If you are an artisan who works in wood or includes tree imagery in your work, or a musician or poet who does material on trees then this event should be right in your neck of the woods in a manner of speaking.

Emily says that sometimes she has to really think about how a piece of art should be done and other times it just flows out like a vision. A gift from the muses if you will or as she put it in a recent interview for Kindred Images "Sometimes things are easy enough to just start showing up on the canvas until they become complete."
Such was the case with this untitled work shown. It just started to flow out onto the canvas as if it was somehow meant to be. We ran a contest afterwards for awhile to see if someone could help us come up with a name for the piece but alas no entries were made although some people commented that there was so much symbology at work in it that finding an appropriate name was a daunting task indeed.
As for myself it seems to speak of the cycle of life, death and rebirth with the black birds (crows or ravens?) In the branches of the dead tree and the earth mother figure below near the flowing water and a pregnant belly about to bring forth new life.
Shortly after this painting was done we were vending at an event at The Bath House on White Rock Lake in Dallas called FlowFest put on by Earth Rhythms, an organization which we are donating underwriters of. While there a young woman saw the painting and left, returning later with a gentleman to whom she pointed it out saying something that sounded like. Do you see? This is it! To which he nodded knowingly and quickly purchased the painting asking Em' to set it aside to be picked up later after the event and indeed it left with them that day.
When works like this come and go it leaves us to wonder. Was this painting specifically meant for this young couple for them to find on this day? What meaning did it have for them? Would they be keeping it or would it be a gift for someone they knew who would know exactly what it meant?
Sometimes the Muse comes into our lives and gives us that little spark of creativity so that we may make something that will touch the lives of others in ways we may never understand. Such is one of the many mysteries of life that we enjoy exploring and sharing...

Friends, neighbors and people we haven't met yet but look forward to becoming future friends with. :) It has come to our attention that some folks out there might have some of Eme's works and want to get in touch with her to see about collecting more or commissioning a new piece but may have trouble determining who they are looking for based on the signature on the piece. So, here's a post with most of the possible misreadings of her signature and an explanation of how to read a signed Emily Dewbre-Young piece of art for future reference.
If you have a painting or other artwork and the signature, usually in the lower right corner, looks like it may say Dewbre with a number and a paw print next to it then this is likely the artist you are looking for. The signature sometimes might seem to read as Dewbrey, Dewbry, Dewbres, Dewbreo, Dewbrell or Dewbree. The number will represent the year the original artwork was created. For example 10 for 2010, 11 for 2011 etc. If you have one that does not include the number and paw print it could very likely be one of her early works from the nineteen nineties.
Anyway, that's the gist of it so happy collecting! :)

There was this world famous painter. In the prime of her career, she started losing her eyesight. Fearful that she might lose her life as a painter, she went to see the best eye surgeon in the world.
After several weeks of delicate surgery and therapy, her eyesight was restored. The painter was so grateful that she decided to show her gratitude by repainting the doctor's office.
Part of her work included painting a gigantic eye on one wall. When she had finished her work, she held a press conference to unveil her latest work of art: the doctor's office.
During the press conference, one reporter noticed the eye on the wall, and asked the doctor, "What was your first reaction upon seeing your newly painted office, especially that large eye on the wall?"
To this, the eye doctor responded, "I said to myself 'Thank God I'm not a proctologist.'"
