Waves were kissing…

Yesterday night I was walking barefooted along the shore and warm gentle waves were kissing whatever they were able to reach.

After it I could not stop trying to express something that I felt. Results are below.

Do you like them? If yes what is your favorite?

What do you feel?

Is there anything you want to tell me?

Please let me know.

Thank you!

My latest paintings

Two digital paintings below I created yesterday. They are unique as I am unable to recreate them (a program I use has no tutorials and so I experiment with it until I like some results).

I ask you to look at the paintings and let me know if you like any of them and what, in your opinion, they express.

Thank you!

Art of Etienne Pirot

It does not matter if you already know about Etienne Pirot and his art or not.

When you look at his sculptures you feel how light and expressive they are. They are about all basic human values: love, friendship, motherhood, faith.

His imagination has no limits.

You can read about Etienne Pirot’s life and see his sculptures HERE.

Enjoy!

MINIMALIST?

Life and quotes of Wassily Kandinsky.

Yesterday I received incredible information connected in unbelievable mysterious ways with Wassily Kandinsky. I am going to publish it this week.

In the meantime I recommend all of my followers and guests to read about life of this artist HERE and in other articles on the internet and to read his quotes below.

Everything starts from a dot. ”

There is no must in art because art is free. ”

The artist must train not only his eye but also his soul. ”

The more frightening the world becomes … the more art becomes abstract. ”

Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.”

Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential. ”

The true work of art is born from the ‘artist’: a mysterious, enigmatic, and mystical creation. It detaches itself from him, it acquires an autonomous life, becomes a personality, an independent subject, animated with a spiritual breath, the living subject of a real existence of being. ”

The artist is not a ‘Sunday child’ for whom everything immediately succeeds. He does not have the right to live without duty. The task that is assigned to him is painful, it is a heavy cross for him to bear. ”

To create a work of art is to create the world.”
