A technical glitch becomes my muse.


This project isn’t new.
In fact I have long been busy with it and still have a long way to go…
There are still a million details to refine.

The whole idea was a sheer stroke of luck.
Our printer was nearly out of ink and the result was this amazingly hazy, blurry work of art…
On paper.

A technical glitch became my muse.
Our printer, despite itself turned what could’ve been a more or less ordinary idea into a punch of genius.
In an instant it had taken a whole new dimension.

Today, looking so very closely, I continue detecting, along the work (which often needs a magnifying glass) so much movement in what appeared at first to be a soft, romantic, vague looking image.

This “failed” print I notice, is a host to so many nuances, shadows, blurry, ghostly, ephemeral expressions…

And it lies in every stroke of this ongoing project.
It is very precise, nothing is left to chance.

Yet, it would have gone unnoticed to my eye, if I wasn’t so busy with its minutiae.

Le marronnier enneigé (The horse chestnut in snow)


This is an addition to the first marronnier which I have not yet managed to update here. This one is now a part of my grand tree collection too.

I guess you can call this 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!

Loch na Lathaich in abstract


 

Hi everyone! This is today’s work,


one of my new projects.
A night shot with slow shutter speed on Loch na Lathaich Isle of Mull that came out so nice it was perfect for abstract work.
As a second layer it still has a long way to go.
Will keep you updated… Please check and like my Facebook page at: Life Paintings

Best wishes for 2018 to all!


Best wishes to all my followers and visitors for a healthy happy peaceful new year!
I am taking this opportunity to thank all of you for your patience since the trouble I have been having starting afresh with a new computer and continuing to like comment and support this account all the way, through thick and thin.
It feels challenging after such a long time… I seem to have forgotten what was simple then.
Posting on other social medias from a mobile takes a second whereas with a blog I have to reduce pixels so as not to saturate its internal storage.
Anybody with info about storage and pixels which I might not be aware of, please send it my way, it’ll be greatly appreciated!
I will try to post regularly in order to keep this blog as updated as my Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Life-Paintings-489714007854314/                        my Facebook timeline at SummerGreenwoods and Instagram account at Life_paintings https://www.instagram.com/life_paintings/?hl=nl                Meanwhile I’d really appreciate if you could go check my recent works there.

Thank you!

Celebration


_20170912_100223

Hi everyone!
I couldn’t believe five whole years have gone by since I started this blog.
Forgive my absence.
Lately I have been having computer issues and couldn’t keep you updated with my work, the exhibition, my photography…
But I promise to start posting again as soon as it’s all fixed.
Only then will I feel entitled to fully celebrate this milestone 🙂
Best of luck to all my faithful followers and visitors and best wishes for a safe and warm winter!

The untamed beauty of Isle of mull, Staffa and Ardalanish Scotland


Glorious Puffins

I never thought such nature still existed…
It is raw, foreboding, gentle, soothing, dramatic, cleansing…
Happiness is surrounding ourselves with such beauty at a moment’s notice and/or at every opportunity presenting itself to us.
The Highland cattle is quite a sight when arriving at Isle of Mull.
One can quickly become addicted to capturing the perfect shot. But in reality the setting is so right every angle is perfect.
A glimpse of Mull, #Iona, Staffa, Loch na Lathaich, #Oban and #Ardalanish is a glimpse in heaven.
Mull clenches your thirst for wildlife/#sealife beauty in an environment that has stayed intact and hopefully will go on so.
It is living nature in its true essence.
