Hope by Ron Warford, 40' x 30 " Graphite on Black Board, Framed $900
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"   $750.

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.


Dream Horse by M. Smart - $450

A Picture Worth 1,000 Words- European Art Paintings

Is a picture worth 1,000 words? That was the question 13-year-old John had when his 7th grade teacher challenged his language arts class to find a picture and describe it in 1,000 words. The project would count for 25 percent of the class grade.

The next challenge was to come up with a picture worthy of 1,000 words. That’s where I come in. I received an e-mail back a few weeks ago asking for permission to use my European art paintings, “
Colmar in Full Bloom” for the school project. I have to tell you, I was deeply touched and honored to think a 13-year-old boy I did not know had thought enough of one of my paintings to pick it for his school project.

At first thought, coming up with 1,000 words doesn’t seem to be a difficult thing to do but when digging deeper, it’s just words--no sentences, paragraphs or stories, just words. The project became quite an undertaking incorporating nouns, verbs, adjectives, colors and even a smattering of French to round off the list.

I realize now that without knowing it, when I am working on a painting a good part of those 1,000 words are floating around in my head, it’s part of an exhausting painting process. It’s also part of what bonds us as artists to our work and I am sure in the end John feels as close to this one painting as I do, for we both became very deeply involved with the scene while working on it.

Well done John, thank you so much for choosing my work and the periodic updates with your progress on the project.
