I knew nothing of this artist's amazing talent when I first spotted a bear surrounded by blue butterflies but I have a feeling it must have been titled Embrace I!
It is said that in Robert Bissell paintings, the world of animals is a mirror for human existence, self-definition and self-reflection. His studio's name just happens to be Dreamstudio! Perfect!
On 1 June 2013 his one man show at Borsini-Burr Galeries offered 18 new originals and I only wish I could have attended!
If you are a book lover and appreciate art, know that his book entitled 'HERO' is breathtaking! Take a moment to visit his website (HERE) to understand what I mean.

Lori Preusch offers paintings you can easily loose yourself into as you dream (and I am so good at it!) I discovered her paintings one day on the Internet and never looked back! For those of you who are regulars on this blog you probably have seen many of her paintings!
(Kindred Spirits - Lori Preusch)
…She is finding warmth, protection, security tucked into the lion… Kindred Spirits… as one."
This painting has a special meaning for me but then I like all of her artwork!
"Intelligence... a child embed with wisdom... this painting epitomizes that idea.
I like to show the wisdom filled child... capable and owning fully the depth of who they are and with an insatiable appetite for what ever their desire... be it scholarly pursuits, studying, discovery, inventing, creating...."
Quill reminds me of my daughter who loved to write poetry and has always displayed a fondness for Ravens!
Note: Mentions of both artists and gallery were not requested! Like many admirers I follow through newsletters but thought you would appreciate their talents!
