My Art Luxury Paintings Speak And Communicate In A Unique Artistic Language

My Art Luxury Paintings Speak And Communicate In A Unique Artistic Language

We humans are uniquely created
As is Art and Artistic Expression in every form of Creativity!

When I paint a Luxury Painting, I pour my heart and soul into my Artwork

My mostly; Abstract, Expressionism – Luxury Paintings become an adventurous journey!

I ‘travel’ through the creative process – I feel the deeply spiritual connection to the subject/ Theme.

In order to describe the completed product, The Luxury Painting, that I have created, needs a descriptive title, a name 


I reflect on my creative journey…

My Cultural Diverse Artwork, The World at Large, Cultures in Depth, not just ‘nations/ Culture of countries’ – Cultural – Diversity

I usually always know my subject/ Theme, before I commence painting, the Luxury Painting(s)

What happens though, is a deep connection, a love, a guidance, a flow, if you like…

The Naming, The ‘Baptism’ 

As for me, The Artist, The Painter,

How do I feel as a person, a being of love – before, during and after the creative Luxury Painting process?

What do I, The Painter, wish to show, educate into awareness and share with the world at large?

Creatively Dedicated Artists Painters People Always Find A Way

Here I am with my headlamp during the Painting of one of my recent Luxury Paintings – Irish !

Not even an electrical power outage – will ever stop me from painting!

MHAngelis – Painter

What do miners, climbers, mechanics, trades people, others and ‘unstoppable’ Artists’ Painters’ have in common… ?

Headlamps !

Yes, headlamps!

When I am working – painting throughout the night / Or day in my indoor Art studio or outside in my outdoor Art studio and I need more light – I put on my Headlamp and continue!

I continue painting my Luxury Paintings, creating my Luxury Art pieces !

It is always important to have a few headlamps, fully charged before hand and – – – Go!

NB: Regular headlamp breaks are important!

The Exhilaration Buzz Of New Stationery Arts Crafts Supplies

Advertisements

Ever since I was a child, I felt exhilarated whenever I walked into a stationery store, received my new stationery for another new year at school, entered Painters’, Artists’ Crafters’ stores, or even hardware stores! A total buzz for us Artists

One of my most memorable times was, as a tourist. I got ‘lost’ in an absolutely gigantic – enormous store that went on and on and on in items, storage, shelving and endless choices!

This was Artists’ Painters’ Crafters’ paradise!!!

Back in Australia, there weren’t any stores as enormous as this store that I knew of – anywhere!

‘Had I hopped on a Rainbow, riding on the rays?’

– MHAngelis – Painter

There were what seemed like, kilometres and kilometres of endless colours of items – same in different shades, brands and sizes !

I spent most of the day’s daylight in there because it was late morning when I entered the monstrosity and by the time I exited, it was that part of the day that one knows the sunlight is about to start winding down.

That store catered for every Artists’ dream supplies!

I had a budget, but like a child in a candy store, I had to make decisions and sacrifices on those decisions!

Overwhelmed, is a perfect way to describe The Exhilaration Buzz Of New Stationery Arts Crafts Supplies before me!

Back in my Art studio, I continued and continue to paint and create…

Word of Advise to All non Painters’ Artists’ Crafters’

When a Painter, Artist, Crafter announces “I need, or I want to get…”
There is no such of “You have enough!” Or “You have enough already!” An insult to us!

As a matter of fact ‘We’ Artisans – Virtuosos can never have enough supplies. We are Always Creating, Arting, Painting, Perfecting our Craft(s) –

Luxury Paintings!

We The Painters, We The Artists, We The Crafters

Are Constantly Creating

We Can Never, Ever, Have Enough !

Poem – My Painters Easels And I Always Have A Great Time!

Poem – My Painters Easels And I Always Have A Great Time!

© Marisa Angelis – Artist

Poem – My Painters Easels And I Always Have A Great Time!

Describing my Painters’ tools like that of something alive
Here’s why…

Sometimes in Studio
Sometimes out amongst the trees with the birds, bees, butterflies, pets and all insects

We go together here and there

My Easels and I work together

My Art Painters Easels And I Always Have A Great Time! – MHAngelis (Painter) / Marisa Angelis (Artist)

They Are Made From Wood

My Easels Are Alive!!!
Natural
They are from Nature

They Were Once Upon A Time, Long Ago

Part of Trees
Branches
Trunks
They still feel somewhat Alive!

We are professionally attached and they are sentimental to me

Part of my Every day Life’s Career

Painter
Artist

Professionally

They were ‘whacked’ together – an Australian term
Made by my father

Dad is so clever and they display
Creatively
My Luxury Paintings

He brought them and joined them together

So quickly in front of me
Amazingly!!!

Such a long time ago…

My, my, how time flies!!!

Though how humbly
Everlasting
Sustainable
Eco
Environmentally friendly!!!

Wood, minimal metal and layers of paint…

My finishing touch
Engraved in the centre ledge panel is my Painters’ name / Signature
‘ MHAngelis ‘

“Don’t no one touch ‘em!!!”

My Easels!

They help me in Arting, in Painting, In work
They Exhibit my Luxury Paintings

I can display them high
I can display them low
They are meant to be
They are meant for me

As only I know how
How to use my tools,
My Easels
With my Canvases in all their angles and ways

Not even over the years have any of my pets tried to claim them!

My Easels have always been respected…

They are untouchable to all but me!

They aren’t fancy in appearance
They aren’t something from the store

They are unique
They are priceless
They are something more…

They serve all my intended Painters’ purposes
‘And’
They were made with love!

!

Naturally Drawn To The Colour White For My Painters’ Signature

Ahhh… White!
Where would we be without the colour white…?
White. Some Say That White Is Not A Colour, I disagree!

Painters, Photographers, Decorators, we need ‘ White ‘

White paint for mixing and making lighter, paler colours

To blend

To brighten!


This is not an advert for laundry detergent!
This is my opinion, The Painter, The Artist, Photographer, Designer for the use and visuality of White

Many cultures and traditions use the colour White to represent positive or negative – celebrations, commemorations, memorials and remembrances

White is Light
An Epiphany of colour! (January 6)
A blessing, a celebration of/ For blends within colours
White is the Lightest colour with no hue

Why do I use white to sign my Painters’ signature ?
Naturally Drawn To The Colour White For My Painters’ Signature

White is ‘ Light ‘
White came naturally to me for my Painters’ signature
White is my guiding colour ‘Light

I find that White adds a lovely touch amongst other colours used in Painting and other objects of Art or decor

White, for me, is my brilliant Colour!

I Like The Colour Grey… Why Do People Find It Confusing?

Advertisements

Although my schooling started in Australia, my understanding of literacy commenced when learning American/ US English at night school in Europe and then British UK English when re settling into my Australian – British UK schooling again.

It was in Australia when I realised (realized) that Grey is Gray as well!

Mix Black with White and we have Grey/ Gray!

I Like The Colour Grey… Why Do People Find It Confusing?

Personally, I do not find Grey confusing

Grey or Gray is a versatile ‘include me’ anywhere colour/  Color in Paintings – decor or even attire!

Grey, may be a prominent  Stand Out colour

Grey, may be a Blend In – Shade In – Fade In with the rest Colour

What a lovely colour it is!?

Grey, is an interesting mix of colour, so much so, that when I paint, artwork or look at Gray, it is a ‘malleable’ colour

My Luxury Paintings often feature the colour – color – – Grey – Gray 

At one of my Art Exhibitions of Paintings, an Art Viewer/ Admirer turned to me with; ‘You make Grey look Beautiful’.  Humbled by the delightful remark and glad that someone likes my usage of Grey, I had that ‘Yea!’ moment

“When It Comes To Painting I Am Professionally Greedy Painter Artist!”

Greedy for the best Paint to mixing Colours to Create my work of Art!

The Paint

The Painting

The Surface

The Canvases

The Brushes

Stationery…. Ahh! ! !

We all Like and Love a Fantastic Outcome!
It makes us Feel – Happy!
Hence one of my mottos “Happy Art!”

Before any outcome though,

There is Preparation
The ‘Feel’ and Go – To – The – Journey – of – The Painting!

Allow me to explain…

Painting is not a sporting race, sometimes though, it is a race against The Paints’ drying time!

Speaking, or writing of time… Over time, I have developed my own Rhythm into my unique Artistic style MHAngelis Painter – Marisa Angelis – Artist.
This is how it is, this is who I am, a Professional Painter Artist

‘Greedy’ for Paint, To Paint, To Create Colour – Lots and Lots of Colour or Color (depending on the spelling you relate to)

‘Relate’ Now that I am here and you have come this far…

My Paintings – My Luxury Paintings – To – You – Relate !

Until next time… I ask

My Brushes Are Made Of Natural Wood And Bristles, They Feel Great To Work With

Painters Brushes – photograph 2020 – Marisa Angelis – Artist Photographer

When I paint with brushes
I chase the paint on my canvas that rushes
My brushes need to be of natural wood and bristles, they feel great to work with…
There are positive rules
For all my Artistic tools
In order to progress
As The Artist and The Painter
I Art, I work with the best
This assists the organic feel and flow

My spirit

My heart

My soul

Expresses in Abstract

In Vibrant Colour

As I art it

As I create it
As I work it
Nurture my flow
Nurture my strokes

Nurture my blends

Before me

My product portrays – Happy Art!

From my Spirit and my Soul…

Then it is off to the trough and the sink

That drinks

The liquid paint

That washes off

My hands

My brushes

Out of my glass jars…

With yet again…

Bristles maintained

Brushes wiped and left to dry

When I work with organically made tools

My artwork feels authentic

My artwork

Is a work, a piece complete

Of Luxury Fine Art

With the next piece in progress or again, about to start!

Delighted That Visitors Signed, Dated And Commented My Book

What a great honour and opportunity that my life’s career presented !

At my Artworks Exhibitions, I always positioned a table by my carefully – precision display of Luxury Paintings, Mosaics, Poems, Art Models and Handmade / Designed Jewelry / Jewellery – Luxury Necklaces

There I was, as the public entered, ready to welcome, meet and greet as many curious and enthused people that arrived

“Welcome to my Art Exhibition, I am Marisa Angelis the Artist, would you like a flier? If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask”

When their viewing was almost over, people would make their way towards me and I would ask, if they would like to sign my Visitors book or stop myself from asking, as I noticed most people would automatically pick up the attached pen and happily sign my visitors book.

Of course I felt delighted that visitors signed, dated and commented my book!

In this blog, I have selected to share some of the comments and feedback that I received from people / Critics, as well as several of my Luxury Paintings that were also presented at real/ non virtual exhibiting!

Are You The Artist, On The Radio Station?

In 1999, I approached Radio Stations in Adelaide, South Australia and became a regular guest poet and share presenter with one of the most popular FM bandwidth Australian Greek radio stations that reaches listeners world wide.

For my introduction, I discussed my Art work, Luxury Paintings and how Cultural Diversity – Australia, Multiculturalism and the Environment are the core of my Creativity.

Back then no one knew the term Cultural Diversity or what it was/is.  

I am the person who brought forth and made ‘Cultural Diversity’ known through various media channels.  

The term; Cultural and Diversity was brought together in 1998 after a deeply personal experience shook my awareness of people and cultures and how they saw each other. 

One night, as I sat on a red sofa, I opened the dictionary and looked at both words, bringing them together; Cultural Diversity.

In 1999, the media journalists; newspapers, sporting clubs, industries were becoming aware of and ‘picked up’ on ‘Cultural Diversity’ !

I continued to recite my Poetry, hosting competitions and participating in extensive interviews, including Talk Back with listeners throughout Australia and the World which remains another highlight of my career.

My weekly radio segment brought a little happiness and excitement into the lives of many listeners with opportunities for the general public to win and grin, as I offered my up-cycled art pieces and painting ‘Idols’ as prizes!

My interviews were in English, Greeklish, Greek and I had a wonderful time ‘brushing up’ on my Greek!

This experience was educational; I crafted my language skills, it built confidence in me – The professional Artist and Poet and I was truly honoured that my poetry was being enjoyed by a great number of listeners!

From time to time people of all backgrounds and walks of life, would ask “Are you the Artist, on the radio station?” 

Whilst my regular weekly segment was happening, I was invited to another two Radio stations; On FM bandwidth, one was for Australian Ethnic broadcasting that broadcasted throughout Australia and the other on AM bandwidth International, reaching listeners all over the world!

A tremendous opportunity for me to discuss my Art Paintings and Poetry / Jewelry/ Jewellery / Art Models/ Mosaics and exhibitions as well as inviting everyone to view my Art in galleries, establishments, festivals and anywhere else that my Art was being exhibited.

At my time with the International radio station, I was offered my own Radio program. 

The phone wouldn’t stop ringing, interest and popularity was strong, Theodoris the presenter, handed me a microphone, “The mics yours! Please come back, people love what you are doing, people relate to you… Look, the phone hasn’t stopped ringing the whole time we have been on air!”

Not only was being on Radio fun and interesting… I was overwhelmed by the public’s genuine interest and liking of my artworks – my Luxury Paintings, my knowledge of diverse subjects and representing Cultural Diversity for The Goodness of Humanity!

Cultural Diversity does not only represent a place/ Country, ancestry… Cultural Diversity represents variety, broadmindedness and everything in Life!

You Laid The Foundations For My Artistic Journey Ahead… We Just Didn’t Know It At That Time. I Suppose Destiny And Love Work Like That

My beautiful late Pappou/ Grandfather, was a Greek islander of Anatolian descent. His professions included; Saddler, Farmer, Market Gardener, Soldier and Army Cook, Soap Maker and Distributor during the great depression and a Butcher’s Apprentice. Pappou was a champion Backgammon player and above all a Kind Gentleman as remember by many and those who loved and knew him.

After my Grandparents married they helped raise and support my grandmothers’ three younger siblings and her young widowed mother who outlived my Grandfather. Later in life, my Great Grandmother informed me that my Grandfather was an angel.

Whilst in the army, a fellow Greek ship accidentally blew up my Grandfather and his platoon, mistaking them for the enemy. My Grandfather and a fellow soldier the only two survivors had to bag body parts.

My late Grandparents’ love for each other, was so strong that before the news broke out about the blast, my late Grandmother was on her knees, newly wedded and praying that her husband would be safe.

Amongst his pets Pappou had Tzak, the dog, many cats, horses, donkeys and goats.

Towards the end of the war, Pappou, learnt to converse in Italian with a small group of Italian soldiers, swapping goods for goods, so that he could carry out his soap making.

Immigrating to Australia my Grandparents became Australian.  Proud to be Hellenes/ Greek, excited and anxious to commence their new life in Australia. They had a cat which was very playful, a lot of fun and always performing tricks. Pappou worked extremely hard on the South Australian railways and later in a factory, was self sufficient, cooked and carried out many chores, kept a huge garden of vegetables, herbs and fruit trees; including one of my favourites, wild Cherry trees!

When Pappou planted a wild cherry tree in our backyard and it started growing…  I would go to the tiny non fully grown cherries, pick them…. Hold the miniature cherries in my hand and squeeze them, as I watched the liquid cherry reddish/ purplish colour, rush and run all over my hand and so my excitement, my inspiration for liquid colour – Paint began at an early age!  I noticed how the liquid stained my hand and started rolling it around on my skin – ‘Wow’ !

Above: Luxury Painting ‘ Liberty ‘ by MHAngelis – © MarisaAngelis-Artist.com

“Marisa, leave the cherries to grow so we can eat them…”  But little did dad know, what I had discovered! 

When I was a toddler Pappou would sit me on his knee and I would play with his orange beaded komboloi/ Komboloyee, Greek ‘happy’ pass time beads.  Many years later, I found one of the orange komboloi beads tossed in my late Grandparents garage and knew that Pappou was ‘talking’ to me.  One bright orange bead –

“Yiassou (Hello) Pappou!”

Above: I am wearing the Orange Bead from Pappou’s Komboloi (MarisaAngelis-Artist.com)

Pappou’s komboloi of beads, was my creative embedding for designing and creating beaded Luxury Necklaces / Jewellery – Jewelry!

Pappou would have Loved this Necklace ‘Harmony’ perhaps for Yiayia! In his favourite colours – Orange and Carnelian, Handmade, Designed and Created by Marisa Angelis

Whenever my father tried to renovate; repair windows with putty, little fingers followed – I was a crafter from way back!

Sorry dad!  You had to re apply everything twice – maybe even three times!  

I’d follow and watch dad making, fixing, building, growing, nurturing everything!

I was fascinated with creativity!

Dad and Pappou, You Laid The Foundations For My Artistic Journey Ahead… We Just Didn’t Know It At That Time. I Suppose Destiny And Love Work Like That

Pappou was the first of all grandparents to see me and hold me when I was born.  

Three nights before a major life changing event, I dreamt of late Pappou!

In life, I remember his lovely presence and his love for me.

I believe that my Pappou Angelis always watches over me.  I have always felt his love and spiritual presence. 

There are always signs; 

Pappou is the Magpie that sings to me and the Monarch butterfly that flutters before me!

Sage – In the Garden, Gardening

Sage – On Holidays – Sleeping

I named him Sage and he rushed to me without hesitation and the breeder announced; “take him!  He’s yours!”  “He even has your eyes” Laughing out loud – that’s what she said!

Sage barks; ‘dinner is ready, humans naughty, dogs near, stop… Wait, you left without… Go back’ – Synchronised everything! 

Blocks my path. ‘Something’s not right!’ ‘Get it right… !’ “Thank you Sage! Good Dog!”

Sage’s eyes bulge out ‘did you see that?!” Or he will say “Come! Come!” (“Ellahh! Ellahh!”) in Greek!

Sage once discovered a koala in my backyard!

Sage likes girl pooches, tried to jump on a few after being approached by them first as they stuck their tongues on him or laid down flat out in front of him! Hilarity as the other dog owners get surprised! Their girls are tarts!

Children will always yell “Pug!  Pug!”

Sage is a beautiful loving pet and family member.

Sage was named after The Three Wise Men! ‘The Sages’

“Button nose Sage, is a legend, a Fun Guy!”

Smile…. What Are You Waiting For

“What if there is a dog breed that has Pug and King Charles Cavalier, is golden brown in colour, gentle, patient, helpful and kind just like a Rottweiler only miniature?”  

Pugalier or Pug X

After five months, I was ready for my next pet dog.

Pugaliers were difficult to find in South Australia and I was hoping to meet the pup to ‘be’ and see if the pup chose me.

Winter, heavy stormy weekend, Saturday morning and I awoke after a dream with an inkling.

The local newspapers’ pet section read, ‘Pugalier puppies ready to go; one male, two females…’ Just like that ‘Wow!’ This is the one!  

In the dream, my friend who had passed appeared with Cavalier pups.

On the phone, the breeder said all three pups were still available.

My father accompanied me through the now wild storm to Strathalbyn, passing paddocks with horses, stables, scrub, getting lost and asking horse riders and locals for directions…. 

Wrong turn!

“Dad, I don’t know what this intersection is, there’s no sign!”

It was dark and then, suddenly, the rain stopped, the sun shone and the most gigantic rainbow appeared over us as we drove through admiring the vibrant colours …

This was The Sign!

The pups’ mother kissed my hands as the male puppy entered the room observing me. I looked at his cuteness, ‘Hello…   Come’ and he did!

A website of the same name enabled the world to view Peoplescape Figures and stories.

The installation covered the landscape and figures withstood gale-force winds, rain and sunshine attracting audiences who wandered through ‘the Peoplescape exhibition’, reading the inspirational stories of both women and men whilst enjoying the creative effort of each and every Peoplescape figure.

The ABC Television (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) broadcasted the live concert nationally from Canberra, Australia’s capital with leading Australian entertainers celebrating the spirit of the Australian people and featured The Peoplescape exhibition.
