You know the drill - scroll through social media sites, see what pops up. I don't really like the cat and dog photos, the gifs of people doing the same thing over and over again every half second. I look for beauty, creativity, originality. And each day, I am rewarded by artist Jennifer R. Cook.

Sometimes, an artist has such talent for looking within their subject. They specialize in seeing things others don't, and sharing a glimpse of the soul.

Sometimes you run across an artist and just love their view of the world. Such is the case with artist Alyssa Parsons. Once discovered, I couldn't get enough of her art! It's playful, with a touch of humor that you don't often see, in art. She also has a serious side, with beautiful landscapes and detailed portraits.

Art and Magic: Something I Stumbled Into in Seville, Spain and Must Share

by Dr. Debra Payne / Mar 13, 2009 /

You may have noticed I used the word stumble in my title to speak about the art studio I had the privilege of seeing yesterday. Stumble is the correct word. I am not the type who goes actively looking for art. I like it, sure, but I don’t know much about it except that when it’s in a museum, I’m supposed to like it and sometimes I do. I have never actually talked to an artist, though, until yesterday.  I met this wonderful artist in Seville, Spain, in a guitar studio one day, and she told me about an art exhibition she was having in Seville.
