Visual Verse Published my New Poem “Abstract Dream”!
This month I have participated to the monthly writing event that brings together Art and Words on VisualVerse.org Anthology Press.
Today my new poem was published!
The image that you see here above is the starting point assigned this month by Visual Verse it is a challenge, you have one hour to write between 50 to 500 words. I had to write inspired by the image. I like to participate to this writing event, I find it to be very interesting and challenging for me that I am a visual artist and I love to illustrate and combine images with words.
I am happy to share this with you all! This is a nice achievement of my creative writings. My poem is now part Visual Verse Anthology Literary Press and published on another of their Chapter.
This is a link to the Archive with all the images and writings published until now!
I am so happy that my writings are included in this innovative Anthology Press, this is another way for my voice as an Artist to be heard.

I hope you all had great Holidays with family and loved ones. The 2018 is here!
A new year is a fresh start for a new beginning, hope and realization of dreams, may the beginning of this year fill you with love, inspiration and new strength to succeed in what you love.
Today I have a wonderful news!
I am so happy and honored to announce that I am one of the six “Winners” chosen by UntwineAustralia participating to their first word prompt Contest for 2018 @untwine.australia#newbeginnings I have participated on Instagram posting my Watercolor – Graphite painting “Mystical Multitude”.
This Contest was open to writers, artists and photographers, inspired by the combination of Words with Images. I love to write Poetry, Haiku and Short Stories when they are whispered to my soul. As a Visual Artist this time I decided to only post my painting as the speaking image. In art often you no need words the painting will speak to your soul and you will read what you feel into it.
“Mystical Multitude” this is my meaning behind the painting, is inspired by how our emotions are flowing together in our reality, how feelings can transport us in many directions and how much we emotionally change. This portrait shows three different faces of women, but in a mystical and dreamy way it represents one person, the same woman in different moments and emotional state of her life, going through, transformation and changes”.
I felt that this painting was perfect to visually illustrate the prompt word “New Beginnings” and I am so happy that Untwine Australia like it too! ❤
Yesterday I was tagged on Instagram with these two beautiful posts!
Thank you so much Untwine Australia, Untwine.mefor loving my Art as much to make me a winner of #newbeginnings A special thanks goes also to the wonderful Editor in Chief, writer Jennifer Calvert of Ink And Quill
A great start of the year THANK YOU!

A special Thank you, goes to the Band RiGNA FOLK for the great idea and suggestion to me, to create this video as combination of their music with my art. And I am honored that they let me use their beautiful music as soundtrack to my paintings! Thank you so much Viktor Nordir.
Who follows me for longer time knows that I love music, but also that I have a very specific and not so commercial taste and I love to introduce you with the bands I like or discover! I also have posted here on the Blog experiences attending live concerts, Interviews with independent artists and videos! I like to use my Art collaborating with music artists. I have created paintings and portraits dedicated to music artists as Fan Art! My collection is named “Art For Music” as an independent artist myself, I love when we can support each other or I can support someone else dream.
This video happened magically while replying each other comments on Instagram!
Viktor, frontmen of the band had this idea, while commenting on my recent paintings and I found it to be a awesome idea that I had to bring it alive!
I think the song I chose is “Zone II” from their album “Astropolis” and it match greatly with my Art.
On the Rigna Folk website you can read their Blog Post about this: Collaboration with two artists from the US and Macedonia
RiGNA FOLK is a band from Germany, we follow each other from a while now, I love their music and they love my art! I think is beautiful to cross paths!
They are a great indie band! I love their alternative, post rock music “Rigna Folk is a band that creates a parallel world. A rainy, dreamy world that, supported by music, is constantly changing and expanding: sound-painting like Sigur Rós, pictorially like Pink Floyd, as experimental as Radiohead”. They produced several Albums and their discography is growing more with a coming very soon new album!
Recently they performed a great cover “David Bowie, Space Oddity song” you can find it on their YouTube channel!
If you like this music genre, I really suggest you to check their music out!
Today post is about one of the many beautiful oil paintings created by my Dad, the number one Artist in my life. I grow up exposed to his beautiful art and creativity and I am so thankful for it! Today here in USA is Father’s Day but not in Italy where my Dad and Mom are still living! ❤️ I wanted to share this small oval painting that I have here with me part of a series of Italian landscape views. I love to share this as a testimony of his art and honored him today! His painting style range from small sizes like this one to large canvas. My dad started painting at very early age on his own he was a child and at 11 years old he was already painting beautifully like an adult experienced oil painter artist. Through his life he painted beautiful floral compositions, landscapes, seascapes amazing view of the world and of Italy, nonetheless he explored many different art styles, from Impressionism to Surrealism and Modern, Sacred his variety took him creating with an open mind on creativity, the techniques, the color palette used in any painting he made are beautiful! Prize winner on several Group Exhibits in Italy during late 70s – 80s his paintings also were sold by galleries and imported around Europe and from what I remember here in US. Right now he loves to see what I am creating, he still painting not much like years ago, but his mind would be always creative and artistic. Thank you for your art Papa’! ❤
This month I participate again to this interesting monthly writing event that brings together Art and Words on VisualVerse.org Anthology Press.
Today my new poem was published, this poem is not even here on my Blog yet!

I am very happy to share this with you all as a nice achievement of my creative writing and that now my poem is part of this interesting Anthology Literary Press and published on another of their Chapter.
