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.

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 late-summer, early-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.

“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.

“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.

In bedroom, “Honeysuckle Wall,” just right this Summer Solstice season.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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 Print,Honey Bee Art 3

On my website, you have the tools to imagine a print of your choosing customized to hang on your wall in “just so” condition, exactly as you might imagine it. Below is an example of a print of my honey bee series printed on Aluminum, itself a very exciting medium, but here you see the hanging mechanism on arrival! No fuss, no muss. Just hang the print. There is nothing more the buyer to do. The whole process is made as simple in this on-line, art-buying exercise, as I have ever seen it to be.

Your print arrives..ready to hang. A very clever system.

Below is the actual print of the acrylic painting, Honey Bee Art 3, as applied to Aluminum. This is a very exciting medium and one I find myself exploring, often. The original painting was done in acrylics on masonite at a scale of 5″ square. Here, you see the final Aluminum print made with a very high degree of fidelity, ready to install. There are other such images in this series you may wish to examine.

You can customize your selection as to paper stock, finish, materials, size, matte, frame and installation technique. As with a straight-forward business challenge, you get to imagine the whole process leading up to a solution—the moment when your print arrives…in perfect condition, ready to hang. Think it thru. Careful imagining and planning will pay off.

Spring Art PrintsSpring Narcissus

Spring art prints are exciting to consider. After a year of Pandemic living, a national election, economic roiling, overseas saber-rattling, and a long winter, Spring art prints offer a visual treat for anyone who cares to think about the topic, and then act. Here, I lowered my smart phone in front of spring flower…a week or two ago and snapped this picture of a lovely, brand new Narcissus staring right at me. This is how a print idea develops. Perhaps the random photo will have something to offer, perhaps not. Likely, I’ll delete it and move on. But in this case, I like the result and may turn this image into a print offering, soon. This is among my normal creative processes.

Narcissus,” the beginning of an idea

Here you are, in the world between a split-second decision to take a photo…and the development of a real print offering such as is seen below.

With all these digital images, remember they last longer in subdued light. Never hang in sunlight, or direct light for that matter. Though prints are made with high-quality materials, they are, nonetheless subject to breakdown in the presence of certain light frequencies. Preserve your prints!

Spring Narcissus Instagram 2” in business setting

Typically, Daffodils precede Narcissus, but as a general proposition, they come early in Spring a week or so, apart, here in southeast New England. Below, you in see full brilliance a Spring art print celebrating the brilliance of the Daffodil— on display in abundance, this year.

This is my “business advice,” for the week: As we rediscover what Spring means, each year, so it may be helpful to bring a smidge of this attitude to business life. Bring a hint of the Narcissus, the Daffodil, even the Crocus, and soon, the Rhododendron…to your business practice. The first to come up after a long winter, new brilliance, new life, new waverings in the breeze and dancing in the sun. In my “cube days,” I could have used a dose of this attitude, myself. Here are my Spring offerings at the onset of a new season.

Spring ArtBannister’s Wharf 1

Recently, I dug up some paintings from some time ago, on the Newport, Rhode Island waterfront. Here are two of them, the first being “Bannister’s Wharf 1” I recall clearly what led to this painting. One Sunday, we had driven to Newport in the early afternoon, and spent time wandering the charming waterfront, eating ice-cream cones and doing what tourists in Newport do, in summer. I took some photos in those several hours, from which these prints derive– since the photos served as the basis for the oil-paintings, themselves.

Bannister’s Wharf 1,” by George Delany

In this second image, I am stationed about 100 yards or less away from the position required to paint the image above. Again, the photo I took at that instant served as the basis for the painting which I completed at home in my kitchen. I call this “Bowen’s Wharf 2.” This is a rich little image I like, alot. Both originals are oils-on-masonite. The images here can be purchased as prints, printable on any number of paper grades which you can select. You can also select a matte, a size, a framing material and hanging device, so that when your print arrives in the mail it is ready to hang. No fuss, no muss.

This is my “business advice,” for the week: I have rediscovered this part of Newport, Rhode Island, this waterfront neighborhood umpteen times over the years. It is as if every trip to Newport is in essence, an exercise in self-discovery in that my perception of the town, the locality, its charm, history and people, is shifted and rejuvenated… sometimes a bit, and sometimes, a great deal. I like this quality of life. In business, this quality is necessary to see, to discern, to understand the lay of the land, and how to see it, how to negotiate it, successfully. This does not have to be an entirely “rational event.” Here, in these images, what prompts the rediscovery is not rationality, but in the way I experience what I see— no more complicated than this. How do you see? How do you grasp? How do you understand how to proceed in a thoroughly familiar landscape?

Spring Wall ArtFirst Amendment

What, beside the Scriptures, is more sacred than our Founding Documents? And among these, which is arguably the most important? The First Amendment, currently under attack in many spheres of American life. Academics are inclined to forever “unpack” the meaning of it. Corporate media is inclined to ignore it. The educational establishment, parts of it, wish to “transform” it into something it is not and was never designed to be. Leftists are inclined to disparage it if not trash. Given the condition of our schools for fifty years, most citizens may not be able to tell you the Five Freedoms embodied in it. The good news is…many Americans are waking up to our lax ways and taking steps, however small, to fix this situation so that we preserve our National American Legacy, intact.

The First Amendment” graphic design by George Delany

Below you see the same image in the context of a living room. Contemporary graphic design makes this poster adaptable to many sorts of interior spaces, two of which are located here. You can use features of my website to “imagine” this image on your own wall! Check it out. But don’t forget to hang this print in subdued light. Though it is made with top quality paper and pigments, direct sunlight will shorten its life. Thank you for your continued interest and support…most especially in a trying time in which the founding ideas of the nation are under assault. Keep the faith. We will prevail.

This is my “business advice,” for the week: Post Easter, we welcome Spring! Here she is, in all her glory. We prepare the ground to plant. We rake, clean up, remove the spoils of a tough, trying winter and the many effects of the Pandemic…to make way for new life. In this spirit, we perhaps also should undertake to review our Founding Documents, those inspirations which in some ways explain how we got here…and why. Here is my graphic contribution to this end. The First Amendment. Let us work together to guard and protect these Freedoms from rot, stench, decay, compromise, betrayal, ignorance; whatever the force that would diminish them, reduce or eliminate them. In the spirit of new life in Spring, the mother Robin, the Queen Bee, the Baby Chick, let us reconsider and recommit to our Freedom…s!

Spring Wall Decor The Story

There are those who say, “Lose your myths, lose your society.” I believe there is truth in this sentiment. Easter gives us a chance…on behalf of our children and grandchildren… to recommit to our myths, our stories, our binding connections, those upon which society with all its flaws and all its successes, has depended since our founding. Easter gives us an opportunity not just personally, but societally, to step back and at the same time, into our most cherished beliefs, and to recommit to revitalizing them, rebuilding, reconstituting, re-energizing and perhaps even here in the 21st century, reimagining the very forms in which they must come to be in order to succeed. I don’t believe the creative experience our Founding Fathers knew as it unfolded in their time was appreciably different from that which we face in our time. They attempted to forge history, I mean, the lives they knew, in a different manner, toward a different ideal, and were in many cases willing to lay down their lives to push the whole enormously perilous undertaking along. Below is a sketch I have done, pencil, black-and-white ink, I call “The Story.” This Easter week prints are available.

This is my “business advice,” for the week: At Easter, we have a chance yet again to discover our own rebirth. In nature, this is what is happening, right now. Birds and bees…not to mention chickens, sheep, so many animals…are frenetic with new life. We get another opportunity to reflect, reconsider, recommit to the story, the mythology at the center of our society. We can go with those who insist society is no good and who have precious little to offer as a new foundation save recycled, trash from prior centuries– and the oh-so-fashionable, Politically Correct, not to overlook the ever-pernicious Cancel-culture…or we can live into anew those ideals that come down through Divinity to help us live our lives with at little woe and as much love as possible. I will make every effort to live into these ideals, anew–and after the year we have just experienced would wish the same for you and yours. Happy Easter, 2021 and may your lives be filled with new Hope, new Opportunity, and new Love.

Spring Wall Art,Christ with Feminists

What a provocative thought. Christ arrives in a portal at my church…feminists gather round to hear his message…what would he say? How would he say it? What would he reference? Who would he reference? What would be his main point? His summary? I find this a powerful topic…given the condition of tawdry, modern American society. Just saying.

One of the aspects of this series I like best is the creation of the sketch within the image of an interface that displays eMail…as if you were to receive an email with this message included. Then, suppose it was to include a video animation? In any event, here is my Lenten, Easter gift this year. If you order promptly, you may, if lucky, have your selection by Easter Sunday including a) print b) matte c) frame d) hanging device…all ready to go.

Suppose you received an eMail like this? From George Delany Art

This is my “business advice,” for the week: What story is at the center of your life? What story is at the center of your business life? How do you frame up your prized stories? How do you honor your story, or stories? How do you live into the ideals that make up your story? Are there ideals, at all? Here in Lent, 2021, as Easter moves toward us after Palm Sunday, this week, the story at the center of western civilization invites our consideration, our heartfelt examination, our attempt at an understanding, our participation, our educating our children, our embodying the ideal in the affairs of ordinary life…this is the incomprehensible story, the vexing story, the ineluctable story that frames up the last 2000+ years of the civilization we call our own. In this presentation, my invitation comes in the form of a simple black-and-white sketch illustrating the idea of the Christian ideal manifested in lowly eMail. In our troubled times, may the spirit of this season find you healthy and well.

Winter ArtPell Bridge in Winter

Wouldn’t you know…here we are on the cusp of Spring, when two orders come thru, both for prints of a Winter theme. OK! Here is one, “Pell Bridge in Winter,” one of my favorite winter scenes. In production, right now, going out to buyers, shortly with a late winter, “Thank you!

Pell Bridge in Winter,” print from an acrylic original by George Delany

Here is the same scene, “Pell Bridge in Winter,” in the context of a small business office. Adaptable, as you can see on this website! The original painting was done in acrylic on masonite, at a small scale of 7″ x 5.” To produce a high-quality print at a scale of 200% is a trick! These prints are high-quality, tonal and color qualities are excellent– do remember to hang in subdued light, not bright sunlight. Your print will last longer, can assure you.

Your office? “Pell Bridge in Winter,” by George Delany

Here is a lo-rez image of the print…to give you a sense of the winter quality and textures that make up the image.

These are all done using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit this site  here often in the New Year 2021. 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 COVID-related production “issues.” 

Check out two unusual 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.

This is my “business advice,” for the week: Often, the unconventional is where the surprise lies. In this image, “Pell Bridge in Winter,” there is an example– it lies in the simple understanding that the Pell Bridge if painted at all will likely show up in summer scenes, not winter. Spring, Fall, too. But not winter. And yet, in this image, there is a certain surprise in seeing an expression of the bridge during the dead of winter when everything is slow, life is on hold, the world seems suspended, frozen until Spring arrives. And yet, within this picture there is life and vitality…in the sky, in the knife strokes that describe the icy Bay, in the swirling weather that envelops the bridge itself. It is all an unconventional surprise. Business holds this promise, too, does it not? Sure, go ahead and do the usual, the expected, the normal, the repeat…then do it again, tomorrow… But if you dare imagine this activity as something new, what shape would it take? Perhaps there are some new successes, even joys to be gleaned and realized from an unconventional look at the normal.

Winter PrintsSnug Harbor Farm Sculpture

Here we are, winter wanes, spring on cusp, a spare season that is full of cold, wind and precipitation of one kind or another. This image, “Snug Harbor Farm Sculpture,” seems right for the moment. Are you shopping late winter wall decor?

The print is available only because we visited the captivating Snug Harbor Farm…and walked the premises where I spied this little scene. Note the grays, the tones, the background, the spare tone of the entire photo. Light and form carry the day. Very modest color is natural, I have NOT added any…a hint of Spring right here in the black-and-white world–I find appealing, if I don’t say so myself.

Then, imagine this same image in a different setting, perhaps a business environment. Behind your desk, in a conference room, or an entryway. In its simplicity, this makes a fine art gift. Remember, do not hang in bright daylight or direct sunlight. These high-quality digital prints will last longer if you hang in subdued light.

This is my “business advice,” for the week: Much of our lives, business and otherwise, is spent in the spirit of new life as we discover it in Spring…is this not so? In Advent, we wait with Hope for the arrival of Christ. At Easter, we wait with Hope for the incomprehensible resurrection of Christ. In Spring, we wait as the cold, barren winter recedes, the grass warms, buds begin to appear, honey-bees begin to dance, birds awaken early and begin their feverish planning, and life begins anew. I find myself ineluctably drawn to the mysteries that come with Spring. After this past year, may you, may we all, find this Spring full of joy and possibility.

Winter Wall Art,Search…Hope, Original

Hope: Is a painting of an anonymous person working at a computer screen worth doing, or promoting? How could this be so? I believe the answer is “Yes.” Never in human history has the concept of work, identity, play, leisure, community, faith, humor, culture…any of what we call Culture, been reduced to one primary activity…plunking at keys, using a mouse and gazing at a screen. I find it astonishing, really. More than this, I think there will be some kind of reckoning at some point…when all we ought to have done, might have done, should have done, would better have done…will call out to us as if to say…”Where were you?”

“Search…Hope, Original,” acrylic on canvas, George Delany

This painting is one of a series of three from my “Faith, Hope, and Charity,” trio. This being “Hope,” leaves the other two, “Faith” and “Charity“– I call Charity… Love. So this is part of the Faith, Hope and Love series. Each painting is 48″ x 36,” acrylic on canvas, ready to hang. Limited edition prints are available, too.

This is my “business advice,” for the week: “Faith, Hope, and Charity, that’s the way to live successfully…how do I know? The Bible tells me so.” This is a song, a jingle from my youth. This was a popular song! It resonated in this society. I remember it fondly. Now, in this day and age, the whole idea is largely mocked and ridiculed, most especially by the cognoscenti, the usual suspects. But I tell you, the more it is mocked, the more worthy the whole idea becomes, the more vital, the more appealing and the more relevant. Disagree– I don’t mind. But in this world, in this country, in this country, right now, few things make any real sense from day-to-day. This is one central idea…and ideal, really, that does. Faith, Hope, Charity.

Winter Wall ArtOcean Drive Original

One of my favorite stretches of highway anywhere…is that spot along Ocean Drive in Newport, Rhode Island, where you at one point round a curve and find yourself facing for as far as the eye can see, the sea on one hand and the monumental ocean sky blanketing the whole vista. Here is the scene I have tried to capture in “Ocean Drive, Newport RI Original.”

In the conference room “Ocean Drive Original” a Newport, Rhode Island scene

Painted from a photo I snapped, I admit to having driven this route dozens if not hundreds of times over many years. The original painting measures 60″ x 40″. It is available as a limited edition print, also. Note, each limited edition print comes at a fixed size, 24″ x 18.” I will sign the print for you if you should wish.

This is my “business advice,” for the week: Sometimes…you’ve seen something a dozen times, a hundred times, when all of a sudden, for reasons that may or may not be apparent, you see something new in the familiar for the first time. This is in my experience —often an exhilarating one. Is it not so in business, also? Most of my original paintings fall into this realm, now that I think about it a bit. Something new…born from the all-too-familiar. We could use a dose of this, now, don’t you think?

Winter Wall Art,Slush Foot in Winter

How do you mark the passage of winter? In a pandemic? This year, I note the passage of winter on frequent walks, late in the day. The sun sets at a later time, Robins show up on frozen ground to eek out a dinner, somehow. Small birds seem to become more frenetic at the feeders as mating season approaches. I wonder about my beehives– are they healthy? Do they have enough food? Is the Queen laying her eggs, yet? In winters past, perhaps we visit family in New York City or take some other kind of winter excursion– but not this year. Below is a shot of my slush foot on one of my winter afternoon walks…when I begin to realize Spring is only a month off.

Small business office setting, “Slush Foot in Winter,” by George Delany

Below is the pixilated version of the same image– one I find interesting in its elaboration of tones; white, black and gray. If you have an interest in this print, please contact me. I will get it produced for you…since it is not posted on my art website. I have a fascination for pixelated images– not everyone does. But here is a good example of why I like the exercise of creating pixelated images. Just…a beautiful study.

This is my “business advice,” for the week: See the season just ahead. Yes, we are in the here-and-now, trying to make the most of each day. Yes, we prioritize our tasks, trying to get every thing done as efficiently as possible. But seeing the season ahead, perhaps the year ahead, perhaps five years ahead, is a helpful exercise, too. This exercise allows me to imagine where it is I want to go; an ‘outcome,’ if you will. This exercise helps me factor in considerations that would otherwise be omitted, dismissed or escape my consciousness altogether. I like a little time to imagine the Honey Bees feverishly at work gathering spring nectar, pollen, birthing their young bees. This helps me orient my own efforts toward the hives and what they might require of me so that a productive, healthy season becomes possible. Whether in business, in art or in life, a little forethought is in order.

Winter Wall Decor,Momma Hen in Waiting

As Valentine’s Day approaches, we begin to receive our annual seed catalogs, the days lengthen, Spring seems to be more consciously in mind…so what may be better than an image to hang that is all about the passing of Winter and the arrival of Spring? Here is “Momma Hen in Waiting,” first painted in acrylic on an ordinary wooden shingle from which these prints are made available. This high-quality, digital print uses a white, 3″ matte and a flat Cherry wood frame to make it stand out on the wall.

Momma Hen in Waiting,” winter art print 2021 from George Delany Art

This series of chicks is based on our own flock, one we maintained for years in the basement of our barn. Roosters, Hens, Chicks, we had a wide variety including Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rock, Silver Laced Wyondottes, Buff Orpingtons and Cochins and “exotic species” we purchased via USPS from a Kansas farm, Murray McMurray. Our local post man would call at 7:30 am to announce, “Your Chickens are here!” We ordered about 25 birds at the time. Another joyful day…underway.

This is my “business advice,” for the week: To that special someone in your life…with Valentine’s Day just around the corner…time to devote some thought. In a time of pandemic when so many people are cooped up, constrained by uncommon health concerns of one kind or another– on this day, Valentine’s Day, may each of us find time to pay attention to what is most important in our lives, or more importantly, who. How do we honor this person? We have the rest of the year to honor business colleague and friends for their accomplishments, achievements and exploits. But on Valentine’s Day, the focus changes to the one who is most special, the one who may be the greatest source of inspiration and strength. We get to pay attention, to acknowledge, to be thankful! Happy Valentine’s Day 2021.

Winter Wall Decor,The Hot Club

This series of pencil sketches on paper came about in the late 80s as I recall. Each is an attempt by the artist, that would be me, to pay tribute to some aspect of life in the physical plane….in Providence, Rhode Island, I thought noteworthy. This is one from that series of drawings. Another aspect of this image’s creation lies in the memory now that this building, once an old industrial site on the waterfront in Upper Narragansett Bay, had lain derelict for years before a close friend decided to take this on…and so he and his buddies resurrected the building and turned it into what became, arguably, the “coolest bar,” in Providence at the time. What a lot of fun it was.

Hot Club,” prints from original pencil sketch by George Delany

Below is a scanned image of the original pencil sketch, done at 6″ square, on paper. At the time, the Pixel was making itself known in the creation of electronic images…and so I took it as a challenge to impart some quality of the pixel into the sketches of the time, hence the grid of grays in the background, my homage, to the pixel– one of many over the years.

This is my “business advice,” for the week: The Vision is important…but without follow-up, nothing happens. In this case, the Hot Club came into being only because of the vision…and follow-up by a guy completely committed to its success. He didn’t ‘talk about it.’ He didn’t ‘share his feelings.’ He didn’t ‘seek consensus.’ He didn’t rush impetuously into the undertaking. He put his dedicated team together…and moved into it, completely. He took his time, but did it zealously. And the whole undertaking was a smashing success.

Winter Wall Art,Snowy Lane

As in summer, the beauty in winter can be all around us…one has only to turn our attention to see it. Art is often concerned with enlarging our capacity to see and understand the world around us, is it not? I snapped this image, one I call, “Snowy Lane,” on a trip to see my neighbor after a winter storm. Low-and-behold, it is full of surprises. I hope you like it.

Snowy Lane,” by George Delany

Below is a second image, pixelated, from the same series. See how different they are, and how beguiling, though both are simple images of the plane of snow broken and illuminated to capture the terrain. Pixelated images I offer as a test– I love pixelated images just as studies of color, shape, form within a perimeter. Not everyone does. But if you are in the “I like pixelated images,” camp, perhaps you will appreciate this image. This image is not offered as wall decor, but provides a basis for comparison and consideration.

Below is a simple application of the winter-image to a room, an environment, in this case, a living room, perhaps.

This is my “business advice,” for the week: Once upon a time, my teacher would strut into class with a few samples of art prints under his arm, gather us together, hold up his first sample before us, and say, “See it.” We in many cases did not appreciate what he was talking about. We looked at it. We gazed at it. We blinked at it, then away, we wondered what he was talking about, but my sense was that we…or I, did not really grasp what he was getting at. In today’s selections, you have a chance to see snow differently. “See it,” he would have said. And here it is.

Winter Wall Decor: “Florida Beach Poster” one of series

One of the most distinguished of my Beach Poster Series, the Florida Beach Poster…just shipped out to a Florida resident, this week. Thank you! Tube, USPS. Yes, I signed the gentleman’s poster as I customarily do each one. A seal of authenticity is also imprinted on the poster in the lower right corner. Printed on 100 lb. Mohawk Bristol Cover, an excellent grade of paper stock, the colors are silk-screened, rich blue and green with pink complements in the details. Major beaches are identified by number and cross-referenced to a list beneath the State representation, itself.

Florida Beach Poster,” signed by artist George Delany

The posters in this series have a distinctive, unique general appearance, graphic style, call it what you will. But in each case, what truly distinguishes this work is the presence of AUTHENTIC BEACH SAND I gathered from each locality. My screen-printer worked with me very diligently to develop a means of adhering the sand to the poster, highlighting the beaches of the particular State…a lot of fun to puzzle out, I admit. Rhode Island was the original, the prototype for this whole series. It sold out at least two printings and regrettably, is no longer available.

Winter Wall Art,Cape Cod Beach Poster™”

The Cape Cod Beach Poster remains one of my favorites in this series, begun way back during the Rhode Island BiCentennial Celebration when I first fashioned the prototype, “Rhode Island Beach Poster” as part of the series of screen printed posters designed to honor the occasion. This Rhode Island Beach Poster sold out thru at least two printings and is no longer available. But I went on to create a whole family of related Beach Posters, each one utilizing beach sand of the State or locality adhered to the poster paper stock…to make my point– a very unusual piece of wall art. In the design of each poster, I visited a beach in that locality and dug up the sand, myself.

“Cape Code Beach Poster” by George Delany

Yes, the tan areas are actual Cape Cod beach sand, as is true in all Beach Poster designs. The size is about 24″ x 35″. Each poster ships in a tube, USPS. I will sign your poster for you. Check out the whole collection: Chesapeake Bay, Long Island, Florida, New Jersey and California…make up the entire series. Perhaps one day I’ll get around to creating the Arizona Beach Poster! Note, POSTER OFFER GOOD ONLY WHILE SUPPLY LASTS.

Winter Wall Decor: “Amazing Grace

In this trying time in the USA, here is my graphic sentiment on the moment. “Amazing Grace” in this period, on this sad day. It is wholly inadequate. But I will hang on to it with the same Hope as the writer of the Book of Hebrews 11: verse 1, who wrote, “Now faith is the sum of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Amazing Grace,” from my “Who We Are Collection.”

In the sitting room example, below, you can see that an image reminding us of the power of Amazing Grace lends itself to almost any setting, residential, non-profit or business.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– With all the tumult of the 1960s, something I never hoped to see again, I have never seen a moment quite like this. I am saddened at the moment in which our country finds itself. This cannot be. Let us reach, each in our own way, in this tumultuous time at the outset of 2021 for a higher expression of good faith, good will, civility and basic integrity toward our fellow Americans— with our great grandchildren in mind. Amen.

Winter Wall Art,Declaration of Independence

This is the last post on this blog…for 2020, a trying and tumultuous year for us all, wouldn’t you say? I could post a romantic image, an amusing image, a funny image, a politically charged image, an ironic image…but in the scheme of things, I am posting one of my poster designs I believe to be most important, given the times. See what you think. Here is the “Declaration of Independence,” one I believe carries a message that will come into sharp focus in the years just ahead. Why do I believe this? Because forces inside the country and out are lined up to obliterate much of what is here, that’s why. You can disagree, all right, no problem. But I believe the ideas embodied in this poster ought to be revived, taught anew and reinforced. Plenty of Americans have died for the ideals expressed here, and plenty are prepared to defend it again, no doubt.

Declaration of Independence,” from my Americana Collection

Here is an application to a small business office wall, a home business office wall, almost any business office wall. The poster itself uses high quality pigments and paper, and comes in a variety of sizes, paper finishes, print, matte and framing materials as you will note on my George Delany Art website. In my opinion, the poster works well in any residential setting also, bedroom, computer room, library, study, sitting room–here is an adaptable, contemporary design image.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– Time marches on. We adapt, we recover, we refocus, we reconsider, we recommit, we re-energize, we gather ourselves in for the haul, short and long. This New Year, 2021, looks like it will call upon all of us to do just this. Let us spend this critical time in preparation for what lies ahead and put our faith in the same Almighty to which our Founding Fathers made their own complete sacrifice. Happy New Year and best Covid-free wishes for a good one…to all.

Winter Wall Art,Bannister’s Wharf

Another print sold, Bannister’s Wharf, Newport, Rhode Island. Typically, I will either paint on site, “pleine-air,” OR, I will take photos and try to turn selected images into interesting paintings. This latter process is what happened, here. Digital technology allows me to make high-resolution scans and to produced quality prints for those who find them engaging, as I do.

In the case of Newport, Rhode Island, we have been visiting this town for more summers than I wish to confess to…but I will admit to ‘college years!’ I find paintings of the beaches, downtown areas, the harbor, and Ocean Drive to be endlessly captivating. And so, over the years, I have created a number of original paintings and now prints reflective of my love of Newport.

Below is the original scanned image from which the prints are made. These prints use high quality materials, pigments, papers and framing materials. Do not hang prints in direct or even bright sun-light. For longest durability, hang in subdued light.

Have you ever purchased a graphic print? Maybe this year, 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. The time to order prints for Christmas 2020 has passed. But visit this site again in the New Year 2021 and I will make every effort to complete your order in a timely manner, despite COVID-related production “issues.” As of this moment, I am still to receive one very important Christmas gift print to be delivered upon arrival, here! Not good.

Check out two unusual 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.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– Christianity is rooted in love, mercy, forgiveness. I find the essence of it all more critical to my own life now than ever before in my lifetime. So my personal ‘bias,’ if you wish to call it that, is that we commit ourselves, our community and our country to living out in these closing days of Advent the promise of the Christian experience.  Merry Christmas

Fall Wall Decor,Rum Runner

Newport, Rhode Island in late summer. Here we are walking Bannister’s Wharf, Bowen’s Wharf, hobnobbing among the shops and restaurants with other tourist folks. This was the scene when I stumbled on this famous Newport waterfront vessel, “Rum Runner.” That was it. I snapped a few photos which served as the basis for the oil-on-canvas painting. In turn, prints are provided from this original work.

Above, you can get a sense of this work installed in a bedroom setting. On my website, you’ll see a variety of other possibilities; sitting room, home office, conference room, restaurant…which will allow you to imagine how this work might appear in your particular setting. You can also use your phone and Augmented Reality to imagine this print on a particular wall you may have in mind. Very nifty application. This image remains one of my favorite scenes of Newport, and is among my favorite images painted of localities in and around the resort town.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– Let me keep it short, this week. The Holyday Season is upon us. What is your response? In a litigious, increasingly secular, still very materialistic society, what drives you to participate in this season of the year? I don’t want to know the answer– but I do like the question, most especially in such uncertain economic times amidst a global pandemic, in anticipation of a new administration all within a highly polarized society. What does the Holiday Season mean to you, this season? Merry Christmas.

Fall Wall Art,Big Boy 1

I like this post, already. Among our many beautiful chicks, hens and roosters over the years was one of my favorites, this Silver Laced Wyondotte. Big Boy 1, otherwise affectionately known as Roscoe the Magnificent. Roscoe rose up from a baby chick to take command of the whole chicken coop where he remained the force to be reckoned with…for several years until one of his cockerel sons knocked him off his perch and superseded him!

From series of acrylic studies painted on wooden shingles, this is “Big Boy 1

Roscoe the Magnificent survived rat attacks, raccoon attacks, Coyote attacks, Hawk attacks, skunk attacks…he was truly the Big Boy 1. In the world of chickens, life proceeds like it does in our world. If you don’t defend your coop, it will fall. I am so glad I included this bird in my short series of chickens, each one painted on an ordinary wooden shingle, from which these nifty prints are offered. Here, you see a bedroom art gift idea, Roscoe hangs triumphantly above the bed; bear in mind, you can print this image on a variety of materials through my website; canvas, paper, glossy, matte, plastic, wood, acrylic and metal. I like to experiment with digital imagery on a mix of materials. The results are often captivating.

Big Boy 1,” from my Shingle Art Series

Have you ever purchased a graphic print? Maybe this year, 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. Strong suggestion…ORDER NOW, and add ten days to your production turn-around time. You are not TOO LATE, but you are brushing up against the limits of possibility…before Christmas Day arrives. COVID and shopping pressures have complicated delivery times, so the smart art print holiday shopper will act sooner rather than later.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– Here we are in the Christian tradition…in the Season of Advent…the season of waiting; waiting on the arrival of the Son of God, a major interruption in the unfolding of the human experience in time and space. To this, I can add what we all know– yes, we are waiting, all right. In this odd and trying year, we are waiting for a lot of things. So many people in our country are hurting beyond what most of us may understand or grasp; for food, clothing, a roof overhead, schools to open up, parents to return to work, small business owners to continue their commitments to self-employment as the only means of raising a family, paying bills, creating a viable and prosperous future– this is, in part, what we are waiting for. Some essential questions are painfully in need of an answer. Are our leaders as smart as we think they are? For some decades now, has our political class defended and protected this nation? Our leaders and their often un-elected bureaucrats tell us almost daily what we can do, what our children can do, what we can’t do…our national mental health is taxed, wounded, ailing, and in jeopardy of implosion…our Founding Fathers must cringe, in outrage. The Covid shut-down, the lack of leadership, mis-guided leadership while people atrophy and die in all too many cases is for me, appalling. Yes, we are waiting, this year. Advent teaches us..there will be a resolution one day, and I hope one day, soon. Perhaps a catharsis. A redemption. A moving ahead, one way or the other. Let us commit to finding our way…on behalf of one another.

Fall Wall Decor,Preamble” to US Constitution

I suppose it is still a cliche to mention, “We the People.” Old hat, elementary school stuff. Many more “issues” have bubbled up to occupy our daily consciousness, right? I don’t agree. I don’t think at this moment in history We the People is cliche at all. In fact, the very idea may be more important now than at any time since our founding. Our undergirding ideas are under attack, many believe. I am one of them. So I am willing to stew at great length at what the notion of forming “a more perfect Union” is to mean.

“Preamble” to US Constitution, by George Delany

Above you can see the hypothetical example of how this graphic print might appear on the wall of a small or home business. Patriotic colors, but muted, neither a loud blue or red, but muted. This poster is but one from my Americana Poster Collection first undertaken after the attack of 9.11.01, years ago. I am so glad to have taken this journey in the interceding years.

“Preamble” graphic design from George Delany Art

Have you ever purchased a graphic print? Maybe this year, instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of print, an art print. These are all done using high-quality materials. Strong suggestion…ORDER NOW, and add ten days to your production turn-around time.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– In a sense, the Preamble to the US Constitution describes the role of government in its most elemental terms. This document has guided and survived since our founding. The inherent idea of building a more perfect union was designed in my view to move this early society away from slavery and out into the clear light of day, the sun, over time. In this sense, it has been successful. The Preamble stands as a monument not to our sins of commission or omission but to the extent to which we have over 200 plus years made great progress. No, I don’t hang my hat on the progress. After this past summer, we all know that living into our potential, into our ideal, has a gravity about it that we have not witnessed in some decades. It is time to pay attention, and to keep the progress going. Personally, I am not a fan of “identity politics,” but of creating as much opportunity for all citizens…out of our prosperity…as we can muster; brains, talents, skills, traits, the capacity to contribute. Rewarding people, punishing people, based on skin color is a caustic, cancerous idea. Let us continue our efforts, one person at a time, one by one, two by two, to “secure the benefits of Liberty” for all our citizens. Let us not relent. The hour has an urgency built into it. Perhaps as this year ends, we commit to meeting this Urgency in the New Year.

Fall Wall Art,Working Stiff #4

Sound file promo: Check this out, a first

Many of us live day-to-day in this mode, don’t we? Our children know how to do it. Even seniors are learning at likely a continuing, rapid clip. We all learn how to do this, what you see here. Is it good? Is it ‘real living?” Is it…living at all? If not, what is it? My son says, “Dad, it’s moving electrons, that’s ALL it is.” He has a point.

You can find recent news of George Delany Art at this link, I hope. We have had a busy fall, and thank those who have supported my work and website.

Have your holiday gift art all wrapped up this year? “Working Stiff #4” from George Delany Art

This image is one from a short series I did some years ago, from an acrylic study on masonite board, 5″ square as I recall. The new “working stiffs” of the 21st century, often now referred to as “keyboard warriors,” a name that amuses me, I confess.

The more time goes by, the better I like this set of images. The version of a nude woman sitting here in this chair, regrettably, sold some years ago. I wish I still had it. All prints are high-quality, good materials, excellent overall quality. Do NOT hang in sunlight, or bright light. Preservation would urge muted light.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– What a year we are wrapping up. Perhaps not ironically, the subject of Thanksgiving is especially resonant, this year. Economic woes, international woes, job woes, political woes, all sorts of woes. So it would seem normal and good that we really look carefully at what we love and value. I am fortunate to be lucky enough to do this. We know not everyone is so fortunate. Our notion of citizenry, of common ground, of common purpose, of perhaps even the Two Great Commandments, may be more poignant in its resonance this year, isn’t it so? And then, there is our own history. Do you know the story of the Mayflower? Do you know the story of the Mayflower Compact? We learned about this holiday long ago…in first and second grade. The messages are resonant today more so than at any time in recent memory…except perhaps for the months and years after the hideous tragedy of 9.11.01. In trying times, may we call into clear focus who and what we cherish and value, this Thanksgiving.

Fall Wall Art,First Amendment

Once upon a time, in a land faraway, I awoke one morning to read the morning headlines in ultra-bold, two-inch type, “Civil Liberties Suspended.” The lesson was not lost on me.

Do you know your First Amendment? Do you know the Five Freedoms? Are your Five Freedoms safe, secure, free from being squashed, dampened, rewritten, edited or trashed– by anyone or anything? What is it that tells you– in this new society — ruled more and more by forces we don’t understand all that well…such as our new tech oligarchy, which (if you heard the Senate testimony, yesterday, we are at last beginning to understand) your Freedoms are actually safe, secure and protected? What happens if you wake up one day and your fundamental freedoms are….well, just gone, as mine were on that morning? Deleted? Do you know for sure that you, your family, your groups, your colleagues, are NOT in the algorithm included in their new, still-developing “Network Analysis?” No, you do not. I do not, we do not.

Your Five Freedoms, known as First Amendment, do you know them?

I think of graphic design as art, an art form. Here is an example. Typography, color, form to express an idea, simply presented. This is one of a series from my Americana Collection, first undertaken after the grotesquely tragic events of 9.11.01. I am glad to have undertaken this series. The first series in this collection, “Who We Are,” characterized by seven such graphic works, was given a Gold citation by Graphis Poster Annual, and later accepted in full to the permanent collection of the Library of Congress. When you think about gifts this year, the unusual, the meaningful, perhaps something less commercial than is the norm, here you are.

Image of Poster, “First Amendment” from George Delany Art

This poster, and others in my collection, suggest there is plenty of work to do…by every American Citizen over the days, months, years just ahead. Starting right now. If you like the idea that our tech-leaders now are coming to control your access to information, thought, concepts, language, all at large scale, not just individual, but societal maybe its time to consider some new thought, new consideration. Before dismissing what I write, let’s continue to watch, listen, act where we can. In these very trying times, let’s see in the months and years ahead our creative energies find their way in the direction of protecting and building “a more perfect union“.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– Let’s give our pet notions such as our comforts…some thought. We talk about the importance of our “comfort zones,” as though comfort was written into the Declaration of Independence. It was not. Our own lives, and the lives of our children and grandchildren may, as was true for our Forefathers, be linked to the degree to which we are committed to what which we find most uncomfortable in the name and spirit of doing the best we can, what is right. Thru difference of opinion, difference in perspective, difference in philosophy…that we come together in the spirit of our common and heritage to preserve and build upon our common ideals. Our comfort zones may not be the friends we have long thought so correct as to be a conventional wisdom. In my world, if I’m comfortable, something is not quite right. Comfort is rarely my conscious choice. But then, I’m Irish– at least in large part. < lol > Comfort suggests my life is not being well spent. Time to get uncomfortable and work to preserve our Five Freedoms.

Fall Wall Decor, “Veterans Day Wall Art”

Veterans’ Day offers us a chance to stop, to breathe, to step back, to grasp, to appreciate what Veterans have done and on this day still do– defend our country, our people and our Five Freedoms.

Battle Hymn of the Republic” Wall Decor at Veterans’ Day 2020

Many of my posters in this Americana Poster series were originally initiated after the attacks of 9.11.01. That was an attack on our country…from without. What we face now is something very different. We are patient. We will stop, look, examine, consider, reflect, piece together, and come to our conclusions. Then, we will make every effort to live into the idealism of our Founding Fathers as they would have us do. Stand by.

American Revival,” from Americana Poster Series, Veterans’ Day 2020

Fall Wall Decor,First Amendment

These are serious times. Ponderous, vexing, issues, often outrageous loom everywhere it would seem. My own experience these days is to understand more fully what our foremothers and fathers must have endured in coming to decide that the time had come to separate from Mother England. What a momentous realization this must have entailed. This week I celebrate a priceless fruit of that enormous risk, that undertaking, that creative, probably horrifying moment in many respects; the creation among many others of our First Amendment.

First Amendment,” Living Room Wall Art Selection from George Delany Art

Below is another application, this time in a small or home-business setting, great art selection in a business environment. Prints use high quality materials. Do not hang in sunlight, diminished light is preferred. All these posters are part of my Americana Poster Collection developed over some years.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– In a daunting week, post-election, it is good most of us are stepping back, we hope and pray our system will not only work, but endure. Sometimes in life, in business, it helps just to take a deep breath, to step back, to better understand what is unfolding before we go rushing headlong into some behavior that may not be useful or helpful. A second point to make is that we can size up the beauty and profundity of the work of our Founding Fathers in the creation of our Five Freedoms; press, religion, expression, assembly and petition. They are all here in this graphic work.

Fall Wall Decor, “Memories of the Summer of Love

From a series of studies, each 12″ square, oil-on-canvas, that comprise my “Big Wokey– Bad-Ass Leftist Mob Art,” this selection is titled, “Xenophobes!” one of the many epithets we’ve heard hurled about so many times in recent years.

This is my “business advice,” for the week– In tumultuous, often dis-orienting times, I am not one to easily offer any sort of advice on much of anything. But a couple of things come to mind: a) Keep life as simple as you can b) Get outside every day, into a park or green space or maybe the beach c) Control your own momentary decision making in favor of what is good and moves you ahead, no matter how incrementally small this may appear to be d) Count your blessings many times during the day. With our elections a week away, am wishing you many peaceful, Covid-free moments in the process of your own life, unfolding– and our collective experience as American citizens.

Fall Wall Decor, “One Beautiful Sunflower

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fall Wall DecorStatue in Woods

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

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

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

Bedroom setting, see Photos at George Delany Art

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

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

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

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

This design is one of a series of seven I created in response to the events of 9.11.01. The purpose of it all is to call attention to our ideals, our history, our promise…as a means of navigating these troubling times. Still pertinent, is it not?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Summer Art, “American Revival” Graphic Print

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

American Revival,” posted September 11, 2020

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

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

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

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

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

Summer Wall Print,Horseneck Beach #1

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

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

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

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

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

Summer Art Prints:Vista from Chi-Cheemaun Ferry

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As August winds down, the air has changed, animals notice it– so do I! Birds for some reason have disappeared, Catbirds, Robins, Finches, Wrens, two that only recently moved into one of our new birdhouses, have taken mysterious leave. What is this, wild cats moving thru the property? Why? I don’t know.  Maybe they will return, soon. But, I invite you here in mid-August, amidst the pandemic, economic travail, national politics, geopolitical tensions and national forbearance to reflect, to buy an art print…(have you ever purchased an art print?), to investigate GeorgeDelanyArt try two neat features on my site you may enjoy:

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

Check out the several categories of original art and prints on my site; Instagram pix, photos, paintings, illustrations, limited editions, original painted works and Americana posters.

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