Artist of the moment………Thomas Scheibitz


Thomas Scheibitz is a wonderful German artist renown or his abstract paintings and sculpture. Thomas Scheibitz was born in Radeberg, Saxony, Germany in the year 1968. Much of his art is very loosely based on the figure or landscapes.

The artist attended the Dresden School of Fine Arts.

In this video we visit the studio of Thomas Scheibitz:

Scheibitz works in many mediums including marker, felt tip pen, graphite, gouache, watercolor,  acrylics, oils, sculpture, and photography.

Price range information: Works range from $5,000 to $200,000.

In this clip we view a show featuring Thomas Scheibitz with our artistic amigo James Kalm:

Below a link to the website of the artist:


Scheibitz is now based out of Berlin, Germany.

This is a wonderful form of abstract art because it loosely resembles so many things that many viewers of his work can see different ideas and images in his work. I am really fond of the image of the man with the hat in the gallery.



Artist of the moment…….Virginia Stroud



Virginia Stroud is an Native American artist renown for her paintings of the female figure.  Virginia Stroud was born in Madera, California in the year 1951. Stroud is of Cherokee and Creek descent was raised in Oklahoma with a Kiowa background.

Stroud attended Bacone Junior College located in Muskogee, Oklahoma. She went on to attend the University of Oklahoma located in Norman. She studied elementary education and art.

The artist has won numerous awards from Native American Art appreciation organizations.

Stroud works in oils and acrylics and is also an avid printmaker.

Price range information: No pricing available on originals. Prints can be found from $50 to $500.

I enjoy the minimalist aspect of Stroud’s artwork. Though she doesn’t paint facial features, we get a feeling of the emotional pitch of her figures from the depictions of their bodies. Her horses are also very simple and elegant.
