Moonlight on Sea is finished!


Moonlight on sea

Yes, Moonlight on Sea is the name of the project I showed you in my short video.
It is an oil painting of 100/160 cm.

This is the second time I am using a canvas in this size for a project, the first being in acrylic.
Oil painting is far more challenging.
Having said that, I love my work. Artists are given the liberty to feel like a child while acting like an adult…

Wishing all of my faithful followers & visitors a very warm healthy holiday!

The night tree


the-night-tree

Still very busy with the tree collection.
I have used here oil painting and extra strong gel medium to bring the tree to life. I love working with texture for specific effects on certain project.

Trees, sometimes especially at night make life beautiful and in a sense are even more alive.
This is a reminder that We are lucky to be surrounded by them day in day out!

Best wishes for a safe warm winter to all of you!

New project

New project

Working on a new project on 100/160 canvas.
This is the second canvas I am using in this size, the first being in acrylic.
Oil painting is far more challenging.
Having said that, I love my work. Artists are given the liberty to feel like a child while acting like an adult… I rarely share the beginnings of my projects, I’d rather show the end product, it kind of takes off the pressure as some can take as long as two years but for one reason or another this time was an exception maybe in order to celebrate my first oil painting on such a big scale…

The Happy Tree – New oil painting project finally finished!


the-happy-tree-oct-2016

It has been a long time since last post… being very busy with many painting projects.
I have switched momentarily to oil painting, love the texture but still use acrylic for specific effects on other projects which demand that quality, texture & movement.
The birth of this painting was magical. It reflects the joys of our daily routine which usually go unnoticed.
The tree collection is thriving…
This one is called Happy to bring trees to our notice & appreciation.
I guess you can call it a work of gratitude.
Trees make life beautiful, it’s alive, it grows, summer it gives shade, winter shelter from winds & storms, it (sometimes) nourishes, provides wood for all kind of purposes, gives oxygen, lightens our hearts in every aspect, decorates our outdoors, indoors, minds & souls,goes with the cycle of seasons a symbol of rebirth…
This is a reminder that We are lucky to be surrounded by them day in day out!

Fleeting moments of unadulterated silence


Fleeting moments

Fleeting moments

We have been given a late summer this year, yet my heart isn’t letting go of winter peels.
Joy struggles in the shadows, planning an escape that bounces off the walls of life. Of the mind.

Happiness is truly within.

Sun might enhance the rainbows of our soul, like contrast adding sharpness to a photo defining its contours but it isn’t the essential ingredient.

Yet, I inherently know delight lies in wait, lurks around the corner. A lifetime doesn’t vanish into oblivion.

I slow my pace in all good summer tradition, setting aside guilt (for imposing my will to those around me) living days moment by moment, listening to the pulses of nature, savouring every sound, celebrating the notion of nothingness surprised by the calmness that proceeds, appreciating the wonders of wildlife accompanying us wherever we are, on a daily basis gone unnoticed…

We are born to think motion is the only motor of survival, the only form of sanity but we forget to retire for a while from the hubbub to calm the nervous energy that comes with it.

We still have more than a month left. I know this might last no longer than the ink absorbed unto this page but I won’t forget so easily those fleeting moments of unadulterated silence & invite you to do the same🙂

P.s
A very pleasant summer to you all!!

Music in raindrops…


Raindrops...

While waiting in the car on a rainy day, words came accompanied by the rhythm of nature…

Pit pat, pit pat raindrops there you
sat
On the borders of my soul, composing music
as you roll.
Comforting bruises new & old, rocking me out
of my mould.
Turning nuisance into charm, when the curtains
are drawn,
Keeping sunshine at bay, eluding the realities
of night & day…

A promise is a promise… Tornado bigger version100/120 cm


Tornado

I promised a bigger version would be following…
I named it, Tornado. Made on a 100/120cm linen canvas.
Forces of nature are fascinating, it’s
a demonstration of raw power par excellence.
Having said that I’d rather stick to my canvas than approaching one of them.
Notice the movement & metallic colors used to convey the electrifying energy emanating from a stormy atmosphere.
Extra strong gel medium was used to produce the relief.
I want to take this opportunity to announce the opening of my new online shop on Saatchi Art (I encountered too many technical difficulties on Etsy when they lately changed their rules)
Will keep you updated as soon as I have the time to feed my account with photos of my painting collections.

Wishing all of you an amazing summer!
Thank you for your continual support, I don’t think I could have gotten that far…
