a little history…

I thought I’d share some of more of my work here so you can see what happens as my art blooms with the season!

The collection of originals and reproductions…

The Painting Season

As I find my way in the world of art I will be exploring my own style, the world of artists, the digital age of art and all things for art and the artist.  After a 5 year hiatus from painting in any sort of regular sense,  I’m back.  I studied and taught for 10 years using the Gluck Method and recieved a very thorough education in drawing and painting.

It’s time to find out… who is Athena Mantle Owen, the artist?  How does one really make it as an artist?   Let’s find out – it’s painting season!

Early paintings:

This is a colored pencil drawing my Mom gave me last year that she saved.  Mom’s are good for that sort of thing.

One of my first color still lives.  This wasn’t the first, but maybe 4th one I ever did.

This zebra study was done working from a photograph.

This Monet reproduction was one of my first, it’s not your typical Monet.

A still life watercolor study.
