Oct.2nd “Real Silk to Metal”

“Not Always Together”

"No one before him had integrated materials in sculpture, specifically silk and metal. But after years of studying, drawing, and painting with his eyes failing, Edgar Degas turned from seeing with his eyes to seeing with his mind and creating with his fingers. His gift of capturing movement came to life in real dances of his metal ballerinas. He never married and at the end of his life he was alone and almost blind.

Life moves and changes and nothing stays the same. The earth and the world around us cry out with the knowledge that time is moving to an ultimate conclusion. Some of us fight the fight of being people who are not of this kingdom. Many of us fail. Many have thrown their principles and beliefs away to be satisfied with momentary, earthly pleasures and false security.

Works likes Degas’s “Young Dancer of Fourteen” can invigorate and awe us by what he had captured and what he shared. As our thoughts travel within us we must move to answering where are we going and what will become of us?

I pray you’ll find the answer that passes all understanding and you will act upon it!”

“Real fabric on metal changed the artist work complete
Staring at the beauty of His work brings us to our feet
The heavens and the earth all witness to His hand
What have you done with your life as a woman or a man
Have you stopped to see Him real and invite Him to stay
Life is ever passing; don’t let the opportunity get away!”

“Paintings evoke personal emotions and involvement which add volumes to our lives. Find one that reminds you how fleeting this world is. Have a great week.”

"Find my paintings, or may my paint-tings find you!"
