Fairfax Art League Photography Show- Fri., Apr. 1 and Sat. Apr. 2

The Fairfax Art League Photographers are sponsoring an art show this weekend. Here are a few of the photographers whose works you'll see and a bit their focus:


Don Allen “I attempt to capture the crispness of the real world or the scenes that could be; tweaking colors and content to achieve what should be.”(Images on this page were created by Don Allen. First one is "Hybiscus", Second is Sunset-Silhouette.)

Spencer Cake "I produce museum-quality photographs of Wildlife and Landscapes from national and regional nature parks. My portfolio contains thousands of beautiful images from North America and Europe."

Carol Caputo "I am nourished by the sight of flowers, beautiful vistas, trees, birds, and other wildlife. I try to capture these images in my own small way. Then I can delight in them over and over again. I enjoy sharing my photographs with others."

Glenda Kirkman "Photography is my passion. I enjoy capturing the beauty of t
he natural world and unbelievably still shoot Film!"

Larry Oskin "My Art Beautique creations are very stylized as photo impressionism. I believe that photography remains one of our best artistic forms of creative media and visual expression."

Allen Pearson "I am an artist celebrating the unique beauty of God's Creation through photography."

Dave Rafalko "I enjoy capturing the wondrous interplay of sunlight, shadows, and clouds with

both the natural and man-made".

Joan Singer "I played violin for 40 years, and after acquiring a hearing impairment, sought another form of artistic epression."

Spring!

YAY!! It's spring!! It's snowing here today, but it's spring so it won't stick on the roads, just on the grassy surfaces. At the end of every summer season and we go into fall, I begin looking forward to the upcoming spring. I don't wish my life away, as some would say, as I enjoy the winter too, as I've shown in recent postings. However, the warmer seasons are my absolute favorites. I love to watch nature begin it's growing and blooming season as the daffodils begin to bloom and buds come out on the trees. Soon, it'll be a colorful spring. Be sure to take the time to enjoy spring and it's beauty. It only happens once a year and many times, each year is a bit different.

A Prayer For Meditation


A Prayer for Meditation O God, the strength of all who put their trust in you: Mercifully accept our prayers; and because in our weakness we can do nothing good without you, give us the help of your grace, that in keeping your commandments we may please you both in will and deed; through Christ Jesus our Lord, who lives reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
