The color feels as light as fog. It is as pretty as the scent of a French girl’s perfume. It has the softness of a mother’s embrace. And can only be heard when snow flurries touch the ground. The taste is of a sweet sugar cane. This lovely color, Is the color of Meadow Posies.

As an artist I am always looking for ways to grow. I have several forms of art and artistic expression that I am eager to try. Oil Painting – my go-to paint choice has always been acrylic, in the last year I’ve expanded into water colors but I still have yet to give oils a try so that’s most definitely on my list! Macrame – The beautiful wall hangings and jewelry that I’ve seen come from this wonderful craft are beautiful. I think this is a skill that will take more patience but I think it will be relaxing and…

I found this poem in a folder from my childhood. This poem speaks of how I perceived confusion as a child. Confusion is the dark gray of a stormy sky It sounds like the crying of starving children The taste is of stale crackers And the smell of a salty sea An evil curse upon a prince I see Confusion makes me feel as if the world Has turned against me I think that confusion in many ways feels the same to me today as it did to me as a child. Confusion can stem so many more emotions in…

It was a damn cold afternoon…but we were determined to get this shoot. There was an upcoming local art show at HiveArtSpace that we wanted to submit to…”Beauty in the Art of Decay”…so off we set to Ruins Park in Glen Rock where we could capture the beautiful graffiti as a background in our shoot. We found the most inspiring art work to shoot with and were set free and given a fire of creativity within ourselves with this artsy shoot. With every shot that I was able to gaze upon the sky, I was given a view of a…

Poetry is a release, An escape of words, Into the moments beyond us. Thoughts of love, Thoughts of sorrow. Poetry captures the essence, Of the world around us. Allowing our visions, To become words upon the paper. Poetry opens the cap, Of the bottle we hold locked away. April is National Poetry Month, a time for us to recognize it’s amazing existence in our world. It has served a purpose to share our stories from generation to generation. It has created a place for us to release our emotions from within ourselves. It has provided therapy to many and has…

About a year ago, I started art journaling…I found it a wonderful release of the stress that the day had brought. Since then my mind has opened and the creativity and artistic nature of my personality has unleashed so much more. Today I sketch, I paint routinely, and I dive into free drawings with my pastels when I find I’m struggling to sleep. This #artthursday I took a look back at where I started adding art back into my daily routines…this shows that when we start with just a simple step it can unleash us into many wonderful places as…

  Writers of the Future: Volume 33 I have really been enjoying my evenings cozied up with “Writers of the Future: Volume 33”, a collection of Sci-Fi & Fantasy short stories presented by L. Ron Hubbard. This book has been a wonderful introduction to some fantastic up and coming authors.  Each short story has encompassed an adventure lighting my curiosity and imagination on fire. I’ve read of a man on a shipwreck that encounters the devil, of a murder on the moon, and of a man’s mind lost to a robot. With one book I can go on many treks…

  If you are looking for a great thrilling ride and adventure, this book is for you!  – Stormy Waters: A Crime Thriller by Miron Benari Adam awakens on the beach next to an odd and mutilated body, with no memory of how he had arrived there. He runs only to be picked up by the police and is now a murder suspect but left dazed by his injuries, he can provide no explanation to clear himself or to convict himself.  Within the first few sentences, I was immediately drawn in and caught, each paragraph leaving me more and more curious of…
