Richmond artist Cecilia Campos won second place for her acrylic on canvas, Womb. The work is part of her “Ephemeral” series, and she said the glass containers refer to Earth. “I reflect in my paintings the time that we live in and my greatest concern; the fragility and ephemerality of life on our planet. Although my art will not change the way people act, I can bring to light the life on our planet that we must look after,” Campos said. … [Read more...] about Archway Gallery takes juried art show online amid pandemic

4. A no-can pantry View this post on Instagram Two years ago today we moved into our home here at Simple Man Farm. For those of you that don’t know, we had a fire at the apartment we were living at on 1/1/17, while we were away on a cruise with our family. We lost everything except what we had in storage. So, we moved into our new home with 2 plastic Adirondack chairs, 2 stools, and a mattress. We have come a long way from that day, with more to come.
