My featured Art Print this week is “Southern Colonial Home” done in black and white from my Black and White Sketches Gallery.
I love the architecture of old southern homes, the intricate lines and shapes. What better way to accent those elements than a sketching technique that focuses on those features. I worked to make sure that there was almost an overload of detail in this print. I wanted the final product to not just be a representation of the elegance of southern colonial architecture, but to pull out the intricacies of this style and the setting itself. Notice the detail in the leaves and the plants that dominate the front yard of this southern belle. This particular scene is from New Orleans, Louisiana. The house is located on a tree-lined street that faces a boulevard. The street has large classic southern mansions lining both sides…

Dear Joyce, we both had quite a year me with my pheumonia and heart attack and both healed through art.

I am honored by the invitation to be a guest speaker on Today’s Visions Talking Art, and excited to share my story on the Healing Powers of Art.
On October 8th, 2011, I suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm; to make a very long story short I will not go into detail, but just say that while laying in ICU I found that I was getting frustrated, noise of any kind bothered me, as did lights and even people. In an effort to find some relief from the stress that I could feel beginning to build, I picked up the tv control and started browsing through channels. Probably a hundred or more channels into this I came across one that was displaying beautiful artwork. Each image filled the entire screen and was displayed for approximately 5-7 seconds and then on…

Beautiful ..Love the Native American Culture

Mixed Media Painting/Collage
Sometimes we forget about the original Americans. There is much talk today about immigrants in the United States. As if, we are somehow “pure” to this continent. Most of us came here as a result of families that immigrated from other countries. I have Italian and Irish mixed into my genes. But my great grandmother was one of the originals. Full-blooded Cherokee. So I am a mix of here and there. A true American spirit…

Since 2004, WordPress has set out with an ambitious goal in mind — to democratize publishing and put state-of-the-art tools in front of publishers both large and small across the planet. We believe strongly in this vision because when more people have access to powerful tools on the web, that in-turn empowers them to do great things and publish amazing content. We feel the same way when it comes to democratizing, well, democracy — and in just a few weeks, citizens across the United States will have a unique opportunity to flex their political muscle and vote in the 2014 Midterm Elections.
For our part, we want to provide our US-based users a set of resources to help them make a smart, informed decision when it comes to who they will vote for. We also want to provide a toolkit so that they can get more information on where to…

The amazing ‘Factory’, Sant Just Desvern, Spain by architect Ricardo Bofill.
In 1973 Ricardo Bofill found a disused cement factory, an industrial complex from the turn of the century consisting of over 30 silos, subterranean galleries and huge machine rooms, and he decided to transform it into the head office of Taller de Arquitectura. Remodelling work lasted two years. The factory, abandoned and partially in ruins, was a compendium of surrealist elements: stairs that climbed up to nowhere, mighty reinforced concrete structures that sustained nothing, pieces of iron hanging in the air, huge empty spaces filled nonetheless with magic.

“…under all the parade of human effort and noise, today is like yesterday, and tomorrow will be like today; that existence is a wheel of recurring patterns from which no one escapes; that all anybody does in this life is live for a while and then die for good, without finding out much; and that therefore the idea is to take things easy and enjoy the passing time under the sun…”
Herman Wouk, Don’t Stop the Carnival
The sameness, the bland acceptance would be mind numbing. Perhaps it’s the mental state to enter into, in order to endure. But, the craziness of life, of discoveries, falling in love, adventures toward the unknown, the mind alert and creative does not, cannot, abide by such cynicism. We must see ourselves as vital, alive and seeking something beyond the self imposed walls of sameness. Don’t you think……..?

Ezekiel 34:11-12 (KJV) “For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I even I will both search my sheep, and seek them out, as a shepherd seek out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day”.
Many of us inhabit or live in places which are surrounded by pain or trauma and it isn’t our fault or that we go looking for such situations, sometimes our eyes are blocked to the actual reason behind the affliction so the treatment we are receiving doesn’t match up to the ailment.
But there is a great promise from God when He allowed His son to die on the cross and shed His blood for all the ailments…

Did you know that the majority of the entire earth is suffering from the worst possible sickness ever? A most catastrophic world-wide epidemic? No, it’s not global warming, no it’s not economic nor political chaos, no it’s not a disease such as Ebola, Cancer, or Aids. It is not even violence, war, nor hatred.
Nonetheless, humanity has a malignant tumor. Somehow, for some unknown reason, the human beings of human-ity have forgotten who they are. That’s correct. The sickness that is the real cause of all of the above is a disease I call “IDENTITALLY ILL”. It’s a true identity crisis. We have lost touch with the fact that humanity is not two, it is not ten, it is not five million nor even eight billion.
Humanity is one.
Much like the body is made up of billions of molecules, humanity consists of billions of humans. And…

Throw pillows or couch pillows have been used by home interior designers to differ your mood from rooms to rooms.
Standard squares (18×18 inches) nest neatly on sofas with typical dimensions. Oversize pillows (24×24 inches) create a more casual, loungey feel. If you have a modern sofa with a very low back, consider 16×16 inches.
A feather-and-down fill has more squish, and it’s also the priciest. Foam and other synthetic fills are stiffer. They hold their shape but look less lush.
In design, odd numbers tend to be more artful. Try one, three, or five, depending on the size of your furniture and the look you want (one for a chair, three or five for a standard 88-inch…

Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there–on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
