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 !

Multiculture and Multiculturalism – There is no pure race on planet Earth

Since ancient times, we humans are so mixed, so multiracial, so Pandemos Diaspora !

We have descended from the descended, that it has become impossible to think of ourselves of being from one or a few ‘other‘ countries!

Most of us descend from several nations and a few or more continents!

Born in…  I’m from with… Multiracial ancestry, mainly from…

Ah…!  That’s why 

Oh no, not really…!

I strongly resemble …

We take from seven generations on either side of our biological parents, however, if we have step parents – especially from age 0-3, it is possible that we tend to subconsciously mimic stepparents’ body language /expression.

Passionate People From All Walks Of Life Spreading Cultural Awareness

Advertisements

In 2009 I established a Facebook group and later page ‘THE ART OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY BY MARISA ANGELIS’, To unite people from all walks of life, to contribute their passions, to share, network and express – for ‘Passionate People From All Walks Of Life Spreading Cultural Awareness’

Tell us about your; Life Career Hobbies An experience that left an impact Favourite film, talents, skills, causes –  Anything that is spreading cultural goodness and awareness to your fellow human kind is most welcome – let us respect each other and have fun!  Education is fun!”

“THE ART OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY BY MARISA ANGELIS was created and designed to Educate”

Advertisements

At the reaching point of over one thousand members, Facebook changed the way members viewed each other in group pages, so after almost five years, I ended the page because the type of interaction that was once happening slowly seized.

The group page was an interesting experience and blend of people; with marketers, supporters, ‘fun-sters’, givers, takers and some fakers!

Members included people from Europe, Asia, Africa, Arab countries, USA, Australia and everywhere else in the world!

Spreading Hope Through My Suns And Sunshine

Advertisements
Swimming – MHAngelis – Marisa Angelis – Artist

Throughout my life’s Luxury Art Paintings, I have often painted the sun and sunshine!

Spreading Hope Through My Suns And Sunshine!!!

The shapes of my suns’ depictions were first pointed out to me by a visiting gentleman at one of my Art exhibitions of Luxury Paintings.  

A hobby painter, he radiated with delight when he spoke about the shape of my ‘suns’

He said, “I thought you might like to know that I have picked up on your suns!” I wasn’t sure what he was referring to and looked at him slightly puzzled…

He said “All of your work here is great! I want to point out to you that I noticed, you have a distinct style with suns. You paint suns in a certain way that I have never seen before…. I will tell you, I am a guy that goes to art exhibitions and I have been to hundreds of them… I have never, never, seen painted suns like yours!  I really like your suns!” 

After I thanked him, he called out enthusiastically to his wife and daughter, introducing us whilst explaining to them what he had just informed me of – the painting style of my suns!

The ladies followed him as he showed them to the paintings with the suns. The trio thanked me and wished me “All the very best with your career and keep on with your art painting!

My Fascination With All Awesome Things Of Ocean Sea

Advertisements

My Fascination With All Awesome Things Of Ocean Sea  inspired part of my Artistic obsession!

I often joke when people ask me what my heritage is, I tell them my DNA is Ocean and my ancestors were Sea…. 

It is true though because most of my ancestry’s history hails from islands, and coasts, the Ocean – Sea

Born on The island of Australia! Australia is an island surrounded by Sea

The Ocean and the Sea – Tend to follow me

I create Ocean Sea themes – A large part of my Art!

During my art exhibitions, Art of Sea themes, filled with subjects of the Ocean – Luxury Paintings, Poetry, Models, Costume Jewellery – Luxury Necklaces and Mosaics!

Paint with brush in hand, or fingers, I may even use my toe – you never know!

I will create on canvas or any other surface

It Is Joy From My Soul That Pours Into Paint Colour That Mixes Blends And Shades Into My Work Of Transforming Art Into My Final Product Of Fine Luxury Paintings

Advertisements

“Colour!  For those of us who are fortunate, to see it, indeed what a Wonderful gift it is!”

Of course Colour dominates my Artwork!

Before I begin, I would like to add that, Black and White, as I ‘see’ them both are Colours!

Where would we be without them both?!

When it comes to paint, black and white are mostly necessary for mixing, blending and transforming.

Today’s write up though, isn’t about Black or White, it is about Colour!

This reflects in and throughout my Paintings and Artwork

Many times throughout my career, I have been asked if I use paint colours directly out of, tube, container, jar or bottle?

For those of you who are wondering, my answer is No 🙂

I always mix my paint Colour

I am often complimented with;

“Your work is very Colourful”, “I like the Colours You Use”, “You use really nice Colours”, “you definitely know how to mix and blend Colour”, “You know how to match Colours well” and many other wonderful ‘pick ups’ on/ Of my Artwork!

Great!” I say to myself, they saw it, they picked up on my Colour Expression !!!

It Is Joy From My Soul That Pours Into Paint Colour That Mixes, Blends And Shades Into My Work Of Transforming Art Into My Final Product Of Fine Luxury Paintings…

It is Your reflection from my Art Colour to You!

You will ‘see’ Feel, what reflects to Your Soul

Red, Yellow, Pink, Blue, Purple, Orange, Green, Black, White, Silver, Gold and Everything else inbetween!

My Artworks Paintings are Luxury Paintings – Love Soul Spirit and Happiness is always poured into them through paint Colour, Design and Creation…

Final Product – Luxury Painting(s)

Clean pristine beaches and the awe wonderful Kangaroo Island, a fantastic attraction, a must for any visitor.

Are You The Artist, On The Radio Station?

All Artwork Images Photography, Text / Blog / Story

Advertisements

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!

A Dandelion Is Such A Surprise, Like That Of Winning A Garden Prize!

I have found the wonderful, mystical, simplistic pleasure in observing, holding and enjoying the visual and sensational experience of a Dandelion!

A Dandelion is a Whimsical Flower,

Here is how it goes…

Amongst the shrubs, flowers and the buds

Oh how I enjoy gardens!

Nature, so beautiful, any season of the year.

Colours, shapes, varieties, uniqueness

They are all there, in the garden!

Like when I drift into Painting, that is my my special bliss!

Advertisements

A garden doesn’t necessarily need to be lovely manicured.

A garden may be wild, with bees and butterflies floating and then all of a sudden a Dandelion appears!

Slightly waving and peaking above the rest

How thrilled I become…

I cut it with its stem!

A Dandelion Is Such A Surprise, Like That Of Winning A Garden Prize!

Now in my gentle clutch it will remain throughout my expedition walk,

As I make my way through my adventure of another beautiful garden.

A Dandelion flower, plant is so special

One of the best…!

It is fluffy,

It is delicate,

Intricate

A Dandelion is abstract!

A Dandelion flower plant is such a surprise, like that of winning a garden prize!

It Remains Forever Embedded Into My Creative Being…

₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪ ARCHITECTURE ₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪ ₪ ₪ ₪ ₪

It all began when my family took me for a trip to The Hellenic Republic/ Greece.

My curiosity and intrigue developed when I sat on my father’s shoulders for the ultimate tour, as we all walked through the ruins of ancient Athens, Olympia, Ireon/ Heraion and everywhere else! 

‘Archi’ – is from the Hellenic/ Greek word meaning ‘Beginning’

‘Tekton /Tecture’ – from the Hellenic/ Greek word ‘Techne’ – Skill – Artisan/ Craftsman – Craftsperson!

Architecture is ‘The Beginning of the Skill’!

So, Architecture or being an Architect is beyond ‘building’ as in ‘construction’ as in mud huts, bricks, timber, concrete etc.

We are The Architects of our Architecture… 

We Plan,  Design,  Construct, Evolve… Travel – Reside – Travel

Structure – Life or as in a Building, or as in my Profession, a Painting!

Advertisements

I enjoy Architecture so much, that in most of my Luxury Paintings, it is likely that there will be some form of Architecture incorporated into my artwork.

Sometimes, the Architecture is the whole process, not just the visual or visual outcome – product/ product of Creation…

Touring the most magnificent Architectural sites of early ‘civilisation’, was indeed visually confronting and an amazing experience to say the least!

Statues of people, lions, animals, Corinthian pillars, antiquities, part ancestry, part mystery and all a priceless education.

Flashes of Architecture, Art, Sculpture, Character Houses with Expressions.

Blue and white – ocean, sky, green shrubs, trees, rubble and golden sunshine beaming into my eyes, as I looked on at the shadowy silhouettes from my surroundings.

Yes, it was exciting and a wonderful memory! 

I was introduced to ancient Hellenic culture; inventions; arts, architecture – The Parthenon at the Acropolis, science, mathematics – Pythagoras, philosophy, medicine, diversity, Hellenic mythology, history, cuisine, olive oil, goats, donkeys, horses, the aroma of Ouzo, travelling market garden sellers, three wheeler trucks and that the ocean in this part of the world, was not inhabited with sharks!

Advertisements

Since that time, I have travelled to diverse destinations, mystical lands of various cultures and have discovered, learnt, worked, observed and enjoyed Architecture right up to present.

I see how the rest of the world has influenced Australia my country of birth and in particular South Australia; grand old houses that once belonged to British lords, Mediterranean naval villa’s, Stationmaster cottages, Dutch dwellings, Corinthian pillars, Meanders, Greek and Chinese key motifs, modern Iranian architecture, Spanish villas and so on…

As my Artwork of luxury paintings are expressively created – evolving; painting, designing,  graphic digital images, photography and jewellery/ jewelry design all naturally include a significant influence of Architecture.

Advertisements

‘Structure?’ Okay! Lets not complicate it! Simply, Yes of course! Look deeper and deeper into the abstract and expressionism!

Architecture has inspired my life, thoughts, feelings and creativity in every possible way.

My Luxury Paintings /Artworks at Luxury Paintings by MHAngelis – Marisa Angelis -Are influenced by Architecture;

Advertisements
Advertisements

For example:  What is ? ₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪₪

Is it a ‘Grecian Key’ or a ‘Greek Fret’ ?

Is it an Ancient Hellenic Design used in Architecture and Art?

Is it a Greek Motif used time and time again everywhere around and throughout the world and in important buildings of governance – notoriety – nobility or Art Deco era Architecture?

This Design is the ‘Meandros’ or commonly known in English as ‘Meander’ 

Meandros is named after the twisting and turning path of the Maeander River in Asia Minor/ Anatolia, Anatole – Hellenic Greek – part of my ancestry – now Turkey. The Meandros is featured prominently in Hellenic Architecture because it belongs to the Hellenic/ Greek Empire.

Advertisements

You may notice that I incorporate this architectural design into my website. You may also notice that I sometimes incorporate this architectural design or architecture into my artwork -> Luxury Art Paintings, -> Luxury Necklaces and other Art Pieces – It Remains Forever Embedded Into My Creative Being – Here is an example;

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!”

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!
