NOVEMBER 2020 EXHIBIT
Below are the artworks from the April 2020 exhibit. To see the current exhibit please click here.
I love the personalities of these crazy creatures, so vulnerable to mans interference though.
Many become victims of abuse in tourism or illegal pet trade
Populations in South & Central America are declining as they struggle to adapt to living closer to people.
Inspired by @costaricaanimalrescuecenter_
And also @slothconservation
who are working with locals to find sustainable solutions within the communities.
Such as sloth crossings aiding their travel above roads.
Check them out especially if you are planning a trip to see sloths.
Be a responsible tourist!

Title: What are these flames to you?
Artist: Gina Carranza
Is it rage? Joy? inspiration? Pain?
Emotional dysregulation is a symptom of complex PTSD….This came out as a result of all the emotions I was feeling and I didn’t know how to deal with them. They felt like they were consuming me,and I need to channel it out.
Title: Tinker bell (under my mushroom umbrella)
Artist: Pigi Glarou
I combined several images from references to create this drawing with the so cute Tinker bell resting at a favorite place of hers.. And what could be better for a fairy than resting under a large mushroom? The products I used were markers and color pencils.
Title: Beach sunset
Artist: Lynda Bridges
The fifth watercolour in the series of ‘paintings for a group of friends’. In these uncertain times with local lockdowns we can still re-visit those beautiful places and treasured memories.
This is for a friend who loves the beach. I’m unsure where it is but what a great place to sit and watch the sun go down!
Title: Monarch and Milkweed
Artist: Julie Peterson Shea

I grew up spending most of my long summer days outside. Catching butterflies, making dandelion chains, and playing in the sprinkler with my brothers. For me seeing butterflies brings back memories of my childhood. For the last few years, I have made a point of growing milkweed to attract Monarch butterflies, along with other plants that are favorites of other types of these beautiful insects. In this illustration, I experimented with using more and new colors.
Title: My Friends mom
Artist: Maria Gehrke
Other Links: Shop
As the start of a 100 portrait series, I decided to paint my lovely friend’s late mother who sadly passed just this month.
Although it is the first in my process of becoming better at portraits, I hope I still did her justice. I hope this can give my dear friend joy and some comfort in her grief. I hear her mom was the sweetest and most loving person you could ever meet.
I have spend more time on this than what I had planned for the portraits, but due to the importance I wanted to do a good job. I am hoping to get faster and more accurate with the 100 portrait challenge, which will definitely take much longer than 100 days.
