The happy tree II .


Made with Square InstaPic

The birth of this painting was magical, just as the first Happy tree of this collection. It reflects the joys of our daily routine which usually go unnoticed.
It is called Happy to bring trees to our notice & appreciation.
I guess you can call it a work of gratitude.
Trees make life beautiful, it’s alive, it grows, summer it gives shade, winter shelter from winds & storms, it (sometimes) nourishes, provides wood for all kind of purposes, gives oxygen, lightens our hearts in every aspect, decorates our outdoors, indoors, minds & souls, goes with the cycle of seasons a symbol of rebirth…
This is a reminder that We are lucky to be surrounded by them day in day out!

Serenity. Mother/newborn II


27-2-2017-serenity-4-1

This new mother/newborn is based on impressionism.
Here I wanted to keep intact the soft and tender atmosphere between mother and newborn
without going too much in to details.
Let me know what you think about it.

Mother/newborn I video


A moment of grace dedicated to all mothers in the world.
Their patience and unconditional love is nothing short of miraculous!
My first video of one of my paintings. I find it is easier to show details that way . This one belongs to the mother/newborn collection I am still busy with.
A realistic painting I sketched in 2012 and picked back up in 2015.
The energy between mother and newborn and the display of light and shadow was a priority.
They play a major role in the atmosphere of this exceptional moment captured on my camera.
Mastering different techniques is a very enriching experience.
That is why I continue experimenting as much as possible.

P.S I have no idea why the video came out so long I have a hard time to see it in full on my laptop but on my phone I do so please excuse the technicalities as I am still new at this.
Thank you!

Run run dark beauty…

This poem is dedicated to all those who have overcome adversity & climbed higher than humanly possible.
The photo is the sketch of a project I am busy with. Horses are my passion & I might have gotten stuck with this longer than I should for fear of not giving justice to this magnificent animal & the tremendous power exuding from it.
Keep warm! Hope you enjoy the poem. Feedback is always very welcome 🙂

Run run my race horse over the fences, hedges & highest walls, take leaps,
skip over rivers, mane blowing in the winds, undeterred… nothing stopping you.

Run run my stallion,spread the energy, black shining coat glistening under the effort
of raw power. Long gone are your days of uncertainty, battles over frail beginnings.

Run run dark beauty, never be afraid of winning, fly & never turn back, you were a
conqueror at your first faltering steps…

Run run my baby, I will celebrate your victories, as close to my heart,
as bright as the stars, as magical as your existence.

Sleep sleep my foal you’ve earned the miracle of tomorrow!

The night tree


the-night-tree

Still very busy with the tree collection.
I have used here oil painting and extra strong gel medium to bring the tree to life. I love working with texture for specific effects on certain project.

Trees, sometimes especially at night make life beautiful and in a sense are even more alive.
This is a reminder that We are lucky to be surrounded by them day in day out!

Best wishes for a safe warm winter to all of you!

Video & photo of new oil painting project


New project

New project

Working on a new project on 100/160 canvas.
This is the second canvas I am using in this size, the first being in acrylic.
Oil painting is far more challenging.
Having said that, I love my work. Artists are given the liberty to feel like a child while acting like an adult… I rarely share the beginnings of my projects, I’d rather show the end product, it kind of takes off the pressure as some can take as long as two years but for one reason or another this time was an exception maybe in order to celebrate my first oil painting on such a big scale…

The Happy Tree – New oil painting project finally finished!


the-happy-tree-oct-2016

It has been a long time since last post… being very busy with many painting projects.
I have switched momentarily to oil painting, love the texture but still use acrylic for specific effects on other projects which demand that quality, texture & movement.
The birth of this painting was magical. It reflects the joys of our daily routine which usually go unnoticed.
The tree collection is thriving…
This one is called Happy to bring trees to our notice & appreciation.
