When I was in New York with my mom and sisters, I spent most of my days in the hospital with mom. When she slept, I'd sit in the break room that happened to be across from her bed, so I could keep an eye on her room while not disturbing her with any of my own activity. I found a work of art on the wall across from the seat I typically occupied ...and as time permitted, used it to inspire this work. I could never make out the artist's name, but what appealed to me about it was the seasonal light. It spoke to me of hope, warm weather, and yet the turning of the seasons.

 

And so, bit by bit, I painted, and with the act of painting, wove the hopes and prayers for my mom, and hope for another season of her life. She's improving daily, and I know that each time I view this image, it'll bring me right back to that room, right back to the memories of this particular season.

 

It's funny how the act of capturing a certain time, scene, or feeling in words or images can have such emotional attachments. I suppose that is what 'art' is all about ...and I'm grateful for it.

These are petals of giant Chilhuly made [glass] flowers which adorn the lobby ceiling at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas.......

 

Dedicated to me*voila who upon finding out I was off to Vegas wrote "enjoy all you see!! And please take a pic ( a Julian!) for me from that incredible chandelier (Chihuly) that is in one of those hotels". So I did.

For me, a landscape does not exist in its own right, since its appearance changes at every moment; but the surrounding atmosphere brings it to life - the light and the air which vary continually. For me, it is only the surrounding atmosphere which gives subjects their true value.

This series is the second published part from the set "Landscapes from a farm park south Milan" and they are enclosed in my first personal expo i had in 9th of september 2010 to 19 with my friend Mirko Bozzato, graphic designer and photographer. The farm park of south Milan is a reality which Mirko and I appreciate it's the biggest green area of Milan: a beautiful reality that needs to be protected by building speculation.

there's a gap in between

there's a gap where we meet

where i end and you begin

 

and i'm sorry for us

the dinosaurs roam the earth

the sky turns green

where i end and you begin

 

i am up in the clouds

i am up in the clouds

and i can't and i can't come down

 

i can watch but not take part

where i end and where you start

where you, you left me alone

you left me alone.

 

X' will mark the place

like parting the waves

like a house falling in the sea.

 

i will eat you all alive

i will eat you all alive

i will eat you all alive

i will eat you all alive

 

there'll be no more lies

there'll be no more lies

there'll be no more lies

there'll be no more lies

I always say and believe that landscape photography is one of the most diffecult filed in photography.

You have to go up and down and may risk your life for a great picture.

“During the winter months in the Po Valley , the fog is a part of the landscape, cold, dump, almost tangible.

Fog is moisture in the nostrils, is a limited landscapes. You feel isolated, almost blinded by the white. The gaze is limited and the fog tracks the boundaries.

 

There are places you always pass by, common places that turn invisible, canceled by the chaos of buildings and constructions.

The fog, greedy of space, grants you the crumbs of what encompasses, defines the boundaries forcibly, giving back, sarcastically, the most common details.

 

These details turn unique, eye-catching, aesthetically ready for photographic consecration.

The streets, the buildings and the fields are transformed into landscapes that you can only imagine. A pole, the wires of the light, a gasoline station is all that you can see.

They are the boundaries the fog gives you.”

 

CONFINI

 

"La nebbia in pianura padana, nei mesi invernali, è parte integrante del paesaggio, fredda, umida, quasi tangibile.

La nebbia è il freddo, l'umidità nelle narici, lo sguardo che fatica, il paesaggio che si chiude per isolare e delimitare lo sguardo, tracciare i Confini.

 

Ci sono luoghi davanti ai quali si passa spesso, luoghi talmente presenti da diventare anonimi immersi come sono nel caos dei fitti fabbricati dalla pianura.

La nebbia ne riscatta il loro valore; isolati dal resto del paesaggio, assurgono a linee di confine oltre le quali tutto è celato, misterioso: il paesaggio padano diventa metafisico, non più fisico. Lo senti, lo percepisci ma non lo vedi.

 

La nebbia è avida di spazio. Ti concede briciole di quello che ingloba, delimita forzatamente i confini, valorizza i dettagli, concedendoti sarcasticamente quelli che più vendono trascurati.

Li rende unici, accattivanti, esteticamente pronti alla consacrazione fotografica.

Le strade, gli edifici e i campi si trasformano in paesaggi che puoi solo immaginare. Un palo, i fili della luce, una stazione della benzina è tutto quello che ti viene concesso. Sono i confini forzati che la nebbia, avida, ti restituisce."

En geomorfología y geología, un cañón es un accidente geográfico provocado por un río que a través de un proceso de epigénesis excava en terrenos sedimentarios una profunda hendidura de paredes casi verticales. Es, pues, una especie de desfiladero ensanchado por la larga actuación de los procesos de erosión de hielo. Cuando el cañón es muy estrecho, apenas algo más de un par de metros, se conoce como cañón de ranura.

 

Otros orígenes de los cañones son:

 

Cañones kársticos, producidos por la incisión de una corriente fluvial más la karstificación.

Cañones asociados a fracturas, en las que también puede haber karstificación o un cambio del nivel de base.

Cañones de carácter estructural, como las cluses producidas en los relieves apalachanos.

En general, los relieves tabulares favorecen la presencia de cañones profundos asociados a fracturas, como sucede con las gargantas en terrenos calizos o cársticos.

This is another landscape from Virgil Carter's landscape class and based on the same view of a pond near my home. My intent here was to use contrasts and so while this is 'green' in some areas, I used yellow and Payne's grey - they made a neat green--- fun.

 

We're off with guests today on a tour of area potteries. While we as gardeners try our best to amend the clay soils around our homes in order to better grow plants, the talented potters in our area use the clay for some of the most wonderful vessels ---!!

 

I'll be gone until late this evening - so I'll catch up with everyone tomorrow! It's going to be brutally HOT -- stay safe and cool!

I painted this wintry landscape before I left to be with my mom. I was playing with some of my friend Doris' techniques (www.flickr.com/photos/djr-aquarelle/) and this was the result. It wasn't what I had hoped to post at the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012, but it sort of fits with the experiences I've had this week with my mom's illness.

 

She's suffering from Parkinson's disease, had a bad fall, a hip replacement, infection. Her condition seemed to be improving, but the roller coaster ride we've been on this week continues, and the optimism we felt yesterday, has been dashed today.

 

If I can use this painting as an anology, my sisters and I stand in the foreground, aware of the snow and the trees and the winter, and mom, sadly, stands in the magical light away from us - much like the etheral forest of this painting. At times, she joins us, othertimes, she's across a chasm ...

 

It's mighty sad, depressing, frightening, for us ... and more ... for her. We all deeply appreciate your prayers thoughts, encouragement. We'll all need the strength to endure this until the end, whenever that comes.

 

We know that we are not alone in this kind of challenge as we watch our beloved parents age and decline, and we lose them bit by bit ... physically and mentally.

 

Thank you for your patience as my family and I work our way through this...

 

I'll come home in a few days time to pick up the threads of my own life and my sisters try to fit this new challenge into their daily routines. I imagine I'll be making more frequent visits to see my sisters and mom and lend what support, encouragement and relief I can.

 

It's going to be quite a different new year than we had hoped for ...

 

But we're strong, we've got some wonderful support, and like many others, we'll come through this ... and we thank you for being with us through the long, journey ahead.

 

May 2012 be bright and surprise us all with miracles!
