Leave Your Hat On – model Soleil Sinclair – Photo by Guest Artist Drake (Dragon) Sinclair

 

THIS IS THE FIRST of a new segment to be featured on this Art Blog: of guest artists/photographers & models.

I have posted photographs of Soleil before, all taken by Drake Sinclair, but only as an adjunct to drawings of my own. This time, it is exclusively the Guest Artist and Model’s space.

I will also be featuring some of Drake’s paintings in the near future, so please keep an eye out.

Drake and Soleil live in Arizona USA, on a property called 42 Spirits Community, which they both established recently. More on that in another later article.

Please search “Soleil” on this site if you will, for more.

 

INVITATION TO ARTISTS & MODELS.

BTW: Please contact me by clicking on “Contact” at the top of the page, if you are interested in being considered for exhibiting on my Art Blog (Artists & Models alike). My Art Blog is a labour of love – I make no money from it, nor want to. But it receives about 1,000 to 2,000 page views per day (tallied from 10am each day). The tally has been over 300,000 page views in the last 6 months).

If you are interested in appearing as a model on this Blog  and are  in the Sunshine Coast area, Qld, Australia), or passing through, by all means get in touch. As with the photo  here (and other nudes on this site), you can “leave you hat on” and remain anonymous if you wish. All shapes and sizes welcome, and preferably ages 40, 50, 60 plus. Everyday, natural people also very welcome, not just professional models. So if you have never tried it before (“Life Photography” modelling), maybe give it a go, as I did with life modelling a few years back. Was a great experience (search “Art Bungee Jumping” on this site). Or, just do it across the miles,  as Soleil has done. Distance is no  real barrier these days. Cheers, Dennis.

“Bridge of Flooding Dreams” revisited – photo-art copyright Dennis Mealor (as usual, no Photoshop)

 

WHEN I SEE THIS PHOTO, it takes me back to my escape from the 2013 Bundaberg flood, when my home was inundated. Residents had about an hour to get out before a deluge of water hit North Bundaberg like a Tsunami. They all had their cars, and took off to higher ground. I was unable to drive away, due to my visual impairment from eye trauma years before. The bridge was closed to traffic and pedestrians, as it was deemed unsafe. But I had to get out, and fast.

So I ducked under the police tape, and walked to safety. Not a soul was on the bridge as I walked. It was an eerie feeling. All I could hear was the rising rush of water under me. But when I reached about half way, I knew there was no going back. And I was going to be ok on the higher bank of the Burnett River. To this day, I still have the occasional “flood nightmare.” But they are getting fewer and fewer. Whew. Scary times. Not unlike this photo (taken after the flood), the flood turned my life upside-down.
