Working out of his home studio, Hank has amassed over 200 paintings! He sketches from life or uses photographs. While most all artists use their hands to work the paintbrush, Hank uses his hands and fingers to manipulate the paint from the very beginning, saving him time and energy when first developing his paintings. If he changes his mind about the way things are going, one swoosh of his hands and presto a blank board to work with. Come and see how deftly Hank uses light in his paintings. His landscapes are familiar and encourage you to take a second and third look.
"I've been working with clay for 30-something years. My pottery is earthenware, thrown, and hand built; glazed and decorated including mugs and practical everyday items as well as goblet drums and traditional southern ugly-face jugs. I enjoy exploring the endless possibilities that clay offers. I try to translate my life experiences through my work."
A life long Vermont artist, Corliss is now painting on the iPhone and iPad, which has "opened up a new world for artists," she says. "The world is changing and artists now have a wonderful new canvas to create on." Corliss has translated her realistic style in oils to the new technologies. Corliss got an iPad at Small Dog Electronics the day it came out and was the first artist in the world to display an iPad painting on the internet. The iPad is a mobile studio; artists can now create without the toxic paints and mediums they have used for centuries. Her favorite painting app on the iPad is ArtStudio.
