(Re)Genesis



Cassandra Barney’s portraits of women eloquently celebrate life’s passages and journeys. Rich with symbolism both ancient and modern, (Re)Genesis explores the cycle of personal growth, particularly the way life can teach us the same lessons over and over as we age. As the vine arcs above the woman and her stag its red flowers burst into bloom and fade again, like lovely reminders of the impermanence of thought.

A Christmas Eve Delivery



Christmas Eve Delivery is the third in William S. Phillips’ “Inns of Christmas Series,” having previously delighted his scores of loyal collectors with Christmas Eve at the Winchester Inn and Winter Visitors at the Kringle Hill Inn (right, both Sold Out at Publisher). This year, Phillips captures the spirit of the season with a heartwarming Christmas Eve tale. “An unusual Christmas Eve snowstorm has descended upon North Carolina bringing holiday travel to a near standstill,” Phillips explains.“Highways and airports are closed, forcing travelers to find shelter as the roads are cleared. For the fortunate family who has checked into the Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn and Garden, it will prove to be a most wonderful Christmas experience.The Inn’s gracious owners, John and Patty Byrne, knowing their guests disappointment at not spending Christmas Eve with loved ones, have sent for a Christmas tree with all the trimmings to be delivered to their room.A young boy with his faithful friend has volunteered to provide the delivery service in his wagon. After an elegant Christmas Eve dinner and some eggnog and spiced cider with cookies by the fire, our stranded travelers will return to a room decorated with the cheerful glow of a very special Christmas Eve tree.”

A Few Of My Favorite Things

A Helping Hand



I learned a lot about spinning wheels while painting this piece and how different threads and yarns were spun from fleece a century ago by pioneer women. It is a very quiet, serene and meditative art form that I witnessed as my model worked in my studio for hours as I painted. This is also the perfect backdrop for a two year old to wreak havoc and I am experiencing this part first hand in my studio every day with our child. One can imagine this mother’s reaction when she soon turns to see why her girl is being so quiet!

A Love Letter



Love owns one holiday, but giving these works of art will remind your Valentine of your love all year long. Cassie Barney’s Ex Votos are created in recognition of life being an ongoing series of miracles. And surely love is one of the grandest them of all. Each Ex Votos is a fine art offering commissioned as the result of an answered prayer and displayed to acknowledge gratitude for it having happened. For the celebration of love, they are the perfect gift at the perfect time.



Both A Love Letter and My Valentine are styled with the look of the tin-paneled works found in shrines across Mexico and can be hung alone, together or with the other Ex Votos. “These little artworks are painted out of gratitude for the miracles, protection and prayers answered not only in my life, but for many of us,” says artist Cassandra Barney. “In conceiving these, it didn’t seem that I was illustrating an idea, but sharing and exchanging one. It is a chance to savor that feeling and say ‘thank you’ for letting me experience the miracle of love.”



Love is what the heart can hold and each of these Ex Votos embraces this exceptional yet familiar emotion with beauty and grace. Send A Love Letter that will be written anew every time she looks upon it. Or let a cherub of love visit daily with My Valentine. True love is an answered prayer, let her know you feel that way, too.

A New Beginning



“Any healing process can be a lengthy one,” says Steve Hanks. “Often it can be helped by attempting to visualize the future. Such is the inspiration for A New Beginning. This is, in fact, the final painting in a series of three that have used the ascent of the staircase to track this woman’s passage. By reaching the landing at the top, she has completed her growing process and is ready to move on. This staircase reminds us to take things in life one step at a time, that a promise of reward and satisfaction—the top of the staircase—and a new view of the world around you, is a situation you can help create for yourself.” “In my paintings, when there’s a sidewalk or shoreline going off into the distance, I sometimes use this area to represent people in the subject’s mind. You may notice that in A New Beginning that there are no people down the sidewalk, and that the background is left blank; the woman has visualized an open road in her future. Additionally, I used a different model for this painting than I did in the first two, to further illustrate the metamorphosis: you are not the same person at the top of the staircase that you were at the bottom.” Join us in welcoming Steve Hanks to the Greenwich Workshop family of artists. We are pleased to offer A New Beginning as one of his first fine art limited editions, an offering even more symbolic as we too look forward to a long and beautiful road ahead.

A Place Of Her Own



“I wanted to create a retreat,” says artist James C. Christensen, “a secluded little nook filled with art and books where a woman could really get away from it all. Here, the tension melts away as lilting strains of lute music drift across the overstuffed cushions. The objects in the room represent the things that I believe are important to a full and satisfying life: Rembrandt’s painting Aristotle Contemplating the Bust of Homer (culture and the arts); the medieval Unicorn Tapestries (magic and belief); maps (curiosity and exploration); sheet music (music and creativity) and the books, treasures which represent the collected wisdom of the ages. Take a close look at the books—there’s one of my very favorite new books buried in there somewhere!”

Adara And Her Sister



Influenced by art of the 16th century and the princess postcards she collected as a child, Cassandra Christensen Barney loves the simple storytelling found in portraits. “I loved that the characters were not always pretty, but looked like regular people playing dress up,” Cassandra says. “Ambiguous and poignant, they are not vain, not beautiful in the classic sense, unafraid to bare their melancholy and even show some sadness,” she says. “Their beauty is in their simplicity, which easily allows the viewer in and to wonder what they are thinking.” Adara and Her Sister is rich in symbolism. The name Adara translates as “beauty,” the butterfly is fragile and short-lived, and the vines which surround them subtly suggest the bonds of family.

After Practice



This painting captures the moment after a child finished practicing the piano. Before practicing the piano he had just gotten done with baseball practice and had set his ball and mitt on the floor. It shows that there can be a balance between sports and music in a child’s life.

After The Masquerade



The masquerade here refers to the fleeting disguise of youth and of temporal beauty and worth. The young woman sits and ponders her own journey through the masquerade of life. Like the bouquet of flowers, her physical beauty is in full bloom for all to admire, but soon those things that are pleasing only to the physical senses shrivel and fade away. If these earthly things shall all pass away, then placing undue value and importance on them is as foolish as believing that the activities of a masquerade or a carnival have some enduring importance in our lives. Discovering the grand illusion of such temporal things need not be discouraging, depressing, or disappointing--far from it! Observe the young woman. Her eyes are closed and yet she is beginning to see with her spiritual eyes. She is awakening to a new vision of things as they really are. She sees that "real life" goes beyond the superficial and trancscends the material world. That clear and uncluttered sight begins to bring a wonderful kind of rest and repose. A peaceful smile begins to cross her face--the masquerade is over!

Airship Adventures



All aboard the kitchen table for a journey to the sky! It's now our magic airship, and it can really fly! Off to new adventures, above the clouds we go, Sailing on imagination's breeze, we leave the earth below. For fun we like to parachute and quietly float down, And have our vessel pick us up before we hit the ground. Up here there are no limits to the sights that one can see, And we think that we could sail forever into eternity. Then comes the call that sends us home as fast as we are able, It's dinnertime, and Mother says we have to set the table.
