Limoges le marché – The Market at Limoges depicts a marketplace in the French town of Limoges.
Sara Gravante, The Morning Market, Acrylic on Canvas, 16 x 16
The music held a lot of energy and movement for me through the cascade of notes that are represented by the strings of flags. Knowing it had been written initially about a market was very clearly felt through the music.
Shelby Grebbin, Heartbeat of Hooves, Acrylic, 12 x 36
I liked listening to The Old Castle because of the single, continuous note that seemed to permeate through the entire piece like a heartbeat. It made me think of beautiful wild horses, and how their heartbeats increase as their hooves move forward. I had this vision in my mind of a city skyline underneath the feet of the horses. The buildings expand as the horses move, just as civilization is constantly expanding. However, they are horses running into space, or the unknown. The heartbeats of the horses and the skyline that parallels them could continue on into eternity or cease to exist at any time.
Sirarpi Heghinian-Walzer, Dialogue with Nature II, Mixed Media on Burlap, 32 x 40
In Dialogue with Nature I am engaged in creating a visual recording of life cycles. My works of art are alive and decaying, colorful and dark, alluring and foreboding, attractive and repellent. In my choices of material, I create a tactile mark that gives expression to feelings about the dualities of life.
