In this incarnation of our virtual art gallery we have taken the opportunity of adding some background to the family history as well as some access to our ideas on art and philosophy in general. Here too are some pop-out links to a bit of biography on and opinion from the various artists Anne Muller, Jo-Anne Yelen, Pam Muller and Diana Muller, and some background opinion from me, Etienne Muller.We went to the bother of writing it so I hope some of you actually read it.
Some of you may not be aware that we have a publishing arm http://askifpress.com
While compiling these pages I realised that, from the viewpoint of our guests, Brushwood might seem like a rather vital and active centre, and I suppose it is, incorporating, as it does, so many varied areas of interest and activity, what with the art, the writing, the poetry, the music, the homoeopathy, the hand building of the edifice, the boat-building, the sports, the invention of games, etc.
From time to time I will be updating the poetry section with new work and I have posted a page with cartoons, just for fun. These will be changed from time to time.
I got to wondering how we found the time for it all, especially since we watch six hours of TV every day as well. I guess it has something to do with the fact that it has taken us 30 years to establish the physical place, and thousands of hours of practice in our artistic lives to hone our skills.
Sometimes I regret that life is so short. There are so very many things that one may wish to try, yet to become truly expert at anything of sophistication one has to specialise, and forgo the perfecting of other skills and interests.
How fortunate we are though that we have been able to immerse ourselves so freely in creative pursuits; to be able to embrace the positive stresses of facing a new blank page every day rather than facing the drudgery of repetition.
To all of you who have made this possible by supporting our creative endeavours: you have our whole-hearted gratitude. We only hope that you have received as much joy through the years from our works as we have had in creating them.
