Muses' Call   

Another unseen power that can move us to wondrous heights ~is a calling to create. The Call of the Muses are "heard" by many artists, as some call this a form of divine inspiration.

“Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.” ~ Camille Pissarro

Art

To realize beauty and inspiration in the natural world can cause our hearts to soar! Capturing this on film or in oils or in charcoals, etc. enables us to share some of that feeling with others.

"Art and Love are man's greatest gifts to himself, and there can be no art without love." David Hawkins

  

Bruce Lippincott, photographer - see more at www.brucelippincott.com

This  photographer from Connecticut has recorded images often thought to be oils- also artists have stated that they wished they had his sense of composition.  We are given moments when the spell of nature just seems to pull us to where we need to be. Bruce explains this "magic moment" that resulted the image shown here.

 

                    "It was an attempt to get to the Maine coast in winter for some photos of the snowy coastline. That year there was no snow on the coast! After a while it seemed that only thing to do was have some fun and just take some "snapshots". The seagulls were flying and the sunshine on the water was sparkling. I followed the bird along to where the composition was "right". It wasn't till the small photographic prints were in hand that I saw the "rainbow". A lens flare is what it actually is- colors on the film, not even seen when capturing the image. Caused by the sun hitting the camera lens, this "divine accident" as we now call it, has shown us that there's colors we we may not be aware of,  and unseen beauty may be reveled at any time."    Bruce Lippincott

Paul Pitt was a wonderful folk artist from Bloomfield, CT. His works are very interesting and be sure to look for the whimsical details. Paul passed into spirit May, 2012. Read more about his life and works here.

  

"In looking through the drawings that I have done over the years from those that I have scanned for the computer -, I found this campsite image from just about 5 years ago.

The strange thing with strong nature energy is the way the remembrance of those times, sitting there, drawing, actually the very energy of those moments seems so real, so vivid, it could be right now!  [although not with black flies!] The smell of the trees, the call of the ravens, -I'm transported in time and place!" Rebecca Gurland

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

Moonlight’s so bright
Beaming in
around the shades.
Light from the night
Spilling in.
