MusicAll music/arts that awaken:-“ART, if it be anything, must be a quest of the spirit a quest which is conducted through the practice of producing outer visible manifestations of inner, invisible realizations. It is a magic instrument for sensing the qualities of life - those qualities which lie outside the realm of proof and precise measurement. Here is its very virtue, and its great importance in an age like ours with its scientific stance and its materialistic viewpoints.Please visit ”http://www.soulscapes.org.uk/ and http://www.innerjourneyofthesoul.com/

Hello Ron, Just stopping in again. I see I haven't been by for awhile. I enjoyed viewing your work again. Keep creating. ~Marianne


hiii very nice painting....let me see u.mutaz


"ANGEL HAVING FUN WHEN GOD POPPED OUT FOR FIVE MINUTES" is very funny. I got a good laugh from an angel with a hole in it's sock too. I like your sense of humor, all your angel paintings are just beautiful. I have angels in my collection too. I've always been interested in past life regression. A good friend of mine does this for people too but I have a hard time being hypnotized, must be a control issue. Keep in touch.


"The Doorway" is breathtaking.

Hello Rjja, I've entered through the portal and enjoyed my stay. "FAIRY LANDSCAPE 3", "GOOD KARMA CORDS", "THE DOORWAY" and "ANTIQUE DEALERS AT SOTHEBY'S" are my favorites.


Hello, Ron, I hope this finds you well and doing fine. I would appreciate your viewing my new gallery on my profile 'All Hands' it contains 26 designs and I would love to hear your comments. Thank you and best wishes, Robbie.


Did you hear, someone paid me $40.00 bucks to remove 40 gross pictures. No more Animals!


Our techniques are quite different, but there is a uniting influence between us. My event occurred in 1969. Please visit my galleries and let us communicate further. Best regards, Robbie.


RjjA- Your art is FULL of creative energy and archetype symbols that can help awaken the mind & spirit of ALL who pass through your portal. If they look at your art as I have,with an open mind's eye, it will help to transform their lives.


I with pleasure have got acquainted with your creativity. I shall be glad to show you my ENAMEL MOSAIC and to receive your response. Andrey
