Guest Post: Artist Art Tyndall in Washington, NC

Walk one block from the waterfront of Little Washington on Water Street and you’ll discover the hidden gem of an art studio where pleinair painter Art Tyndall sells his creations. I stumbled into Art’s studio a few years ago while visiting my aunt, and I make a point to visit his studio on every trek across the state.

Art’s studio is a 15×25′ store-front where light streams through the transom windows and his original oil paintings fill the bead – board walls. Looking at the tidewater landscapes, figures and local buildings, you can feel the joy that Art pours from his brush to the canvas. Many would consider painting a second career for Art as he started his self-taught venture at the age of 50.

Each piece that Art creates is one-of-a-kind and very personal. While he enjoys selling his work, even if he did not sell, he would continue to paint. His prices range from $150 to $2,000 and you can commission a special request by contacting him at arttyndallstudio@gmail.com or by visiting him in person at the Water Street Studio on the waterfront of historic Washington, North Carolina.

Stop by, say hello and tell him that Janet sent you. I forgot to take him a jar of homemade blackberry jelly, but that’s a great excuse for me to visit in a few months.

Many thanks to my dear friend, Janet Morgan, who introduced me to Art’s art and shared his story with us here at Handmade NC. 

Dan Carmichael Fine Art & Photography Highlights the Beauty of Snow

North Carolina artist and photographer Dan Carmichael captures our state in all her moods and seasons, whether it’s the tenor of the waves or the peace of the rare snowfall. You’ll see images beyond the cliche icons of our state, yet each photo still evokes North Carolina’s personality in myriad ways. Picture North Carolina showcases his work from photos to paintings. There are scenes from around the state, some are of recognizable monuments and others of secret places awaiting the serendipitous discovery. His photographs and paintings reflect light, mood, and season with both vibrant colors and muted shades.

I’ve never met Dan but stumbled upon his work. I’m positively mesmerized by his photos. In light of the snow in our future (fingers crossed!), you might appreciate how he has captured snowfall in North Carolina. Wintry weather is a rarity so it’s lovely to see it documented in its resplendent, romantic glory.
