Dyptich...Triptych...and Quadriptych

Dyptich...Triptych...and Quadriptych

Northern California's master watercolor artist Christensen has taken his hyperrealistic watercolors to the next level again!  It is not enough for him to just paint a beyond photorealistic painting in one of the most difficult mediums which happens to be watercolor.  Instead Christensen continues to challenge himself and continues to show his collectors how talented he truly is.  First there was the triptych (three)...."Estate of Bliss" - realeased in October 2009.  After it's release it didn't take long for this original watercolor to sell at the highest priced for a Christensen original to that date.  There was no sticker shock when it...

Gail Chandler painting live at Gallery 1870 - Saturday, October 21st and Sunday, October 22nd

Contemporary Realism artist Gail Chandler will be painting live at Gallery 1870 inside the V Marketplace in Yountville on Saturday, October 21st and Sunday, October 27th. Napa Valley Painter Gail Chandler is a self-taught artist who launched directly into a successful art career in 2003. In Chandler’s oils she attempts to trigger a memory, a giggle and maybe even bring out the mischievously naughty side of all of us. Chandler finds the humor in life and translates it remarkably well through her paintings. Chandler’s work matches her quirky side. One could argue that her missed calling in life could have...

Artist Tom Swearingen's Roses of Resilience - For the Bay Fire Relief Fund

Beloved Gallery 1870 artist Tom Swearingen considers himself among the lucky.  His home and family are safe after the devastation of the Northern California Fires, but his heart is hurting for the many who have lost so much.  He explained that "donating art is the least I can do."  Tom Swearingen has launched the Santa Rosa - Roses of Resilience campaign to raise as much money as he can for the North Bay Fire Relief Fund. A message from Tom Swearingen: "Life has changed for most of Sonoma County (other places as well, but this is where I live).  I am painting to help...
