There are people whose art moves me.  They create beauty.  I thought I’d take the time to share a few.

Joe Messina.  His photos are spectacular.  Just when I think I’ve found the one I like, I find myself saying, “no, wait … what about this one.”  From birds to humans, they’re spectacular, just spectacular.  http://tcrworld.com 

 

 

ceres-floor-lamp--Mjk4LTUxMzI1LjE3MDYxMg==Stephanie Nichols.    A skilled sculptor who has set her sights on making the useful, beautiful. One photo cannot do her work justice.  Please go to her site to see more.  http://www.stephanienicholsstudio.com

 

 

Blk-Stone-SlideRon Rice.    Metal Wrangler.  His highly polished stones, embedded with fine silver, are works of art to wear.  His folded metal is an origami challenge.  I find myself wearing his “Angel Wing” often.  http://www.ronricemetalwrangler.com

Karen Patriquin.  While Karen doesn’t work with paper or paint or any of the other items you associate with art, make no mistake,  she is an artist.  A massage from Karen has one walking on air, and a facial seems to take years off my face. www.skinovation.org

Casey Shannon.    Sumi-e, but reaching beyond the limits of traditional ink painting.  I find her work peaceful.  Even the simple are majestic for me. Here’s a live link.  http://www.caseyshannon.com
