Art—Mystery and Mastery

Monochromatic art bannerWhat does the graphic design above depict?  Snow-capped peaks, incoming waves, seeping concrete, ghostly apparitions, or my latest art venture?

 It’s art, but not by me. I happened to have a camera with me when I entered this gallery, which is fortunate or unfortunate depending on your tastes. Here’s a rendering of a tree in fog—at least that’s what I make of it. And below is a gallery of work done by the same artist. I’ve taken the liberty of applying titles, since I didn’t record any at the time of my visit.

Yes, this is a gallery showing by the grande dame artiste, Mère Nature using concrete as her canvas. She’s very prolific and well regarded. Here are a few landscapes and vignettes from her spring collection.

Graffiti on retaining wall All great art is subject to criticism, ridicule, and even defacement. However, I believe this graffiti signature is actually an accolade. As a calligrapher, I was delighted with its fluid artistry and consider it a great “art find” to share with my brother… I’m sure you can guess why.

How graced am I to reside in Mere Nature’s mansion, to share her studio, and to wander through her beautiful, enchanting gardens and galleries. I hope you enjoyed wandering with me today.   ~Jo
