Watercolour Reverie

Shirley Charlton ~ Australia ~ Brisbane River Watercolour

Urban worlds smeared in mists

Sails unfurled

Like a warped
Journey distilled in

Colours of the Soul

Christine Peloquin ~ (from Mount Dora, Florida) ~ Start Inside ~ acrylic, charcoal, fabric and paper collage on
four 24" x 24" wood panels

Beyond the blinds
The colours of
Her gypsy spirit
Like little banded travelling boxes
Painting and
Paisleying and
Her heartland
And if you gaze closely
You may see
The lips of a child
Like a pensive
Beauty spot

Northern Summer Reverie

Sergei Aparin - Born in Voronezh, Russia in 1961. This painting is entitled July - oil on canvas

We are three

Screening the tides of old waves
Prodding the depths of new

And one elects to be overseer

The clear one
Becalmed in still waters
The centre
The centrifugal force
Apparently there
Dependent on the competitive tensions of
Yesterday and tomorrow

Going somewhere and

We are three
But I am ONE

A Watercolour Face from Iceland

Óskar Thorarensen ~ downtown area close to the pond in Reykjavík, Iceland.

A street from iceworlds
Like an Autumnal summer
A powdery world of
Melting light

First Light

Dmitry Guskov (Moscow, Russia then Scotland in 2000) ~ Light of Creation

Remember when Light meant the innocence of purity
Remember when Beauty was simply being
Remember when Creation was like a universal spirit
Breathing stillness on discordant darkness
Remember when Creation was
The First Light

The Cat of Midnight

Dmitry Guskov (Moscow, Russia then Scotland in 2000) ~ Black Cat in a Dark Room

In the eyes of midnight
Tremble the fears of darkness
Like mist encrusted laneways
Where the voice of lone feet walking

Leonid Afremov - born in the city of Vitebsk, Belarus in 1955 - the same town where Marc Chagall was born. (Belarus became independent of Russia in 1991.) This is an oil painting created with a painting knife and called Dream.

Raining colours of light
Goring the wells of night
Flooding the fears
Lubricating vibrant pools of happiness

Once upon a butterfly...

Angel Villanueva (Mexico) ~ 1492 (2008) ~ Oil on canvas

Cocooned heartbeat
Fragile wings
Visionary sails
Transitory eternity

African Grace

Ben Agbee (from Ghana, West Africa) ~ Anticipation ~ Acrylic on canvas ~ posted on African Encounters

Ben Agbee ~ We Can Fly ~ Acrylic on canvas ~ posted on African Encounters

From a sea of syncopated petals
Explodes a need to be
A new dance for
New Graces


Midnight Butterfly

Rabi Khan's Butterfly Girl ~ Digital Art posted 10th May 2009 on Fine Art

Slow and silken
Midnight bronzed golds
Honeyed senses
Ooze into

Adventurers Artworks / Digital Art / Adventurers, digital painting
Andy Simmons ~ United Kingdom ~ 2007 ~ Adventurers

Where the seas warp
And the clouds heave
And the sails wretch the winds

My soul sings ancient songs
Songs I've never heard


Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840) - "Cloister Cemetery in the Snow" - Destroyed in 1945 in Berlin

Trees aching for sleep
Filtering white silence
Small pilgrims
