My top four B&W beauties!

Today, I have selected out of my whole collection the top four B&Ws!
The first one you might be familiar with, it’s been used once to thank all of you followers for your kindness & patience whenever I was in a pickle with my blog or computer.
The second one is actually from my handbag strap which I believe would make a nice close up & out of the five I took this one was the best.
Having said that I find B&W pure fun & should probably explore a bit more that avenue…
Which one is your favorite? Do you like the monochrome with a blue tint to it too?

My first fireworks photography experience

A while back I said I was going to post my very first firework experience in photography but was so busy after New year restoring my blog that it took me a while…
It needed about a hundred and fifty shots to capture these sixteen. I was astonished at the art shapes emerging from some of them & felt like sharing… curious of your opinion 🙂

The rose caught in a rainfall

I have realized that even though I have plucked up my courage tonight & started to restore my photography section (which is much harder than the two previous ones I did as each post can contain up to nine photos!) I still need to share with all of my faithful followers, my work… one of them photography and offer you this rose offered to me 😉 and caught in a rainfall (which I’m quite proud of :)) as a tribute to the very talented photographers I follow out there & from whom I learn everyday a bit more.

I am taking this opportunity to remind you how amazing you all are & how much I’ve benefited from your blogs since I opened mine a year & four months ago should it be in my writing, poetry, painting, gardening or photography.

Thank you!

This blogger http://oilpastelsbymary.com/ does the most amazing drawing in oil pastels and inspired me so much that I went out to buy myself (I was lucky to find them on sale!) Sennelier oil pastels in the basic colors to try out the novelty of texture & technique required. This is the results of having a load of fun with my imagination 🙂

I had no idea which brand to choose but only asked for one that would be easier to mix & work with. I got really lucky because I found out later that a lot of artist prefer working with it.

Tissage ( Weaving ) 2011

This painting was part of my experiences with new tools and the effect was
made with what they call in painting tool language a Catalyst wedge. It has
various numbers determining the width between the ” teeth ” or you could get
it in a brush which they call a Catalyst polytip bristle brush.

I did not go on using it but I have the feeling it has a load of potential
with a wide range of technique I just have to get familiar with.

I like the way it drags one color into another yet, keeps nearly intact
the piece.
it is a bit in the same spirit as the painting I have on my profile of
Interactions and influences and have posted it too.

Have a lovely weekend! 🙂

Louise Hay – You can heal your life – srpski prevod ( Most precious and valuable info! )


This is a video I wanted to share with you a long time ago.
It is most precious and valuable information which I treasure
today.

It is long but your perseverance will pay back. One thing that
marked me was a woman who testified ( after precisely 35.50 mn running )
and affirms having cured herself of cancer with a positive
affirmation of Louise Hay.

It struck me and I thought, if she can do that with such an extreme
case I can surely use it to cure my little ailments nagging me.
So I repeated the affirmation which was ” My body now restores itself to
its normal state of good health ” for a month without thinking too much
but, a pattern developed and every time I got to say ” now ” my body
relaxed to a point it’d never managed before.

I realized it connected to the ” Now ” of Byron Katie’s philosophy who says,
the now is usually good and ok. Living in the now is the simplest and
easiest thing to do. It give you a sense of peace and of being complete with
life.

My life has changed in many pleasant details, some big, some small, but I’ll
give you the pleasure to experiment it on your own and keep the anticipation
intact 🙂

This is the first time I tried to work with gold. It’s a color I’m very fond of yet find a bit tricky
to work with, as it can transform a good painting into some kitsch looking design.

I still love it and liked the effect it had in this Theme but somehow never used it again. I go with the emotion
and if it doesn’t guide me toward a material or subject, I just listen…

Let me know what you think of it!

This painting was taken from a drawing I had found and wanted to try out.
I loved the almost childlike, naive way of expression.

I thought it would take a second to paint. Was I in for a surprise! There
was a multitude of details I hadn’t seen at first but, I was happy with the
end result.

What do you think?

Colored steps to heaven 2009

Colored steps was produced for the experience of trying to align colors, having them blend with the adjacent ones yet keep their own structure.

I like to remember not to take painting too seriously, keep the spontaneity children are born with, that is when I can let loose and flow with the creation I am busy with.

With each painting comes an aspiration and a motive, I hope hope you will like this one 🙂
