Wrist trouble & The motherhood collection


Mother-newborn moment 19.10. 2015  working further details with oil paint-1-

This is a work belonging to the motherhood collection (in oil painting as a first!) I have been busy with for a while. I wanted desperately to get back to painting but hurt my wrist yesterday. Being the receiver of various successful homeopathy treatments for the past twenty five years I had in my first aid kit Arnica 200k and took it not really expecting immediate results and to my surprise ten minutes went by with an easing of the pain.
Today I left the stiff bandage on and was glad to find I could use my hand carefully nevertheless managing to tuck in a few hours of work!

Do not take my medical advice, I am not a doctor, just wanted to share this surprising outcome.
Wishing all my followers a very good week continuation 🙂

This photo was especially taken for all my talented artist followers.
I believe the artist captured the essence of texture there!
My best wishes for a very good end of week & relaxing weekend 😉

Life has settled back to raining 🙂
We slowly find ourselves getting back to our routine with new decision-making in order to improve, advance and grow. So my apologies for making myself scarce of late but I need time to study, paint and the only time I’ve got to liking & commenting are the posts I find in my mailbox (I don’t understand why they do while others don’t).
I have not forgotten any of my followers and go on appreciating your concern throughout my blogging experience which I hope will pick up once things get more settled & I get more accustomed to the pattern of the days.
I know it’s classical to want new goals after a good break but hard to follow up so I have to play it moment by moment & see if I can keep up to that determination, the one that gave me strength to decide in the first place.

My thanks goes toward your constant support!

Unique Film of Pierre-Auguste Renoir Painting (1919) Including two others of A.Rodin & C.Monet


I found this rare piece, a pure treasure from the blogger http://ladonasmusicstudio.com/ and couldn’t resist the urge to share it with all of you!
I added two other very short films of two monstrous artists… Auguste Rodin and Claude Monet
Enjoy it 🙂

Pierre-Auguste Renoir – Filmed Painting at Home (1919)

This is unique footage of the great Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919).

He is seen at home, working on a canvas.

I’m just astonished it exists – I never imagined I’d see film of him painting – you even get a sense of his method of applying the oil to the canvas.

Also present in this footage are Renoir’s youngest son Claude, 14, who stands by to arrange the palette and place the brush in his father’s hand, and Sacha Guitry, the man who made this film in 1915 and who appears midway through the film sitting down and talking with the artist.

Enjoy!

Auguste Rodin – Filmed Sculpting in his Studio (1915)

Published on 26 Aug 2013
This is unique film of the father of modern sculpture, Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), working in his studio in Paris in 1915.

What is particularly interesting in the various pieces of footage is seeing — close up – the artist’s process with marble.

There are four segments of film:

[1] The artist walking up and down the steps of a monumental columned building, and inspecting the structure

[2] Rodin posing top-hatted in a garden

[3] The sculptor coming out of the then derelict C18 Hôtel Biron, which the artist used as his studio

[4] Rodin sculpting in his studio

Enjoy!

Claude Monet – Filmed Painting Outdoors (1915)

Published on 26 Aug 2013
This is unique film of French Impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926), painting outdoors, ‘en plein air’, in his garden at Giverny.

The footage is in two segments.

Firstly we see the artist outdoors talking to a gentleman.

Then we see Monet painting a water lily-padded pond, a subject for which he is most famed.

Enjoy!
