This week’s challenge “Forward” provides the perfect opportunity to post a preview of my upcoming book of digital art. This will be my second book I have published featuring digital art. The previous book, a small squared volume, featured abstract and surreal work. This second book will be a large 12″ x 12″ book of landscapes and abstract work. I am excited to feature my most recent work in this volume. I anticipate the book to be about 150 pages and will be published at Blurb Publishing. For the weekly challenge I am previewing the front and back cover.
The idea of blowing a kiss is a thoughtful way of extending the beauty of love. In this photograph my two granddaughters, Mac-attack and Butterscotch, and my daughter Lady show their love with a bit fun.
For this room with a view, I thought a little abstract texture would hit the mark. This is the window in my bedroom.
There is a path that will take you home, and when you arrive, it is a lovely thing to find art everywhere. This digitally remixed photograph is hanging in my bedroom. The piece is entitled “The Empty Space”.
For me, the Louvre in Paris, France definitely spells unique. Here is the original photo I took in 1990 with some up to date remixes to give it some color. The museum itself is a unique and wonderful place to visit. Here, the newly designed pyramid, that is also the entrance to the museum, is under construction. It provides a distinctive and contemporary look to the historical structure of the museum. A must visit for anyone looking for that certain unique experience.
Keep the world spinning, do yoga, meditate, be conscious, live compassionately, and give LOVE …
Here is a link to an older post from June 2011. In 1997 friends and I spent a week in Barbados. It was during the Sugar Crop Over Festival. A weekend long celebration, that in of itself represented Love. I will post this part of the challenge later.
But for this post, I am focusing on Love as a ceremony. A going away celebration of a loved one.
In creating this series entitled Impressions In Barbados, I was interested in mimicking the style of the impressionistic painters. Hence the title. I hope you will enjoy my look at Love.
I thought I would lighten up things a bit and post: Beyond | Cats and Dogs … Featuring from foreground to background … Thai-G, Lucy, Angel, and Little Baby. There is one other cat in the home not pictured, named Black and White.
Sometimes going “Beyond” is a reflection of who we are, and what we can discover about ourselves, when we take that important step inward to our quiet, inner, space.
The Horizon. A view just beyond. We follow it to our dreams and aspirations. It gives us a place of peace. And projects meaning into our lives.
