Books and Photos

Our members have been busy this year.  Joe Smiga will have his 7th book published this summer. The cover photo is by his wife and this blogger, Linda H. Feinberg. This is a western, a sequel to A Cowboy's Vengeance.  All of his books are available on his website (you get a signed copy), or through Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Poetry by author and artist Linda H. Feinberg, red poppies and green clover, is now available for Kindle at: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KKRUOF4 
The poems are from 1979-1985 and take the reader on a journey as her marriage ends. She includes poems about her friends and family who give her the strength to continue her growth and ends with finding her true love and continuing her journey. You can also preview the introduction and first few poems of the book by clicking on the image on the Amazon site. The cover art is from an acrylic painting of a canal in Leuven, Belgium.  The author lived there from 1969-1974 and the title of the book is from one of the poems in the collection, reflecting her time there.

John Mitchell contributed some beautiful sky photos for this week's blog:
John said these were taken in Concord, across the street from the state prison. Thanks for submitting your work.

I hope all our readers have taken the time to go to City Hall and look at our artwork and photos there. Ten of our members submitted work for this gallery and you will enjoy it.

Portraits and Exhibit

La Poeta, oil painting

Extensive traveling has allowed me to observe first hand, the range and diversity of humanity, skin tones features and character.  I search for that fleeting moment that captures the strength and gentleness of my subject.

Beatriz Bearden

Bea is a new member of Friends of Art Manchester, but has been studying art at the New Hampshire Institute of Art and with other instructors for several years.  She specializes in portraits, but also paints landscapes.

Roha, oil painting
