RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory & Ernest Disney-Britton

We are still enjoying perfect days in Key West, Florida, reading a book at the pool; dinner on the beach; and taking long walks on sunny days that are between 70 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit. However, we know that you are interested in art, so today we're spotlighting one of our favorites, British artist Michael Cook. This week, we introduced him as our INSPIRE ME! Artist for February 2018, and after you'd have the time to explore his work, you'll agree that his work should be in your collection too. Cook sees his work as fitting into "the British Romantic and Visionary traditions," and you can see the influence of Neo-Romantics such as William Blake. Learn more about collecting Michael Cook's visionary works at: hallowed-art.co.uk.
