I am very honoured to be nominated by ‘Footprints in the Sand’ – for this award. – http://esengasvoice.wordpress.com
This is Part 2. Please be sure to read Part 1 for a full introductory explanation.
A Great Reader is: one who prefers the company of books to TV – “I must say I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.” — Groucho Marx
My order of nominations is random and no priority is suggested in terms of numbering. Today I am posting my second five nominees:
Terry is a digital artist extraordinaire and and his writing beautifully emphasizes this passion and his creative view of life. His painterly digital transformations and photographs are often interwoven with music – always an artistic treat.
Gregory explores the psychology, science and philosophy behind visual art, including his own wonderful work. His written explorations are wide, deep and totally fascinating.
Mari is a poet par excellence. Her writings are surreal, emotional, heart moving and burningly honest. Traveling through her work and unraveling her words is always a trans-formative experience. She writes: “The role of an artist is not to find solutions but to compel us to love life in all its countless inexhaustible manifestations”.
Chrissy’s blog contains her own art and beautiful writings about books that have inspired her, especially children’s literature of magic and wisdom. She also explores and shares authors who write about life’s spiritual and philosophical questions.
John is an accomplished print maker from the north west of England. His excellent writings about art are deep, thought provoking and perceptive and his blog’s title has to be my all-time favorite.
