Please add a POEM about your fave ARTIST and
I will change the picture just for YOU ! BRIAN XOX


The Light of the World shines over us all,
As it shined through his life.
This man who was no Scapegoat,
But painted his thoughts onto canvas.


THERE are three versions of LIGHT of THE WORLD
By HOLMAN HUNT a PRERAPHAELITE PAINTER (1827 - 1910)
The first (1853) is in the Chapel at Keeble College Oxford
The second (Pastels 1856) is in Manchester Art Gallery
The third (1904) is in St Pauls Cathedral
It is an extremely popular painting ~ worldwide !
The closed door represents the SHUT MIND
The lamp represents the BIBLE ~ the WORD of GOD
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Please add your ARTIST and a POEM ~ Thanks BRIAN


Dali ever hallucinating,
handlebared and Gala led
with showmanship his repertoire
A master of the avant garde
a master of them all.


THE PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY ~ SALVADOR DALI 1931
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The IMPRESSIONISTS were a backlash
to the CAMERA ~ too sharp & too precise !
They softened the image and presented a softer
and gentler view of the World ~ especially RENOIR
The SURREALISTS Like DALI ~ took it step further
They painted not what they saw with the eye
but what the perceived in the MIND
Distorted TIME perfect example
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Please add another POEM I will add PAINTING ~ BRIAN


I cannot quite remember his name,
but his oil paintings were always great.
The way he paints the wild waves,
slam against the boulders face.


WAVES BREAKING ON THE SHORE ~ JIM WHEADON
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I love
The sound of
waves breaking
on the shore its one
of the most soothing sounds
on earth ~ sends U to sleep in
seaside hotel or boarding house !
Jim has captured them ~ in his
paintings ~ and the movement
and sound in his videos
check them on youtube
awesome ~ BRIAN
thank you
XOXOX


~~~~MY FAVORITE ARTIST~~~~
Impossible to choose just one
My art tastes are varied and many
Like a minestrone soup...
Many ingredients to be enjoyed!
From the Beginning of Time to Post Modernism...
Giotto, Donatello, DaVinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Bellini,
El Greco, Caravaggio, Canova, Delacroix, Monet, VanGogh, Matisse, Picasso, Dalí, Pollock, Warhol, Gehry...
Just to name a few!
We travel the world to see their masterpieces.
I don’t have to go far to see the masterpieces
of my latest discovery whose artwork I enjoy tremendously!
He’s right here on MPS...
MICHAEL EDWARDS!
My new favorite living artist!

ANDY WHARHOL ~ 1928 - 87 ~ GENIUS ~ BRIANSODES
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
GRAZIE LAURA
For mentioning ANDY
Gives me an excuse to post
six of his MARILYNS ! He is my
favorite POP ARTIST and he
broke all the rules
and barriers
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Please add your fave ARTIST ~ I will add painting


I know that not everyone will agree
but why has no one mentioned me?


MICHAEL EDWARDS ~ FAVORITE POET ON MPS ~ BRIANSODES
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
MICHEAL EDWARDS ARTIST
I really like his Village
CHURCHES grace his lovely ODES
HE paints from the Heart (not Head)
AND also shares ~ his wooden MODES
EVERYTHING that Michael paints
LIFTS him level with the saints


~~~~TWO OF THE BEST~~~~
You’re welcome BRIAN and
Thank you for acknowledging
Two of my favorites
MICHEAL & ANDY
with a write of your own
ANDY’S Marilyn is great
Now it’s MICHAEL’S turn
Please do post one his very own
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Oh Laura darling I didn't see
that you'd taken the trouble to mention me
and here was me feeling quite low
with a dent in my over inflated ego.
.
Bless you xxx


BY POPULAR DEMAND ~ MICHAEL EDWARDS ~ BRIANSODES
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
MICHAEL
takes his stand
With Brush in hand
he waits inside the Village
Gates and paints Village scenes
and Village Pubs & Churches all the day
long he searches ! For scenes to
Paint Folks think he's quaint
he's always writin' odes
as he walks ~ along
quiet Country
ROADS !
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Dedicated to MICHAEL ~ The Peoples Artist !
This poem is written in INTERNAL RHYME ~ OK


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The
selection
is perfection
Worthy of its exhibition
“The Beholders Eye”*shows
the love, the warmth,
the tenderness
Perfect
Art

    Mio Caro Amico BRIAN,
    Tutto perfetto! (All perfect)
    Grazie a tutti! (Thank you everyone)
    Thank you for starting this fusioned poem! Perfect from beginning to end! I thoroughly enjoyed participating in this fusion! It gave us an opportunity to honor one of our own...MICHAEL EDWARDS!
    Abbracci e Baci...

    Hello Brian, What an interesting poem... I always found acrostics very interesting. In terms of the rest of the poems in this fusioned poem, I really enjoyed the stanza about Dali. One of my favorite paintings is Dail's The Persistence of Memory. And, like you said, "They painted not what they saw with the eye but with the mind." This poem is very interesting. It is written by several contributors and yet, in terms of its style, the poem reads very smoothly as if it was written by one author in one sitting.

      Thanks JO ~ Because you are an accomplished POET ~ I greatly value your encouraging comments FUSIONS are an enigma ~ sometimes they work well like this one ~ at other times (like my current one on Fish) don\'t even get out of the water ! Perhaps yo would like to add a Piscine Poem ! I guess in JOHNATHON\'S mind he did want the Poems in each Fusion to complement each other ~ Many contributors ~ 15 Poems (the limit) ~ one theme ~ one mind ~ OK Unfortunately one is allowed only one PICTURE so I had to keep changing it ! I have had to replace my SALMON ~ In the present one ~ with MIKE\'s SEAHORSE ~ so if you write about DOLPHINS I will post a picture of a DOLPHIN ~ OK ~ One Day you might like to post a FUSION of YOUR OWN and I promise to add a POEM ~ OK ~ Thanks for your personal contribution to MPS ~ Your Friend BRIAN (UK)
