Today I showcase a local artist and friend out of Alpine, Oregon. Jewelry artisan, Jan O’Banion, of Jan E O Jewelry, forged this powerful jasper and German silver pendant loaded with mandala-like shapes. I love the vibrant red of the jasper seeming to be protected within the dramatic silver cocoon.
Continuing with the “showcasing local artists” theme, today I share with you this delightful acrylic painting by Corvallis artist and gallery owner, Jennifer Lommers. I love her whimsical poppies that shine with life and whimsy, welcoming the hummingbird home. This is one of my favorite paintings of Jennifer’s.
Oregon jewelry artisan and friend, Jan O’Banion made this gorgeous ReArt Tin and Mixed Metal Hummingbird Breastplate. I love her attention to details and her creative imagination of putting all these pieces together to form this one-of-a-kind work of art…with all kinds of mandala-like shapes.
