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 pavés 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 🙂
Thanks to all of you for your words of encouragement & likes!

Through noise do we decipher silence


Reading silence ©copyright2014owpp

Reading silence
©copyright2014owpp

Through noise do we read silence & through gaps do we decipher noise
As from the pulsating beat of a song
The distant train whizzing through time
Lightning slicing through thunderous
Clouds amidst rumbling nature
The woodpecker’s frenzy
One wave to another
Echoes of footsteps
Stillness crackles as dry wood in a camp fire spitting sparks in irregular
Heartbeats bridging the gaps & the noise in a harmonious breathing exercise.

The place where light enters you…

I thought this most profound saying to be most suitable for this shot!

The wound is the place where light enters you.
Rumi.

P.s
I am going to take time off until after winter holidays to spend quality time with my loved ones but will try my utmost to keep on liking as long as I can & see you back in January!
Make the most of it life goes by too quickly 😉
My best wishes to all of you till then!

Byron Katie Oprah Soul Series Interview part 1 of 3 (all three posted here)


Having been lately down the weather from not exactly the most positive news I looked up for a moral boost on You Tube from one of my favorites… Byron Katie and found this most profound, simple and enlightening short series with Oprah I couldn’t resist posting in order to share her life wisdom with all of you.

According to her philosophy life can be simple and as crystal clear as spring water if only we guide our thoughts accordingly. Let me know if it lifted your spirits as much as it did mine.
Have a lovely weekend!

The lonesome traveler & the lizard


His companion of the moment... ©copyright2013owpp

His companion of the moment…
©copyright2013owpp

He sat very still… as still as the lizard on its
Branch melting in the landscape, adopting the tones
Of the scorched earth surrounding him.
Lost in a desert of thoughts, his emotions adrift…
He wished he could stay in that same position forever.
Lose all notion of his past, future, live as motionless
And inert as his companion of the moment.

Of boats & ropes…

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.
