feather dance

watercolour on arches
300 gsm cp fine

28 x 38 cm
leave me a feather
resting in my palm
so light bearing no weight
yet heavy on my heart
fly, fly through cloudless sky
like notes on endless lines
accompanied by top notes that sing
soul which in middle lies
allowed to dance freely
here in is the joy
here in is to love
________
watercolour with no preliminary drawing & poem inspired by the beautiful music of
A Solo Piano Odyssey

Thank you Jo for your kind thoughts on my piano rendition of your Planet Earth!
Also your feedback on my poem inspired by your beautiful music
The Feather Dance

Stupende! La classe della semplicità, la cosa più difficile che ci sia. Amo i tuoi acquerelli. In casa i miei genitori hanno sempre spinto noi ragazzi a cercare una via artistica. Anche se ho preso la strada della scrittura e dell'acting ho sempre positivamente invidiato i talentuosi come te.

Beautiful, lovely washes so light and carefree!

Fernando Pena said...

Perugina, lovely softness, like it a lot, I'm glad you are painting watercolors.

Billie Crain said...

Such beauty and simplicity. You managed to capture the almost weightless quality of the feathers. I love the looseness, too! I believe the break was good for you, Perugina. You're on a roll now!

This is so beautiful.
Its so soft and light.
It seems to float.
It has a fineness about it that makes you want to look at it all day.
Also love the poem. Beautiful words.
So good to see you back painting these wonderful creative pieces.

What a great painting, I love the composition, and as others have said you really captured the weightless quality of feathers.
Stunning!

Perugina, sei tornata e sei tornata alla "grande"!! Questo tuo ultimo lavoro è un incanto per la sua leggerezza, trasparenza e semplicità......le tre cose più belle in un'acquerello!!

Ciao Italo.. grazie tanto! Sei troppo gentile con le tue parole.
Sono d’accordo riguardo la simplicita` come indossare un vestito ricordando la donna!
Che ami i miei acquarelli mi lascia tanta contenta.

I tuoi genitori hanno fatto bene dare la spinta a voi verso una via artistica.. i miei non tanto quando ero piu` giovane, pero adesso hanno visto che il mio destino e` di essere creativa.. spero che non e` troppo tardi per me, credo che lo sia ma faccio del meglio.. solo questo posso fare, e sono contenta.

Non essere invidioso.. abbiamo tutto un dono e siamo tutti noi talentuosi! Ancora grazie.


Krista !.. to have your support by way of your feedback and frequent visits leaves me very encouraged – thank you for your kind thoughts.


Hi Fernando.. thank you for your kind thoughts.. i’m glad to be back and painting in watercolours, it's a beautiful medium!


Hi Billie!.. Thank you again for taking some time to stop by and leave these very kind thoughts ’such beauty and simplicity’ - most encouraging.
I’m trying to continue developing a looser style – not an easy task when you lean towards drawing – which I do!
Your comment ’you managed to capture the weightless quality of the feathers’ is also what I aimed for – thank you! :)
The break was good.. happier still that I am painting again – I love it!


Hi Morgaine.. thank you for stopping by, nice to ‘see you’, your feedback is much appreciated.


Hi L..your support has been constant. So happy that you like this painting and accompanying poem enough to leave such wonderful words of encouragement! They are much needed at present and help to spur me on!
Thank you so much!


Hi Wendi.. What a wonderful encouraging comment on many elements which make this piece!! Thank you so much! I’m glad to be back and happier still to have this wonderful/continued support from you – X


Hi Maria.. thank you so much for taking the time to support me on my artistic journey, your encouragement is much appreciated.
That you say ’stunning’ is high praise indeed!


Hi Tito.. incoraggiando il tuo commento sul mio acquerello, mi lascia senza parole!
Cerco solamente fare del mio meglio.
La ringrazio molto per il vostro continuo sostegno, e` molto aprezzato – un abbraccio!

Miriam said...

Ciao Patricia: che rientro strepitoso!!! Le sento volteggiare leggere, delicate, e altrettanto soavemente si posano. Con acqua e pigmenti hai saputo creare l'emozione e la perfezione di queste piume che sembrano "uscire" dal mondo delle fate!

perugina said...

e un mio sognio di poter, in italiano, scrivere parole cosi d'incoraggiamento, che hai scritto qui Miriam. Mi lascia senza parole.
Grazie tanto per il continuo sostegnio che mi dai nella pittura, un fortissimo abbraccio.

Srishti said...
