Portraits of the Palette 2017

Ali Hasmut

Is this the golden age of painting at the Palette and Chisel?  It's pretty hard to top the artists of one hundred years ago.  But when considering our variety of good painting - we're looking pretty good.

"Portrait of a Wise Man"

Valerie Stanaszek

A scholar of both Torah and Karl Marx, Misha Livshulz, the model for both of the above portraits, is  indeed a wise man - as well as a good painter, sculptor, and, of course, handsome model.

But even more importantly - he has ventilated the coach house, repaired the kiln, built several modeling stands, and developed his own, unique recipe for sauerkraut.

Exhibit: Audrey Cramblit

Audrey has filled our two galleries with an extraordinary variety of ceramic,  bronze, and even oil painting.

There's something almost Scandinavian about much her work.

One of her best selling pieces

I am a soft touch for Classical ruins.

(our back yard is filling up with them)

I like the combination of statue and painting

A nice lively quick sketch

A perfect piece for the fire place
