Mystic Dolphin: panno in batik technigue
Author: ANNAmain • Date: 28 April 2010 at 04:57 PM Comments(3)

It is spring, the end of April. Cold, sunny, windy, cloudy, reiny and cold,  cold, cold… My internal calendar scream that cold weather should be finished.  So I imagine several decorative soft panno in batik and mixed technigues.

All cells of my body and soul need warm, grass and more then all - gentle touch of a sea. I found rest, peace and consolation in sea colors.

What is the essence of a sea? Waves, soft passage of colors, undulate lines. I sense it by skin and paint it and feel it in silence of mind.

Have you ever seen how change colors of sea near a seashore? Deep blue color of waves becames blue-green, emerald, then green, and at one moment you could openmind it as shadows of yellow, shadows of sun and sand.

I feel it as soft energy of endearment and love penetrates layers of sea water, and layers of our bodies and soul. Our blood has elements of a sea. We could open it deeply inside in what place soever. Just close you eyes and try to feel it.



Hot Report: Anomalistic weather in Moscow

Today, 25 of Apryl i was a witness of anomalistic weather. That year in Moscow we have ordinary weather: about +10-15 C degree, green grass and leafs. Today it was an ordinary morning with clouds and sun and breeze wind. Everything had changed in 5 minutes. Deep dark clouds covered all sky, then it began gray and then sharp snow mixed with snow flakes started. From my window 22 floor i could see the great panorama of nature disaster.

About 20 minutes it was catchy wind and snow flowed in horizontal direction. I had hardly opened the window and made next picture:

After 25 minutes of storm it stopped. Pretty sun came and shy everything, all things was magically  cleaned and i saw lovely picture of pure cheerful trees, roads, cars. So beautiful and exciting!

It seems as if the world was blessed and cheered for us! smile smile smile

Five persons and Sunday
Author: ANNAmain • Date: 13 April 2010 at 11:26 AM No comments

That Sunday, yesterday, my dear friends came to me and I thought it would be not bad idea to teach them how to dye fabrics. They brought several t-shirts to sacrificed it to such experiment.

Girls seemed like heroes because it was the first time they did it. With all courage we bathed the t-shirt in colors with 4 hands. I joked, t-shirt seemed to be fainted therefore not to hinder us.

We worked hard and won!

One of t-shirts was in grass green color; our fingers and nails too.

From my previous experiences all my clothes was sluiced by colors. Therefore I choose for myself an ugly orange+green+black-something blouse and I planed to drop it at the rest of the day. But girls acted carefully and no one drop of color touched my blouse (it means the blouse still with me).

This t-shirt was colored into sky-blue. Irina did it with great success.

Then it was the time to dye something pink… strong pink, I dare say.

 After dyeing we had some tea with cakes and dried t-shirts. Not bad! My back had a hard work  with every dyeing t-shit and control the process. Then we started to make fine work with brushes.

Irina chose to make it by free hand painting.

Neta did it with text.

More, more gold grass!

I had to help gils with brushes etc, and was a witness how the picture growth… it was the fish!

We all worked hard!

It was the picture of Snake with flower instead it’s head.

At the rest of the day I taught friends how to make a special dyeing with drops.

This is the real heroes! They did really great job! smile))

Actually the point is how to continue to do the thing even if you are tired of it. It is true to said the hardest part of my projects has finished and I am glad to notice it!

  My friends said it seems as Anna is something like mashine, never stops and clealy know what to do. But many times I felt myself empty and lost. Several times it was so exhosting activity then I wished to close my eyes and forget everything.
The secret is to allow youself to have a rest for a while and then with samurai`s determination do it next time.
Now I completed 2 sites and . Next 2 projects are postponed for a small time but i designed it`s main idea.
