Yes, Virginia, There Still Are Gold Prospectors

Yes, Virginia, There Still Are Gold Prospectors











Buena Park, CA (PRWEB) September 8, 2006

It surprises many that people still prospect for gold in these modern days. Most believe that prospecting went the way of the cowboy, locomotive and the covered wagon. But with at least two gold prospecting programs on television, several dedicated trade shows held around the county and a magazine in the mainstream, gold prospecting is as popular as ever.

But now it is a hobby.

With the launch of www.WriteToProspectors.com, recreational gold prospectors now have a community forum to swap stories, gold prospecting techniques and metal detecting equipment.

“The website takes advantage of the latest in cutting-edge web design and gives recreational prospectors a place to gather and share photos of gold specimens, reviews of the latest equipment and recaps of recent club outings,” said Brian Robinson, the site’s administrator in a statement. “We have had people from as far away as Australia and the Netherlands visit the site in just the first few hours. Forget bird flu, the world still has gold fever!”

In addition to forums (or message boards) there are articles detailing the history of past gold rushes, famous prospectors and historic mining equipment.

Mr. Robinson continued, “The image many people have of prospectors is the old Forty-Niner. You know, the ragged man with a donkey and pan who headed west in search of riches but either died at the end of a gun or bottom of a bottle of rot-gut whiskey. Today you will find whole families enjoying a day panning for gold along a river or metal detecting for coins after a picnic at the park.”

The site is fluid so it is accessible by a wide range of computer screens and enables a variety of gold prospecting information to be visible on one page such as news, polls, photos, rss feeds and message forums.

Art and Life in Synchronicity: Still Life Painting Captures Excitement of Odyssey’s Black Swan Coin Discovery

Art and Life in Synchronicity: Still Life Painting Captures Excitement of Odyssey’s Black Swan Coin Discovery











Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 31, 2007

Relics of the Sea is a timely release by Boston fine artist, Melody Phaneuf. Phaneuf created the 32″ x 24″ oil painting to be both a decorative still life and an allegory of our inner self, of treasures we have yet to discover. Phaneuf is well known for symbolic analogies in her paintings.

Evocative of a world of shipwrecks, treasure and discovery, Relics of the Sea appeals to marine enthusiasts and collectors alike. “I wanted the painting to communicate on a mystical as well as a familiar level,” says Phaneuf. “I chose subtle lighting and color which would give the painting a misty, mysterious essence. This sets the stage for a meditative, interior quality in which revelation can unfold.”

The recent recovery of the Black Swan by Odyssey Marine Exploration unveiled riches swallowed up by the sea long ago. The saga is still unfolding as experts aim to discover the shipwreck’s identity. “It’s an exquisite synchronicity,” states Phaneuf. “I love the ways that life reflects art.”

Relics of the Sea is available for purchase and can be viewed at www.MelodyTheArtist.com/relics

Melody Phaneuf works at Boston’s historic Fenway Studios. She has exhibited at the National Arts Club in New York, Galerie Herouet in Paris and with Art du Monde in Japan. Her work is regularly displayed at the Guild of Boston Artists, 162 Newbury Street, Boston, MA.

A high-resolution file of Relics of the Sea for print reproduction is available upon request.

For more information please contact Melody Phaneuf at 800-771-6464.
