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 →

invisible cities2 vismara

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.

two pair peter

As an unknown once said,

“True love is like a pair of socks:
you gotta have two and they’ve gotta match.”

Do you have a doppelgänger? My brother once met his in Hawaii. While on vacation, working out at the gym my brother noticed a poster with the gym manager’s name and photo on it. The gym manager had the same name as my brother! How random! So, my brother introduced himself to the manager and in that moment, the stars aligned and time suspended – cue the music.

As Julien Green once said,

“I enter the world called real as one enters a mist.”

Selina Rodriguez’s painting, Mint Mist, harkens to the dreamscape realm where images float like clouds, forming signs to heed. Through the misty sky of dreams, narratives appear, giving voice to our subconscious life. Do you get messages from your dreams? Are dreams reality and life a dream?

luminos koury

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 →

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 →

“Breathtaking, splendid, wondrous, sublime,
all those words describe you, exactly as you are.
You are a work of art! Enjoy your beauty.”

Mike Springet‘s painting, Sublime, illustrates the rainy season – when the earth cleanses and rids itself of impurities. Each year, after the rain, new growth begins and a process toward excellence unfolds. Read Full Article →
