An opening reception will also be held on Sunday, October 9 from 1-3pm. Both events will be held at the Hafter Student Center, located at 50 Breyer Drive in Elkins Park, PA. - See more at:

They also created a nice little online book of images which you can see here:

The image above is a mixed media piece. First a cyanotype photogram was created then I applied watercolors to it.
Another piece in the show is the little red rose bud in front of a stone wall background. (Below left)
These two are for sale and are part of the group show.

Rosebud Study

A third piece, a little rose study, (below right) is a donated original watercolor which is among the pieces which will be sold at their Oct 29th auction to benefit the charity ""Looking Out For Kids" which helps to provide eye care and glasses to kids who need but cannot afford them. $100 wins it! Info on that here:

20% of sales from this art show will go toward the charity. If you're not otherwise occupied, feel free to stop in on Sunday for the reception, say hi, and meet some ARTsisters.

"American Dreams" at Old City Jewish Art Center

"Orlando Eagle" (c) 2016 Jeanne Guerin-Daley

Artwork by members of ARTsisters will be exhibited for the month of July at the Old City Jewish Art Center, located at 119 N 3rd Street in Philadelphia PA. 19106. OCJAC is between Arch and Cherry Streets.
To read an article about the exhibition, click here:

I have had numerous reasons why my art productivity has slowed lately, (am being pulled in many directions) but I stepped it up a notch in order to create something for this exhibit. Each ARTsister was to create artwork relating what the "American Dream" means to her. No doubt many images will be positive ones, especially with the Democratic Convention happening in Philadelphia very soon.

My painting's message is not so positive, since I chose to paint a reaction to the recent murders in Orlando, Florida and what it has done to our country. (I tried to insert a photo of the painting here, but am having tech problems. For some reason, Blogger wants to place it in sideways! Apologies. I guess you'll just have to come see the exhibit to see my painting.) Fixed it!

There will be two receptions for this show:
First Friday: July 1 from 5 until 9pm
Sunday afternoon: July 24 from 2 until 4 pm.
Reception is free and open to the public.

Pictured here is a recent pencil portrait of Sammy, a friend's dog.

Something about his face says "Paint me!"
So, I haven't yet painted him but I did draw him.
maybe will paint him next....

Send me your dog pix! Keep me painting! (/drawing!)

You can email them to

Put "Dog Portrait" in the Subject line.
Tell me the breed too, if you know it.

A Christmas Wish

I posted the poem below a couple years ago, it still fits to the season,.....
(picture is new though... )
"Poinsettia" 4x6.5" watercolor (c) 2015 Jeanne Guerin-Daley

A Wish for You
I wanted to send you a holiday card
To wish you glad tidings and a great New Year's start.
But alas! there's no time! with the hustle and bustle
of Christmas preparedness. Oh such a fussle!
There's shopping and wrapping and baking and kissing
Folks under the mistletoe. Now what am I missing?
Oh yeah, there's the tree to be bought and set up,
And the lights to be strung, then hot cocoa in cup.
There's hardly a minute to spare to go paint
Inside me a voice yells, "C'mon, I can't wait!
To pick up that brush and create some nice art!
Then frame it and show it with all of my heart."
Oh, one day I do hope that things will slow down
So I can paint more and do more for the town.
A mural perhaps, at the Little League park,
Or a faux for the day care, a light tan on dark!
Until then I wish from the depths of my soul
That everyone gets what they wished for, not coal,
But joy, love and peace in this world that we live
And a magical Christmas with spirit to give!
                -Jeanne Guerin-Daley

New Medium

I have been playing around with a new medium.

Here is one example...
and another.
Then I learned how to mix more muted colors...


Still investigating, experimenting, playing.

More to come...

Please feel free,... I invite you to share your impressions in the comments section.

Portrait of Mystic: Finished!

I had been working on a pet portrait commission and now that it is finished, I can share it with you.

My previous portraits had been in acrylic on canvas. This one is watercolor on hot pressed 140 lb watercolor paper. I haven't packed away forever my acrylic brushes; I'm just taking a break for a bit in order to play on paper! I am thoroughly enjoying my current watercolor adventures.

Now that this is done, I am available to take on my next project. Do you have a favorite pet of your or of a friend or loved one? Portraits make unique gifts!

Email me with your idea!
