Birds in Motion {recent commission by Russell Gordon}

Russell Gordon recently finished two custom paintings for a client that will be displayed together, so they had to be painted in unison. Here are the finished paintings and a very cool time lapse video Russell Gordon created to see the process behind the work! Enjoy.

"Flash of Blue"
"Perching Rainbow"

Khom Loi by Mark Bailey and Floating Lantern Festival of Thailand

It is very interesting how a painting can come to be created, and also how it can lead us to stumble upon other inspiration. Recently Mark Bailey finished up the painting Khom Loi, depicting a Charleston Locale with these unique lanterns above the tables. Khom Loi is a term for fire lanterns... which led us to this wonderful video of the "Floating Lantern Festival" in Thailand. What a wonderful tradition!
