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
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
Ron 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
Siobhan. Sometimes beauty combines with a powerful draw to sweeten the world and the lives of others; such is Siobhan’s silks and her belief in empowerment. Please click here to learn more. http://siobhansilks.com/empowerment/index.html
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
The Carmel Valley Art Association My home town Gallery is filled with the works of many talented people. People I call friends. If you’re in this neck of the woods, you should plan on a visit. We’re worth it. http://carmelvalleyartassociation.org
