‘Human Beings and their insatiable appetite. Mouth of Jaws, Tongue of Salmon, Mercury Rising, blistered façade decades old, Pocket filled Pollutants, Greed forwarn, Tales of trouble tucked in between our legs.
Politicians kiss babies all the while preaching of “Trust in We The People, I cannot tell a lie, I cannot tell a lie.” And then We plant the seeds of no good deed when We rape the innocence from our children.
Ceo’s getting wealthier And hope diminishes for those at the poverty line. Instead of kindness breeding like wildfires in the streets, We get the eyes of silence in exchange of a word or two. And a “I’ll mind your business but don’t You dare to mind Mine.”
Moses preaches of God’s Commandments…but still We build our factories on ‘Mount Sainon.’
“It is not just the blacks who were not free it is All of We, We still are not free. We are slaves of our Free Will.”

Notes from the Artist:
Linda Reichert born and raised in King and Queen, Va. I am a self taught graphite pencil artist. I’ve been drawing just a little over a year. January 2013 I treated myself to an online, beginners drawing class. I had no idea I had a gift to be able to draw.
I am a self taught graphic designer. I owned a small graphic design and personalized gift business. I have had my work printed in magazines and advertising mediums. I have won graphic design contest.
My goal is to bring realism into my art work. I desire my viewers to look into my art work and feel it’s living spirit. I hope to inspire, bring joy and curiosity.
Drawing for me is a type of meditation. I get lost in every stroke. As I progress on a drawing it seems to take on a life of its own.

Notes from the Artist:
I’m 19 years-old student from Poland. I started drawing a few years ago. I love to draw people. I believe that people’s faces are the most interesting part to show. The only thing I know about myself for sure is that I never know what to say about myself… :-)

The Pain Tears Open The Stitching, Once Again My Tears Fall Down Lethal as Acid Rain.
The Monotony in Life-lntent on The Material The Sexual Flings.
For I Am Mateless, No God can Calm Me.
No Individual but That of My King.
I long to Lye Rested for Eternity by His Side.
I live in The Knowing That Just Maybe This is A Possibility-A Laying Down Eternal by His Side.
Pen to Paper, I Tear Up This Paper, I Long for The Times Past When Life was Simpler When Love was More Purer.
A Need for The Other That was Irreplaceable.
An Unconditional Nurturing Where A Face can go Faceless A Body can go Bodiless.
Sex Provided An Escape…
And The One Whom I Am Sleeping with is not Thy Enemy.
I Want A Non-Frivolous Union.
I Want A Love That Loves back.
With No Postage Stamp of Return.
I Want A Love That I Cannot live Without.
A Love for Whom The Bells will Toll.
But, He does not Exist for Me.
The Angels Whisper Sweet Nothings for The Blessed Ones Whose Hearts are not Pining For A Love.
Pining For A Life in Pictures where Wrongs are Made Right.
Happenings Prelude Reason And When The Dust Settles; My Cowboy Rides Off into The Sunset without Me.
God Henceforth does not Exist so Therefore I Do Not

The sea never assassinates its friends

Your eyes betrayed me
Made my tears sink
In the sea
But which sea?
A sea of love
Or a sea of illusion
A sea of darkness
Or a sea of feelings
A sea walks
Or a sea flies
A sea laughs
Or a sea cries
Which sea does not appreciate tears?
How tears sink?
And they were created from the sea
The sea is friend of tears
Friend of love
Friend of feelings
Friend of the night
Even the moon
Adores the sea
Sleeps among its waves
The sea never assassinates its friends.
In the jail
Robbers are hiding
And in my heart
Lovers are hiding
And in the sea
Pearls are hiding
The sea never assassinates its friends….!

About the Artist:
Peter Adderley grew up in rural Staffordshire. He studied art at North Staffordshire Polytechnic and gained his degree from Wolverhampton Polytechnic.

Peter Adderley freelanced as an artist and card designer, but in 1990 he decided to devote himself full time to painting. In 2004 Peter’s outstanding talent won him a place in the final of the DeMontfort New Artist Competition. His prize was a publishing contract, taking his status as a professional artist onto a whole new level.

Peter Adderley now based in North Devon works from his home. He finds living close to the sea a great source of inspiration, and his quirky character pieces often include some coastal references. Peter also cites a range of influences including jazz, most particularly such larger-than-life stars as Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Courtney Pine. Like them his work is virtuosic, deceptively simple, and delightfully accessible.

Peter Adderley art, as one collector describes it, “sophisticated whimsy!”

Painting in heavy bodied acrylics on high weight water colour paper, his palette is characterised by soft browns, mochas, creams and golds, while occasional splashes of red bring the whole piece into focus.

Peter Adderley artwork is held in collections all over the world.
