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.
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.
A display of nature’s beauty and perfection I wanted to share with all of you!
Enjoy it 🙂

Uploaded on Feb 21, 2007 http://www.keepturningleft.co.uk for more bird films. The starlings are an astonishing thing to see – Near Oxford – England. This was filmed at an RSPB reserve called Otmoor. It is the most remarkable thing I have ever seen – and as a video camerman I have seen some pretty amazing things.
The music is from a companny called CSS Music. The track is “soaring with the sun” – .
I have just received this
Hi, Dylan. I got your contact information from your beautiful YouTube video published in February 2007.
Like drivers on a freeway, starlings dont appear to mind having neighbors nearby on their sides—or above and below, for that matter—as long as they have open space ahead. That makes sense, since the presence of a clear path in the direction of travel minimizes the likelihood of collisions should the birds need to shift their course abruptly, as is likely when a falcon attacks. But whats really nifty about this spatial asymmetry is that the researchers have been able to use it to calculate the number of neighbors to which each starling pays close attention—a quantified elaboration of Pottss chorus line idea. By looking at correlations between the movements of neighboring starlings, they can show that each bird always pays attention to the same number of neighbors, whether theyre closer or farther away. How many neighbors is that? Six or seven, says Cavagna, who points out that starlings in flocks can almost always see many more nearby birds— but the number may be closely tied to birds cognitive ability.
The direction of the flock can be coordinated by each birds tracking six or seven other birds. Remarkable. This is a very different kind of cognitive skill.

P.s My apologies to all my followers for not getting back this week as quickly as planned with the restoration of my photos but I hope Thursday will be a relatively calmer day to work hard at it…
Thank you for being patient 🙂
This poem was inspired by the first photo I took focusing on the Theme of an-only-flower-among-foliage.
You can detect on the side the fly which I thought I had no chance of capturing, cicada’s are very
fast, but to my delight soon realized that I could… where began my fascination for those small wonders 🙂
P.S If you are curious no, I have never squashed a fly just the idea repulses me 🙂
A memorable day in Sounds of Nature – Waterfall # 1
Published on Aug 18, 2013
I’m proud to present to you my first video on Youtube. I hope you like it. POSITIVE feedback is always welcome. Enjoy!
I can’t believe it…I have finally published my first video on nature in You tube. Let’s be honest, I would’ve never managed it on my own. My very dear ones told me how it’s done 🙂
It is not yet thee perfect version (those two side bars are there because I held my camera the wrong way!) but I’m very happy with the result. The music comes from one of my favorites… Enya, which is soothing and a good counterbalance to the strong powerful cascading stream.
Water and its sounds have always fascinated me in the sense that it has such a soothing influence on the human behavior.
I hope you like and enjoy those short 6 minutes. Let me know what you think of it.
P.s I had to change the music as it was copyright and as a result we can’t hear the sounds of the waterfall which is very disappointing but there’s not much to be done besides being careful next time!
I had the same problem with photos in the beginnings of my blog and somehow I did not connect it this time to music, hence my mistake. I’ll have to find out how to download music the right way 🙂
