Just a few days old & happy to inaugurate it on my blog.
This painting was so much fun to do I felt like a child on its first outing topped with a four scoop ice cream!
It was one of my easiest & most inspiring to create, possibly because it speaks of light & nature. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your fidelity, the continuous follows, likes & comments!

The magic of Burano


A mirage of an hour, a day... ©copyright2014owpp

A mirage of an hour, a day…

It is hard to sustain enthusiasm when speaking of Burano
A flood of memories inundate everyday realities…
Preferring to fly back in time & resuscitate the
Mirage of a second, an hour or a day rather
Than seeing our rainbows after the storm or
Lift our gaze to the stars in our skies…

P.S
You gather from these few lines the wonderful time we had in Burano a while back, a village of fishermen & laces, which was enhanced by the encounter of a renowned painted Carlo Memo that inspired me to describe this unique day through poetry.

Burano is an island in the Venetian Lagoon, northern Italy; like Venice itself, it could more correctly be called an archipelago of four islands linked by bridges. It is situated near Torcello at the northern end of the Lagoon, and is known for its lacework and brightly coloured homes.

Don’t you like those lazy summer days
Where going out for a stroll means
Leaving the trail of uncertainties
Behind, enjoy life’s miracle and
Exquisite grace, unfold at
Its own pace…

As a Jack in the box spring
Just popped out of a winter
Never begun not wanting to
Be forgotten fighting for
Its place in the kingdom
Of seasons…

This blogger http://oilpastelsbymary.com/ does the most amazing drawing in oil pastels and inspired me so much that I went out to buy myself (I was lucky to find them on sale!) Sennelier oil pastels in the basic colors to try out the novelty of texture & technique required. This is the results of having a load of fun with my imagination 🙂

I had no idea which brand to choose but only asked for one that would be easier to mix & work with. I got really lucky because I found out later that a lot of artist prefer working with it.
