  • 20" x 20" x 2" oil on canvas About Runcie Tatnall: Tatnall's painterly realism lends its wry, sensitive eye to all kinds of subjects, from a world-weary bulldog to a shadowy boxer, to urban erosion, and then the seductive call of the sea. His paintings pull the viewers into a world evoking such painters as Hopper, the Ash Can school, and John Singer Sargent. Tatnall has an excellent ability to identify with his subjects and capture through efficient, yet precise gestures a strangeness of moment, a curious awkwardness, a dark humor that emanates through Americana. His pictures invite; they don't discourage.  Powerful composition and deft rendering allow viewers to drift in and out of the emotions and landscapes of the paintings, inviting viewers to create narratives for themselves. Tatnall trained in painting and illustration at the University of Delaware, the Art Students League in New York City, and received his MFA in painting from the University of Miami. He has been exhibiting nationally since 1995 including New York City, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Texas, and Miami. Tatnall recenty returned to Miami after six years as a fine art professor and head of the drawing area at Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas.

  • The power of eight sides come together as one in the breaking dawn. Boundless energy rising, this is the beginning of a new era. “Rising New Era” is the highlight in LIULI Crystal Art’s 2019 collection “Buoyed by Spring Light.” Made of lead crystal using pâte-de-verre (lost wax casting,) nine fish are depicted in various formations as they swim upward as one. In Mandarin, nine is homonymous with the word for long – here it symbolizes prolonged prosperity and longevity. The word for fish is homonymous with the word for abundance – here it symbolizes profusion year after year and a lifetime of fortune. The open circle in the base is where fortune gathers. It symbolizes the blessing of an inextinguishable life force. Sculpturally, the tails of the nine fish fan out like a flower, each petal spreads outward with organic energy. LIULI Crystal Art is committed to “continuously create art for the good of the heart,” and shares the vision with Oceana to protect the world’s oceans.

  • A vibrant rendition of California Corbina fish by Marianne Champlin, a Laguna Beach artist who works in oil, watercolor and egg tempera.  Ms. Champlin writes: “My art has evolved through several stages, which have generally paralleled my place of residence and travel.  I have lived in California, Texas, Wyoming and Hawaii. The dominate force in my art has been my impression and emotional response to these varied surroundings. My production relies on a technique and approach which springs from a woman’s viewpoint, emotion and the relationship to her surroundings. This is revealed in the subject choice, use of chosen medium, as well as, what is to be communicated to the viewer. I work in oil, watercolor and egg tempera depending on what is to be conveyed.  During my many years in North San Diego county I was able to paint on locations where early California artists worked. I was also very fortunate in my art training to study with advocates of the California style of painting.” Major Achievements:
