Zion Vista by Erin Hanson

The bridge over the Virgin River, in Zion National Park, is a popular spot to catch the beautiful red cliffs and winding river. This painting captures all the drama and magnificence of this amazing vista. The oil paint was thickly applied with a brush, the impressionsitic colors melding together to capture the fleeting light of dawn. READ MORE

Erin Hanson Joshua Dance

Joshua Tree National Park is full of inspiration for painting, with its abstract piles of rocks and otherworldly Joshua Trees. This painting captures a pair of Joshuas dancing against a backdrop of California desert landscape. The brush strokes are thick and impressionistic, alive with color and motion. READ MORE

Borrego in Bloom by Erin Hanson

The 2017 “super bloom” in southern California caused thousands of visitors to roam the desert and mountainsides, photographing the bright, abundant flowers. I explored the super bloom in Borrego Springs, and they were indeed the most beautiful I have ever seen in the desert! I was actually inspired to release a whole new collection of works of the super bloom, to be released later this summer. READ MORE

On the Beach by Frank Creaturo, Jr.

I read about art and culture, art magazines, I joined about 36 art groups on Facebook and then I started my own called Art Effects and now has over 21,000 friends there to share their artwork and critique. I’ve even been invited to international shows, but that involves a lot of packing the art and then packing and shipping it home if it doesn’t sell. But, it’s been a great experience having the group and meeting people all over the world. And, I do ‘gift of the day’ on my own page because it’s too much to try and upload it to all the groups.

Vroman's bookstore logo

Vroman’s “AN INDIE BOOKSTORE MOMENT” by B.J. Hegedus I was working on a display table in our Home Emporium section, stacks of new cookbooks, waiting for their place alongside gift merchandise. Figuring it all out is akin to real life Tetrus. While stringing twinkle lights through some very tall branches I’d discovered in our fixture room, a woman walked up to me and asked if I might be able to recommend a new book for her to read. What do you like to read, I asked. Mysteries with strongly defined characters she said. She loved to find authors whom had written numerous books so she READ MORE

Władysław Strzemiński, played by Polish superstar Boguslaw Linda with his students

When film publicist Sasha Berman sends something over, we pay close attention to her indie films, which have artistic characteristics different from U.S. films — a certain rawness. They are culturally based, provative, and the subtitles give the film an even more intriguing perspective, as we found it so with her most recent premiere, AFTERIMAGE. Los Angeles Times film critic Robert Abele had this to say:

Andrzej Wajda’s “Afterimage” feels vividly connected to the Polish auteur’s beginnings, yet also acts as the kind of haunting close that sums up a life. READ MORE

Secrets of the Young & Successful

To be successful, we all have to be able to sell ourselves quickly and clearly. Just think: How can other people buy into your vision and what you’re all about if they don’t know what you have to offer in the first place? One of the most remarkable things about the Young and Successful is that they almost always have a story to tell that defines them. When asked what they’re up to, they never utter the useless response, “Uh, nothing much.” READ MORE
