Maleko’s Art graciously accepts this most coveted of blog awards, not to take anything away from the other awards. But with every award there is the fine print so now let’s take a moment to examine the criteria for acceptance.
Maleko’s Art is. . .
Real: The stories, the poems, the photos, the art are all from my real life…
Energizing: Hoping to shine a light into the dark places we all have and to show a hope that love always wins…
Amazing: Shows that dancing on the edge of the abyss need not be fatal…
Lovely: Really? Well okay, great art and photos that are nice to look at?
Inspiring: Art is seen with the eyes, felt with the heart and captured in the soul…
Touching: Letting the softer side show through the rough exterior, we have all been wounded…
Yippee: Again, shining a light of hope that there can always be a redemption!
Not really sure about the criteria of lovely but I will leave that up to you. There are some some beautiful thought provoking poetry and stories often accompanied by some very visually stimulating images. A picture can be worth a thousand words. The drawings and paintings are also well done of often easily recognizable subjects (can someone say horses!) and they often represent a larger truth and meaning behind the image.
