I have been taking flower shots for quite a while now, but only understood yesterday while having fun at it once again, the influence the blogging world has on my results which I think has definitely improved since the beginning of my blog.
This time I decided to play it sometimes sophisticated with black background and others preserved its pure lines in the classical settings of daylight.
I hope you’ll enjoy this collection 🙂

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! 🙂

My brother – So gentle Dec.2011 Poem with French original text

This poem was written with rivers of love for my younger brother whom I discovered later, the strength of his soul.

My Brother
———-

Back turned
You watched nowhere
I heard a sob
Waking me with a start

I feigned sleep
My heart alert
Wishing to comfort
Not daring to admit

Desolate landscape
Décor effaced
All in you cried out
To regain your liberty

Moment of infinite tenderness
Parenthesis in my distress
I trampled your softness
Not thinking about your welfare
————-
Have I expiated my sin
With a rose, a thing?
No, It is with love
For my brother, I feel

Witness of a story
Of a derisory past
A long path
Cultivated by our means

Age, unveiled
The clarity, the truth
Of your soul, beauty
Was revealed to me

I felt beating in me
The rhythm of life
The tom-tom of joy
A window to the radiant

My brother is only sweetness
Artisan and author
Of an inner strength
Kindness, his motor
———–
I needed all these years
To find you, appreciate
To understand your value
Your personality in depth

Perhaps a rose,
Is after all just a thing
But I hold it out to you
In all friendship

As a peace offering 🙂

Mon frère n’est que douceur
————————

Le dos tourné
Nul part tu regardais
J’entendis un sanglot
Me réveillant en sursaut

Je feignis le sommeil
Mon cœur en éveil
Voulant te consoler
Mais n’osant te l’avouer

Paysage désolé
Au décor effacé
Tout en toi crier
Pour retrouver ta liberté

Moment d’infinie tendresse
Parenthèse dans ma détresse
Je piétinais ta douceur
Ne pensant à ton bonheur
———–
Ai-je expié mon péché
Avec une rose, une chose ?
Non, avec l’amour
Pour mon frère que j’éprouve

Témoin d’une histoire
D’un passé dérisoire
D’un long chemin
Cultivé par nos moyens

Avec l’âge, c’est dévoilé
Une clarté. La vérité
De ton âme, la beauté
M’a été révélé

Alors,
J’ai senti battre en moi
Le rythme de la vie,
Le tam-tam de la joie
Une fenêtre vers l’épanouis

Mon frère n’est que douceur
Artisan et auteur,
D’une force intérieure
La bonté son moteur

Il m’a fallu toutes ces années
Pour te retrouver, t’apprécier
Comprendre ta valeur
Ta personnalité en profondeur
————
Peut-être qu’une rose
N’est après tout, qu’une chose
Mais je te le tends en toute amitié

Comme offrande de paix 🙂

This is me having a bit of fun decorating my lioness painting which I had posted previously, with shells ( another passion of mine 🙂 ) I selected along the years.

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!

Monde sublime 1987 ( French Poem with English translation ” Sublime world ” )

Hi everyone!
These poems were written so long ago ( at the beginning of my ” poet career ” if I can call it so 🙂 )
that I had to recompose them but left the basic which was very good.
I hope you’ll enjoy it!

Monde sublime
————-

Au clair de lune
Lune en pleine vie
Je prends ma plûme
L’envie me saisit

Au clair de lune
Lune qui sourit
J’exerce ma plûme
La folie me rejouit

Sur papier blanchi
Je compose avec frénésie
Une lettre pour mes amies
La terre, l’univers rétrécit

Les mots jaillissent
Dansent et tissent
Une toile d’amour
Envoyer sans retour

Les mots fleurissent
entonnent et rugissent
L’élégance de ce monde
L’amitié qui gronde

Vertu négliger
réapprendre à respirer
Temps de regarder
Apprecier l’humanité

Penser ami
Savourer la vie
Demain, aujourd’hui
L’instant qui suit

Sur ces mots je signe
La fin de cette ligne
Ma feuille de vigne
De monde sublime

_______________

Sublime world
————-

By moonlight
moon full of life
I take my quill
Yen seizes me

By moonlight
Moon that smiles
I exert my quill
Madness rejoices me

On bleached paper
I compose frenetically
A letter for my friends
Earth and shrunken universe

Words spring
Dance and weave
A web of love
Sent with no-return

Words bloom
Sing and roar
The elegance of this world
Friendship rumbling

Virtue neglected
Learn to breathe ( again )
Time to see
Appreciate humanity

Think friend
Savor life
Tomorrow, today
Moments that follow

On these words I sign
At the end of this line
My vine leaf
With ( world ) sublime!
