JoYofArt feeling cotton cloudlike with “Blue Tree” from the dreams

Here is another favorite from the Artinternational, the great art fair held in Istanbul this weekend.
As a trilogy of “Yellow Tree Blue Tree Red Tree”, these cloudlike trees of David Nash were exhibited within Galerie Lelong Paris stand in the artfair. the blue one being one of my favorites, it gives such a cotton cloudlike feeling, pastel painting on paper successfully cascades a real imaginary : )

#arttoday “Swans Reflecting Elephants”, serene Friday by the water!

Calm, serene Friday to all..it’s the water as always, and its reflections

As a lover of water and a keen follower of perceiving water reflections everywhere I go, here is what I recalled and found  today, one of my favorite art pieces- “Swans Reflecting Elephants” by Salvador Dali, 1937. It brought the serenity I need towards the end of a tiring week and tough times, while in a transition of recovery and renewal.

"Swans Reflecting Elephants"

Oil  painting on canvas, this is a great work combining reflections on water with creative perception. It makes you feel as if really sitting down by the water and watching your mind, your thoughts transforming to images of your mind..

Down by the water, is where I love to both calm down and get inner-energized to go with the flow.

It’s the water, as my top motto and favorite phrase in life, that reflects & recalls the joy of life in me the most at all times, it unites the power to both hold on and let go; to go with the current as well sometimes to stand still against the cross-current.

Have to say at this point, my perception has been a lot in favor of elephants for the past days, so recalling this painting and capturing elephants as reflections of water is just a great match : )
