In the Works
The eye should learn to listen before it looks. ― Robert Frank 🌿 Black and white teaches the beauty of seeing. The art before you is simple. While one sees the absence of color, I see the presence of all the colors. My hope as an artist is for you to sense the beautiful. To connect you with nature while bringing awareness to the simple beauties. 🌿 What bits of nature sing out most to you?

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. —John Muir 🍄 A collaboration. Two artists. Aunt and Niece. What a treat to have your aunt to chatter with and inspire while creating illustrations of bits of nature. We hope you will enjoy your calendar in the upcoming year as your discover an intriguing world of mushrooms. ______________________________ Music: Dear Autumn Musician: @iksonofficial
[ s o l d ] Finally … the finished piece! You’ve been watching this piece come to life since September. What do you think? Shall I create more mushroom pieces inspired by walks in the woods? . . . . . . Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. —George Eliot . I appreciate the lessons that are woven into each piece of art. Each piece impacting their viewer in a different way. Each artist learning something about themself or about life through the act of creating. Ah, such beauty! I look at this piece and feel the reminder to look for the small things. To appreciate the small things. A reminder that the collecting of small moments can lead to something larger.
Art is always needed. Never enough art in the world. Can you imagine if no art was created moving forward? Art is for each person to experience and get their own feelings from it. NO right or wrong. Art can simply be to enjoy. Art can be to educate. Art can just be beauty. Art can make you sad, happy, disgusted, angry, question, live, want more... Art is so much. Art is just not understood by many. Thats ok. —Lori Svikel ___________________________ Discussing art is so beautiful. Sharing passion with other creatives so encouraging. I love being an artist. So thankful for a lovely community where bonding over shared passions is possible. Whether you are a creative or an admirer, how does this thought make you feel… Can you imagine if no art was created moving forward? ____________________ PC: Maria Davey Photography
Two passions 🌿 Art & house plants. I had no idea that I’d fall in love with house plants. Or I could even keep them alive. (Well, most of them….) All my plants thrive with the morning sun, and I think they grow faster when I callout in delight when a new leaf comes. House plants are rich in benefits. My favorite being the peace they continue to bring to my creative corner. This lovely drawing was inspired by two passions splashed together. What are two of your passions? Could you splash them together? 🌿 Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you. —Oprah Winfrey ___________________________________ I hope you’ve enjoyed watching this piece come to life over October. If you missed them, visit my highlights. Lovely friend, I wish you a beautiful weekend. 💗
