Simple Sunday with Artist Steven Chmilar

Welcome to Simple Sunday!


Tonight we are featuring a piece of art by artist, Steven Chmilar, from Canada.

Steven Douglas Chmilar was born in Grande Prairie, Alberta on December 25th, 1979. He started drawing at the age of two and continued drawing obsessively until the age of thirteen, when he got his first guitar. For over the next decade, Steve pursued music primarily and continued drawing as a hobby.

After recording two full length original albums with the Calgary-based band “the Villains” and winning a national songwriting contest in the spring of 2006, Steve remained a professional musician by trade while continuing to draw and experiment with painting. He then relocated to a deserted rural house 45 minutes outside of Vernon, BC in fall of 2007 to focus on painting.

Since moving to Victoria in the spring of 2008, Steve has been building his collection of oil paintings as well as drawings in pen and graphite. Steve has been painting full-time since the success of his debut show at the Massey Gallery in the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria in November 2011. He currently lives in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

  2. THE WONDERERS

    *

    Alone
    In this vast place
    Of no where
    Cold and wantin
    A roof over my head
    No land to see
    Except here
    Just us four
    The ole man and we
    Wonder just where
    Did he get that robe
    It looks very warm and cozy
    Wonder if hed share
    If we catch a fish
    Know he would share
    You think
    Why are there leaves
    Just on his side
    And not here
    Looks like
    Hes even drinkin a glass of wine
    Are so it would seem
    And eatin
    An awesome meal
    With out a care
    That we are here
    Barrow of cheese
    A shady
    Big knife
    And a mirrow
    Wonder what do he see
    Hes got it made the ole man
    Yet so do we
    We got
    A new start
    You me
    And baby makes three
    When the ole man is gone
    There will be no more
    We will flower and make new the ole

    ISLE OF CONTRASTS

    Inspired by “Island” by Steven Chmilar

    Sun rose on their small world
    to light a brand new day.
    Adrift on desert shoal,
    contrasts of the past way.

    Aboriginal spot;
    primitives know it well.
    Natural adjustment.
    By Mother’s rules they dwell.

    Sophisticated tools
    brought from an advanced world
    serves needs of transformed man
    by complex skills unfurled.

    Their symbiotic tree
    both unites and divides.
    They get along just fine
    while privacy provides.

  4. Thank you Art by Steven Chmilar
    The Last Island

    As the tree above viewed
    One side with leaves one side bare
    Beneath human the same breathing air
    Is it the beginning or the end without clothes they wear
    The end with only an island a child to bare
    As the waters guide them toward the sunset fair
    Gently moving as sitting in an easy chair
    Gray cloud lifting warmth feel as a new beginning care

    I’m lost,on this island
    In with many thoughts.
    I’m lost,on this island
    In frightening thoughts.
    I’m lost,on this island
    In sad thoughts.
    I’m lost, on this island
    In upsetting thoughts.
    I’m lost,on this island
    In fearful thoughts.
    I’m lost,on this island
    In many ways.
    I’m lost,on this island
    In many ways.
    I’m lost,on this island
    In my mind.
    I’m lost, on this island
    will I be found.

    I love how you’ve expressed the multitude of emotions we feel. Sometimes we do feel as though we’re on an island and experiencing so much by ourselves. Wonderful poetic interpretation. :love: :love: :love:

  7. TOWARD SIMPLICITY

    On this morning
    as the day begins,
    awakened together
    with a newly risen sun,
    a certain peace overtakes us
    and consumes our every thought,
    our love within the ocean breezes,
    leaving us needing or wanting
    absolutely nothing more
    than what we already have;
    all those complications
    that we’re leaving behind,
    those things of life
    we thought we needed
    but really don’t mean anything
    and only weighed us down.

    And on this morning,
    the sun rising anew,
    sweet paradise
    cradles our hearts
    as together we view
    the sunrise and the future
    and what lies ahead,
    relying upon each other
    within a life of pure simplicity.

    A great vision of simplification you saw here Barbara, something so many of us desire by the time we reach later middle age at which point we have often accumulated an overwhelming baggage of detritus. 8-O :!: :-D :love:
