Mother Connie Sez: Art Begs to be NOTICED!

This handsome artwork is proudly displayed on the wall of the home of Mother Connie and The Normanator! The artist is Ralph P. Brown, a Mohawk Indian and world renowned artist who specializes in pointillistic impressions!
It is totally true.  Just like an energetic little child, fine art begs to be noticed.

 In the same way that good food, rest, exercise and water are essential to life, fine art is equally necessary.  The energy of art work helps to balance the energy of the beholder.  It’s mystical.  It’s magical.  And it is incredibly important to our overall well being.
Even toddlers who visit our home are fascinated by the pastel painting shown above.  Those little people gaze at it longer than you’d expect their attention span to hold and they seem to be genuinely in awe of the creation.
I am, too.  To think that we own Ralph P. Brown’s art work and display it on our wall is just mind boggling to me.  Some of his pieces make me weep because they–HE- is so incredible.

Amazingly, Ralph P. Brown is a self-taught artist.  He uses a stipple style-little dots- in order to create the pointillistic impressions of his cultural and spiritual ideas. He draws inspiration from his native culture, Mother Nature and his unique perspective on the world.  Ralph P. Brown is a spiritual giant.  And he and his bride are our dear, close friends.

Ralph recognizes that art reveals something intrinsically glorious about itself, the artist, and the beholder.  He understands that his art pieces reflect The Self the way a mirror reflects an image.

The Normanator and I freely admit we are his “Art Groupies” because we have his paintings on the wall; we wear Tee Shirts with images he created printed on them; and our bookshelves are lined with volumesAwakening the Eagle: A Guide to the Medicine Wheel he penned.  The man is a leader, a teacher, and a healer.

Don’t take our word for it.  Visit his site.  Go to his virtual Art Gallery, Mirrored Windows and see for yourself what he has brought to life.  But I’m warning you: It might take your breath away.  And do  bring along a tissue because you might be like me and be moved to tears a time or two.

After you have toured the gallery and studied Ralph's beautiful offerings,  please come back here and let Mother Connie know how you FEEL about the work and what you liked best, won't you please?  Thanks oodles!

  1. He is indeed a talented and giving man. And the beauty of his artwork is doubled as there is always an inspirational meaning behind the work. Thank you for spotlighting this brilliant artist!

  2. Brilliant is a good word for it, Anita! His talents, his gifts, his winning personality all make for an unique artist whose brilliance can dazzle the imagination of the observer.

    Besides, he is way fun and sometimes one might not realize that just by looking at his works. Each piece is so introspective that you could easily expect the artist to be a somber sort!

    We love him 4EVER, huh?

    Mother Connie
