Summer sunset.
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!

Fiery sunset. Oil painting.


Fiery sunset oct. 2015-1-

Since beginning the motherhood portrait in oil painting I have ventured in the thrill of texture from another angle and have tremendous pleasure with its results.
Sea in all seasons is my passion which makes this creative moment one of delight & inspiration.

Holidays have stretched out for technological reasons

Hi everyone! Please forgive my longer absence. I have computer problems which I hope will quickly get resolved. You might remember this photo… I have already used it as I cannot bring my photos into my Media.
Meanwhile one of my closest opened up Instagram for me as an advertising facility for my photography & paintings. All you have to do is go on “search” on Instagram, type LIFE_PAINTINGS to get on it.
If you have a moment to spare I’d greatly appreciate the effort! It is still at its beginning so persevere with me while I’m buildings a solid portfolio…
Thanks again for your patience, all the likes & follows. I am always amazed at the fidelity of my viewers especially in my inactive holiday periods or as now, when trouble arises 🙂

Horses & sea… life’s canvas when words do not suffice

Horse art…

I have always been fascinated by three powerful forces of nature (among others but those are my favorite) horses, dolphins and the sea but as the second is inaccessible to me unless I go to these infamous shows, I content myself with the two which is why I have come up today with the best of my collection in the hope it’ll speak to you as much as it did to me when I picked up my lens.
It is what I do when trying to convey what words cannot, when they do not suffice…
But the ultimate in my eyes would be to immortalize the same moments with them galloping in the wild.
It is indeed a beautiful & soothing visualization exercise 😉

A important detail:
The photos were taken on the spur of a magical moment, there was no setting of scenery.

Which one do you elect as your favorite?

Preternatural lake

Just quickly posting an old picture dug out from our hard drive, taken in a time when Photoshop was still unknown to us so, the magical color you see of this high-altitude lake in the region of St-Moritz is real.
Passing with the train we were mesmerized by the difference in a regular lake and this one…
It had a lunar quality that we had never seen before.

I hope this shot captured its glow and the pull it had on us, endowing it on to you…

Best wishes for a wonderful summer!
