Compassion

Helping to an injured baby swan

*************************************

The place filled with love and grief

She was standing at a fresh tomb

wiping her tears with a white cloth,

looking at the wooden cross

and the flowers covering the grave.

Her daughter held her shoulders

and kissed her wrinkled hand.

She knew what her mother felt,

she stand with her at the tomb of her love,

just few months ago.

This place was filled with love and grief,

that terrible illness was such a thief!

It took both of them.

Now mother and daughter feel same,

love, compassion and a great pain.

Captured for brushes and paints – Clover and ladybird


Beside my beloved swans I feel always joy seeing ladybirds. It doesn’t matter what colour. I saw red ones with black dots, yellow ones with black dots and black ones with red dots, also red ones without dots. I will maybe create a display of them one day as I did with the dragonflies and damselflies 🙂 , but for now here is the next of my watercolour painting from my “Captured for brushes and paints” series.

29 hours without electricity


Dear bloggers, readers, followers!

I just want to apologize that I didn’t post my weekly posts “Sunday Photo Hunting” and “From ordinary to artistic”, but since yesterday 4pm we were without electricity. 😐
I will post both soon and participate in the challenges I used to.

I need to admit I felt a little frustrated after I woke up today, but this feeling disappeared with the rising sun and my motivation to turn the next few hours without the power to something useful.
Yesterday I cooked the dinner at the candle light and today I fried all the fish filets because it got melted and I wasn’t sure when the power will come back. Well we can enjoy it for the next three days 😄.

Sitting on the stairs, getting some sun I decided to create something nice, so I took the three old pots I found in our backyard and here is the result of playing with the acrylic colours.

I gifted all three pots to our landlord for his flowers ☺ and he liked them a lot.

My husband practiced some chess since he couldn’t work (he is an online English teacher) and after I finished painting the pots, he asked me to teach him how to paint.
I gave him one of my older drawings and told him to start with it.

I think this is coming along very nicely. He didn’t enjoy it for a long time though because it started to get late and the darkness fell again on our house and yard.
He maybe will finish it tomorrow or by the next power outage. ☺
I think he will spend his spare time practicing some more chess instead. 

Blessed night/morning!

Captured for brushes and paints – My beloved Gus


I am glad I found this project called Sketch a day project by Artsy-Fartsy Human.
I became very inactive as it is relates to drawing and painting and I started to feel – especially the last few weeks – that I am wasting one of my biggest gifts from God.

I am not going to give any promises that I will work on my projects each day though the challenge is called Sketch a day project, but I will definitely practice more often. Painting is about feelings and expressions similar to writing and can’t be done under a pressure however I know some bigger projects are done by this way, but that’s more about a business not a spare time.

So here is my next painting from my series “Captured for brushes and paints”

Angry Gus

Angry Gus

Each winter swan males are fighting for their territory on the river. This shot was taken in winter 2008. Gus showed us how angry he can get and he didn’t allow to any swan enter his territory. They should swim far from his territory, but as soon as they entered the invisible borders he immediately attacked them.

********************************************

Anger

 

It loves to be fed
by delicious thoughts
and become yellowish red,
burning you from inside out,
giving you only nasty words.
Poisoning your mind and soul
and have you fully under control.
Don’t let it get you destroy,
your weapons are love and joy.
