|At long last, our film “My Wish for You”, the follow up to “A Knock at the Door” is now live! Where “A Knock at the Door” was a valentine for soul, full of passion and joy and playfulness, “My Wish for You” is a lullaby, a blanket for the soul. We live in challenging times. We must remember our inherent magic, and wrap it around us to keep the dreams warm.|
The Best of April Visual Art!Now it's time for April 2009 Visual Art Features, many new art to discover!The Best of April Visual Art! by karemelancholia
Run by karemelancholia since February 2007.
Don't forget that many artists need to be viewed, they deserve it!
Fave Fave Fave!
My main purpose in doing a monthly feature about (to my point of view) 'the best visual art' is to put in the same level as well wellknown artists and popular creations as unknown artists and under-exposed creations.
Artists need to be supported.
So don't be shy!
Visit their pages, support them by faving, commenting, and when you see a deviation that you like also view their gallery entirely, like that you can decide if you will devwatch them or not.
Viewing only a deviation (what is great) is not enough
Don't forget to view the collections linked under the titles of each category!
And if you want to see your favorite visual artists or art selected to be in this feature for the next month,
Duirwaigh Studios is home to the creative talents of husband-and-wife team Angi Sullins and Silas Toball. They, along with their menagerie of artist, writer and film-making friends, produce products and services that inspire creative consciousness.|
From tangible treasures like books, films, and gifts, to the lively inspirations of workshops, and concerts, Duirwaigh specializes in the three E's: enchantment, enlightenment, entertainment.
We believe each product and experience should transport its audience through the portal of wonder and into the limitless realm of soul, where impossible things happen every day. With creative wild abandon and imaginative play, with a belief in the infinite possibilities of the human psyche, with feet on the ground and heads in the stars, we endeavor to knock at the door of the human heart, re-minding ourselves and each other that once upon a time is really here and now.
