Architecture of a lost era

Architecture… another form of art.
Wherever I go my head usually is turned
up toward the sky, down toward the microscopic
results of nature or sideways toward the magnificent
Denouement of mankind’s work of patience… the facades.

Old coins & semi-precious stones…


Of old coins & stones... ©copyright2014owpp

Of old coins & stones…

He fondles them between his fingertips blindly sensing the clefts & burgeoning ends
Leaping gullies & cliffs tamping down the deluge escalating… sighing as the summer
Breeze guessing the brightness of the Tiger’s eyes, transparency of a Quartz, freshness
Of a dark blue sea Howlite & old (false:)) coins etched skillfully in history…

Desire to own unparalleled beauty, frenzy inundating his senses, rationality flying out
To mountain’s guts where stones are born wrenched from nature’s grip…
He who tries to capture the unattainable, for riches come & go, heritage too fetching
To compass too grand to retain but frozen into words to depict the memory of the chosen.

P.s I love stones & coins for a very long time, I feel each one has a lot to say.
I hope these photos and poem give credit to their beauty
P.P.s I got an answer on the “nameless stone” it’s an Agate! You can check the blogger who sent it in the comments bellow.

There is a castle in our backyard!

I have a hard time letting go of posting & getting on with restoring. I already know how to reduce the pixels which I have just done now with these two photos and feel I have climbed a step on the ladder of the blog-world 😉

I wanted to share with you this photo that seemed comical at the time. Imagine waking up one morning to see (I’m speaking of fantasy but this one is real!) a castle in your backyard! I wondered how the people living next to it felt with that as a view. Can you picture it?

Poets in breeding


©copyright2013owpp

©copyright2013owpp

Clubs and bookmarks
Strolls in the park
Gatherings and readings
Poets in breeding.
Rays of sun
Caressing for fun
Words on pages
Whispered through the ages
No food nor beverages
Just words that amazes
This circle sitting on grass
Oblivious to movement or mass
Floating through time
Echos that chime
Eras, epochs and lives
Of people born and died
Sharing poetry as one
Phrases built to run
Wildly in the mind of some.
Lovers of architects lining
The hopes of the ones not daring
To take the quill and stroll
Through the minds and ghosts
Of bookclubs and whispers
Caressing the pages
Through the ages…

Unique Film of Pierre-Auguste Renoir Painting (1919) Including two others of A.Rodin & C.Monet


I found this rare piece, a pure treasure from the blogger http://ladonasmusicstudio.com/ and couldn’t resist the urge to share it with all of you!
I added two other very short films of two monstrous artists… Auguste Rodin and Claude Monet
Enjoy it 🙂

Pierre-Auguste Renoir – Filmed Painting at Home (1919)

This is unique footage of the great Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919).

He is seen at home, working on a canvas.

I’m just astonished it exists – I never imagined I’d see film of him painting – you even get a sense of his method of applying the oil to the canvas.

Also present in this footage are Renoir’s youngest son Claude, 14, who stands by to arrange the palette and place the brush in his father’s hand, and Sacha Guitry, the man who made this film in 1915 and who appears midway through the film sitting down and talking with the artist.

Enjoy!

Auguste Rodin – Filmed Sculpting in his Studio (1915)

Published on 26 Aug 2013
This is unique film of the father of modern sculpture, Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), working in his studio in Paris in 1915.

What is particularly interesting in the various pieces of footage is seeing — close up – the artist’s process with marble.

There are four segments of film:

[1] The artist walking up and down the steps of a monumental columned building, and inspecting the structure

[2] Rodin posing top-hatted in a garden

[3] The sculptor coming out of the then derelict C18 Hôtel Biron, which the artist used as his studio

[4] Rodin sculpting in his studio

Enjoy!

Claude Monet – Filmed Painting Outdoors (1915)

Published on 26 Aug 2013
This is unique film of French Impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926), painting outdoors, ‘en plein air’, in his garden at Giverny.

The footage is in two segments.

Firstly we see the artist outdoors talking to a gentleman.

Then we see Monet painting a water lily-padded pond, a subject for which he is most famed.

Enjoy!

You hold with ease
The ropes
Circle upon circle
Neatly coiled
As the thoughts you
Have tamed
And the anecdotes
You have
come to value.

Celtic Music – Hero’s Journey-An exquisite piece- A must!


Thanks to bloggers I follow regularly who posted a few times Celtic music, I got to fall in love with some of the tunes.
As a coincidence I found today on you tube’s front page Celtic music which lead me to this most exquisite piece!
There’s something in the notes that just stirs your soul. One can just see their whole history unfolding in front of our eyes, it’s poignant, melancholic and terribly moving.

What do you think?

Another Celtic tune based on medieval times. I took inspiration from Skyrim but the song has nothing to do with the game itself, so once again don’t judge the song for the game or the picture, thank you 🙂

Thanks for all your support , rating the video,add to your favs and leaving a comment
is always appreciated and helps me a lot.

As always I recomend to listen with earphones since the sound quality on youtube is not the best.

The deep blue- English prose and acrylic painting “Le grand bleu”-February 2013


Le grand bleu Dec.2012 ©copyright2013owpp

Le grand bleu Dec.2012
©copyright2013owpp

The French title of my recent painting was inspired by a film I had seen quite a while back called Le grand bleu” which, if I find on you tube will only be able to be posted if it has English subtitles. It was very popular at the time. The only thing I would have changed, is its ending which is quite tragic. It is very poetic, artistic and mostly directed to lovers of nature.
This prose is a tribute to the ocean.

The deep blue
—————–

I see you
Crash in foam
Die on shores
Dissipate, vanish

To the deep blue
Abyss where lies
The mysteries of
Ancient history

Bury in the
Protective embrace
Of natures singularities
Whisper to its constancy

Roam through its jewels
Confer with the council
Breathe nimbus of glory
Oxygenate your inhabitation.

I look for boundaries
There are none…
Search for strain
Vanity or fame

But all I see is you
Crash on the shores
Scatter and evanesce

Embrace the deep blue.

creativity and genius.
