Love is in the Air and Pre-Shrunk is here to help!

Give someone you love or admire the gift of art! Our Pre-Shrunk show has been extended until February 17th, so there's still time to pick up an original work of art for Valentine's Day giving, or just because you care. We are certainly in love with this show and so are many of you! This year we had the largest response yet to the show from artists and visitors alike. It's very heartwarming to see people enjoying art so much! Thank you for visiting and to those that haven't, treat yourself to a look-see this week or ONLINE HERE.

James Janssen is a new artist to Argyle Fine Art. We began working with him this past summer on a special project. This was James' first time being part of Pre-Shrunk, and he created a series of paintings that tell the story of a woman in love at different stages of her life. The works are simply called First Life, Second Life, Third Life. It's such a wonderful narrative series that can be interpreted in many different ways. What's your story?

Of course, Valentine's Day wouldn't be complete without some flowers, like these Yellow Roses by George Spencer. These roses won't wilt or die, but live on like all great works of art, big or small. Long lasting!

One style of art and subject matter that isn't as common at the gallery are abstracts and nudes, but with artist Vanessa Cornelle, we can enjoy both together. This is just one of two Pre-Shrunk works still available by her in the show.This work is called Champagne Diaries XVII. 

What a dashing young man this is....although he seems to have an Iris as a head, but no matter! Lovely just the same! This wonderful paper collage is by artist Zanahoy and is called Portrait of Iris Barere.

And just in case your Valentine may be more on the cute side of things and maybe even a Star Wars fan, we just had to include these painted PORG-traits by Dylan Wells that make quite a couple!
