Major e Longinquo Reverentia

I put the finishing touches to "Major e Longinquo Reverentia" (Viewed from a distance, everything is beautiful). This painting makes us to think of how we judge other people's life, rich and famous people, politics, places, jobs, etc... without knowing their reality.

The picture below is my latest artwork that I am working on now. I just transfered the outlines with my film projector to the paper and drew the lines with pencil. Now it is the time to choose the proverb and put the beads together. Obviously the figure on the composition is telling an advice. It must be short and a clear subject, because I don't have the long space to put it. I wanted to use "Carpe Diem" but it was way too short :)) Well, few more beads, that's it! I chose "Nil Desperandum" (Never give up!).

Acta Non Verba

My short vacation finished very quickly, back to the reality... Still working on the first coats of "Major e longinquo reverentia'' (Viewed from a distance, everything is beautiful). Advance stages soon will be here.

A finished painting called "Acto Non Verba" (Action, not words), I just found this photo in my camera's memory card that I have been forgotten to post it here.
I am a good listener more than a talker, so people "who likes to talk too much and do nothing about it" yes that is the reason of this painting. It's action time now!

Work in Progress Slide Show

Yesterday I finished "In Vino Veritas" (The truth is in wine). This time other than the hands I painted the wine glass as well. While I was working on it I took several pictures of it in different stages. Below you can see on the slide show.

Today I just started a new drawing called ''Major e longinquo reverentia'' (Viewed from a distance, everything is beautiful). I drew the outline and just put the first few layers of colours. Even in this ugly stage if you look from a distance it looks pretty good :)) I won't be in the studio till Monday, taking a small break in the south of our beautiful island. I will put pictures of it when I comeback...

Have a nice weekend!
