Life could have crawled out of the dark muck and evolved into the many different forms of life now around us. Or perhaps it was brought down from space in the suitcase of a merchant traveling between different worlds. The atoms that make up everything in the universe came from the surrounding stars that blew away fragments and dust that swirled into planet forming eddies. The wonderful thing is that everything in our existence, from rocks to plants are made up of the same type of atoms, they are just arranged in different ways. I like this view of the universe. It is what I think about while I am working on art.

"I'm a landscape painter working in oils, living on the North Coast of California.  I enjoy painting in gardens when I get the opportunity, and particularly like to include pots and statuary in the painting.  I painted this piece in my own small flower garden, and included my garden statue of St. Francis.  More information about me and images of my paintings can be seen on my web site: kathyoleary.com, and my blog:  kathyolearyart.blogspot.com"

I enjoy painting modern, colorful interpretations of nature. I’m inspired by my daily walks and the changes I observe from day to day. The birds, trees, plants, light and color that I see emerge later in the paintings I create. I am influenced by textile design, the connection between the physical and spiritual worlds, optical illusions, and the changing of the seasons. I use watercolor and acrylic paint, combining collage and texture with abstract forms and patterns. I also create monotypes when I have access to a printing press. Each painting or print has multiple layers of color to heighten contrasts and create an inner glow. I am inspired by the forms and patterns in my garden, my family and my pets- bits and pieces of my everyday life combining themselves in unique forms.

Donation 30%  

contact us to purchase

McVicker paints his landscapes directly on site in Eureka and the Loleta Valley. Writing in a catalogue essay, poet Bill Mohr observes: "No artist masters the unseen, but McVicker's portrayal of its strength in our existence is reassuring to those who wish to persist in search of hidden meanings, hidden proofs."
The self-taught artist has shown nationally and throughout California. In 1999 he completed a large mural commission in the Dining Room at the San Francisco Civic Center Courthouse. His work has been featured in Art & Antiques, Art of California, American Artist magazine and in the book, The Artist and the American Landscape (First Glance Books, 1998).

Sara Starr
"Three Tigers"
Retail value $250
Donation 20%

This high-fire tile is 6” by 8”, fired to Cone 10, and is suitable for outdoor installation or for kitchens and baths.

"This tiger tile is influenced by a recent visit I made to the Fairmont Hotel’s Cirque Room. The first bar to open in San Francisco following prohibition, it was decorated with murals painted by the Bruton sisters. Rather than place my tigers in a circus environment, I chose to put them in their natural environment, in hopes that art can help save tiger habitat.”
Sara has created commissioned work, such as kitchen murals, for homes, and art for Sequoia Park Zoo and other public spaces.

High-Fire Styles Tiles
by Sara Starr

Sara’s tile works draw from her background as a painter. She first paints designs to define areas on her tiles using a wax-resist technique called “cuerda seca,” which originated in 15th-century Spain. She then pours glazes to create distinct shapes. Her finished works often reflect the natural environment of Humboldt County – redwood trees, shore birds, and wildflowers are recurrent themes.

“Because of my lifelong love of felines (large and small), I am thrilled to be part of the Tiger! Auction for Panthera.org. This tile reflects a mother’s love for her cub and gives me hope that tigers will retain the habitat to continue to rear their young.”

Love of color is reflected in the vibrant glazes she achieves with selected glazes for high-fire tiles. All work is fired to Cone 10 and is suitable for outdoor installation or for kitchens and baths.

She has created commissioned work, such as kitchen murals, for homes, and art for Sequoia Park Zoo and other public spaces.

 I was in San Diego attending my granddaughter's graduation.  We were there for a few days.  While visiting and sight seeing, we were walking along the beach and  lo and behold, this young Great Blue flew in and started hunting for lunch.  He wasn't afraid of us so we figured this was one of his favorite spots for sand crabs amongst the rocks.

I came from a long line of bodacious, bawdy Southern women who considered creativity
self-indulgent and introspection peculiar. Breaking tradition, my idea of a rip-roaring time is communing with trees, kneeling in earth, hearing the song of marsh frogs as a holy choir. These days I have become so enamored with creativity that I want my doormat to read : I love you, now go away. I often consider food on a plate so visually sensuous that I can’t decide whether to paint it or eat it.
