Sea again… I never tire of that subject.
Used extra strong gel medium.
I want to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all my followers (& visitors) & wish you all very happy holidays.
As I might not be posting until 2016 so, best wishes for a very happy new year to all of you too!
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!
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…

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.
On this beautiful day I want to send to all of you this happy song to bring sunshine to yours. It is one of my children’s favorite which has become mine to the point of wanting to wake up every morning to this cheerful note 🙂
I only thought of posting it when I found it on http://purplewoods.wordpress.com/2013/12/03/purple-music-happy/
and had a good 4.07 mn of joy!
My wish is it’ll do the same to you 🙂

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.
Clubs and bookmarks
Strolls in the park
Gatherings and readings
Poets in breeding.
Rays of sun
Caressing for fun
Words on pages
Whispered through the ages
No food nor beverages
Just words that amazes
This circle sitting on grass
Oblivious to movement or mass
Floating through time
Echos that chime
Eras, epochs and lives
Of people born and died
Sharing poetry as one
Phrases built to run
Wildly in the mind of some.
Lovers of architects lining
The hopes of the ones not daring
To take the quill and stroll
Through the minds and ghosts
Of bookclubs and whispers
Caressing the pages
Through the ages…
P.s This is wishful thinking 🙂
I searched so long for such a group & never found one.
