Susan...thanks for your kind reply... as for my visual works, some of my newer illustration works are on my TJN home page, and my more traditional "portfolio" website is www.mainephotographics.com and my jazz quartet/quintet works are in the progress of composing and recording...I truly love to play in my groups...but it's a whole new learning curve for me with the recording end of the performance process....but i'll get it understood .....lol...i'm such a perfectionist about hearing my groups woprks....all my best to you...always b
Bravo... Bravissimo Susan!!!! Simply stunning works... arrangements, stylings and sweet musicianship on top of it all....nice chops too!....Brazilian music seems to give my "old" scottish / russian heart such a boost (too many Maine winters is not good...lol) Thank you for sharing your artistry here at TJN...would love to network with you anytime should you need visuals and imagery to match you musical artistry...get to NYC a couple times a year to shoot and catch up on all the great Jazz there...my best to you ...always b
Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
Let's be audacious, my friends!
