A Gifted Talent XXXIII...Madeleine

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 15, 2014, 10:53 AM
Dear friends of the arts please allow me to introduce to you Madeleine and her perspicacious talent for tapping into an artistic utopia.
I know many of you may already know of her work but for those of you who don' hope is that you will find her work as inspirational as I have.

Madeleine is an artist from Canada and for me her work is always visually inscriptive...showing an in-depth talent for the art of Photomanipulation.
DA defines Photomanipulations as the combining of two or more separate images to make one. So simple in theory and yet so hard in execution as I well know, being one who couldn't manip his way out of a paper bag. To create any art in this process alone is commendable but to create the fine art that she does, time and again, is frankly speaking...exemplary.

As Madeleine commented on one of her pieces, "A gentle child cherishes a globe and contemplates a world filled with peace and love"...I think you will find this a recurring theme throughout her fine body of work. Even her "darker" pieces aspire to a loftier idealism.

Without further ado, may I present to you from Canada…

I hope you can afford the time to visit Madeleine's gallery.
It's a trip worth taking and as always...admission is free on DA.

I would like to say to my friends and watchers that if I haven't featured you, it by no means implies that your work doesn't warrant it.
Its just that I am easily the biggest procrastinator around. Forgive me...I hope to get to it eventually.
So many of you sincerely deserve solo shows as well :heart:
