The same dilemma

In my dream

I saw a hummingbird

Standing between two roses.

 

First, I thought he was there just taking

A break, but then I realized he was there because

He could not make up his mind as both roses were equally beautiful.

 

Then, I saw the

Hummingbird flying fast away

So he could have time to make up his mind.

 

I woke up thinking

About my past and I realized once

I had the same dilemma and  I flew away too.

 

Nice dream,

Same dilemma, same

Response-To fly away not to hurt a love one.

A wonderful day

 

I got up early

In the morning…

I saw the mountain

Kissing the sun…

 

After my siesta

This afternoon…

I saw the clouds

Playing with the wind…

 

This evening

During my patio dinner….

I saw Peak

Staring at the moon…

 

Late tonight

With my window opened…

I plan to fall asleep

Counting wishing stars…

 

Today

I feel okay…

A wonderful day

I am happy to say…

What a wonderful thing!

 

I saw her coming

And I thought…

If there is paradise

It must be like her.

 

I saw her at the eatery

And I thought…

If there is something delicious in life to taste

It must be her.

 

I saw her in my dream

And I thought…

If there is a surprise without owner

It has to be her.

 

Again, I saw her coming

I walked towards her

I saw her smiling

Oh what a wonderful thing!

Man Puts His iPhone Inside A Guitar and Begins To Play.

This guy had an awesome idea, he took his iPhone and put it inside his guitar, turned on the camera, and started to play. He wanted to get a good look at what the strings look like when they are played. What is captured is mesmerizing. You can almost see the music being played visually. It’s very cool when people mix traditional instruments with new technology. Make sure you watch the strings.

There’s actually more to it than just dropping your phone in the guitar.
The effect seen in the video is called rolling shutter. Reminiscent of a strobe light, the rolling shutter effect does not capture all elements of an image at exactly the same time, but portrays each frame in its entirety during playback.

Patricia Awapara Art

Featured Artist: Patricia Awapara

Notes from the Artist:
My story begun around forty years ago, in a far, far away land… ok, not so far, just 5,000 miles, in a city called Lima -Peru. Known for their delicious dishes like “Ceviche” and “Lomo Saltado”. And recently “Machu-Picchu” was declared one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Anyway, getting back to my story… after 16 years of Peruvian Ceviche, my parents moved us (my three sisters and me) to the US. Change is always difficult, but we adjusted quickly. Through the years, life happened, and art became a long forgotten passion. I didn’t get married or had kids, but I had to pay bills and had to have fun, which i did plenty, so I m not complaining. It wasn’t until my thirties that I got a chance to take an art class. It had been years since I was surrounded by art supplies, so at the store, I got an adrenaline rush!. After that, I took a few more classes, won a few awards, and got hooked to creating new pieces. The strange thing was that it took me 10 years to gather focus, discipline and the courage needed to follow my dreams. Now, here I am! finally quit my day job to do what i love. I am painting, growing as an artist and enjoying the process. It is a humbling experience.

“THE BUSTER” by Skye Elizabeth Wieland

“THE BUSTER”
TheBuster

Notes:
The Buster painting was a commission work that combines appropriation with the portrait of the clients own cat. The appropriation was from the painting depicted in the Television series “Seinfeld” of The Kramer, but adding the cats head. At the time, I thought the cat was called “Buster”, but later discovered that he was in fact called “Buddy”… by this time however, the name “The Buster” had really stuck, and so I decided to leave it as that.

If you liked my painting of The Buster, please don’t hesitate to visit my online store at RedBubble.com to purchase prints, clothing or other apparel with this design.

The Buster was painted in oils on canvas in 2014.
The creation of this painting can be viewed on my Speed Painting video on YouTube

Dicky Stone – Wood Carver


Post Provided by: country-cooperative.com

Featured Artist: Dicky Stone

Through most of my adult life trees and wood have played a part in what I do. My paternal grandfather started the process by teaching me furniture repair and refinishing at the age of ten. This was not something I enjoyed at the time, but in retrospect, it was the beginning of a lifelong journey learning, exploring, working, and loving wood.

All of the wood I use is indigenous to the United States, in most cases local. In no cases do I use endangered, tropical hardwoods or do I intentionally cut down a tree just to have wood. Much of what I use is brought to my by friends. Because of the “local” nature of my raw material, I know something of the history of every piece of wood I work. In most cases I know where the tree lived, what human beings were or are connected to it, at least something of its life, often far too much about its death, and lastly how old it was when it died.
