I’m such a child.
These are friggin AWESOME. The detail and accuracy at that scale is utterly remarkable.
Do we take the time to see that this is a part of our renaissance or rather continual naissance? Our birth of the new forms of arts.
These are surely just the same. Arts pushing boundaries and evolving as they must with the time, using anything it can to thrive and stay alive.
These are our generations young new artists doing the same as those artists did then. The rebels, the visionaries the ones who continually surprise us and move us so masterfully forward.
Like the rappers, I believe, our new voice of poetry, not all perhaps, but the great and the bright and even film scores surely our new equivalent classical composers.
Because it did not sound classical or old to them then did it? It was current then, and often groundbreaking even.
Wasnt it, of it’s time, a revolution of the old. Its ancestors natural evolution and progression onwards?
Though it is true that often Art is soberly lead to where the money is In Film most definitely too, that’s where people now get paid to write scores for film and tv. Which is no differently to a king or nobleman commissioning a portrait in the 15 C.
Which undoubtedly has always coloured the freedom of some arts over the centuries.
This is not.
This has no money attached to it, no rules, just Art straight and free from the heart.
And you gotta love that. X
Sadly true 😂
I have just returned from a fabulous 4 day break in the country, by the sea with some of my fabulous friends.
We did everything we could fit in. Walked up rivers, along beaches, mooched around the beautiful town, saw a fab castle, a pretty church, climbed hills, swung over rivers, went on tiny railroads and even did a bit of wild swimming.
Well not me exactly, as the half Italian in me does not permit me to be able to swim anywhere chilly. Lol. I am without a doubt a fair weather creature that thrives in a hot place and by the sea best.
I realised that I physically NEED s time with elements, as It genuinely seems to feeds my soul. Nothing quite restores like nature does.
Apart from nature with gorgeous friends, kids and dogs that is.
I am a Part Rock chic, yes absolutely. I love people and cities. Capitals especially because I love the diversity, the buzz and the cosmopolitanism. That feeds me too, but I am also the kind of tree hugger and lover that is happy to wander through the woods just listening birdsong, the wind in the leaves or any and all water and get lost for hours.
Maybe because I am half extrovert and half introvert perhaps I feel like I need both. But I am guessing we may all need this balance of life and peace, people and trees. Community and communing with nature and the earth. Grounding ownself. This seems like equilibrium to me.
Spending this time amongst the green trees, blue skies, seas and rivers makes me feel alive, healthy and happy and revitalised.
This photo above was the view Just coming out of the local pub at 10.30 at night. After trying the rather strong local scrumpy cider, which is very alcoholic apple juice basically. A speciality in Somerset after all, so it had to be done.
We had a delicious meal and then came out to this stunning view at 10.30 at night. So understandably I am feeling super grateful and restored.
Followed by Flopping down with full bellies to lay out with cushions and covers to look at the glorious star lit sky all together. What more could I want.
I realised this post was turning into an epic, and there are so many photos to show. So now a pair of posts perhaps, for a little alliteration or even a trilogy even if needs be, starting with this day one.
I Love my friends, I love this planet, being with my son and thier amazing bouncing nee flying dog !
More on that tomorrow with photos to prove it.
Love to all of you Big hearts. X
