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.

One of the benefits of traveling and exploring is finding new artists! This past fall, we traveled to the Michigan Renaissance Fair.

There is something about art - good art - that calls to us. When I see a landscape that is particularly well done, I feel like I was there - catching the mood, basking in the sunset. One of my very favorite artists is one I've just discovered, Mark McCrum. His watercolors are just incredible - extraordinary paintings of places around the world.
