"Art touches the soul...art is communication...it reaches out from the canvas and passes through the eyes of the viewer right into his heart where it can leave an imprint of beauty that can make the spirit sing."

THANK YOU, FRIENDS, OLD...AND NEW!!

"ANCIENT VOICES" by Nina Baldwin, original acrylic with gold leaf and graphite
 
so many friends stopped by the studio tour Saturday and Sunday !!
 I was delighted to see and speak to every single one!! what fun!!
 sold a little...and then a little more! very successful...and had a ball!
 thank you, everybody, for making this event so special!!! great fun!!

This print seems to be a favorite of many...acrylic, gold leaf, graphite...
people enjoy analyzing it, trying to figure out what it is to them...
each person has his or her own interpretation...with abstract, all are right!!
...horses with riders, buffalos,
 a mother bird with her babies(my daughter was pregnant at the time), 
bears, a landscape...and more!  what is it to you?? 

I just realized that this is actually a reproduction of a reproduction!!!...
a photo of a giclee (a giclee is an excellent quality print made with the finest inks and paper available)
I still have the original...will have to try taking a photo of it so that I can compare the results!
Thanks again, all!!!

The ALAMEDA STUDIO TOUR Starts Tomorrow!

  "Santa Fe Muse" by Nina Baldwin, acrylic, original painting.

Well, here is that image, "Santa Fe Muse", finished...hopefully, the image is large enough for you to see at least some of the detail...I like the little circles and lines which make it feel a little surreal...also the orb-like clouds in the sky. 

Please join us for the studio tour tomorrow and Sunday...we would love to see you!
