A dark road met a ray of light

They held hands for a moment

against the glowing horizon

Shadows sought to guide the way

Where fear once lived

a greater curiosity stood

Meeting pale times

too young to live in memory

Winding metallic lines meet boldly.

Waves catch mid days light,

Holding their form,

Anticipating the curious.

Eyes still standing,

Encase the surrogate womb,

Sealing deep wells,

Impressing your mind.

Bold eyes search for signs of life

Combing the waters glowing canopy

Brazen and banded

They seek hidden prey

Killing the meek amongst the reef

This world above meets the aquatic below

As the seaweed grows

Young loners meet their pale day

Destined to sleep while killers play

Believe it or not, this is actually a picture of a piece of home decor that I had received as a Christmas gift two years ago. Just when I think I can’t get any more photos from this object, a fresh idea emerges.

One arrow faces north, the other south.

The sudden urge to yield to the hearts desires are first monitored, then fastidiously controlled.

A desperate twin and its polar opposite are brought together with a tight hinge.

There is no hint of neutrality or a reluctant peace treaty, only a trusty handle to ensure cooperation.

My mother bought two of these objects to help us clean and organize the house. One unusually dull afternoon, I turned to look at the hearth. The object was leaning clumsily to one side. At first, I thought that I was going to get a work break with this newly discovered find, a one shot photo. However, I had to take several shots before I was satisfied with the results. Finally, I chose this photo for the unveiling. Its design reminded me of many strained relationships (they may be work relationships or personal relationships) that occur because the people involved have opposing views on how things should be done. The top arrows represent one side the bottom arrows the other. The arrow designs on both the top and the bottom are both black and white in order to represent the concept that contained within extreme forms of thought, there are still ideas which contradict one another, therefore making the arguments of each side less valid. Neither side would give except that ultimately they are working towards the same goal. This cause, (represented by the hinge), binds them together; they are forced to work out their differences. This is achieved with the handle. In this design, it is placed strategically in the middle like a referee. The handle ( person or organization representing the handle) carries the two opposing sides, helping them to work out their differences until they have their next inevitable disagreement. Without this handle, their would be no achievement or progress.

Her beauty unfurls

Rolling out leaves to catch the midday sun

Restless anticipation hides true motivation

Waiting for her lover

She devours time trails and frequent expectations

by Marisa D. Aceves

 

Believe it or not, your typical home decor location and old science fiction films provided the background for this latest retro, insect inspired abstract photography series. It’s underlying theme is simple, beauty can be a beast. Fantastic fairy tails aside, we can all relate to situations in our lives when our minds and bodies were telling us we were headed for danger, but our eyes tempted us to proceed.

Ordinary Objects That Look Like Geometric Paintings

Light leaks through narrow slats

Shadows fall

Sensation divided

A simulacrum of an image

Poses as truth

While quiet desperation bleeds silently

Gently dying like the heart of a desperate man

by Marisa D. Aceves

 

This series was somewhat difficult to finish. The image fragments I fused to create the finished artwork above did not come together easily. Nevertheless, the look of the work included in this new collection was inspired by modern architecture and geometric optical illusion art of the sixties.

 

A Silent Dedication To The Tough But Tender

Hard yet gentle

Strength holds fragile love in its grasp

This our subtle flower

Guarded by a crown

I’d like to take a little time out this busy fall weekend to dedicate this photo collage to all the tough but tender folks in the world. Sometimes they reveal difficult truths to save us from our own destruction. At first, this makes us angry and we scoff at their timeworn advice. Later, we realize their love was real not conditional. They helped us become the older, wiser people that we are today. If you are moved to share this dedication with a loved one in their honor, take the precious opportunity that life presents. However, if your loved one is no longer with us, take this moment of silence to reflect on the impact they made in your life.

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend

❤️ As always, don’t forget to live life creatively!

Love waits patiently….

Closer than wondering minds can percieve

Nearer still, if you dare to believe

 

I feel that I must share this series at a time when many would question whether there was any good in this world. The frequency with which we view violence and hate in our everyday lives would lead us to believe that love is a myth, an outdated set of rules our grandparents were forced to adhere to. However, there are people out there that do know what love is all about. Perhaps you have met some along the way. They accept you for who you are, support you during difficult times and are encouraged by your success. I kindly ask that this weekend, or sometime this coming week, you let the special, loving people in your life know just how much you appreciate their presence and contribution to your life.

Have a blessed weekend and a joyful week!

Remember always, to live life creatively!

Will To Live…

Challenges fall as we overcome

Fears that bind us

Till courage sees the sun

 

When I created this particular piece, I did not expect that it would have the overall look and feel that it did.  I was not purposefully trying to shoot this object with the human form in mind. However, that is what the results revealed.  As I stared at the finished photograph, it looked like both a human torso and a long neck and shoulders.

What does this object remind you of?

Have a wonderful weekend and a productive week!
