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.

Thanks for the comment Peter. I do do more images like the Austere Figurine, well maybe not as good, because that is definitely one of my all time favorites that I have taken, but here is a link to all my other fashion/glamour images:

Fashion is my expertise I guess, but I just started taking nature and landscape images like that of the snowy wonderland. I'm slowly building up my nature portfolio for the direct purpose of having sellable images. It's really hard to sell fashion photographs, they are more commercial than fine art I guess.

Let me know what you think. Thanks!

I'm working on the pillows this week...and then we're headed to Buffalo this weekend. Once the mayhem is over I'll be able to focus a little better and start getting everything together we talked about on the phone :)

Ask the risk of being all bandwagony, I wrote a book about a vampire.  Though not your usual vampire.  It's more biological based - as in if vampires really existed, and weren't fantasy-filled magical creatures, what would they be like?  Could they be at all?  Could an ape evolved to hunt other apes - with that ape becoming specialized to hunt human apes.  That's the premise.  Who would they be and how would they live.  There's also murders, and car chases, and grand fight scenes, plus a little romance because, as I was once told, all stories are love stories.  That's the basic premise.  I tired to keep it more literature than plup fiction.  You can read excerpts on my blog -

Thanks for asking!  And if you check out any of the excerpts, please do let me know what you think.  Criticism is the best way to improve!

Hi Peter,
Yes , I am a lucky lady. It was an awesome trip.

I  tried to add my MP3 clip twice and couldn't figure it out?
Any help would be welcome.

How did the show go??

I am coming into Syracuse on May 11th for the day so if you need
someone to man the store on that day for a few hours, I'm your girl.
I will be coming in first thing in the AM so let me know it sometime that day would help.

Let me know,
Thanks, Ellen

I can't make it next Saturday to the library for the talk on the promotions of the Arts.

I would be great full if you can put a briefing of the event on this site for those that can't make it. I'm very interested in keeping involved as much as possible.

Thank you,

Carlene Maloney

Hi Peter, I sent message, a couple days ago, with CNY Woodturner info and meeting date this Tuesday. Also asked about pen club u mentioned.

Thought I would check to see if you recieved message or not. 

Didn't want you to think I had not responded to your question.

Maybe I am missing something? Site does not appear to show me a record of sent messages (Sent page like my regular email)?? So I was not sure if my message was or was not sent/got thru???

Hi Peter, yes you can use it, if it relates then you know the quandary studio life can be.

I have had many spaces rented, "Promised use of" but to have a separate space to call my own is a life's dream, just wish I were younger.

Thanks for creating this site.

Loneliness holds no rewards, even thou the artist may relish to be alone in his studio mastering dreams of grandeur, he has to step out to flourish in life.


Nice to meet you.

Hi Peter,

Just a quick note to let you know that the my page appearance page is not working.

Went in to do some more tweaks and try things out and it is showing odd colors(like purple) nothing that is in my page.  Just wanted you to know, I'll try again tomorrow.

Thanks for all that you are doing to help everyone,

I am happy to be a part of this site. I know that I haven't put my paintings on yet, but I will.

I loved looking at the paintings and will come to this site as often as I can. I guess I better get busy and put my paintings up.

Peter, Why can I not put any more than my 16 pictures up on my site?  Thanks, Maray Abraham
