Elizabeth loves to capture the human figure in oil, acrylic and pastels. The image here, "Tracy" is acrylic and pastel on paper. You can see how she captures the figure -- yet expresses her paintings with colors lines and textures. Original Parashis pieces are offered starting at $95. She has paintings on board, paper, and canvas.

Welcome to the bright, bold, beautiful imagery by Don Dahlke. Your senses are ignited. Feel the warmth of the sun, hear the wind in the fronds, smell the sea air, a bit of paradise you can take home! Don’s trademark is the tropical shadows and also intriguing are the specific details within each piece.These are objects of significance from his life, the stories of which we can only imagine.
Eileen Graham is a mostly figurative artist, this piece is called "Passage," an original oil. Graham's work usually has a narrative in her work which this piece illustrates: What is the woman thinking, what is her mood...
This picture shows the front section of the east wall. Visible is three works by Vicki Asp: a triptych "California Vista," an original acrylic of Lake Tahoe's Emerald Bay, a giclee of a California vineyard. Eileen Graham's original piece titled 'Late Morning' is on the back portable wall, hanging above a piece titled "Dragonfly Lotus" by Steve Memering along with a very nice handcrafted chair and some plein aire works.

I thought to include some pics of the interior of the gallery -- so the blog reader can get an idea of the look and feel of the gallery that one is not able to get by viewing disembodied pictures of the art.
Gary Coleman states "My landscapes may start with a generally realistic sketch, but once work in the studio begins, painting takes precedent over scene, emotional response over strictly visual response. My paintings are more about something than they are of it. The push of color to extremes, and the use of line to imply motion help me show what I feel about a scene or abstract idea."
Joan Harvey creates her art using mixed media: acrylics, and found objects such as maps, dress forms and tickets.
Vicki Asp is our premier California landscape painter. She develops the view -- using a strong color palette -- that captures the landscape as a real place, but with an powerful attraction because of the colors that she choses to use.
Pictured is "Vineyard Sunset," original acrylic on canvas, 36" x 48" offered at $3,650.
The Stone Griffin Gallery is a fine art gallery located in beautiful Downtown Campbell, Calif. We specialize in California landscapes by local artists in oil and acrylic on canvas.
