Virtual Gallery Show – Far From Home

Saturday, May 23

Today’s Virtual Gallery Show features Azadeh Hoveyda.  Azzy works in oil and mixed media.

We, as humans, tend to tell stories, and mine happens to be on canvas. I am often impressed that the story I was trying to tell has different angles from other people’s points of view who see my paintings and I guess that’s the whole point. Each story has different sides and it all depends on how we look at it. –  Azzy

Virtual Gallery Show – A Moment in Time
Irina Grobman

Saturday, May 2

In anticipation of spring, sunshine and new life the show is a collection of memories from years past. All of these are painted from life and en plein air and each represent a special moment in time. Isn’t what life is anyways, ‘a moment in time’ ?   

My wish and hope is that we do not waste this precious time in isolation and emerge reborn with fresh perspective and purpose. View it as a gift not curse as is every life challenge.

Drawing – Taking a Line for a Walk

This week, RHGA members created small, spontaneous works using Paul Klee’s inspirational quote, ‘Drawing is the art of taking a line for a walk’.
Drawings were created using one continuous line and spending a maximum of 5 minutes on each drawing. Artist  were inspired by their pets, flowers (Spring is here!), still life and portraiture. What a great variety.
