rented on Lake George.  Brought one primed board to paint, anticipating that it would take awhile.  I knew what I was going to do, and finished the first day. Had to find a Walmart with canvases, even though I hate painting on canvas and didn't have references for another painting.  The landscape is completely out of my comfort zone, and the centered flag bothers me, but there it is. Also did a lot of swimming and finished 4 books. Have to love vacation!…

About me

Hello, I just wanted to add a short summary about me as an artist. In December of 2011 I received my Associate's (Art: Drawing and Painting) Degree at OCC. I enjoy (mostly abstract & acrylic) painting, making crafts such as jewelry, decorations, scrap booking and handmade greeting cards. I enjoy using oil pastels and making sketches of faeries/fantasy art. I enjoy photography for fun, but I do not…

The Story of how the Delightful Devas are Made

The Delightful Devas came about in an interesting way.  Being a long time quilter, specializing in a technique called applique, I longed to break out and do something different.  So one day I just started drawing and these little beings appeared on the paper.  Then I decided to applique them from fabric, as you would for a quilt.

My husband caught sight of them and really wanted to do a…

About me.

I noticed that even though there is some basic information on each of our pages on, there still is some info I like sharing with people. Some about my art, some about me. So here it is.

I live (currently) in Syracuse (this might change to Cicero shortly), but I'm not from Syracuse. I grew up on the west coast. I've been drawing since I was little and the only art classes I've had were the few in preschool, middle school, and high school. I inherited my artistic…

New year

So, it's 2012. Where did 2011 go to? It's time to start getting ready for upcoming events. I worked on a few commissions in November and December, but didn't feel really inspired to do new drawings of my own. I figured while I'm in my New Years slump I'd update my CNY Artists page since it's been sitting here since November without any progress.

I uploaded a few of my drawings. Some were commissions, and some were my own. I didn't know what to put in the description line, so I left it…

Two New Websites!

After months of tweaking and learning, I have finally launched my website -  Judith Hand Watermedia

My motivation was my 50th (gasp!) college reunion last weekend.  I wanted to be able to hand out cards, so I could possibly get hits from all over the country - we'll see...


The other site was a real quickie - Art Mart

It took me two (long) days to…
