Art Is Important

Art has the power to change lives. I know, I’ve experienced it. Art helped me through tough times. It helped me stay on the right path in high school.
It gave me inspiration and hope.
I know now that art was a great gift of Gods mercy to me.
So, if you were to ask me if art is important, I would respond with a resounding yes!

Behind a Little House Project

ImageBehind a Little House Project  is an awesome project by Italian photographer, Manuel Cosentino. Manuel “found an unsuspecting muse: a tiny nondescript house on an unexceptional hill. He returned to photograph the small building from the exact same location for nearly two years in order to capture the dramatic changes in weather and light that utterly changed the scenery just beyond the horizon.”

From Part one:

I mentioned in the previous post that I am moving, and as that is on my mind, I wanted to bring you all some artwork that has to do with houses. Moving isn’t really fun, or easy, but looking at this work is. I found so many options, that we will have two showings, or open houses if you will. I hope, as usual, that these are inspiring, and I encourage you to take a look at the full portfolios of these artists.

For this installment, I have artists that are brand new to me, and as usual, I am here to share them with you. Today we start with Mrs James Ward Thorne, or Narcissa Ward Thorne as she was also known. Actually, no, let’s actually start with an image of her work.
