Robert Walker...
...
Ink, resin & fabric on wood Signed verso The visual effect of Robert Walker’s work is both subtle and hypnotic. Approaching painting as a sculptor, Walker’s new work combines the usage of intricate bas-relief surfaces produced from multi-layers of segmented paint that are fused together, producing multi-colored images and topographical surface areas. Walker has long been a student of Buddhism and his abstract compositions are variations of traditional images used in Buddhist illustration. Robert Walker was born in Los Angeles where he lives and works today. He received his MFA from the University of California, Irvine and has shown extensively in the United States, Asia, and South East Asia....

Gorgeous, large, Buccelatti 18K white and yellow gold ring with opal and diamond. There is a tiny chip on the perimeter of the opal, but the stone can easily be replaced if this bothers you. However, it is NOT noticeable when worn since the fire of this stone camouflages it perfectly. I just wanted to mention it, so there was no surprise. It is currently a size 6, but the open back lends itself to adjustment up or down. It is a rare and magnificent ring. The opal measures 3/4" X 1/2"....

"Terrain XXII" by Meredith Pardue...
...
Acrylic, Oil Paint, Ink...
"Terrain XXII" is an original artwork in mixed media on panel, by artist Meredith Pardue. Framed. ARTIST STATEMENT I combine the random actions of painting with controlled, deliberate mark making to describe each form in my work, which often appears floral or plantlike in structure. The canvases are composed of organic forms that are similar to, and possibly even derivative of, those found in nature, but ultimately the paintings are a visual record of an unplanned dialog between myself and a blank canvas. Together the marks and forms create a visual language that reads as something unique to each viewer. I could say that I intimate a certain relationship between physical and psychological space in my work, because in a sense that is true. But my approach to making a painting is much more comfortable, intuitive, and personal than that. And so, the result of this visual investigation, the painting reflects that process. I am most interested in extracting singular experiences from life's endless cycles of growth and decay, and in transforming the public worlds of nature and human dynamic into a place of private knowledge....
