The Hand Painting Series showcases a selection of the best images from my hand paintings. I worked with a variety of individuals to create three finished pieces: a photograph of their hand, a completed 11x14 canvas painting, then a digitally created pattern for use on clothing or other surface design pieces. These images are exhibited in this full color book with over 50 images from the series.

Completed in 1747, Mark Catesby's <i>Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands</i> was the first major illustrated publication on the flora and fauna of Britain's American colonies. Together with his <i>Hortus Britanno-Americanus</i> (1763), which detailed plant species that might be transplanted successfully to British soil, Catesby's <i>Natural History</i> exerted an important, though often overlooked, influence on the development of art, natural history, and scientific observation in the eighteenth century. <br />Inspired by a major traveling exhibition of Catesby's watercolor drawings from the Royal Library, Windsor Castle, this collection of interdisciplinary essays considers Catesby's endeavors as a naturalist-artist, scientific explorer, experimental horticulturist, ornamental gardener, and early environmental thinker in terms of the interests held by the various, overlapping communities in which he functioned--particularly as those interests related to the British colonial enterprise.<br />The contributors are David R. Brigham, Joyce E. Chaplin, Mark Laird, Amy R. W. Meyers, Therese O'Malley, and Margaret Beck Pritchard.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />[for catalog, in place of 3rd paragraph]<br />The contributors: <br />David R.

<SPAN STYLE= "" >Ashley Jackson – The Yorkshire Artist' contains a collection of paintings that have been personally chosen by the artist to bring together his personal memories and intimate reflections of the emotions and atmosphere that he has captured in each watercolour painting. As he explains, 'All artists paint what inspires them, what allows them to capture what they see with their eyes with their hands and heart. We all have differing inspirations, mediums and connections with our subject – mine is the Yorkshire Moors.' From the open moorland of Marsden Moor to the inhabited landscape of Whitby, this book brims with what Ashley does best; capturing the atmospheric skies and drama of the landscape. As Ashley explains, 'I have strived throughout my life to witness and portray every mood swing of nature as she takes a stand against all that the elements throw at her, whether that be rain, wind, snow or fire.' You will truly find Ashley Jackson and his 'Yorkshire Mistress', as he calls the Yorkshire landscape, laid bare in these stunning paintings.</SPAN>

Lucian Freud: Eyes Wide Open (Icons)

Phoebe Hoban, author of definitive biographies of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Alice Neel, now turns her attention to Lucian Freud, the grandson of Sigmund and one of the greatest painters England has produced. <I>Lucian Freud: Eyes Wide Open</I> is the first biography to assess Freud’s work and life, showing how the two converge. <P>In Hoban’s dramatic and fast-paced narrative, we follow Freud from his birthplace in Berlin to London, where he fled with his family in the 1930s, and then to Paris, where he mixed with Picasso and Giacometti. He led a dissolute life in Soho after the war, gambling and womanizing with fierce energy. He painted his wives nude, his children nude, himself nude. He married twice, had an uncountable number of children, and kept working through it all, painting everyone from close friend and rival Francis Bacon to Kate Moss and Queen Elizabeth. He sometimes spent years on a single painting, which could require hundreds of hours of sittings. However various his subjects, his intent was always the same: to find and reveal the character hidden within by means of his intense visual imagination.<P>Along with its startling biographical revelations, the great thrill of <I>Lucian Freud: Eyes Wide Open</I> is the way Hoban deconstructs the art itself—its influences, models, and technique—to show how Freud reproduced reality on the canvas while breaking down the illusion that what we see is real.
