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.

“Pixelated Snow” by George Delany

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.

May they come again this year– I will hold this out as a ‘personal goal!’

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.
