I avoid Carnivals. Art changed that.

Artists have a way of seeing things differently.
It is what we do.

When someone experiences your art they get a glimpse of
a brand new world.

Art brings wonder to our lives. It moves us.
It opens us.
I feel this every time I see potent art.

This just happened when my friend and photographer, Arthur Drooker,
showed me his recently published photography book Cosmic Carnival.

I stopped going to carnivals once my kids grew up
and stopped asking.

I stopped going because I no longer find anything of value there.

But looking at the remarkable photography of Arthur’s changed all that.
Watch the video below.

Taking the overlooked and making it new again
is a gift given to all of us.

Arthur’s Cosmic Carnival does just that.

How has the art of other’s changed your world?
Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

And….as a special bonus today, Arthur is going to give one lucky artist a signed copy of Cosmic Carnival!

He will choose someone from the comments and it just might be you!

For the rest of us, here is a link where you can grab your own copy of Cosmic Carnival. Enjoy!
