K is for...

For my 2017 challenge, I was not sure quite what I wanted to blog about. Numerous ideas were coming to mind but each seemed to require even more energy and strength. So I've decided to focus on an acronym for ART:
A - Artists (musicians, painters, photographers, writers, etc.)
- Reading (books, poems, etc.)
T - Theater (movies, musicals, plays, etc.)

So let's begin...

A - Lev Lvovich KAMENEV
Russian landscape artist Lev Lvovich Kamenev is unfortunately under appreciated and criticized for a 'sameness'. Funny enough, what I enjoy most about his work is the way his focal source of light draws the eye away from the mundane and 'sameness' whether it is a brook of water where the reflection of light in the water speaks of hope or a light in the window of a snow-covered cottage promising warmth and belonging...
Winter Landscape
R - John Keats
Who doesn't love to read a poem or quote by John Keats?

T - The King of Kings (1961)
This Biblical epic film may not the most popular but has a gorgeous soundtrack by Miklós Rózsa that was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and was the first major studio film to actually show Jesus' face. Another fun fact is that Orson Welles did the uncredited narration.


  1. I've seen both versions of King of Kings, and am going to be blogging about the silent original next month for its 90th anniversary. It's got some lovely Technicolor scenes, and wonderful acting.

  2. Wow, those landscapes are gorgeous!
