Music in raindrops…


Raindrops...

While waiting in the car on a rainy day, words came accompanied by the rhythm of nature…

Pit pat, pit pat raindrops there you
sat
On the borders of my soul, composing music
as you roll.
Comforting bruises new & old, rocking me out
of my mould.
Turning nuisance into charm, when the curtains
are drawn,
Keeping sunshine at bay, eluding the realities
of night & day…

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.

Happy new year!

Happy new year!

Being one with nature, this is the feelings we get when surrounded by natural beauty…
Best wishes to you all!

My apologies for the delayed wishes… Just couldn’t get down to posting it here, nevertheless still managed to squeeze it into my Instagram & Facebook account, somehow I find the tagging more time consuming here:)
Does anyone feel the same?

These photos were taken on the day before new year. It was so sunny it put me in the mood for a serious photo shoot session which surpassed my expectations.
Let me know what you think…

My new painting! Les pav├ęs de la vie – Life’s cobblestones.

Les pav├ęs de la vie
┬ęcopyright2015owpp

This painting is very close to my heart, it belongs to the Theme I’m working on, of life & it’s journey. I’m sure you remember Evolution trek (I have posted previously) Odyssey is another.
Les pav├ęs de la vie represents life’s course. Notice the nuance in texture, colour, cracks & shapes of the cobblestones & interpret it in your own personal experience of life and growth along the way…
I used about three liters of paint for the under layer & around two kilos of plaster for the cobblestones which makes it quite a heavy canvas!
Before hanging it, in order to prevent it from falling & breaking, I had to make sure the hooks were well placed by drilling proper holes in the wall.
I am posting here all the painting’s stages.
Let me know.
I truly enjoyed your comments from last post ­čÖé
Thanks to all of you for your words of encouragement & likes!

Celebrating my 500th post!


WordPress 500th post!

WordPress 500th post!

This is for YOU! ┬ęcopyright2014owpp

This is for YOU!
┬ęcopyright2014owpp

As I published last post I received in my WordPress-new-post this!
I had not realized I was up to 500 posts & just wanted to share with
all of you this milestone ­čÖé
When I created this blog I never dreamed of ever getting here…
I wanted to let you know that without all your positive feedback
and encouragement I sincerely wouldn’t have been here writing this!

So, a big THANK YOU goes to each and every one of you for your constant
support, patience & help when crises arose.

I hardly ever re-blog but these pearls of wisdom I found on http://drbillwooten.com/2014/04/29/life-in-general/#comment-5530 were screaming to be published further on!

ÔÇťFeelings of suffering change into those of happiness. Feelings of happiness change into suffering. Both arise in dependence upon internal and external causes which change. For example, we see food as pleasurable, but if we eat too much, then it causes suffering. When we are young, we see our bodies as a source of pleasure. As we become older, the same body becomes a source of suffering. Just as a wave is always changing, so the nature of suffering is always to change. It may be experienced as pleasure or as suffering, but it arises from the same source. Pleasure arises from suffering. Seeing pleasure as happiness constitutes suffering. ÔÇŽPain and pleasure are of the same nature. Although they look different at different times, they both arise from the same sea of delusion and karmic action. Pleasure or pain, one or the other, arises and then falls back into the ocean. Thus we can conclude that pleasure and pain within the ocean of samsara are basically suffering, and dissolve into suffering. This becomes evident in the wide variety of sudden changes of experience depicted in films. Love and hatred, happiness and family strife, peace and war, follow each other in rapid succession. The continuous change, although exaggerated in films, is characteristic of life in generalÔÇŁ.
