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!

Tumblr and Google Plus, Ink!

Tumblr is a blogging platform and social sharing site that is very easy to use. 

Google Plus is a social network that is taking some getting used to but once you get the knack it can be lots of fun.

Tumblr knows that Google Plus communities have great potential so there is a Tumblr G+ community. This is an indirect route that is being taken to introduce others to an artist based in the Ukraine named Igor Amazonenco. He does ink portraits and his artwork is amazing!

Relive poignant, defining or memorable moments of 2014 via Twitter and Tumblr

For me 2014 has been a fabulous year.  Received and eMail today to Relive poignant, defining or memorable moments of 2014 via Twitter. Selected these two moments and specific tweets IN MEMORY OF people I admired and appreciated who left us this year. Searched Tumblr to see if there were any artistic expressions which captured their light, their personality, their life!  What an inspiration!
