Threads

Each of us follows, hangs by, spins with, threads.

Throughout my life animals and people have been interwoven like a tight basket. Sometimes, if we are fortunate, life brings us to a place where events consume us.  It can be a new job, a new retirement, a new relationship, a newly honed or polished skill, a new medium.  A veneer of tarnish is stripped away and we find ourselves exalting every moment in a world filled with wondrous possibilities.

Thatís me, as in all of the above.

Welcome to my world, shared with animals and grounded in stone. Animals have marked the signposts of my history: the bluebird which lit near me when riding alone, looking me in the eye; the mare screaming in anguish for a stillborn foal. And every dog I have loved, which is every dog. Some of the animals are fantastic.  All show their particular whimsy, and with it, their awareness and intuitive sensitivity.

Inspired by the beautiful white limestone rocks found under foot and used in buildings throughout the Texas Hill Country, Georgiana Chenault is exploring the possibilities of painting on stone, especially on stones containing fossils of animals that lived long ago.  We think you'll agree that the results are striking -- an organic blend of animal and mineral spirits, with echoes from our cave-dwelling past.

Georgiana, who now calls the Texas Hill Country her home, was born in Mississippi and has lived around farm animals most of her life, spending several years raising Arabian horses near Hot Springs, Arkansas.  Riding with the International Arabian Cutting Horse Association, Georgiana earned rookie-of-the-year honors for 1993 and was the number three Non-Pro rider on GSA Roayal Mirage+/ . Among the horses she has bred are an Arkansas Futurity Filly winner and a National Reserve Champion Maturity Cutting Horse.

Georgiana graduated from high school in Alaska, holds a bachelors degree from the University of Colorado and a Ph.D. from Texas A&M.  She has taught in Chile, California, Mississippi, Arkansas and Texas.  Proficient in drawing with chalk even as a child, she did not take up oil painting until the spring of 2012, when suddenly the animals she knew and loved sprang to life, first on canvas, and now grounded on stone.

Georgiana's stone images are typically eighteen inches square, are one-half inch thick and weigh approximately thirteen pounds.  They may be framed, displayed on easels or hung without frames using a suspension system glued to the back of the stones.
