In a nutshell you write your own script


In a nutshell You write you own script

In a nutshell You write you own script

In a nutshell you write your own script.
This is a project very close to my heart and one busy simmering, maturing and elaborated to its last detail since about 2013.
The title says it all. The script on the nutshells were very carefully selected after long research. These came from very rare newspapers focusing on the positive changes in our environment.
The position of the nutshells represents life’s journey, each one’s path.
In the next posts you will get a chance at seeing the words close up. The last shell is about a seventy year old man climbing a mountain top.
The pieces on the sides are the unsuccessful scripts we have written and discarded as a writer does.
I am familiar with that concept… I have been writing since a young age.
(You can check my writing & poem category if you are interested).
We chose the music we play, the weather of the day, our kids schools and their success as a result of right choices made… You will all find it on this canvas.
The drip painting representing life’s force will always be faithful to the Jackson Pollock’s method that had and still has a tremendous influence on the works I display.
Note the half nutshell too… the close up of old, tired, tossed, undesired and repetitive scripts some whitened over…the (accidental) T shape.
You are the observer, free to use and enjoy the interpretation of your own experiences and perspective.

A 3D art fun painting!

This was made for a child’s bedroom where colour, consistency, lightness & fun primes.
For orders, commissions or shows please contact life_paintings@hotmail.com

My excuses for making myself so rare on WordPress for the “reader” as much as for the posts, I have just been sick with flue twice, painted nearly full time (will keep you updated once they are completed, for the moment I’m filing their progress for you) & have been very hectic in between too.
As soon as things boil down to a “simmering” routine I hope to be able to get back to things as before.

“In a nutshell life is fun” project revealed!


"In a nutshell life is fun" finally revealed! ┬ęcopyright2015owpp

“In a nutshell life is fun” finally revealed!
┬ęcopyright2015owpp

The 12th of February I wrote in this post that I was busy with a new project & posted a photo with it see…
https://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/?s=busy+with+new+project well, it actually started in February 2014!
Sometimes an idea begins with a spark & mine was cracking nuts… observing how nature is perfect, feeling there was something to the line, folds, cracks & even fresh mold from the ones rotting… yes, I thought, life’s journey is all that, the good & the not so…

That was long before “Life’s cobblestones” was born, actually that one came as an accident ­čÖé see… https://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/?s=life%27s+cobblestones
I was preparing the canvas with a thick white coat of paint for this project but it wasn’t subtle enough & on the advice of my mentor, let it rest… to make a long story short, one thing led to another & to my surprise “Life’s cobblestones” matured into completion as a result of the “In a nutshell” project!
“Evolution trek” https://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/?s=evolution+trek & “Odyssey” https://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/?s=odyssey are all part of a collection of projects on the same theme, the one of life’s journey.
Note in the close ups (for you to be able to see the details) the half nutshells, the colours, the ones shining but authentic in their original “dressing”, the whole hazelnuts small & shining (see in full photo) the beauty of the moldy ones, the specks of nutshell residue, the white one at the far right corner… they all are respectful to the idea of life’s journey.
You are the observer free to use your own interpretation!

I’ll be posting here, the whole set of photos following the long process, step by step till its completion, I hope you’ll enjoy it!
Click on photo to enlarge please. All orders are more than welcome! Just let me know in a comment if you are interested in further details.

Sucked in the vortex of life. My new abstract painting!

┬ęcopyrightowpp2015

As “Sun among foliage” this one is brand new but was painted a few days before. I am including close ups so you can notice the brush strokes of the vortex itself & the movement of the palette knife around, which reveals a multitude of colours from an under layer representing life as being faithful to its bright cheerful miraculous entity even when it gets very hectic & eventful.

Yes! It has found its hanging spot! Doesn’t it look better than the close ups I posted not too long ago…
Proper lighting helps too.
