 Denis Brown's outstanding calligraphy
is presented together:hundreds of high quality images
including enlargements to actual 
size or bigger, plus the artist's personal commentary,
anecdotes and in-depth analyses."
I just received my complimentary copy
and must thank Denis!
It is a calligrapher's dream come true!
His gestual lettering & artwork is breathtaking !
You can also admire  & study his work for hours with no internet cost.Worth the investment!
Best quality images and enlargements.
Bravo to Denis for being a Pioneer and
inspiring us by sharing his work!

(Hopefully a Publisher will grab the opportunity and 
produce the paper version of this
Master Calligrapher's work!)

Quotes for Gardeners
and Lovers of the Green Way
Compiled by 
Michael P. Garofalo 

We seem to have lost contact with the
earlier, more profound functions of art, which have always had to 
do with personal 
and collective empowerment,
personal growth, communion
with this world, 
and the search for what lies beneath and above this world.
 ~ Peter London,  No More Second Hand Art


Art attempts to find in the universe, in matter as well as in the facts of life, what is fundamental,
enduring, essential.
-   Saul Bellow

All gardening is landscape painting.
   -  Alexander Pope


Beauty is the adjustment of all parts proportionately so that one  cannot 
add or subtract or change without impairing
the harmony of the whole.
      -  Leon B. Alberti 


Every garden is unique with a multitude of 
choices in soils,plants and themes.
Finding your garden theme is as easy as seeing what brings a smile to your face.
 -  Theresa Watkins, Gardening With Soul

Fine art is that in which the hand, the head, 
and the heart of man go together.
          -   John Ruskin


The garden must first be prepared in the soul first
or else it will not flourish.
    -  Proverb from England

Gardens are the result of a collaboration
between art and nature.
    -  Penelope Hobhouse

To some, gardening is therapy for the mind. 
   Art is therapy for my soul. 
   -  Reno

see more images or
Mira Calligraphiae Monumenta

In garden arrangement,
as in all other 
kinds of decorative work, one has not only to acquire a knowledge of what to do,
but also to 
gain some wisdom in perceiving what it is well to let alone.
 -  Gertrude Jekyll


Painting is closely related to gardening
but closer still is poetry.
-   Robert Dash



The struggle against
a purpose in art is always a struggle against the
moral tendency 
in art - against its subordination to morality. 

Art for art's sake means,
Let morality go to the Devil. 
~Friedrich Nietzsche
