Above and beyond.

Art History, for all of it’s foibles, ups and downs, was it not really just a gift for mankind?

A medium for ideas is what a picture is, and here we can see through time our relationship with nature, the trees and rivers and mountains and clouds. Sometimes with reverence, and at times a view from a car window, removed.

Fortunate are we to realize that we could tie art with nature and use such- to create awareness to others, not to despoil the original design of the Land. For it is very difficult to restore a ruined place, so let us not first wreck it.

And so, Art historians may wonder, are these contemporaries crafting the finest paintings of history?  I say potentially, Yes!, for they form the bridge of understanding of the human mind to lesser, and greater things- leaves, river banks, wind patterns, color, texture, and a sense of care, for place.

Added, through 50% sales events- the paintings actually help to purchase the Land area for preservation.  Cutting edge!

The paintings represent a time spent, sometimes in silence and even alone, like poetry bespeaking a personal and yet ultimately, communal reverence for the campfire talks going back into time.  Thank you friends for the opportunity together to paint, share lunch, and to be.

A Poem.

FOUNDATION

We stand on the Land
Upon the layers of time
Sandwiched on Down
To the beginning of

Creation (?)

You can look on down
Through the ribs of the canyon
You can view on below
to Pre-Cambrian time

I like that.

Care for the foundation
Is the care for all, who
Stand upon the Land
Who stand upon time
Make a new creation

To honor Mankind
