Art of Authenticity



Peace & Grace Beautiful Ones….

The uniqueness in art, is that it appeals to those who have genuine love for its purpose, the stories it tells and complexity and versatility it provides just to name a few.  Rather its abstract or that of minimalism or even perhaps a portrait, there is beauty and depth in all styles.

For this matter, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and regardless what your canvas looks like, you are a masterpiece and there is only one YOU.  So what’s your canvas, you inquire as you tweedle your thumbs and you mind begins to ponder??? Shuga, it’s your spirit, your smile, your features, that being the one who lays down with you at night  and awakens with you every morning.  Give thanks your canvas doesn’t rely on rave reviews and the greatest bidder being in attendance because we all are amazing works of art and absolutely- Spectacular.

Love & Blessings to you , you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.
