My sister Fay Finch Kelley is also an accomplished artist, prefers oil on canvas. The following is a small sample of her work. I also draw and paint but have not done so in years. Recently I researched our family tree and found the source of all the talent...our mother! Emma May Finch was descended from a long line of artist, both on her mother and fathers side of the pedigree. I understand our great grandmother has paintings hung in a museum in the panhandle of Texas

My sister Fay is quite the artist also, her medium is a canvas instead of wood. For information and availability contact Fay Kelley by email at faykelley@tampabay.rr.com

Fay

Fay is shown in her Florida home studio. I see to the right of the picture there is one of her granddaughter's paintings.....ummm, another budding artist. Below is a sampling of Fay's artwork but there is so much more on her new web page. Her work will soon be included with other fine artist as she begins submitting her works in competitions. I am so proud of my siblings, brother Tom is very talented also but his craft is engineering, can not draw a straight line but sure could engineer one!

Fay was awarded a "Diploma of Excellence" by Petru Russu of the Art Addicition Online Gallery at the International Annual of Miniature Art 2014-2015 . http://www.artaddiction.net/Mniature7/Frances-Fay-Kelley/Kelley.htm . As a result Fay was invited to participate in the Museum, Artist Showcace, and appeared in their new deluxe, limited run collectors' edition book for contemporary artists, collectors, museums, galleries and bookstores

In 2018 Fay was chosen to illustrate "Thousands of Never Ending Stories" an children's book by Sylvia Palmer which was sold as a fund raiser by many charities including Reading Pals, Children's Movement, United Way and others.

Below is a sampling of Fay's art work

 

Fay has just begun entering art exhibitions in her new state of Florida as she is retired and has more time to devote to painting. The Redwings won "Diploma of Merit" at the Contemporary Fine Art International, Canyon Sunrise honorable mention in the juried Summer call to artist on line.

This Fall she will begin exhibiting in shows in earnest.

 

 

I love Fay's landscapes. She painted the above scene from photos of our trip to the Canyonlands of Utah....so many great memories. Right is Rock Creek park scene

Right is a portrait of Fay's grandaughter Sophie. It is perfect! You can see the pretty redhead she is and it catches the little bit of the imp that lies beneath the surface.

Fay and Phil are now retired and living in Florida so I am thinking of becoming a "snowbird" too. Sure miss my sister!

May 2, 2017 The painting far right was done by Sophie this week and she is seven years old! Shows a lot of talent and imagination

 

Below is a sampling of Fay's work showing how she can go from traditional to abstract with ease. Very talented lady!
