2014 Fall Matisse Derivan Painting Contest

Acrylics

Since 1964, Derivan has provided artists all over the world with fine acrylic products, including their famous Matisse range of professional acrylics. Based in Australia, the founders wanted to start a company "to make available to artists worldwide a premium paint, whilst remaining environmentally and socially responsible." The company has done just that, growing from a tiny business that operated out of stables in Sydney's inner city, to a multinational corporation. They are truly an innovative company, introducing the first student grade acrylics in the 1960s, as well as thee first non-toxic screen and block printing inks! Until recently, the company was known as "Matisse Derivan" as Matisse Acrylics were their only product at that time.

Are you an artist with a small working space? Can't find enough room in your studio, dorm, office or home for the paintings that are burning up with creativity inside of you, ready to be released? Well, Jerry's Artarama now has the perfect answer to your tight-space problems.

The new hanging Rue Wall Easel is the perfect answer for any artists looking for a stylish easel that barely takes up any space. It actually requires zero floor space and is incredibly easy to set up when its time to paint or create. Then when you finish your paintings, you can actually display it right on the easel, no frames required. You wont find a more stylish wall easel out there because the Rue Wall Easel is crafted from beautiful hardwoods and features all brass hardware. They look great in any art gallery too.

This easel is highly adjustable to meet all of your needs. It can hang flush against the wall or pull all the way out to a seventy degree angle. It is also height adjustable so that there is a wide range of heights to work from. And every adjustment is easy with turnable knobs that will hold your canvas at any height. And the easel even has room to mount an easel lamp for better lighting during the creative process or for highlighting your displayed work.

 

These convenient easels come in 3 great sizes:

  • The 24" wide, small Rue Easel holds canvases up to 34" tall and weighs only 19 lbs. 
  • The 32" wide, medium Rue Easel holds canvases up to 34" tall and weighs only 26 lbs.

Best Dog Art

Celebrating Man's Best Friend

Dogs have long been an inspiration for men, whether its in terms of survival in books like Call of the Wild and White Fang or more as a sign of comfort and companionship like in Marmaduke or Hachi. To dog owners, there is nothing like the companionship or love or loyalty that a dog can provide and artists such as Pablo Picasso and Norman Rockwell knew that. To celebrate this bond between man and beast, here are some of the best examples of art celebrating man's best friend.

1. Pablo Picasso- "Dog" Line Drawing

2. Norman Rockwell- "Boy and Girl Gazing at the Moon"

 

3. Andy Warhol- "Dachshund Print"

 

 

4.  George Rodrigue-  "Blue Dogs"

5. Jim Killen- Portraits of Sporting Dogs

 

6. Gail Kelley- Good Dog Art

 

7. John Silver- "The Last Biscuit"

 

8. Pierre-Auguste Renoir- "Madame Renoir with a Dog"

 

9. Edouard Manet- "A King Charles Spaniel"

 

10. Cassius Coolidge- "Waterloo"
