Working the Land – Signed Limited Edition Giclee Art Print by Arie Vardi
About the Artist
Arie was born in Chile in 1956.
After graduating in Graphic Design in Jerusalem he became a member of a Kibbutz on the edge of the Negev Desert where he began to experiment with jewellery.
His paintings are mainly landscapes, inspired by a deep connection with the Scottish countryside and in particular with Perthshire and the West Coast. He begins with sketches on the spot and reference photographs.
These are taken back to the studio with the aim to capture the mood and emotion felt when originally contemplating the scenery. This in turn creates a constant change in the work. The elemental form of the land, especially the connective points of the sea and shore or hill and sky, is of particular interest.
Colour and vibrancy are essential to the work and these in turn are inspired by Arie’s Mediterranean roots. Many of Arie’s fine works are in private and public collections.
Brrr. A little frosty this morning – hence my choice of art print for today is Winter Calm by Lin Pattullo.
Lin is a versatile painter who can turn her skilful hand to figurative work as well as landscapes, seascapes, urban scenes and still lifes. There is a subtlety in colour, tone and composition in her work.

After studies at Jordanhill College of Education, and a period of teaching she became the Art Director of Glasgow Arts Centre.

Until April 2008 Dronma was a part time lecturer at Forth Valley College. She now devotes her time fully to her painting, And is a past president of Glasgow Society of Women Artists. Awarded Scottish Amicable Award 2007 125th Anniversary Exhibition.
Her paintings have gained her a fine reputation amongst discerning buyers of contemporary Scottish Art, as a “New Scottish Colourist”.
Her expressive landscapes may be wild and windswept, but they also gleam with an inner light.
Her work has been exhibited all over the United Kingdom, and are in private collections world-wide. In 2008 she took part in the Primavera Art Rotterdam, and also exhibited in Vienna. Dronma’s work is also in a private collection in Delhi.
Her unusual name is her Tibetan Buddhist name, since becoming a Tibetan Buddhist in 1976.
I love the changing moods of light, colour and atmosphere, and I am fascinated with the vibrancy of change, the point of “in-between” .
