Social Climbers, Nan Griffin Acrylic and Oil on Canvas This painting brings to mind the attitude needed to be a social climber. The postures of the two figures are exuding self-confidence, self-assurance and of course attitude. The ladders on the bottom of the painting are symbolic of the steps used for climbing to the higher level. Raven with Attitude, Jim Liedtke Red Cedar/Steel Self-assured...without question. Possessed of a special elan…self-evident.Supremely confident… goes without saying. Meet Raven with an Attitude, raucous, bold, opinionated, never in doubt, the veritable cock-of-the walk. Move over, kids, let the big bird strut! Specifics of the piece: The wood is red cedar, the shell is abalone, the carving style is that of the Coastal Native American art form, the metal work is from Don Esser of Golden Hammer Forge. Since Eve Ate Apples, Much Depends On Dinner, Audrey Lundquist Paesel, Oil on Wood "Albeit all human history attestsThat happiness for man - the hungry sinner -Since Eve ate apples, much depends on dinner." This quote from Byron’s DON JUAN has always intrigued me. It makes me smile. I painted Eve, pregnant wearing a hat, and Adam donning a backward baseball cap, as a modern up to date, couple with attitude. Heavens, I imagine Eve alone must have had a great deal of attitude to offer Adam the apple. The rest is history.
