Black Friday

Just a little note to those of you who participated in the Black Friday shopping. I usually don't go, but this year I went midafternoon on Friday. Really not bad, found parking and made some great deals on Christmas gifts. Never have I gone at 1 or 2 am, etc. That to me is for the young at heart and those who want to be carried away in a cloud of people when the door opens. I am not quite that brave, but to those of you who do, good luck.

I prefer a more relaxed shopping experience and Maceys was just perfect at 3 pm. I  found a parking spot right in front, (luck was on my side!) Sure, I didn't get the huge discounts that were available at the early AM hours but I still made some great deals. All in all it was a good day and I enjoyed it.

Internet is my favorite for those I remember who live elsewhere,  and free shipping was a big savings too.

Well, hopefully your experience was fun and fruitful. Have a wonderful Christmas Holiday season.

An Opulent Tableau of Essence

“An Opulent Tableau of Essence”   Created by Sharon Hays

Sharon Hays, author of two mystery novels, a children’s book and many poems, created this book, which exhibits a diverse collection of twenty-four artists, a sculptor and poets from Italy, Russia, United States, India, Australia, Germany, Uzbekistan, UK, and Turkey. United in in this lovely compilation, it represents unique talents and creativity in the arts.

The title, “An Opulent Tableau of Essence” perfectly depicts the creative display of art and poetry that was named through a contest on Facebook by Sculptor and Artist Samantha Churchill, whose works are included.

This coffee table book is filled with impressive prints from each artist with unique and various mediums; to include oils, sketches, acrylics, digital illustrations, photography and sculptures. Below each print is a title of the work and the Artists’ name. On the opposite page is an emotional or inspirational poem or prose that gives an artistic depiction of the print from an expressive viewpoint. Each poem will stimulate viewers in various ways. As we are all aware, art is defined in the eye of the beholder. One could imagine many interpretations of each print.

The inspiration to create this compilation has been a long coming. After meeting the artists and admiring their works, the collaboration came together with different facets of their unique and individual styles. These creative artists have many more to show, and this book gives them another door to open for new exposure. Biographies of authors, artists, poets and sculptor are listed at the back, with information so that one may go to each individual website and view more of the artists’ creative and interpretative works.

Daniele Montella, the cover artist, and visionary illustrator has illustrated all of Sharon Hays’ books. His remarkable talents as one can see from the magnificent digital print, ‘Essence’. Some of his other illustrations include covers for Sharon Hays’ ‘Mysteerie Manor’ and the sequel, ‘Mysteerie Manor II’, which has just been released, Hays’ children’s book, ‘The Tumbleweed Family’, an imaginative book for children that was released June, 2011.

Hays’ purpose is that you enjoy the journey, while it inspires your inner soul and takes you into illusive places that come out of nowhere, and bathes you in artwork and poetry. “Many thanks to artists and poets who participated in this beautiful book.” For more information go to:

Thanksgiving Day

Hello again!

Just wanted to chat a bit about Thanksgiving and its meaning to me. All of us have different ideas of the holiday but one in particular stands out and that is what we have to be thankful for. Our great Country we love and abide in; the USA.

Most of all, I just want to say thanks for all that God has given me the chance to experience in this great world. Family first, and without friends where would we be? Friends are surely topping on the cake of life! After all of the things God has bestowed upon us, Family and friends surely mean the most!

I have been blessed and just taking time to say thanks to all of those who I have had the chance to meet and chat on Facebook and other channels throughout the time I decided to become a writer and author. Two years have slipped by while I dug into the world of a writer and since then, I have been served  a big slice of the pie of life  to keep my aspirations high. Thanks to family, friends and  fans alike! Happy Thanksgiving to you! Enjoy your Pie!

It would be great if you would add your own comments about Thanksgiving today and lets pass it on!

I Just completed an art poetry compilation including 24 artists and poets from around the world. Nine countries including US. It will soon be available on all channels as well. It is a beautiful hardcover including art prints and poetry on each page including 124 pages. An Opulent Tableau of Essence is truly an expression of the arts in full bloom.
