Fantastic Sally Swatland Paintings: Children on the Beach
Saturday, 24 January 2009

Images of the sea have long captivated our imagination and have been a popular source of inspiration for artists who have found a sympathetic audience with their work. Contemporarily, Sally Swatland’s images of young children playing on the beaches are tinged with a sense of nostalgia that reminds us of a bygone time, when a day at the beach offered respite from the busyness of daily life. Her sensitive images evoke the reminiscences of a period when life was uncomplicated and happiness was found in the simplest of activities. This is just one of the aspects of Sally’s work that audiences are drawn to - the sense that through her pictures one can retreat into the past. Her light-filled palette of rich colors also expresses the richness of a flowering garden and the breeze of a summer day. Her work has become highly sought after for these qualities which are inherent in her work.

"My favorite images are of children playing along the water's edge, mirrored by bright and colorful reflections".

~ Sally Swatland

Gecko Paradise by Yves Rubin
Sunday, 18 January 2009

"The geckos of Hawaii have earned a great reputation rooted in the earliest history and the first migrations to the islands. While there are over 900 species of geckos worldwide, only eight species have settled on the islands, four of these in recent years... They sure make themselves at home in our houses. Gecko droppings everywhere! Yet, as long as they stay out of my printer and hard drive, I'll feed them honey every night..."

~ Guardian Geckos by Veronica S. Schweitzer

Splash of Fresh
Wednesday, 14 January 2009

"Like 80% of our body is water so does 80% of fruit consist of water! If you think about it, it's logical for the human body to consume food that contains as much water as the body itself. The nutrition that meets that requirement is fruit. There is no other food than fruit on this planet that contains on average 80% water. Vegetables also contain a lot of water and are therefore second best."

~ The Fruit Pages
