Encouraging Art Engagement

Reflected Moments

Leave a comment

Moments are not just reflected within your head, sometimes if you’re quick you can photograph unexpected images created on a wall. Such is what took place with the image on the far left. A marvelous sunny day illuminated past the items on the window sill and with the presence of mind to grab my camera and shoot with one hand while interjecting my other hand into the projected image on the wall, I captured this stunning shot.

Study Of Wicket Ladies, is a play on titles, I’m bemused by. When the Camron-Stanford House on Lake Merritt in Oakland was open to visitors, I recollect in the 1980s, I took many shots of a group dressed in turn of the century victorian dress. They played croquet on the grass that surrounds the House. I remember it was the 4th of July. The atmosphere was very patriotic.

The story about the image on the bottom, is that it is an oil painting by exceptionally talented Anthony Holdsworth, with the likeness of me included with other listeners to then Mayor Dellums . When was that , oh yes! That was then.

The image to the left was offered as my answer to a call-for-art that would be printed as notecards. I was successful in receiving a favorable response as the choosen image.

There's the need to stay focused, organized and deliberate, to enhance connections, community and personal projects and remain healthy in every possible way! I enjoy framing items, painting portraits, fabricating fused glass objects, projecting a positive public persona all told, giving people the best I have to offer. Sharing my talents by tutoring youth & adults and counseling visual Artists, uplifts me as well. I very much like and reference Classic & Contemporary Arts of a multitude of cultures. Here's to self care and care for others!
