Through art Carolyn Beehler continues to explore the places she loves after her travels. Carolyn turns post-travel blues into positive new perspectives. Enlightened by the lives of people across the world, her artworks remind us that travel is more than escapism, that we should see new places and artifacts with extra detail and to fully absorb them until they become a part of us. Adventures that are slow, examined and permeated are always better than the hurried tours. Art and travel promotes improved, longstanding relationships with people and cultures. It’s true what Agnes Repplier said: “The impulse to travel is one of the hopeful symptoms of life.”
A feeling echoes: that you’re not alone. Through art, an idea, a nuance, a disposition, when highlighted, glows to warm others. It isn’t easy to deal with the metric tons of present day problems, anywhere in the world, but as an act of communicative support, art reminds us that we’re in this together. You are not alone, even in solitude.

Taoism, poets and artists teach us that strength should always be complimented by softness. If you resist too much, you will break; nothing is so strong as gentleness. The muted colors and thoughtful contours by Jarek Puczel are twice as tender and twice as intimate. Silken eyes by Miguel Devia and Roos van der Vliet makes us think longer, more fluidly. The calming and delicate air of Karoline Kroiss smoothes out the roughest edges of our world. These artworks reminds us to soften our hardened hearts, so that life is a little lighter.
