This acrylic painting by the collaborative artists of Canvas By Canvas was inspired by the famous Las Colinas, Texas sculpture. Wild mustangs such as these were once important inhabitants of much of Texas. STAMPEDE is painted on five Ampersand deep wood cradled panels measuring 20" x 16" each. When combined the panels create a painting totaling 20 inches tall and 80 inches wide. No frame is necessary as each panel hangs separately to create a panorama of the wild horses running through the water . . . . Awesome!
This painting and much more will be on display at the Breckenridge Fine Arts Center just west of the Dallas-Fort Worth area from March 5 to April 13. Visit the gallery http://www.breckenridgefineart.org/Future-Shows.html or the Canvas by Canvas website http://www.canvasbycanvas.com

The Parks Mall in Arlington is getting a major re-do. There were many small pigeon statues throughout the mall, up in the rafters and high beams. These were donated, and after being redecorated by area artists, the newly beautified pigeons will be auctioned off in November to benefit River Legacy Park. Stay tuned for further details on how YOU can get one of them!
In another collaborative effort, each Canvas by Canvas artist has selected a pigeon to repurpose - "Golden Girl " is the contribution of artist Elizabeth Mitchell Taylor - This pretty gold pigeon looks like she has laid a giant goose egg. Nestled in soft turquoise feathers on a golden platter, the egg may just hatch soon!

Painted in warm neutrals with metallic copper and gold accents, the detail has to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.
Each square measures 6” x 6” and all are mounted in a custom frame which measures 26” x 30”. Each of the artists of Canvas by Canvas painted several of the canvases in this collaborative effort and signed her pieces on the canvas edges. The artists believe this piece illustrates the art of language in alphabetical order!

This magnificent painting by the Canvas By Canvas artists is so intricate and creative that you will delight in all the things you see everytime you look!! One of our artists found this wonderful scarf in a charming antique shop in Ft. Worth, Texas. Next to it was a box of old ornate magnifying glasses. It was too hard to resist....she put the scarf out on the table as the shopkeeper watched in amusement and arranged the magnifying glasses on the scarf.....and was amazed at the beautiful creation. A photo couldn't do it justice.....we had to paint it!! You might say it became our "Magnificent Obsession!". As with all of our paintings, photos cannot possible do them justice!! You have to look closely and follow all the brush strokes and realize how amazing it is that each square is painted by a different artist.
"Magnify" is a painting containing nine 10-inch canvases that are framed together in a custom black wood frame. Including frame it is approximately 32" by 32" This colorful piece will be a perfect accent in any decor.
The artists are offering this painting at the special magnificent price of $1,200. You can see more paintings at our website http://www.canvasbycanvas.com/

The most popular Jukebox of all time, and the one most often seen on mugs, t-shirts, etc. is the Wurlitzer Model 1015, popularly referred to as the "bubbler". This jukebox was produced in 1946-47 and its long-lasting popularity was driven by an advertising campaign by Wurlitzer which splashed the 1015's image in advertisements in Life and Look magazines, the Saturday Evening Post, as well as on thousands of billboards across the country. Although it is still being produced today, the colorful machine evokes memories of our youth spent doing the jitterbug, bee-bop, and grooving to rock and roll!
Another nostalgic painting by Canvas by Canvas, this piece is comprised of nine 8” x 10” canvases created by the Canvas By Canvas artists, each discreetly signed with the initials of each painter. The canvases are framed together in a custom-made sturdy wood frame that is built to last for generations.
“Put Another Nickel In . . .” is available for sale and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the participating artists. Visit our website at http://www.canvasbycanvas.com/ for purchase information.

IMAGINE . . . each square of every painting is done by a different artist!
Canvas by Canvas is a group of Texas artists who share a love
of painting and have a unique friendship. Their individual painting styles are as
different as their signatures but they unite their painting
voices to produce dramatic art.Each square of every painting is
done by a different Canvas by Canvas artist, and the
charm of the finished painting lies in the individuality of style found in each section.
Each canvas is initialed on the front and signed on the side by the artist
who painted it. The front of the painting is also
signed with the Canvas by Canvas group signature.

Canvas by Canvas members, Maryann, Nancy, Connie, (Marlene from the Museum) and Cindy at the Old Post Office and Museum Center in Graham, Texas, as we break for the July 4 parade. There is very interesting reading about the history of the area and exhibits if you click on the link. Thanks to all the volunteers who made our opening day very special. Our paintings will hang there until the first part of September so if you're in the area check out our paintings. This is the first time all of them have been hung together. What a treat to see them all in one place and be reminded of the dedication and work that has gone into their production.
We met early for the 2 hour drive and were welcomed to the museum show by a wonderful staff and group of volunteers. We had some time to step outside the door and under the shade of a large tree enjoy the July 4 parade while some of us enjoyed a lesson in water witching. We loved meeting new friends, having them tell us their favorite works and were surprised by a beautiful lunch before our Graham supporters bid us goodbye. Thanks to Red and his wife, Jay and Martha, Danny, Marlene and Tom and to all our visitors - thanks so much for stopping by and introducing yourselves. You have a treasure in Graham with your museum. Thanks for the invitation to show and visit in your town.

Acrylic Painting on canvas 6 9”x12”, framed at 40” x 31.5”
So Wendell Eckert is known to us by way of a Maryann TUTLIMN. His daughter, Gretchen, gave Maryann a photo of his vintage Cessna 195, built in 1949, as a basis of our painting. The call numbers of the plane were 77 Victor and can be seen on the wing and the numbers are unique to that individual plane. It is the call number the towers use to direct the plane for landing or other orders.
The plane was built in 1949 and was used by Wendell as the lead plane for the US Forest service primarily in the Sequoia forest. His job was to strategically lead the bombers into the forest to drop the fire retardant. The US Forest Service referred to Wendell as the “Voice of the Sequoias” since he was the lead plane for forest fires for thirty years.
An admirer of Wendell, William (Tim) McMaster has a video of one of his flights on YouTube and he’s seen taking a beautiful bride for a celebratory flight. Wendell was 79 years old in this clip and he began flying in college in
Mr. McMaster told Gretchen he put the video on YouTube with hopes she might enjoy it someday. He said “We loved your Dad very much”. The Cessna 195 is unique as it is a radial engine tail dragger and few of the planes have survived the years because the planes are very temperamental and require very experienced pilots.
Watch the video to see Wendell with the Cessna 195 and enjoy some good music with the ride.Gretchen and ZoAnn and Tim thank you for providing the information so that CBC could enjoy painting this work and getting to know your story.

This is also our birthday. I love being part of Canvas by Canvas and what the nine of us have come to mean to each other. I love searching the internet for blogs and websites of other artists, and I love leaving them messages and receiving their responses. What artist isn't happy to be noticed and have someone take time to respond to their work? What a great way to meet new friends and see what incredible talent is out there.
The red truck in the photo is the third in a series we've painted of red trucks and it's one of two commissions we've just completed for someone we think is pretty special. Trucks seem to be popular painting subjects for artists and viewers alike. Can you think of anything that has made us more independent that transportation? And to have transportation that's FUN, too ... what more could we ask? Maybe a red truck, a full moon and someone you love to share the fireworks...?

"Save a seat for Kinky 2" for Canvas by Canvas
This is a commission for a larger version of our "Kinky" painting and you can see it On the Easel in progress.
Our easel paintings will be moved out to our paintings when finished so you might need to just check the Paintings menu if the link doesn't work. It depends on the time factor when you read this post. I finished this yesterday at TUG and we are starting another painting of an old Mercury. (We will have a show there in July and more to come.)

Nancy painted the "H" square in the new painting, Magnify, by Canvas by Canvas
Acrylic on Canvas
Our signature style is nine 10" canvases painted by each of the 9 members and you will see this one soon as a sneak peak on the CBC web site and it is kept very up to date by Betty Taylor (real name Elizabeth Taylor!!) one of the nine. She's our efficient web guru. Each member of the group provides and shares their talents and special gifts and this makes for a stronger organization and more painting experiences. I know if I weren't a part of this group I would not have painted this square ever on my own. For the 10" size painting a member presents an idea and if the majority rule in favor, it gets painted. CBC member, Karen Foster, took this photograph at a local antique shop and what were we thinking? We voted yes. However, anyone can begin a project on their own in a non-standard format without the majority votes. For example, if you've just taken the perfect longhorn photo and you just have to paint it, decide on the size canvas you want and you'll have 8 others to meet with you at the Upstairs Gallery and draw for squares. Not all members can paint together on a given Monday but TUG is a great place to meet when we can and the studio has large tables and an overhead mirror.
This painting will be entered into an art show based on Luke 15 and the parable of the Lost Coin. In my 10" square I got a small piece of this coin to paint and this is the second Monday of painting on this square and I'm finished and I am sooooo glad.

This is one of the Canvas by Canvas' newest paintings and can be seen "On the Easel" on the home page.
Yesterday found some of the members hanging our show at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center Art Cafe. Excusa if some of the photos are a little blurry or off centered as our main concern was getting them hung, centered and 58" from the floor.
Karl Umlauf will have a show in the main gallery area. To read more about the artist, check out the June FWCAC newsletter. Other sites of interest would be the Gallery 2 David Dike Fine Art and Estates and David Dike Fine Art.
Classical station WRR 101.1 FM has the event on their arts calendar and will be announcing other details.
See some of our paintings below and please visit the FWCAC and check them out in person as they will appear a lot clearer than in this slide show. Mouse over for captions. If you're not familiar with our work, we are a collaborative group of 9 artists and we each will paint an individual square and look closely at the paintings and you will find our initials somewhere on each square.
