Painterly or contemporary is the flavor of her work. Sonya__™s artwork can be found in private collections around the world as well as displayed in Dayton Ohio… Continue reading… 0 comments

Before posting in my gallery and here at the ArtID site have for some time "previewed" the work to get honest opinions. Not all are as favorable and consider these to develop my techniques and composition for work. Of course never post the negative critiques (smile) and work hard to honor the favorable ones. Here are two comments on this work. by Chipka on Jul 12, 2010 5:14:59 pm [homepage] This is quite marvelous! I love the textured blue above the waterfall. I've just seen the repost of this piece and I have to say that I like both posts for differing reasons. This is quite sensitive, as is it's companion post (and others I've seen thumbnails to but have not yet commented on… Continue reading… 0 comments

Under the Sea

Topics: Mary Sonya Conti, fish, print, seascape, style, sunlight, turtle, under water, water

Mixed media of acrylic inks, watercolor and pastel. This piece is done on "hot press" watercolor paper. Each month there are themes chosen from a group artists site. This month's free theme was Under the Sea. Having started this piece with acrylic inks several months ago; it's been sitting there waiting to be developed. Knew could see clearly a fish hidden in the coral. As the announcement came pulled this out and felt more confident in proceeding with the composition. Textures suggested coral and seaweed floating beneath the surface. Use of pen and ink stems from the last workshop attended with Gerald Brommer as instructor at the Kanuga Conference 2010. Will be featured piece at the Cannery for May First Friday. Contact me if you wish to purchase… Continue reading… 0 comments

Turbulence

Topics: Mary Sonya Conti, Prints, sunlight, water, waterfall

watercolor on illustration board, unframed Horseshoe Falls from the Canadian Side This month's theme Is Turbulence. The power and strength of the rushing waters are viewed from the top of the Horseshoe Falls in Canada. Standing there with the water's mist and turbulent "fall" over the opening spellbinds ones. Found it very difficult to draw away from the edge. Water is one of our primary elements in living. Am contemplating putting a series together of these elements. Fire, Water, Air and Earth. This is also a departure from the series of winter scenes that start the New Year off with. Change feels right… Continue reading… 0 comments

We socially network, share, twitter, face book, and post. These have become popular vehicles to market our art. But are we really hitting home with these short sound bites? Do folks want more; do they get bored and click away? Thank you ARTID.COM and to all those who work so hard in making this both a resource and gallery that represents positively for the artist in me. You give me voice and stroke; my thanks at times are not enough. Also belong to another site: http://www.theartistchallenge.com where started this posting early this morn as the snow fell softly o're my world.

Ascension

Topics: Mary Sonya Conti, Yupo, angels, art, expressionism, seascape, spiritual artwork

This particular work is now "on hold" What does that mean? If you truly understand the work it is meant to be yours. A layaway plan made it possible for it to go home with them (hopefully by the holidays). What is most important; it is going to the one meant to have it with unconditional love. Certain artwork that bears a stroke becomes a part of you and we find it very difficult to turn loose of that work. Had put off offering this piece until Late September. Even then thought will wait one more week. In answer, it is being purchased by the one had hoped would understand the need. For this I give thanks for the answer to a prayer… Continue reading… 1 comment

You just never know who's looking at your art folks. Your latest piece just might touch upon a vivid memory of another (we are all connected). My Indriel Blue and The Twelve are now in the hands of who they were created for. No at the time did not know this beautiful person. She received them couple of weeks ago and took the time to send me a letter of appreciation. Do you like whats on your easel now? ...… Continue reading… 0 comments

Belong to a website of artist around the world. www.theartistchallenge.com Each month a theme is discussed and then voted on. The artwork submitted for that month is then put in a gallery online. Vikki North and Michael Edens (both exceptional artists) came up with Sun Art which was submitted to the CBS Show this month. Now that we are each in the Shows Library; our artwork has the opportunity to be featured on any given Sunday (we are notified in advance). Please take the time to go over and take a peak at the work. Posting will be this Friday. Might also want to join us each month. Vikki was selected last year for her Sun Art. Go to http://redchair-vikkisblog.blogspot.com and look to the right for her National exposure… Continue reading… 1 comment
