Kickstarter.com

A friend turned me on to Kickstarter.com. an online platform for raising funds for small business ventures.  I want my own special gallery, off the beaten path, a place to discover.  I want one in Northern California.  I have a nice place to display in Fayetteville, NC and Wilmington, NC.  But, I want my own space to showcase my art, produce and meet customers.  It is so important to remain professional and be surrounded by your works.  So, I went to Kickstarter with a fundraising campaign in hopes to raise the capital to invest in opening up my own space.  Take a look: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1636411664/green-man-mosaic-art-gallery

A Stoic Reunion

10" stained glass mosaic plate. " Time Warp To Paradise" by VIctor NUnnally -gift
 Portland, Oregon has been a  place of tribal reunion.  There was a time when I worked and resided at a primitive Eco Resort on the Island of ST John.  It was called Maho Bay Camps. 114 stick built cabins nestled on a dense forested hillside connected by wooden boardwalks and hundreds of stairs.  It was a village of pure enchantment where the employees lived and worked together.  It was somewhat of a civil experiment.  20 years I spent journeying to and fro since 1986. It was there in 2000 that I wanted to start being an artist and to find my style of expression.  It was there where I created my first mosaic. I made this plate for the Art Director who had asked me to produce the initial piece.  She is here in Portland and I am about to go see her and her husband.  This is for them.  Maho Bay was something very special to a lot of people.  Unfortunately it's 40 year lease ran out in 2013 and the Angels wept as it was closed down and the property sold.  However, I understand a conservationist purchased the 14 acres and plans to keep it intact.  We are the Maho Tribe and there are hundreds (if not thousands) of us who experienced a lifestyle that proved to be wondrous.  Thank you Stanley Selengut, the founder and creator.  I have encountered numerous tribe members on this West Coast Journey.  It is great to see so many.  I painted an Oil Painting of Maho Bay.  I wonder where it is.

Thank you Miss P for organizing a fundraiser for helping artists find affordable housing in San Francisco. Thank you JD for hosting the event.  A very nice evening and it gave me a chance to do a mini Art Show. I now have a commission for a rather interesting Lantern.  Let's see what I come up with.

Wow, The Columbia Gorge and Mount Hood scenic route is breathtaking to say the least!  What a Gem. Thank you very much Bob!  That was a fun excursion.

A Portland Creation

"Hope" by Victor Nunnally 42" x 13"  stained glass mosaic window


"Hope" by Victor Nunnally 42" x 13"  stained glass mosaic window.

Portland, Oregon is quite a change from San Francisco.   A green city with a casual and easy going appeal, of winding roads and fascinating characters.  There is lots to explore in this city.  But downtown looks tired.  San Francisco is breathing fire right now with it's high end economy. They say it rains a lot here but so far the weather has been pleasant.  A great place to exist as an artist. Thank you Bob, Michelle, BJ, and Austin for your hospitality.  This Flower piece "Hope" was inspired by something I witnessed, something very sad and dark but, there is always hope that the skies will clear and the light will devour all that muck.

San Francisco Days




"Sunrise" by Victor Nunnally 30 x 13" stained glass mosaic

I have been on a journey.  I have headed to the west coast hoping to get distribution.  Early days yet but I did receive my first commission for a lantern so it could be a sign of good things to come.  I thought it appropriate to produce Journeyman #9, the largest of the series at 45" x 22".  The hawk on the lantern was my first.  I thought he came out cool.  Prices are higher out here so getting use to it all.  Excited to see what I end up producing and where this journey leads.  Thank you JD for all your hospitality.  I am looking for a space to produce so if anybody happens to read this and knows of a neat spot please let me know.
Victor it’s here and it’s GORGEOUS - really and truly, above and beyond, stunningly gorgeous.  My husband, Hawk, loves it.  We love it so much we may ask you to make more.  We’re moving to a new house in Ojai and we’re in the midst of redoing things.  At this point, please just know how grateful I am and happy that there are artists like you in the world.

24" stained glass bistro top. The Last Monarch by Victor Nunnally 2011
I went down to Atlanta last week to fetch this beauty that had been on display at a Floral shop.  It is always nice to see my pieces again. They always get more beautiful with age. 
The Last Monarch.
I have been reading about the decline of the Monarch Butterfly.  The government is putting together a plan to keep them from going extinct.

Journey Man #8 by Victor Nunnally

30.5" x 23" Stained Glass Mosaic Window "Journeyman #8" 2015 by Victor Nunnally






Here is #8 of The Journeyman Series.  Much to see in this mosaic.  A sleeping fox, a gold angel guarding a glass heart with a key inside, a golden book, a bird with white roses, an owl, a Zeppelin,  a rabbit and frog...and many other gems, crystals, and stones.  The Journeyman is on a quest and doing it in style and individualism.  An original art of wonder and beauty.

Revisiting Days Of Heaven

On the Mantle was something incredible, alive and moving.  I could feel and smell the crispness of the air and under my feet I heard the crackling of the golden grass.  And there...in the distance I saw my old dog, Jenkins as if he has been waiting for me under the full moon and a luminous star...before me the three golden oaks stood majestic, silent,... perfection.  These were the days of heaven...
