The Masters Award is presented to Ed Parkinson (and Invitation to his Exhibition)


First I want to  say thanks to 

Sharla Shults

who bestowed this award to me.  

There are no  words to express my thanks at this time.

My gratitude is only exceeded

by the shock of receiving the award.

To help me express my appreciation

would you be so kind as to take a tour

on her page and see the rainbow of love

and the myriad ways she expresses it.  

I have learned so much from her

and I think you will enjoy it.

The New Recipient

It is my honor and privilege,

to bestow “The Masters Award”

to Ed Parkinson

www.spiritualartblog.com

I met Ed in a wonderful way that only the world of bloggers can truly enjoy….but others do.  We met through another blogger Mick Casey of  tonysnewsletter.com  While we were chatting on Skype one a day,  (when I was looking for more of Mr Mick`s poetry), he shared a  link       It  helped two friends of mine in trauma at the time so profoundly.  I called back to thank Mick for the link and the healing it brought my friends.  He said you should tell Ed.  I did when Mick added him to the call.  And as they say,  the rest is history.
After the bio about Ed  is your invitation for the exhibition coming up based on the theme of the original video I saw.   
 

Some of Ed Parkinson’s pictures bring you to a place of peace and tranquility where you can become absorbed in the peaceful beauty of the picture. They can act as a stepping stone for your imagination to travel to a sacred place where you can find sanctuary away from the stresses and troubles of life.

Ed explores the spiritual side of our lives in his work. His use of realistic imagery makes it easy to comprehend the concepts he portrays such as, our life’s journey, our inner selves, our dreams and more. Through his visions we can grasp a better understanding of our thoughts as we can now see what we are thinking or discussing.

He explains his thinking. “As an artist I work at bringing thoughts, abstract ideas and spiritual concepts into pictures we can see and easily understand. My goal is to give people an insight into their ‘life within’ and show them a brighter side where they can find hope, understanding and love.”

Ed Parkinson’s artwork has been described as “Visionary”, “Inspirational”, “Stunning” and “Beautiful”. He has the ability to capture deep and spiritual thoughts and put them in an image we can connect with. “A picture is worth a thousand words” is definitely true for Ed’s work.

Your personal  invitation to his exhibition is below:

Ed Parkinson explores the spiritual side of our lives in his work. His use of realistic imagery makes it easy to comprehend the concepts he portrays, such as our life’s journey, our inner selves, our dreams and more. Through his visions we can grasp a better understanding of our thoughts as now we can see what we are thinking or discussing.

Using a combination of painting, photographs, 3D art and computer generated images, Ed Parkinson brings visions from his imagination into pictures we can see. It is a view from a different angle which gives an insight we probably hadn’t considered before. For some people the pictures confirm a concept they had trouble visualising.

  12. Wow, I finally got that comment in. I’ve been trying to do it since you gave me the award. WordPress has some hoops to jump through. Then for some reason the comment box dissappeared. But thanks again for this wonderful award.
