A Thanksgiving painting. McMichael finished this painting early, early this Thanksgiving morning. When his significant other saw it, she named it “The Collection”. She said it was a metaphor for all our lives. As we go through life, we collect things, some good, some challenges, some joyous, some sad, and like these rocks some times are smooth and some are rough, It is this collection of life’s experiences that make us what we are this Thanksgiving. Painting by Garry McMichael -
12 x 36 - Acrylic on Canvas

To develop the concept for each painting, Bradley read the libretto to learn the story of each opera. Each artwork is
a storytelling of the action of the opera in a single composition. It is so interesting to see what Bradley chose to use to represent the whole opera in a single painting! The watercolors are held together by using a linear design quality and juxtaposing the intensity of color. The opera painting below is La Rondine.

Henryk Ptasiewicz just finished a three week artist -in-residency program in Steelville, MO. He was invited to Steelville High School to teach the students drawing. He was to do watercolors and landscapes for the town of Steelville but they loved his portraits so much he wound up doing all these custom oil portraits. He also does pet portraits and house portraits. While he was in Steelville, he received a commission to do the cover of the album for Rusty Young, an former member of Poco. What an honor!!!
