Featured Artist Banner

Paula Noblitt is the Featured Artist for the 1st Quarter of 2017. Paula’s acrylic painting, “Girl, Book, Cat” explores the simple pleasures of reading a good book with a pet by your side. The loosely painted soft background represents the readers’ loss of awareness as she delves into the theme of the book, while her dreamy gaze, looking directly at the viewer, brings her back to reality. The cat facing opposite the book is perhaps enjoying her own dream.

Check out our Fine Art America Friends of NTAL group featuring member art hosted there. You can purchase prints and often find an original for sale as well.
