Tomyé: Living Artist

Encouraging Art Engagement

” Of The People, For The People “

Food lines, in the best of times, are at popular cafes. For example Aunt Mary’s Cafe relocated next to the once popular, now closed after opening in 1939, Hoopers Chocolate.  Returning to Aunt Mary’s, the address is 4640 Telegraph Av., off 46th st.  Oakland CA. The location is in the turn-around Temescal District.  Once inside the Cafe, the public also relishes Artworks which enhance the environment.  At least Tomyé, Living Artist believes in engaging the senses of people.  As well as smelling sumptuousness visitors can see and respond to her figurative Gouache Paintings, Enamel on Copper image and Fused Glass Slumped Art referencing “Perspective”, “Contemplation”, “Sound Bites” etc.  Such things as these, typically swirl around the tables in conversation.  The eighteen Artworks on view through Tue. Nov. 28, 2017, every day except major holidays, 8AM – 3PM, are worthy of a write-up.  Checking the quest book, near the restrooms, one viewer noted Tomyé Art is “Dope”

You have to know American Slang to relish this comment.

Directly contact the Artist (510) 452-0403 or tomyegouache@sbcglobal.net

P. S. …knowing the cost of Art can seem rich, payment plans are noted.

Some Youth Get It

No. 1 Chakra 72 dpiBlack Lives Matter No. 1 Crown Chakra

3:16 during the afternoon of Jan. 12, 2015, 9 days after coming out the better side of a cold.

Some youth get it, twenty -30 year olds.  Their head is in the correct place.  Vulnerability is not what makes them feel comfortable. Keeping their arms at their sides or as protection across their chest, protects alignment of Chakras.

What, you’re surprised a Black youth knows about Chakras. Next time you see a Black youth with a hat on, not a hoodie per se, shielding himself from the outdoor elements, nor a cap to stroke his favorite sports team, but a righteously pleasing hat, give him a compliment.  He’s likely to say something thoughtful after his Thank You.  Yes, manners come forth.

Don’t Let Your Head (Crown) Chakra, not get nourished and stay balanced.

Black Lives Matter!
