Meet AGNV watercolor artist Cindy Worthington!

“I’m a lifelong Napa native and have spent my life here outside in our beautiful valley. I’m an avid hiker who is constantly stopping along the trail to find inspiration looking at rocks, plants and leaves. In my artwork I’ve tried to capture the fascination and appreciation I have with nature. I find my inspiration while geeking out on my rambles. I hope my view of nature inspires someone to get out and find some trails of their own. I love the medium of watercolors because of the softness and subtleties from colors and shades and is ideal for plein air painting in nature.”

Cindy is a more recent exhibitor at our gallery, and you can see her artwork there and on the AANV website and social media at the following links.

Meet AGNV artist photographer John Comisky!

“Originally the subjects that pulled my eye tended to be landscapes, tricks of the moment, and worlds within worlds – subjects of beauty and meaning hiding in the upholstery of the background.

Then wildlife entered my life, through my association with Napa Wildlife Rescue. Now as I travel, I try to capture the soul of both place and the lives lived there, narrated in the language of the eye. This led to my capture of “Whale 2” in Antarctica, which won the Smithsonian Magazine’s 18th Annual Photo Contest – Natural World Category, in April 2021.”

John is a long-time exhibitor at our gallery, and you can see his artwork there and on his website and social media at the following links.

Recent work from Jennifer Emerson

“Winding Through Redwoods”

Oil on canvas 2021, framed
24” x 24” x 2″

Jenny writes

The redwoods have a spiritual effect on me and create a sense of awe, like being in a cathedral.  They are specific to California and an icon of this state.

Jenny adds

The highway is such an important piece of the landscape in the USA, so I often paint pictures of landscapes as seen from a car.

John Comisky on Safari

Sunbeamed, photography, Canon 5D Mar III with 100-400 mm lens

I was on a photo safari in South Africa, when we spotted the remains of an impala up in a tree.   Leopards are the only big cats that are capable of carrying that much weight into a tree.  They do it to prevent losing their prey to scavengers.  The leopard was gone, but we knew it would be back to finish it, so we returned the next morning before dawn.  The Leopard was already in the tree eating.   After a while, it came down and we trailed it for a while, before it entered an area filled with thorn trees and bushes, with thorns as long as 7 inches, before settling down at a spot where it seemed comfortable.  The driver proceeded towards it, driving over trees and bushes. At times we had to dive down below the seat to avoid sweeping, barbed branches.  Once we were as close as practical, we stopped, and it was time to take pictures.  The sun was just coming over a rise, striking an area of the thicket yards away from the Leopard, but I guessed its movement would cause it to pass over the Leopard, if we waited where we were.  I convinced the other passengers it was worth the try.  They agreed to wait, and 30 minutes later the sunbeams began to hit the Leopard directly on the face and arm while the rest remained in shadow.  I got the shot I had hoped for.
