BUILD BRIDGES

October 22nd, 2017

IMG_9476

I took this photo on a camp trip to Turkey Run State Park.

The reflection was so perfect I knew that it would form a future painting

(I have been here when the water was so fast that logs were being pushed under the bridge and much of the rocks areas were covered in high waters)

After some planning and re sizing to be able to add texture and

accent the eye shape that the two bridge reflections form on the totally quiet water

I have a set up with acrylic under painting  for an Oil Painting

As I worked on the sketch the following poem was penciled on to the back of the sketch paper

because that is how Art With A Voice just Happens for me.

BUILD  BETTER BRIDGES

Build  the BRIDGE

A God’s eye is watching you !

BRIDGE all Trouble

As peaceful water can flow under old bridges

TROUBLE can Calm

As God’s hand takes yours with guidance

CALM with Stones

As a life scape holds us together and foundations are formed

STONES will Build

As quiet water flows and new plants grow

BUILD your reflections

As peace nurtures life through abundance of love

REFLECT on Bridges

As old walls are broken with building mutual respect

OLD and NEW

Show us the reflected photo

of

BETTER

CONTINUOUS CONNECTIONS

NEW YEAR

January 1st, 2017

   New Year

Blue sky gives big hugs

Strong wind kisses every lip

Warming sun caresses our skin

Rain washes everything to new

Time counts down slowly

We all breathe deep

Life

            Moves

            On

                 To

                       The

                              Beat

                                  Of

                                              Joy

Canyon Four Square

December 15th, 2016

fullsizerender

 

Canyon Four Square

Four 12 x 12 paintings form one

Painted from the photos that I took on a whitewater raft trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon.

The cactus was blooming on the rock edge looking back down at the Colorado River

The sun turned the water gold many times but at this second the green and blue were gone leaving only the gold

When the Little Colorado joins the water is pure Ice Blue as it tumbles over the rocks to join the mighty Colorado

Looking down the current and rock patterns show the flowing motion  that cuts through the Grand Canyon
