Rainbow Dolphins - A Colorful Tale

October 19th, 2015

Rainbow Dolphins - A Colorful Tale

Rainbow Dolphins swimming in rainbow-colored waves, pays tribute to the playful and joyful spirit of the dolphin, and inspired this artwork and story.


Rainbow Dolphins - A Colorful Tale


Once upon a curious
and most unusual day
in an ocean not so very far away
five dolphins
in their usual and contented way
jumped over waves
so happy in their play.

Quite suddenly a rainbow
arched across the sky
it must have been from the dolphins joy
reaching so very high.

The dolphins swam and laughed and
asked the rainbow to stay a while
as rainbows always made them smile
which made the rainbow smile, too
and glow with an even brighter hue.

Then the rainbow did something so enchanted
it simply had to be true
it plunged into the water
turning the waves
and dolphins into rainbows, too.

So remember
when joy reaches so high
into the sky
it turns into a rainbow
smile and ask it to stay
and let the magic flow through you
in happy healing waves of
red, orange, yellow, green, violet and
blue.

Story Art - Grapes Of Many Colors

This artwork of colorful grapes and leaves, in shades of green, mauve, pink, peach, lavender and purple, growing abundantly on vines, pays tribute to the amazing beauty and abundance of nature. And the artwork inspired the prose.

Grapes Of Many Colors art and prose by Carol Cavalaris

Sometimes I wonder
what the world would be like
if people lived and grew
with all the glory
and gusto
of grapes on a vine
each one unique
like a glowing orb
in its own universe
imperfectly perfect
never asking
am I the best one in the bunch
just growing
giving everything they've got
their beauty
their abundance
showing all their many colors
with wild abandon.

Romantic Story Art - Through My Door

This romantic painting of a man and woman kissing was inspired by the romance novel, 'Feel My Need', written by Carol Cavalaris, and is from the Passion Collection of art by Carol Cavalaris. The lyrics, which were inspired by the novel, were written by Carol Cavalaris and her singer/songwriter husband, L.J. Heart.


Through My Door Art by Carol Cavalaris. Lyrics by Carol Cavalaris and L.J. Heart.

She fell asleep within my arms last night
She fell in love some time before
But all her falling never brought her down
It only brought her through my door.

She spoke to me of things that few dare dream
Her words derived with care and choice
And as her loving sounds, took to the air
Warmth and beauty filled the void

And I love to have her near me
And I long to give her more
And as she pressed her breasts against me
I brought her through my door.

She felt weak and frightened when I held her near
She felt strong and also quite secure
But all her feeling only touched my heart
And brought her through my door.

And I love to have her near me
And I long to give her more
And as she pressed her breasts against me
I brought her through my door.



Romantic Fantasy Story Art - Sea Of Sorrows

Romantic Fantasy Story Art - Sea Of Sorrows

A romantic fantasy artwork of two lovers turned into swans inspired the story.


Sea Of Sorrows art and prose by Carol Cavalaris

An evil witch,
who didn't believe in love,
cast a spell over two young lovers,
turning them into black swans,
condemning them to
forever drift apart
on the sea of sorrows.

Through the darkest, coldest nights
season after season
storm after storm
only their song of longing
as faint as a whisper on the wind
carried their feelings to one another like a caress.

What the witch didn't know
Is that the power of love
can overcome even the strongest curse,
for the lovers never stopped caring and singing
and when they finally found one another
they rose above the dark green waters
ln an embrace that could never be broken again.

Romantic Fantasy Story Art - Captured

A romantic fantasy artwork of an eagle man embracing a swan woman, inspired this story.

Captured art and prose by Carol Cavalaris


She fell from the sky
a wounded bird
his helpless prey
a breath away
from eternity.

But deep within
his beastly heart
he felt the beating
of life
of love
of rapture
and knew it was he
who had been captured.

Story Art - Woman In The Poppy Hat

Story Art - Woman In The Poppy Hat

A young woman wearing a hat decorated with big red poppies, inspired this story.

Woman In The Poppy Hat art and prose by Carol Cavalaris

She remembers a field of red poppies
on that hot summer day
where she and her beloved lay.

Oh how they laughed and played.
She remembers how he picked the blossoms
gathering a love bouquet
placing them in her hat
in such a gentle way.

She remembers how he crossed his heart
and promised he would never go away.
And every summer when the poppies come
she remembers yesterday.


Life Of An Artwork - Eagle Red White Blue

Life Of An Artwork - Eagle Red White Blue

I've always found it interesting that the art I create has a life of its own. Like a child, I conceive it, nurture it, fret over it, love it with all my heart, and then at some point must release it into the world. And let the world have its way with it. Some art is adored, other art is ignored. And everything in-between. The Universe decides and I can only watch and hope for the best.

Eagle Red White Blue has had several exciting adventures so far. The art first became a print, and now resides in many homes around the world. It also resides on duvet covers, and pillows, shower curtains, tote bags and cell phones, going places and doing things I can't even imagine.

The art has been Blogged, Tweeted, Pinned, Facebooked, Instagramed, YouTubed, Linked, and yes, even used and abused in ways I don't want to know about. :o)

The Mountain put the art on a T-shirt, and it has traveled who knows where on people's bodies. The traveling didn't stop there, for a very patriotic veteran who loves eagles put the image on her vehicle as a car wrap. So it is now traveling faster than an eagle can fly. Then it landed on the ground, when a chalk artist was inspired to duplicate the image. He created a giant sidewalk drawing for a festival, to be enjoyed for only a moment in time before rain washed the eagle away forever.

Yes, Eagle Red White Blue has had a very exciting life so far, and we are both looking forward to the next adventure.

Story Art - Spirit Birds On Dream Catcher

Story Art - Spirit Birds On Dream Catcher

This dream catcher within a gnarled piece of wood, surrounded by spirit birds, is artwork and prose I created in June of 2012, to honor the passing of my husband and soul mate, LJ. I have been traveling my path of grief and healing for several years now, flying low and high along the way.

Over the years, each of these spirit birds has appeared to me in some way, physically coming into my world, invading my dreams, making themselves visible in symbols, all undeniable. And when my heart is open to their message, they bring courage, strength, hope, awareness, and even joy.

Dream Catcher - Spirit Birds, art and prose by Carol Cavalaris.

Spirit Birds
You come to me
From places unknown
Showing me I am not alone
Carrying your message
From somewhere high above
On magnificent wings of healing, hope, and love.

Eagle Spirit - symbol of power, courage and rebirth. You are the divine connection between creation and earth, carrying me to new heights of renewal and self-worth.

Hawk Spirit - symbol of intuition and insight, teaching me to trust my instinct, to know what is right, to be grateful for my talents and gifts and grow in the light

Falcon Spirit - symbol of possibilities and vision, you are my light that shines in the darkness, helping me see and realize my own dreams.

Osprey Spirit - symbol of healing energies and harmony, teaching me how to take care of and nurture myself, to embrace new opportunities and others with an open heart.

Raven Spirit - symbol of protection and renewal, warning me when danger is near and soothing my fear, teaching me that death, destruction, and darkness are not the end, but the beginning of rebirth, re-building, and new life

Owl Spirit - symbol of prophecy and wisdom, teaching me to see and understand what may be hidden, showing me how to embrace the changes that are to come.


Rainbow Rose for my beloved, LJ.

September 26th, 2015

Rainbow Rose for my beloved, LJ.

The rose is a symbol of love, and so I have done this Rose series in some of the shades of love we experience in a lifetime. I added the butterflies because love is shared by two.

Colors include: Antique Rose, celebrating love remembered forever, Pastel Rose, celebrating first love, Purple Rose, celebrating the passion of love, and Rainbow Rose, celebrating the many colors of love, that can be as vibrant as a rainbow, and as momentary.

Rainbow Rose and Butterflies is also a tribute to the love of my life, LJ, who passed 9 years ago. Today would have been our 37th wedding anniversary. We were married on a big brass bed, literally. With the minister standing at the foot and LJ and I kneeling on the bed, saying our vows. And that was the beginning of a very colorful relationship.




Rainbow Rose and Butterflies art and prose by Carol Cavalaris

Rainbow Rose
your colorful petals
radiating a vibrant glow
how magnificently you grow
as if you have
captured a
momentary rainbow.

For LJ
Forever
In my heart.

Story Art - Beneath The Acacia Tree

Story Art - Beneath The Acacia Tree

This artwork and story is a tribute to two beautiful white lions, Kato, and lioness, Kenia. Brother and sister, these magnificent white lions grew up happily together until a sudden illness took them both. They were only 6, and Kato went first, and Kenia followed him a week later. I created this artwork to honor their beauty and spirits, and because I like to think of them, together forever, beneath the acacia tree.

Beneath The Acacia Tree, art and prose by Carol Cavalaris

Two white lions
Sleep peacefully
My precious ones
And dream of
Your glory days
Of growing together
In the summer sun
So young and free
Like wild flowers
Beneath the acacia tree.

Your spirit so grand
Fills the clouds and sky
You will always be
A part of the river
And the land.
Growing together
So young and free
Like wild flowers
Beneath the acacia tree
