Dmitry's work is like seeing the mental images of a Shaman who is channeling the ancestors & aliens from outer space all at once. His depictions, shows us forgotten memories, future predictions, & ancient stories. His artwork is unique in so many levels.


It's so beautiful it leaves you speechless.

:iconwaynebenedet: In Days Measured With Peace (0561) by WayneBenedet:iconrichardpratt: Depression by RichardPratt

These are polar opposites of each other. One makes you happy to be alive, the world is bright, full of color & life. It makes you want to soar with the clouds. It makes you feel like there are only good things waiting for you.

The other is a study of depression. The world has been bleached grey, everything is devoid of color, his pain is felt by all the living things around him. They weep for him and with him. His posture makes your want to hold him in your arms, even though every touch brings them (a person with depression) pain.

What I love about this photo is that he took a normal everything common object that we walk over and overlook on a daily basis and he showed us the ethereal beauty of it. It makes me wonder what else this picture is trying to tell us & will we be able to understand it in time.
:icontjkruse: Two trees by TJKruse
Everyone knows what a tree looks like, yet not everyone can paint one. He painted what was there PLUS endless possibilities of things that could have been or might have been visible if we had the ability to see beyond our human capabilities: like motes of light on the wings of birds or butterflies or scent of perfume carried on the motion of the wind currents. It a dream-like depiction.
:iconingeline-art: roses at rose farm 12 by ingeline-art
She captured a memory of my childhood. These "blue" roses were my mother's pride & joy. In general I am not a lover of roses, as as a child it was my job to keep them (over a hundred rose bushes) de-headed so they could produce more flowers & those things were evil their nasty thorns scratched & poked my delicate skin & make me bleed. Those burning wounds hurt for days & in my case a lifetime.
:iconaltergromit: In crowd by altergromit
"In this age of everyone trying to be the same how does one standout above the crowd?" This army of birds look the same yet there are subtle differences; some have enhanced their chest with brightly colored feathers, others stand tilted towards different angles (the clowns of the group LOL). All await in eagerness for what comes next.... will it be food, instructions, wisdom? Maybe they will all receive the same but use it differently. One never knows.

:iconampata: Stamp glunac by Ampata
The daffodils, tulips, squills & hellebores are blooming. I’ve cleaned out the flower beds and  planted bulbs/seeds & can’t wait until the fear of a late frost is over so I can plant annuals & geraniums to attract hummingbirds to my yard.  This time of year, I hate being indoors.  Hope you all had a wonderful Spring Break/Easter Holiday & are enjoying spring.

I am housewife, mother, grandmother & artist.

I am dyslexic & suffer from malapropisms so often use the wrong words.

I have been working on a book of illustrated poems, dreams & stories. Like my life, it is a Work in Progress. I learned to paint as a way to illustrate these verbal images.

Though I took painting, woodworking and clay sculpturing classes, I am mainly self-taught.
Most of my original artwork is NOT for sale.

Because my eyesight and health have been declining I was posting more photos, then paintings of late. Since early childhood, I have always taken photos at family gatherings (for family use only), those images captured our unique way of life as Migrant Farm Workers.

Because of the bot that hit my gallery I have put everything in storage:
I will NOT fave stuff I journal to "To Fave or Not to Fave"…

ESTJ - "Administrator". I am honest & very outgoing, but tend to be pragmatic and analytical, so if you are insecure, over-sensitive & tend to get upset easily, we are NOT compatible, "Friend" someone else.

On line:
I am a get to the point kind of person. In person, I talk a lot.

Art competitions should be won by the person with the best entry, not the person with the most friends. I will vote for the piece I like best, regardless of who made it.

I will NOT celebrate your BD or dA Anniversary or give you "llama's or points"!

If you know any of my personal info. keep it to yourself. Respect my Privacy

Favorite Quotes

John Epstein:
"We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parent, or the country of our birth. We do not, most of us, choose to die; nor do we choose the time and conditions of our death. But within this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we live."”

Bette Davis:
"If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent."

Mohammed Ali:
I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.
