Featured Artist – Sheryl Luxenburg

Sheryl Luxenburg is a Canadian hyperrealist painter based in Ottawa who uses watercolour on paper and acrylic on linen with airbrush and regular brush to capture ultra realistic subject matter. The flattened depiction of space revealed in her paintings is so hard to distinguish from reality, especially when viewed online, that many scroll over her hand painted work thinking they are photographs. Although Luxenburg’s technical skills are impeccable, it is most important to her that the viewer identifies with her subject matter and finds the soul in her artwork.

Featured Artist – Crista Bromley

Crista Goble Bromley is an award-winning artist from the Texas Hill Country. She works primarily in oils but is also accomplished in watercolor, acrylic and pastels. As a descendant of noted artists and musicians she was surrounded by art and music since birth. She also studied fine arts at Victoria College and the University of Texas at Austin. While much of her early career focused on portraiture her interests expanded over the years and her subjects also include landscapes, animal portraiture, still life and historical representation. Most of her paintings are traditional to realism with a nod toward the highly detailed work of hyper-realism. According to Bromley, portraiture still holds a special place in her heart, noting, “I strive to make my portraits more than just a reflection of the person or animal. I want to see the character of the subject in the artwork. Whether it is a person or an animal I want their personality shine to through. That is the real satisfaction in portraiture.” While she loves portraiture she also enjoys the challenges of other subject matter as well. “I love to take a blank canvas and watch something grow on it. The process seems to have a life of its own,” she says. Bromley has been recognized by a number of national and international galleries. She currently has historical representations hanging in governmental buildings across Texas. For more information on her awards go online to www.cgbfinearts.com and click on the Featured Art link.

Merry Jo Whiting-Carter – Art Competition

Artist Portfolio Magazine’s 10 Art Competition Merry Jo Whiting-Carter – Portland, OR Instagram In my portraits I like to capture the more whimsical, dreamy, yet obscure and alternative perception of the human face.
