THE OLYMPIC ART STUDIO
Finding life a most curious adventure, I've earnestly applied pen to paper..and brush to canvas.
Between my youth in Oregon's oak-covered hills and hollows..and current residence on Washington State's
Olympic Peninsula, my enduring love for the English language has been uniquely and colorfully expressed.
Because I've insistently pondered human nature, and persistently been an artist for more than 40 years,
I have found my own voice.
During the past decade, many of my artworks have been illuminations
of my written words. A rural free-thinker, my observations are
reined in and structured in rhyme..because as a great poet once
reflected, "Writing poetry
that doesn't rhyme is like playing tennis without a net." Whether I've written on a serious level, or composed snippets of nonsense--- reminiscent of the Victorian tradition, I've followed by visualing these in the languages of watercolors, pastels, pen and ink...and more recently, acrylics. Lately I've surprised myself by handpainting my verses verbatim, juxtaposing these with illustrations, and whimsically decorating large ceramic objects.
From my Olympic Art Studio, planted near the glorious Olympic
Mountains, you're invited to view my
virtual gallery's selection of original acrylics, limited edition giclee prints from pastels, art-poster calendars, and ceramics. In the near future, I'll also offer hand-assembled parlor portfolios---which combine poetry, reflections,
and illustrations. .....................Enjoy your visit!...Gael McNealy
