Turbulences soon coming up in bigger version… & opening of new online shop at Saatchi Art


Proudly presenting…
Turbulences. 30/30cm 3.1/2 cm deep.
Forces of nature always fascinated me, tornadoes are one of them.
A demonstration of raw power par excellence.
Having said that I’d rather stick to my canvas than approaching one of them.

Please scroll down for close ups…
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.

Having had a good feedback on this small version, my next project will be a much bigger one…

Thank you all so much for your continual support.
Your visits, likes & comments are most valuable to me!

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.





Purple rose. A new addition!



I have so little time to post with all the painting, that today I’m going to post as much as possible ­čÖé
Best wishes for a wonderful weekend!

This is another addition to the Zen flower collection.
Including close ups of brush strokes & tones

Minimalist style

I was preparing myself a plate of organic greens washing the earth off & noticed the colour contrast, the beauty of fresh food which lead me to a photo shoot craze… There was no photoshop involved besides the middle one where I played a bit with the colour.
Which one is your favorite?

Aren’t greens elegant?

Unadulterated & authentic…modest yet ornate (Pur et authentique … modeste mais orn├ę)

The beauty of simplicity ┬ęcopyright2014owpp

The beauty of simplicity

I walk and I see
The beauty of simplicity
That one buttercup standing out
Shooting upward among short green grass
Calling out, screaming out for my discernment
I answer in spite of myself and approach as a somnambulist,
Hand stretched out ready to stroke the stem, the petals, gently
Guiding it toward my tool of appreciation, the more I use it on the
Small, the further is its individuality magnified… I close onto its delicacy,
Its silky petals, the brightness of unadulterated yellow, the intricacies of its
Nerve map, the bulge of its heart and discover the secret of purity.

Je marche et je vois
La beaut├ę de la simplicit├ę
Cet unique bouton d’or saillir
Jaillir vers le haut parmi l’herbe
Courte et verte criant, hurlant pour
Mon discernement, je r├ęponds malgr├ę moi
Et approche comme un somnambule, main tendue
Pr├¬t ├á carresser la tige, les p├ętales, le guidant
Doucement vers mon outil d’appr├ęciation, plus je l’utilise
Sur l’insignifiant, plus est amplifi├ę son individualit├ę… je ferme
Sur sa d├ęlicatesse, ses p├ętales soyeux, la luminosit├ę du jaune pur, les subtilit├ęs
De sa carte de nerfs, le renflement de son coeur et d├ęcouvre le secret de la puret├ę.

Step in… you’ll find the missing pieces

Step in... ┬ęcopyright2014wpp

Step in…

Step in to the threshold of each & every day
Living your life with love light peace & joy*

If you can manage that you will quickly see
That you have found the missing pieces…

Tender moments in the barnyard

Oh tender moments! ┬ęcopyright2014owpp

Oh tender moments!

Officially on a summer break
I still have the urge to share
special moments experienced as
this one in a Eco-petting farm
which I hope you will enjoy!

MY Venice

Venice the beautiful! ┬ęcopyright2014owpp

Venice the beautiful!

This photo is special to me.

It’s the less traveled “streets” of Venice.
The ones you can stop by and absorb the
Depth, its color, shadows and reflections…
In short all it has to offer to the knowing eye
The one who has already witnessed the Venice of
Sequins and glitter… curious of its authenticity
Thirsty for its poetic form shrouded in dreamy

Seeking solace in its troglodyte spots.

I am going to have to take time off for my family.
Exams are approaching & I need to be there & offer my support
we then go into summer holidays.
My apologies but I will be back hopefully with a whole bunch
of summer light in my photography ­čÖé
