Eli Cedrone's efficiency of brush stokes makes the drama of this lovely woman's stance and the light on her turned head cascade across her cheek as morning kiss. How often have we all taken for granted the quiet reflective moments when observing a lover, a child, a friend only to return to them years later in our mind's eye...wishing we were back there in that blissful unconsciousness of being; doing all of the daily things we did without thinking: tie a sash, brush errant locks of hair, run our hand lightly across the peach fuzz on an arm. Eli's painting takes us to that moment of commonality, the treasure of the every day. It allows us to freeze frame the loves in our life: current, past & future in one holy place. It reminds us to really look when presented with the gift of our everyday lives; to see the light, the shadow, the hue...memorizing and imprinting each precious detail. It reminds us those moments are fleeting and to hold them dear. It reminds us of the temporal nature of now and the everlasting nature of our past and eternal nature our future. Eli's painting can be seen at or at our physical location at 16 S. Palm, Sarasota FL
