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

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)

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’ !

“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!
