The Aeons of Art

The Aeons of Art

This is a tribute to all those who have created art (painting, photography, glass, sculpture, etc.,) since time immemorial – to those who have produced a vast array of images over the aeons, from rock & cave art to huge canvases to small pieces to doodlings at home, to paintings on crockery, both large & small sculptures, beautiful glassware, wherever people share their imagination, creativity and joy in art in all its multitude of manifestations.

It doesn’t matter if you’re well-known or simply creating art on small bits of paper at home – you are part of a tradition going back tens of thousands of years. Welcome to the tribe of artistic angels who light our own lives and those of so many others!

This digital art is created from a base of a frozen waterfall in the Smokies overlaid with a photo of a waterfall flowing into the sea at Big Sur. The horse in the bottom right hand corner represents the wealth of rock and cave art which still leaves us dazzled at the creativity and clarity of images. The frozen waterfall represents the images of the past, immortalised in so many ways through canvas, paper and whatever people have chosen as a base on which to create their images, while the flowing waterfall represents the never-ending creativity of humanity.
