We are the
Blue Earth Society
and this is our age
The Earth Is Blue
by Eric Needle, co-founder, curator,
Blue Earth Society
Greetings, Bienvenue, and welcome to the Blue Earth Society's
online virtual gallery. The BES is an association of fine artists
brought together by a common desire to make and exhibit art that
is positive. In our rapidly escalating global climate dominated
by war, politics and the shadow of impending conflict, we've united
to created art that is about life.
Art creates a personal reaction to each work we see. It can bring
hope, it can light up a room. It is a language unto itself, crossing
boundaries of culture, language and nationality. With a media
focused on gloom and doom, daily crimes of violence, intent to
sell us the latest fad diet, workout machine and beauty product,
we see the role of fine art shifting. Art can renew us. It can
focus us on what's really important and ground us back to reality.
Explore the different areas of the site. The gallery
houses a group show, changing monthly. Artist
galleries contain shows and collections of work, some new, some
archived from past exhibits. Le Livre Overt
is the "Open Book". We record our thoughts, writings
and ramblings. It is open to you the reader, to contribute to.
Enjoy the art and contact us if it moves you. Thank you again
for visiting us.
Blue Earth Society seeks artists, writers and poets with a passion
for advancing humanity through art. Send us a liine, email Eric.
The Dance of Life
by Rachel Golub
When I paint, I go beyond what the eyes visibly see. I feel
the flow of infinite energy, the continual renewal of the universe.
Molecules, atoms and cells always in motion, nothing is real and
still as it visually appears. Life is simply flowing energy. That
is what I paint.
I don’t use a paintbrush, but instead find it more exciting
to experience the fluidity of the flowing paint as I pour it onto
the canvas. Sometimes I roll the paint, again, feeling the flowing
movements of motion.
My paintings may appear chaotic and uncontrolled to some, but
to the contrary, I guide the paint in the direction I want it
to go, while at the same time, the paint guides me. I enjoy the
feeling of freedom as I glide the stick over the canvas in various
liquid dancing movements.

Meet the Artist –
by Joose Hadley
Michael Golub is an unusual artist as artists go. Almost every
stereotype which could be applied to artists in general just doesn’t
stick with Michael. If one plotted the individuals of such a diverse
group on a bell curve, he would most likely place on the end with
the “over-achievers” and the “type-A’s”;
the end where goals are achieved and life is good.
Michael is an artist who also happens to be a lawyer. He got
his J.D. Law degree at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale
in 1990 and works as an Attorney and Certified Family Law Mediator
in Orlando. When asked about how he felt about supporting his
art with another career, he replied, “Painting is just something
I need to do for some reason to complete the picture. I’m
happy that I don’t need to think about whether anyone will
buy a painting when I paint it. I do love to sell them, of course.
But “sale-ability” is not a consideration when I paint.
