About The Blog

Arthor Journer is my pen name.
"Arthor" comprises "art" + "Author" while "Journer" defines the journey that I was on and continue to travel.
In this blog is the emotional byproduct of this journey.

"Rites of Art" is the title because it is my "writes" of passage.

Consider This

"Swirling Thoughts"
(Acrylic on Board)

Consider this tender flower or this sturdy tree,
The universe found in a grain of sand.
Yet they do not kiss the lips of infinity,
On which my wandering dreams stand.

Consider the sweet wind or the laughter I see,
Heaven found in this drop of rain.
Though their borders do not fly free,
To reach the grasp of my brain.

Consider this pregnant cloud or blossoming flower,
The symphony found in the notes on this page.
Yesterdays lost and infinity lasting only one hour,
Still my thoughts cannot be condemned to a cage.

Poetry is quoted from "Emotional Mosaic (2nd)"

In The Mind of The Artist - "Balinese Dancer (1)"

The first time I visited Bali I was overwhelmed by the beauty and the grace of the traditional dancers. Their movement of their hands is so elegant and pure and the positioning of their feet is so graceful and sure. Every time I see a performance I am more and more amazed.

In this painting I attempted to capture the loveliness and elegance of the Balinese dancers.
