Yearning from concrete to changes…

I need change.
The kind that will slice the past from the future.
The one that throws the stale to the wolves giving them a chance to feast on old despair, new pain.
That erases the awkwardness of unwanted strokes & colours in an uninspired moment on canvas.
The change that brings spring to one’s step, washes dust accumulated over a lifetime, gives a breath of life to depleted lungs tired of screaming frustration.

A new beginning.

A leaf untouched…
Thick enough to hold the weight of gold, music, streams of clear pure me, of light happiness, of life in every second, in every drop reflecting the warmth & invitation of sunlight, the growth of tiny shoots…
Of essence.

I need not escape realities of life but nudity of meaning, void spreading its wings demanding more space.
I need change now, not a price dangling in front of a screaming soul.
If the world can make changes nobody wants, I can make changes I aspire to for a decade.

But how does one move a continual existence among concrete to the cradle of quintessential, the pacifying arms of space, growth & tranquillity without the means to grasp that suspended dream?

I shout not of despondency but whisper the conveyance of promise, the strategy of hope.
I feed not the fond illusion of a fool’s paradise…
A few questions in wait of disclosure & the walls will come tumbling down…
A few more steps in that direction escorted by diligence & the carrot will be in my mouth!

The madness of Vermeer – Secret lives of the artists


I saw today this brilliant documentary of the famous Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer on the advise of a painter on Instagram j.hajesart who is in the middle of a very audacious project… a copy of this master which is progressing brilliantly.
I became an admirer of Vermeer after I saw the movie “Girl with the pearl earring” see the post on the drawing I made in soft pastels… https://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/2012/11/03/the-girl-with-the-pearl-2007/ & loved to get more info on the life & works of this unequaled artist.
I’m going to see tonight as well “Tim’s Vermeer”.
This one is 59 mn long & I enjoyed every second of it.
It is very heavy to post on my blog as it takes much space but I made an exception for this time 🙂
I hope you’ll like it!

First broadcast: 2003.
Episode 2/3 Johannes Vermeer is one of our favourite painters, with his Girl with a Pearl Earring now deemed the ‘Mona Lisa of the North’. But little is known about his life and for almost two centuries he was lost to obscurity.

Andrew Graham-Dixon, travelling to Vermeer’s hometown of Delft and a dramatic Dutch landscape of huge skies and windmills, embarks on a detective trail to uncover the life of a genius in hiding.

Renowned for painting calm and beautiful interiors, the real life of Vermeer was marred by crime and violence. His life was a bid to escape the privations of his family and yet even a glamorous marriage and artistic success failed to save him from the fate he dreaded more than any other.

Architecture of a lost era

Architecture… another form of art.
Wherever I go my head usually is turned
up toward the sky, down toward the microscopic
results of nature or sideways toward the magnificent
Denouement of mankind’s work of patience… the facades.

You invite the houses
From far, cradle them
In your fold, consoling
Their ephemeral shadows.
