    I learned many things from my parents including a love for gardening. As I settle into a new place to live I am thinking of how to bring nature into my apartment. When I started school my parents told me that school was my full time work and my responsibility to do the best that I could. I carried that lesson with me wherever I go. I have learned the heartaches of not taking care of myself physically, spiritually or emotionally. It has been hard to out that aside, but I have started that process. I have discovered the joy and blessings of taking care of me. I have a desire to do what I can to heal myself physically, spiritually and emotionally. Now I am releasing my creativity and talents that my creator has blessed me with and seeking a better life style. I am painting with acrylics, writing, and thinking what is yet to come and added knitting just for fun. My soul enjoys every minute. In school I learned American Indians were savages. In 1995 I began to find out differently as I researched ancestors. I spent hours researching my ancestors using Ancestry.com for documentations and viewing the microfilms at the National Archives of Genealogy in Washington D.C. I have traced my Cherokees to 1741 before the Revolutionary War. King George III and the military of the British government were courting the Cherokees to fight with them. Throughout the conflict. I had to read this part of the book many times to fully understand what was being said. I often live share my knowledge and love for others. This is my reason for being here. I am now living in a place that encourages me to be active in social and creative activities yet we are supportive of each other and respectful of privacy. I am inspired to improve my abilities in writing, painting and listening to a higher level.The New Year approaching is enticing.

    An Artist Speaks Season 4 Episode 21 with Guest Artist John Jaster

    in Art

    Join host Michael Harris as he speaks with artist John Jaster.  John is a part-time painter living in the Southern California mountains. He used to do a lot of painting and drawing years ago but drifted away over time. Although his degrees are in computer science, he never stopped exercising the right side of his brain. John re-engaged with the craft of painting a few years ago when his lovely wife bought him an easel for Christmas. Each new painting he attempts brings a new learning experience.  “I paint with heavy acrylics. My paintings tend to be on large canvases with bold colors in hi-definition. One can identify themes of water, blue skies, and automobiles and Americana throughout most of my work. I describe my format as 'realistic impressions' because, although my work is definitely in the realism genera, I have splashes of impressionistic colors throughout.”

    Rambles into Sacred Realms: Journeys in Pen & Paint~


      Rambles into Sacred Realms is the beautiful and inspiring chronicle of author and artist Krish V. Krishnan's travels around the globe as he explores and portrays places of awe-inspiring divinity through writing and artwork. Krish recounts his experiences at places like the stunning rocky red desert of Petra, Jordan, replete with the ruins of shrines, palaces, and tombs; the ancient and holy city of Varanasi, India, where sacred chants waft in the breeze as funeral pyres consume the dead; and the ruins of Sukhothai, Thailand, teeming with temples, monuments, shrines, and watchful statues of Buddha as far as the eye can see. Krish's writings offer adventure, drama, and bits of humor, and his extensive collection of artwork, in watercolor, scratchboard, acrylics, pencil, and pastel, is superbly executed and captivatingly impassioned. Rambles into Sacred Realms offers a compelling invitation to the reader to vicariously enjoy and experience, through both words and images, the stunning power of some of the world's most incredible and sacred places.

    Robert Arnold - Digital Mixed Media, Photomontage & Acrylics

    in Art

    Robert Arnold is an artist in Ottawa.
    Artist's Statement
    Landscape and the placement of human figures in a landscape setting have always played a significant role in the subject matter of my art. Often these subjects derive from places that I have visited  and people that I have seen and which I then transform to create a new visual representation.
    I like to play with the stylistic elements – light, line, colour, shape and texture, often separating them and reassembling them as fragments within confined geometric spaces. In all of my works the development of  strong colour and colour combinations that work well together is a prime objective.
    Lately I have continued this interest by expanding into digital computer art images. By using scanned digital images of preparatory drawings, templates etc., as well as photographs that I have take, I am by using the computer, able to create a wide variety of new compositions. The final composition is meant to stand alone, on its own, independent of realistic representation, but true to the two-dimensional plane, as a bold visual statement that engages the viewer.
    Also, using the computer, I have been experimenting with the creation of photomontage images derived from photographs I have taken, wherein I create "reflections" of the original subjects - a new world of altered realities. While requiring  mathematical precision in their creation, the results are often whimsical, puzzling, and perhaps even disturbing.
