Planning my 50th

Published March 8, 2017 by lynn k scott

Something I have been doing lately, is setting goals for myself. I am vocalizing my dreams in order to turn them into reality. I am sharing them here, on Facebook and with friends. I am holding myself accountable to make my goals happen.

Today, another dream, has turned into a goal.  While I am only heading toward the ripe-old-age of 46, I am planning something extremely special for my 50th birthday.  You see, I have this incredibly talented, yet humble, friend; someone I’ve yet to personally meet.

I’ve written about Dan before:  “He is my rainbow…”.  I hadn’t thought about it, but I would actually have to consider him my writing muse.  It’s often said to tell people you care about them now, because tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone.  Seeing how my family was ripped away from me, how Dan was there, I couldn’t imagine not knowing him.  Other people have come and gone from my life.  Each has taught me something; whether it was good or bad.  Where Dan is concerned, it’s as if his paintbrush has touched my soul and brightened it like the water colors do for his paintings.

The link we originally shared was my sister, Kathi.  Our friendship has blossomed like one of his paintings.  It started out small, details were added, life was breathed into it and now, here we are, years later, special friends with such an emotional tie. I know my life wouldn’t be complete without his positive influence.

Now that I have a few years, I can work on figuring out how to surprise Dan.  There are some logistics to plan, after all I’m in CA and he’s in TX and I will need some inside help. I don’t foresee that as an issue though.  It will be my first trip to TX (outside of the airport, that is).  I want to visit the Craighead Green Gallery, where is exhibits are shown.

In fact, if you are in the Dallas area, Dan will be opening a new exhibit, “Removing the Veil”, on April 1, 2017, and you’ll be able to see his amazing work first hand.  If you happen to meet him, please tell him, “Kathi’s sister sent me”.

Here is a video previewing the upcoming show.  One day, I will attend one of Dan’s opening.  I have always wanted to attend an art opening, but refuse to do so, until I can see his work on opening night.

I wish my friend much success and know I will be offering a long overdue hug for all his success, support and friendship, when we finally meet.

A Stroke In Time

Published November 22, 2015 by lynn k scott

I considered myself honored to be friends with professional artist, Dan Angeles, who allows the opportunity to see some of his work before they are publicly unveiled at an art exhibit.  One reason I cherish this privilege is because this was something my sister, Kathi, used to do.  After she passed, Dan allowed me the opportunity of these special previews.

I can hardly begin to express my admiration when I view these pieces.  I have yet to find any of his work not to my liking.  In every new exhibit, there are pieces that move me to tears.  I see my past and my family in his art.  I see promise, comfort, friendship and inspiration as well.  I see a gift that will one day be the topic of discussion wherever art is being taught.

In Dan’s own words, he said about his latest work:

I compiled the new body of work into a video for you to view, if you would like. I paired my paintings with the beautiful song “Titanium” performed by Madilyn Bailey, which for me speaks to the way I constantly battle my own insecurities and doubts about my work or ideas. It also explains how I face these fears head on and overcome them. The actual work itself is all about accepting change in all of it’s many forms while growing and moving forward in life, with them. I hope that you enjoy the work and the experience of viewing it with song.

I encourage all of you to view this video.  I was very moved when I first saw it.  I will be turning 44 in just a few weeks.  I have vowed on my 50th birthday to own one of Dan’s paintings.

Dan and I often joke how we are constantly making each other cry; good tears, mind you.  We have never officially met, didn’t grow up in the same geographical area, but we have shared similarities, have uncanny ties to certain pieces of his work and we shared a love for my sister that will bind us for all times.

My goal is have to have Dan showcased in San Francisco.  Besides sharing his work, in person, on the West Coast, I would actually be able to attend his exhibit, and meet my talented friend in person.

Please feel free to share this video.  I’d love to hear your feedback after watching it.  If you would like to check out more of Dan’s work, please visit artbydangles.
