Turbulences soon coming up in bigger version… & opening of new online shop at Saatchi Art


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.

I have so little time to post with all the painting, that today I’m going to post as much as possible 🙂
Best wishes for a wonderful weekend!

This is another addition to the Zen flower collection.
Including close ups of brush strokes & tones

Finding solace in nature’s protection

Picture perfect!

This was an unforgettable outing… when life gets too chaotic we are lucky
to have the possibility to run to the hills to seek solace in its protection.
Regardless to past behavior, nature embraces & cradles humanity unconditionally.

As hard as it was to choose the best of this collection, I tried to put myself
into the viewer “shoes” & select the top ones which came to a grand total of
sixteen so, my apologies for the length of this post 🙂

Nameless mountain flower

Temporary namelessness 🙂

Many years ago I found this flower on a stroll in the surrounding mountains of Celerina-Switzerland which fascinated me by its unique chiffon appearance.
Having searched on the internet & thinking it was a Drosanthemum floribundum – Pale Dewplant I realized the leaves did not match… it remains nameless until one of you recognizes it 🙂

Ray Mears’ Extreme Survival S03E01 – Belarus

This is an amazing BBC series on You tube that goes in six different parts of about 50 mn. each and are absolutely fascinating, there’s not one boring moment in them ( I have seen everyone of them) but as they’ve been put a copyright on, I can’t place them in this blog.

It goes from S03E01 to S03E06.

Ray Mears’ Extreme Survival S03E01 – Belarus
Ray Mears’ Extreme Survival S03E02 – Roger’s Rangers
Ray Mears’ Extreme Survival S03E03 – Alaska
Ray Mears’ Extreme Survival S03E04 – Namibia
Ray Mears’ Extreme Survival S03E05 – Thailand
Ray Mears’ Extreme Survival S03E06 – New Zealand

There’s a huge amount of knowledge gained from it, captivating testimonies of survival and reconstructions of the stories with Ray Mears who is a brilliant reporter on survival skills around all these countries… it just transports you far away to the far corners of untouched wild life around the world.

Well worth relaxation time split into a few evenings 🙂


I found this in a post from
This is surely not my department but it is so ingenious I HAD to post it… it fascinated me how a person can take pop cans and make a solar panel out of it!

Enjoy the creativity 🙂

Stars on ripples…

Water glittering

Ripples glistering
Under the burning
Midday sun as fallen
Stars under a full
Moon, igniting and
Vanishing in the
Same gasp…

Water sparkles

These photos took me a long time to capture. My camera is not a sophisticated one and it took me ages to get those stars shinning 🙂
Enjoy them!
