The Engagement

by Cassandra Christensen Barney

At first glance, the viewer is drawn to the rich imagery and color of Cassandra Christensen Barney’s Fine Art Limited Editions. One of the staples of Barney’s exquisite portraiture is her ability to layer her work with rich symbolism. The Engagement explores concepts of promise, commitment and hope. The uncaged bird chooses to offer a gift, presenting our heroine with a poppy—which is both beautiful and fragile. Within the poppy is a ring, the symbol of eternity and a flame, symbolizing desire. There are also a pair of poppies entwined and waiting to blossom.

Influenced by art of the 16th century, artist Cassandra loves the narrative aspect of portraits. Each of her truly unique paintings is a frank, compelling and often mysterious portrait of the “muses” of our daily lives.The feminine charms of her characters have captured the attention of the sophisticated fine art collector.

The Dog Show

by Sally Caldwell Fisher

Artist Sally Caldwell Fisher loves exploring the leisure time activities of her colorful subjects and what better place to do so than at The Dog Show.The prestigious Morris and Essex Kennel Club, founded in 1927 by Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge, is the setting for this fun-filled canvas. “This painting celebrates Mrs. Dodge’s original vision,” says Caldwell Fisher, who employed many images from the Kennel Club archives in formulating her composition.“The Club’s posh landscaping, the elegant attire befitting the times, and, of course, the universal theater involving dogs and their indulgent owners gave me great license to have fun.”With many eccentric subjects of both the two and four legged variety, Sally Caldwell Fisher’s delightful The Dog Show is a dog fancier’s dream come true.
