Our Art of the Day

Art Created Pre-Quarantine but Posted to Raise Spirits During the 2020 Quarantine

Art of the Day, Day 19: “The Season Tree,” Linda “Rainbow” Westlund, who adds this quote from Gibran: “If you must measure time into seasons, let each season encircle all seasons, and let today embrace the past with remembrance and the future with longing.” Oil on canvas, 1983, prints available!

Art of the Day, Day 18: “Myan” by artist Rusty Leach, who has spent many days in the past at The Millet House. Presently our doors are shut, of course, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But we will see Rusty again sometime.

Art of the Day, Day 12: “Out Numbered” by Heather Smith-Gearns. Heather is one of the funniest, wittiest and downright nicest people ever. She can make us all laugh with a perfectly straight face. At times her humor escapes into her art!

March 26 Art of the Day, Day 6: “Balancing the Circus of Confusion” by artist Toni Miller. Life is confusing and may feel like a circus. Our little clown, though, finds balance in the midst of chaos.

March 25: Art of the Day, Day 5. “Dazed Lights,” by a young artist who goes by R.S. Mardina. She explains that the painting illustrates a circus acrobat focusing on performing in spite of the bright lights: confusion yes, but total focus on what must be done in spite of confusion.

March 24: Art of the Day, Day 4! A wonderful tile by artist Jaime Glasser. This one is titled “Turn” and yes we are all turning at the moment, turning in new directions.

March 23: Art of the Day, day 3 of many. Artist Vanessa Ortiz Zapata is inspired by the incredible beauty of the desert. She spends time there almost every day, and the images that result from this immersion in nature are spectacular. Here, a recent work depicting the Superstition Mountains.

Vanessa Ortiz Superstitions

 

March 22 Art of the day! Skye Day’s prescient painting, “Screen Door,” is from a day in which the news led her to feel she could not bear to open her door. When she finally did, she left the screen door closed. You may be able to relate.

March 21: Beginning the daily art post with the incomparable Liza Bell, an established and well-known Scottsdale artist – and our friend and supporter. Liza has gifted us with a full set of her artist-enhanced Angels series. The Millet House plans to feature them in our December Art Collective show, which will take place in one way or another, probably without the planned food truck – but who knows! Anyway, here’s a sneak peek at one in the series. May Liza’s angels bring you a moment of peace and joy.
