Love

 

The simple reason

I would quite happily give

Up everything-Love.

BREXIT

Suddenly the whole
European union is
in deep shock-BREXIT.

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.

Notes from the Artist:
Hi, I am Della Daughtry, and I am the artist of Dream Damsel Art. I am from Webster Florida USA and I specialize in Big Eye Art. I Started my artistic career in 1999 as a ceramic artist but switched to acrylic on canvas in December 2010. I have no formal training in art. I have learned most of my technique by trial and error. As a child I developed a huge interest of the big eye art of Margaret Keane, which led to my current love of the big eye art genre! I have won first place for six consecutive years 2001-2006 followed by back to back best of show in 2007-2008 here locally in Sumter County Florida for my ceramic pieces. I have had 10 of my paintings included in a group gallery show in Des Moines, Iowa in 2012. Currently 56 of my paintings have been bought and are part of private collections across the United States.

Notes from the Artist:
I grew up in an artistic atmosphere where my mother loved collecting paintings and crafted decors and my father was fond of creative writings. As a child, I joined many painting and craft classes and acquired knowledge about various mediums and the magic of colors. Growing up, I realized I was looking at everything with the aspect of colors. I used to paint something with black or blue when stressed and something bright when in a good mood. During my secondary education, I became sure about my capabilities to create my thoughts into art pieces.

Colors relate respectively to the body, the mind, the emotions and the essential balance between these three. I often use bright and bold colors in my paintings, usually in abstract or pop art style. I play around with colors in everything I do whether its picking out my clothes, makeup and accessories. Working as an artist, whenever I get a chance, I do indulge myself in creative writing. Writing poems, articles and some short stories takes me away from my hustling life.

I have always been fascinated by the pieces of art I observe around the world. As a child, I would always try them on my drawing sheet getting back home. Though the drawing sheets have been replaced by canvases but the fascination still persists. I love to try and experiment with different forms and styles of paintings. In my daily course, I make sure to sneak out moments to smell and play with the paints and spend hours engrossed in making paintings. They are like food to my soul. I’m not a traditional artist. Freedom of expression through colors, gives me inspiration to showcase my subconscious level through modern abstract art.

I have so far worked with oil paints, poster colors, enamel paints, acrylic paints and pencils; enjoying specifically painting with oil colors. I believe “I’m enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination!

UK Plein Air Painting


Featured Artist: Antony Bridge

Antony J. Bridge was born in 1980. He is a self taught artist based in the centre of the UK. Growing up in Malvern in an area of outstanding beauty, he began to understand the peace, power and solitude of the landscape and has been inspired ever since. Antony doesn’t just paint just good light scenes like many artists do, he just gets out there in all weathers, rainy, grey, bright, misty and finds a location inspiring to paint, sets up either his french easel or pochade box and gets to work with his oil paints.
Antony’s work is now praised, and collected, by many prominent art enthusiasts from all around the world from Monaco, South Africa, New York, New Zealand.

He has/is represented and showed by various major art galleries, a few are listed below.

• John Noott Modern, Broadway
• Bath Prize 2010
• Royal Western Academy
• Greenstage Gallery, Fromes Hill
• The Great Atlantic Gallery, Monmouth
• Malvern Theatres
• The Cowleigh Gallery, Malvern
• The Gallery at Bevere, Worcester
• The Foal Yard Gallery

Plein air painting allows Antony to combine his two main passions for art and nature. He can’t think of a better way to spend a day than being out amongst the elements, trying to capture that special “something” about a place or time. Throughout his years of painting so far the thing he has learnt the most is; “it’s not learning how to paint, it’s learning how to see”.
His biggest influences would be the French Impressionists, particularly Claude Monet, Cezanne, Manet and also Sargent for his use of oils. Contemporary artists he admires include Neil Pinkett, Trevor Chamberlain, Jian Wang among others.

Notes from the Artist:
The human condition remains part and parcel of who I am and what I and my work speaks off. I was born in Armagh city in The north of Ireland. The city of Saints and Scholars. A place steeped in both history and violence. This held an impact that still permeates. As I still deal with ghosts that have shadowed me across an ocean.
Coping with these mental remnants visually has been painful. But among those acrylics and charcoals lay an unknown exorcism. Only do I feel mature aesthetically and mentally capable of letting these form their own conclusions via canvas.
Through childhood all the way up to graduating in fine and applied arts at from the University Of Ulster in Belfast , painting in all it’s facets has been like a second skin for me. I live and breathe my work.
In pursuit of visualizing my own version of the American dream I chose to pursue my work both academically and artistically here on the East Coast. Opening myself and my work up to an entirely new audience. This has led to a multitude of changes within my paintings. Yet always there remains the undeniable continuity that is my work.
As I grow and mature my work steps alongside me. Leaving in it’s wake new openings and my growing awareness of what it constitutes to be a painter.

New York City streets

Alive
Burning
Kissing the senses
Singing through pavement
Every corner unfolding
A theatrical stage
People in motion
Life in the raw
Heart beating pulse
Center of the universe
Heated core
Human aggression cylinders
Steeped in creativity
Artistic fire
Blazing media banners
Ringing cell phones
Ipod stuffed ears
Distracted window shoppers
Vertically gazing heads
Architectural magnificence
Walk faster
Jump sidewalk lanes
Maniacal saxophone sounds
Camera shutters snapping
Mind racing
Sensory overload
Go Go Go!!!

When do we stop?
Where do we stop?
How do we stop?
Why should we stop?

Mother Earth keeps turning
