Summer Art PrintBannister’s Wharf

You drive into Newport, Rhode Island, head down to the waterfront, and you might find yourself parked on a wharf as I was, just before I painted this scene in acrylic on masonite board– looking out over the harbor. This was late in the season. If you go there today, right now, you’ll see much more traffic. Peak season! What a great summertime art print…for yourself or a friend.

Bannister’s Wharf” Art Print by George Delany

Below is another summertime favorite of mine, “After Swim, First Beach,” a tribute to the beaches of Newport, Rhode Island in summer. Basically, I concocted this perspective from scratch, having visited the beaches and area so many times over the years. Here you see a young woman just out of the ocean after she’s been for a swim, drying off in the air and sun, and that’s about it. This is a selection that holds great promise for “moving me in February,” a test of my summer print selections. < wink > No doubt, when February rolls around, I will be pining for the beach, the sun, sea and scene, just as enthusiastically as ever.

After Swim, First Beach,” by George Delany

Question for you: Have you ever purchased a single graphic print? An art print? A photo print? Maybe right now, here as this mid-summer month of July unfolds – instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Or, how about a Honey-Bee print? Or, a golf printA lighthouse print? Lift someone’s spirits! Giving art, to give a print can be a joyful experience…even in trying times… such as now. When I give a print, it is most assuredly a joyful experience! In these testy, tumultuous times, think about giving an original print, this summer. 

Prints are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the new year moves thru summer. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you. As the Pandemic seems for the moment to have wound down (we hear rumblings…) what better way to celebrate than with a summer art print, a lighthouse print, perhaps, or a poster with a patriotic theme, or a Honey-Bee print, or golf print…not bad gift choices for a friend or relative!

Customize your selection. Two unusual and decidedly helpful features on my art site: 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, an under-appreciated feature.

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

“Can I brand my Americana posters?” To this question, the answer is decidedly, yes. Yes, I can brand these posters for you – contact me with questions. In short, your logo can be added at a discrete size to the lower right corner of each poster. I will show you a proof prior to production. #brandednonprofits is the hashtag I will incorporate to try to identify this program, on-line. Good anytime of year, even AFTER July 4. 

Exhibit Page, New! Thank you for your steadfast, enthusiastic support of my new Exhibit page, designed to show off to best advantage how examples of my original images appear when matted, framed and hung on the wall! I have added new examples every now and again and will continue to expand this feature of my site

You may find my new NFT art of interest (“Non-fungible tokens”), seen here on Rarible. More to come, a new collection in development as this is written, one that will focus on a series of recent studies in oil-crayons completed since last summer. Look for it, soon.

“Business Advice” for day: Our economy is in perilous condition, our geopolitical world situation seems fragile, armed, uncertain. What can we do? We can live these summer months as fully as possible, can’t we. Thru all the daily barrage of bad news, insults, con-games by our leadership, grotesque media reports that fail to educate, inform or illuminate our citizenry, we can live each day fully, taking advantage of every opportunity the day affords….much like the young woman in my painted image, above. She has been for a swim, survived the surf, the waves, the tide, she has rinsed herself off, and is basking in the summer sun, in the air, anticipating the remainder of the day and all the promise it olds. That’s the spirit!

Have some creative fun building your print collection this year. Post July 4, try a new Americana Poster print purchase…this summer. And do see my new promotional video on Youtube! In this season of chicks and chickens, take a look!

Summer Art PrintAmerica the Beautiful

Given everything swirling about in this Country, why on earth would anyone post this image, “America the Beautiful,” this year at July 4? Because the ideals that were born with the advent of America still hold, that’s why. The haters, the loud-mouths, the deceivers, the cheaters, the vengeful, the sanctimonious, the squanderers, the scammers, the shammers, the colluders, the dividers, the race-baiters, the all-virtuous, those who insist that with every scurrilous connivance they are on ‘the right side of history,’ the data-gatherers, policy makers, un-elected bureaucrats throughout our now well-politicized institutions, no matter who you are…you wouldn’t have a leg to stand on were it not for our Founding Fathers and the brilliant documents they conceived and left as legacy to the rest of us. And the ideals still hold! Just astonishing, in my view. We are finding out, yet again, that stewardship is more challenging than the original acts, are we not? Given our national tensions, I hold this July 4 out to be as important as any in my lifetime. Let’s hear it for renewed, individual, committed stewardship. What can I do?

Below, you get a sense of how this image may look when hung on a particular wall, perhaps even your wall? I confess, this is my favorite verse…not the first verse, but a beautifully moving one, from what is among my favorite American hymns.

“Business Advice” for day: Having been to New York City for an arts event recently, and having witnessed a family member come down with Covid as a result, and understanding that many who attended that event on that particular day also came down with Covid, I am particularly mindful of how fleeting life is; good health, luck, fortune and follow-thru, among many other qualities of our existence. Here is another area of life in which the personal and professional are profoundly over-lapping. In fact, in this example, the personal and professional overlapped < and still do > almost entirely. Thank goodness, Covid is passing, the event was a success, and our family member is coming along, well. “Advice” is not relevant, here, but an overriding sense of Thanks…certainly is.

Summer Art Print “Great Point Light”

This original shingle painting, “Great Point Light,” is being varnished in preparation for inclusion into an exhibit that will essentially provide a fund-raising opportunity for a Massachusetts non-profit later this summer. Though not available as a print on my website, it is one of the family of such lighthouse paintings I completed in acrylic paint, each one on a wood shingle, some years ago.

“Great Point Light,” by George Delany

Below, see the finished shingle mounted and ready to drop off for the fund-raiser exhibit. I don’t normally sell originals such as this shingle painting but in this case, the shingle itself will be for sale. More information on the nature of the fund-raiser at a later date. In the meantime, you may like other such prints from this Lighthouse Series as seen here.

“Business Advice” for day: Can a trip to the beach be seen as a reward for having slogged thru the week? I think so. Is there a comparable experience in the business world? I think so. A family member has had a grueling week, and today he is walking the beach on Long Island with his once-stray dogs…certainly a kind of compensation for his own grueling week in the business world. I am glad for him…and would wish for anyone a restorative experience after grappling with the realities of business in any given week.

Spring PrintSaybrook Breakwater Light

Thank you for your orders! Couple of you have ordered this print in recent weeks–turns out to be popular. Newport, Rhode Island is a fascinating town, the waterfront area especially so.

Speaking of waterfront, below is one of my lighthouse paintings, this one, “Saybrook Breakwater Light,” painted art about 7″ x 5″ at the original scale in acrylic paint on a wooden shingle. Each of these painting in the Lighthouse Series was done from images I found in print or on-line, which I adapted to the surface of the shingle, as deemed interesting. Arbitrary, yes; interpretive, yes, spontaneous, yes. This is the spirit of the entire series, from which prints are offered as seen on my website in the Paint Prints Gallery.

Below, you can see a print made from the original acrylic-on-shingle painting, in Massachusetts, “Great Point Light.” The setting here is informal, the scene, casual, the coloration of the set, a variety of grays, warm mid-tones against which the brightly colored painted image is offset.

“Business Advice” for day: Don’t people seem to love summer? We have had a series of gorgeous, late Spring, early-Summer days, lately. From the crack of dawn until sunset people relish being out and about, tending to gardens, walking the beach, preparing boats for summer fun on the water, traveling hither and yon. What a wonderful time of year.

So I take note of my lighthouse paintings…lighthouses becoming more visible and apparent as we get out and about in this most enticing of seasons. Lighthouse art is a popular genre, as you may know. One reason for the popularity stems from the awareness people have that lighthouses are seen as sacred places whereby a simple beam of light projected thru a dark and stormy night can signal a life saved, tragedy averted, a new beginning– without which only darkness and death on the rocks might have ensued. I admit, in my own small-business life there have been periods of time between feast and famine when I felt myself vulnerable to crashing and drowning on rocks. This was amplified by my certain knowledge that most businesses fail, six out of ten, seven out of ten, in difficult times, eight out of ten, it is said. What served as my “beacon in the night,” was often sheer effort to find new clients, new customers, to support my enterprise; a little more imagination, a bit more time spent in reaching out, in discussion, in networking; perhaps accelerating the development of a new product or service, all in the name of avoiding the shoals. So often I was fortunate– all that extra effort paid off. New work rolled in. The phone rang. Meetings piled up. Projects requiring my services arrived to be completed often times on urgent bases. Each new project brought with it a deposit check which immediately improved my small-business cash-flow, such a relief they were! So the image of the light house has many sorts of meanings we can impart that reflect the fragile yet resilient nature of the human spirit. I have come to appreciate the topic of ‘lighthouse art,’ in these ways and believe in treacherous times like these the consciousness of such thought can serve as a useful prod to undertake whatever may be required to get through. Financial crises, housing crises, pandemic crisis. inflation crisis. monetary crises, health crises, geo-political crises, whatever it is. The far-off beam of light in the stormy night catches our imagination and spurs us on.

Spring Art PrintBannister’s Wharf Art Print

Sold a couple of these prints, lately, surprise! Thank you for your support— you know who you are. Amidst war news, economic news, environmental news, political news, gender news, and the whole barrage, I am comforted to know people find uplift and solace in a simple print, in this case, of the Newport, Rhode Island waterfront. Here is “Bannister’s Wharf Art Print.” I remember doing this little work, a study in acrylic paint on a masonite board, small scale, 7″ x 5″ brought to life via the miraculous means of digital technology. It was late in the day. I peeled into Newport, found my way to the parking lot right near this spot. It was as if the view of this particular image lay right in front of me while I was in the car, gazing out. There was the painted image! Sometimes these moments happen, don’t they. It is as though the image drew me to the moment, rather than the other way around. I am glad to present this image here.

Bannister’s Wharf Art Print,” by George Delany

Then, to understand how this image might look on a wall, any wall, or your wall, here is a supporting image. Seen in this largely gray environment, with highlights in white and deep brown and black tones, the colorful image stands off the wall with a certain zest if I don’t say so, itself. Bear in mind, you can customize your materials, add a matte, frame and select a hanging method when you order this image, right from this art website. Very handy. Other such painted images can be seen in my Paints Print Gallery. You can get 20% off the price during this present Spring Special when you sign-up with an email address, easy as pie.

“Business Advice” for day: Drenching rains by night and day have eased the long dry spell we’ve had over quite a stretch. Anything green now is growing so quickly and easily, it is a lush time of year. I am preoccupied cutting grass, raking, adding mulch between the rows in my garden, keeping weeds at bay. Am still looking for my first snake of the season, have not seen, yet! The Nekoosa Dogwood is in full bloom, peak season. The Mock-Orange is just past peak, and her blossoms are among the most beautifully scintillating of the entire Spring experience. We don’t like to see the Mock-Orange season pass us by. We’d like to hold on to it for just another week or two. But Spring melds into summer. The little momma wren sits on her bird-house for a split second before entering her abode to check on her babies, and then she quickly departs only to dart away into the bush. My wildflower garden of last year, without much tending on my part, has completely come back this year and is prolific with new buds coming along, many of them a spanky, chrome-yellow in color. I have no explanation for this. Day Lilies are up next. They are shooting toward the sky, buds still in their development phase. In short, in business as in life, so much of what transpires has no adequate explanation. Moments pass us by as if with their own intent, their own velocity, their own life, leaving us only to curse or marvel at what results. No cursing this week, it is all one big, lush, beautiful marvel.

You may find my new NFT art of interest (“Non-fungible tokens”), seen here on Rarible. More to come, a new collection in development as this is written, one that will focus on a series of recent studies in oil-crayons completed since last summer. Look for it, soon.

Spring Wall ArtSpring Rhododendron You Can’t Buy

Well, OK, then! < grin > The reason is, I just took this photo after a morning rain, this morning. The image here is not yet available for sale, but it may be, soon! If you like it, you may find this an acceptable replacement, taken in a prior year but equally ‘gawjus,’ as they say, locally. I’d like to see a print 12 feet long by 8′ high, now that would be my idea of a photo print.

Spring Rhododendron You Can’t Buy” by George Delany

Below, you see another image from the same series, just photographed, early today. Note the presence of a Bumble Bee…tucking herself in, center left, slightly up. So this image is not available for purchase, either, as yet. But I may load it up shortly and add it to my Spring series. You can see additional Spring images in my Instagram or Photography Galleries.

“Business Advice” for day: I began the large task of cleaning up this property, preparing for Spring, almost 3 months ago and am happy to report, “Am making progress.” These are three of the busiest months of the year when multiple tasks must be completed without delay, and many require ‘thinking ahead,’ a diminishing mental skill in modern America, it would appear. But as any small business owner knows, this trait, this quality is a requirement of life, a necessity, and one that comes, for the most part, without too much additional sweat– since one’s small business survival depends on complex thinking, planning and execution in the course of each ordinary day….just to keep the lights on and doors open. I like the long list of Spring chores. Without this long list, there will be no Summer or Fall harvest of much of anything, fruit, vegetables or flowers. So here is to the agility, mental, physical, psychological, emotional, that comes with Spring and its many requirements to find some kind of prosperity as winter fades away completely and the new season only gets greener and greener, more promising as it unfolds.

Spring Wall ArtAmerica, My Country ’tis of Thee

At the end of another tragic week in this Country, why would anyone want to post an image of the American flag? Perhaps you are among those who think this way. There was a time when I might have been sympathetic, but I am, no more. The simple answer is, “Because it is time to recommit to the astonishing vision of founding ideals set forth by our forefathers and mothers.” It is definitely not the time to continue to trash these ideas, compromise them, ‘update’ them into oblivion or replace them with any contemporary drivel for which we bear everyday witness, on-line or on TV. Here is my version of “America, My Country ’tis of Thee,” one of a series of 7 original such posters I designed in the immediate aftermath of 9.11.01 when we were all hurting together, and I thought perhaps such an undertaking might continue to reinforce “Who We Are,” which is what I wound up calling this entire original collection of Americana Posters.

I continue to be pleased to offer these images on the occasion of Memorial Day, 2022, a most special holiday in which we all stop to remember those among us of the highest order who have given their lives in defense of this land.

America the Beautiful,” a poster by George Delany

Below, see the image as it might appear on your wall– although, in reality, you can test this image as it might appear on one of your ACTUAL walls using a feature found right on this website. If you should click on this link, look for a feature called, “Live Preview AR,” AND WALK THRU THE STEPS, using your Safari browser and your iPhone. You will at some moment be able to place this poster selection up against your own wall in your own space, and make a determination as to its desirability, or not. Simple as that!

Battle Hymn of the Republic,” a poster by George Delany

Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? An art print? A photo print? Maybe right now, here as this most beautiful month of May winds down – instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Or, how about a Honey-Bee print? Or, a golf print? Lift someone’s spirits! Giving art, to give prints can be a joyful experience…even in trying times… such as now. When I give a print, it is most assuredly a joyful experience! In these testy, tumultuous times, think about giving an original print this Spring Season

Prints are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the new year moves toward summer. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you. As the Pandemic seems for the moment to have wound down (before the next variant arrives?) what better way to celebrate than…with a spring art print…a lighthouse print, perhaps, or a poster with a patriotic theme, or a Honey-Bee print, or golf print…not bad gift choices for a friend or relative!

Two unusual and decidedly helpful features on my art site: 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, an under-appreciated feature.

Memorial Day is here! There is still time to take advantage of my Flash Memorial Day Sale, good thru the holiday. 20% Off First Print with eMail Sign-up, is the pitch. Order now and you will NOT receive your USA poster print in time for the holiday. But you will be the recipient of an original Americana Poster in 5 -10 working days. In this Americana Poster Gallery you may find any number of visual selections that resonate with your Spring state-of-being. Please take a look.

“Can I brand my posters?” To the question, “Can you brand my posters?” the answer is yes. Yes, I can brand these posters for you – contact me with questions. In short, your logo can be added at a discrete size to the lower right corner of each poster. I will show you a proof prior to production. #brandednonprofits is the hashtag I will incorporate to try to identify this program, on-line.

Exhibit Page, New! Thank you for your enthusiastic support of my new Exhibit page, designed to show off to best advantage how examples of my original images appear when matted, framed and hung on the wall! This will be an expanding feature of my site.

“Business Advice” for day: My apologies, I am not normally late to my blog post, but this week, I am. Family matters and our national catastrophes of recent weeks have been on my mind as they are on the minds of so many Americans during this time of severe unrest. As is true in business, one gets preoccupied. The objective is always to get done what needs to be done, what ought to be done and what must be done, on time, and on budget. Excuses don’t cover it. So here is an example I’m not wild to admit. I am in the process of catching up in any number of activities, of which this is only one. As actors say, “The show must go on!” no matter what. In business, “On time, on budget” has a similar urgency and ring to it, is this not true? Here is one more expression of ‘thoughts and prayers,’ offered on behalf of those who have a lost their lives, their families, their friends, in two events over recent weeks; also to the first-responders, front-line defenders and health-care professionals who make it their business to end these tragedies and to comfort the wounded amidst the aftermath. I am confident, unlike some of our politicians, that thoughts and prayers, along with small gestures in the affirmative offered by each of us over time, help. As our Nation grieves, let us this Memorial Day stop to remember those who have fallen in battle, yes, but also those who have fallen in tragedy without reason…in which they bore not one scintilla of responsibility.

You may find my new NFT art of interest (“Non-fungible tokens”), seen here on Rarible. More to come, a new collection in development as this is written. Have fun building your print collection this year. Try a new Americana Poster print purchase…this Spring! This is all viewable on Linktr.ee.

Spring Art PrintProvidence Skyline

Confession: I have been intrigued with the pixel since it first came on the scene, and somewhere, have the painted evidence to prove it. Here is another example, my effort to explore the phenomenon of pixelation in the creation of an image of the Providence Skyline. The original work is done in acrylic and measures about 60″ x 40.” The view is seen across Kennedy Plaza toward the banks and financial district at the other end of the park, looking generally in an easterly direction. This was quite a bit of fun to paint, and of course, today I could pick up my brush and paint and go in to fuss with it all over again. But so far, am resisting the urge.

Original George Delany, “Providence Skyline

Below is the same image applied to a different setting, akin to a living room. The array of blues stands off the gray wall while the greens in the cityscape touch on the plant in the room, lower left, a simple scene.

“Business Advice” for day: Last weekend, I was fortunate to have dinner with a man I do not know who is devoting his life now to “helping people find reconciliations in their lives.” He is a devout individual. I find this proposition appealing for too many reasons to elaborate upon here, except to say that it does make wonderful business sense to go about our personal and professional lives seeking as many reconciliations as we can muster, does it not? Some people like to say, “Whatever works.” Others say, “If you have no integrity, nothing works.” In this man’s world, if you find reconciliation be it for a small or large problem, short term or long, things work. Heart, mind, soul come together. I think our Country could manifestly use just such an occasion.

Spring Wall DecorMomma Hen in Waiting

Fecundity, Now! Well here you go, a nice, fresh, Spring image of a hen sitting on her eggs, “Momma Hen in Waiting,” as found in my Paint Prints Gallery. Perfect image for this beautiful season when the earth turns green once again, and life in ways big and small, opens up as if for the very first time ever. I bet you’ve never even considered giving any of your “urban friends,” a Chicken Art print, not once! < grin > Perhaps today is the day.

From my Paint Prints Gallery, “Momma Hen in Waiting.”

Below is the actual image scanned from the original painting, an acrylic on wood shingle, approximately 7″ x 5″ though prints come in sizes up to 20″ wide before matte and frame considerations. All these variables can be customized on my site as you walk through the ordering process. Start with the material you wish to print this image on; paper, gloss, matte, satin; acrylic, canvas, Aluminum, even wood. Try an experiment! Print on a material you’ve never seen or utilized before! I favor Aluminum, these days. This is a stunning product, and it will arrive at your doorstep ready to hang, presto!

Spring Wall DecorFirst Amendment Poster

Been awhile since I have highlighted this particular image, “First Amendment Poster.” But given times, given attacks on Free Speech, given equivocations emanating from some of the most privileged, powerful, crooked people I can imagine, thought it useful to take another look at this image, one that frames up our Five Freedoms in simple, elegant, and timely terms. For the dim, and anyone else who may have forgotten, or be otherwise interested, these would include a) Freedom of Religion b) Freedom of the Speech c)Freedom of the Press d) Freedom of Peaceful Assembly and e) Freedom to Redress Grievances. What a beautiful document this is– and it gets even more so as the attacks grow in desperation and ferocity.

Isn’t it fascinating to note the complaints against Elon Musk as he attempts to buy Twitter, outright. The charges to my mind one more time reflect exactly behaviors and conditions created by those leveling the charges. I won’t get into it except to stay I hope the man pushes this deal into the ‘Done’ zone as soon as possible. My sentiments are— the sooner the leftist media monopoly on language, speech, thought, freedom of expression, education and political correctness is broken, the stronger our democratic republic will become, and more vibrant, more resourceful, more determined, and better able to move clearly and purposefully into the 21st Century. In the spirit of “Unalienable Rights,” meaning, those not conferred to us by Government, here is this poster, one of many from my Americana Poster Prints gallery.

Here is a demonstration of the graphic clarity of this poster as it appears in context, meaning, as it is seen on a wall. Bear in mind, you can use two features that exist on my site to imagine how this poster might appear on YOUR wall, very exciting attributes of the site— see below.

“Business Advice” for day: I notice the North Korean leader has warned its people of “imminent nuclear war.” Russia and Belarus practice jet flights and attack patterns, together. Norway and Finland want into NATO. Putin threatens everyone with everything. Our media tell us we have a great Government and the economy is roaring. If things aren’t great, it must be Donald Trump’s fault, they often repeat. Times are plainly weird, if not actually disturbingly “locked and loaded.” And yet, honey-bees are happy and busy day and night. Robins, Chickadees, Titmice, Bluebirds, local Cardinals, even Finches now, all build their nests feverishly every day, around here. The local Doe is becoming an adult deer–she visits here, once in awhile. My gardens still wait to be tilled. Grass needs to be cut and raked. Dandelions and Daffodils are in peak season. Rhododendron buds are large, now. Spring unfolds, it is a truly beautiful and blessed time of year. Is it possible to look upon our personal and professional lives with the same optimism and hope we witness in the natural world? I think, in the aftermath and Spirit of Easter, the answer is yes.

Spring Art Print, “Boy in the Hood 1

Some years ago, in celebration of the chicks we’ve raised on this property, I completed a series of original acrylic paintings on wooden shingles. Small, measuring 7″ x 5″ approximately, these images were painted in acrylic. Thanks to the miracle of digital technology, these images can be well-reproduced on a variety of material including various paper types, finishes, canvas, acrylic, aluminum and even wood. Check this out. You can customize your print as you place the order, right from my site. Here is an example, “Boy in the Hood 1.” In tribute to these wonderful animals, a first promotional video has been completed, here, also new for you to explore.

Boy in the Hood 1,” by George Delany

Below, you see another from this series, “My Golden Fluffball,” also acrylic paint on a wood shingle, converted now to digital prints. Then, there is Rocko, who ruled the coop for some time before being overthrown by his sons in a palace coup, one fine day. This is “My Big Boy 1,” one of my favorites. If you like the vibe of these painted images, if your walls call out for a certain kind of “rural art,” or “natural art,” or “farm art,” or “chicken art,” you may find one of these images a real contribution.

Sun shines, birds build their nests, Honey-bees are cranking up their act, I am ostensibly cleaning up my yard, the garden waits to be tilled, so much to do beginning with each Spring morning. That we should approach each day in our ‘business lives’ with the same callings, yearnings, hopes and aspirations! Here’s to the promise of Easter, today!

Spring Art PrintSpring Narcissus

Amidst anxiety, war, rumors of war, treacherous geo-politics, intransigent national politics, inflation, stubborn incidences of the Pandemic, here we are at Palm Sunday/Monday, the outset of Holy Week. Despite daily doses of loathsome news, I am not alone in any sense of the word in experiencing this time of year with a special blend of Hope and Promise for which I am grateful to my mother, mostly, but also to a host of teachers and patient mentors along the way who spent time, their time, trying to teach me the meaning in the life of Christ, and what his very existence, his short life, was about. This arrival of Palm Sunday and the advent of Holy Week culminates in the experience of the Resurrection on Easter Morning, a story at the center of Western Civilization for 2000+ years, we ought not forget.

My notion of the moment is that we will be sore-pressed to pass along this magnificent and priceless heritage to our children and grandchildren if we should fail to steward, grasp and reinvigorate this tradition with all the witness and vitality we can muster. A pundit remarked lately, after surveying global histrionics, “The furies of history are loose.” He was referring to the order post WWII we have lived in the shelter of for seven or so decades. It is clearly fading, fast, now.

Here is the Narcissus, a photo I took with my trusty little iPhone one morning just like today. Perhaps you may find it a fitting image on this day after Palm Sunday, looking ahead to Easter, this week. Here is to rebirth, and new beginnings.

Spring Narcissus,” by George Delany

Below, see the image in a new room, against a dark color rather than light. The difference couldn’t be clearer. Now, one is not right, the other is not wrong. Both work well. Your taste may be toward the light wall. Mine may prefer the dark. This is one of the satisfactions of art. What is important here is that should you order a print like this, from this website, you can customize the order based on YOUR WALL. Pick a material, a size, a matte, a color, a frame and proper hanging hardware. Done! Your print will arrive ready to hang, no fuss, no muss.

“Business Advice” for day: Hope and Promise in a time of war, sounds like a business mantra, to me. The carry-over is uncommon but the analogy is easy. Much of my business life even to this moment is framed up between these contrasts. Though, when I think about graduating from College, I had no idea at the time the experience of graduation was itself like a slaughter-ritual. We were turned out of the farm and into the slaughter-house without even a clue as to what was about to unfold. Learning the ways of the slaughter house was and remains a lifetime preoccupation. Perhaps Holy Week is a similar ritual– the promise of the triumphant donkey ride into Jerusalem gives way to the terror of and on the cross, and its ultimate significance to humanity. The two are inextricably linked, one to the other. We inherit the outcome, no matter. Hope is real and looms large. Promise is somewhere. Faith takes on new meaning.

If ordered today, your Easter print will likely NOT arrive in time. This is less important now, seems to me. Order anyway. You’ll have a nice print to keep you tuned up to the meaning of the season even as Spring continues its beautiful reveal.

Spring Wall DecorCentral Church Window, Detail

Any purchase of this glorious print will mean a direct contribution to the Gallery Committee at my church- (who do such a terrific job), so thank you very much, in advance. The image is one I took one morning when the sun beamed in thru the eastern transept and lit up this exquisite window. The image here is only part of the entirety, the whole of which expresses the dawn of life, the rising of the Spirit in the person of Jesus Christ, surrounded by Disciples-as-Angels, the Alpha. The work you see here depicted in this photo is authentic and magnificent stained-glass. I am honored to present this print. Across the sanctuary is the Omega, an expression of the Heavenly Realm, but I will save this for another post. You may find similar postings, some of which are completed in purely typographic terms, expressions of the Bible, the Old Testament and the New, in my Faith Prints Gallery.

Central Church Window, Detail,” from my Faith Prints Gallery

Below is another splendid choice of a new print for Easter, for Spring, from John 13:34. The graphic style is one I have developed to call attention to the scriptures, favorite verses I have chosen to try to express in purely typographic terms, and color. See if it may appeal to you. Here is another in the same style, from the Old Testament, Psalm 118: 24. All these images can be seen in my Faith Prints Gallery.

Against the backdrop of terrible news of war, inflation, invasion of our southern border, of duplicities here, there and everywhere, it would seem, doesn’t Spring bring with it in this Easter Season like a candle in the dark the sense that life does begin anew? There is a new beginning? Birds around here certainly seem to think so. Honey-bees return now with fresh spring pollen and nectar, Queen Bees prepare to lay eggs through the summer and into fall. Despite the ubiquitous, bad news, let’s take our cues from the natural world, and in my case, from the Christian tradition of Easter, which is about eternal life when all the trials of this world have passed. I would offer this; whether in business or in personal life, Hope is one of the alluring themes of this still-young, Spring season.

Probably a little lucky if your Easter print arrives in time, now.  But please, give it a try. You may discover prints of a religious nature in order, even after the Easter Season. I invite you to peruse my new Exhibit page, purposed to show off to best advantage how some of my original images appear when matted, framed and hung on the wall! More to come, I promise. 

In my Americana Poster Gallery you may find other visual selections that resonate with your Spring state of being, please take a look. I can brand these posters for you if interested– contact me (#brandednonprofits seems to work). You may find my new NFT art of interest, seen here on Rarible. I will be offering new NFTs of original art as this year continues to unfold. Have fun building your print collection this year.

Spring Wall DecorHoney-Bees 9


Last summer, I photographed bees on frames during various bee-hive inspections. Here are the results of those experiences. New for 2022, check out my Honey-Bee prints. We are all stewards of honey-bees– this is my view. Whether you are an urban person or rural, we have an obligation to these mysterious and magnificent creatures to keep poisons out of their lives, and our own. Imagine, a honey-bee lands on a flower that has been sprayed with something harmful to bees. She has no idea what this is. She may know that when she flies off, she make not make it home. She may fly home, and traipse around her hive among other bees leaving trace amounts of perilous chemicals inside her hive to be absorbed and tracked around by other bees. Micro-quantities of poison may find its way into the production of honey-comb, propolis or honey, itself. All her problems fighting deadly mites and the hideous virus’ they carry are amplified by the presence of man-made chemicals. And then there is this. A honey-bee may live in summer for 6-7 weeks. If she is fortunate, she may leave behind a legacy of less than one-third teaspoon of honey, her lifetime achievement, so to speak. So when you look at that jar of raw honey on your shelf, imagine all the labor, all the bees whose lifetime energy went into the creation of that honey. It is all an astonishing proposition, isn’t it?

New Honey-Bee Prints for Spring, 2022 by George Delany

Below, see “Honey Bees 6, a beautiful study of bees in motion on a hot summer day, doing their best to ignore the serious intrusion of this beekeeper. You see, these are not ordinary journalist photos, recording the event. I have taken steps in the creation of this image to accentuate the ways in which I experience and see the motion of bees in their astonishing environment. The whole thing is a miracle, mark my words. After three summers I now know why beekeepers fall in love, in a sense, with these animals. My own mantra has become, “Bees know everything.” If you haven’t had this moment among these animals, you may not grasp it. But for many of us, honey-bees, with an evolutionary history of a couple of million years, long before the arrival of homo-sapiens, know what they are doing…in the most elegant and breath-taking fashion.

Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? An art print? Maybe right now, here in early Spring – instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. How about a Honey-Bee print? Lift someone’s spirits! Giving art, to give prints can be a joyful experience…even in a dismal time such as now. When I give a print, it most assuredly is a joyful experience. In these trying times, think about giving an art print this Easter season.

Prints are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the new year moves into latter February. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you. As the Pandemic seems for the moment to wind down, what better way to celebrate than…with an early spring art print…a lighthouse print, perhaps, or a poster with a patriotic theme, or a Honey-Bee print; not a bad gift choice for a friend or relative.

Two unusual and decidedly helpful features on my art site: The firstWALL 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, an under-appreciated feature.

“Business Advice” for day: As Spring weather arrives, the garden season picks up, birds lay their eggs and raise their young, and Queen bees lay their eggs by the thousands, each day, might we do what bees do…in our own lives? In a beehive, there are two requirements for success: survival, and prosperity. It’s a simple proposition, isn’t it? Thank you for looking at these images and thinking about Honey-Bees.

With Easter and Holy Week in mind, now, you may find some prints of a more religious nature in order. Take a quick look. And while you are at it, please peruse my new Exhibit page, purposed to show off to best advantage how some of my original images appear when matted, framed and hung on the wall!

Spring Art “Honey Bees 9”

Spring! No serious winter weather in awhile, Daylight Savings Time is here, garden catalogs come in the mail, neighbors talk of planting indoor seeds, thermonuclear war hasn’t happened, and I have some new images to present. Life is good.

Last season, I took photos of my honeybees from time to time. Here are some of the results of those sessions. I used my Nikon OR my iPhone– admit I have not been consistent in this. Then, in Photoshop, I have experimented with ways to lift these images out of the ‘journalistic’ realm into the more experimental, and lo-and-behold, this is what I’ve found. If you look closely you will see signs of the fluid motion of the bees, accentuated. Then, too, I have added a touch of paint-brush which shows up in the very light areas toward the perimeter of the image. Nine images to date are in my Photograph Gallery. I invite you to check them out, most especially if you are, like me, a honey-bee lover. Here is Honey Bees 9.” Don’t be bashful, blow up the image and take a look.

Honey Bees 9” by George Delany

Below is the image depicted above, nice and large. Note, the fluidity of the bees is evident in a visually arresting manner. Sizes in this first series of honey bee images vary. I expect over time these images will become more uniform in size and standardized. But here it is, below. I am most pleased to present this prototype image here at the very outset of Spring, 2022.

From my photo collection of my honey bees last summer, here is ‘Honey Bees 9.’

Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? An art print? Maybe right now, here in very early Spring – instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Lift someone’s spirits! Giving art, giving prints can be a joyful experience…even in a dismal time such as now. When I give a print, it most assuredly is a joyful experience– in these trying times, think about giving an art print this Easter season.

Prints are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the new year moves into latter February. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you. As the Pandemic seems now to wind down, what better way to celebrate than…with an early spring art print…a lighthouse print, perhaps, or a poster with a patriotic theme, not a bad gift choice for a friend or relative.

Two unusual and decidedly helpful features on my art site: 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.

“Business Advice” for day: Linked In, among others, values such advice, so I take pains to offer a thought or two with each post on the subject. This week, with the introduction of these new honey-bee images, I offer the following: Bees live for two goals; to survive, and prosper. That’s it in a nutshell. Given the current situation here at home but in so many places in the world, isn’t it a good idea, doesn’t it make a certain kind of sense that we might look to this miraculous animals and how they live together from the point of view that we can learn a lesson or two. When you see a honey bee, she is in the last third of her life. She has completed many chores, tasks and jobs that life in the hive requires. Then, she is accorded an opportunity to forage. If you’ve never seen a honey bee take off from the hive in the morning sun against a green back drop of trees and blue sky above, the bee, herself, lit up by the rays of sunlight as she arcs her way up and out of sight, i urge you to undertake a moment to witness this sort of wonderful event. She ‘has it going on,’ in the best sense of the word. And at the end of her days, the typical honey-bee will leave less than a third of a teaspoon of honey as her legacy to the hive. She lives only for 6 or 7 weeks in summer. So those last two weeks are committed to the forage, the gathering of pollen and nectar, her life mission, in its last and perhaps most important phase. I find it an extremely moving, a stirring proposition, personally. Let us find ways to meld our personal and professional lives in such a manner that our own human hive might benefit by the little legacy we attempt to leave behind when our own days are done– as honey bees commit themselves to doing day and night, all year long.

With Easter and Holy Week in mind, now, you may find some prints of a more religious nature in order. I would invite to to take a look. And while you are at it, please peruse my new Exhibit page, purposed to show off to best advantage how some of my original images appear when matted, framed and hung on the wall!

Winter PrintsThe Star Spangled Banner

The most popular from myWho We Are,” collection of Americana Posters, here is a version of the Star-Spangled Banner, one that incorporates the American flag that hung in front of this house on 9.11.01. At a time when Ukraine is under a brutal Russian assault, when democracies throughout the West are threatened, when our own fragile Democracy is under relentless trivialization, diminution and assault, here is my contribution.

Star-Spangled Banner” by George Delany

Below is a more detailed look at at the poster. The first two printings were produced via offset lithography. These have sold out. You can order this print on demand, now, and customize the way the print is produced prior to being mailed. When you receive it, the print will exemplify your particular choices– printing material, matte, frame, and hanging hardware. It will be ready to hang right out of the box.

From my Americana Collection, the ‘Star Spangled Banner.”

Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? An art print? Maybe right now, with Spring a couple of weeks away– instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Lift someone’s spirits! Giving art, giving prints can be a joyful experience…even in a dismal time such as now. When I give a print, it most assuredly is a joyful experience– most especially during these “Drearies” of early March.  

Prints are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the new year moves into latter February. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you. As the Pandemic may be now winding down, what better way to celebrate than…with a late-winter art print…a lighthouse print, perhaps, or a poster with a patriotic theme, not a bad gift choice for a friend or relative, post President’s Day

“Business Advice” for day: On this day, over a million Ukrainians have left their homes for another land. Many do not know where they are going or where they will wind up. Video clips depict civilians being shelled as they try to escape the horror of the Russian onslaught, “Putin’s War,” a nightmare. For millions around the world, “Doing the right thing,” has taken on a new and urgent call. People from the world over are reportedly registering for Bed and Breakfast reservations in the Ukraine, having no intention to visit Ukraine. The reservation is simply a means of transferring money to Ukrainians in dire need of help. Social media support, such as it is. The creativity Ukrainians display in developing tools and weapons to fight the Russian army is over-the-top impressive. Have you seen the devices welded together and thrown into streets to disable, hobble and slow down the caravan of Russian tanks and armored vehicles headed toward Kiev? Old ladies making Molotov cocktails. Men returning from foreign lands to fight for the life of Ukraine. We can only hope that in the operation of our businesses throughout this historic period, our passions, commitments, principles and underlying values align in any manner even remotely similar to that which Ukrainian citizens demonstrate before the world to be central to the core character of human-kind. Let us offer our own “Glory to Ukraine” prayers to the Cosmos at this critical moment when the global order seems so wrangled and imperiled.

Winter Wall ArtNew York America Poster”

In this image, the American flag used to produce this print hung in front of this home on the tragic day of 9.11.01. I used the flag in number of thematic series calling up American hymns and verse that in my opinion have helped define who we are as Americans. So, at the time, I called the first series of seven posters the “Who We Are Collection.” Of these, the Star-Spangled Banner has been the most popular, and seen two printings, to date. “God Bless America” is the second most popular; very few of these remain, frankly. However, on my website here, you can order any of these images in digital, on-demand format. I am exceedingly pleased about this. Here is “New York America,” from the Americana Posters Gallery. Beneath the flag show in this image, note the verse from the hymn, “America.” You see here the print as it appears on Aluminum. I have to admit, this is a striking, even spanky image. It arrives ready to hang on the wall.

“New York, America,” from my Americana Poster Collection, this one printed on Aluminum

Below, you see an exciting prototype, a glass print, a Fracture, as it is named. It expresses an image that is a photo-collage. In the image, the utterly notorious Schumer and Pelosi ride an Ass, a donkey, carrying their own, branded video camera to record the action. The title of this work from 2019 is, “Nice Job on Border, Mr. President.” Given the passage of time, I think this little image carries a certain gravity about it I could not have foreseen. I’m sure I don’t have to rehash the details. The print is on the small size, about 14″ x 11.5″ inches. It, too, arrives ready to hang on the wall. From my Limited Edition Gallery.

“Business Advice” for day: The siege of Ukraine continues. It is horrifying, is it not. What? 35 countries voted in the UN NOT to condemn Russia. Talk is, China coordinated this attack to come just AFTER the Olympics. Ominously, monstrous days appear to be just ahead as Russia encircles cities in Ukraine preparing to turn them into rubble, it is reported. People all over the world pray now for Ukraine. “We Are All Ukrainians,” is heard throughout the world, and it seems true and yet wholly inadequate to the moment. I have seen “Trending on Twitter, World War III,” in response to Russia’s threat to go Nuclear. Astonishing to read, much less to consider. We are in a time of peril. Prayers and actions from citizens all over the world unfold, thank goodness. Nations take stock. The course, the solution, the resolution, all unclear. We brace, and pray, again.

Winter Wall ArtPreAmble

Don’t you just love this opening phrase, “We the People…of the United States”? What could be more inspiring, most especially when seen in the context of Canadian friends witnessing their most essential freedoms cut down on a whim like so many exhausted corn stalks in September. And then, the follow-up phrase is equally inspiring, and astonishing, “...in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common Defense, promote the general welfare and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” What a Constitutional Convention that must have been, back in 1787. Doesn’t it resonate loudly, even today? In honor of President’s Day, yesterday, here is my version in graphic form, of the PreAmble to the Constitution of the United States.

The “Preamble to the Constitution,” a graphic poster from my Americana Collection.

Below, see the same image in the same matte, the same frame, hung in a different room, a sitting-room, with a different wall color. Striking, but simple. A friend recently purchased a print on my website and failed to realize the framing capability! So his print arrived in a matte, very nice…but no frame! Do take a few minutes to puzzle out the framing capabilities on this website. You have a choice of metal or wood in a variety of finishes, styles and measurements. You also will see differing ways to hang the work. So when your piece arrives UPS or USPS, it will be ready to hang, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. “Preamble to the Constitution of the United States,” looking very contemporary if I don’t say so, myself.

“Business Advice” for day: Today has to be a sad day for millions of our friends and neighbors in Canada. Today has to be a tragic day for many Ukrainians. Today has to be a foreboding day if you live on Taiwan. Today has to be a frightening day if you wake up in parts of Chicago or in other, similarly troubled American cities. Today has to be an infuriating day if you live along the American side of our southern border. The world is in a fix. Russian soldiers are moving into Ukraine as this is written. We have been advised by one journalist that our long-established world order is now being altered, deliberately, and that we must gird for what is to come. I find this to be a generally true statement, and to reflect a perspective I share. “Gird,” is right. We’re girding all around, in my world. As something of a mild anti-dote, reading these Founding Documents that so vigorously, imaginatively and even courageously reflect the genius of our Founding Fathers…is uplifting and reassuring. We recommit to these ideals. We recommit to these visions. We recommit to these principles. We recommit to these foundational mythologies. We pray for our leaders and our citizenry. We the People must gird now– it is no laughing matter, seems to me. In my Americana Poster Gallery you may find other visual selections that resonate with your state of February mind and being, please take a look.

Winter Art “Honey! …W A T ?”

Happy Valentine’s Day! One day late. But here is one in a series of sketches on Valentine’s Day I completed using oil crayons on warm paper, in anticipation of this wonderful holiday. You can see the selection here on Instagram— but there are no prints available yet. Today, I will be experimenting with a NEW FORMAT, a NEW MATERIAL on which to print these images, very exciting. So if you have an interest in such a print of this image, or any other, I expect to be able to offer them, shortly. Contact me, please.

Oil crayon sketch on warm paper, “Honey! …W A T ?

In honor of the reported fact that most if not all who attended the Super Bowl stood up for the beautiful singing of America the Beautiful and Star-Spangled Banner, and with the recognition of President’s Day coming up early next week, here is my version of the print. This print utilizes a flag that hung outside this home on 9.11.01. It served as the basis for the design of seven original such posters I created to help bring some sense of recovery after the event. I called the series at the time, the “Who We Are Collection.” Still works for me. You can see this assortment on my Americana Posters gallery, here. The Star-Spangled Banner poster remains the most popular of the series over the years. God Bless America stands as a close second.

America the Beautiful” from my Americana Poster Gallery

“Business Advice” for day: The world seems very much a “locked-and-loaded” place, these days. Russia and the Ukraine. North Korea threatening everyone in range, the weird, #genocidegames in Beijing, Canada struggling to hold on to its basic freedoms, weird American politics, a straining economy, masks and mask mandates on our children, fear of COVID, so much to pay attention to.

Now is the time for each of us in small ways to work toward the success of our Nation…and not just our Nation.  So here is to your efforts to work toward success, and to mine.

Winter ArtPemaquid Point Light

What are you giving this Valentine’s Day? Consider an original print of Pemaquid Point Light— as a friend just did! Thank you for your order! Lighthouse art, I admit, I’ve never thought too much about. Turns out, because the lighthouse stands so powerfully in the imagination as a symbol of hope against the vastness of the sea, the storms of life, the toss-and-turn quality of every day life, people love lighthouse art. You can see a variety of my little lighthouse paintings here. Each one is painted at a scale of about 7″ x 5″ on a wooden shingle. Prints are offered from the original shingle painting.

Winter Wall ArtCastle Hill Light

At the Inn at Castle Hill, Newport, Rhode Island, it is not difficult to walk the path and wind up at a promontory from which you can view this striking lighthouse. I keep coming back to this image from among my assorted lighthouse paintings. The image has a power about it, in the sky, in the sea, in the tumult of the waves and currents, I find appealing. Other viewers have commented to me that this is true…for them, also. Here is Castle Hill Light. Framed prints in a number of different materials are available from this website.

Castle Hill Light,” hangs in a business setting.

Below, see “Castle Hill Light,” in a bedroom setting. Note, the frame color, border and matte size are in nice proportion to the simplicity and power of the lighthouse image, itself. You can adjust these variables on my website– and plug in your preferred materials, sizes and finishing techniques. With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, perhaps such a gift print is in order?

“Business Advice” for day: We have weathered the first blizzard in some number of years. Around here, we got about 24.” In Sharon, MA, not far away a reported 30″ fell from the skies. We are now three days past this storm and the clean up continues. I have yet to get clear a number of trails, porches and paths on this property. Deer come to the house to nibble on Rhododendron and Myrtle– food supplies are thin, I conclude. A couple of young deer look skinny, they eat with a certain ravenousness. In my view, we live in these times, many of us, with a certain ravenousness, a certain disquiet, discontent, a hunger, a distinct certainty that times must and will be better– safer, freer, more in keeping with our God-given human spirits. This is my notion of the moment.

For many small businesses, this certainly must be the attitude at least among some of the owners who have seen trying times over the past two years. Many continue to see trying times and will for the foreseeable future. These times are made more difficult by a Government that floods the economy with cash and positions itself via masks, mandates and the withholding of certain helpful pharmaceuticals to exact controls of one kind or another over our population for indeterminate periods of time. We notice. We size it all up. We will continue to ask a lot of questions— a lot of questions, let me reiterate. In time, the Truth will come forth and prevail. We will understand much more of this period in history than we do at present. Once again, the spirit of Hope and determination is in the air. Let it be so.

Winter ArtSpring Point Ledge Lighthouse

Inadvertently, I stumbled across a collection of little acrylic paint studies originally completed on wooden shingles at a scale of about 7″ x 5,” though some vary. These are charming little painted sketches some of which I offer on my website, right now. I will add more in this current year, if plans hold. Here is “Spring Point Ledge Light,” in South Portland, Maine, from that collection.

From a series of such paintings on wooden shingles, “Spring Point Ledge Light

I admit, I have under-appreciated the extent to which lighthouses are cherished by art-viewers and lovers. Lighthouse art reflects the almost sanctified role lighthouses are seen to have played since their invention and proliferation up and down our coasts. They are seen as magnets, beacons in the dark for the saving of human life, their light worshipped by sailers, sea-farers, and all those who make their living on the sea. The very idea of a saving, piercing light cutting thru relentless darkness of night or swirling, stormy skies and seas, often rocky, amidst the tenuousness of life on any kind of boat is itself a sanctified idea, is it not? These ideas have grown on me in recent years, likely due to having done this little series of painted images on wooden shingles. Here is another look at the same image, “Spring Point Ledge Light,” in a different context utilizing a different wall color. What a difference!

“Business Advice” for day: War in Ukraine looms. The ‘Genocide Olympics’ in China, as some call the upcoming games, appear ominous for our national athletes as they have been warned to use ‘burner phones’ to avoid Marxist authorities hassling them in attempts to steal data; Inflation consumes wage increases. Old politicians continue to run our country and economy into the ground. Our debt into the ionosphere. Covid is making a comeback. Questions about the efficacy of our new vaccines arise and disturb. Scammers and spammers attempt to rewrite our history, to destroy our binding myths and generate division, contempt, condemnation and suspicion wherever possible. Crypto-currencies hold a certain allure against the overwhelming odds of peace and prosperity in this New Year. Times are odd, are they not? So what is the best antidote to live purposeful, ‘mostly peaceful’ lives against the this turmoil? As I have said, before, live in the Spirit of hope and possibility each day. It is a proposition easy to state but challenging to undertake. So let’s undertake it, together. How about it?

Winter ArtMy Really Important Life #20

Buying a print for yourself or for someone else can be a joy. Is a joy. I don’t do enough of it, myself. Here in the New Year, I’m going to make it a point to give many more prints to friends over the course of the coming year.

If your chosen topic is a bit unconventional, the stakes go up…or down, as the case may be. Here is “My Really Important Life #20.” This print is part of a series of such paintings I completed some years ago. The aim was to call attention to our fascination with electronic devices as a central feature in life. In each case, I paint a subject with one, two, or three electronic devices plus a cheeseburger. That’s it. One person and only one person “working” in a spare environment. Whatever life is happening, whatever is going on…does so only because of the connection between the devices and the individual. Now, this is strange deal, isn’t it? And yet, how typical it has become. Hence, the title of the series.

My Really Important Life #20,” part of series on topic.

Below, see the same image in a different setting. All components are the same, except the wall color and the room, itself. When you order this print, “My Really Important Life #20,” or any other print from my site, you have quite a nice variety of sizes, print materials, mattes, frames and installation techniques to consider.

The purpose is to make “buying art” on-line easy, desirable and gratifying. No longer do you have to go anywhere to get done– no frame shop, no gallery, no retail outlet, whatsoever. The package arrives likely by UPS…ready to hang! Hence, the joy/s in buying a nice print, or even an original. Good therapy for a tumultuous time? It is…for me.

“Business Advice” for day: Here mid-January in the still-New Year 2022, the weather has been as stormy as our politics. I try to “do some art” every day, or every other day– my current fascination finding its focus in the utilization of oil-crayons, a medium I haven’t used in decades, and one I’ve never, until now, explored in a serious manner. What a gratifying experience this is! So, I guess one can extrapolate…and conclude that perhaps amidst all the uncertainty of modern life, one can stretch a little bit, find a new medium, a new means of self-expression to pursue. One reward for such an undertaking is…you develop a new means of communicating, interacting and sharing…with family and friends. This is a valuable exercise, in my view. I would commend it to anyone, remembering (in my case) art as a medium is open to everyone.

Winter Art, “Hoover Dam Bridge, Instagram

That long stretch between New Year’s Day and April 1 when Spring arrives around here, has begun. It is a long one. Winter arrives now– the temperature here yesterday morning was around 7 degrees, pretty chilly. I find myself reflecting on a trip west when we found ourselves in temperatures of 117 degrees, or thereabouts, at the Hoover Dam. Here is a picture taken via Instagram, of that day. We were moved to see one of the great engineering marvels of the 20th century, even in such heat. I recall sunlight bouncing off the surrounding concrete onto my lower legs– memorable! But at this time of year here along the Southern New England Coast, an image like this is pacifying and provocative at the same time. I’m recommending it! < grin > Here is “Hoover Dam Bridge, the Instagram.”

If you like the idea of a “bucket list” photo hanging in your bedroom, perhaps this photo depicts the sort of presence such a photo would exude. Why it’s almost majestic! Remember, you can customize your print on my website– you can consider a paper print, acrylic print, wood print, canvas print, and even an aluminum print! You can add a matte at various dimensions, you can select just the right frame; materials and installation hardware, all with a few clicks of your mouse. Voila! A beauty will arrive at your door ready to hang.

“Business Advice” for day: Early in this New Year when temps are cold, politics are trying…and weird, inflation picks up steam, our national adversaries seem emboldened to cause trouble, our Department of Justice refers to our parents as “Domestic Terrorists,” citizens don’t seem certain as to their own gender, families struggle against myriad challenges, I will offer once again the same word…and idea found in the Rhode Island State Motto…”Hope.” We can “manifest” hope. Live into the word, into the ideal, into our thoughts and actions each day, contributing ‘random acts of kindness,’ where we can, weathering each dust-up, storm and wind-blown hiatus until sunlight once again lights up the distant sky. When is Hope not a good idea? Indeed, Hope is itself a manifestation of Faith. As the Book of Hebrews reminds us, “Faith is the sum of things hoped for, evidence of things, unseen.” Let us be brave this New Year and carry the Hope banner, high. A friend advises, “Happy New Year! And Heaven at the end of your days!” Hope.

Winter Art, “Amazing Grace

This is a time for Grace, is it not? A virus grips the world. Countries are armed to the teeth. Even Space is a war zone, now. Debt threatens many nations. Crypto Currency mystifies everyone but the young. Pollution chokes essential biological systems. And we continue to do today what we did yesterday. In this, an election year, given the rhetoric we can expect, and many varieties of BS, yes, this is a time for Grace. Here is a print from my Americana Collection, “Amazing Grace,” designed after the attack of 9.11.01.

Below, see the same image in the bedroom. This image deserves a space on the bedroom wall, don’t you think? Grace…in the bedroom? Yes, I think so. Note, the wall-color changes, but the print and frame are the same.

“Business Advice” for day: Advent has come and gone. Christmas, the Christmas story has come and gone. Now, we find ourselves in the Season of Epiphany, the time of the year when the story of the Christ Child unfolds in a surprising way. Is there such a time and place in your life for the Season of Epiphany? Isn’t this possibility related to Grace operating in the world? I would argue, yes, Grace has a lot to do with the arrival of Epiphany. This is the season of New Beginnings, leading up to Spring, which celebrates the rebirth of life, of the season, of the world. It is not too simple an idea to suggest that both in our business lives and personal lives, New Beginnings is a big topic, an important topic, that begs our personal involvement, commitment, even passion. Time to get to it!

Winter settles in. Ponds and lakes freeze, finally. Honey Bees work feverishly to generate enough heat to survive to Spring. Humankind hunkers down in a time of extended Pandemic to make ends meet, in many cases. Governments are confused and belligerent in their efforts to push citizens around in the name of safety, of course. Confusion, even ignorance permeates those who run our schools, our agencies of Government and our political elites. Grounding to underlying ideas, key concepts, fundamental principles seems a bit thin, these days. But a reawakening is coming. This house-of-cards will fail. We will get another crack at rebuilding our society. Whether in personal or business life, time to keep the Faith.

Fall Art “John 3:16” A Christmas Print?

From John 3:16, the entire Christian story in one verse…an excellent Christmas gift print? Why not? In the tumult most of us have come to know in recent years, perhaps a change of impulse, a different kind of Christmas gift is in order, this year? A shift…from the temporal to the eternal, a conscious embrace of the Almighty?

John 3:16” a strong gift idea, this year?

Then, perhaps this typographic work with its quiet color palette would also work in a different kind of setting– all ingredients remain the same except the room and the wall color. Here it is. The sitting room, one in which the verse commands the center of attention, and is a very quick read. Comprehension is easy and straightforward. More prints like this can be seen in my Faith Prints Gallery.

“Business Advice” for day: This is the Advent season, the season of hope, of waiting, of patience, of prayer, of giving, when many Christians try to turn away from the secular to focus on the eternal, the story of Christianity, the driving force behind western civilization for 2000+ years– now under attack in many corners of our society. One could say…one’s internal life is the source behind the external. Do you participate in the Christmas story? It’s not too late.

Fall Wall DecorSlush Foot in Winter

Slush Foot in Winter,” was taken after a wet walk in the cold. I was nearly home, weather was deteriorating. Street surface was still visible but only thru snowy tire tracks. It was quickly disappearing. The photo captures something interesting about the months just ahead– the uncertainty of so much of life, winter life, in particular.

Slush Foot in Winter,” from my Photo Prints collection

Below, see the same image with a different wall color, different context– a business environment. The whole image hangs together to make a statement about a moment in winter. What is happening? What will happen? What is behind? What is ahead? What is coming down from the sky? How much further? I have grown to like this photo. The gradients of gray tone are interesting, tones run from the almost pure white to the almost pure black. For those interested in this print, “Slush Foot in Winter,” pixilated, I have a nice image available for sale. Tones pixilated are especially appealing to one’s eye.

“Business Advice” for day: I’m shy on business advice, these days, exhausted by the plight of our debt, risks to our nation, troubles and bumps in the economy, and political divisions that in many regards we ought to be able to dissolve in the name of common good and destiny, but cannot. But this is ADVENT. We wait. We are patient. We are hopeful. We believe in the myths that hold our society together, among them, the story of Christmas and the witnesses of the New Testament. We withstand ridicule by those who claim to know what is best for all of us while cancelling us out– at the same time. It is all infuriating, in a moment. And yet, Advent, the story of Hope, is here, and many of us make every effort to live in this spirit. My “Business Advice,” such as it is, is to live in the spirit of Hope…we can identify and hold on to, right now.

Holiday Print DecorNew York State in August

Driving home from Ontario across the New York State Thruway can be, of all things, an exhilarating experience. Here is an example, “New York State in August.” We’re exhausted as the day winds down, having driven hours already, with some few left to go until we can find a dinner off the highway, somewhere. Here is a most modest example of how beautiful New York State can appear. The sky offers up an abundance of clouds, but thru the clouds sunlight beams down illuminating the rich, pastoral landscape that characterizes New York thru these miles. Off in the distance you see basking in sun a farm, the barn, the silo, the highlight of the roof as if winking at me under streaming clouds. See other samples in my Photo Prints Gallery.

“Business Advice” for day: Daylight Savings Time is long gone. Thanksgiving Day has come and gone in the blink of an eye. Cold temperatures have moved in, though the weather itself has not been too bad, good for stacking wood and cleaning chimneys, last minute tasks just before winter settles in. Isn’t this a good reminder for business life, too? One has to plan for the hard winter to come along. One has to prepare for the cold, wind and rain. And then, once the work has been done, you hope and pray that when spring arrives, you’ll be here, and OK, able to meet the new season with a smile and a determined effort to begin, again. I think so.

The holiday season is upon us, now. Shopping, cooking, planning, mailing, phoning. Not everyone loves it, but I do. Christmas music, especially. It settles me, grounds me, roots me in myth and tradition and hope for the future….as I have been fortunate to know all my life. So, yes, we stack wood every day now, late, but still determined to get it done before the first big storms of winter arrive. A great metaphor for business life, as I see it.

I urge you to make your art print purchases now…avoid headaches, back-logs, back-orders, and supply-chain frustrations, take a little time to get this done, today

If you might consider a living room, sitting room or bedroom, perhaps the image looks more like this. The Jackman region of Northern Maine remains one of my favorite places, anywhere.

Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? Maybe right now, this fall. Instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Remember, too, the gift-giving season is here, now– time to plan and shop to avoid back-logs, shortages and supply-chain concerns. Slowdowns are expected. Product availability is not a certainty. Off-shore container ships are backed up for weeks. So order your art prints now— ahead of the coming rush and frustrations.

Prints are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the year moves toward a new beginning in 2022. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you.  In our post-pandemic period, what better way to celebrate than…with a fall art print…perhaps even a gift to a friend or relative. 

Two unusual and decidedly helpful features on my art site: 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, an under-appreciated feature.

“Business Advice” for day: Time for a week of reflection? Ready to fast…the day before Thanksgiving? I am. In business, and in life, generally, taking a pause, stepping back, trying to identify that which sustains us, seems an essential part of a conscious life, does it not? That’s what this week has come to symbolize, despite the best efforts of some to trash the whole ideal. I’m not having it. For me, a meditation arrives that has a lot in common with this photo, noted at the top. May you find a similar moment this Thanksgiving.

Here at Thanksgiving, 2021, amidst all our trials, I urge you to make your art print purchases now…avoid headaches, back-logs, back-orders, and supply-chain frustrations, take a little time to get this done, today

Fall Wall ArtBattle Hymn of the Republic

Last week…we fell behind. My operating system became officially obsolete, not a condition anyone wants to have. But now, we’re back up and running, so far without difficulty. Last week, we celebrated our Veterans. So this week, I will post these images to honor our Vets, as should have been the case a week ago. Here is an image someone just ordered…the Battle Hymn of the Republic, on raw canvas! I have asked the individual to send me a picture of the product after he gets it opened. Thank you!

This image is one I developed as part of the “Who We Are,” series, designed just after the grotesque events of 9.11.01. The series won Gold Award from Graphis Poster Annual, and was later admitted to our national Library of Congress.

Battle Hymn of the Republic, designed by George Delany

Below, you see this same image in a different setting, as if hanging in your living room. Remember, you can customize each purchase as to size, materials, matte, frame and installation, and “imagine” the final result on YOUR WALL, right from the ordering interface on my website.

“Business Advice” for day: I was not expecting my computer operating system to suddenly become obsolete. Understanding this process as it was unfolding was tricky; unfamiliar, and aggravating. I Googled around about it, spoke with numerous experts, received all sorts of irrelevant to bad advice– including tactics I’m very thankful I did NOT pursue, such as purchasing new security certificates. All at once, I came upon an individual at Apple Support who was invaluable. He patiently guided me thru the whole process from stem to stern– and had he not been so utterly competent and willing, I would still be off-line, this very week. Responding to the unexpected, in business and in life, is a big topic. Finding resources who can solve problems under strenuous and undesirable circumstances is critical, too, is it not, even if the resource comes unexpectedly? I learned a lot in this entire affair, and will know where my resources come from next time my computer life turns upside down. This is what we struggle to do, is it not? Learn by our experience.

Urge you to make your art print purchases now…avoid headaches, back-logs, back-orders, and supply-chain frustrations, take a little time to get this done, today.

Fall Wall ArtWorking Stiff 4

This little group of fewer than half a dozen original paintings in acrylic on masonite board was completed almost fourteen years ago. I could build on it, right now. The topic engages me. The degree to which this kind of “human activity” has taken over our very lives is a source of constant fascination and yes, consternation. What is going on? I have no idea, but I like painting it. Here is “Working Stiff 4.” Available in a variety of sizes and materials, mattes, frames and hanging techniques. A great Christmas and holiday gift idea? I think so, but you make the determination. You can see this in my Painting Prints Gallery.

Working Stiff 4,” from George Delany Art

Unlike the business wall setting, above, what you see below is a living room context, same image, different wall color, somewhat different mood. See a couple of other entries in this collection, such as Working Stiff 3— someone at home plunking away on her screen. Or perhaps you may find Working Stiff 2 of similar interest. Yes, in the New Year 2022, I may take up this theme again. It is one of my favorites, I admit.

“Business Advice” for day: Last night on Sixty Minutes was broadcast a most fascinating segment on what is coming…in tech. Specifically, the future of the human race. This is a riveting topic, in my view. I have no idea what to make of much of it, and yet the topic still rivets me. I have sent this link to our adult children. It is worth their while and mine, to give the topic due consideration and to “chip-in” in positive ways where we believe such a contribution will be positive. Here is another one of these complex and in many cases vexing topics to entertain. What we carry forward in our personal lives will no doubt be reflected in how we choose to live out our professional lives, also– is this not true? And the reverse is also likely to be true, is it not? It is not too early to pay attention.

A word to the wise— if you are considering art prints as gifts this Christmas gift-giving season, do so early. Do so now. Avoid the hassles that certainly seem to be on the horizon. Sooner is better– seems to be what is hanging palpably in the air, this year.

Fall Wall ArtJohn 4:24 Verse for Times

In tumultuous times, perhaps a graphic expression of what many consider to be among our culture’s many valuable and underpinning ideas is in order: John 4:24, “God is a Spirit: they that worship him must worship him in spirit and truth.” I find it useful to return to thoughts and expressions of this sort at a moment when for some, every aspect of our underlying society is ripe for ridicule, criticism and rejection. I will continue to stand with our underlying society’s understandings and ideals, and not against.

Let me put this another way. I will make every effort to ignore and refute daily the odious and infamous Cancel Culture and its cousin-attacks on the foundations of American Society. Consequently, here you see this image in the context of a living room, where the cool dark, gray-blue wall color highlights the colors in the print itself cast against an ample, white field.

John 4:24,’ our wall print suggestion, this week.

Below, you see the same typographic image expressed in a style that highlights select colors of the text in warm and cool colors, one of which is used in the wall color, around the print, itself. This image and those designed in the same style are unusual, not, generally speaking, popular. People find the unique graphic nature of prints in this family, inspiring. They make great gifts. I am grateful for your interest in this work.

John 4:24,” wall art for the time?

Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? Maybe right now, this fall, instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print.

“Business Advice” for day: We are right now in the midst of a rough three-day N’or Easter. We have seen high winds, much rain. Our roads are littered with limbs, power is out. Neighbors are calling one another to check in. “Are you alright?” “What do you need?” “Can I bring anything to you?” We attempt to look out for one another, both on-line, and in person. Perhaps as many issues of the day prompt so many sorts of anxieties among us all, isn’t it a good idea that we keep these sentiments in mind day-to-day as we go about often mundane tasks of going to work, completing the obligatory while planning for the short and long-term future…all at the same time? I think biblical verses (such as that offered in this blog-post) afford us a means of keeping positive, thinking about the necessary, looking outside ourselves even while we take care of the essential. We are rooted in timeless ideas that ground us, that founded us, that guide us, still, thank goodness. Doesn’t our personal life mirror our professional? Our professional life mirrors our personal? Both are in sync around important underlying ideas, one of which is, “God is a Spirit…worship Him in spirit and in truth.”

Fall Wall DecorMaine Lobster Buoys in Fall

One spanking cold day in fall while visiting family in York Harbor, Maine, I found myself out on the coast in front of this buoy shed. Click. Somehow it seems to capture the clean air, the brilliant colors, the coming season…amidst the work of humankind evidenced by the buoys hanging on the side of the shed. Here is “Maine Lobster Buoys in Fall.”

“Maine Lobster Buoys in Fall,” by George Delany

Here in a setting more like a living room, the wall color changes from dark to light, but the color remains in the blue family though of a very different value. Values often mean the difference between good…and really unusual, do they not? “Maine Lobster Buoys in Fall,” from my Photographic Gallery.

Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? Maybe right now, this fall, instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print.

“Business Advice” for day: Diligence pays off. In mid-October, there are myriad chores to do before the cold weather arrives. We relish both the temperatures and colors, during this beautiful stretch of the year. Cleaning up the beehives, the barn, the property…stacking wood, cleaning the woodstove, the basement, the property, securing windows, filling the tank– would like to keep the furnace off for as long as possible. A little effort now will bring assurances for the harsh winter, ahead. But selecting some fall photo prints is in the mix. What sorts of images do you hang in fall?

Fall Wall Decor, “Honey-Bumble Bee Dance

These days have just passed us by…but here is a trace of what goes on as summer winds down. What you see is BOTH a bumble and honey bee on the same plant dancing around collecting what they collect. Check out Honey-Bumble Bee Dance in my Instagram Collection if you’d like a bright, lively, upbeat image added to your print collection, such a nice image…so suitable for fall.

Honey-Bumble Bee Dance,” by George Delany

Below, you see the same image adapted to a small business office. Note the wall color changes, but the impact is similarly strong. Since these originals are taken on an iPhone they cannot be blown up too large without risking a breakdown in resolution, so I have tried to carefully the control these variations for best results. Remember, don’t hang these in bright sunlight– diminished light will preserve the life of your print. As for me, I have a soft spot for both the Bumble and the Honey Bee, so this particular image holds a special place in my heart.

“Business Advice” for day: My bee-hives are busy this October morning. June 21, the longest day of the year, the optimal time of year for honey-bees around here has long passed. Honey-stocks necessary for the winter are all in, now. Last minute curing has to occur to finish up before frosts arrive. Honey gathered up for winter will allow honey bees to generate heat sufficient to survive until April 1– a very long time if you are a winter honey-bee! Aren’t there some crucial lessons here for human kind? Are we putting up stocks of our own sufficient to sustain us through the long winter into spring? Any smart business person must think in these terms to some critical extent. Let’s take a cue from our honey-bee friends. Time now is not to be wasted, but put to the best precious use we can muster.

In early October my floral honey-bee garden is still blossoming, do you believe it? Bees are all over the newest blossoms, though many have gone by. I intend to follow the bees, and to pay attention today to the flowers that beckon me with their fresh but late blossoms.

Fall Wall ArtPreamble Poster

Have you read this document, lately? Here is the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America. Isn’t it quite a document? “We the People…” “…in order to form a more perfect union,” “establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common Defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…” What is more relevant to these United States right now than these fundamental precepts? Think about it.

Here, the print is hung in a personal space, a bed room. The size is commanding, hanging above the bed such as it does. The colors are not your ordinary, bright red, white and blue, but are somewhat muted to create a more reserved appearance, more dignified. Do you hang such prints in your home, condo or apartment? Why or why not?

Preamble to the US Constitution Poster

Notice, this graphic print on a historical/political topic is adaptable to a variety of common wall settings–below, a business context. Furthermore, you will see this print customizable, as noted. Other such prints can be found in my Americana Collection.

“Business Advice” for day: Days “blur” by. Isn’t it important to stop occasionally to take in what has happened, what is happening, what may happen, what we’d like to see happen, what we hope happens…and what we dream about? In the blur we call modern life, I think it important to make sure we accommodate even these small moments which we can then tie, if we are fortunate, to our Gratitude.

On the cusp of OCTOBER, no less, and the prospect of falling leaves already underway though to a modest extent, I extend a special thanks for your interest and support of my work. Let’s carry on!

Fall Wall Art “Jackman Fall Sunset

Summer break has worn off, quickly. Loss of sunlight, drops in temperatures, changes in landscape colors, behavior of honey-bees, crop seasons passing…all contribute to the massive sense that summer 21 is indeed, lost to memory, now. Wood is yet to be ordered, though we have some stacked from last season that has dried through the summer. The bridge season is upon, the bridge between summer and….winter. Here is one of my favorite photos, ever…one I managed to take while visiting a friend in Jackman, Maine, after a series of terrific storms blew through the region…followed by clearing air and brilliant sun, at day’s end. I was just lucky to be on the spot, and am glad to present the image, “Jackman Fall Sunset,” here.

Jackman Fall Sunset,” by George Delany

While visiting this truly beautiful, rustic landscape, we have a chance to walk about the property as often as we like– we drive the dirt roads, too, visiting some out-of-the-way, very remote campsites, some of them located on a particular island in a particular lake. Learning the history of some of the camps is always an interesting gig. Here is a photo of the same image in another setting, utilizing a different wall color to set off the image. Just a beautiful moment…is about all I can say, now.

“Business Advice” for day: We enter a period of serious preparation…for winter. What a great reminder of the business world. The halcyon days of summer labor and summer profit are gone. We have no idea what to anticipate, but we can be sure the Farmer’s Almanac may be telling us to prepare for a long, cold, snowy, wintery blast. This urging will move us in the direction of doing whatever we can do to get safely through to spring, will it not? Over here, my list is suddenly long. This website needs attention for the season ahead. Personal matters over lap. Taking care of my two beehives looms as important. Family relations to support and nurture. Technology to learn and master, always. At a time when national life seems particularly ill, personal life makes its own firm demands. Plan ahead.

Summer Wall Art,Star-Spangled Banner

We are back, after a summer reprieve, and pleased to be so. What a tumultuous time over just a few short weeks. In honor of the 20th Remembrance of the horrors of 9.11.01, I am representing this cornerstone image, the most popular Americana Collection poster of all, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” in memory of the slaughtered, the families, first-responders, health-care, military and all those who helped us survive and come together during that fateful period, still playing out in our lives and consciousness. It was this horrific event that led to the design of the original series of “Who We Are,” Americana Posters, and to what have followed, since that time.

In the bedroom, “Star-Spangled Banner,” designed by George Delany

Below, you see the same image as might be applied to a small-business office, or to any business office, for that matter. Small businesses have been especially hard-hit since the arrival of the WuHan Virus, so perhaps it is especially fitting to call upon an image that for so many will help bolster our resolve and faith to see this period of American history thru to a more rewarding time, for all.

“Business Advice” for day: I am reluctant to offer advice, these days. But the idea of holding fast to our national ideals thru thick and thin, against any and all who would attack our bedrock, is a compelling calling I intend to accept now and in the future. Call me any name in the book– it won’t make a shred of difference. Recall the adage from second grade? “Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me,” do they teach this, anymore? In this spirit, I am always happy to present the wall decor, the posters that comprise my Americana Collection.

Here in mid-September, with summer winding down, a special thanks for your interest and support of my work.

Summer Art PrintSailor Off Newport

One of my favorite small acrylic studies on masonite, from an original only 7″ x 5″…this one captures the expansive view across the ocean just off the Newport/Jamestown Rhode Island Coast. Sailor-Off-Newport expresses a wide-open summer day when the wind is up, the sails are out, the boats move vigorously across the water against a backdrop that includes both water and sky.

Sailor Off Newport,” a summer print by George Delany

Below you see the same image, “Sailor Off Newport,” against a darkly colored wall in a business environment. The colors in the work come off brilliantly against the deep gray wall and stark office setting. Note the warm Cherry wood frame and wide, 3″ matte, both of which add power to the presence of the printed image. You can customize your frame and matte in exactly this fashion right on my site– note the unusual array of materials; printing, plastic, aluminum, canvas, along with mattes, frame and installation hardware. If you take your time, get your order just right, your print will arrive very much “buttoned up,” and ready to hang.

“Business Advice” for day: Can it be that Labor Day is in sight, already? Yes it can. Amidst the frantic pace of modern life, and on this day with the horror of our defeat in Afghanistan, perhaps it is helpful to convey a bit of wisdom offered by a friend, just lately. He advised, “Keep your peace, George. Keep your peace.” I still think about this little jewel each day. In the hubbub of small victories and sometimes tremendous setbacks each of us is up against day by day, isn’t it a good idea whether in business or personal life to try to find…and then keep, one’s personal peace. I would spell that with a capital P, Peace.

Happy Mid-August, and thanks for your interest in my work.

Summer Art PrintMy Morning Glory

Why does it seem we wait so long for the gorgeous Morning Glory? We wait most of the summer for its glorious appearance….and when it shows up, we are not disappointed, are we? Here is just one sample. Here, I am lucky– there are violet, blue, white Morning Glories around and about. They signal…summer is well along. I take the cue. Which cues do you take?

My Morning Glory,” by George Delany

Below is another image of summer, of Corn, one of my very favorites– took me several years to complete. Honestly, I could go into the painting today and fiddle with it some more. The work has come so far from the moment when that first dab of oil paint was applied to a large, white, blank, canvas (60″ x 40″) original. The original is available, as are limited edition prints at 24″ x 18″, each one signed by the artist. Corn is among the forms on this earth I regard as sacred– and so here is my homage to it.

Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? Maybe right now, this summer, instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. These are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the year moves toward the fall season. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you.  In a post-pandemic period, what better way to celebrate than…with a summer art print…perhaps even a gift to a friend or relative.

“Business Advice” for day: As August settles in, crops arrive, corn is sweet and fresh, salads are the best, gardens are rich and that new Peach pie is unbeatable. Is there a side to your business life in which everything comes together? Everything you strive for…at some perhaps unplannable moment, comes into being? I hope so. The ocean is warm and inviting, the grass is green, freshly cut. Lettuce and tomatoes, with a little salt, pepper and mayonnaise, haven’t tasted this good in about a year. Yes, things have in a turbulent time, after days of rain, come together. August, so beautiful! That our business life should be so bountiful!

Happy August, and thanks for your interest in my work.

Summer Art Print, “Ocean Drive #3

Have you ever driven Ocean Drive, in Newport, Rhode Island? Always a treat…but when weather is moving…a special way to witness the earth, water and sky up-close, and personal. I love this stretch of ocean front. Here is a print for your August print collection based on a small study, acrylic on board, only 7″ x 5″ original, but among the moodiest of my Newport images. Isn’t this a particularly striking print?

In the bedroom, “Ocean Drive #3,” by George Delany

A cruise along Ocean Drive will reveal fishing boats, fishermen, picnickers out on rocks, loungers in summer chairs, kite-flyers, surfers…I have tried to offer a taste of it, the essential Ocean Drive experience in this offering. Below, see this image as it hangs in a sitting room. Perhaps like yours? Remember, please hang these prints in diminished light– never in direct sun or bright light. This will ensure a longer print life.

“Business Advice” for day: Yesterday….May; today, August, can it be? A good reminder as to how fast time flies. Time to take note. I am behind in many of those things I want to get done…this summer. Time to pay a bit more attention. Time to get a bit more efficient. Time to check my priorities. Time to tick-off those tasks still ahead of me. Then, I can sit down with one of those lovely summer mint drinks, put up my feet, and relax. Here’s to a happy and productive August, 2021.

Summer ArtOne Lone Lily

In a sea of summer green, one gorgeous, lone lily stands out. After all this rain, an apt image for late July. Here, the image hangs in a purported living room setting; against a plain, dark wall color, the brilliant greens set off the yellow flower in a most delightful fashion, don’t you think. I was fortunate to be on the spot…to simply click my iPhone and record. This print is one of a series on Lillies in my photo collections– a favorite summer subject, to be sure.

Photo print recommendation, late July, 2021, “One Lone Lily” by George Delany

Below, you see the same image in a bedroom setting, a similarly dark wall color sets forth the brilliance of both the greens and yellows…just above the bed, a romantic image, in my view. As you peruse any of these selections, please remember, do not hang your digital prints in direct sunlight or even bright light. A more diminished light will add years to the life of your print.

“Business Advice” for day: In the life of a business person, there are the ordinary events and concerns of every day moments, comparable to the sea of green in this photo. Then, there are the special concerns, the highlights of the entire business endeavor, the special wins, victories, successes, those rarest of moments to savor. These are akin to the brilliant yellow lily, seen here. In your business life, what stands out? What do you really relish? What do you find…most beautiful, or gratifying, or rewarding, or stimulating…about your business concerns?

Summer Art PrintLove These Lilies

Mid-summerLily Time! After all this rain, the grounds here are lush, the lilies, as you may imagine, bright with color, lots of flowers bursting daily….very exciting to watch as I take my daily tour of the property to see what is coming, what is going, how the honey-bees are doing. If you’re looking for a summer art print for home, studio, apartment, condo or getaway, why not a Lily Print?

Perfect in summer bed-room, “Love These Lilies,” by George Delany

Isn’t the color palette beautiful? Greens, yellows, browns, tones bordering on reds an blues, deep earth tones, bright green accents here and there? In this setting, you see “Love These Lilies,” works in a public space such as a dining room or restaurant…just as effectively as in a bedroom setting. Note on my site you can customize many of the qualities of the image that interests you…see below.

“Business Advice” for day: I’ll keep it short. Doesn’t summer strike you as just a beautiful time of year? Last year a drought, this time of July– this year abundant rain. No matter what comes along, Summer is a time of natural beauty, discovery and observation. Is there any parallel in the business world, in the experience of business? Many would say, Yes! And isn’t it the job of the business person to catch on to exactly what form this takes? Many would say…a successful business has in it the same qualities of beauty, discovery and observationdiscernment. I agree. Setting up a business life to deliver not just money but other aspects of life perhaps more important is a lofty goal. Post-pandemic, maybe this sort of lofty goal is just what we need.

Summer Art Executive VP HR Takes InfoDip

Don’t you just love the idea of HR as the subject of wall art? Gives me a chuckle just to think about it. Here is a summer art print, “Executive VP HR Takes InfoDip,” that is among my most pointed, humorous of works to date, IMHO. These are the people who go crazy collecting data on everyone. These are the people who run the “Performance Review” exercises, among the most disingenuous of creative endeavors I know anything about– and I can speak from experience if you wish. These are the people who enforce political correctness, the antithesis of a purposeful, creative life. These are the people who track “conformity” to corporate dogma, or lack of it. These are the people who want you to believe you are a resource for the company, an invaluable one, until you’re not. Here, the Executive Vice President of HR is venturing into the waves on a hot summer day, topless of all things, carrying her laptop so as to review or gather new data while swimming– a preposterous, 21st century scene that looks so believable, doesn’t it? She has my entire dossier right there on her laptop…in the waves! < grin > I’m not worried. She’ll check in with the attorneys before distributing the final performance review evaluations— sure, right? And then everyone will rest, assured justice and fairness have been done. We have a bit of a history, together. Amen.

Beach art, July 2021, data-gathering at beach, “Executive VP HR Takes Info Dip” by George Delany

Below, the same image, Executive VP HR Takes Info Dip,” hangs over a dining table in the corporate cafeteria so all can see the art during tonight’s meeting and cocktail hour. Pass the wine and crackers! An excellent occasion to celebrate an absurd commentary on data-gathering during a summer outing, one I had some fun in painting, I confess..

“Business Advice” for day: Mid-summer arrives in soggy fashion. Gardens have received so much water in the past week, time to drain under July sun! Honey-bees need a break, too. Pollen is soaked! A year ago, we were entering into a 8-10 week drought…this year, we’re deluged! What to do? Doesn’t the problem always seem to be the same? No matter what comes at us, we have to accept this, and then make something good out of it, effect some positive outcome…if humanly possible. While the skies pour buckets, this is an easy sentiment to express. But turning it into an effective action remains a challenge. So I am posting this blog in the spirit of patience while moving forward. I am trying to clean up some unfinished business EVEN WHILE I undertake another sketch in a new series, just now taking shape, never been done, before! I have no idea what I’ll get, but the promise-factor is high, and I am pursuing it. Exciting! This is one antidote for a soggy spell, a soggy day, and a soggy attitude…I can feel it getting better, already! What are you doing on these rainy days, post-pandemic?

Summer ArtAmerican Revival

I am hopeful this July 4 that the majority of American citizens are thankful for this country, its founding, its origins, its flaws, its conquests, its strengths, its complexities and ambiguities, and for the American spirit that in so many ways seems (despite endless attacks from within and without) strong, imaginative, determined and resilient. Isn’t this a miracle in and of itself? You can find more such images in my Americana Collection at George Delany Art dot com.

American Revival,” by George Delany

At the bottom of this poster are the words to the Star-Spangled Banner as seen, here. This poster is one of my least promoted, least appreciated and most thought-provoking in the entire Americana Poster collection— in my view. I like the combination of elements, the headline, the page of the flag (hung outside my house on the occasion of 9.11.01) and the verse to the Star-Spangled Banner. Note the seal and signature on this poster. Upon request, at no extra charge, I will provide these features to your poster acquisition. Don’t forget…please hang in subdued light, not bright or direct sunlight.

We celebrate our history, however imperfect, and choose to commit ourselves to living into the glorious ideals our Founding Fathers so magnificently laid out for succeeding generations. Let’s get about this business of healing this country and moving into the future. Happy July 4, 2021, to all.

“Business Advice,” for day: What do you cherish? In business as in life, there is an underlying reason to do what you do. In this context, what is it you hold most nearly and dearly? Perhaps a good question to ponder over July 4, 2021. Many argue our country is under attack, not just by external enemies but internal. Our borders, budgets, Founding Documents, Founding Fathers, system of justice, education, the sanctity of family, the right to define and own property, gender, role of Government…what isn’t under attack, some may ask. This July 4, let us consider what has come down to us from our Forefathers and Mothers that has made our lives, our government, civilization possible. What is it we might elevate in our national consciousness, we might renew, to which we may recommit so that our children and grandchildren may grow up to inherit that for which so much has been sacrificed by so relatively few. I’m stewing on it, myself. Happy July 4, 2021.

Wishing you an inspired, joyful July 4, 2021.

Summer Art Print Honeysuckle Wall

High Season around here! So, in the spirit of the moment and season, here is a beautiful print idea, “Honeysuckle Wall,” featuring a plant I discovered as a young boy…most especially, how to pick the plant apart to suck the honey out of the interior. Still a topic of fascination. The charm and essence of the image lies on the interplay between the fine, white Honeysuckle plants and the wall of greenery, the leaves, that bind the image together in a rhythmical fashion.

Needless to say, Honey Bees are thriving, this is their high-season, also. I will be harvesting spring honey in a few days, and there seems to be plenty to harvest this year.

Honeysuckle Wall,” by George Delany

No question, I’d consider hanging this print, “Honeysuckle Wall,” over my bed! Somehow, it suggests the richness of life, the succor, the abundance, mystery, and beauty…in one simple image. Don’t forget to use the amazing tool on my site that will help you step-by-step learn how to customize your print so that when it arrives it is just right, and ready to hang.

My “business advice,” for the day: In your business life experience, what activity is it that most captures the idea of fresh Honeysuckle? Some moment that stands out in its beauty and delicacy from all the rest? This is a challenging question, is it not. I have to say, will give this some thought. Whatever it proves to be, I can use a whole lot more of the Honeysuckle experience than has been present over the past 16 or so months of Pandemic living. First crack at it would be this– in a trying period of time in our Nation’s history, I have found those few moments with one friend or another when a topic or thought is thoroughly shared or appreciated to be most akin to the experience of fresh Honeysuckle. Is this too much of a stretch? I don’t think so. Let’s hear it for Honeysuckle…this Summer Solstice season!

Wishing you a warm, wonderful, Honeysuckle day.

Spring Art Print “New York

Painted about two years before the tragedy that was 9.11.01, this watercolor, “New York,” is still vibrant and powerful and among my favorites. Late afternoon light bathes the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center amidst a wistful sky of purple clouds wafting by , framing up the scene over large stencil letters reversed out of the Hudson River, spelling out the name of the work, “New York.” The image generated a series of such iconic city-skyline images (here is “LA“), most of which remain incomplete, but are “coming along.” This print is now available from the original water color work, am pleased to report.

New York,” featuring the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center painted by George Delany

Below you see the image hanging not in a living or sitting room, but in a bedroom. I remember well the painting of this image in watercolor on a large sheet of watercolor paper…when you introduce a pencil and a pencil mark to a blank sheet of paper, let me assure you, you have no idea what will transpire. In this case, the experience was uplifting, to say the least. You can see other such images in my Americana Collection.

My “business advice,” for the day: Summer is upon us…finally! What a 16-18 month period this has been. Isn’t it wonderful to smell hamburgers in the air, see people at the beach, chowder on the menu, evening parties underway, people just so seemingly excited about the day. I am happy to report honey-bees in area are on a roll; we will have lots of spring honey, this year. “Carpe Diem,” is something of a cliche, but these days the expression has a certain power and resonance to it. I’m going with it! Carpe Diem, to you, too. On Flag Day, 2021, “Pluck the Day!”

Spring Art PrintsTwo Surfers Near Naples

When family members head to the beach, I pay attention. Such was the case, yesterday. So I am prompted to offer this print in honor of the change of season, currently well under way in 90 degree heat! “Two Surfers Near Naples,” is presented based on a small acrylic study on tempered masonite. This is one of series completed back in this time frame, and remains one of my favorites…of the beach. One woman purchased this print to give to her best friend on the occasion of her marriage. Nice.

“Two Surfers Near Naples,” by George Delany

By comparison, you see below the same image in the context of “bedroom art.” I find this association comforting, a nice cue to a night full of action-packed dreams? Remember, don’t hang these high-quality digital prints in bright light, particularly, direct sun. Diminished light will add years to your print.

Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? Maybe right now, this Spring, instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. These are all done using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit this site  often, as the year unfolds. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you. I will make every effort to complete your order in a timely manner, despite lingering COVID-related production concerns. In a post-pandemic period, what better way to celebrate than…with a summer art print…perhaps even a gift to a friend or relative. 

Two unusual and decidedly helpful features on my art site: 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.

My “business advice,” for the day: We have been thru a long slog this past year. Just the warm weather, the sun, the garden, birds and bees, and now the ocean opening up… is a daily pleasure. What do we do to find such pleasures in our work life? Our professional life? Professionals say, “American people no longer wish to work, we’d rather get paid off by our own government…than work,” words to this effect. I don’t necessarily agree. There are those who work hard and passionately , diligently, with a similar exuberance for daily business life as for the change in season from Spring to Summer. Don’t agree? Ok, then! We hold different views. I would urge you to find in your work…such a similar exuberance if it seems to be missing in your “work-life-balance.”

Wishing you a warm, wonderful spring day.

Spring ArtBattle Hymn of the Republic

Memorial Day 2021: We take a day to remember, reflect, honor and offer gratitude to those who have died for our Freedoms. And after a pandemic, it is turning out to be a powerful National Holiday. We seem eager to express our sentiments about things fundamental to our Democratic Republic, and particularly in the direction of our “True Heroes,” those who have given their lives for our Freedoms.

Here is another powerful Memorial Day statement, the Battle Hymn of the Republic, from the same Americana Collection.

My “business advice,” for the day: Isn’t it gratifying to see Americans from every walk of life coming together in these troubled times to offer thanks, prayers of gratitude to those brave soldiers who have fought and died so that we may live our our Five Freedoms? Remember, today at 3:00, “Taps Across America,” for anyone interested in this powerful, creative experience (https://www.tapsacrossamerica.org/)

Wishing you a peaceful, contented day of reflection, Memorial Day 2021.

Spring Wall DecorGod Bless America

As Memorial Day approaches, what comes to mind? In my mind, this year may mark a more conscious return to public ritual than occurred or was even possible, last year. Many of us seem to feel a depth of gratitude these days commensurate with the country and society reopening after the effects of Covid have begun to wane. This is my attitude, I confess.

God Bless America,” from my Americana Poster Collection

Here is a look at the God Bless America print, as designed in the aftermath of 9.11.01, when I created my “Who We Are” collection of verse and imagery to help bring us together as Americans. Don’t have a print to help celebrate Memorial Day, this year? Here is a possible choice. Remember, you can customize your selected print by a) size b) paper stock and finish c) materials d) matte e) frame and f) installation technique, all on my site as you check out. Very neat capabilities (if I don’t say so, myself!)

Materials include paper stock, canvas, canvas wraps, acrylic, Aluminum, and a variety of applications of each. So your work, with some careful selections on your part, will arrive in spit-condition, ready to hang.

Do you have a special Memorial Day print?

For owners of businesses large or small, and for those who run and manage non-profit organizations, if you would like to make available to staff and employees, even customers, any print in my Americana Collection, I will gladly add your company logo at a discreet size in the lower right hand corner and have these posters shipped to your organization.

My “business advice,” for the week: Memorial Day after the Pandemic– as the Country opens up, seems like we have a lot of catching up to do. One way we can catch up is to remember who it is that has died for our Founding Freedoms— many in question these days, under attack, disparaged, ridiculed in favor of what? Nothing. I will make an effort to do some catching up in the week leading up to Memorial Day, 2021. We know who it is that has fought and died for our Freedoms since our Founding.

Spring Art PrintNewport Country Club

Newport is especially beautiful in Spring, and then Summer, when oceans warm, beaches fill up, and golf-links are challenging and picturesque, to say the least. Here is a view of the Newport Country Club, as I imagine it. In the foreground is a young golfer who, using his phone, attempts (using GPS features) to hone-in his approach shot to the green, just ahead. I have added some of my squares to mark the time and place in pixillation history, and as a device to call out in pixel form the color palette of the painting– still a device I am attracted to since we now live in a world where images don’t just appear, they are constructed for a time, then deconstructed, and are gone. “Newport Country Club,” is a favorite of mine.

Newport Country Club,” oil on canvas by George Delany

Below, you see the limited edition print– or, the original, as it might appear in a summer living room; light, open, airy, with the 18th hole off in the distance. Harkens back to the period when I’d drop off my younger son at the end of the lane, and he’d saunter up to the clubhouse in anticipation of caddying a round of golf, or two on a beautiful summer day– how gorgeous those times and places were. So, I have a personal stake in this view, this perspective and this scene at the Newport Country Club.

Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? An art print? A photo print? Maybe right now, here as this most beautiful month of May settles in – instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Or, how about a Honey-Bee print? Or, a golf print? Lift someone’s spirits! Giving art, to give prints can be a joyful experience…even in trying times… such as now. When I give a print, it is most assuredly a joyful experience! In these testy, tumultuous times, think about giving an art print this Spring Season

Prints are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the new year moves toward mid-beautiful-May. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you. As the Pandemic seems for the moment to have wound down (before the next variant arrives?) what better way to celebrate than…with a spring art print…a lighthouse print, perhaps, or a poster with a patriotic theme, or a Honey-Bee print, or golf print…not bad gift choices for a friend or relative!

Two unusual and decidedly helpful features on my art site: 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, an under-appreciated feature.

Yes, You Can Brand Your Posters: Memorial Day approaches! Order now and receive your USA poster print in time for the holiday. In my Americana Poster Gallery you may find visual selections that resonate with your Spring state-of-being. Please take a look. To the question, “Can you brand my posters?” the answer is yes. Yes, I can brand these posters for you – contact me with questions. In short, your logo can be added at a discrete size to the lower right corner of each poster. I will show you a proof prior to production. #brandednonprofits I will be in corporation to help organizations identify this program.

Exhibit Page, New! Thank you for your enthusiastic support of my new Exhibit page, designed to show off to best advantage how some of my original images appear when matted, framed and hung on the wall! This will be an expanding feature of my site.

“Business Advice” for day: For the first time, our grass is cut. Lots of hedge, brush and weeds have been trimmed, cut, raked and deposited into the compost heap. The compost heap is growing, a good sign, this time of year. Where do you think the seeds of new growth are to be found, nourished and cultivated? In the compost. Think about it. Waste as a function of nutrient for the present, and the future. This is almost too big a thought for my simple head, but I do grasp it, and do practice the idea. The other side of this is…that we don’t want to contaminate the compost. We don’t want plastics, junk, poisons of any kind in the compost pile. We don’t throw flowers or brush that have been sprayed with insecticide, fungicide, herbicide, into the compost pile. The compost pile is as natural and pure and uncontaminated as any square inch of land that makes up this property. Isn’t it true in growing a business, you don’t want to contaminate the process, the skills, the products or people necessary to see it prosper? You want to avoid rot, degradation, spoilage. So this week, I have the compost heap of life very much on my mind.

You may find my new NFT art of interest (“Non-fungible tokens”), seen here on Rarible. More to come, a new collection in development as this is written. Have fun building your print collection this year. Try a new print purchase…this Spring! This is all viewable on Linktr.ee. A special thanks for your interest and support of my effort.
