Mother/newborn I video


A moment of grace dedicated to all mothers in the world.
Their patience and unconditional love is nothing short of miraculous!
My first video of one of my paintings. I find it is easier to show details that way . This one belongs to the mother/newborn collection I am still busy with.
A realistic painting I sketched in 2012 and picked back up in 2015.
The energy between mother and newborn and the display of light and shadow was a priority.
They play a major role in the atmosphere of this exceptional moment captured on my camera.
Mastering different techniques is a very enriching experience.
That is why I continue experimenting as much as possible.

P.S I have no idea why the video came out so long I have a hard time to see it in full on my laptop but on my phone I do so please excuse the technicalities as I am still new at this.
Thank you!

The bonfire. A glimpse into my working space


There still is a lot more work to be done on this one but I wanted to keep you updated with the stages it’s going through.
Here, I am using extra strong gel medium to even out the texture and “nooks and crannies” of each flame which is a work of patience that I’ll have to take in my stride especially after just recovering from the flue. This is the last project of my bonfire collection.

You can check the first ones in this blog by typing in the search sidebar Bonfire and scrolling down to check the four…

Please excuse any mistakes in this post as it is the first time I am not using my laptop to do it.

It’s a great relief to have worked out how to be able to post from anywhere.

Any suggestions or tips would be welcomed and truly helpful ☺

Run run dark beauty…


horses-sketch

This poem is dedicated to all those who have overcome adversity & climbed higher than humanly possible.
The photo is the sketch of a project I am busy with. Horses are my passion & I might have gotten stuck with this longer than I should for fear of not giving justice to this magnificent animal & the tremendous power exuding from it.
Keep warm! Hope you enjoy the poem. Feedback is always very welcome 🙂

Run run my race horse over the fences, hedges & highest walls, take leaps,
skip over rivers, mane blowing in the winds, undeterred… nothing stopping you.

Run run my stallion,spread the energy, black shining coat glistening under the effort
of raw power. Long gone are your days of uncertainty, battles over frail beginnings.

Run run dark beauty, never be afraid of winning, fly & never turn back, you were a
conqueror at your first faltering steps…

Run run my baby, I will celebrate your victories, as close to my heart,
as bright as the stars, as magical as your existence.

Sleep sleep my foal you’ve earned the miracle of tomorrow!

Natural Organic gluten free Sesame & pumpkin seeds snack delicacy


Naturalpumpkin-sesame-seeds-delicacy-2017-2-1

This recipe is even easier than the last one I just posted.
No nuts to crack open.
In my twenty plus years in macrobiotic I was taught that sesame seeds give more calcium to the body than milk considering that milk gives but takes a lot away in the process, & pumpkin cleans out the liver.
This might give you the extra incentive to try out these recipes considering it’s a perfect alternative to the ready made junk we all use today.

Enjoy it! Let me know, I’d very much appreciate the feedback:)

Ingredients.
———–

1. 2 Tbsp. Organic whole sesame seeds (you can use the regular white one too)
2. 1 Tbsp. Organic rice syrup (honey or any other sweetener)
3. 1 Tbsp. fresh organic ginger juice (that’s optional. I don’t always have the patience to grate & squeeze out the juice but I like the sharp edge it gives to it)

Enjoy it with a hot cup of tea coffee or herbal beverage 🙂

Its taste is a reminder of the Nutella spread but crunchier & fresher.

Celebrating the beginning of 2017 with a new painting… The Hand tree.


hand tree 2017

125/75 cm.
The idea is to have the hand prints of your children or grandchildren professionally made.
The decor is suited to the beautiful world a child should find himself in.
Colorful and surrounded by nature.
Some of the materials I used are recycled products I plan for my art.
Each hand hangs off a cloud.
On the left corner, you’ll notice a clothes line with pegs attached & two red strings from which twin baby hands might hang from…
Please scroll down for close ups, they will show you more details.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of my followers and visitors for the likes comments and support since the opening of this account.
P.s
My excuses for the reflection on the photos, I find it always an issue with darker backgrounds.
