Team EBSQ-Etsy Featured Friday: Joseph J. Callahan

This weeks featured friday store is run by Joseph J. Callahan.

Joseph’s art is very earthy and raw. He plays with emotions across his canvases through paint, textures and colors, creating one of a kind acrylic abstracts. His store offers original paintings in large, small, and art card format. Joseph’s art would make a very bold addition to any art collection.

Simon Sez… Treats!

This week’s Simon is EBSQ artist Alma Lee. The theme she has chosen for her turn as Simon is “treats”. She explained the reason for her choice this way: “Recently I was “strongly” encouraged to paint a couple of cupcakes for my nieces newly decorated room. It has been done in cupcakes. I can’t even grasp the concept of why you would want food on the the wall of a young girls room but none the less, it got me to thinking. So Simon says treats of any kind… Rules: Length: now-12/13/09 , limit 5.
Lets have em!  Here is Libby’s Cupcake to get things started.

Simon Sez… Pets!

This week’s Simon is EBSQ artist S. Key. She has chosen “pets” as her theme. She said of her choice: “Bring ‘Em On!! Show me your “PETS” (you know, the ones that give you unconditional love, or worship the ground you walk on…LOL). We all have our favorite photo, painting, etc. Any media, limit of 5 (only because I know I am going to have a hard time choosing). I will make my pick next Sunday. Here is mine to start it off: Black/white photo, hand altered-daughter and her cat “Psycho”

Simon Sez… Shadows!

This week’s Simon is EBSQ artist Amanda Makepeace. The theme she chose for her turn as Simon is shadows. Amanda put her request this way: “The new challenge is SHADOWS! Open to paintings, drawings, photography…you name it. Since I was a bit slow realizing I won the last challenge (slaps head now) I will keep this one open till midnight on Monday 9th November.”

Thanks to @EBSQ for the idea! Here’s my contribution to get us all started.
