In a series of paintings created by Sukey Bryan, all of the celestial nuances fuse over shapes of drift ice and flow through pools of freshwater in conversation with stirs of clouds. They colour the uncompromising traits of nature, standing as monuments to the shifts in climate and to the evolving life of the planet. Sukey Bryan is the Gold Artist of the ArtAscent “Blue” Call For Artists! Read about this artist in the Blue edition of ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal.
I love BLUE.
Blue; reminds me of home.
Azure blue reflections painted my childhood’s oceans.
Oceans that glimmer with dad’s hue.
Just like my eyes.
“Blue,” the name everyone had taken me for and my eyes…
Beginning with a short, emotional poem, Alex Steiner paints the story of Blue, the ode to her father who bequeathed her an ocean of memories and an endless lake of life lessons. “I love BLUE,” says the writer as she sophisticatedly draws the reader into her lexemic play of tiering metaphors and evocations, all drenched in a particular shade of azure. Gold Artist of the ArtAscent “Blue” call for entry. To see the full body of work and profile, grab a copy of the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal “Blue” issue.
I honestly believe ArtAscent is among the best of the quality arts and literary magazines available today.

Each time I read through an issue of ArtAscent, my mind opens up a bit more as to what art can be, what writing can be, and to how the two can enter into a dialogue together. To explore the different ways reader/writer and artist/viewer can converse with each other.
