#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.

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 : )

Also don’t miss the celebrative tradition of watching the bridge openings at night! Starting with the white nights, every night all the bridges are stopped for traffic and opened. Below is one from yesterday night at 01.40 A.M. on Neva River – Dvortsovvy Most bridge.
It’s almost getting dark at 01.40  at night, with people watching both on riverside and on boats for with the bridge boat tours visiting most bridge openings within a 1,5 hour tour!
