Carnival in Venice

Just a few photos from this years Carnival in Venice.

Personal

Someone told me that it is easy for me to write a blog when it is not personal.

Do you really think that showing my art isn’t personal? Can’t you se it?

Can’t you see that in very piece of that is a pice of my soul?

Than you are blind. More blind than you could ever be, even though you are given the gift of sight.

I have shown you, it is yours to see.

 

Burning sky – acrylic painting

Burning sky - sunset
Burning sky (sunset), 30×24 cm

“You know– one loves the sunset, when one is so sad…”
“Were you so sad, then?” I asked, “on the day of the forty-four sunsets?”
But the little prince made no reply.”

-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Music theme: Sunset – Avalanche City

 

Often I look to the sky and see more beauty than in any art ever made.

I took a photograph once of the beautiful sunset and it was an inspiration for this painting. This is rather small painting but it’s very dear to me, and I like it for its colours and contrasts.

I didn’t make much texture, only bold strikes of the brush, because the contrast and warm colours create life, even drama on this scene.

Secluded place

I love the changing of the seasons.

When the old season relinquish the throne to the new ruler, leaving behind only traces of the old reign.

And the new lord just came with the new wind, not yet establishing his court.

Time when two spirits intertwine, each bringing its on quintessence.

Time to embrace new things in life and let go of the ones that no longer serve us.

Time for soul searching in solitude in the secluded place.

I took some photos of this magical time of year when spring harbingers bashfully foreshadowing awakening of the sleeping Nature.  

 

Seashells from Adriatic sea

I spend my every summer on isle of Pag in Croatia. This is s beautiful island in the Mediterranean sea. My nieces are good divers so they collect  plenty of seashells every year. I kept them in boxes and didn’t quite know what to do with them.

This year I ‘ve chosen the most beautiful ones and made a wreath:

I’ve used straw wreath and hot glue. It’s rather big wreath so I used up lots of shells, I must say. And here is my stash of remaining seashells:

I have so many ideas what to do with them… So much to do, so little time! 🙂

Last, but not least, I would like to share some photos of beautiful island of Pag.
