Website Redesigned!

 

I thought I was done! Never imagined myself redesigning my website every year.

Thankfully, I enjoy the creative process, but it is a lot of work.

My purpose of updating the Awapara.com website, or this blog for that matter, is to make it easier to navigate, appealing to the eye and user-friendly. I hope to improve with each change.

Best wishes,

Friday hugs to all🙂❤

Latest Artwork – Enchanted Forest collection

I imagine walking through forests where color has no boundaries, where sunlight lifts the spirit and where nature becomes part of one’s soul. I breathe in deep and exhale pure joy…

Painting: Under the Blue Light

It took me a while to finish this piece, but it is finally here.

It’s funny how each piece takes its own course. This one took a while, and lots of changes. I took so many pictures that I was able to create a video, with all these frames.

Below is a wonderful poem written by Wendell A Brown, one of my dear friend of the web-sphere. You should go check his blog. He wrote it specially for this post. His words are a blessing to the world. Many thanks Wendell!


There was a certain air of confidence every where
The moment I began to feel his eyes embrace
I knew that this would be a fantastic piece
As I felt the soothing energy alive within his face
 
There actually was a surprisingly shy moment
Where he let his guard down allowing me to see
That though his image seemed so very perfect
I begin to feel a genuine and selfless humanity
 
One would see this painting when its finished
They would surmise that it showed so much more
But in the moments which  the creative spirit flowed
There was really one thing he let me know for sure
 
That He only agreed to sit down and let me paint him
Understanding within me there was a genuine real need
To capture this side of his truly gentle  wonderful spirit
Because he saw he could not hide his truth from me
 
That through the  gorgeous smile and handsome looks
I could see the true charade played with others each day
And he wanted to finally end his daily ruse with  life
Letting his seemingly perfect self slip so very far away.
