Artists I Fancy : Lavarne Ross

Lavarne Ross
Internationally known African-American artist.  Mr. Ross says that he was “born an artist”. His work certainly reflects that of an individual with an extraordinary talent. He makes masterful use of his paintbrush to appeal to the eye and to tell a story.



Best known for the Tribute art poster which features black African ballerina dancers in pastel. It's a lovely painting and although I am certain that it was neither his inspiration nor his intention, it makes me think of George Gershwin's 1959 film, "Porgy & Bess", the famous musical. (O.o) Go figure. The Ross paintings, however, that really captured my attention were “Black Orchids” and "Angel Wings".


Were I to describe this man's art in one word? ENCHANTING!

Harp Music: Sacred, Classical, or Jazz?

At one time there was a debate about whether or not the harp was solely a religious musical instrument. But thanks to breakthrough musicians like Jeff Majors ... 

The question mark is now a period!

Harp music will always be used as religious music, but it is no longer used only FOR religious music.  That's because  talented harpists like Jeff Majors uses his instrument to play all of the genres:  sacred, classical, jazz and gospel.

First Public Share Via My Google Plus Business Page

First post via my Google Plus business page for Cmoneyspinner's Home Business Projects.

  • Link to post shared Jun 14, 2012.

The post about Angel Mae Taylor has sentimental value for me. The first article published online that actually showed my name as the author was written about her. It's one of those "firsts" memories.  Kind of like putting your first dollar you earned from your own business in a picture frame.  Although if you're striving to eek out a living by way of the Internet like me, it's a lot more like laminating your first penny!  :)  C'est la vie!

NOTE:  AUGUST 2015, GOOGLE PLUS SUSPENDED MY BUSINESS PAGE.  REVIEW WAS REQUESTED.  FINAL DECISION (???)

 

Created another business page.  Hoping to get it right this time!  :)
