My destination was the Riverside MTRA station.A short block away is a wonderful Ice Cream shop called Grumpy's . I had to pause there and get a good cup of coffee!!

Anotherr day another walk, thu the little woodland trail. It is only about three blocks long Itt seems like the last stand for nature. The trail thru it has been left alone for a number of years because it goes thru wet land next to the Desplains River. It is too small for bikers and hikers. God made it for strollers like me!
It starts near an 1888 home. Thru a woods, across a swing Bridge to the Village of Riverside. Every day I walk this walk!

Each day I will live this walk with you I will show the pictures of my mind, with my third eye.

For the last three weeks they have been here!
Creatures related to the fly. They look like a big pregnant bee. They beat on there body a mating call and fly about looking for fun. They are now at there peak..
All the other creatures eat them. In Lyons at a picknic a man eat 22 to get a T shirt! Even a flock of Sea Gulls flew in from the Ocean.

Yesterday on the trail to Riverside I could not even hear the birds I wore a dark green shirt and I am tall. After crossing the swinging bridge I was jumped by a band of them. I was not perticular interested in mating with them. After wipping them from me they departed noisely.
In six weeks their eggs will hatch in the tre43es. They will then fall to the ground. I am looking forward to that!
Note: the 17-year cicadas will make an appearance in eastern Iowa, northern Illinois, southern Wisconsin, and along the southern edge of Late Michigan. Dense populations of this brood (Brood XIII) will emerge in farm-edge woods along rivers as well as in suburban Chicago backyards and forest preserves.

On the walk I hear it all!

On the trail from Lyons thru Riverside Lawn across the swinging bridge to Riverside I hear them all.
Then I fear no evil,for God is with us all.

A Real Artist
`There is nothing so strong or safe in an emergency of life as the simple truth.’Charles Dickens
Our most wonderful artist’s have not had easy paths. Would Van Gogh or Gauguin if alive today be worldly successes, the products of clever self promotion skills.
No because their paths were about truths, their focus was not in the direction of the world but on presenting these truths, and presenting such truths to a comfortable world is not something that is immediate.
So much of contemporary art falls within established genres that reflect back to society what it wants to hear.
To step outside these zones and present work that is real and often raw in its emotion is not easy.
Lloyd Irving Bradbury is an artist whose work can be compared to the greatness of both Van Gogh and Gauguin.
His images and sketches present truths about his experience and society that have meaning on real levels.
His work does not take on the slick formula of many contemporary presentations, but is a real voice expressing the world in a truthful and often confronting manner.
The image above is a sketch he completed at the time he left his `Cave’ in inner city Chicago. The mood and energy of this sketch are immediate. The artist’s pen reflects back to us with real feeling a busy, goal orientated city and its many darknesses.
Now Lloyd has moved to a more natural environment on the outskirts of Chicago it will be exciting to see the impact his reconnection to nature has on his images.
If I was a collector looking to add a new, exciting artist to my collection I would be contacting Lloyd and seeing what stock he has available.
This artist has continued to work with a refreshingly honest voice over a protracted period of time. These qualities will make his work valuable over time as well as bringing real art into your home.

A Pause

Man can not live by bread alone,
for his mind would turn to stone.
His body would be made of salt,
if God's commandments he is found fault.
I have not posted for a while for my art has taken a turn. It has beem a pause to learn. Inspired by The artist's Creative Spirit!
