Another Naples Art Festival


Artist Debbie Marconi is outgoing and funny.
Debbie's paintings are -- surprise! -- colorful and funny.


Sculptor Peter Rujuwa is from Zimbabwe, now living in Indianapolis.
He carves both abstract forms and animals
from serpentine stone.


Lynn Hardesty makes colorful 
cloissone enamel jewelry.


Anastasia Khabirova Musick is from Russia but currently lives
in Mississippi.  Many of the paintings she showed were
on an orange-brown spectrum.


Vermont-based artist Edward Loedding displayed
paintings from his white portfolio.

I think we see some of these same people up here in October when we have our fall festival. Great fun. Great portraits. I think I'm going to check out Russia one of these days.

The 'portrait artist' in you has gone crazy-busy. Don't stop.

Debbie certainly looks like she would be fun to know. This is a great group of artist's portraits. I especially like the paintings in the bottom photo.

Oh boy, never let me loose at such an event... Love cloisonné, we don't see much of it anymore.

I like the last two portraits the best. The artists fit their work so well.

This is a fine collection of artist portraits. I'm impressed.

Randy said...

The flowers in the last shot sort of remind me of Georgia O'Keeffe.

Joan Perry said...

Those white paintings are pretty amazing, as is your photography of course!

Kay said...

Looks like a great festival - quality work. Loedding's work reminds me to Georgia O'Keeffe, too, though his has a photographic quality to it.
Very nice series of portraits. It's looking like you're finding people pretty irresistible these days and have no shortage of good subjects.
