"Hurricane Force" (Oil, 24" x 36" Nancy Wernersbach©2016) I was honored to receive a Silver Medal at the National Art League 86th Fall Members' Exhibition, Douglaston, NY. This scene of wind driven waves and blowing sand was painted from a photo taken the day before Hurricane Sandy struck Long Island, NY.
Some thoughts on Acquiring Artwork:
"When you buy local artists' work, you are benefitting from their creativity while supporting your community. Although only a few of us can afford the works of the great masters, most of us can afford the creative works of our local artists.
Take a few moments to look into the art you have collected. What part of you does each piece represent? Do you like what you see? If not, make it a priority to let it go and replace it with art that you really love. Your art, like everything else that surrounds you, is meant to lift and nurture you on a daily basis. Enjoy collecting art that reflects your goals and dreams."
