As Alfred Kreymborg once said,
“The sky is that beautiful old parchment
in which the sun and the moon keep their diary.”
Vincent’s painting illustrates the season. Often, Southern California winter mornings start with a soupy cloud layer, but as noon approaches the clouds become wisps, playing peek-a-boo with the sun. Read Full Article →
As sung by Jim Morrison,
“Are you a lucky little lady in the City of Light?
Or just another lost angel… City of Night?”
Nikki Vismara’s painting Invisible Cities 2 stirs the imagination. Mythical places like Hogsworth, Middle Earth and Atlantis come to mine as I gaze into the lacy thread work of an unseen metropolis in this painting.

As Nikola Tesla once said,
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe,
think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
Katie Gutierrez’s painting Frequencies tunes me into the collective consciousness and thought waves of fellow designers. Read Full Article →
As Eli Khamarov once said,
The best things in life are unexpected – because there were no expectations.
Aleah Koury‘s painting prompted me to ponder the unexpected.
Life doesn’t always follow a straight path. Unexpected twists and turns mix things up a bit. Although we may plan, strategize, or say the right thing, unexpected chaos often intervenes. Is it the higher spirit nudging us toward a better good, or is our inner self, subconsciously directing us? Read Full Article →
Rumi once said,
“May this marriage be full of laughter, our every day in paradise”
Justine Doyle’s painting livens up the day with a festive feel. It reminds me of palm trees swaying to ocean rhythms, and dancing the day away in a tropical paradise. Read Full Article →
As Hermes Trismegistus once said,
“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…”
Aleah Koury‘s painting brings to mind the saying, as above, so below, and the duality of nature – human, or otherwise. For example, the color red symbolize both love and hate; and navy blue represents the mysterious depth of space and sea. Read Full Article →
As John Greenleaf Whittier once said,
“Swan flocks of lilies shoreward lying,
In sweetness, not in music, dying.”
In many cultures, the water lily symbolizes love, purity and resurrection. In Bernard Weston‘s painting, the red water lily adds an element of surprise to a blue canvas pond. The red represents love, the water represents purity and the depiction of nature represents resurrection or new life. Read Full Article →
As Ken Coleman once said,
“People are most successful when they are in their sweet spot.
Your sweet spot is the intersection where your passion meets your greatest strength.”
As Charles M. Schwab once said,
“There’s no limit possible to the expansion of each one of us.
CJ Nash’s painting looks like cells expanding.
And, similar to cell expansion, the new year encourages expansion. A new network of colleagues, a new skill, a new wardrobe, a new exercise program, or a new drama series to watch – whatever it is…begin now and continue to grow. Branch out and emerge from limitations. Free yourself from the past. Extend your boundaries, as you multiply your assets. Design a new website with expanded experience. Read Full Article →
As William Godwin once said,
“The philosophy of the wisest man that ever existed,
is mainly derived from the act of introspection.”
Chrisopher Peter’s painting provokes quiet introspection as we close out the year, reflecting on the people, places and emotions that shape our souls. Both negative and positive experiences imprint memories to learn from. Life paints a unique design on our internal canvas. Through life lessons, our inner selves expand and grow like webs, connecting us to the collective consciousness, the universe and Higher Spirit.
Share the intricate designs within you. Connect with the world. May peace be with you. Namaste. Read Full Article →
