Bombfire final layer 100-140cm

I did it! Do you remember? In November I posted a small canvas of a bomb-fire saying I intended to go much bigger, 100/140 cm (39.3/55.1 inches) see, https://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/2014/11/09/my-bonfire-painting-from-sketch-to-canvas-still-growing/ well, I finally finished it & want to share with you the first to final stages.
It came out different & on my art teacher’s advice I’m keeping it that way, I can always make a bigger replica of the smaller one later on.
Each work is like tearing off a gift’s wrapping wondering what’s going to be inside, the results never fail to surprise you… it usually takes you to paths never explored before.
I loved the warmth that emanates from this one, what do you think?

We all have preconceived ideas about what hummingbirds’ lives are like, but so much of their world is imperceptible to the human eye. Filmmaker Ann Prum describes the breakthrough science and latest technologies that allowed her and the crew to reveal incredible new insights about these aerial athletes.

“Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air” aired on PBS Wednesday, September 28, 2011 and was part of the 28th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen in association with WNET.ORG for PBS. Major support provided by Canon U.S.A. Inc. http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod…

It is us, it is earth… for we are one

Peeking between the cracks
©copyright2013owpp

We peek between the cracks of infinity & wonder how is it possible
To know the truth which others are strangers too?

We see the world as an untouched birthstone whereas some explore
Its potentials for profit.

We know it as a growing process nary a bleeding one. To love, cherish
& bless every single breath inspired, expired.

We want to live it not kill it so we can go on inhabiting this underestimated
Arcadia .

We have the greed to breathe & pass it on intact as a legacy to our children’s
Delight.

It is green it is pure,
It is blue it is clear,
It grows it flows,
It sings in the day & hums at night,
It cries & hurts enough in natural misfortunes
Without us adding our punch…
It pours love & offers hugs to the indebted,
It is consoling in sadness, rejoicing at birth,
Mostly, it is us, it is earth for we are one.
Born as one, die as one.

Let us not leave it tinted, poisoned by blinded stupidity nor give right
To nightmare’s prophecies but help the dream…

To stay as one.

P.s
I wrote this with a gushing heart & hopeful soul.
We are sitting on a fall, patching up a wounded & bruised
Planet nevertheless I wish that positivity is the message that
Transpires throughout.

Nomination for the sunshine award!


sunshine-award

I feel very honored and grateful to have received this award. I know that some (I included ;)) feel they are a lengthy process but it is a pleasure to feel your blog is appreciated enough to have received it plus it is an opportunity to link bloggers with similar interests so, all in all my deepest thanks goes to… http://quarteracrelifestyle.wordpress.com/2013/10/09/the-sunshine-award/ for thinking my blog is worthy of this award.

So the rules of this award are the following:

1) Use the logo above in the post.
2) Link to whoever nominated you.
3) Write ten pieces of information about yourself.
4) Nominate ten fellow bloggers “who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogsphere.”
5) Leave a comment on the nominees’ blogs to tell them of the award.

So, ten pieces about myself! Wow that’s a hard one 🙂

1. My family comes first, my art second and my blog is what glues it all together
2. I enjoy working on a piece of writing. I’m as a rule very critical but quickly satisfied when the result seems much better than expected but have learned to let it rest a while so I can look at it with a different mindset in order to go on polishing it which is contrary to my impatient side.
3. I absolutely love painting but find days too short when busy with writing. I don’t like neglecting that side so I go on painting binges which I revel in, get transported in a beautiful dimension of colors and shapes and feel whole.
4. I wish there was enough time in my life to learn a musical instrument…
5. Taking a sculpture course or even develop it on my own.
6. Nature is where I recharge my batteries and take the opportunity to appreciate it all the more through the eye of a lens but would rather have gone professional with the equipment.
7. I love animals, don’t have the space to have their company & have not grown up with them to be totally comfortable in their presence.
8. Still dream of having a dolphin encounter in its natural habitat…
9. Possess & learn how to ride a horse.
10. Feel that families are the molds, where we can teach true values to generations which is our only hope for a serene, balanced & functional future world. If we are not happy with the way things are right now this is the first place to work on. It is worth all the time & energy invested 🙂

Here are the ten amazing bloggers which I have nominated…

1. http://poeticparfait.com/ for the kindness that transpires through her blog
2. http://naomibaltuck.wordpress.com/ for her dynamism & enthusiasm toward life
3. http://livingsimplyfree.wordpress.com/ for her courage & creativity
4. http://soberidentity.com/ for her tremendous inspiration & kindness
5. http://thekitchensgarden.com/about/ for bringing the farm world to us & keeping our dream alive
6. http://charlotteauchocolat.com/ for her deliciously natural & unusual olive oil exotic cake recipes
7. http://tornadoday.wordpress.com/ for her poems which are dripping jewels
8. http://ladybluerose.wordpress.com/ for her tremendous art in writing, for being a true inspiration, and a living example.
9. http://weedimageoftheday.com/ for photography that focuses on bringing out the beauty from the most unusual… weeds
10. http://suedreamwalker.wordpress.com/ for her amazing kindness, bringing us so much information on the environment and spiritual guest speakers.

I understand this is time consuming, would be honored if you’d accept this award but totally understand if you can’t manage it. As http://quarteracrelifestyle.wordpress.com/2013/10/09/the-sunshine-award/ said, pass it on to someone you look up to & admire for their qualities.

Once again, all my thanks for this nomination!

Time to celebrate 1st year blog anniversary!


1

Wow! One year already! It was a year filled with… well, no words can describe the amount I’ve learned, grown and received from all my fellow bloggers.
There’s a tremendous amount of appreciation I’d like to express to everyone who took an interest in my blog, took their time (which is precious indeed) to like and especially comment (that takes even longer:)) without all that positive feedback I don’t know if I would’ve had the tenacity it provided to try more & better…
Thank you Thank you Thank you! The pictures posted here under are for you all.
