Fall Wall Decor, “One Beautiful Sunflower

Last week, I pulled out of the soil the last of the tall Sunflowers, this year. Wind storms had damaged many– the flush of fall bees on Sunflowers didn’t really happen this year. But this image reminds me of how gloriously beautiful this whole scene with bees and Sunflowers is.

Here is another look at an interior that uses this image to display the Sunflower Bee Dance.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– The season has passed. Many months will come and go until this kind of image is recreated. And yet, we are inclined, are we not, to hold on to those images that sustain us. I didn’t realize it at the time, but this sort of imagery, this glorious Sunflower plant is one that captures some essence of ‘the life force’ in action. Through the cold months, the seasons just ahead, I will hold it in my memory. It sustains me. This is new, and I am so glad the bees have brought this to my attention. Hold on to those glorious images that sustain, I like this idea a whole lot.

Fall Wall Decor, “God Bless America” Americana Wall Decor

Yes, it arrived in the mail via USPS just a few days ago, a first for me. This poster, God Bless America, part of my Americana Poster Collection, is printed on metal. It is a formidable presentation as I suspected it would be. I have been experimenting with metal prints in recent years, and this is one more. The size of this metal print is 24″ x 18″, and it comes very well packaged and presented, as would be the case if you were to order anything remotely similar from George Delany Art.

God Bless America,” printed on metal, from George Delany Art

As you see below, the mounting structure is also metal. The print comes read to hang. Quality materials all the way. A very unusual addition to any collection of Americana Art.

Metal structure, well constructed, backs up the God Bless America Poster from George Delany Art

Below you see the full image as the Americana Poster is lifted from the vendor’s package. Yes, I have to get accustomed to this metal print. The weight is substantial, the poster itself has a certain simple presence about it consistent with all the images in this Who We Are collection I first designed in response to the events of 9.11.01. The Collection is included in the Library of Congress‘ permanent collection.

The full God Bless America Poster just out of the box.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– Don’t you feel the need to stretch? After awhile you know how to do the things you do…so how to grow, to keep life interesting, to meet new challenges? Stretch. A good stretch is important. What is the verse? Stretch, just beyond your reach, something like this. In this instance, I took a little bit of a chance and applied my design imagery to a material I have not seen in the same way, before. And I like the result. I will be testing other images using this same medium in the immediate future. So take today….and see if a good stretch, just beyond your reach, makes any sense at all.

Fall Wall DecorStatue in Woods

For each of us…there is a time to prepare. We have summer behind, winter ahead– so there is something particularly compelling about this lovely fall image. I am still struck by the brazen beauty in it.

“Statue in Woods”, photo print from George Delany Art

There we were, about to enter an art museum in Maine one fall day, when out of the woods she came to me. Here is “Statue in the Woods,” my name– not the museum’s. Very powerful image, isn’t it? Given both the season and our heritage, this image fills in a missing understanding of certain reality. You can see other fall-themed images at George Delany Art. Please, check them out.

Bedroom setting, see Photos at George Delany Art

Days are warm, mid-seventies, nights are cool, down near forty, once or twice, below. The animals take note. Hummingbirds are gone. Winter birds arrive. Honey Bees are fixated every day on their winter stores, hurt by the recent drought of a month or more. Winter bees are being born. They will never know the splendor of a spring nectar flow. But they will move the hive toward Spring. This is their function. It is miraculous, as so much about Honey Bees is. Amidst the continued pandemic, economic trial and uncertainty, national politics, geopolitical tensions and forbearance a national trait every day…consider “changing up,” your wall art collection by purchasing an art print — (have you ever purchased an art print?), perhaps investigate GeorgeDelanyArt and do try two neat features on my site you may enjoy:

The first– WALL Preview, a capability that visualizes your art selection in your specifications as seen in different settings; living room, bedroom, sitting room, conference room, these sorts of things, as referenced, above.

Check out the several categories of original art and prints on my site; Instagram pixphotospaintingsillustrationslimited editionsoriginal painted works and Americana posters.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– A cliche, “You reap what you sow.” So often, we learn this the hard way, don’t we? Birds are preparing. Honey Bees are preparing. We must prepare. Are we preparing? I don’t think so…not so well, anymore. Just look at our environment as but one painful example. The consequences for not doing so…we often fail to consider–and pay the price. Whatever it is to be, one way or another…we will pay it in the end. So take these days as an opportunity to prepare. Like we Boy Scouts used to say, “Be Prepared.” How outmoded, you say? But how refreshingly stark in its imperative– and correct, too. Let’s get prepared. It’s simple. It’s real. It’s time.

The whole series was accorded a Gold Award by Graphis Poster Annual. Later, the collection was added to the Library of Congress, a true honor. Give it a shot, sign up today, September 30 is the deadline. Only one winner will be randomly drawn…October 1. Winner gets to pick…paper print, or metal!

Wrapping up my summer painting stint...pictured here, an event that occurred only a couple of days ago…been working on this painting for a couple of months, very nearly complete, I am on my way to my neighbor’s house to show her this work. She is 98 years old. This work has been inspired by my neighbor and her beautiful farm, one I’ve come to know well during the time we’ve lived so fortunately as her neighbor.

The painting I am calling, “Farmer,” for this reason. My neighbor has over the years helped me understand what it is to be a farmer, period. To say she is an “amazing woman,” is an understatement, believe me.

This is also a first, of sorts. I normally don’t blog about much that is not posted on George Delany Art. Prints of this painting will be available soon, but are not, at present. Before October is out this image will be added to the painting collections and a link will be made available.

“Farmer,” by George Delany, look for prints available on George Delany Art, soon.

Work selfie, after a painting session…still some video clips to wrap up. The painting is oil-on-canvas, 48″ x 36″– why has it taken me so long to cover this topic? If you believe in Sacred Spaces and Places, then understand, this is one for me, this farm.

Artist at work, “Farmer,” underway, oil-on-canvas, summer tumultuous 2020

Summer ends, here we are on the cusp of Fall, 2020. On this late September day…temperatures are crisp, will be near forty degrees tonight; honey-bees have had by my observation a very busy day taking pollen into their hives in preparation for the cold seasons just ahead. There are not yet too many colored leaves around and about, but there are a few. The garden is a bit shabby, it too, has reached its peak and is responding to diminishing light and falling temps. See my art site for other fall, wall-art possibilities.

Here she is, my friend and “Farmer” neighbor with my painting…links to come.

As the season turns, amidst the continued pandemic, economic trial and uncertainty, national politics, geopolitical tensions and national forbearance present every day, consider “changing up,” your wall art collection by purchasing an art print — (have you ever purchased an art print?), perhaps investigate GeorgeDelanyArt and do try two neat features on my site you may enjoy:

The first– WALL Preview, a capability that visualizes your art selection in your specifications as seen in different settings; living room, bedroom, sitting room, conference room, these sorts of things, as referenced, above.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– What a glorious late summer day, today. Honestly, I have no business advice to offer except as my glee-club instructor used to say to all of us before a big concert, “Savor it.” Today is a day to savor. I show my neighbor my new painting. She savors it. I savor it. We savor it. There is nothing more important than to savor what you are challenged by and love, right? This is my business advice, pretty much every day– so Linked In won’t be too happy to hear this, but it’s still true. Thank you for your interest in my creative efforts. New “Farmer” prints to come, shortly!

Summer Art, “American Revival” Graphic Print

Today is a day unlike any other in our lives, in my life. We recall, most of us, exactly what we were doing and where…on this day in 2001. Here is the best antidote to the tragedy that marked that day when so many were deliberately targeted, and so many more worked to save all who were in peril. No “Thank you for your service,” is really adequate, is it? But to come together as a country, to revive our institutions, to carry on in the traditions our forefathers would have supported, this strikes me as an excellent response. “American Revival” is one of a series that was undertaken after the tragic events of this day, all those years ago.

American Revival,” posted September 11, 2020

The original series was titled, “Who We Are,” and attempted to capture our heritage in a manner that would guide and inspire us into the future based on the ideals for which our forefathers and mothers were willing to die, and did. That first series won a Gold Award from Graphis Poster Annual. Later, the collection was accepted in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress. These image utilized the American flag that flew outside this house, at the time. The Star-Spangled Banner was the first verse among seven I selected to make the point.

American Revival,” print from the Americana Poster Collection, George Delany Art…featuring the Star-Spangled Banner verse

Today is a solemn day.  We stop, we remember. We recall. We pray. We give thanks. We seek comfort. We ask for redemption. We are our brothers & sisters keepers, are we not? I invite you here on a memorable September day… amidst the pandemic, economic trial and uncertainty, national politics, geopolitical tensions and national forbearance to reflect, and if the spirit should move you, to buy an art print… apropos of the occasion— (have you ever purchased an art print?), to investigate GeorgeDelanyArt try two neat features on my site you may enjoy:

This is my “business advice,” for the week– Business advice is not really in order, this week, or this day. We take a step back, we remember an event so grotesque that conjuring up the event and recalling the details of the day, the moments, the horrors that unfolded remain a challenge, even now. I have no interest in replaying it, really. But I do have an interest in honoring our police, fire, medical, first responders, and all those who in the face of evil ran toward that which called them to assist, even save the lives of others and extinguish the chaos, rather than away. My own “therapy” after a sort included a commitment to try to use my graphic skills to lift us into the future based on the ideals held by those who struggled at the outset of our Nation’s birth to bring into being for the first time in human history a government in which the government itself was subordinate to the will of the people. The older I get, the more profound is this idea. Here we are, still, pulling together, many of us, to help form “a more perfect union.” Connecting our beginnings to the horrors of 9.11.01 makes perfect sense, to me.

Summer Wall Print,Horseneck Beach #1

We’ve been going down to the beaches in Westport, MA for some years, I admit. We love it, there. I’ve seen beaches over the years….all around the country, lots of beautiful beaches. And yet, there is something serenely beautiful about this stretch of beach called, “Horseneck Beach #1.” Yes, the beaches here have been degraded by storms in recent years, but in my mind, this place is very special. Maybe those evenings in the water riding waves as the sun sets to my right and the moon rises simultaneously to my left….have left this indelible image in me– no doubt, these memories comprise much of my entire experience, here.

Beach art print in August, 2020, “Horseneck Beach #1,” from George Delany Art

This image comes from a series of small studies of couples on Horseneck Beach, acrylic paintings at a scale of 7″ x 5″, of which this is one. Even I am impressed that such a small scale original can in the world of digital tech yield larger prints of quality….using pH neutral paper and pigment, and make this proposition work. At some point, if I can try one of these beachscapes at a scale of 6 FEET x 4’…I certainly will give it a shot, maybe next year.

Horseneck Beach #1” Art Print from George Delany Art

What is better than a day on the beach in late summer? The season has flown by, crazy May…now crazy September…looks like times may become a lot crazier between here and election day. Given our crazy times, I invite you here in early September, amidst the pandemic, economic trial and uncertainty, national politics, geopolitical tensions and national forbearance to reflect, to buy an art print… (have you ever purchased an art print?), to investigate GeorgeDelanyArt try two neat features on my site you may enjoy:

This is my “business advice,” for the week– You know of my bias, don’t you? I am not one who puts a lot of stock in “offering business advice.” I find the exercise boring, in the main. But, in this case, I find it useful to have a handful of locations in the world that are truly special, that provide a a kind of mental, emotional, even spiritual solace. Westport’s Horseneck Beach is one such place, for me. No business transpires in this context– although I could take my phone out on the beach to push along certain projects of one kind or another. But I do not. The beach, sand, winds, waves, sights, sounds, air, light….all come first. So, in the evening, when I get home from Horseneck Beach, the world is as if a new place. I am cleansed, free of all sorts of baggage, preoccupations, worries, concerns…I can get out of the car with a new sense of can-do…and head to the shower where I can complete the experience by rinsing off the salt and the sand before bed. Where is your favorite beach…or some place that may offer you an experience such as this?

Summer Art Prints:Vista from Chi-Cheemaun Ferry

We miss this excursion across Lake Huron, this year– casualty of the pandemic. If you drive 5 hours northwest of Toronto, you come to the largest fresh water estuary in the world…as it is billed. A magnificent piece of planet earth. If you get on the ferry on a summer evening and head out across the Great Lake, you may stumble on a very unusual moment like this, a magical place.

Vista from Chi-Cheemaun Ferry,” Summer Wall Decor from George Delany Art

The ferry, Chi-Cheemaun, (means, “Big Canoe,” in Objibwe) departs Tobermory and sails at a good clip for about 75 minutes out Lake Huron before arriving at Manitoulin Island, a very out-of-the-way place that is simple, clean, impeccably clean, lightly populated and beautiful in its spartan make-up. We arrive in South Baymouth, and proceed… This print to some modest extent gets at the exquisite beauty of this memorable air/water/sky environment. You can find other such photo scenes at George Delany Art.

Heading out across Lake Huron….”Vista from Deck of Chi-Cheemaun” from George Delany Art

Honey-bees are also on my mind, these days. Mites are around. Tiny, but lethal killers of bee-hives. Now, we have the pandemic with it’s Wuhan Virus, and mites that carry viruses…a daily work-out, in my view. Fellow beekeepers remind me in no uncertain terms of the need to test, treat, plan for seasonal wind-down and arrival of cool weather– winter bees are being conceived in the hive, now. I have begun to feed bees in this long, hot dry period…remains of my extraction sessions, honey-drenched comb they seem eager to claim to recycle in their hives, just a start. As the honey-bees plan for the tough seasons ahead, I invite you here in latter-August, amidst the pandemic, economic travail, national politics, geopolitical tensions and national forbearance to reflect, to buy an art print… (have you ever purchased an art print?), to investigate GeorgeDelanyArt try two neat features on my site you may enjoy:

This is my “business advice,” for the week– To be frank, offering business advice is a bore, but here goes: You want to discover a place in your business that is exquisite, don’t you? Is it in the receivables? Is it in the vision, the mission? Where is the exquisite…in your business experience. Is it in the satisfaction of a tough job, well done? In my case, completing a graphic design job carried its own rewards, and on occasion, I would have a moment not unlike that captured in this print– where what I am looking right at is indescribably beautiful…and often times, I have to realize that this comes with effort. You make the journey, you make the voyage, you pick up your stuff and head out. You do the work. And if you’re lucky, you stumble upon a something unusual.

Mid-August Wall Decor,Flo’s Steamed Hot Dogs, Famous Hot Dog Vendor”

Yes, we’ve had a few this season, a few hot dogs, that is. We’re hot dog fans, here. No, we don’t eat them every night or every week, but on a hot summer night with corn, fresh tomatoes, and hamburgers, there is a place for the hot dog. Now, with the Pandemic, we have not been able to get up to Maine to visit Flo, but that day is coming.

Flo’s Steamed Hot Dogs,” wall decor from George Delany Art

When we’re in the York Harbor area of Maine, we make a point of getting out on the old Route 1 highway to get in line….for a Flo’s Steamed Hot Dog, or two. Part of the life, up here. We dress it up with Flo’s special sauce and a generous supply of toppings such as you see here. I admit, I thought at the time, “This is an odd image,” and I still believe this is true. But it rings my chimes now, after looking at it for some couple of summers. Here in the Pandemic, I could stand a few Flo’s Steamed Hot Dogs.

A Flo’s Hotdog on your wall…from George Delany Art

As August winds down, the air has changed, animals notice it– so do I! Birds for some reason have disappeared, Catbirds, Robins, Finches, Wrens, two that only recently moved into one of our new birdhouses, have taken mysterious leave. What is this, wild cats moving thru the property? Why? I don’t know.  Maybe they will return, soon.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– Even the lowly hot-dog can find a place on the wall. Amidst all the great art, the wonderful paintings, invaluable originals, inspiring prints for everybody, there is a place for the ordinary hot-dog on my wall. How about yours? What are the lowly images that animate your life? That perhaps you adore, or find some secret personal satisfaction in acknowledging? Hot-dog art is my suggestion, this week.

August Wall Art, “Preamble to US Constitution

When did our public schools stop teaching civics…and this kind of American history? Here is my graphic, PREAMBLE poster. Seems suitable for an August wall art selection leading up to an election in 80 or so days. Will be posting several times over next couple of months. A number of citizens seem to be clueless about the document, what it signifies, what it marks, what it introduces and what it means. I wonder– maybe I should commit to memory…it’s buried down there, somewhere. Maybe it needs only to be resurrected.

Preamble” to US Constitution, graphic design from George Delany Art

This is one of a series of USA Poster offerings from George Delany Art. I’ve been hankering after work like this for years–feeling my own distance from the topic, perhaps. But in this day and age, there is no problem with such distance. We are right here and now facing our own legacy, stewardship and the need to embrace who we are as a nation. I am getting tuned up for whatever is to be required. Here, you see the graphic print in more detail. All prints use archival materials, paper and pigments. Do not hang in or near sunlight. This is digital technology, after all.

Preamble,” designed by George Delany

Here in mid-August, are we looking at fall, already? I notice squirrels running across the road, some birds seem to have departed the premises, flowers are well past peak at this time. Honey-bees are frantic. Fall…can’t be!  I invite you here in mid-August, amidst the pandemic, economic travail, geopolitical upheaval and national forbearance to reflect, to buy an art print…(have you ever purchased an art print?), to investigate GeorgeDelanyArt try two neat features on my site you may enjoy:

Secondly, the Live Augmented Reality feature that allows you to see your chosen art work on YOUR wall…in your setting. Pretty exciting stuff.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– I find it energizing and uplifting to revisit during these tumultuous times our own rich history and legacy. The more tumultuous times seem to become, the more respect and admiration I have for the determination, resolve, creativity and integrity of our Founding Fathers. Personally, I find myself unwilling to compromise on any of this. Where are you on the topic of our American history, legacy and the concept of living into a “more perfect union”?

Summer Art Print:Corn

Turns out, this is one of my favorite oil paintings, to date. Corn. It is roughly 60″ x 40,” oil-on-canvas. I offer limited edition prints at George Delany Art. The painting began as an outdoor exercise at just this time of year, August, when corn was in the neighborhood, at the market, and in my head.

Corn,” from my limited edition series, George Delany Art

Above you see the image as it might appear in a home-office. Below you see the image coming along in the very latter stages, almost done, though the question of what it means to be “done” is always lurking in the air! Print dimensions are 24″ x 18.” I will sign a limited edition print for you. You can frame it as you wish. The print uses archival pigments and paper, but should not hang near or in direct sunlight. Thanks for your inquiry here, appreciate your interest.

Work in progress, “Corn,” from George Delany Art

Below is a mug shot of me as the painting was first laid on, outdoors, one hot August day. I spread out the easel, the canvas, a table on saw-horses, all my paint and turpentine, brushes, rags, paper towel, a beer and just started in.

Early Stage, “Corn,” Limited Edition Prints Available, George Delany Art

It’s August. We’ve suffered thru one storm whose name I can’t quite get.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– Corn moves me. I guess this is because corn has kept humanity alive for a long, long time. I attach sacred implications to corn. Maybe I’ll write about this, someday. But to sit and munch down an ear of buttered corn on the cob in August, treat though it is, misses some of the qualities that come with living on planet Earth, seems to me. I have made an effort to capture this in my painting, which, by the way, I completed over a bunch of years– this was a fun painting to puzzle out. What sorts of images really move you?

Summer Wall Decor, First Amendment

What is more under assault these days than our beloved First Amendment. Tech giants, the politically correct, pockets in academia, cells in Corporate America, elements of the far left, globalists take aim at the bedrock of this country– this may not be your view, but it is mine. I will be posting this image several times between now and November of this year. I see this topic as one worth “going to the matte,” over.

If I can make this poster available to half a million people in the next little while (I would like to take a crack at it), I will…that’s how important I think this topic is, and so I am very grateful to have been able some years ago to come up with this graphic example of Constitutional Wall Art, my own art-print category as far as I can tell.

First Amendment,” wall art, graphic design from George Delany Art

Below is the spare, graphic work, done in contemporary graphic style and simple red, white and blue, plus black. Note the red and blue are not loud expressions of the colors, but muted in an effort to keep them dignified yet right on topic. This is but one example of wall decor from my Americana Wall Poster Collection, you may wish to check others out.

I am intrigued by this topic, the role of our Founding Fathers, the writing of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and generally speaking, how our country came to be. And I have learned lately, this was no easy feat…on the contrary, it was monumental, and if we’re not prepared to fight for it, the whole proposition is very easy to lose. That’s where I am on this topic.

First Amendment,” Graphic Design from George Delany Art

On the cusp of August, astonishingly, I invite you in this heat, amidst the pandemic, economic travail, geopolitical upheaval and national forbearance to reflect, to buy an art print…(have you ever purchased an art print?), to investigate GeorgeDelanyArt try two neat features on my site you may enjoy:

The first– WALL Preview, a capability that visualizes your art selection in your specifications as seen in different settings; living room, bedroom, sitting room, conference room, these sorts of things, as referenced, above. 

Secondly, the Live Augmented Reality feature that allows you to see your chosen art work on YOUR wall…in your setting. Pretty exciting stuff.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– We are stewards of great Americans, our Founding Fathers, and grand ideas embodied in our founding documents. They died for us, so that we might inherit the fruits of their efforts. We have inherited the results of their sweat, and the legacy they left us with all its struggles, blemishes, imperfections, trade-offs and compromises such has never been duplicated in the history of civilization. As stewards of the country, now, we common citizens may soon have to engage in the same kind of titanic struggle to ‘build a more perfect union,” to hold on to this legacy as our Founding Fathers had to undertake to give birth to this Nation in the first place. That’s how desperate our adversaries to this legacy appear to be in their determination to bring it all down. I am betting that our will, purpose, courage, integrity, grit and moxie will prevail as was the case upon our Founding. Maybe with this print it is time to think about what we are willing to go to the matte for. What really matters? It may be time.

Summer Print Art, “Ocean Drive #2

Ocean Drive in Newport, Rhode Island offers up umpteen magnificent views as you drive the length of it. Here you see endless and often breath-taking scenes of the water, sky and land coming together to captivate. Here is one of a series I painted in acrylic form, originally, at a small scale, 7″ x 5″, from which these digital prints are produced.

Ocean Drive #2, Newport, RI” summer print art from George Delany

The original image looks like this, see below, before any application to print technology or wall decor considerations. This was a wind-blown, watery day when I completed my sketch. The air, water, sun all move, all the time, so I made an effort to capture the dynamism in the moment in this painting as I try to do in most of my paintings that are not in the still-life style. One of a series of small acrylic paintings completed during this time, from which these archival prints are made available.

And if you like pixelated images, as I do, you might like a pixelated print. You can see the difference, here. Not everybody’s choice, but I’ve been enamored with pixelated images since I first discovered them in the graphic design profession, some years ago.

Ocean Drive #2,” summer art print from George Delany

Here in this continued heat-wave, fourth day over ninety, mid-July day, 2020, I invite you amidst the pandemic, economic travail, geopolitical upheaval and national forbearance to reflect, to buy an art print…(have you ever purchased an art print?), to investigate GeorgeDelanyArt try two neat features on my site:

This is my “business advice,” for the week– It helps to be able to see or to find beauty in conditions that are not, let’s say, stereotypical. We think full sun, blue sky, glorious! Yes, this is often the case. But when the sun disappears and the clouds arrive, can we still see the beauty in the moment? Can we still celebrate the less-than-fashionably-perfect? Can we see perhaps more beauty in the less idealized than we would believe possible? This is one reason why the art-experience is so powerful. I am lucky to paint some of it in the Ocean Drive painting, produced as a summer wall decor, here, “Ocean Drive #2.”

Summer Wall Decor, “Exec VP HR Takes Info Dip

This amusing print, from an original painting, acrylic on masonite, only 7″ x 5″ in dimension, “Exec VP HR Takes Info Dip,” was inspired by a variety of “mixed-bag” experiences with the ever-suspect HR Department– no insult intended, but we all know the not-so-peculiar fascination with data, stories, records, infractions, corrective actions, hires, fires, terminations, special events…that focus on the activities of the Human Resources Department. Here, you see a Senior Exec taking a little break from the daily ruckus.

Summer Art Print, “Exec VP HR Takes Info Dip,” from George Delany Art

This series was created in the acknowledgement that data rules our lives, or seems to, at any rate. And isn’t it a credit to any corporate executive to be available, 24/7, all the time, by some means or other. And isn’t it considered a plus when you can seemlessly move across a 24-hour cycle and never miss a phone call, txt, video conference, or email message, just phenomenal! What a valuable skill-set! Even at the beach, where you retreat to get just a sliver of rest before the chaos on most Mondays heats up, again…you are on call, ready to go at a moment’s notice. Astonishing.

Here, you can peruse more ideas for summer wall decor solutions from George Delany Art.

Some people detest pixilated images. I am not in this camp. I love pixelated images and have for years. If you’d have any inkling to consider a pixelated view of this painting, you can see it, here, be my guest!

On this hot, humid, mid-July day, 2020, I invite you amidst the pandemic, economic travail, geopolitical upheaval and national strife to reflect, to buy an art print…(have you ever purchased an art print?), to investigate GeorgeDelanyArt try two neat features on my site:

This is my “business advice,” for the week– Where do you really relax? Where is the spot, the exact location? What do you do, while there? What form does your most cherished form of relaxation take? Do you “take it with you,” or, do you prefer to just leave it be for a few hours. Worth considering when so many of us are agitated, concerned, worried, frenetic, over-wrought, anxious, perhaps rudderless. Where do you find your recharge, your sustenance, your ‘base-camp’? In my life, there are several such places, but one…is certainly along the majestic ocean’s edge…at the beach.

Summer Wall Decor, “God Bless America

Today, July 4, 2020, is somewhat like Thanksgiving, notwithstanding obvious differences. We get a day to count our blessings. Do we deserve it? Do we earn them? Are we entitled…to them? No, my view. But if we are fortunate to think about this topic at all, we realize all our national blessings arise for reasons largely beyond our doing or comprehension. As unfashionable in some quarters as this is to state, my poster below, “God Bless America,” attempts to get at it to some modest extent.

“God Bless America,” from the Who We Are™ Collection by George Delany

This series of seven original posters was accepted some years ago into the Library of Congress‘ permanent collection. Posters comprising this set also won a Gold Award from Graphis Poster Annual…some time after I first introduced the works following the attack of 9.11.01. Many in this collection have been sold to a wide variety of people…teachers, soldiers, parents, challenging to characterize the real demographic, since, in my mind, so many can relate to the utter simplicity of the image and verse. I have been gratified by this.

God Bless America,” hangs well in the bedroom, from George Delany Art

I am not in the humor to be told we must “reimagine July 4,” or “rethink” it, or re-anything it such as the popular media, the usual talking heads would have us do. In my humble opinion, our national ideals have come after a couple of thousand years of toil and struggle, at great personal sacrifice to millions, and only after and because our Founding Fathers & Mothers were possessed sufficiently in spirit to lay out what in the history of both Western & Eastern civilization had never been imagined before. The founding ideals are clearly stated, celebrated, and remain for us to live fully into so that we may continue to “form a more perfect union.” Thank you for considering this post.

On this unusual July 4, 2020 wall-art post of 2020, I invite you amidst the pandemic, economic travail, geopolitical upheaval and national strife to reflect, to investigate GeorgeDelanyArt try two neat features on my site: The first– WALL Review, a capability that visualizes your art selection in your specifications as seen in different settings; living room, bedroom, sitting room, conference room, these sorts of things, as referenced, above. Secondly, the Live Augmented Reality feature that allows you to see your chosen art work on YOUR wall…in your setting. Pretty exciting stuff.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– What is it we hold most dear? Are you willing to compromise this? Trash it? Dilute it? Diminish it? Degrade it? Turn it over to others to steward? What is your response? When I was in college, one question of the day for which I was unprepared was, “Are there any absolute values, any more….or, are all things relative?” Today, July 4, 2020, we get a chance to solidly answer this question. Some things are not relative, at all, and are worth preserving at all costs.

Summer Wall DecorFrances & Tractor

This post celebrates my neighbor, Frances, on the occasion of her 98th birthday, this week. I will give her this photo as a birthday gift on this wonderful occasion.

Frances & Tractor,” can be seen at George Delany Art

You are looking at a most remarkable woman. Her farm, which she tends to this day, got her family thru the Great Depression. When she turned 80 years old, she and her brother celebrated by purchasing 2 heifers, two very amply sized Herefords. She climbed the ladder each week to the hayloft to fork down a week’s worth of hay for these animals, by herself, until well into her eighties.

This is the order process, typical of my site, “Frances & Her Tractor,” from George Delany Art

These days she is slowing down a bit, but she remains sharp as a tack and still gets in her truck, drives up to the north lot, hoes a few rows of strawberries or beans, drives home and has a piece of cake and cup of tea. I take a special satisfaction in showing you this work, and this person.

Spring Art, “Castle Hill Light” Art Print

You paint a lighthouse, and perhaps without realizing it, you paint an object of reverence and romance for many art lovers….the lighthouse, beaming light through clouds and stormy seas to sailors threatened by high seas, wicked winds and currents, dark and foggy skies penetrated by sheets of driving rain…each sailor hoping against hope to make landfall, safely. This is what I carry around in my head…on the subject of lighthouses. Man-made objects of hope against the unfathomable sea.

Castle Hill Light,” Newport, Rhode Island, from George Delany Art

Some years ago I painted on wooden shingles a series of lighthouses I read about…each one up and down the northeastern coast line. I was impressed to discover how beautiful these structures are, and how splendid are the settings, so often. You see here an image of Castle Hill Light, in Newport, Rhode Island. This painting, from which these prints are made, was done in acrylic paint at a small scale, 7″ x 5″….in a loose style I hoped might capture the unusual nature of each lighthouse.

What do we look for when the waves roll high and the winds begin to howl? When our ship founders, when our compasses can’t be counted on, when navigation gets tough, what kind of light do we hope and pray to see leading us to safety?

Spring Wall Art,Battle Hymn of the Republic” at Memorial Day

What an odd, profoundly different this Memorial Day was. Amidst a global pandemic, a national health crises, a tanked economy, lots to ponder and worry about, and yet, the spirit of this country rang thru in so many ways. I haven’t see so many memorable scenes of life in these United States as was true this weekend– when I was not outside walking, or gardening, or tending bees.

Most appealing to me were the photo essays on first-line health responders, then on our military men and women, their families, then reflections on all those soldiers who in our history have paid the ultimate sacrifice, and fallen. Our country seems to be in a very introspective mode, this Memorial Day, and I for one take deep satisfaction in it.

Battle Hymn of the Republic,” from George Delany Art Collection

The Nation has taken a big breath for months, and yet, we stopped to honor our soldiers on Memorial Day. We have suffered as a people for weeks and weeks, many of us with little to no voice about the general state of affairs, whatsoever. And yet, Monday afternoon at 3:00, across this nation, TAPS Across America rang out as musicians everywhere picked up their horns as if on signal and played as one. I was fortunate to see this promoted beforehand, on a Sunday morning TV show, Sunrise, on CBS– or frankly, I may never have known about it. How powerful and moving it was. Thanks to all the musicians who at the appointed minute, participated.

America, My Country ‘Tis of Thee,” from George Delany Art

Here are images from my Americana Print collection, I call Americana. This collection began with the horrors of 9.11.01. I continue to build it out. Here are some examples of iconography, typography and verse I find reflective of our Nation and our history– and a good guide for navigating the future as it unfolds. I like this American Revival expression, personally.

Pulse across America!  Thank goodness, people are demanding we return to work, our enterprise, our means of income, our dreams, our futures, our national economy– despite all the dire prognostications of death and destruction, despite all the computer data and modeling, despite all the (continuing) political shenanigans, for many of us, this year on Memorial Day was memorable, for many of the right reasons in my opinion. So let’s crank it up, now. We must go to work and back to our lives.

Faith, family, love and work…I confess, I am still overdue for a haircut, but fortunately, I’ve visited the bakery twice. This, I can probably forego. < grin > I notice that in Rhode Island, while the strip clubs are open, the liquor stores, the marijuana enterprises– all deemed “essential,” in order to go to a funeral you have to limit your crowd to ten. And stranger still, if you want to go to church, you must limit your crowd to five, assuming you can find one that is open. Signs of the times– yes, we want to protect each other, and ourselves…but the unfolding of the whole thing is worthy of someone’s writing a good script, some day.

Spring Wall Art  “Boston Strong, America

Images from my Americana Posters collection. Today is the day we celebrate a big day in American history. So I thought I’d offer some wall art, Americana poster art that helps remind us of our own history and heritage.

America” from the George Delany Art Americana Collection

America…”My Country Tis of Thee, Sweet Land of Liberty…of Thee I Sing…”–How may of us sing this verse at all, these days? We might do ourselves and our children a favor to remember May 8, 1945. 75 years ago TODAY we celebrated this date. If those who have come before us had not been willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice, we would likely be speaking German…or perhaps Russian, today. Most who died were young, between 18 and 24, I’m told– not all, but the vast majority. I find it useful to read about this period of time. I look back with some amazement at moments of my own youth when my dad would explain to me the meaning of photographs in the famous book, “Life’s Picture History of World War II.” Photos in that book remain in my consciousness, today. They also inform my understanding of aspects of human nature that remain indecipherable.

“America” in the Board Room, from the George Delany Art Americana Posters Collection

Check out other Americana Poster Prints from my George Delany Art collection…these will be growing in number as the spring and summer unfolds.

Thankfully, the country is…as if, waking up, now. For weeks we’ve been hunkered down, at home for many hours out of every twenty four…have we not? People want out. People want to work, people have to work, people are driven to work. We must feed our children…and ourselves. Hats off to the Texas woman, Shelley Luther, who defied the judge and kept her hair salon open…and in accordance with guidelines issued the the State. We remain mindful. If you’ve read about the Pandemic of 1918, you have a sense that the “second wave is out there.” Easy does it. Personally, I am overdue at the barber shop and bakery.

Spring Wall Art  “Gray Day on Ocean Drive

Gray Day on Ocean Drive” from George Delany Art

This is a foreboding photo— dark skies, no people, no signs of life save one lone Sea Gull. And yet, on the day this photo was taken, the weather was warm and inviting. The water was warm…and inviting. I had just been in for a swim. This view of Ocean Drive, Newport, Rhode Island…the vast, dark sky against the impenetrable nature of endless rock, punctuated by a single Gull, amidst pools and ponds, a captivating scene.

Gray Day on Ocean Drive,“…Hangs in Living Room

Ocean Drive, Newport, Rhode Island— was at this moment, tranquil, humid, still, and not at all uninviting. Nevertheless, the forlorn seascape grabbed my attention, the single Gull, the view of homes-out-of-reach, off in the distance, the scale of the sky, the sliver of population in the middle, the grand presence of rocks and puddles in the foreground…I found appealing. Lesson: What you see is not always indicative of what is going on…we know this, right?

Check out other photo prints from my George Delany Art collection…these will be growing in number as the spring and summer unfolds.

After eight or so weeks of hunkered down, at home for many hours out of every twenty four, I am eager to get out, get about, get back to a familiar routine. The whole country seems itchy to get back to something, despite the propensity of certain Governors to keep their States locked up for another month or more. Not wild about being locked up, even in this very serious circumstance. But we do want to “be safe.” If you’ve read about the Pandemic of 1918, you have a sense that the “second wave is out there.” While we’re bridging this period into whatever it is that shall come next, you are invited to take this opportunity to explore all sections of George Delany Art, prints of various visual themes: InstagramsPhotosDrawingsPaintings and Americana Posters

Spring Wall Art  “Dalmatian Beauty

Business advice for this week: “Be ready when the moment arrives.” But to be frank, I don’t know this dog from Barney. We were traveling on a ferry when he, leading the way…and his mistress passed me by…I was just so struck by how handsome this animal is that I wheeled around with my trusty iPhone and took this quick picture.

Dalmatian wall art, Instagram by George Delany, spring 2020

When you take this ordinary moment on a random ferry going from point A to point B, interrupt the planned adventure to snap unexpectedly a quick iPhone photo, this is what I wind up with. Honestly, I’m tempted to order one for my own room. I remember how striking this animal was, even now. Available in a variety of materials, sizes, mattes and frames from Gallery Delany Art.

Spring Wall ArtSpring Daffodil

Spring Daffodil,” from George Delany Art

This could be my favorite time of year. Winter winds down, spring arrives, slooooly in brutal April when it is cold and rainy much of the time. Tonight we are due to get snow, a week after Easter. But there are those glorious days when you know that the world is unfolding, and here it is, in the form of a splendid, new Spring Daffodil.

Our spirits are severely tested this year, aren’t they? The virus, the close-down, the sequester, the quarantine, the bank account, the country’s health and condition, our collective long-term debt, geopolitics, the environment….should I continue? Then, we’ve had some very bad storms, lately, trees down, power out. People need a break, we need a break, I need a break. I work in the garden, daily. We go for walks. We’re counting our blessings especially earnestly, this year. We know the virus isn’t going to magically go away. It is here for the long term, not at all good if you are in my risk pool. And then, there is geopolitics. What is really going on? I surely don’t know. But I know the wrens are busy every day, the honeybees are in the birdbath when the temp hits 50 and the sun is out, the family of Cardinals are perched on our porch in a new nest, as the momma cardinal sits on her eggs. What can be better than…these signs of spring?

Here is my first little experimental ChantVideo, more to follow…

“Spring Daffodil,” in the bedroom, from George Delany Art

As you may consider this selection please experiment with how a work might appear on various wall surfaces and in settings such as a living room, bed room, conference room, or sitting room. Also consider a variety of mediums, materials, sizes and finishes, all very handy. You see in this instance the selection horizontally formatted, in a proposed bedroom– just one feature when buying spring wall decor from this site.

Here, at the close of the week following Easter, we continue to stand in admiration, respect and gratitude for the many Americans who selflessly remain on-the-job, helping to shepherd all of us thru this virus pandemic.

Spring Wall ArtChrist & the Folks

Christ & the Folks, from George Delany Art

Easter 2020, what an odd and trying time…all over the world it is. Between the virus, the toll it takes, our collapsed economy, and anxiety about our Nation, we’ve got plenty to bring to the Almighty, this year. Some years ago, I did a series of black-and-white wash sketches featuring messages of the day as if they showed up in someone’s personal eMail. This was my eMail marketing period. Above, you see one wash sketch typical of the series. I intend to feature many in the series as this blog unfolds. But as Easter Day approaches, when so many are disjointed, dislocated, in grief, or a state of anxiety, I think the message of Jesus is one worthy of the cultural slow-down, the economic retreat, the mandatory put-on-the-brakes…that every one of us is currently experiencing in one way or the other.

Lessons in Mercy, Forgiveness, Love that come to us thru the ages in a particular Book are as profound and mysterious now as they were at the time they were noted and gathered. In this time, we learn to our amazement that data, trends, fashions, science, fact, evidence, gossip, innuendo, fake news….even money and career, nothing seems quite as important now as was so only two months ago. This little illustration, folks gathered together listening to the teachings of Christ…seems entirely right for the time. Welcome to “Christ and the Folks.”

Even the fellow on his cell phone calling someone about something (we know not whom)…presumably, the presence of Jesus in their midst, suggests the kind of daily freneticism we lived out daily until only a few weeks ago. Easter Blessings to you and yours, 2020, offered in the spirit that yes, we are all in this together, and yes, there are certain teachings that come to us as we are willing to try to understand them, lessons of which would hold promise to supersede almost everything else life offers up. Christ is risen.

When looking at this selection please experiment with how a work might look on various wall surfaces such as living room, bed room, conference room, sitting room or similar settings. You are encouraged to consider a variety of mediums, materials, sizes and finishes, all very handy. You see in this instance the selection horizontally formatted, in a proposed sitting room– just one feature when buying spring wall decor from this site.

Here, just before Easter, the center-story in the history of Western Civilization for over 2000 years, we stand in admiration, respect and gratitude for the many Americans who selflessly remain on-the-job, helping to shepherd all of us thru this virus pandemic. First responders, health care professionals, firemen and women, truckers, trash pick-up guys, cashiers, all those whose contributions buoy us up and inspire us, right now. Thank you, all.
