Share Human Creativity – Online Featured Article – ‘Your Materials’ – July 2020

“This is who I am” No.2 forms part of the “What matters most” series.

“This is who I am, but who do you examine? Me in authenticity or me as you imagine? I would hope you see what’s there and real. I would wish you see in me appeal, for I can only be me and me alone, with all of these flaws in flesh and bone. Take it or leave it I refuse to change, no matter how imperfect, broken or strange.”

~ Sarah Langton

A WALK IN THE CLOUDS 1

Acrylic and Ink on Canvas | 650 x 450

“We walked the mountain to the clouds

Our hands entwined with love avowed

Always when you’re next to me

Hearts in sync with harmony

Side by side we take each step

Knowing that we’re truly blessed

Just this moment side by side

Lifetime with you gift of pride

We have walked so many years

Each of us shed so many tears

Now this moment we caress

Height of all our happiness

Walking towards the clouds above

Expressing our most gentle love

Reach the top and we are there

Love we have beyond compare

I have never walked alone

You have always brought me home

In my heart where you remain

Peaceful love shall always reign.”

~ Francine Pucillo

South African Artists Newsletter Featured in ‘The Very Best of South African Art’ February 2020

Selected Work – Online Featured Artist – Your Design Juice Blog: May 2020

The work depicts the images created in our inner world, the only place where we create our “Reality”. The place which defines our lives and where our expressed identity  is packaged. “Cut” is a work from the “Hidden Feelings” series and represents the image of internal emotion of the “face” behind a colourful life “admired” for successfully participating in the so-called rat race. An expression showing the price paid, the baggage carried…

“Insurrection…”

“or just the pot boiling over,

the plant breaking through the ground,

the leaf bursting from the bud,

the wind breaking down the door.

light breaking through the darkness, 

the body breaking free of bonds.

the spirit breaking fom the body,

the truth breaking from the silence.

hope breaking from despair,

caring breaking from the calloused… the individual breaking from the crowd.

the many breaking from the few,

the man breaking from enslavement.

the pot boiling over… be careful!

you’ll burn your hand!”

~ Eric Cockrell

Gallery Ring – ‘Colours’ Exhibition: Ruby Award May 2020

https://www.galleryring.org/colour-may-2html

Some say the world will end in fire,

Some say in Ice.

From what I’ve tasted of desire

I hold with those who favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice, 

I think I know enough of hate

To know that for destruction  ice

Is also great

And would suffice.

Robert Frost
