Three wishes

 

When I was young

I wished for a princess one day-

Out of nowhere it came, a strong,

Beautiful lady.

 

When I was married

I wished to make my queen very happy-

Out of nowhere a love storm came

Turning sour my honey.

 

Now newly single

I wished for a princes or a queen one day-

Out of nowhere it will come for sure

And I am ready again to play.

 

Young and crazy,

Married and thoughtful,

Newly single and hopeful,

Three wishes, believe me each of them worthy.

A working love triangle

 

A beautiful rose

Once fell in love with both

A hummingbird and me at the same time.

 

Knowing that not being able to

Fly I was not a match for the hummingbird

During the day I was afraid of losing her.

 

The hummingbird knowing that

He could not be a match for me

At night was also afraid of losing her.

 

Then one day rose proposed a solution

To this situation: She would belong to hummingbird

During the day; and to me during the night and we all agreed.

 

Hummingbird,

Rose,

And me-

A nicely working love triangle.

A promise from my friends and me

I talked to the Sky

And he told me he feels

Better when there is no rain.

 

I talked to the Wind

And he told me he feels

Better when there are no mountains.

 

I talked to your heart

And he told me very loudly

He is happier when he is only with me.

 

You should expect no rain,

No mountains,

And happiness;

A promise from my friends Sky, Wind and me.

Together for ever

 

You are the moon

And I am the tallest peak

In the world blindly in love with you.

 

I am happy

Because I know I will see you

Tonight and admire your immense beauty again.

 

You are glad

Because you know I will see

You with loving eyes until the end of time.

 

Moon

And me

Together

Forever.

Featured Artist: Jessica Riddell

About the Artist:
Born in 1996 in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Jessica Riddell was introduced to art at a very young age. She started taking art classes in Kindergarten, and continued with it through Elementary school. She took art classes for two years while in middle school, and stopped her eighth grade year. She picked back up her freshman year of high school, and has currently taken up to Proficient Art III Honors. She didn’t start taking her artistic talent seriously though, until seventh grade; that’s when she noticed what potential she has.

She will be taking AP Studio Art and Advanced Art IV during her senior year of high school, next year. Her high school art career has been the most successful for her. Coming in as a freshman, she was recruited to join the National Art Honor Society. She turned down the invite though because she wanted to get used to high school and because she also wanted to play soccer when the season came around. Ryan McCredie, also known as Coach Mac, became her art teacher during her sophomore year of high school. He was also the soccer coach at her school. Mr. McCredie is the one person who has inspired her the most as an artist. “Most of the techniques I have learned, I learned in his class. If I had to chose one person that I look up to the most as an artist, I would defiantly pick Coach Mac without a doubt.” This was also the first year her school held an art auction, that she became involved in. During her Junior year, she was invited to join the National Art Honor Society again, and that’s when she became a member. She was also involved in the second annual art auction held at her school. Her artwork was involved and she was also involved with helping run the program.

Artistic talent runs in her family. Growing up, her father has always done sculpting and woodwork around her. On her mother’s side of the family, her grandfather used to draw; along with her uncle. Her grandmother and her second cousin, Paul, painted.

Brian Leverton’s Website
Brian Leverton on Facebook

Brian Leverton, born in Cornwall in 1945, showed an interest in art from an early age following his grandfather around Europe, painting & sketching until he earned a scholarship to the Redruth School of Arts. Over those 4 years, the school widened his range of media and brought depth to his experiences and understanding of the arts.

From that time he literally took the scenic route to a career in art, balancing his passion with more immediate income earners to feed his young family such as plumbing, carpentry, boat building and house painting. Fortunately these “alternate” professions sent him to unusual parts of the globe enabling his experiences of life and art to blossom.

In the mid 70’s Brian dragged his Cornwall-loving family to Australia “to see what he could see” and was almost immediately exterminated by the local wildlife. Playing with a blue-ringed octopus is generally an ill-advised past time and he spent a considerable time in hospital. Eventually Brian regained the upright position and went on to live in a variety of demographics around Australia.

Brian and his family worked hard to build up businesses and farms until a fire destroyed everything and once again they had to start their life from scratch. Several years later, fate once again knocked him flat with a heart attack and it was time for him to slow down and “paint the flowers”.

Brian is now very securely attached to life in the small Qld town of Gin Gin and is re-establishing himself as an artist. He still studies art with a view to extending his repertoire of techniques, although his main interests are landscape, portraiture and wildlife working primarily in graphites, acrylics and oils (One day he may even paint a blue ringed octopus!). Brian uses only the finest materials so that his works can be handed down through the generations and he readily takes commissions.

Bucks County Gallery Represents Robin Antar


Featured Artist: Robin Antar


The Bucks County Gallery of Fine Art, which has been around for 30 years, is going to be representing Brooklyn’s stone sculpture specialist, Robin Antar.
Ms. Antar, who has become famous for the realism that she creates out of stone, recently had her carrere boxing gloves put on display at the 97th Annual Show of Allied Artists of America at the National Arts Club in NYC. On November 28, Antar is going to be presented with the Members and Associates Award for her gloves at the National Arts Club.

Outside of the boxing gloves, Ms. Antar has created many modern sculptures that represent American culture. Those sculptures include Oreo’s, Dr. Marten’s, Diesel Jeans, M&M’s, and a Heinz Ketchup Bottle, amongst others. These sculptures can be seen all over, as they have been on display at museums, art galleries, corporate offices, and universities.

Ms. Antar’s latest feat was being chosen as a finalist in the 2011 NICHE Awards. The NICHE Awards Program, which has been going on since 1989, is a celebration of excellence and innovation in American and Canadian fine craft. The NICHE Awards have a wide variety of categories, and they will be displaying such artwork as contemporary sculptures, abstract sculptures, and representational sculptures, just to name a few. The winners will be announced at a ceremony in Philadelphia on February 18, 2011 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, held in conjunction with the Buyer’s Market of American Craft.

If you want to check out Ms. Antar’s exhibition, or any of the other fine artists’ work at Bucks County Gallery, the gallery is open daily, and it is located at 77 West Bridge Street, in New Hope, Pennsylvania. For more information call (215) 862-5272.
