Showcased artist Nata Romeo

Award winning artist, Nata Romeo is currently working on her “Tree Series” where she anthropomorphically creates tree and human. Her thought provoking paintings bring wonderment to the viewer, suggesting if trees were human, just what might they have seen in their long life spans.

I find this artist a natural when it comes to illustrating books for children as she brings out the child in all of us. Nata Romeo is a free-lance artist, she welcomes commissioned services for book illustrating, as well as custom paintings. Lean more at Nata Romeo's blog.

She is an Official member of SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators).

Thank you Nata for allowing me to share your wonderful work!

The Canyon Suite of Georgia O'Keefe

Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art & Design . Dana Self . Universe

This is a gem of a book. For all of the Georgia O'keefe fans, I highly suggest this little treasure.

Until very recently, an extraordinary and important series of Georgia O'Keefe's paintings was unknown even to her most ardent admirers. Rediscovered in 1987, the twenty-eight watercolors, now known as the Canyon Suite, shed light on a seminal period of the artist's life and early career.

In addition to being a turning point in O'Keefe's painting style, these watercolors are also among the first abstract works of any American artist. They are at once a stirring vision of the light, landscape, and scale of the plains of the Southwest and an intimate emotional tableau - in turns majestic and hauntingly vast. Accompanying these paintings are excerpts from the writings of such authors and artists as Wassily Kandinsky and Arthur Wesley Dow
