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!

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


Turbulences

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.

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?

I am liberated.

Liberation occurs when we are afraid no more of either way we turn out to be, I guess this is what we call letting go.

Previously I have lived in fear of putting on weight & as a consequence resemble my father, loose some & look like my mother, fluctuating between the two for a lifetime perpetually frustrated, seeing their worst in me, never understanding that I was taken away the ability to notice the other side of their personality, that is…

Until today.

When I woke up to a dream of my mother’s lullabies in my ears remembering & realizing that even though she swore she croaked & rattled like rusty pots & pans, she never gave up the pleasures of educating her children in a sing-song voice.
In his own creative way, my father taught us self-reliance, patience & how to spend quality time with his closest.
He taught us things a child never forgets such as, how to roast flour as a snack, design our own sweets from scratch, repair & build things out of nothing.

Pain & anger had obliterated those precious moments rending them insignificant, amplifying & bringing into focus the times of weakness which felt strongly like betrayal.

I am not minimizing the hurt caused nor justifying circumstances which could have been dealt with tolerance, patience, empathy & understanding… all I am saying is that today I am using my lens to magnify what appeared meaningless & putting in the back-burner the heartaches.

There is a time to sow & a time to reap.
Now is the time to appreciate what did go right.
Nothing is stopping me from going all the way up…

No more strings attached…
Free!

This is my journey & I believe it is yours too, for we have traveled a long way in two years.

I thank you for that 🙂
